[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]

Nendoroid Storage Container

I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]

Nanoha’s New Eyes Plus Dresses from BJD Atelier

It's been a while since I've posted anything on here. I've been getting a lot of questions as to whether or not I'd keep this site as I'll be working with GSC now. I'll still post here from time to time, but lately my time has been taken up by work so it won't be as often sadly. But last night I got… [more]

Griffon’s Talho, She’s not 1/6 thats for sure!

Got new Light Bulbs for better pictures the other day so to celebrate i decided to do a small review of Talho. First off as the title says, she’s listed everywhere, even on her box as 1/6 scale. Let me tell you now, NO WAY IN HELL IS SHE A 1/6 SCALE! She’s not even a 1/7 scale. Yet she’s still too big to be a 1/8 scale. Did Griffon think they would fool me? MUWAHAHAHAHAHAHA THEY CAN NEVER FOOL ME!

Now other than the problem of size, she’s actually a nice figure. When i first got into Collecting anime figures i had a strict rule of only collecting figures of characters i liked.

While it was a good rule for me since i was just starting out. it was also kinda bad since then once i finished a series, any series really. If i liked a character i would immediately look for a figure of that character. Also nice detail on her tattoo.

Talho was no exception and since i liked Eureka seven so much i just had to get my hands on a figure of her. Hey i even wanted to look like her and went out and got my hair cut just like her when i finished this series.

There were a few figures, but only this Griffon figure caught my attention. Not to mention all other Talho figures at the time were long sold out.

The pose and the body proportions i felt were much closer to her Anime Counterpart than the others.

There aren’t really any major problems with this figure. There are some seam lines on her clothes that are noticeable on her right side pictures above.

You can see a bit of panty in this shot. Also there is a piece of string that was dangling off her gun case on her right leg, didn’t notice it until now…

Since she’s getting dressed, or undressed, all depends on how you look at it. You can see a bit of panty from on top.

Her shading is also done pretty well. While her character is a bit pale so it’s expected for her to be a bit paler, they did well on shading her stomach, legs and arms.

I honestly think the only thing i don’t like much is her face. Not the sculpt, but her expression. She could suffer to be a bit happier… Plus while she has a pretty decent sized rack, no cleavage at all!

Very Nice detail on her backside as well. Her skirt is wrinkled up just right! Really, if that were a real skirt it would have that fold at the bottom just like that!

Nice detail on her boots as well. You can’t see it too well in this photo but they did a nice job on shading her boots to where there would be some wear in them.

Not the best base I’ve seen but from what I’ve seen Griffon tends to use the same kinda base for all their figures. At least her name is spellt right!

My final verdict is that this Talho figure is nice, her detail doesn’t compare to that of maybe a GSC, Alter or Max Factory figure. But i personally think it’s the best Talho figure on the market. The detail is nicely done and there aren’t any real major problems or flaws that scream “OMG stay away i’m the worst figure ever!” If you’re a fan of the series and have been looking for a Talho figure, then this is the one to track down!

    1/7.5 perhaps? Still a pretty figure regardless of the scale.

  2. I think Griffon really has their scales mixed up sometimes. Some places list Goth Punk Mikuru being 1/6 while some 1/7. I know the Haruhi is 1/7 since I own her…and I’m assuming Mikuru will be to scale.

    Lol @ scale problems. I have yet to watch E7, though I saw her already. She looks nice, but Griffon could do better I guess.

  4. Exiled says:

    In fact, all figure Griffon claimed to be 1/6 was actually around 1/7.5 to 1/7 in size

  5. louki says:

    That’s a cool figure, don’t know why but she remind me misaki-chan from “NHK ni youkoso”. I didn’t see any episode of E7 yet but that face expression didn’t correspond at her personality ? You know, just like Nagato Yuki from Shny

    Anyway, she’s very hard to find even on ebay (and if so, it will cost an arm), so take good care of her ^^

    Oh, and i wanted to say that you’ve take greats shots for this review but compared with some olders reviews, i find that your talent of photograph really “pierce the heavens” when you do outside shots. I really hope that you’ll do more outside shots in the future ^^

    @deftoned:
    maybe 1/7.5

    @ClearTranquil:
    What bugs me the most is that it even says 1/6 on her box

    @Panther:
    E7 is awesome!

    @Exiled:
    i do wonder why they do that

    @louki:
    I have been wanting to do more outdoor shoots, but lately it’s either too hot or not enough sun…

  7. otaku dan says:

    she is pretty hot but i think they could have done better with her expression, she looks really bored.

    Griffon Ent. lives in a parallel where dimensions, distances, scales aren’t the same. That the only explaination I have…

    Talho is so damn gorgeous. One the most sexiest anime girl imo ^^;
    And this figure does reflect that quite well.

    Nice new lighting!

    I do like that figure… but I dont like her real eyes…. they seem too flat. Everything else is great though.

    On a somewhat related topic- why do all the figures of Talho have brown eyes when she has green eyes in the anime??
