Nendoroid Suzuya & Nendoroid Kumano

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’d pick a croquette over a sandwich on most days!
I like the more moist feeling that comes with them!

But anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Suzuya &

Nendoroid Kumano!

The SuzuKuma pair are being announced simultaneously!

The matching blazers of the Mogami-class cruisers just had to be released together!

I’ll be taking a closer look at both of them today, starting with…

Nendoroid Suzuya!

“Suzuya is on the job! Just leave it to me!”

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the third Mogami-class heavy cruiser, Suzuya!

Suzuya comes with cannon parts to fire upon her enemies, as well as a Type 0 Recon Seaplane to display her as an aircraft cruiser, helping to ensure she won’t lose to Kumano! A Destroyer I-Class is included for her to fight against, along with parts to display her being shot at! Special parts for holding hands with Kumano are also included.

Suzuya has a bit of a high-school student feel to her, which comes out in the posing of those hand parts! The expression and pose bring out her character very nicely! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

The above expression is her standard expression, but she also comes with this gentle smiling face!

Suzuya’s bright and confident smile! Her knee-high socks made in the image of the deck of a ship are also faithfully included! ♪

(・∀・) “Be sure to take a nice close look if you pick her up!”

We’re joined by the Nendoroid’s planner, Admiral Kyojin!!

(・∀・) “If you’re wondering what she is holding, that would be an aircraft cruiser. The Type 0 Recon Seaplane by her side is also included to pose taking off from the cruiser parts or flying around her!”

These are included to recreate Suzuya Kai!

The little details on the hand attachment are really amazing! ε=(。・д・。)

(・∀・) “There are still lots more parts to come!” 

\ “Ugh! Yucky!!”/

Is this… what I think it is?!

(・∀・) “The Abyssal Destroyer I-Class is included as an enemy for her!”

This is actually the first time that an enemy ship has been included with a KanColle Nendoroid! He looks rather cute and comical in Nendoroid size! ♥︎

(・∀・) “The expression seen above is included as Suzuya’s more comical expression – it’s made in the image of her ‘Ugh! Yucky!’ line from the game!”

(・∀・) “She also comes with battle effect parts, but for a little change in pace that matches with the above expression rather well, she comes with parts that show her getting shot at instead of shooting!”

The effect parts attach like a bracelet onto the part, so you can attach it onto any arm parts! φ(.. )

Moving on… 

Nendoroid Kumano

“Good day to you! I am the heavy cruiser, Kumano!”

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the fourth Mogami-class heavy cruiser, Kumano!

Kumano comes with various turret parts to let her sink her enemies with ease and grace, as well as a Type 0 Recon Seaplane to display her as an aircraft cruiser! She also comes with a sandwich – her choice meal for lunch! A dresser with a mirror is included to display by her side to show her high-class taste and ladylike charm! Special alternate hair parts to pose her holding hands with Nendoroid Suzuya are also included!

The pose above suits her so perfectly! ♥︎

Her lovely chestnut brown hair is tied up in a ponytail at a very high point which is fitted with a Nendoroid joint to match your posing! ♪

Let’s take a look at some unique points here!

1.  The turret’s shoulder strap is made from leather!

The bendability helps make sure that the strap doesn’t get in the way of poses, but still looks nice! Nendoroid I-401 also featured this! ♪

2. The main body and ship parts are connected with two Nendoroid joints!

This means you have full control in all directions of where the ship parts are, which helps prevent the hair and ship parts colliding and getting in the way of poses!  (Nendoroid Suzuya also makes use of this!)

Thanks to everyone’s love for the series we’ve made a load of KanColle Nendoroids now, and through their releases we’ve noticed that there are often problems with the ship parts colliding with the hair parts and preventing certain poses – thus we decided to create a way to prevent these problems from occuring, which was this double Nendoroid joint!

Anyway, let’s move onto the optional parts! (σ・∀・)σ

Kumano also comes with the aircraft cruiser parts and plane!

Her expression combined with these parts come together for a very confident and reassuring pose that suits Kumano nicely! ★

The Type 0 Recon Seaplane flying by her side helps bring out the atmosphere even more! (`・ω・´)ゞ

But Kumano isn’t all about combat! A fancy heavy cruiser built in Kobe needs something like this too!

A dresser with a mirror!! (*´Д`)♥︎

The pink curtains on the side give it a cute and elegant look! ♪

(・∀・) “She also comes with this expression, perfect to pose with the dresser!”

/ “Oh my! It’s already 3AM! How can this be!”

Another lovely expression!! (●´ω`●)

But she comes with other optional parts as well…

(・∀・) “A sandwich from the ‘convenience store'”

Kumano’s preferred lunchtime snack! I wish I could eat with her!!

Once again the KanColle Nendoroids have loads of lovely optional parts, but…

Seen they’re being announced together, I don’t suppose…? (`・д´・;)

(・∀・) “You guessed it! They also comes with special parts to display them together!”

Yay!!! Thank you, Thank you!! (/ω\)

This is how I want to see these two displayed!!

The holding hand parts looks different to the parts that were included with Ooicchi!

(・∀・) “They’re not just holding hands! These two are close enough for interlocked fingers and all!”

Ooooooooohhhh!!! (´□`。)

Absolutely delicious!!! ♡

(・∀・) “There’s more to it than meets the eye as well! The normal Nendoroid front hair parts would prevent these two from getting this close!” 

Hmm? So… how are they doing it then…?

(・∀・) “We came up with a plan! Kumano comes with special hair parts that allow for them to be posed as close as all Admirals know they should be!!!

These two parts help close the distance between the two!!  <○><○>

The interlocked hand parts are included with Nendoroid Suzuya, while the alternate hair parts are included with Nendoroid Kumano! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Definitely makes grabbing both of them all the more worth it!

(・∀・) “I hope fans are kind enough to display the two of them together! They wouldn’t want to be separated!”

Be sure to grab both! ♪

Nendoroid Suzuya!

Nendoroid Kumano!

They are up for preorder as of today! ♡

Orders from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP include a special base and sleeve as with all the previous KanColle Nendoroids! 

The sleeve designs will be revealed on the product pages at a later stage!
