Steins;Gate – Makise Kurisu by GSC
Birthday: 25 July
Height: 160 cm
Weight: 45 kg
The female protagonist. A research member in Victor Qondria University’s Brain Research Program (age group matches that of third-year high school, but skipped a grade through America’s educational system). 18 years old, skipped a grade and is in university. Also famous in America for writing thesis papers, part of which is covered in the news. Tsundere. Thanks to skipping a grade in America as a girl, she was envied by people around her, and ended up building a strong personality. Doesn’t want to show weakness to others, so she always has a stern expression. However, she is very curious, and when she builds interest she pokes into things. Occassionally has views that differ from regular opinion, like, “The experiment data is more important than the subject’s privacy.” Rintarou often tells her, “Hey, you’ve got a pretty good sense of being a Mad Scientist”, but she’s not one to agree to such things personally.
Rintarou has given her plenty of nicknames, in particular “Christina” (クリスティーナ) and “Assistant” (助手).
Months back, I pre-ordered this 1/8 Scale Makise Kurisu figure by Good Smile Company, and it’s only around last week when it finally arrived here.
The box’s tall as shit. I like the “laboratory member 004″ label on the box, make it looks very.. Steins;Gate-ish.
The figures comes with two stands. The “staircase” stand, and the “normal” stand (not sure if there are any special ways to call them so I’ll just call them my own way). The normal white stand has a Steins;Gate logo and Steins;Gate-y typography all over it. I ultimately prefer the staircase stand though even if it occupies more space.
It also comes with Kurisu’s phone and ummm.. another one of those… Metal Oppa. Sadly, both of these accessories lack details though.
The figure is beautiful. Makise Kurisu has a very slim and glamorous body, and the figure showcased all those sexy features. The best part I like about this figure is the hairs, the figure’s main highlight is that it is depicted as being blown by the wind, and the hair is accordingly detailed and accurate.
The only thing that supports this figure though, is this one leg, and the one peg on the stand. Since the figure isn’t particularly light either, sometimes, it’s dangerously wobbly.
Overall, this is a wonderful figure, and is a great addition to my collection, albeit, a bit pricy. I’m a Steins;Gate fan so for me, it’s well worth the money and space though ;p
