Genos XTRA by TsumeGenos XTRA by Tsume

One Punch Man isn’t just known for its lack of scale figures. And our dear apprentice didn’t had one.
Personally, I LOVE Genos. It’s my favourite character from OPM (One Punch Man) with Saitama.
He has a lot of value. It’s a very thoughtful, loyal and courageous cyborg. He will do anything to be strong like Saitama, which here, is Genos’s model and he consider him as his master.
Today, we are going to review a figure of this latter. This one comes from the battle of Saitama vs Genos, when the cyborg is about to shoot a firestorm to Saitama.
“Finally”, if I can say. It’s about time that a figure of Genos, worthy of that name, had to come out in scale.
It is a figure of a 1/10 scale of the Xtra range made by Tsume. The past year, Tsume already had made an 1/10 scale figure from OPM. It was Saitama, but i’ll talk about it later.
Its price is 76,12 USD. It is still really affordable for a figure of that height. Moreover, a first edition came out in July 2017 at the Anime Exposition.
I point out in advance that i’m gonna compare this Genos to the Xtra of Saitama. Basically, i don’t like to compare, but i think this may be useful on some points.
For the 1/10 scale, i’m satisfied. Truly, the 1/10 scale figures are really small, but that aside, i really like that scale. I find these really well-made, oftenly full of details. And normally, for a small scale, the details are present enough to fill the size !
(I’d like to say in advance that my english isn’t perfect at all and can have some errors !)
Now, let’s go and see that little guy !

~Packaging~


For the box, its aspect is just simple. It is the same as Saitama’s, the only thing that changes of course is the image of the character and the color. On the surface, we observe the cyborg and the figure, even if we can not see it properly. At the back, we can see a small presentation of Genos, and the logo of the hero association on the sides.
This box is cool, but not exceptional. Inside it, we will find the figure of Genos and its base.

Let’s go see the beast :)

It is when Genos is about to end it with Saitama that he transform his arms in an incredible war arsenal. And here, Tsume hasn’t made any errors into making the representation of this image. Here we have a really alluring, dynamic Genos, loyal to himself. But, note that he does have some default.

His hairs are appropriate, with a small gradation on the top. The head is nicely sculpted, but something about his eyes and mouth is bothering me. In comparison with Saitama, i them them good, but they doesn’t stand out much. It feels like he is staring at nothing, and his mouth seems to be strange to me. About his face, we could say it is thin, maybe because of the collar of his sweater that goes really high (Now, Genos isn’t known for having a big head too so..). But, overall, it is still very satisfying. If we forget about the Saitama figure, his head is correct. He even possess earrings !

I really like the top of his body. We can see the parts of his torso through his sweater, thanks to the sculpture but also to the grey gradation that are welcomed ! Let’s not forget the small sculpture dots all around the sleeves and at the end of the sweater ! His trouser and shoes themselves are really loyal to the character. The folds are good, and we will even notice the pockets of the trouser. Moreover, we will also appreciate the grey shades on his black trouser and on the tip of the shoes.

One of the quality of the Xtras of One Punch Man are that they possess a base that represent a heavily decorative element. And what to say? Here, for the second time, Tsume made me happy when observing this zone. Here we have the earthy floor of the scene, with an interesting piece : the rocks ! Those are mostly present around the feet of Genos. This adds some vitality to the figure, because those rocks are revealing the impact made by Genos when he throws himself on the floor. As for me, we can also see a dark spreading, and some thin touch of light grey spread almost everywhere. The only thing I regret here is that his left foot is going out a little bit too far of the base, but nothing really important here.
As for Saitama’s base, this one reveal a completely random form, subdued of the action of the scene. Personally, I have a little preference for Saitama’s base, but this one is perfectly made too. The base also contains the signature of the Xtra series by Tsume.

Let’s get now to the key part of this piece : His arms ! They are simply monstrous ! The details here are very impressive. There is no defaults on the metallic parts, as well in term of the colors as the sculpture. the rods that emerge from his forearms are my favorites parts of the arms.

And the PVC parts that are transparent matchs perfectly. Yet, i’m not really a fan of type of material. But here, I find it really catchy with the figure. The yellow painting matchs perfectly to the light effect, and the light grey gradation on dark grey are perfect. I love it.

So, it is true that the image from the anime possess bigger details. However, here we have a figure, moreover, an 1/10. And for 70$, this result is more than reasonable. The small cannons, the rods, his epaulets… Well, the biggest is present.
The only we have is his fingers that are not well-sculpted, but let’s not ask for perfection now ! They still mark their presence !

The pose itself is really dynamic and drags us into the violence of his attack. It is loyal to the scene, so i have to say more about it.


https://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2018/29/7/1532253180-capture.png


I’d like to review the figure in its globality. I want to point out 2 details here.
Firstly, it is not easy to see his whole head correctly because of some reasons. From the front, his arms are hiding a bit the bottom of his face. To the right and left, His arms are also hiding a part of the head. And seen from the top, the front isn’t visible anymore. Instead, under his arms, we can see it clearly.
Secondly, something hit me when I put it in my window (second row starting from the top). I found that the top of the character is leaning forward, especially the head. So i’m not gonna talk about it because it is not really unsettling. And I don’t really know what to say for that detail, knowing that it may be normally done from the maker. It looks like he is really looking down. This time, it is one of the factor that disturbs by observing the face clearly. The persons that possess this figure will understand me well.
(I’m not posting any pictures because I don’t know what angle to take to show those details. But if you want to see what it is like, ask me in private, I’ll find a solution to show you the default.)
Attention: If you are perplexed about buying Genos, don’t hesitate ! Those details are not making it a bad figure ! Yes i repeat myself, but I insist xp !

To conclude, this figure of Genos of the Xtra serie at an 1/10 scale is a real masterpiece. We finally have here a scale of Genos. And even if I have a preference for the Saitama Xtra, this figure, despite it’s little defaults, is widely a success. The sculpture is really well done, and the painting is perfect ! Those gradations… especially on his arms, i’m in love with it ! Sometimes, i have the feeling that he is gonna shoot me when I stand right in front of him, I swear !

One more time, Tsume showed us an achievable ocean of details on a small figure. Saitama and his apprentice in scales, what can we ask more? Gosh they’re fitting so well together !
An another Xtra of OPM (Tatsumaki, Sonic…?) will be welcomed !

Opinion on Tsume-Art
Even if I only have two Xtra from Tsume, I’m a real fan of their work. Firstly, I really lile their Xtra range. This one allows us to make them fit with the other ⅛ or 1/7 figures, and oftenly for a good price. Next, they make grand figures, especially for the HQS. Moreover, I really like the fact that Tsume is getting licences a small amount of deritatives (including the figures). For exemple : Nanatsu No Taizai and My Hero Academia (that are to come) or still here with One Punch Man.


Saitama
I prefer the scale of Saitama than the Genos’s one for multiple reasons :
Like I said before, I really like the base of Genos. Saitama’s one is not the best, but i find it sweet. It explodes everything, and the details are insane. And his face is a perfect representation of the character. I find less defaults to Saitama, and this one imposes it with its cape.
(But careful : Our Genos is still exceptional ! I’m only comparing my humble opinion !)



Thanks for reading !

NemsEngelAceSasu (6 månader sedan) #30901713I agree with his face. It's a bit of a shame that you can't see it good unless you display him on a low level.
I've got mine too this week. And debated for it quite a while. I don't like xtra Saitama, so I was afraid he wouldn't fit too good, size wise, with the DXF Saitama. But I changed my display recently and Saitama looked so lonely and really mocked me to get him Genos. Luckily they look lovely together. And while there's some things about this figure which are not perfect, it's still good enough to get it. He's the only Genos besides the Nendo which is affordable after all.
Thumps up for your pictures. He's a pain to photograph. XD
Did I understood that correctly?
Tsume did get the license for Nanatsu and MHA figures?


Lol yes he is hard to shoot ! Honestly, his face is visible, but in fact, from the front, there is always
this discomfort. Otherwise yes, it is still a really good price and that's the only affordable with the
nendoroid !

And yes, Tsume had announced the MHA, TkG and Nanatsu on their twitter. The first products should be revealed
soon I think !



CaptainZ (6 månader sedan) #30901804Great review

Thanks !


Reianna_Trancy (6 månader sedan) #30901885I was waiting for a review on these two! Great job! BTW, do you have a picture of how they measure up to 1/8 and 1/7 scales?

Thanks ! Okay ! I add a picture in the blog for that!
