I suppose the title of the blog has once again given away to answer to my cunning quiz…! Maru-sama is working very hard to make a super cute design!
|From the anime ‘Macross Frontier’ comes a Nendoroid of one of the heroines, Ranka Lee!
She comes with three expressions including a shouting expression, a singing expression and a winking expression to recreate her trademark ‘Kira’ pose. Optional parts include a microphone and various other exchangeable parts to help recreate one of her live performances. A special stage part is also also included which can be attached to her standard base to transform it into a stage for her to perform on!
(I’m trying to be one of the soldiers watching her…)
Following from the previously announced Nendoroid Sheryl comes a Nendoroid of the other heroine of the series – Ranka-chan!
Ever since I saw the unpainted prototype I’ve been patiently waiting for the day I could take a look at her painted version!! Look at that cute little belly button you can see under her fluttering top! ヽ(ﾟ∀ﾟ)ﾉ
This is how she looks from the back!
This is the ‘Seikan Hikou’ outfit seen in the second opening of the TV series as well as in the final episode! The mix of orange and yellow is so bright and colorful and suits Ranka’s cute personality perfectly! Her fluttering skirt and puffy sleeves are also faithfully preserved in Nendoroid size!
“Everyone embrace one another!
To the far end of of the Galaxy!”
“Suimen ga yuragu~♪”… I’m sure many of you already have the lyrics playing through your head now! The shouting expression and microphone create the lovely Ranka that appeared in the cockpit just before singing “Seikan Hikou”.
Using the pointing hand, bent leg and singing expression you can pose Ranka in the middle of one of her performances!
A similar pointing arm was also included with Sheryl, which means this will also make for a lovely paired-up pose together with her! You can also place other hand parts on the outstretched arm, allowing for all sorts of interesting poses!
“You don’t know her?! (( ；ﾟДﾟ))”
“The fill-in that grabbed the chance to become a star and hasn’t stopped since…”
“The Super-Dimensional Cinderella, Ranka-chan!!”
I hardly think I’m over-exaggerating when I say that these two pictures are the reason today’s blog exists!! The ‘Kira’ pose is way too cute, and the Nendoroid effect only makes it even more adorable!
Anyone who looks at this cute face will have their pupils change into hearts! They’ll fall for Ranka-chan without a doubt!! The ‘Kira’ hand parts even include star effect parts to complete the full effect! （*´∀｀*）
Stage parts are also included!
Just like Sheryl, Ranka comes with stage parts that look like the deck of one of the Macross ships! This connects onto the standard Nendoroid stand to create a little floating stage for Ranka to perform on!
I really wanted to display her together with Sheryl, but it seems many of Sheryl’s parts are off in China at the moment, so I was only able to get photos of her from the back. I look forward to displaying them together! (=゜ω゜)
