Nendoroid Co-de: Sophie Hojo

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

My hay fever is really acting up at the moment! Whenever it rains I know the next day is going to be terrible! Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at the next in the Nendoroid Co-de series!

Joining the new ‘Nendoroid Co-de’ brand of Nendoroids is Sophie Hojo from the popular anime PriPara! There are two different versions to enjoy – Sophie comes in her Holic Trick Cyalume Co-de or White Swan Co-de!

Both of the outfits are from the stylish ‘Holic Trick’ brand – one is the cyalume co-de and the other is the outfit used when Sophie performs her solo stage, ‘Solar Flare Sherbet’!

Be sure to display her together with the previously announced Laala Manaka and Mirei Minami Nendoroid Co-de figures, which will allow for all sorts of different outfit combinations!

Sophiiiiiiiiiiieee!!! (´□`。)

The stylish character with two very different personalities that are both equally lovable! Her long red hair and slightly mysterious eyes are so very lovely, as are the outfits from the ‘Holic Trick’ brand!

This also means that all three members of SoLaMi♡SMILE are all officially up for order! ♥︎

Once more for those who have missed out on recent blogs… 

A Quick Nendoroid Co-de Recap!

 

Nendoroid Co-de is a new addition to the Nendoroid series based on the theme of dressing-up characters! The figures have fixed poses and each come with four parts – the head, upper garment, lower garment and shoes. Each of these parts can be swapped between characters allowing for all sorts of possibilities. The more you collect, the more dress-up options become available to you!

In other words…! They are simple fixed pose Nendoroids, great for new collectors and with the ability to dress-up in various ways! Great fun for both young and old fans! 

For more information, be sure to check out the…

Nendoroid Co-de Special Site!

Here you can find out more about the Nendoroid Co-de series as well as test out some of the possible outfit combinations that will come from the first three characters! 

The page also features a new ‘This Week’s Co-de’ which shows off a specific Co-de each week!! Check the page on Mondays for a new Co-de!

Anyway, let’s get back on to Sophie’s review! 

Nendoroid Co-de: Sophie Hojo – Holic Trick Cyalume Co-de

“Girls be free! Valkyria!!”

The combination of white, red and black make for a kind of rocky, but Gothic outfit that has an incredibly stylish feel to it! She is posed with a microphone singing for her fans! The red ribbons on the top of the boots and the frilly skirt really bring out both the cool and the cute so nicely! ♥︎


△ Definitely a different taste in outfit compared with Laala and Mirei!

Next up we have…

Nendoroid Co-de: Sophie Hojo – White Swan Co-de

“Have you all been behaving? My little caged birdies…”

I-I’m behaving!! I’ve been patiently waiting for you!!!

A simple outfit featuring a lovely mix of black and white! It is such an amazing outfit to mix and match with others! (●´ω`●)

Her long hair makes it a little difficult to see, but I want to highlight the back of her outfit!!

It’s open at the top showing off some skin!!

The white gloves and slightly sexy outfit all come together to create a rather mature co-de! That brings my basic review to an end…. but that means it’s time for…

COORDINATE TIME!! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

 

\Co-de Change!! ♪/

· Head: Sophie Hojo – Holic Trick Cyalume Co-de
· Upper: Sophie Hojo – White Swan Co-de
· Lower: Sophie Hojo – Holic Trick Cyalume Co-de
· Shoes: Sophie Hojo – White Swan Co-de

A mix and match between the two outfits!!

Mixing parts of outfits between the same character is definitely the easiest! The combinations almost always look great! ♪

Next let me try from parts from Mirei Minami!☆

· Head: Sophie Hojo – White Swan Co-de
· Upper: Mirei Minami – Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de
· Lower: Mirei Minami – Magical Clown Co-de
· Shoes: Sophie Hojo – White Swan Co-de

Next up, let’s move on to our now standard Co-de extra!

The GSC Staff’s Recommended Co-de!!

1) Sales Team: Murakami

Some of you might remember Murakami from the Japan Pilgrimage event!

He also often stops by Akihabara stores, so many of you might have had the chance to meet him!

This is his recommended Co-de ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

· Head: Sophie Hojo – White Swan Co-de
· Upper: Mirei Minami – Magical Clown Co-de
· Lower: Laala Manaka – Twinkle Ribbon Cyalume Co-de
· Shoes: Mirei Minami – Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de

Suddenly the amazing pose from Mirei’s body is on Sophie!!

 

Excellent work, Murakami!!

The colorful look of Mirei’s outfit suits Sophie just as well! I’m also sure she’d look great with Laala’s complete outfits too! ♡

 

2) Advertising Team: Yoshii

Last year’s new graduate in the advertising team!

From April we’ll have all new graduates coming in! I wonder what kind of people they will be! Anyway, while she is busy getting ready for AnimeJapan this weekend she took the time to make this Co-de!

· Head: Sophie Hojo – Holic Trick Cyalume Co-de
· Upper: Laala Manaka – Twinkle Ribbon Cyalume Co-de
· Lower: Mirei Minami – Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de
· Shoes: Mirei Minami – Magical Clown Co-de

Ooooh! A very classic looking idol!

She seems so much more gentle in this outfit! (/ω\)

The mix of the swinging arm and bent leg parts also make for a rather dynamic scene! Yoshii has cleverly thought out not only the outfit, but also the pose!!

Anyway, Sophie’s release means that finally all three members of SoLaMi♡SMILE are up for preorder! Once they are released I want to see photos of everyone’s recommended Co-des! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Each purchase of will also include a special original ‘Friend Ticket’ that can be used in the PriPara game! More details about that at a later stage! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Plus! Just like Laala and Mirei, orders from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP will include decoration seals to add even more possibilities to your outfits! 

There is even a ‘Pickled Plum Pizza’ Sticker! <○><○>

These can easily be attached to the hair parts or the outfits to add an extra little customization! ♥︎

But that’s not all!
