The 1/7 Scale Figure of Megumi Kato from Saekano was released more than a month ago. Though a bit late to the party, I still bring you the unboxing of this beautiful figure.
The figure is based on the illustration of Misaki Kurehito. The illustration that comes with the figure as a limited edition postcard. You can see the image of the postcard way below. The figure was sculpted by Urakawa Akinori.
At 1/7 scale, the figure stands at 9.36 inches so she is pretty tall compared to Good Smile Company’s previous releases of Sawamura Spencer Eriri and Kasumigaoka Utaha. As with the other two Saekano figures by Good Smile Company, this one also features the heroine in a state of getting dressed. Megumi is wearing her iconic heroine outfit.
And now we proceed with the unboxing. There are NSFW images below so keep this in mind before scrolling down.
Below is the box which is average in size so shipping the figure didn’t cost a boatload of money. Grab this figure before they all disappear as prices are expected to peak soon.
Here is the back of the box with a character illustration.
Out of the box you go. You can see the figure, the beret (which is her only accessory) and the fluffy base akin to this figure line.
Here is a closer view of the figure still in it’s plastic prison.
A closeup of the figure shows that Megumi is blushing as she is getting dressed. From this picture alone, you can tell that the face is really well done.
Here’s a view from another angle showing a hint of cleavage.
The figure has been released and here are the contents of the box.
To remove the plastic between the inner parts, the figure can be disassembled as you can see below.
Here’s a closeup of the juicy bits.
Here is the base for the figure, you can see the pegs where the figure can be attached. The pegs are rather small so she is easily disattached from the base. Take extra care when moving the figure as it may fall down.
Almost forgot about the postcard with the illustration from Misaki Kurehito, which was quietly sitting at the bottom of the box.
Here is the complete figure. Do forgive the lighting as the picture was taken mid day and I didn’t realize there was too much sunlight. Here’s a link to the official image if you want another look.
The figure is now attached to the base. Note that the base of this figure is really sensitive to dust. Over time, the fluffy area will turn brownish due to dust buildup so it highly recommended to keep the figure in an enclosed glass cabinet. I’ve had this issue with the Utaha Kamigaoka figure with the same base and so I emailed Good Smile Company about the issue and they recommended washing the base with water. I used distilled water to wash the base. The water in our area is hard, and it might leave some yellowish stains. If you have the same kind of tap water, I would recommend using distilled water as well.
Below you can see the skirt with the ribbon and jacket. There’s not a lot of details when it comes to colors n the figure but I’d say the paint job is top notch.
The sculpt on the frills of the skirt and the knee-highs is exceptional and looks realistic.
Here’s the figure shot from a low angle.
Here’s a close-up of the face with the beret. You can see that the brown hair is painted with a gradient. The figure’s hair turns purple at the ends. The eyes are also painted very beautifully. The same blushing expression can be seen from the other two figures from this line.
From this view, we can see more of the cleavage and a peek at the bra. The hands look weird from this angle but I can tell you that they don’t look weird at all when you look at the actual figure.
That concludes our unboxing of Megumi Kato’s 1/7 Scale Figure by Good Smile Company.
