I'm stuck home this afternoon and trying to entertain myself. As I have a number of Kaiyodo figures on my desk aside my computer, and the one closest to me is the figure I often think earns the award for being the most authentic representation of a subject the company has produced, it occurred to me that it might be fun to pose a series of questions re: the company's figures to members here, starting with:
Which Kaiyodo figures do you think feature the most authentic sculpting--that is to say, is the most realistic, can be photographed and mistaken for the real animal, etc.
The one I have in mind is very close to size appropriate, has no visible seams, and is extraordinarily accurate in its detail--some things to consider when deciding about this answer.
Okay, no photo I'm finding does it justice, so I'll just note it's the Japanese pond turtle hatchling.
If there's interest, later I'll ask more questions--about which are favorites, which you consider the most beautiful, which best captures motions, what you'd like to see produced, which are the mostly cleverly rendered, etc.
