Taiga Kagami Has FallenTaiga Kagami Has Fallen

makoharusmakoharus2 år sedanAsk MFC
To be completely honest, I’ve written the draft for this article several weeks ago when the incident first happened. However, due to real life issues and work blahblahblah etc, I never got around to finishing this article and well, I’m still busy af but I just couldn’t stand the sight of my poor Kagami lying on one side of his body anymore. He’s been lying that way for weeks UGH </3

Now, onto the actual article!

As the title suggests, the great Taiga Kagami has fallen. From where? From the long-ass pole stuck up his left butt cheek is where.

I'd only joined the KNB fandom last year, and when I finished the series, to the utter joy (and despair to my wallet) of a crazed fandom figure collector, I discovered the Kuroko no Basuke Megahouse 1/8 scale series!!! So I set off saving up money for my beloved husbando - that is, Kuroko. Next, of course, came Kagami (which by the way, because of an inside joke between me and my sister, we pronounce his name as Kyeh-ge-mee, which totally does not have anything to do with his terrible American accent).

Here you can still see how he's supposed to be, upright and about 5m in the air but in 1/8 scale xD

And so, both my beloved husbandos sat on the shelf for a while, or rather, Kuroko balanced himself on one foot while Kagami was suspended precariously in the air by his left foot, till one fateful day.

In the dead of the night, I heard a inevitable tumbling crash of PVC - THUD. It had to be Kagami, IT HAD TO BE HIM, my brain was screaming.

After all, these two boys are my only two scale figures that can make that weight in the thud. But I was tired. And I remembered the darn proxy fees so I thought Megahouse had better NOT disappoint me then...so I went drifted back to sleep. Come morning, first thing I do is to check on the vitality of my babies, as per routine, and then there he was.

GYAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

The shelf looks so empty without Kagami ๐·°(৹˃̵﹏˂̵৹)°·๐

Even as I'm typing now, I recall the pure terror that shook me to the very core as last night's faded memory slapped me awake in the face. A single tear rolled down my cheek as I carefully sat Kagami's ass upright.
I flipped him 360° and finally found the culprit - his entire left foot was dislocated ( ꒪Д꒪)ノ

So this is how the bottom of his foot looks like right now, and has been for a few weeks now. (zoomed in so that you guys can see better)

You probably can't make out much just from the frontal photos, so I went as up close as I could so that you guys can sorta make out that red line between the seam of his foot and shoe. That red line is probably where the glue was applied, and was then brutally ripped off by gravity 。゚( ゚இ‸இ゚)゚。

I've even filmed a little video of how the dislocated foot looks like, the gap isn't obvious upon first glance but once I tug on it slightly, it looks like the entire foot will decapitate itself.

You can watch the video here!

I can't even take decent photos of him now like I planned to, and if I wanted to, my hand would be supporting him like this all the time. I'm so emo about my poor son I don't know what to do.

Would contacting Megahouse about this make any difference? To be honest, I have no idea what caused the fall in the first place. When Kagami arrived, he was completely brand new. I got him off of a trusted seller on YAJ, and I paid good money for him too. I haven't attempted to glue the foot back or anything yet, because I'm afraid his entire foot will just rip right off as I'm not the most hands-on person around. Any advice, friends? 。:゚(;´∩`;)゚:。

I've been actually messing with mine. It seems like gravity and the fact the shoes on Kagami (all the Kuroko figures) are squishy, he's beginning to lean forward. I looked at older photos of the figure and I feel he's slightly shrinking.

omg i didn't notice that!! just went to check and haha, its just the lighting that cast a shadow on the top part of the rod. Scared me for a moment LOL, had me thinking mine was a bootleg or something thank God. Anyways that's just my irrational thinking, I made damn sure my Kagami is not a bootleg haha xD

EternalTune (2 år sedan) #6301740Maybe I missed something, but why is the metal rod's tip black? I actually just pulled my Kagami out, removed him from the peg....completely silver.

I know right, what the hell. In the first place, the figure would get all wobbly if something moves against the base slightly, and I just did not feel safe watching Kagami from down here. That happened to me too! When Kagami first fell, I tried forcing his foot in all the way to make him upright, but when I released him, the entire figure just came crashing down, and probably worsened the tear ugh.

I was worried about this kind of thing with Kagami. I was glad that the rods were metal, but it's a lot of weight to put on the foot. I'm always cautious when I dust him because I had difficulty putting him back on his base one time. I put his foot in the rod and he fell sideways because I didn't push it in deeply enough. D;

I'm extremely paranoid and worried for all owners of Megahouse's KNB scales now, oh Lord I pray that it won't happen to any one of you...if only prayers would make Kagami's foot miraculously stick itself back.

Fullmetalpiggy (2 år sedan) #6279194I'm so sorry to see this happened to your Kagami. ;-; (Like you, I would be emo all days too!) I have the 1/8 Kise which is also supported by one of those pegs in his foot.. Hopefully this won't happen to him!

Me too, mate, me too. It's quite the juxtaposition lmao, if only it didn't happen to my poor Kagami.

Ahominecchi (2 år sedan) #6279137I just can't get over how ridiculous he looks lying on the ground with his aggressive warrior-face still on... //sorry Kagami bae </3

You're welcome..I guess ^^|| Well hello fellow SG collector! I know how you feel, his height is so..dangerous?! Ahh you have the whole knb collection? I'm very envious! Yeah I think there definitely is a risk of him getting loose over time, or God forbid, even lean.

darkrose (2 år sedan) #6278762Thanks for sharing this. This is really scaring me. Because of the height, I display Kagami at the back of other KnB boys. If he falls... arrgh.. don't want to imagine it..
I guess I need to temporarily keep KnB back to their boxes and rotate with other series for display
