Osomatsu-san Diorama Figure (Osomatsu-san)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I want to go out and enjoy the cherry blossoms with a nice bowl of oden!! I guess the season for oden is coming to an end now…!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at this…
Osomatsu-san Diorama Figure!

From the anime series ‘Osomatsu-san’ comes a special figure based on an original illustration by character designer Naoyuki Asano that features all six of the Matsuno brothers together! The illustration was based on the opening theme of the anime series where the six brothers jump out together, and the figure faithfully captures the dynamic feel together with a detailed base and background that creates a complete scene for the figure!

Each of the characters has been carefully sculpted to capture their unique traits, while also carefully tuning the figure as a whole to create a high-quality work of art that fans will be proud to add to their collection! Whether you choose to look at it from a distance and enjoy the characters as a group, or instead look up close at your favorite characters – don’t miss out on this amazing diorama figure!

The six grown-up Matsuno brothers as a single figure!

The figure was based on an original illustration drawn by the character designer for the series, Naoyuki Asano! ♥

The pose is a colorful and cute reminder of the opening theme to the series, with each of the characters in a pose that suits their individual personality!

Plus at the very bottom you have a base that is also made in the image of the Matsuno brother’s head shape to even further bring out the random atmosphere of the series! ヽ(゚∀゚ヽ 三 ノ゚∀゚)ノ

Of course, with the conversion into figure form all the areas that were never visible on the illustration have been faithfully sculpted to view from any angle you choose!!

Let’s start off with a 360° spin! ☆

Colorful and full of excitement!

While the figure features all six characters each and every one of them has been individually sculpted to capture their unique characteristics! I said earlier that the figure was a faithful representation of the illustration – but there is one difference if you look very close!

You may have noticed that on the illustration the colors used for the characters and the background are the same shades, but on the figure the characters and background use slightly different colors. The reason for this is that on an illustration it looks good, but when made into a 3D figure the same colors blend into each other which meant it made more sense to alter the colors slightly!

This is one of those examples that shows just how important the painting of the figure is! It’s not all just about the sculpt!

Anyway, let’s take a closer look at each of them starting with the oldest! ★

◆ Osomatsu ◆

A lovely, cheerful smile and pose! Even the details of his fingers have been carefully crafted!

◆ Karamatsu ◆

Those thick eyebrows and a pose trying to look as cool as possible! Just look at those low sunglasses and stylish placement of this right hand! The bundled up sleeves also look great! (・∀・)!!

◆ Choromatsu ◆

A rather upset looking mouth! You’ll notice the figure is tuned to look at as a whole with Osomatsu in the center, which is why the left side of his mouth appears slightly longer when you look at him directly from this angle.  

It really is fun to compare all the characters personalities just by looking at the figure! You really get a good feel for the differences between the brothers!

◆ Ichimatsu ◆

A kind of sleepy smile together with his classic half-closed eyes! Note that his slightly messy hair has also been captured with the sculpt! ☆

◆ Jyushimatsu ◆

A wide open mouth with his arms up in the air for a super playful and energetic pose! The back of his hair sticking up too!! I can just imagine his voice playing through my head!

◆ Todomatsu ◆

Last but not least we have a jumping Todomatsu with his one leg far out to the side of the figure! The height of each of the brothers has also been carefully tuned to be faithful to the series!

They all look lovely! Plus the best thing is that as it is a figure you can completely change the angle and enjoy a rather unique appearance such as this one! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

▲ Be sure to spin it around and find your favorite
angle once they join your collection! ♡

Another little bonus with the figure! 

The speech bubble part on top of Ichimatsu actually has a little opening in it! This allows you to insert a piece of paper or something similar…

To use the figure as a kind of memo stand!

This is just one way of making use of it! I’m sure there are other fun options that fans will figure out soon enough!

By the way, hasn’t anyone wondered how Jyushimatsu is being held up higher than the others? If you look from the side you can see!!

A fountain is shooting him up higher than the others!

▲ You can also see the water fountain from above!

Enjoy the Osomatsu-san universe in your collection with a single figure! ♡

Nendoroid Japan (Hetalia The World Twinkle)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

The cherry blossoms have finally started to bloom here in Japan! Today is also the day that the new recruits come to join the GSC ranks!! I can’t wait to meet them and see what kind of characters they have ♪

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

Nendoroid Japan!

From the popular anime “Hetalia The World Twinkle” comes a Nendoroid of Japan! He comes with both a modest standard expression as well as an impassioned expression for when he talks about food!

Optional parts include the case for his bamboo sword, his pet dog Pochi-kun as well as some Japanese rice for him to eat and talk about! He also features a special round base decorated with cherry blossoms to bring out the Japanese atmosphere! Be sure to add the shy and somewhat mysterious Japan to your collection!

“I’m so very sorry for troubling you.”

The character who excels at sensing the mood and being overly reserved; the quiet and diligent young man ‘Japan’ is joining the Nendoroid series!  His rounded silky looking hair, cute pose with his hands held in front of him as well as the elegant yet dignified look on his face… (*´ェ`*)

 

All of his characteristics have been captured in Nendoroid size! ♥

The white uniform he wears has also been sculpted in detail with even the little buttons and collar faithfully represented!

▲ The golden area around the sleeves have a slightly shiny paint! ♪

He also comes with a nice selection of optional parts! Let’s take a look at them! ヽ(●´Д`●)ノ

– Bamboo Sword Case –

This comes with a string that allows him to carry it on his back like above! Note that the actual material of this string to be used on the final product is still under consideration and is likely to change!

This is how he looks carrying it from the front!

▲ The parallel arm makes for a cute pose even when just standing up straight!

– Sitting Parts & Rice Bowl & Chopsticks –

Not only does he comes with chopsticks and a bowl full of rice with an umeboshi on top, but he also comes with sitting parts!! ε=(。・д・。)

But that’s not all, he also comes with a passionate expression, perfect for posing him talking about food!! The slight blush on his cheeks, serious eyebrows and square-shaped open mouth make for a rather different impression when compared with the previous face plate!! It’s that contrast that makes it all the more fun though! ♥

The important umeboshi has also been sculpted on top!

▲ I wish I could talk about food while enjoying a meal with him!!

– Pochi-kun –

The somewhat despondent looking eyes of Pochi-kun are perfect!!

The soft and round appearance with little stubbly legs has also all been captured to display together with Japan!

Not only can you display him by his side, but you can also display Nendoroid Japan holding him!

▲ It’s as if he is staring down at Pochi-kun! So cute!!

Although he only comes with two face plates, there are a nice selection of rather large optional parts which allow for all sorts of different scenes and situations!

In addition, he also comes with a special round Nendoroid base that features a cherry blossom design! ✿

Capture the spirit of Japan in cute Nendoroid size! 
Nendoroid Japan!

He’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!!

Heshikiri Hasebe (Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-)

Today’s Main Feature!

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at the 1/8th scale…
Heshikiri Hasebe!

From the popular browser and smartphone game ‘Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-‘ comes a 1/8th scale figure of Heshikiri Hasebe based on his standard standing illustration from the game! While he has gentle smile on his face he still retains a calm and composed look, and his deep purple western-style outfit has been faithfully preserved down to the finest of details. The figure is overflowing with charm and will be proud stand by your side, so be sure to add him to your collection!

“Leave it to me. I shall provide only the best possible results.”

The sword who is loyal to his master and will obey any order without hesitation: Heshikiri Hasebe is joining the 1/8th scale Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- figures!

His painted prototype was revealed at the last Wonder Festival, but he is now finally come to the point where preorders are just around the corner!

Since WonFes the sculpt and paintwork have been even more refined to bring out his cool and composed appearance beautifully on the figure!! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Heshikiri Hasebe’s characteristic outfit and accessories have all been faithfully transformed into figure form. That deep royal purple makes him look so stunning!

▲ The outfit fits him so nicely! It makes him look so ascetic!

The pose is based on  his standard illustration from the game and captures that calm, composed and perhaps somewhat stoic appearance together with a nice dynamic feeling that really makes it seem like he is walking forward!

It’s quite hard to put into words, but even though the sculpt captures the soft flow of the fabric as it billows around him, the heavy pull down of the overcoat has also been captured so nicely!

The sculptor this time around was Kohirou! Amazing work that captures the outfit, armor and sword perfectly…

This goes for all of the Touken Ranbu scale figures so far, but there really is something so special about them that makes them really stand out and bring about their own atmosphere even as a figure! It really feels like Heshikiri Hasebe is right beside you!!

It’s just a figure but it’s as if he could be breathing… there is something about him that makes him look so alive!

Also note the thick appearance of his gloves! ♪


Be sure to take a nice close look at each of his little fingers once he joins your collection! ヽ(●´Д`●)ノ

Next let’s take a look at his shoes!!

The leather shoes are not only sculpted beautifully, but the shiny appearance of the leather has been preserved with the paintwork to bring out the texture of the leather!

The way his pants slightly cover the top of the shoes with creases where the shoes match up also show the careful attention to detail! ★

Time for a closer look at his face!!

Those eyes…!

Those eyes capture his loyalty and the line from that I started with the blog with so well: “Leave it to me. I shall provide only the best possible results.”

▲ Those confident eyes and eyebrows look great! ♪

The expression not only makes him look determined and loyal, but the fact that it is also a smile captures his more gentle demeanour as well! I would be so happy to be Heshikiri’s master and have this confident smile to cheer me on each and every day!!

There is still a lot more I want to say, but I’m going to have to leave it at this for now!

I will be taking a much closer look at the figure together with his head planner next week on a love broadcast, so I do hope everyone will tune in to get a closer look!!
