I’ve never been a big fan of Rin. Or Ren for that matter. They seem like really lame sidekick characters to a strong main character. Not to mention with there being two of them, it doesn’t add anything. Less is more sometimes.
So imagine my surprise when I was taken by this Nuclear Fusion Rin. I quite enjoy seeing paradoxical re-imaginings of certain characters, from shocking gender-bender to a completely different style. I think Nuclear Fusion Rin takes it to a level that not even Love Is War Miku can match. While Love Is War does re-imagine Miku to a different level as well, Rin’s is a complete 180. The only thing that Rin keeps intact is her signature hair.
Overall, Nuclear Fusion Rin has become one of my favorite vocaloid figures at this time. More so than BRS. World Is Mine comes pretty darn close though.
So here’s my Photoshop. Took an hour to do. It’s mostly grabbing random but somewhat related elements to compose this sort of surreal environment. I’ve sort of stopped doing realistic photoshops nowadays because it brings a form of monotony with realism. Making these surreal settings is so much more fun.
I absolutely love the detail on this figure. I was hesitant at first to preorder her, and was even going to cancel her at one point, but I held on out of curiosity.
When she finally arrived, I noticed how small she actually is. She’s supposed to be 1:8 scale, but she’s pretty small for that size, just like VN02 Miku. So you’re seeing quite a bit of detail packed in a small frame here.
The guitar looks pretty wicked. Interestingly, it looks a lot like something you’d see in Bayonetta. Like one of the angel’s weapons or halo.
One thing I don’t like is how she kinda looks cross-eyed a bit depending on the angle you see her at.
This was the original image used for the photoshop image. One thing that I didn’t realize was I forgot to put the wire from Rin’s headphones in. I didn’t even realize that there was supposed to be a wire until after I looked up a review on her. I decided that I didn’t like the way most people and stock photos were doing it. So I decided to wrap the wire around her.
I think it looks better. Don’t you?
Overall, great figure, and I love how different lighting affects her appearance so drastically. If you haven’t bought yours yet, I suggest you do. e2046 (where I got mine) is having a sale on her.“
