Nendoroid Shoyo Hinata

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I will openly admit that I have absolutely no innate sense for ball games and sports. I was always hoping that my school sports days would be rained out… even now those days remain a wonderful memory to be!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at:

Nendoroid Shoyo Hinata! ♪

From the popular anime and manga series ‘Haikyuu!!’ comes a Nendoroid of Karasuno High School Volleyball Club’s ultimate decoy, Shoyo Hinata! He comes with three different expressions including a cheerful smiling face, a confident expression as well as a super excited face.

He comes with a variety of optional parts such as a volleyball and net parts allowing you to pose him just as he is about to spike the ball! He also comes with a special base made in the image of a volleyball court! Enjoy having Hinata run along the court in Nendoroid size!!

Oooooohhh!! ヽ(*´∀`*)ノ

Haikyuu’s Hinata is finally here to join the Nendoroids! ♪

I know that many of you have been waiting patiently ever since his unpainted prototype was announced! Karasuno High School Volleyball Club’s ultimate decoy has of course been sculpted wearing his volleyball jersey! He might be small, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a huge threat in a volleyball game! ♥︎

That smile is so bright and cheerful!!

Let’s see how he looks from the back! ♪

The design of the jersey even including the knee supporters… even his volleyball have all been shrunk down into Nendoroid size! His spiky orange hairstyle has also been preserved very faithfully!

Hinata can take all sorts of dynamic poses!

From running, to jumping, to spiking the ball!!

Let’s take a look at some of these poses! (`・ω・´)ノ

1) Running!

Displaying him with his arms outstretched together with the included bent leg gives an image of Hinata running along the court!

2) Jumping!

A Nendoroid joint is included in his hips, allowing you to easy take an amazing jumping pose like this! ♪

3) Focused!

Here we have Hinata’s second expression – his serious expression, perfect for concentrating on the game! The smiling face was more than enough for me, but this shows off a completely different side of Hinata’s personality that is just as important! It’s nice to have the option of a more serious Hinata while he is playing! (。・ω・)ノ゙

4) Spiking!

Special arm parts are included to pose him as if he has just spiked the ball, making this also a very easy pose to create! Perfect for someone like me who has trouble making cool poses! ♪

5) Score!!

An excited face just sparking with happiness!

Ah!! He is so cute! You’re too cute Hinata!!

This expression was the favorite of the figure’s planner, Shuu-chan-senpai! ♪

He’ll be available for fans to own shortly!

I personally really wanted to show off this expression to everyone for ages… I’m so glad I finally got it off my chest! _(°ω°」 ∠)_

Looking at that expression captures such a purity that really shows just how much Hinata loves volleyball!! (/ω\)

Anyway, as I’m sure many of you have noticed, the above photos featured some net parts! But Hinata actually only comes with half of the net – the other half will be included with the next Nendoroid in the series!

Another thing you may have noticed is the Volleyball Court Base! (`・ω・´)
Making use of this base instantly brings out the atmosphere of the series! ♪

Another thing I accidentally found out…

He can also be used to hold up your smartphone!

As long as you can get the prop into just the right position it allows for a rather unique display method! φ(.. )

There are various other optional arm and leg parts as well!!
There are so many different poses you can enjoy!

For example!
How about a slightly embarrassed looking pose…!


…or practising balance with a ball on his head!


…or a pose to make you think of the line…
“Toss to me! Come on!”

If you decide to pick him up for yourself be sure to think up your very own poses and situations too! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
