Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Yesterday I’m almost certain I smelt some sweet olive in the air! I absolutely love that sweet fragrance!!
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
|From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the 9th Kagerou-class Destroyer, Amatsukaze – ready to set sail! The Rensouhou-kun attached to her hips is articulated for all sorts of poses, and even comes with shooting effect parts!
Torpedo effect parts for Amatsukaze herself are also included to ensure that the enemy can not escape – water column parts are also included to show the point of impact! Just like Nendoroid Shimakaze before her, she also comes with parts to recreate her ‘Half-Damage’ pose – the bow and first cannon have been hit, but that won’t be enough to sink Amatsukaze!
Apologies for the long wait!! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
I know she has been on display at a number of events and many Admirals have been waiting for her very patiently! The 9th Kagerou-class Destroyer Amatsukaze is finally coming to join the Nendoroid fleet!
The adorable little hat the doubles up as a funnel, her long pale hair and beautiful outfit… you can even see her garterbelt if you look close! Everything that makes Amatsukaze amazing has been captured in her Nendoroid for fans to be charmed by all over again!
His confident, robotic looking face has a comical side to it that makes him so very cute!! The head is fitted with a joint allowing you to match his pose with Amatsukaze’s pose!!
Back onto Amatsukaze… let’s take a look from the back! ♪
Her 4-turret torpedo launcher has been faithfully included! The rather unique parting of her hair has also been faithfully kept, and actually makes attaching and removing the stand nice and easy! ♪
But perhaps one of her most unique features…
Her semi-transparent outfit! <○><○>!!
It’s ever so slight, but you can definitely see through!
If you look close you can definitely make out the two lines of the garterbelt going up her stomach! (； ・`д・´)
The original plan for the Nendoroid didn’t actually include the semi-transparent outfit, but while working on it the head planner Kyojin decided that it was definitely worth preserving on the Nendoroid… and thus the change was made!
Let’s try a slightly lower angle…
I can hear her cute voice in my head when I look at this expression!!
Plus just look at that adorable moe fang!! ♥︎
Some of you may recognise this expression already… you’ll see it’s main use a little later on! (｀・ω・´)
But before that, the KanColle Nendoroid are always well known for their effect parts… Amatsukaze also comes with a couple to enjoy!
First up we have…
Rensouhou-kun Firing Parts! ☆
These are inserted into Rensouhou-kun’s turrets to display him firing at the enemy! Together with Amatsukaze’s pointing expression it’s as if she is ordering him to fire in a certain direction! (･ω･)b
The point that Rensouhou-kun attaches to Amatsukaze’s hip is also articulated, so you can move him in all sorts of different directions!
The second part is a…
Pillar of Water!☆
Finally, we also have…
Torpedo Effect Parts!☆
The standard expression is mainly a tsundere embarrassed expression as with the first few photos of the blog… but used with effect parts it actually gives her a bit of a serious look to her attack – as if she’s really concentrating! φ(．． )
There is still one last optional part remaining!
Included to recreate a very popular pose!! ヾ(｀・ω・´)ノ
But I’m not going down yet!”
She comes with a completely alternate Half-Damage Body!
Alternate bent leg parts with ripped knee-highs are also included!!
Even with her outfit torn apart the detail on what remains is amazing! Look at this tiny little ribbon on her left side!!
Plus Rensouhou-kun also comes with a Half-Damage version! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
He looked so confident a little while ago, but now he looks to be rather unsure of himself!! So cute!!
Last but not least, she also comes with a third expression!
Aww!! What a little angel!! (´□｀｡)
Amatsukaze may be best known for her rather spiky personality, but when she puts on a smile she really is adorable!! ♪
W-What is that she’s holding in her hand?!
It’s not even mentioned in the release text, but she’s holding plans for a new turbine to give to Shimakaze!!
Ideal for duo poses just like this one!
These parts were also included by the head planner Kyojin… certainly something only an Admiral himself could think to include! ♪
I look forward to seeing what is include with Nendoroid I-401!
As soon as I know more about the upcoming KanColle Nendoroid I shall share!! ☆
All sorts of fun parts, a semi-transparent outfit and lovely expressions!♪
She’ll be up for preorder as of tomorrow, the 30th September!
As usual, orders from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a special box sleeve and special Nendoroid base as a bonus! The design for the sleeve isn’t ready yet, but I’ll be up on the product page once it is!
