Obitsu to Exhibit New 1/3 Body (Obitsu 45)

Recommended Posts

According to one of the points on their most recent blog post, Obitsu will be showing off their prototype of a new 1/3 body(frame and outer vinyl) at Doll Show!! No pictures yet but Doll Show will be on the 4th, so not too long of a wait.

 

I’m really excited—Obitsu’s 1/3 line has loooong been overdue for a revamp and it looks like we’ll finally get it! I wonder which size it’ll be...?! I think 50cm would make the most sense since it’s the most widely produced but I’d really like new 55/60/65cms too! If the aesthetic is similar to the new 22/24/26cms then I WILL definitely shift some plans to include some of these new bodies.

Ooh yes, I would love to see new Obitsu 1/3 bodies! Hopefully some boys again someday, too.

Looking through twitter, it looks like Obitsu’s new body is.... an Obitsu 45! I didn’t expect this at all lol

Parabox already has an Obitsu-made "45cm" doll body already, so I’m sorta surprised that they’re making their own updated version, but why not I guess. The knees are much nicer now, but the thigh and hip area will take me some getting used to. The one piece torso is interesting but I wonder how much that’ll affect mobility. Obitsu’s flexible torso makes posing them pretty fun so I hope it won’t be too bad. The elbow joints look the same to me..

 

I think it looks nice overall, but if this size is the only new 1/3 doll Obitsu’s making then I’ll be a bit sad since I was looking forward to a taller doll body! xD I really hope for more to come.. ^^

Interesting!

Those knees are a big improvement and the hand sculpts look cool, plus it seems like a very androgynous body that could work for many characters. I have a parabox 48cm and the proportions are fun but the body itself doesn't feel too solid, it's nice to see obitsu re-engineering things again.

all of these new OBITSUs seem to follow the same overall design aesthetic,

which is really quite exceptional, IMO.

 

their new legs are great, the proportions are exceptionally pleasing, at least to me,

and the soft vinyl of the torso is so thin and compliant that the new 24, at least,

has no issues whatsoever with sitting down about as naturally as one could ever ask for.

 

all said, as a 1/6 Anime doll collector/customizer,

i can hardly wait to get hands on the upcoming 26cm. version of these new OBITSUs...

I’ve been waiting for Obitsu to say something about this new body on their blog or something but it’s been over a week and there’s still nothing. Idk, it’s really amusing how differently all of these doll companies handle PR, from Danny’s gratuitous Smartdoll social media spam, to Volk’s relatively predictably-timed new announcements & events, and Obitsu’s... what, twice yearly??? updates.

Maybe there'll be some updates at the Doll Show in Tokyo on the 24th of this month. Azone is apparently taking advantage of the 45cm body, as they'll be releasing a Chino from "Is the Order a Rabbit?" later this year or early next year, although they'll have some custom outer shell parts.

They really needed to do a new 60cm version. It has been over a decade .

I've never seen this before, I'm so excited for it now! ∑d(°∀°d) The 45cm is my favorite size of the 1/3 Obitsu, so I'm down for this. I might just buy it for my current boy, the sculpt looks amazing on the prototype! Can't wait for more news!
