Hello again everyone! My name is Chan-shuu from GSC’s planning team , and I will once again be taking over the blog for Kahotan as she is currently away overseas for an event! I imagine she should have landed by now!
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Nendoroid Armin Arlert!
As with the other Nendoroids in the series he also comes with his Vertical Maneuvering Equipment, dual blades and effect parts to display him soaring through the air, which allow for amazing combat scenes. He also comes with an alternate head part with a bandage wrapped around his head and kneeling parts, allowing you to enjoy all sorts of different poses.
Finally Armin is here to join the previously released characters and Titan! Armin is a character popular with both boys and girls alike… but what kind of charm will the Nendoroid bring us? Let’s take a look! (;ﾟ∀ﾟ)=3
A look from the side while wielding his dual blades!
Just like Eren Yeagar and Mikasa Ackerman Armin comes with the Titan exterminating weapon of choice – the dual blades and Vertical Maneuvering Equipment! They are just as amazingly detailed as before!
A shouting face and ‘I pledge my heart’ pose!
Armin is very well known for this pose from episode 10 where he persuades the commanding officer of his resolve! The expression even keeps the large drops of sweat dripping down his face, capturing his determination and tension all at once!
Jumping about with the Vertical Maneuvering Equipment!
Definitely some parts that owners of the previous Nendoroid will be familiar with, but they are still just as amazing as ever! Armin may be more about brains that he is brawn, but he still looks gallant in combat scenes like this! His ‘standard’ expression has a fairly serious look to it, which suits combat scenes rather well!
He must be headed straight toward a Titan!!
“Uwaaaaaaa!!!! Σ（゜Д゜ ；）”
Displaying him together with the previously released Nendoroid Colossus Titan & Attack Playset allows for some interesting panic scenes as well!
Armin is in trouble now!!
Obviously the scale isn’t quite right seen the Nendoroids are the same size, but this is just one of the reasons Nendoroids are so much fun!
Will Armin manage to get out of this one alive?! (ﾟＡﾟ;)
Armin has managed to get out alive, but with a little injury – he comes with…
a blushing face, bandaged head part and kneeling parts!
T-This Armin!! He is just too adorable!! (;ﾟ∀ﾟ)=3
This is a scene from the 18th episode of the series! Armin resting after he was wounded in battle. He puts on a smile to avoid worrying his friends!
The same pose from the back!
The alternate head part is not just the front, but the back hair parts as well – fully recreating the bandaged up look! It also means he effectively comes with two complete heads!!
Shouting Face + Kneeling Parts!
The formal kneeling pose seems like the complete opposite of the screaming expression, making for some bizarre contrast! This was however the personal favorite combination of the figure’s planner, Kyojin!
“I pledge my heart”, together with Eren and Mikasa!
This is the pose I want to see the three childhood friends in!! （゜∀゜＊）!
Nendoroid Armin Arlert will be going up for preorder from tomorrow, the 1st July at 12:00JST!!
Be sure to check the Good Smile Company Website for details!
Anyway, that’s all from me for today!
I’m sure we shall meet again soon! (*^_^*)ﾉ
