Here’s a first look at the upcoming Golden Lover statue from the Fantasy Figure Gallery series produced by Yamato. The statue is the first figure in the FFG series that’s based on an original illustration by Julie Bell, the renowned artist in the sci-fi and fantasy genre. You can find Julie’s work on the cover of various novels, comic books, trading cards (Lilandra from Marvel X-Men), including some ad campaigns (with Vallejo) for companies such as Nike and Coca Cola.
At a glance, the face of the woman, the smooth skin, and the detailed fins of the serpent really jump at you. Compared to the original illustration, the figure has softer features yet still captures the rapture the woman feels. The fins are exquisitely detailed with all the serrations and are made of a translucent material. The effect of the fins comes off quite well and makes the entire figure appear to glow in the light. All in all, a very impressive figure from Yamato.
Thanks to Yamato for the sample used in this review.
