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

  1. She does look wonderful however im simply disappointed at the base which in my opinion ruins the image of it.. She looks even better on pictures by mikatan with the plain transparent base, I like simple ^^

    Other than that I just love her pose and her face is georgous!

    • Yea not much I can do with that, I prefer the transparent base too, the box only comes with the aforementioned two bases. Transparent bases are mostly used by figma or nendoroids only….. if… I’m not wrong.

  2. Ahhhh! So gorgeous! If I were to ever get a figure for S;G, it would have to be on of Makise Kurisu, and this one is very tempting. Though, I am concerned about that wobbly base, since I don’t yet have a proper set-up for figurines. I guess I’ll have to wait for the day that I have a nice display case where I won’t have to worry so much. Thanks for sharing, Kai!

    • No love for da mad scientist? :D Speaking of which, I haven’t seen any of his figure..
      I was actually torn up between the one re-release for Kotokubiya and the one by GSC (this one). Ended up I chose the latter since the one made by Kotokubiya had a really weird face (those gears are sexy though). Actually, I don’t have a proper set up myself too, my current shelf where I put all my figures aren’t proper decorative shelfs either, I’m collecting them for now, and when I had gathered a respectable amount, then I’m going to invest in a decorative shelf :D

  3. Oh she has the same zodiac like me ^^

    She looks definetely like a well made figure, a rather cold expression but it goes well with the flow of her pose. The staircase base looks quite appealing with the “used” look. Somehow I really like the slim design of her box, how much was the shipping for her?

    • Damn that’s cool D:

      Cold expression but that’s how she naturally looks like. Actually, I like the sculpture of GSC’s face more rather then Kotokubiya. I guess that’s because the figure and Kurisu’s body is already slim and sexy as hell :D

      In my country’s currency, around $30.. That’s almost 2000 yen if I’m not wrong..

  4. Accessories and stands aside, GSC’s Kurisu looks great, they did an awesome job giving Lab Member 004 justice :D Check Kotobukiya’s, loved the base on that one.

    P.S. Would you mind a link exchange?
