Cu-poche Misaka Mikoto by Kotobukiya

Have you guys watched Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S? I just finished watching the anime a couple of nights ago and I really enjoyed it. It makes me love Mikoto Misaka and her friends even more.

Today, we are taking a look at Cu-poche Misaka Mikoto by Kotobukiya. If you are a fan of BiriBiri and love the series, then she’s a great addition to your collection. I wish they will make Shirai Kuroko with pervy face too, I’m sure it’ll be fun to play and take pictures of the duo.

Thank you Kotobukiya for sponsoring this super cute Misaka. You can also find these photos on their Facebook page.


Misaka comes with 3 face expressions -shy face, normal, and winking face. An iron sand sword, teddy bear, electric effect and railgun effect are also included. There’s an extra hair accessory which has a flower design to change her regular hair pin.

There are different sets I made for Misaka’s photo shoot. The first one is a little girl bedroom and a battle scene mode. I enjoyed working on the battle diorama, since I based it from one of the scenes in the anime.

Overall, Kotobukiya never fail to amaze me with the articulation of their Cu-poche figure. I love how I can pose her without using the base and stand or any of my tricks to stand alone. It’d be awesome if she has an extra flowing hair for a dynamic pose.

With growing number of Cu-poche in my collection, I was able to use some of the face expression in this photo set. Some of them are from Tsukiko, Kirino and iDOLMASTER’s Yukiho and Haruka.

You can still get this adorable Cu-poche figure at Kotobukiya Store.

That’s all for today guys, I hope you enjoyed this set. I’ll see you on my next post! ^_^

    OMG MIKOTO!!! You probably already know I’m a huge Railgun fan. That last episode of Railgun S is soooooo good 😀

    Great job on these pictures! They capture both the school life part and the action part of the show. That last shot with the laser (?) is really cool.

      Thanks Tian! I used a red dot sight/laser for the last picture as part of the lighting experiment. Using Red dot sight plus smoke is challenging. It’s hard to get the right WB and lighting plus the effect part of Cu-poche is too heavy in Mikoto’s arms. -_-
      Glad you found it cool though. Thank you! (⌒▽⌒)☆

    A cute young lady, just needs her friend Kuroko to complete the fun ;D
    I really like the pictures with the hole in the wall with the fog effect it is a epic background.
    The melting concrete illusion looks great, a cool idea.

      Thanks buddy! I didn’t expect that it would look like a melting concrete at first. I’m just happy by adding a mix of red and blue light and long exposure give this cool effect in this shoot. ^_^

    You have so many awesome accessories to go with these figures. Aside from Saber there really haven’t been any Cu-Poche figures I’ve been interested in, so I’ve yet to have any in my collection. Lovely photos though. 😀

      Thank you very much. It’s always fun to make a tiny world for these figures. ❤
