Say I Do to pre-ordering this latest Tamaki
Beat - 1/6 Scale
The Tamakis never stop coming, with Beat stepping up to the plate with this latest offering. Perhaps it's just me, but given Japan's wedding dress fetish in art I'm getting the same sort of vibe from this figure. I know it's almost certainly just from the white coloring and lacy frills, but then again, when anime does wedding gowns, they're not exactly known for being the most modest in the first place.
Overall, like most Tamaki figures, I do like this one though. I'm a bit put off by the unrealistic modeling of her chest, unfortunately, but as for the rest it's pretty appealing. I like the details in her corset and the expression she's wearing, and, as always, the particular attention paid to her infamous fiery hair.
My only other concern is, given the slightly awkward pose I feel like Beat should have made this a figure with a base that is more conducive to laying back, like is seen in the original illustration. Something cushiony like the Love is Mine Miku or even a carpeted base like some others. Either way, interested parties will be able to pick her up in April for about ¥9,200.
