Hello, Im still on vacation, but I’ve prepared most of this posts content before my departure.
With no real new figure around, Max Factories Tamaki Kousaka which I received recently would be good review material. It’s a figure from 2010, but sometimes you’ll learn to appreciate a figure just a few years after it’s initial release, for me it happened with this certain Tamaki Kousaka.
As I saw Tamaki in reviews a few years ago, I liked her, but had the impression that her boobs were several cup sizes too big XD Well, the taste of a figure collector can change over the years and I now I actually have a liking to figures with a fairly sized bosom like Menace or Sonico.
A few weeks ago I saw pictures of her again and felt the urge to get this figure no matter what.
In fact it turned out quite difficult to find this rare figure, thx to my buddy ManstraCustom @ MFC I was able to get her on Mandarake. It wasn’t cheap and the shipping procedure was kind of nerve wrecking, but the figure was more than worth all the trouble, I can tell you this in advance.
This Tamaki Kousaka figure was made by Max Factory and released in May 2012. She is scaled 1/6 and the kneeing height of her measures around 180 mm. She comes with a round brown base with soft white floor on top. Sculptor ELLIOT was in charge of a number of Tamaki Kousaka figure adaptions, but this certain one is a little different, but we’ll keep this for later.
Her origin is the popular To Heart 2 dating game /anime, I don’t know why it’s that popular, so far everything I’ve seen from this anime was kind of boring, maybe the games are better ^^.
Tamaki is a redhead, she has nice long hair, actually Tamaki is my first figure with red hair and I really like it ^-^. The hair is very well sculpted and shows many detailed strands with a few brighter shading effects. The shape of her face is soft and round which gives her a much more kind and innocent aura than the predator look Tamaki has in the anime.
Her mouth slightly resmbles the one from anime cats, the gentle smile on her face is awesome.
On her cheeks Tamaki also features adorable blush marks what I really appreciate, another great part of her face are detailed eyes with the glossy finish. The way this figure is looking torwards the viewer is quite enchanting, it seems like she’s in love with the person in front of her.
Tamaki has a overall nicely sculpted body, like her face, the shape of her body appears very soft and rounded as well. This slightly chubbiness in combination with her pure and innocent aura suits her very good. The skintone is is also very well done and looks great in natural light, it’s the right amount of pale and tanned. The subtle shading adds the final touch to her skin.
Tamaki is showing a lot of skin, but she still has this innocent flair around her, she is wearing white stockings, pink underwear and the shirt of her school uniform. With her hands she tries to cover her boobs, but what can she do with just the petite hands of hers, they are spilling over XD
The level of detail at her hands is remarkable, they appear somewhat realistic in shape and the finger look just great with the accentuated finger joints and painted nails.
She has nice shoulders, collarbones, thighs and a cute belly. The decision to equip Tamaki with something around a J-Cup was a rather brave one, I know a number of people that are no too fond of boobs that large. PersonallyI like big boobs on my figures, but this is still a bit much, well the overall figure is so lovely that I can show a little more tolerance, than I would usually do.
This Tamaki figure is an really adorable piece of figure craftsmanship, her attractive body and the innocent facial expression are enchanting, she is showing a good combination of sexy and cute. There are many nice details I like about this figure, the size of her boobs could be a little smaller in my opinion, but Im glad that I purchased her and overall Im more than satisfied with this figure.
It seems every serious figure collector has to own at least a single Tamaki Kousaka figure and with this purchase I did my part XD Her character isn’t one of my favorite anime characters I don’t even know much about her to be honest, but I really like Max Factories adaption of her character.
This figure has been around since May 2010, so my review of her isn’t the first one of course, other reviews can be found at
