Four Versions of the 1/8th Scale Musashi!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I went to the dentist and had a root canal… my cheeks are still numb from the anaesthesia…

Anyway! Today I’m going to be taking a look at the 1/8th scale…

Musashi: Heavy Armament Ver.!

 

Following on from the previously announced ‘Yamato Kai: Heavy Armament Ver.’ from Max Factory comes another 1/8th scale KanColle figure to join the ‘Wonderful Hobby Selection’ series of top-notch figures – this time it’s the second Yamato-class battleship, Musashi by Good Smile Company!

Musashi’s gallant appearance yet beautiful lady-like curves have been beautifully preserved on the figure. The huge ship parts which surround her provide a powerful and imposing look – with three 46cm three-barrel turrets and four 15.5cm three-barrel turrets all separately articulated! The ship parts can also be opened out to the left and right to create all new scenes that were not even seen in the game!

Oooooooooooohh!! (*´Д`)

Just look at those twin-tails twirling around her and still somehow managing to create a cute kind of animal ear look! Her tanned skin, glasses and impressive bosom are all faithfully included… not to mention the little peek of her belly button, her miniskirt and even a lovely gap of skin between her socks and skirt! She is packed with so much beauty!! 

Each part of that beauty has been very carefully sculpted!

Her serious expression and confident look are amazing… but what I really want to point out is just look at how squishy her boobies look!!

Perhaps it’s not so much the squishiness as it is the size that pulls our eyes though…

The gloves and fluttering jacket are all beautifully sculpted as well! (`・ω・´)

\”Where are you looking? I’m up here.”/

This angle gives a good look at her thighs, belly-button and modest stomach!

It also makes you ponder just where that strand of cloth going down into her skirt is headed… but that will be for you to find out when she arrives in your collection! ヾ(*ゝω・*)ノ

Moving on! Let me explain the WonHobby Selection once more!

Anyway, let’s get back to Musashi! ♪

In contrast to Musashi’s soft skin are her huge mechanical ship parts! <○><○>

Not only are each of the turrets articulated, but the large parts that surround  her also move!! ヽ(・ω・´(`・ω・´)ノ`・ω・)ノ

This section can be altered to move the ship parts out further!

If you extend both sides outward you get this effect!!

\ “Flagship Musashi, ready for action!” /

I hope my photos are able to capture just how amazing this is!

Plus the cannons on the left and right are on revolving platforms too!! (*゚ー゚*)

You can really create all sorts of different combinations with all the options given to you! Just find the one that looks best to you! 

 

By the way…!

For those of you who don’t think the ship parts necessary…

Musashi: Light Armament Ver.

Will also be available at the same time! ♪

The remaining turret on the right is of course articulated!

It can be spun around, and each of the turrets can also move up and down separately! ε=(。・д・。)

The ship parts definitely give her more of a presence, but this version still has the same amazing body to enjoy! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

 

 

PLUS! 

Musashi Kai: Heavy Armament Ver.

Will also be available at the same time!

 

 

Following on from the previously announced ‘Yamato Kai: Heavy Armament Ver.’ from Max Factory comes another 1/8th scale KanColle figure to join the ‘Wonderful Hobby Selection’ series of top-notch figures – this time it’s the second Yamato-class battleship, Musashi Kai by Good Smile Company!

Musashi’s gallant appearance yet beautiful lady-like curves have been beautifully preserved on the figure. The huge ship parts which surround her provide a powerful and imposing look – with three 46cm three-barrel turrets and four 15.5cm three-barrel turrets all separately articulated! The ship parts can also be opened out to the left and right to create all new scenes that were not even seen in the game!

Additionally, the six three-barrelled machine guns on her sides and two on her back are also included to truly complete the improved ‘Kai’ version.

The darker clothes make her look even more mature! ♡

Perhaps a more simply color scheme, but definitely one that suits her very well! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

However! The color change isn’t the only difference on the Kai version of Musashi!

Musashi Kai also comes with ‘six three-barrelled machine guns on her sides and two on her back’

Her back never actually even shows in the game, but we had the design done based on a real battleship!

The two machine guns on her back are currently still in production though!

They will be added onto the section circled in red here! φ(.. )

 

Finally!! 

Musashi Kai’s Light Armament Ver. will also be an option! Σ(・ω・ノ)ノ!

All this information may be a little confusing, so let me summarise! Tomorrow the 21st November 2014, four different versions of the Musashi scale figure will be going up for preorder!

◇ Musashi: Heavy Armament Ver.

◇ Musashi Kai: Heavy Armament Ver.

◇ Musashi: Light Armament Ver.
