Jubei knows what is happening with the world around her. After acquiring many a variation of Jubei Yagyu, I have found myself with this particular figure in my lap: The maid costume version that come from Samurai Bride.
There are quite some things to be said about this figure, that are some things that were missed while looking at the sprite form the show, but first let’s take a look at the figure itself.
Flashing and exploding comes a creature of a new (or old) world to the place that we know as Earth. Crashing from space and coming into our lives is the latest addition to the Adventure Kartel rooster in the form of the Dead Cosmonaut Golvorez.
Packed in 3A’s signature simple package he comes in his orange tones with little accessories to surprise its owned, but with plenty of things under the belt ready to cause chaos in the life of any figure collector. Inside the box there is little to be found: Golvorez wrapped in plastic protection and only three tubes in the outside separated from the main bubble in the middle.
Daring. This figure is truly daring. After waiting for a less conservative figure of GUMI to be made, the wait is finally over. Mamama delivers a figure that not only portrays Megpoid at what could arguably be her best, but also explores a more provocative approach to the idol based vocaloids that GUMI is.
The power of V3 GUMI. It all begins with a whisper. Except it does not — this is more of an explosion of colours and shapes. One of the most noticeable things here is the use of colour theory for GUMI’s outfit. Contrary to her traditional yellow paling under her green hair, this outfit shines orange with regions of green. Not only does this bring up the green in Megpoid herself, but also proves that a well designed outfit does wonders with the right colouration and design.
Magic, absolute and simple magic. When trying different keyboards finding slight differences between switch types or the build of the board itself always proves to be something of consideration: What the keyboard is going to be used for, the kind of feedback that is being looked for, and a few other design-related notions have to be considered. Coming from a coding background and after spending most of my time writing papers and reports or gaming, I had quite an open mind for the beauty that the Happy Hacking Keyboard Professional 2 is. I was really caught of guard by the actual product.
Blasting with her charms and ripping holes thorough the very fabric of time and space comes Kotobukiya’s Megpoid with her lovely charm and incredibly sculpted being. Probably the most conservative GUMI figurine that has been sculpted up to now, this figurine displays GUMI in her traditional attire with no twists and no surprises. This is GUMI at her GUMI-est.
