After the ARTFX J series of Kotobukiya launched a variety of figures from “Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai“, they brought us the latest work of Grand Sorcerer: the Popp 1/8 Scale figure! The fighting posture full of the belief in victory is very good, let’s take a look!
Popp, the son of the owner of a weapon shop, had a weak personality and loved to cry in the early days. After experiencing many incidents with days, he gradually became a Grand Sorcerer trusted by everyone, and possessed a strong will to protect his companions. He was a very reliable and important fighting force in the team.
This Popp Figure uses the 1/8 scale, and it is also a non-articulated figure, its height reaches 35cm， approx. 13.78 inches.
As I mentioned before, it is beloned to the ARTFX J series of Kotobukiya.
The 1/8 scale figure is in the perfect posture to help describe the moment when he used one of his most special spells, known as Medroa spells. The base that he stands on seems like the part of the rocked surface that is a bit elevated to help him steady his posture.
The attack he used for his enemies is sculpted a bit far from his hands while he wore green-colored gloves to keep his hands protected. His entire outfit also is sculpted in green covering, which is the perfect portrayal of the original persona of Grand Sorcerer Popp. With his left foot on the stand, the right foot is in the air as he gives his all to finish off the enemy he is fighting.
With a little peek over the backside of the scale figure, you can see that except for the black-colored part under his neck and back, his entire outfit seems to be elegantly sculpted in green color. The dark green boots he wore are aligned with the color of the entire outfit he wears, as the black color of his hair has a yellow headband over his head.
The piece of cloth that he has on the front of his body seems like a vest with black and white linings over them, along with the golden-colored belt and the creative belt clasp. The belt is the only accessory that stands out from the entire outfit of Grand Sorcerer, as everything seems to be in a contrasting green color.
This head sculpt of Popp 1/8 scale figure is also a highlight.
The expressions on his face perfectly depict how he felt toward his enemies, as the frown on his forehead indicates anger. His clenched teeth also portray the anger of this brave hero.
The special effect part shows the huge magical effect produced by Popp’s Medroa spell. The surface of the special effect part also has this beautiful gradient effect, and the visual effect is very explosive.
What’s interesting is that the base of the 1/8 scale figure has a built-in oversized LED device. After lit up, the light in the base not only highlights Popp’s perfect figure, but also enhances the display effect of hte magic special effect.
While Kotobukiya also provided an interchangeable part for the 1/8 scale figure to increase the playability.
This special effect part can be removed from Popp’s left leg to show the Popp‘s posture without any effects.
At this time, when the LED light is lit on, you can simply appreciate Popp’s dynamic posture.
Let the 1/8 scale figure of Grand Sorcerer Popp be a part of your invaluable collection and see how it lights up the entire collection with the remarkable feature of LED lights installed in it.
