Exploring the Great Outdoors with GSC’s Canaan

I doubt anyone noticed, but I missed a couple weeks’ worth of posts while I moved from my apartment into a new house. I’m still very much in that “settling in” period and all of my figures are still packed, but I feel like I have enough time again to resume blogging regularly.

This week, I wanted to share the results of my first foray into outdoor figure photography.

Good Smile Company recently announced this figure featuring the character Canaan from the series of the same name.  The dynamic pose is something I’d expect to see more from Alter, but I expect that GSC will execute this rather well.  I normally find the use of pegs (see Canaan’s left leg) to support mid-air poses a big turn-off, but the lone peg I see here is minimal enough that I probably wouldn’t be bothered by it.  The detailed base helps to distract from the peg supporting Canaan, so I’m really hoping GSC doesn’t go with a plain base for the final product.
