Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
A typhoon hit Tokyo this morning and whenever a typhoon comes everyone eats croquettes! I was going to have one this morning and them completely forgot once I had left the house…
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a quick look at what sort of things you can expect to see over at the Good Smile Company 15th Anniversary event that is currently running in Akihabara!
You can see more details about the event here:
Let’s get started! ♪
– Entrance –
Such a relaxing, foresty entrance! If you look close you’ll notice there are various Nendoroids hiding in the greenery!
The GSC Lab members all had great fun placing Nendoroids all over the entrance area, so be sure to take a look and see how they are all posed! There are some really fun ideas!
– Photo Spot –
Here you can fold your arms and take a photo and it makes you look like a super important person no matter who you are! Here we have an example!

– Sakura Kinomoto: Stars Bless You –
The Sakura Kinomoto: Stars Bless You figure is on display and is also still up for preorder! But only for a little while longer!!
You are also welcome to take your own photos at the event, so be sure to bring a camera!!
– Nendoroid –
All the Nendoroids starting from Nendoroid #000 all lined up on display in numerical order!
The little monitors above the displays are playing the Nendoroid 10th anniversary video along with various older commercials and promotional videos from GSC’s history! You can see the Nendoroid 10th anniversary video over on YouTube as well!
We also have a special section dedicated to everyone’s favorite virtual idol Hatsune Miku, as well as a special section showing off the Hatsune Miku by iDoll x Nendoroid!
– Scale Figures –
This section has all GSC’s scale figures and other sculpted works from through the years!
This section is really a trip down memory lane! It brings back so many memories of series that you enjoyed in the past, or figures that may have been lost in your collection!
We even have the rather rare Artwork Series: Red Eyes Black Dragon on display!!
You’ll find him over on the far left end of the display!
– Nendoroid Petites –
Even the Nendoroid Petites included with magazines and special editions are all on display on this wall of adorable characters! You may even find there are some Nendoroid Petites of characters you never even knew existed!
– Nendoroid More –
The ‘Nendoroid More’ series was a series that was started up by myself and the other new graduates in the GSC Lab team at the time! It’s amazing to see that the series has expanded to have such a broad line-up that makes Nendoroids all the more enjoyable! I was even the one who came up with the name for the series!!
– Latest Figures –
The room to the right of the entrance features these latest figures on display at the far back! This includes the most recent announcements such as Yotsugi Ononoki DX as well as a couple of upcoming figures that are not even up for preorder yet!
There are also various cards showing products that are currently in development!
Nendoroid Shielder/Matthew Kyrielite went up for preorder today! Be sure to take a look for more details!!
The Nendoroid More: Face Parts Case (American Shorthair / Panda) are both on sale at the event! Be sure to pick some up if you’re interested!
Nendoroid Ludens is also on display!
Nendoroid Musashi as well as various other upcoming KanColle Nendoroids and more!! Nendoroid Musashi is currently on sale at the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP but stock is limited, so don’t miss out!
– 15th Anniversary Corner –
We also have the dolls from Thunderbolt Fantasy on display at the event! It’s so amazing to think that these are the actual dolls that made up these amazing scenes… ヾ(；ω；)
We also have various artworks from overseas artists that work with GSC on display, as well as a GSR video on display!
You can also see the Robot Factory Manager video on the big screen!!
– Message Board –
So many lovely messages from so many amazing people! A big thank you to everyone who left behind a message!!
If you do come by the event you are more than welcome to write your own message on the wall!!
– Sales Section-
The sales section can be found in the right area of the event hall toward the very back! Note that many items have limited stock though!
A big thanks to everyone who has or who is planning to stop by the event! We hope to see more fans stop by to take a look soon!!
The event is being run until the 4th September 2016, so if you are near Tokyo at any point before then be sure to stop by and take a look! We look forward to seeing you there!♪
