Here's a full-scale Homura. I would absolutely love to have this as a 1/8:
That thing life size? That would be cool to get and put in the living room in front of the bay window with the front lights off and the back ones on creating that silhouette effect; it would scare the crap out out of people passing by.
I haven't seen the first two movies, but they are just a rehash of the television series. The third movie has yet to be released outside Japan, but given the high expectations, there really should be nothing to worry about it being "done well."
Not being a fan of magical girl shows, this is one of only 2 or 3 that I actually liked. I probably would have gone on to completely ignore it had it not been given Yuki Kajiura music, which really the only reason I gave it a shot.
