Grizzry Panda Archive

I am totally in love with Grizzry Panda right now–I bet you never would have guessed, given at how closely I guard this secret. My sculptor crush only had a few figures at Treasure Festa, but as always they were built to impress and surely drew quite a crowd. The teased Akane from Vividred Operation was there, being everything the GSC version is not: mainly, totally awesome and wonderful and sigh why has no one signed Grizzry yet?!
He also had his Altines, finally painted after all these months! She had a companion figure, the wow-worthy Altlene who I would like a PVC version of right now than you very much. From Alter preferably. Seriously, I’m sure at this point he’s been scoped out like Kiking and countless other sculptors before him–maybe no company has offered up enough money yet? Or perhaps Grizzry just really loves the gk scene?

Sure, Good Smile Company’s Akane Isshiki is cute, but I’ve made it no secret that I think it’s a huge waste of the sculptor Kiking’s talent and overall kind of bland given what they could have done with the character. Her band/parade uniform is just so much cooler! It’s just my luck that my current garage kit circle crush, Girzzry Panda, has made the totally perfect Akane that I’ve been dying for.. because I can’t have her. *sob*
This kit is set to be released at Treasure Festa in Ariake 9, which takes place on May 5th. Of course it’s a kit, so you need 1) the money to buy it, 2) the lightning speed to get to their booth in time to buy one of the limited kits and 3) the skills to paint and assemble it. Sadly I have none of these! And looking at their 3D colored images of her, damn, she’s going to be lovely!

Grizzry Panda is one of my absolute favorite garage kit circles, churning out a seemingly endless number of adorable sculpts–most of them based on the popular Miku Hatsune. One of their Winter Wonder Festival releases was Odds & Ends Miku, who we have seen in custom Nendoroid form in the past. Grizzry often doesn’t paint their figures before release: we get the 3D sculpt and then the unpainted physical sculpt. Today we’re taking a look at a talented gk maker’s work on the piece!
This Miku is just so cute I could die! She’s one of the more mature Miku designs taken on by Grizzry, but she’s still got that signature round face that pops up on most of his sculpts. And of course the paintwork, by BEAST, is just stunning. If only Good Smile could make a Miku just like this!

Busou Shinki is pretty damn popular… when it comes to action figures. As soon as you look at scaled figures, though, there’s nothing. Which is weird, right? Well, we finally have one! It’s not a production figure but a garage kit from my favorite maker Grizzry Panda of Altines. And holy cow is she gorgeous! Oh Grizzry, why do you make so many beautiful things. Goddess Madoka, Tell Your World Miku, now this. Sigh. Someone pick him up as a sculptor for a PVC company! Altines doesn’t have a release schedule yet, but I highly suspect that she will pop up at Winter Wonder Festival.

Grizzry Panda, producer of kits like Goddess Madoka and Tell Your World Miku, is quickly becoming one of my favorite garage kit circles. His work is totally amazing, especially when it comes to Mikus! The sculpts tend to be of unique Miku outfits we don’t usually see: this time it’s Dark Angel Miku, complete with drill-locks! This is the 3D render, though the final product should look identical to it. The kit will be released at Treasure Festa in Kobe 4 on October 28th, and I expect a quick sellout so if you happen to live in Japan (and, you know, can paint resin!) be sure to get in line early.

When I first saw the cover for ‘Tell Your World’ my first thought was “this would make an amazing figure!” It’s slightly different from the normal Miku, with a more fashion-forward outfit, bright pops of color, and an awesome spin on her twintails. Well, she has a figure now, though not exactly the one I’d like since this is a garage kit by Grizzry Panda, who has done some spectacular work in the past like that jaw-dropping Goddess Madoka and Homura & Mami, along with a few kits from this past Wonder Festival.
This Miku actually was a Summer WonFest release, though we didn’t get colored images until now for some reason. What a tease! Of course given how popular the circle is, I’m sure you can hunt this down on Yahoo Japan or Mandarake. That is if you have the talent to make her or the money for a commission! For the rest of us, let’s all pray to the PVC gods in unison for a regular release.

[note: this post contains spoilers for Madoka Magica]
The second Madoka’s Ultimate form appeared on screen, I’m sure we all knew we would be getting a million figures of this amazing design. Long pink twintails + wings + a million ruffles + a skirt that contains the universe… yeah, that’s a winning combo! We’ve gotten a Petit Nendoroid of her and Good Smile Company is doing a pretty epic scaled version of her, but I’ll be honest: this garage kits has totally stolen my heart!
We first saw this unpainted at Treasure Festa, and the circle (Grizzry Panda) does absolutely stunning work–just take a look at their Homura and Mami! Madoka is just draw-droppingly, heartbreakingly beautiful. The soft pose is perfect for Madoka, and I just love the shading. Of course it’s a garage kit and will be nearly impossible to get (plus it’s unpainted)–it was released at Treasure Festa but I expect it to pop up at Summer Wonder Festival as well. If you DO manage to get one you’re looking at at least ¥10,000 (the base price of the kit) plus proxy fees/after-market prices as well as painting. But if there was ever a figure worth all that work, it’d be this one!

Good Smile Company’s Madoka Magica line has left something to be desired. While the quality is great and they seem very accurate to the animation models, the poses are boring, to put it politely. Madoka isn’t exactly a boring show where pretty girls stand around and do nothing, so there’s been a big push for some more dynamic figures of the girls. Now we don’t usually post about garage kits here, but I just couldn’t resist sharing these two stunning pieces–this, I think, is exactly what fans want!
Homura is so effortlessly graceful, the face is perfect and those weapons are just fantastic! I honestly think it would be very hard to make a Homu Homu that was better-executed than this one. Mami looks fantastic too, though it doesn’t top Tsuru no Yakata’s Mami for me. Both kits retail for the ridiculously low price of ¥8,000, way less than most elaborate gks. Mami was already released at this summer’s Wonder Festival, but Homura is coming out on December 18th. Of course you have to assemble and paint these yourself! For those of us without painting talent we just have to hope that some company picks these up for a PVC run, or that we can find someone to do the work for us!
[UPDATE] Homura will be available at Treasure Fest in Ariake. Thanks Kikirowr!
