Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I like my omelettes fluffy! Just thinking of omelettes makes me really hungry though! Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Nendoroid Yamato! ♡
|From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the battleship Yamato with all her ship parts included, creating a rather large figure for a Nendoroid! The 46cm turret batteries on her back feature a special connection allowing them to aim forward, and each of the gun turrets are individually articulated for all sorts of options.
The ship parts can also be opened out through the use of a Nendoroid joint! She also comes with a ramune drink and omelette rice as optional parts, as well as explosion parts to display her being attacked! Anti-aircraft guns are also included and can be attached to recreate her ‘Kai’ appearance!
The long-awaited Nendoroid of the super-dreadnought developed in secret by the Kure Naval Arsenal as a trump card – Yamato! The largest Kanmusu to join the Nendoroids so far!! Even in the KanColle universe Yamato is seen as a sort of flagship for the series! ★
Her hair is tied high up but flows all the way down, gently blowing in the wind! The tight-fitting outfit has also been shrunk into Nendoroid size perfectly, with even the one sock longer showing off just one of her lovely long legs! Everything about her is so cute and fun to look at!
The ship parts are amazing, but by no means does that mean that Yamato herself isn’t! She’s beautiful!! ♥︎
Let’s see how she looks from the back! (o*・з・)o
The ship parts are so big you can hardly see Yamato herself!
You can at the very least still see her cute ponytail twisting around ever so slightly! Her radar umbrella is also faithfully included with a translucent plastic!
The huge ship parts remind you that she is a destroyer, but she also has these more gentle parts to show she has a more gentle side to her personality too!
Each of the flowers in her hair have also been sculpted one-by-one and the hair accessory that becomes a part of the radar has also been very intricately made! There are really just too many things to look at on this figure… I don’t really know where to start! o(ﾟдﾟo≡oﾟдﾟ)o
Let’s take a closer look at her ship parts! ★
The left and right sides of the ship parts are connected to the center piece with Nendoroid joints, so they can be moved around in all sorts of different ways!
I’m sure everyone will have a load of fun playing around with it when they get their hands on her! (｀・ω・´)ゞ
I’m sure most eyes jumped right to her chest first… but what I want to point out is what is holding in her hands! Armor-Piercing Rounds! (σ・∀・)σ
Various different sizes are included and each includes its own little stand!
But there are still many more parts to recreate battle scenes!! Σ(･ω･ﾉ)ﾉ！
Various effect parts for her turrets make for an amazing firing scene!! ☆
She really is huge for a Nendoroid!!
All seven of the turret batteries come with shooting effect parts! (´□｀｡)
Making use of all the effect parts makes for perhaps the most noticeable Nendoroid of all time! (Except perhaps Mikudayo…)
Plus the 46cm back cannon can be deployed to fire forward!
The battery itself can also be rotated around, meaning that Yamato can aim her cannon pretty much anywhere! So much firepower… but there is still more!!
“First of the Yamato-class battleships, Yamato!
Now with upgraded anti-air weaponry!”
Nendoroid Yamato even comes with anti-aircraft turrets for her left and right sides as well as an anti-aircraft machine gun for her left and right cannons as optional parts! These of course allow you to change her into Yamato Kai!
Plus she also comes with sitting lower body parts too!!
By the way! The very important details of the outfit have been faithfully included too! Take a look at the little opening in her skirt and you’ll notice a black sting and anchor!
As you can see here, the ship parts can also be completely detached allowing for a more standard Nendoroid size! She also comes with this alternate smiling expression which makes her look so very bright and happy!
Yamato Kai looking so very cheerful!! (●´ω｀●)
Oh yes! I jumped to the sitting parts too quickly! Note that she also comes with a left leg that include the ‘Hirihoukenten‘ kanji on her sock for the Kai version!
As I mentioned before though… people tend to focus on the ship parts a lot, but the Nendoroid itself is also amazing! Just look at the details on her outfit and hair!!(*ﾟｰﾟ*)
“H-Ha! That wasn’t even close to a direct hit!”
Aaaah!!! So cute!!! (/ω＼)
She has that cute look of an animal that has been surprised by something that suddenly moved! ♡ Torpedo strike effect parts are also included, making battle scenes look even more awesome!
And if you look from above…
Here you can get a good look at both the Kai Anti-air Machine Guns as well as the ‘Taking Damage‘ parts!
There are so many optional parts!
I’ve lost track of how many I’ve introduced now…. but we’re still not done!!
“Stop calling me a hotel! I’m not that big!”
Yamato’s ‘time calls’ in game include this line where she offers the admiral some Ramune to drink, so a bottle of Ramune is also included!! It’s make with a bit of shiny translucent material which really makes it look like there is some liquid inside!! (*´Д｀)
But we’re sill not done!!
She also comes with Omelette Rice!! ♥︎
Complete with a nice dash of demi-glace sauce and some green peas!
Such a lovely meal!♪ As expected of a hotel!
“I-I’m not a hotel…!”
The half-damage expression has a bit of an embarrassed look to it which works in various different situations! So cute!!
But that brings us to the end of her parts! ★
… SO MUCH STUFF! (°Д°；≡°Д°；)
Let’s take another look from another angle!
Along with everything above she also comes with the alternate expressions as well as various different arm and leg parts and sitting parts!! I get the feeling the packaging is going to be rather… large!
For those of you are thinking that we went a little overboard with this one… you’re right. I agree with you 100%! However!
She is the first of the Yamato-class battleships!
We had to make sure she lived up to that name!♡
Experience the amazing volume and charm for yourself! ♪
She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!☆
As with all the previous Nendoroids from Kancolle, orders from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will also come with a special box sleeve as well as a special Nendoroid stand! Be sure to keep that in mind when ordering!
By the way!
Orders for Ryujo close later today! Don’t miss out!
