Preview of Completed 1/8 Scale Aisaka Taiga figure by Wave~!

In the previous post, I’ve included Wave’s 1/8 figure of Taiga in her beauty pageant costume as one of my top favorites from WonFes Summer 2009. She was still unpainted at the time, but in the Tokyo Figure Show, she’s revealed in her full glory~! <3

Taigaaaaa~ She's so adorable~

Taiga, looking so adorable and cheerful as she danced the night away during the dance at the school festival. Just looking at her makes me remember the moment she was stood up by her father during the school festival — it was just so heartbreaking that I cried. Will definitely make room for her in my future room! Now I have to worry about how to make sure she would stay clean.

Totally love the intricate details of the tiara. I also love Taiga’s pose here… I’ve browsed through some of the Taiga figures that are available, and the poses are most of the time just copied from manga covers… I am unsure if this pose was from an illustration as well — but I really, really love how dynamic she is here. I also love how the wings seem to have a pearly white color.

Probably the biggest let down for me is the base — if that really is the base. I’m not sure, but I think it’s supposed to depict the floor of the school gym/auditorium? Yes, I am not disappointed that her shoes seem to destroy the dress, I actually love it. I don’t remember if they actually showed Taiga wearing her regular shoes, but I couldn’t imagine Taiga killing herself over heels.

Seriously can’t wait to see announcements for her pre-order! Must know how much I need to save up for. *DETERMINED*

    Whatta lovely figure, must look into this! I agree about the shoes, and the base seems unique and homey

    Hmm, can’t say this is my kind of figure…

    If she was a giant robot though, now that’d be a different story!

    Thanks for sharing. I didn’t see this one before. She’s really lovely indeed. Being a Wave figure, she’ll probably end up in the 4,500-6,000 price range.

    I’ll definitely look forward to this Taiga figure. ^^
