Miyazawa Model Exhibition!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I recently found a nearby convenience store selling canned Kombucha tea and couldn’t be happier! I never thought it would be so easy to get my hands on the lovely tea!

Anyway, today I headed through to Asakusa in order to attend the Miyazawa Model Exhibition! There were many goodies on display, such as the debut of this prototype!

Nendoroid Aegis: P3 Edition!

What is the Miyazawa Model Exhibition?

The Miyazawa model exhibition is a special event for distributors and companies involved in the industry to come together and discuss possible business opportunities and introduce their newest works! (`・ω・´)

An overall view from the GSC display area!

The Kaname Madoka ~The Beginning Story / The Everlasting~ posters made the GSC area easy to find! They really stand out!

You can see this is a business event as everyone is wearing suits! For the most part GSC staff are normally always in casual clothes, but for business events like this everyone dressed up in (somewhat) formal outfits! The person at the very front of the picture is none other than Kyojin from the planning team! The planner behind the Attack on Titan Nendoroids and much more!

Let’s take a closer look at what’s on display!


This display area includes GSC, Max Factory, Phat!, FREEing and Penguin Parade’s newest products! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Let’s take a closer look starting from the right side!

– Lamborghini Countach LP400 (Red) –


– Lamborghini Countach LP400 (Yellow) –


These Lamborghini’s are sculpted down to the absolute smallest of details…! You can find out more over on the GSR Hobby Division Facebook page!

Moving on we have the Nendoroid & Scale Corner!

The recently announced, Nendoroid Hunter: Female – Kirin Edition and Nendoroid Hunter: Female – Lagombi Edition! These two look great displayed together!! ♥

Now let’s take a look at some Nendoroid debuts!

– Nendoroid Suruga Kanbaru –


The third Nendoroid to join the ‘Monogatari’ series! Her spats look great! ★

– Nendoroid Aegis: P3 Edition –


A fully posable Aegis! Think of all the fun poses to put her in… I can’t wait to get my hands on her!

– Nendoroid Shizue (Isabelle): Winter Ver. –


Shizue is back again, this time with a new outfit! I’m looking forward to her expressions! ♥

– Nendoroid Saber Bride –


In the back you can also see a glimpse of the Red Saber!!
She’ll be on sale soon!!

Both Saber and Shizue only joined the exhibition a little late, but luckily they were there when I arrived! I really look forward to seeing all the optional parts and expressions for all four of these Nendos! As soon as I get the chance I’ll be taking a closer look at them on the blog! (*´▽`*)

Speaking of Nendoroids I’m looking forward to…

– Nendoroid Levi –


I want to see him in that pose!! Hurry up and let me play with him!! ヾ(。`Д´。)ノ

– Frau Kojiro –


She’s holding onto Gunvarrel in a very interesting pose… just look at those amazing legs… and socks!! ♥

All the items above are still in the sculpting stages and are likely to change… Frau and Levi of course still need color too… I can’t wait to see them painted!!

Let’s move onto Max Factory’s products! ♪

COMBAT ARMORS MAX 01:
1/72nd Scale Combat Armor Dougram
and others!


Dougram is scheduled to be on sale from next month already! Even put together with no customization they look great… but if you really put some effort in you can add some damaged paintwork or customizations like on the middle Dougram! I look forward to trying myself! ☆

– figma Indiana Jones –


The famous archaeologist and adventurer! He looks ready for an adventure! ♡

– figma Chihaya Kisaragi –

Her singing expression is lovely! You can still place your orders for this idol until the 20th November at 21:00JST!: http://goodsmile.ecq.sc/maxfigjp00208.html

A recently released idol was also on display!

– figma Hatsune Miku 2.0 –


The first figma with the new joints allowing for even more poses than before! Not to mention all the extra parts such as angel wings!

Onto the new announcements…. from Berserk we have:

– figma Casca –


Apparently another expression part will be included with Casca… I’m sure it’ll make her look even more valiant!! figma Casca is scheduled to be announced soon! (In the background we also have Crystal Boy!)

I also grabbed a picture of this in-development figma! ☆
figma Guyver!


The details are magnificent… I look forward to seeing the painted version but even as an uncolored prototype he looks amazing!

Finally we have some new scale figures!
– Yozora Mikazuki: Catgirl Ver. –
– Sena Kashiwazaki : Catgirl Ver. – (Provisional Names!)


These two are not set, but are specially designed to be displayed together! They’re also designed to be displayed with the previously released Kobato Hasegawa and Maria Takayama to complete to joint four figure set! (`・ω・´)

By the way… in the back you can see a glimpse of the figma Plus set! A school setting for your figmas!

The view from above is quite… impressive…! (゚A゚;)

These are also scheduled for announcement soon, so keep your eyes on the GSC site! Next up we have Phat! Company’s goodies! ☆

The one that catches my attention most is definitely this one! (*´▽`*)


Yakumo-san’s illustration is so cute I think she has sunk my heart into the depths of the seas!! I’m waiting for updates, Phat-san!

FREEing had a number of products on display that were not ready for photos, so I had to hold off from their section for now…(´;ω;`)

Penguin Parade had this recently announced figure on display:
Sword Art Online Fairy Dance Arc: Leafa

I love it when figures bring out the atmosphere of the surroundings with a fancy base! It really adds so much to the figure!!(╹◡╹)♪
