Piyokuru: Fate/Grand Order 01

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I hope everyone got lots of flowers and chocolate today! Personally I prefer bitter chocolate to milk chocolate!!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at a new series of capsule toys developed by Good Smile Company!! ★

Piyokuru: Fate/Grand Order 01!

The characters from Fate/Grand Order are the very first characters to be released in the new capsule toy series, Piyokuru! There are a total of six different characters to collect including Saber/Altria Pendragon, Shielder/Mash, Caster/Cu Chulainn, Main Character (Male), Main Character (Female) as well as Romani Archaman.

The little eggs are designed to open up using a mechanism which requires just one quick touch in order to open up! The cute little toys can be displayed beside you and opened and closed for fun, and each also comes with a ball-chain which allows it to be attached to various items allowing you to bring your favorite character with you wherever you like! Be sure to collect them all!

The characters of Fate/Grand Order, hatching from eggs!

Let’s start with a quick explanation of what the Piyokuru series is! (●‘∀‘●)ノ”

The Piyokuru series makes use of a one-touch mechanism and multiple springs to quickly hatch a character out of their shell!

Each of the characters inside the shell have been carefully detailed to capture all of their more intricate characteristics have been carefully captured on the inner designs and the quick and easy opening and closing of the eggs is a very simple yet fun gimmick!


▲The inside twirls around like this!

When you push the front, the inner character actually spins around at an incredibly fast speed that you can hardly see! ♪

Tori Bird also takes a look at the series on his latest YouTube video – this should give you an even better feel for the way they open up!

Each is palm-sized, which feels like just the right size!

▲ They feel right at home in my hands! (・∀・)

The very first series to join the Piyokuru series is none other than the popular smartphone game, Fate/Grand Order! ヽ(゚∀゚ヽ 三 ノ゚∀゚)ノ

Saber/Altria Pendragon

You can enjoy just one, display them in pairs, all together…

Or simply just play around with the opening gimmick! ☆

The face is printed on from the start, but the body area and hair parts are included as stickers which need to be placed on the character after purchase!

▲ See the instructions included on how to attach the sticker!

In addition, each Piyokuru also comes with a ball chain which can be threaded through the top to easily attach the little egg to various other items allowing you to carry around your favorite character with you! ε-(o´ω`o)

▼ The ball chain is included in the bottom of the shell!

Be sure to grab some and see for yourself just how fun it is to open and close the eggs!
