Hellooo, this is clockheart (Hallower) and this is my first review, and I’ll do it with one of my fave Figma, Disney’s Fireball: Drossel XD
I hope you like it, I’m still trying to make a good review >__<
Fireball (Faiaboru) is a series of CGI anime shorts created by Toei Animation in conjunction with Disney. The designer is Hitoshi Fukuchi, It is animated entirely in 3D with no cel-shading of any sort, as would be typical for the medium.
The show takes place in the distant future of the 49th millennium, and revolves around the happenings inside a giant manor (named ‘Tempest Tower’) inhabited by two robots.
They are the gynoid duchess Drossel von Flügel (title and full name: the 19th Lord of Uranos’ Kingdom’s Tempest Domain, Drossel Juno Vierzehntes Heizregister Fürstin von Flügel; voiced by Miyuki Kawasho) and her massive cyclopian servant, Gedächtnis (voiced by Toru Okawa).
The episodes are usually nonsensical in nature, normally showing the two characters making idle conversation in the midst of a war with humanity. A third character, a monkey-robot named “Schadenfreude”, joins them later.
Well, actually I haven’t see the movie by myself, just some short clips from bonus DvD that includes in Figma Drossel gizmo version.
Now, let us check what is in the package 🙂
Note: You may click the image for bigger resolution
This is the front view of the box, as you can see, it’s seems monochrome except for the book and eyes, and that’s what makes the drossel awesome! XD
And let us check the back view from the package
Now, this is what inside the package, a full set of figma drossel in hard plastic case
Here is what inside the hard plastic, the figure, an interchangable hands, figma stand, the headset, head truster, a book and a paper to show how to change the drossel’s head accessories.
full set of figma Drossel
The basic Drossel, as you can see in the picture, with the “glowing like” blue eyes, fully poseable with the twintail.
The original Max Factory Drossel can be seen much from the eyes and painting, especially, the “drossel” behind her head, and small words on her right twintail.
Now, after seeing the basic Drossel out of box, now let’s go to see the head accessories, you’ll get, a twintail, a head set, and a pair of trusters.
This is the close up pict of drossel’s back head, you can see both of the hole on her head to put the accessories.
Mine is not perfect, the right hole is pretty damage, since I had one with broken twintail, and I should use some “help” for taking the twin tail pin that left on her head.
Well, enough with the defect, let’s check the twintail and her fave pose in her CG animation 😛
Well, actually the hip articulations isn’t that good in my opinion, I don’t know about the other Drossel, but in mine, it’s kinda loose.
The tiwntail is really poseable, it’s only a full twintail but the joint to her head is a simple ball joint, to make it fully poseable, but the joint is FRAGILE, so be careful when you play with it 🙂
after seeing her twintail, let’s check the headset, I don’t know what is this use for actually, a battle headgear?
I’ve seen the disney’s short clips, but I haven’t seen this one, it’s very cool, as you can see, this headset has a hole in each round shape that hold the blue kind of ribbon, that hole is used to adjust the headset on her black peg on her cheeks 🙂
and see some ways how she used her headset
And this is her headset seen from the back, and also how I used the headgear to cover her eyes, so robotic and cool!! XD I love this headgear!
and she also could have her twintail and headset both on her head…but not with her truster..it’s too big, hahahaha
ok, let’s move on to the head truster as we seen in her animation.
This truster used to push her fly onto the sky 🙂
it’s big, but the figma joint could handle her well, and also, it’s still keep her balance in standard pose, and I love the painting on her truster.
Now let’s see how the truster set when it use to fly
This truster set up it’s wing and the main truster shows up, in her animation, we could see her trying many poses and words to fly, but her “sensual” pose just do it, and the truster push her fly verticaly 😀
And for the last…Drossel want to go to sleep and ask me to read her favourite bed-time story 😀
