This "Excellent Model" lives up to its name! Super-popular idol singer Sheryl Nome from "Macross Frontier" gets a deluxe figure treatment here, captured mid-performance with a slight smile. Her hat is removable, as is the "uniform" portion of her outfit--to reveal the super-sexy suspenders/hot pants/bandeau bra outfit beneath! A pair of bare arms are included, as is a stand and a microphone with cord. The Galactic Fairy stands 21cm tall, and she's ready to appear live and in person in your collection today!

•All thumbnails are clickable, and will provide a bigger picture at res. of 800x600pixels.

I didn't manage to get the Banpresto figurine of Sheryl Nome and Ranka Lee, and well, it's good I waited further. Since there's this figurine that got released. And it can be displayed in 2 modes. Ultra CoOl.

Bought it as shown,

And here's the packaging pics.

Note the usual "BIGWEST" sticker on the box? Anyway, without further ado, let's rip it!

Slowly taking apart the figurine...

And the rest of the parts off the trays...

The parts do have a nice and snug fit. Of course, please use the usual care in slowly taking them apart. One thing is, parts of the clothing do have pegs similar like when assembling snapfast model kits/gundam model kits. So do take care when (dis)assembling this figurine.

Now, let's take a look at the base.

th_MFSN-11.jpg

It's totally transparent, and comes with Sheryl's signature on it. And the neat thing is that the signature is printed on the underside of the base, so no worries about accidentally rubbing it off on top.

Now, let's take a look at Sheryl's costume during her concert.

And her next change of costume...

I have collected some PVC figurines in the past(Gundam Seed Destiny's RAHDX, GITS:SAC, etc), and this is one extremely detailed figure. Even with the swappable parts, the details are indeed flawless. The essence of Sheryl Nome during her concert is very much captured in this figurine.

And before I end off, here's some more random pics with a certain background...

Thanks for reading. :wink:

Excellent! Sheryl Nome came in the post on Friday. I am quite pleased the quality of it and do recommend it if one is a PVC figure collector, though I do wonder if they will release an alternate red version? Might be a job for the customizers out there?

I with Sheryl out of the box, I also took the opportunity to take a pic of Minmay (CM's Corporation, released earlier this year).

It sits neatly next to my DYRL? VF-1S's

I look forward to the Megahouse Ranka Lee in November.

Got mine around noon today, took a few pictures of the box but my battery was going dead so I have to put off taking pics. I'll upload a nice big picture set once it gets late enough to shoot some stuff (extra late tonight or tomorrow). ^_^

I'll go over some finer points of the figure once I upload pics. First impressions are overall positive although there are a few little snags here and there.

Also as a heads up to anyone who hasn't gotten theirs yet, the part that makes up the whip is made from a very thin brittle piece of plastic. be VERY careful when handling it (i.e. when inserting it into the handle) because it can easily break.

These were spotted at the C3 Hobby Show....thanks to Cybergundam for the pics.

If they are doing this Sheryl, i hope they will do the "Hard On" Ranka. B))

As much as I dislike the 'over the top' posting from Sheryl, it is a nice sculpture, hair looks great too.

Ranka might looks a little skiny... hard to say without any paint job.

Thanks for the links.

OMG! The Sheryl's prototype has her hot pants so tight that I can see her cameltoe. :o

Then again, so was May Nakabayashi's (May'N) hot pants during her mini-concert promotion in Singapore last year. And yeah, she was wearing a black pair too. ^_^ So yeah, art is a reflection of real life after all. :lol:

is there a definite on the red version of that? If there is I'd rather wait.

Or a Sheryl-outfit variant for M. Bison. B))

I dunno if they'll ever make the "Bison" version, (or a Sheryl outfit for Bison - lol! - good one) but I used some Photoshop trickery and mocked this up for us.

oooh...very well done. Thanks for the effort. BTW, I have a special feeling this red version will be a hobby japan magazine mail-in exclusive order, just like a lot of 2P color Queen's Blade figures, and the green-hair color Monster Ranka Lee. <_<:angry:

Anyway, that means I can save money since I know alot of sellers like playasia will jack up prices to 2x or more for these items, and I never pay more than SRP anymore. ^_^

Don't Be Late Sheryl finally arrived from A-E (it took exactly one week).

I am very, very, VERY impressed with Megahouse's efforts on this one. The sculpt is everything I've expected in a Sheryl Nome figure. The cast off clothing is handled very well. But make sure that you are careful when separating the tabs (especially underneath her arm pits) because it takes a bit of coaxing to make sure they stay in place. Everything needs to be exactly in the correct place to ensure a tight fit. The paint applications are superb as I didn't notice any imperfections.

Nevertheless. I'd give this figure a 9.5 out of 10.

That new Sheryl 1/8 NA figure is a dream come true :)

It's the perfect embodyment of her passion, her showmanship and her playfulness.

So far, I've only just managed to acquire a 1/5 Yoko from Gurren Lagann... (pics when I get it!) ... But I hope that I manage to get this one and the 1/8 Ranka :)

In the end, Ranka just doesn't do as well in skimpy sexy poses (Monster Girl)... she's better off being a cute bubbly waitress or prancing around in her big boots and nice dress .... Sheryl on the other hand is perfect in these kind of get ups and poses :)

So basically, one's a 80A-78-80 lolita and one's a 92C-82-88 adult woman. :)

p.s. measurements are in centimeters.

p.p.s. sometimes, we get lucky and a Norma Jean (aka Marilyn Monroe) appears in our lifetime. But I read she uses bust-pads as well. ^ _ ^

ahh, i think i'm goig to have to stop, this sheryl (bullet porno time version) is fantasic, but it's sapping money for valks.

Thing is i am slowly paying off my 28cm Sheryl, and i regard that and the Megahouse Sheryl just released as the ultimate.

Hell how easy it will be to do the same poses and more lol *looks around the room* >';] don't need it.

I need my VF-11B's!!!!
