Being a huge fan of video games and anime, it should come as no surprise that a good chunk of my disposable income goes to adorning my living quarters with various collectables bearing the likeness of my favourite characters. If you follow me on social media, you may know that I have a particular fondness for Good Smile Company and today, I’ll be showing off some pictures of their recently released 1/7 scale figure of Cordelia from the hit Nintendo 3DS SRPG Fire Emblem Awakening:
Cordelia is quite a large figure, so for scale, here she is posed next to various figures of other Fire Emblem characters (from left to right): Lucina amiibo (Nintendo), Marth Nendoroid and Lucina figma (both Good Smile Company). As you can see, even the figma only just comes up to waist height.
Sculpted by Shining Wizard @ Sawatika (Max Factory) and painted by Hiroyuki Hirose (Decomas Lab), this figurine of Ylisse’s genius pegasus knight has a nice sturdy build with even small details like the wings in her hair being firmly in place. Being a separate item not attached to Cordelia, her lance can be a bit loose but while thin, doesn’t feel particularly fragile. Interestingly, the sculptor decided to exclude Cordelia’s chest plate from the main mould, with it instead being a separate item to hang from the pegasus wing. This is notable because in Fire Emblem Awakening, Cordelia admits to wearing the armour due to being self-conscious of her small bust; perhaps this is a statement from the sculptor?
Hiroyuki Hirose’s paint job is really well done; the rich and vibrant colours make it stand out wonderfully even amongst my crowded collection and the detail is superb, with even intricate patterns showing no signs of bleeding.
The figure comes in six parts and is really easy to assemble. Cordelia herself is a single piece, which fits into a two piece-layered base, with the pegasus wing being, her spear and chest place being individual items.
This is a wonderfully high quality figure that I am happy to have in my collection. With high quality however, comes a high price – the figure has an SPR of ¥16,800 (£122.64/$164.64 at time of writing) – however, it can be purchased from AmiAmi for ¥12,390 (£90.45/$121.42), excluding postage and potential customs charges.
