Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
When I was in college my second language was French! I chose it because I liked the sound of it, but my grades showed that I was never very good at it…
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Nendoroid Charlotte Dunois!♪
|From the popular anime series ‘IS -Infinite Stratos-‘ comes the fifth Nendoroid from the series, Charlotte Dunois! She comes with three expressions including a cheerful standard expression, an embarrassed expression and an angry expression wearing a fake smile.
She also comes with various optional parts to recreate scenes from the series – including her pendant, a strawberry crêpe and even an ‘IS’ activated right arm part! Special parts to recreate the running pose in the ending theme are also included. Be sure to display her with the previously released Nendoroids of Houki Shinonono, Cecilia Alcott, Lingyin Huang and Laura Bodewig
The kind and beautiful French IS representative who first joins the academy disguised as a male! Charlotte Dunois is joining the Nendoroids! ♥︎
This is how she looks from the back!
Her hair is tied up such a unique way! The tie also features a joint allowing for little changes in angle to match your poses better! It helps a lot when recreating the famous running scene from the ending theme! ♡
The release of Charlotte marks the long-awaited 5th character!
★Nendoroid Houki Shinonono (Released in August 2013)
☆ Nendoroid Cecilia Alcott (Released in August 2013)
★Nendoroid Lingyin Huang (Scheduled to Release May 2015)
★Nendoroid Laura Bodewig (Scheduled to Release August 2015)
Anyway, lets get back to Charlotte! Each of the characters has a slightly different version of the same uniform! Charlotte’s is faithfully preserved! ♡
But while I could talk about the beauty of her outfit for ages, I also want to move onto the optional parts, so let’s get started! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
She comes with an IS-activated arm part! ★
Only the right arm is included, but attaching it transforms her into battle mode in no time at all! The bizarre combination of her gentle smile and the large weapon is a little unnerving though!
Plus if an IS arm is included, then this also just had to come with her…
Charlotte comes with her pendant that is also the inactivated pendant form of her IS, Raphael Revive Custom II ♪
This can be held in her hand as above with some balance, but is actually designed to be hung around her neck! Use it however you see fit! ε=(｡・д・｡)
Charlotte is perhaps best known for her gentle smile, but she also comes with two other expressions! (*´Д｀)
First up is her embarrassed expression! Here she is being embarrassed with Nendoroid Laura Bodewig! ♡
△ “L-let’s go shopping together!”
Charlotte can get rather worked up when she can talk about fashion to someone like Laura who knows nothing about it! Plus another part that works perfectly with these two together… (●´ω｀●)
Charlotte comes with a strawberry crêpe! This means that together with Laura and her blueberry crêpe, you can recreate the scene from the show!
Finally her last expression…
Is another important expression for her…! (((( ;°Д°))))
An angry expression!
It might not look like it at first, but the reserved and rather antisocial Charlotte has her own way of showing her anger towards Ichika! She looks so cute even though I know she is really upset!! The expression makes use of a dark gradient from her nose upwards to create a slight ‘anger shadow’ across her face! ♥︎
The Nendoroid really allows for all sorts of different sides of Charlotte! From happy to angry and even combat scenes! I’m sure fans will be happy with her!
There are already all sorts of IS figures out there, but be sure to consider adding this Charl to your collection too! She is small and cute and ready to be loved!
Nendoroid Charlotte Dunois!
She’ll be up for preorder from Wednesday!♪
Plus orders from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a Mixed Berry Crêpe as a bonus! ♥︎
Also remember that Nendoroid Laura is also up for preorder, so you can grab them both together! (｀・ω・´)ゞ
