Iowa Half-Damaged: Heavy Armament Ver. (Kantai Collection -KanColle-)

Today’s Main Feature!

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at Max Factory’s…
Iowa Half-Damaged: Heavy Armament Ver.!

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a new addition to Good Smile Company and Max Factory’s “Wonderful Hobby Selection” series of top quality figures – the US Iowa-class battleship Iowa in her half-damaged version!

The damaged appearance of her ship parts such as the bent gun turrets, broken bow and bridge have all been carefully sculpted and painted to create a convincing damaged appearance! The torn tights showing off her soft looking skin, as well as her beautiful long blond hair and playful expression have been detailed to create a cute figure of Iowa for fans to enjoy by their side!

“Ouch! You hit me pretty hard…
but I’ll get my pay back! Just you wait!”

Perhaps one of the most impressive battleships ever built, the USA’s Iowa has been transformed into a half-damaged scale figure for fans to enjoy!

▲Golden blond hair, a stunning body and a playful wink!

Not to mention the ship parts that give the figure some really impressive volume! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Iowa has previously been released as both a Nendoroid and a figma with equally impressive ship parts included with both!

– Nendoroid Iowa –

▲Released April 2017


figma Iowa –

▲ Released June 2017

The “half-damaged” figure lives up to its name with various little details all over to convey the damage! (´□`。)

▲ A chunk of metal taken out from the turret! (・∀・)

▲ The damage is not only sculpted, but also painted onto the design!

▲ Even the inside of parts that broken parts can
be seen when you look through the holes!♪

Of course the ship parts are only one side to this figure!! She also has a very beautiful body for fans to enjoy as well!! ヽ(゚∀゚ヽ 三 ノ゚∀゚)ノ

Her body looks so very soft and squeezable!! Just looking at her makes me reflexively want to reach and and touch her! (/ω\)

The torn appearance of her mini-skirt and other damaged parts of her outfit have all been sculpted in lovely detail! Be sure to take a look from all sorts of angles once she joins your collection!

If you look up at her impressive bust from a lower angle you get a good feel for just how big and heavy the Iowa Battleship was!! ♥

Another area that I personally really like are her legs!!

Just look at the way the torn stockings are pressing against her skin!! It has been captured so beautifully! I want to run my finger along them and feel the bumps along the way!! (*´ェ`*)

Be sure to add the USA Battleship to your collection!

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

Plus you can also display her together with the previously released figma Miyo Asato who is also currently up for rerelease!

▲ Displayed with various guns and the Gun Rack C! ☆

Add a Little Armory to your collection!
figma Rikka Shiina!

She is currently up for preorder!

Nikkari Aoe (Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
The 1/8th Scale Nikkari Aoe!

From the popular browser and smartphone game “Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-” comes a 1/8th scale figure of Nikkari Aoe based on his standard standing illustration from the game! His charming facial expression, white cloak and long hair blowing in the wind have all been captured in careful detail to capture the mysterious Aoe in figure form. The sculpt has captured Aoe’s character in beautiful detail and he is ready to stand by your side, so be sure to add him to your collection!

“Oh? Are you interested in me?”

The famous sword said to even be able to cut through ghosts, Nikkari Aoe is being transformed into a handsome scale figure!

The large white cloak he has draped over his shoulder makes use of translucent parts to faithfully capture the see-through look from the original illustration!

▲ He looks great from the back too! ♪

Note that the armored parts of his outfit have a shiny glossy finish, while the belt and other areas have a semi-matte finish to give them that leathery appearance!

Plus just look at all the creases in his outfit! They have all been sculpted in such intricate detail – the way they are done really make it look like the clothes are being “worn”, if you know what I mean. You can really imagine the body underneath the clothes thanks to the way they are creased. (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

His beautiful long hair has also been carefully preserved, with the unique colors recreated with a gentle gradient effect! ♡

▲ The ponytail blowing about behind him… so very beautiful!

The soft appearance of the white fabric has also been preserved through the sculpt – the gentle outline and coloring make it appear to have a soft and thin texture! ★

▲ Long legs with a positioned crease in the center of the pants for style!

The figure was sculpted by Max Factory’s Nanako!

The first time I saw the figure I thought it had to be Nanako!

Here are some other Touken figures also sculpted by Nanako… (*´∀`)ノ

Kogitsunemaru –

▲ Released January 2016

– Tsurumaru Kuninaga –

▲ Released August 2016

– Nakigitsune –

▲ Released December 2016

– Monoyoshi Sadamune –

▲Planned to release July 2017

They have all been sculpted with such careful attention to the original illustrations! It is always amazing to see Nanako’s work!

Just take a look at this particular part on Aoe!

That wrist bone and palm…! (´□`。)

Nikkari Aoe doesn’t show off a lot of bare skin, but this one little gap gives you a little peek! The closed hand holding the fabric and the joints of his fingers to create that motion have all been sculpted with so much detail!!

His refreshing gaze as well as the hair covering up his other eye have also all been included, plus of course that mysterious smile of his!

The exquisite look of those lips!! (/ω\)

The charm of the illustration has been transformed into a figure so very perfectly! It’s as if the illustration just jumped into the 3D world!!

The shape of his lips also look great from a higher angle!

There are all sorts of angles to be enjoyed! Be sure to find your favorite once he joins your collection!! ヽ(゚∀゚ヽ 三 ノ゚∀゚)ノ

The 1/8th Scale Nikkari Aoe!

He’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!

Plus all orders of Nikkari Aoe from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a Nikkari Aoe Sword Charm as a bonus! ★

Be sure to consider it when preordering!

Plus don’t forget that Mikazuki Munechika: Awakened Ver. is also currently available for preorder!


We also made a TV commercial for Mikazuki! Be sure to take a look! ♪
