Hi today we’ll take a look at little miss sunshine, Inaba Rinne manufactured by MegaHouse.
Inaba Rinne was released in the middle of November 2013, she was sculpted by Kibayashi Norio, who already worked on many, many, many Queen’s Blade figures for MegaHouse.
Her origin is Chousoku Henkei Gyrozetter an 51 episode long anime aimed at the younger audience. Wow it nearly aired around a year. Actually I didn’t watch a single episode of it.
MegaHouse picked two of the shows heroines, Inaba Rinne and the slightly hotter Rui Akana,
I don’t know how popular Gyrozetter really is, but I like that MegaHouse didn’t just throw out soulless merchandise figures of another “random” anime. Rinne comes with an unexpected amount of parts, like a second head, an alternative left arm, a right hand and alternative boots.
Hair & Face
Rinne is a teenager, her age must be between 10 or 12, I guess. As such she has a lot of cuteness. I really like the atmosphere this energetic little lady radiates, she has a round head with cute ears. The facial details, like the sparkling eyes, the little blush, the nose or the open mouth with the upper front line give Rinne something truly adorable and enchanting. Her second face is also pretty, yet with the closed mouth it shows a more determined expression.
She has brown hair with some shading here and there, her hairstyle is a voluminous side ponytail, decorated with a butterfly hairband. She is wearing her bangs in an divided fashion with stronger deep hanging strands on the right and a full forehead on the left, the curl at the tip of the ponytail is cute. Overall her hair seems to be a bit too close to the simple anime design, a few more strands in her hair would have been nicer for this figure.
Outfit & Body
What I liked about Inaba Rinne at first were her clothes, she’s a fashionable girl, her salmon red shirt has an interesting design with the wide collar and how the sleeves are attached to it.
The garters of her underwear top are wrapped around her neck, which creates a nice look. The white frill on and under her top is really cute, the yellow shorts are also really nice, it is something different once in a while next to all these figures with skirts, I guess this is my first figure with trousers. At her legs she has only one white – blue striped stocking.
Girls need their handbags to carry all their necessities and un – necessities along, also Rinne has a detailed one swung around her neck.
I think the pose of this figure is very well done, it captures her during skating/running on one leg, it’s cute how she balances with her arms and upper body with the other arm attached it looks more as if she is accelerating passionately.
She has special boots that can be transformed into three wheel roller skates, you have the option to display the figure with the boots that show the wheels out or the retracted version.
You can notice that the sculptor has done a number of Queen’s Blade figures before, when you see that he even implemented a well thought cast off option for Rinne, you can take off the yellow trousers and the frilly part of her top, of course Rinne isn’t nude underneath and wears pink panties. One blogger also ripped off her top, which shouldn’t be done after all, but there is a fully sculpted pink tank top underneath, nevertheless.
It’s always a little weird to talk about physical aspects when the figure is based on a young character, but anyway Rinne has a nicely shaped butt and also her waist is nicely sculpted.
She will become a beautiful lady in the near future
I love my cheerful and super cute Inaba Rinne a lot, she is a little sunshine on my messy desk.
MegaHouse put quite some effort in making a lovely figure of Inaba Rinne, she has a very good quality and the different parts and display options make her a good deal. I ordered a number of figures in this year I didn’t really need and didn’t felt happy with after all, KOBATO!!! for example, but with Rinne, I made the right choice. I got her for 5918 Yen at AmiAmi, she’s still available.
Afaik only 6 people on MFC ordered her which I find a bit strange since this one a is a great example of a figure that captures the charm of a cheerful and innocent young girl.
In case I won’t post anything befor christmas, Im wishing you happy holidays.
