Hizamaru (Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I feel like going to visit Kyoto again… I need to go at least once more before the end of the year! Today I’m going to be taking a look at the…
1/8th Scale Hizamaru!

From the popular browser and smartphone game “Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-” comes a 1/8th scale figure of Hizamaru based on his standard standing illustration from the game. His slim, fit build, powerful looking stance and iconic hair style have all been captured as faithfully as possible in figure form. The figure can be enjoyed from any angle you please and is filled with details that bring out Hizamaru’s charm. Be sure to add him to your collection!

“I am Hizamaru, a treasure of the Minamoto family. Have you seen my brother around?”

The sword known as a priceless treasure to the Minamoto family, Hizamaru, has been transformed into a scale figure! His asymmetrical light green hair, stylish outfit and elegant appearance has all been captured so perfectly!!

The back of the figure also looks amazing!

The tight fitting outfit shows off his fit and slim body!

You’ll notice there are also a couple of creases at the bottom of his shirt for a little bot of realism, but if you look a little higher up you’ll notice there are little to no creases up higher as he holds out his chest in confidence! It also brings out his fit physique! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

The sword he holds in his left hand is attached to his side with metal fixtures that are so very intricate!

Areas like this you don’t normally notice when looking at him from the front, but even so the details of the metal parts and the ties have been so beautifully sculpted! Be sure to take a look all over the figure once he joins your collection! (∩・∀・)∩

The accessories of his outfit on his chest and around his shoulders have also been included in lovely detail! ★

▲ The different layers of his outfit, the gradient on the tassel… so much to see!

The ties of his armor on the back of his legs and even the fasteners of his boots all look amazing!

▲ The little bows and the creases in his pants! So intricate! (´□`。)

His hairstyle is rather unique in the way it flows out to the sides, but the sculpt has carefully taken this into account to ensure that no matter what angle you look from the flow of his hair still looks nice and natural! ♪

Speaking of his hair, the original illustration had the front section of his hair is see-through, and this has been captured on the figure with the use of translucent parts…

However, in order to keep the figure from looking too strange the transparency has been kept to a lower degree than on the illustration, so you can’t quite make out his entire right eye through the hair. (/ω\)

That said, if you change the angle you will see that the eye has still been faithfully included on the design! If you want to see both his eyes simply find an angle that allows it!

▲ I personally quite like looking up at him from a lower angle like this!

Also note the way that each and every one of his fingers has been sculpted with a different nuance that make them look so strong and manly! The fingers on the Touken Ranbu figures always look so amazing to me!

He really is one of those figures that really changes depending on the angle you choose to look from, so I hope that everyone will enjoy looking for the angle they like best once he arrives in their collection! Not to mention that you can slide your finger along all these beautiful details for yourself!!

Be sure to add the prized sword to your collection!
1/8th Scale Hizamaru!

He’ll be up for preorder from the 31st October!

Be sure to check the Good Smile Company Website for more details! ♪

Nendoroid Karen Hojo

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I focus pretty much all of my fashion sense into my fingernails! I wonder how I should do them up next time…

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Karen Hojo!

From the popular anime series ‘THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA GIRLS’ comes a Nendoroid of the Triad Primus member, Karen Hojo! She is posed wearing her school uniform and comes with three expressions including a gentle smiling expression, a composed yet cold glaring expression as well as an feverish expression with a forced smile to show she won’t give up! Her school bag is also included as an optional part.

Be sure to display her with the previously released Nendoroid Rin Shibuya and the upcoming Nendoroid Nao Kamiya to complete the Triad Primus group in Nendoroid form!

Ooooooohhh!! (/ω\)

The rather aloof modern day high school student and idol, Karen Hojo is joining the Nendoroids! You can see the nice detail on her outfit here – the loose pink ribbon, the shining necklace, chequered skirt and even her spinny twintails have all been beautifully crafted!

Even the jagged parting lines of her hair have been faithfully included! ♪

△  The hair connected by ball joints allowing for different nuances! ☆

As with all the previous Nendoroid from ‘THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA GIRLS’, she also comes with her school bag!

△ The bunny as well as other little accessories are included! ♡

Her announcement also means that the entire unit is here!

Triad Primus!! 

The three of them are not only now all together in Nendoroid form, but they will also be preforming as a unit at the Nendoroid 10th Anniversary Live!!

Don’t forget that Nendoroid Nao Kamiya is currently up for preorder as well! You could even grab them both together!! ♡

But anyway, let’s get back to Karen!!

Along with the standard expression above, she also comes with two alternate expressions to enjoy! The first of which is…

A Glaring Expression!

Those eyes look so cold…!

This expression is of course made more in the image of how Karen was at the start of the series! Even though she has a rather cold glare on her face she still looks beautiful to me!! This must be what they mean by a cool beauty! (/ω\)

Moving onto her third expression which is quite a jump from the glare, we have a feverish expression with a bit of a forced smile showing her slightly weaker constitution! (´□`。)

This expression featured in the game while she was dressed in her pyjamas! The cute smile would make anyone want to look after her until she gets well!!

Plus the expression can also be used as more of an unsure, embarrassed expression as well which will be fun for some original situations! ♪

△ Laughing while pointing… Karen makes it look cute!

Enjoy the cool, composed and cute charms of the young shining idol! ♥︎

Nendoroid Karen Hojo!

She’ll be up for preorder from the 22nd December! ♪

Be sure to check the GSC Site for more information! ε=(。・д・。)


Also note that as of today this new member has joined the Star Wars Nendoroids!

Nendoroid First Order Stormtrooper!

From the first movie in the new Star Wars trilogy, ‘Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens’ comes a Nendoroid of the First Order Stormtrooper! Even in Nendoroid form the details of the armor have all been kept intact ensuring the Nendoroid is not only cute, but also looks impressive! The Nendoroid is also fully articulated allowing for all sorts of fun poses!

The face section makes use of a glossy paint that allows even dim light to reflect back, preserving the shiny appearance of the Stormtrooper armor! Enjoy displaying the Nendoroid First Order Stormtrooper in all sorts of situations, night or day!

I’m sure many fans went to see the new Star Wars movie today! Be sure to check out the latest Nendoroid from the series as well!!  (・ω・ノ)ノ!
