Earlier this year Max Factory made available the Samurai (Katanako) from imagepoch's 2011 PlayStation Portable role-playing game 7th Dragon 2020 that carried with it a unique style in character design making for a beautiful figure. For those yearning more of the beauty that is artist Shirow Miwa in figure form, you're in luck with Mikatan posting a preview of one of the new classes from this title.
Originally displayed at Wonder Festival 2012 Summer in July, a new update and better look at the 1/7-scale Hacker (Chelsea) is finally available. The art style of Shirow Miwa is very evident at first glance of this figure from the long legs, the detail of the outfit, and attention to the hair. It's definitely a step well above the design of the Samurai. There's so much to look at from the various pieces of laces to the ruffles of her dress. Great care has gone into this figure to even adding additional details to the hair and twin tails that is not commonly seen. I love the added lines and paint job on the hair. It gives the figure so much more definition. Of course we cannot forget the face. Those piercing eyes look excellent, almost fitting of the gothic lolita who will belittle you and destroy all your self-worth. ...wait, that's not good!
I cannot stop marveling at every bit of work that went into the 1/7-scale Hacker from 7th Dragon 2020. There is just too much to talk about. See manufacturers! This is how you make a bigger scaled figure! The question is will Good Smile deliver when this figure comes off the manufacturing line in 2013? I guess we'll see when it gets delayed seven times over for quality assurance.
