Nendoroid Shokaku & Nendoroid Zuikaku

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Thanks to everyone who tuned into the live broadcast yesterday! Today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Shokaku & Nendoroid Zuikaku!

“Fifth Carrier Division, Nendoroid Shokaku. Ready to sortie!”
“Fifth Carrier Division, Nendoroid Zuikaku. Heading out!”

Apologies for the long wait! Both of the two Shokaku-class aircraft carrier sisters are going up for preorder today!!

△ They might be sisters, but they are each sold separately!

Let’s take a closer look at each of them!

◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇

Nendoroid Shokaku!

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the first Shokaku-class aircraft carrier, Shokaku! The Nendoroid is based on Shokaku’s ‘Kai Ni’ upgrade but also has parts to recreate her ‘Kai Ni A’ and standard versions. Nendoroid Shokaku comes with three expressions including her standard expression, an attacking expression for combat as well as a half-damaged expression.An alternate body to recreate her half-damaged appearance is also included, allowing fans to enjoy all sorts of different scenes. Other optional parts include a Type Zero Fighter Model 52 and three “Tenzan” aeroplanes to display around her – with one of the Tenzan planes upgraded to the Model 12 version. She also comes with some ice-cream just like her sister ship, Zuikaku.

“I’m Shokaku, the first Shokaku-class aircraft carrier. I strive to live up to the names of my seniors in the first and second aviation divisions together with Zuikaku!”

The gentle older sister always looking out for Zuikaku, Shokaku is joining the Nendoroids! The gentle demeanour and expression really capture her kind personality nicely!

However! Once she heads into combat… she looks just as ready to fight as any of the other ships!! ((>д<))


A Type Zero Fighter Model 52 and three “Tenzan” aeroplanes are included to display around her together with a shouting expression which looks great for combat scenes! ♥︎

Plus you may have noticed that the armor around her feet as also changed… as well as the circle on her headband! These alternate parts allow you to change her into the ‘Kai Ni’ upgraded version of Shokaku!! (σ・∀・)σ

But she comes with another set of similar parts!

Which allow you to display the ‘Kai Ni A’ Version! ★


△ Simply pick the version that you like the most! ♪

In addition, she also comes with parts to recreate her half-damaged appearance! っ(/ω\)

(…What an adorable expression…!!)

The burning effects on the ship deck with the black smoke billowing up to the sides also really adds to the damaged appearance of the ship, while the torn up clothes have been faithfully represented even in Nendoroid size!!

△ The smiley face logo on the leg joint peeking through the torn skirt!

Nendoroid Zuikaku!

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the second Shokaku-class aircraft carrier, Zuikaku! The Nendoroid is based on Zuikaku’s ‘Kai Ni A’ upgrade but also has parts to recreate her standard version. Nendoroid Zuikaku comes with three expressions including her standard expression, a half-damaged expression that doubles as an expression for combat scenes as well as a grumpy expression.

An alternate body to recreate her half-damaged appearance is also included, allowing fans to enjoy all sorts of different scenes. Other optional parts include a variety of aeroplanes to fly beside her such as a Type Zero Fighter Model 52, a Type Zero Fighter Model 62 (Fighter-bomber), a Zero Fighter Model 52C (Iwai Platoon) and a Suisei bomber. She also comes with some ice-cream just like her sister ship, Shokaku.

“I am the second Shoukaku-class aircraft carrier, Zuikaku. They call me the ‘lucky aircraft carrier’, but it’s not luck – I just try my very best at all times. So long as I have planes to launch, I’ll never be taken down!”

The slightly mischievous aircraft carrier with lovely black twin tails – Zuikaku is also joining the Nendoroids! ♥︎

That confident look in her eyes has been captured so nicely!! I can just imagine her energetic voice when I look at that face! Just like Shokaku, the ship parts connect into her back with a second Nendoroid joint allowing you to easily move them around to fit your pose!

I can’t wait to see some of the original poses that the Admirals out there will come up with!! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

Zuikaku is well known for her impressive line-up of planes, and to show that the Nendoroid comes with a Type Zero Fighter Model 52, a Type Zero Fighter Model 62 (Fighter-bomber), a Zero Fighter Model 52C (Iwai Platoon) and a Suisei bomber to fly by her side!


△ They are so tiny, but the differences between the types can be identified!

You can also switch out the deck parts and leg parts to display her in her Kai Ni A upgraded version, just like her older sister! ☆

Plus Zuikaku also comes with a damaged body..!

Just like Shokaku, she also comes with an expression to fit with the body…

For the full Kai Ni half-damaged pose!! (`・ω・´)ゞ

△ The sweat on her cheek and determined look show she isn’t going to give up!

Her third expression is this grumpy expression to capture the tsundere side of her personality for fans to enjoy as well! ♪

(I’m sure this can be used for all sorts of situations!)

Start thinking up some stories to make with her once she is released!! ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ

◆ ◇ ◆ ◇ ◆ ◇ ◆ ◇ ◆ ◇ ◆ ◇ ◆ ◇ ◆ ◇ ◆ ◇ ◆ ◇

Both of the sisters also come with… some ice cream!!

They can be posed enjoying some frozen treats together! ♡


△ The ice-cream is planned to slide between the fingers on certain hand parts!

In other words you can enjoy all sorts of poses from their standard poses and combat poses to half-damaged poses or even some special poses to show off their distinct personalities! There are so many options with the two of them!★

Simply pose them in the ways you prefer!! (。・ω・)ノ゙
