figma Rikka Shiina (Little Armory)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I really can’t function in the heat of summer, and thus always rely on air con and fans. I can’t believe it’s still going to get even hotter than it currently is!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at this product from TOMYTEC that is currently up for preorder…
figma Rikka Shiina!

From TOMYTEC’s ‘Little Armory’ 1/12th scale weapon model series comes a figma of one of the series characters – the elite tactical girl’s school member, Rikka Shiina!
· The smooth yet posable figma joints allow you to act out a variety of different scenes.
· A flexible plastic is used in specific areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
· She makes use of drawer joints in her shoulders allowing her to easily wield the ‘Little Armory’ weapons.
· A plastic model runner kit for a Special Forces Carbine Rifle is included. The model is limited to the figma release and includes a holographic sight, muzzle booster, laser module, light, dual switch and foregrip as optional parts to attach to the weapon.
· She comes with both a standard expression and a more serious expression for combat scenes.
· Optional parts include an alternate skirt to pose her crouching, as well as a handgun with mounted light that can be holstered, and a transceiver.
· The background sheet of the product comes with two different target practice targets that can be cut out and displayed with her as a training ground.
· The package includes an original illustration by illustrator Haruaki Fuyuno.
· An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.

“If I concentrate, they all stop. All I have to to then is take them out them one-by-one.”


The second year student at Jyoushuu Girls Academy, Rikka Shiina is joining the figma series!! ヽ(゚∀゚ヽ 三 ノ゚∀゚)ノ

You can find out more about her character over on the official site below together with the beautiful illustration of her! (*´ェ`*)

▶ Rikka Shiina Character Profile (Japanese)

For those who are unaware, the Little Armory series is a set of 1/12th scale plastic model kits of various weapons that can be put together and displayed with your favorite characters! They are just the right size for figma figures! You can find a listing of the various products in the series here!

But getting back to the figma! Just like the previously released figma Miyo Asato she comes with a special alternate skirt part that allows for crouching poses ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

▲ Not just the skirt, but the bottom of the jacket is also specially re-sculpted!

These parts allow you to display her sitting…

crouching down…

Even sitting with her legs out!

It really opens up a whole new set of different poses with just a quick switch of parts! (ノ。・ω・)八(。・ω・。)八(・ω・。)ノ

You can even use these sitting parts for sexy poses like this!

All sorts of different options to play around with and enjoy! ♥

By the way, the figma also includes a Little Armory “Special Forces Carbine Rifle Exclusive Edition” as a runner kit to put together!

The parts are quite small, but I am told it is still made very quite easy even for beginners to put together!

The basic gun itself can be put together without any adhesive, but the more intricate parts to require some gluing!

The best thing is you can use combine her with the other items in the Little Armory series and really bring out the feel of the universe behind the series! 

All sorts of parts to bring your figma Rikka to the next level!ヽ(●´Д`●)ノ

figma Shoyo Hinata (Haikyu!!)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I was just watching a special recipe for tamago kake gohan and it made me rather hungry. I never knew there were so many different types to choose from, and even specialist restaurants!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at a figure celebrating his birthday on the 21st June…
figma Shoyo Hinata!

From the popular anime and manga series ‘Haikyu!!’ comes a figma of Karasuno High School Volleyball Club’s ultimate decoy, Shoyo Hinata!

· The smooth yet posable figma joints allow you to act out a variety of different scenes.
· A flexible plastic is used for important areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
· He comes with three face plates including a calm and composed expression, a serious expression to pose him during a match as well as a lively smiling expression.
· Accessories include a volleyball, net parts and a drink bottle to recreate various scenes from the court.
· An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.

A figma of the “Ultimate Decoy” from Karasuno High School’s volleyball team!

The long awaited first Haikyu! figma is none other than Shoyo Hinata, Karasuno High School’s “Ultimate Decoy”! His iconic spiky hairstyle as well as the Karasuno High team uniform and even his shoes and other accessories have all been sculpted in lovely detail!

▲ He looks just as great from the back! ♪

The figma comes with a nice selection of interchangeable hand parts allowing for various poses, and he also comes with three different face plates to choose from! ε=(。・д・。)

– Composed Face 

Such a calm, composed yet valiant expression!

You can really see his devotion to volleyball through those eyes!

– Serious Face 

The perfect expression to capture Hinata going for a spike!

The sharp eyes and shouting mouth really bring out the tension of the shot! Another thing that really shines about this particular pose is when you look at his shoes from the back!! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

The sole design has been faithfully included!

This level of detail on an action figure is what makes the figma series so impressive!! There is also a joint included at the very tip of his toes for slightly different nuances while posing!

Smiling Face Plate 

Such an innocent and cheerful smile! (*´Д`*)ノ

His love for the sport comes out in his smile so beautifully… plus he also comes with parts that bring out the feel of the volleyball court even more!

– Volleyball Net & Ball 

An extra long figma stand is even included allowing you to display Hinata showing off his incredible jump! It’s a scene right out of the series! (´□`。)

The net is made with a clear sheet of plastic with lines printed on it! Simply just placing it beside the figma brings out the atmosphere so much more!

▲ Obviously the volleyball itself is also included with the figure! ♪

Drink Bottle 

Wiping his mouth after a drink of water!!

The bottle also comes with a special hand that allows him to hold it with ease!

A total of three face plates, various accessories and interchangeable hand parts! So many display options for Hinata once he joins your collection! ♥

Here is is compared with his Nendoroid! (*´∀`)ノ

▲figma is approx. 14.5cm, Nendoroid is approx. 10cm in height!

If anyone owns a Nendoroid but has never had a figma, this should give you a good feel for the size of a figma figure! (∩・∀・)∩

▲ Chibi and not chibi! They each have their own good points! ♪

For those who are unfamiliar with the figma series, you can find out more about them on the official figma site! Simply put, they are a collection of PVC action figures that incorporate both “Beauty” and “Articulation”! In other words they not only look great, but can also be posed in all sorts of different ways!

You can even pose them in original poses such as this sitting pose!

Be sure to move him around in all sorts of ways once he joins your collection!

Add the “Ultimate Decoy” that never gives up to your collection!
