Nendoroid Toru Oikawa

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’m actually really bad at volleyball. I remember watching as each person went up to serve… dreading the fact that my turn was getting closer and closer. That said, I do really enjoy watching it!!!

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

Nendoroid Toru Oikawa!

From the volleyball anime series with a second season on the way ‘Haikyu!!’ comes a Nendoroid of Aobajohsai High’s volleyball team captain, the ‘Grand King’ Toru Oikawa! He comes with three expressions including his standard smiling expression which sees through anything, a fearless expression showing his confidence as the ‘Grand King’ as well as a more playful expression with his tongue sticking out.He comes with a variety of optional parts allowing you to display him in various poses including a serving pose. A volleyball and special stand made in the image of a volleyball court are both included to bring out the atmosphere of the series, and he also comes with effect parts to display him performing his powerful ‘murder serve’ as well as his jersey for a slightly different look. Enjoy the Grand King of the court right in your collection!

Oikawa-saaaan!! (´□`。)

Aobajohsai High’s volleyball team captain and highly aggressive setter is joining the Nendoroids! Toru Oikawa! His preorders are opening up shortly, so it’s time for me to take a quick look! ☆

That confident pose and relaxed smile even before the match begins… Oikawa-san’s bold personality has been captured beautifully!

Plus even though his expression looks rather gentle and friendly, somehow I get the feeling that I know what Kageyama means when he says that Oikawa is just hiding his bad personality. His characteristic spiky hairstyle has also been nicely shrunk down into Nendoroid size! ♪

Note how soft and squishy his cheeks look from the back!

As with the previous Nendoroids in the series, Oikawa-san also comes with a rectangular volleyball court base to bring out the feel of the series even more! By the way, Oikawa-san is the third character to be released from Haikyuu! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ


△ Released January 2015

 


△ Released May 2015

* These two are also available in their Jerseys! See below more more info!

 

Which means this if the first Haikyu!! Nendoroid from a school other than Karasuno High! Nendoroid Yu Nishinoya has also been announced, but this makes me wonder if we can expect even more characters after that!

But let’s get back to Oikawa-san! Just like Hinata and Kageyama, he comes with special parts that allow you to display him serving!! The included ball even comes with a three-level stand to display it nice and high, showing off Oikawa-san’s epic jump!! ε=(。・д・。)

Staring intently at the ball, and then…

*Pow!*

He comes with his fearless expression showing the might behind his ‘murder serve’!

A broad grin on his face together with those sharp eyes. Oikawa-san is in full combat mode an ready for anything!! (*´Д`)=з

The ball also comes with effect parts show the force behind his attack!! ♪

△ The effect parts connect into the stand and then into the ball!

Plus he also comes with this item which looks great with the fearless expression!! 

A jersey fluttering in the wind!! ★

If the expression wasn’t imposing enough, now he looks even more confident with a jersey over his shoulders…! I’m so glad that you can pose him like this!! (●´ω`●)

Even from the back it looks intimidating!! Such power!!

△ The ‘Aobajohsai’ logo is faithfully printed on the back!

However! While Oikawa-san is very serious when it comes to matches, he also has a bit more of a playful side that you can also enjoy with the Nendoroid!

His third expression is this playful expression with his tongue sticking out! (ゝω・´。)

An excellent choice of expression by the figure’s planner, Chanshuu-senpai! At least I think so!! The expression also has a bit of an upward gaze…

It’s so annoyingly cute!! (/ω\) 
(*This is a compliment)

Plus with a quick change of his hand parts…

You can pose him as if apologizing! Not that he means it!

The expressions of the Haikyu! Nendoroids have really been amazing! They capture all sorts of emotions and personalities so nicely!! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Be sure to display him together with the previously released Nendoroid Shoyo Hinata and Nendoroid Tobio Kageyama to really bring out the series! ♡

Enjoy the ‘Grand King’ in a cute, Nendoroid size!!
