Otakon 2011 Figure Report - Maryceles
12 Aug 2011 05:00:09
We're at the halfway point of my reports on the figures that I got at Otakon. For this report, I am winding things down when it comes to Busou Shinki. However, I have plenty of stuff this here (especially if you have a 3DS, which is now $170 at Wal-Mart at least).
Without further ado, here's Maryceles.
Dealer Where the Figure Got Purchased: Image Anime (I think it was that dealer, based on map of the Dealers' Room and my memory the dealers' layout)
Purchase Price: $88 (without tax and credit card fee)
Maryceles was one of those Busou Shinki figures that got interest my interest as time went by, but never really got a chance to buy (as I had bigger priorities other than shopping for figures that I didn't pre-order). Luckily, I was able to find her Saturday afternoon at Otakon. So that definitely pleased me.
Starting things off, here's the basic look for Maryceles (with me preferring the "hat" look over the "buns" look.
To me, this appearance definitely has her come off as a quiet, youthful Busou Shinki (one who'd probably uses brains over brawn in battle).
Of course, Maryceles, when it comes to people who are showcasing the figure, isn't complete without her tentacle armor.
Originally, I was going to include another picture in this set, one that depicts Maryceles using her tentacle armor for full body protection (i.e. her torso is covered by the tentacles). However, upon reviewing the photos on a computer, I realized that the photo didn't look "good", and trying to fix it in Photoshop wasn't going to work. Hence, I was forced to scrap that photo.
Failed photo attempt aside, here's my main pose picture of Maryceles.
As I noticed some time after taking this picture, there's something "angelic" about Maryceles in this pose (even more angelic than Arnval).
Of course, given the way her tentacles are sticking out, it was a no-brainer that I also has a take of picture of Maryceles in 3D.
Finally, with all the Busou Shinki figures I picked up at Otakon, I felt that I needed to find a new place to display them. Luckily, I found a good spot for them on top of my dresser.
The best part: along with the 2D photo, I also took numerous pictures of the figures in 3D as well. So, for those people with 3DS systems, please enjoy the following pictures:
