I know everyone has been waiting for this one!! ♡
Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Today there is no time for stories, I need to get straight into the review!
Nendoroid Sakura Kinomoto! ♪
|From the anime masterpiece ‘Cardcaptor Sakura’ comes a Nendoroid of the main character, Sakura Kinomoto! She comes with three expressions including a gentle smile, a more serious expression to pose her sealing cards as well as the adorable face she made whenever she saw something she liked! She also comes with her Sealing Wand and a Clow Card to bring out the story of the series!
Alternate lower body parts are also included together with a special version of her wand allowing you to display her using the ‘Fly’ spell, and Keroberos (Kero-chan) is also included to display by her side! Sakura has jumped back from the past as a Nendoroid, ready to be loved by all her fans once again! ♪
She’s finally here!! Nendoroid No.400! ♪
Dressed up in her most well-known pink and white outfit!
The giant ribbon has been faithfully kept in Nendoroid form! (｀・ω・´)
Her frilly, layered skirt and all the smaller ribbons scattered around her outfit have also been beautifully sculpted!
She also comes with her Sealing Wand… and even a Nendoroid-sized version of Kero-chan (Keroberos) to display beside her!
The shape of his stomach is somehow so adorable!! (*´Д`）
How could anyone not fall in love with Kero-chan’s cute, fluffy appearance! ♡
His cute little wings are also faithfully sculpted, down to the little twist at the center! ♪ Not to mention that his neck and tail are articulated allowing you to alter his pose to match however you choose to pose your Sakura-chan!
Now that I think about it… I actually still have a talking Kero-chan plushie at home… ( -ﾉｪ-)
As I’m sure everyone has noticed, she also comes with a Clow Card to hold… but look at how detailed the design on the reverse side is! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
It’s a bit hard to tell from my photo… but I’m sure many of you already know which card it is! ε=(｡・д・｡)
She even comes with an alternate lower body part and wand to display her in a flying pose to match the card!! (｀・ω・´)
I’ve always wanted to pose Sakura like this!! (´；ω；｀)
I just had to include the option for the Nendoroid!
Even now the episode where she flies with wings on her back sticks in my mind… and seen ‘The Fly’ Clow Card was also included… these parts simply had to be included too! ( -ﾉｪ-)
The flying parts give the Nendoroid an amazing presence too!
The alternate lower body also allows for other poses such as sitting with bent legs! Speaking of Clow Cards… she can also be displayed in this very special pose!
\ RELEASE!! /
Sakura-chan is well known for her lovely smile, but she has a more serious side as well! ♡
The sealing scene was another scene I really wanted to see in Nendoroid size! There are so many wonderful possibilities with Sakura-chan!! The tip of the Sealing Wand comes in an replaceable form with the Clow Card on the end to recreate this pose! (｀・ω・´)ゞ
This pose keeps her cute side but also has such an epic feeling to it! I love it!! Not to mention that if you look at her feet… you’ll notice the magic circle from the series is also included!
We really strived to get the circle looking just like it did in the series! There is a hole in the circle allowing it to be attached to the center of her Nendoroid stand with ease!
Combining the serious expression with the flying parts also makes for a more combat-orientated pose! She looks ready for anything! We got a load of help from Kodansha with regard to getting Sakura-chan as perfect as possible – from various checks to providing us with original designs from the series – they were a great help in helping us perfect Nendoroid Sakura-chan!
A big thanks to them for all the support!!
There is still a lot more that I’d like to point out to everyone with regard to the smaller sculpting details and more… but I think I’ll wait for her release to really get into the details! (｀・ω・´)
Keep the timeless heroine my your side to love forevermore! ♡
