If there's one thing I want to know about this industry, it's how Good Smile Company picks the licenses to make Nendoroids for. At this point their Nendoroid production line must be a well-oiled machine, possibly on its way t...

Tomopop Review: Phat Company's Caster EXTRA

May 18 // Tianxiao Ma
Figure Name: Caster EXTRAFigure Maker: Phat CompanyRetail Price: ¥8,381Available at: HobbyLink Japan  I wouldn't have pegged myself as a fan of kemonomimi and all that, but I guess I do have a soft spot for fox girls (and wolf girls who happen to look like fox girls). Maybe that's why I ended up requesting Caster for review. The figure doesn't require much assembly, thankfully. You just need to attach her left leg to the base, and put a little paper talisman into her right hand. I totally forgot to do that so in this review, it just kind of looks like she's doing finger guns. This rendition of Caster is... interesting. She has a gothic lolita-style outfit which shows a ton of cleavage. I'm not the biggest fan of this kind of bust. The base features a set of translucent rings forming the "CCC" logo. I'm ecstatic that Phat Company decided to do something cool with the base instead of opting for a plain disc. Caster has a wonderful face full of cheer. Phat Company did a great job making this figure lively. Her tail and hair are made of translucent plastic. The effect works fine for the hair, but is less convincing for the tail. I think it already looks big and fluffy enough. If you get up close with a camera, you'll notice a few rough spots in the finish. These flaws are difficult to see with the naked eye, though. Caster was fun to shoot. I find that sometimes, if a character design looks energetic, it gives me a little extra spark too. With a cute face and quirky design, this figure has the most important qualities that matter to me. Phat Company can improve on the build quality a bit, but overall I'm happy with Caster. The MSRP is on the high end for a 1/8-scale figure, but this one is fairly large and complex for its scale. [Thanks to HobbyLink Japan for the review sample!]
Phat Company Caster EXTRA photo
Definitely something extra in the chest
Keeping track of the various casts of the Fate franchise is beyond my patience, so I'll just say this Caster is the one featured in Fate/Extra CCC. The original Caster in Fate/stay night was rather dour while this one is... I...
