W-What in the world?! (((゚Д゚)))

There have always been things like a ping-pong table and darts in the GSC offices… but this is the first time I’ve seen a wrestling ring! It does look a tad too small to be used by people though… ^^;

From New Japan pro-Wrestling:
Nendoroid Petite: New Japan Pro-Wrestling Set!

A set of three Nendoroid Petite figures of three New Japan pro-Wrestlers – Hiroshi Tanahashi, Satoshi Kojima and Hiroyoshi Tenzan! The set also includes a Nendoroid Petite-sized wresting ring!

What’s happened to GSC?! Σ(゚Д゚;)

The ‘Real Person Series’ (or so I’ve decided to call it) previously included Joy-san, Kamui-san and Linkin Park… but now we have a new entry to the series… and they’re pro-wrestlers!

This project came to life when Bushiroad’s president Kidani asked Aki to make figures out of the New Japan members! Aki made sure the request was met as soon as possible! :P

Just to let everyone know… I know nothing about pro-wrestling!

I’m sorry, but please bear with me if I do or say something strange about your favorite member!! I’ll try to learn as I go along!! ^^;

First up, Hiroshi Tanahashi!

Let me start off my asking Google what the real Tanahashi-san looks like….

Ooh! He’s really good-looking!! (*゚∀゚)=3

His Nendoroid Petite version definitely adds a little cuteness, but all of his characteristics are visible on it too – the streaked hair looks just like his photo!! Plus even in Nendoroid Petite size you can see he has the right build to be a pro-wrestler!
004
Next up, Satoshi Kojima!

Kojima-san has a rather mischievous appearance to me! If you look close you can even see the ‘COZY’ letters on the plaster over his nose! I also love his soft-looking cheeks!!
005
And finally, Hiroyoshi Tenzan!

Tenzan-san looks really strong… I think it must be the ‘Tenzan Mask’ he is wearing that makes him look so formidable – and just look at the detail on the mask!! The mask can also be removed, as you’ll see shortly!
006
A championship belt is included, and the Tenzan Mask can be removed!

Tanahashi-san has the golden championship belt around his waist here, but you can attach it to any of the three of them!

Tenzan’s mask can also be removed to expose his real face! The gradient in his hair is really impressive, particularly for a Nendoroid Petite!
007
Half a wresting ring is included!

I’m sure a lot of people will be wondering why it comes as half a ring only… but there are reasons for this! Displaying them like this lets the figures stand out more and takes up much less space! (`・ω・´)

In other words, the half-size ring makes a really nice pedestal to display all three of the Nendoroids on together!
008
You can also create a full ring!

Placing two halves together creates one complete wrestling ring! It takes up a lot more space, but definitely creates a much more authentic display!

I’m sure many people might be wondering how you can put two halves together without messing up the sponsor logo in the middle… but don’t worry!

The reverse side of the center mat has the alternate side of the logo!
010The ring changed to a GSC Version!

There are actually going to be two different versions of this product – this one will is the Karuwaza Online Limited Version, which features an alternate ring and pants for each of the characters! ヽ(゜∀゜)ノ

Plus this version also comes with a GSC Belt as a bonus extra! The GSC belt definitely adds a little extra cuteness compared to the championship belt! :P
009
The full wrestling ring!

While the Bushiroad ring is blue, the GSC ring is orange! The ring almost seems like self advertising now… :P

I don’t think we’ll be seeing a pro-wrestling ring with many other products in the near future, so it’s definitely quite a unique extra!
