My First 1/8 Scale Pre-Painted PVC Figure

Sometimes curiosity can cause me to find some interesting or mortifying images in Google Search engine results. Sometimes I end up finding wonderful things such as a 1/8 scale pre-painted PVC Ky Kiske figurine; one of the poster boys for the fighting game Guilty Gear.

Long ago, I used to buy posters of my current favorite video game or anime series and place those posters on a wall in my room.  Eventually, it became annoying always trying to find space for these posters or taking down posters whenever I lost my love for the characters on those posters.  Also, long ago, the majority of 1/8 figurines were of female characters and my image of people who collected those figurines was pretty much this:

I pre-ordered the Ky Kiske figurine from Play-Asia and after a two month delay, I finally received my figurine.  I no longer have that image of a fat otaku breathing heavily over several figurines of cutesy or barely dressed female characters.    The Ky Kiske figurine is highly detailed and came with interesting choices.

If only my Ken dolls had these many options. Maybe there would have been more Ken dolls in my house.  For some reason, Ky’s sword is loose in his hand.  I am pleased with the figurine.  The figurine is a 1/8 scale, which I placed on the shelf above my bed.  Doing so did not take anywhere as much space as hanging up a poster.

For anyone who’s curious, there are other Guilty Gear figurines available on Play-Asia such as Sol Badguy and two versions of Ramlethal are available for purchase or pre-order.  I don’t plan to buy another Guilty Gear figure in the near future so head on over to Play-Asia if you’re a fan of Sol Badguy, Ky Kiske, or Ramlethal.

Due to work, life, and college, I ignored my hobbies (anime, video games, manga, writing, and drawing) for a very long time. Now with a lot of time on my hands, I feel like having fun again and trying to get back into my old hobbies.
