My Growing Collection 50259644291_06d8e27dcf_c20200823_0012 by Gary  Menten, on Flickr


I'll keep this short. Just a quick photo of my expanded 1/6th figure collection. I got my first figure in Dec 2018, so while my collection is not so big as many others, it has grown. The newest additions are a second version of Kamiko, without her makeup or red bow, as I imagine she would remove both before going to bed or bathing and Erika's new henchman, Feldwebel Heinz Pfeffer. Lets see how many of you get that joke. The good (or evil) Feldwebel at present constitutes my only non-seamless figure. The figure, head sculpt, clothing and gear were all obtained parted out from Monkey Depot. I reasoned that since this figure would be dressed from head to foot, I did not need a seamless figure and since I need to build up lots of henchmen, it would be cheaper to get a few non seamless types. The body and head are DiD. This being said, now that I compare seamless to non-seamless figures, I find the non seamless types much lighter; so much so that the slightest breeze will knock them over. Further, they simply don't have the range of articulation as the TBLeague seamless figures and when you combine these two factors, posing them realistically becomes much harder. This being said, I will probably invest in a few more, just to have lots of cannon fodder for Kimono Troop to slaughter in battle. Wink

I'll write more about Heinz at a later date, and post some more photos of him.

As always, your feedback is much appreciated.

Wow! the ladies all look fantastic! Clever idea to build a second Kamino, especially as dressing and redressing a seamless can be challenging! I agree with you completely about the non seamless, they do not have the range of movement or stability that the TBL offers, that being said, the non seamless does look great! bounce bounce bounce

In the case of Kamiko, I had an extra body that I could dress in the kimono, or something else, or nothing, if the photo called for her to be nude, and I could just switch heads, but it annoyed me to have a headless body, so when another few of the Tomoe Gozen head sculpts became available on Monkey Depot's site a few months back I jumped on the chance to get another, though they are among the most pricey.

Tomoe head sculpt as it comes out of the box

I did the same thing in styling the hair....It does not look quite that way out of the box but opted to leave off the bow and makeup, reasoning that I could use one head sculpt with bow and makeup as necessary, an another without for other occasions.  For instance, I plan to build a sento or natural hot spring diorama eventually--part of Kimono Station's hedonistic attractions for it's hard fighting black-ops commando warrior women....

As I said, its a very clever idea to have two. It is also a great looking sculpt too! Your dio sounds interesting, looking forward too seeing it bounce bounce bounce

The head sculpt is one of the most sought after on the market as it is only sold as part of the Tomoe Gozen figure and not sold separately. The sculpt itself seems more popular than the figure. The last time Monkey Depot had any, they had at least five. I jumped on on one right away and I was right in not hesitating because they were sold out by 11PM Since they post all their new restocks around 7PM every night, they went very quickly.

Nice collection, thanks for sharing the pics.

Looks like there's a nice variation in heights of those figures. Kamiko looks a fair bit taller than the rest.

cheers bounce cheers

Kamiko is among the taller figures, however there are several just as tall. Kamiko uses an S22A Body as does Erika and Cynthia uses an S23 which is the same body but with tan skin. Further, Heidi is an S09C which is just as tall and Laura has a S32A body which again, is very tall. Kamiko looks taller because her legs are not so bent at the knees nor bent as far outwards as the others, plus, she is in front. The ones that are truly shorter are Miyori with her short and slender S24A body and Glynnis, S28A.

The tallest figure of the lot is actually Feldwebel Heinz Pfeffer, who is the only make figure and the only non-seamless figure.
