Nendoroid Uguisumaru (Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-)

Hello everyone! Long time no see! Chan-shuu from Good Smile Company’s planning team here! (@gscs_hirase)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at this item currently up for preorder…
Nendoroid Uguisumaru!

From the popular browser and smartphone game ‘Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the Bizen sword, Uguisumaru! He comes with three face plates including a standard face, a combat face as well as a smiling expression based on his “sometimes it’s good to take it easy” line from the game.

His sword can be displayed both sheathed or drawn allowing you to recreate various scenes from the game, and he also comes with parts that were seen in the 1st anniversary celebration illustration. Be sure to add him to your collection!

“Okanehira thinks too much of the ‘Five Great Swords’ title.”

A Nendoroid of the the Bizen sword, Uguisumaru and the 19th Nendoroid to join the Touken Ranbu series!! We’re almost at the big number 20!

▼ First up, a look at his hair!

You may notice that the hair over his right eye actually makes use of slightly translucent parts! It’s a little hard to see in the light, but if we darken the room and shine a light on him…

You can see the bottom of the hair has a slightly see-through look to it and you can just make out the skin color beneath the hair! This is in order to capture the original illustration as faithfully as possible!

▼ Next a look at his outfit!

​​​​​​​

The green bracer and mostly black outfit give him a very stylish look! The white belt also creates a lovely contrast! The crest on his chest is rather tiny but still has such amazing detail!

▼A look from the back!

​​​​​​​

Uguisumaru’s iconic spiky hair looks great from the back as well, with each of the tufts of hair carefully sculpted and positioned! This was actually one of the most difficult parts to get right on the Nendoroid! (´∀`;)

▼ Also note his sword!

The sword is sheathed on his hips and includes semi-glossy gold parts which add a nice touch to the black and matches with his outfit nicely! ♪

▼ Switch to a Combat Pose!

​​​​​​​

He comes with a combat expression with clenched teeth and a sharp gaze, and he can also be posed with his sword drawn and held in his left hand! ♪

▼ Combat Pose #2

​​​​​​​

Here I attempted to pose him in the moment before he switches from single-handed to two-handed wielding! From this angle you can see that his right eye is actually closed for this expression! Even though it is covered by his hair the entire expression is always faithfully included! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

▼ His third face plate!

​​​​​​​

▲ “Sometimes It’s Good To Take It Easy

The Nendoroid even comes with a tray including tea and some Japanese-style snacks! This pose is based on an the 1st anniversary celebration illustration!!

​​​​​​​

▼Plus, as usual…

​​​​​​​
▲A round base featuring his emblem!

This is the same as all the previous Touken Ranbu Nendoroids, making them look great when displayed together!

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

Mikazuki Munechika: Awakened Ver. (Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Thanks to everyone who tuned into today’s ORANGE ROUGE live stream! Today I’m going to be taking a look at the 1/8th scale…
Mikazuki Munechika: Awakened Ver.!

From the popular browser and smartphone game “Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-” comes a 1/8th scale figure of Mikazuki Munechika based on his “Awakened” appearance.

The powerful impact of his pose together with the gorgeous details of his outfit have all been captured in careful detail, with the intricate golden patterns woven into his dark blue kimono faithfully included on the figure. The vivid gradient of the kimono as also been preserved to fully capture Mikazuki’s charm, and can be enjoyed from any angle you please. Mikazuki Munechika is said to be the most beautiful of the Five Great Swords, so be sure to add his beauty to your collection!

“A good fight. Time to take it seriously.”

The most beautiful of the Five Great Swords, Mikazuki Munechika is back once again as a 1/8th scale figure, this time in his “Awakened” version!

The figure was shown as a prototype back during the 2017 Winter Wonder Festival, and now it is finally ready to go up for preorder! ヽ(*´Д`*)ノ

This is how he looks from the back!

The twist in his hips and the movement of the outfit together with the twist have all been captured beautifully! (∩・∀・)∩

Just like the previously released Mikazuki Munechika, this version also includes the intricate patterns and prints of the outfit!

This design is easily one of the most detailed designs that our manufacturing team have ever had to deal with, but it comes out looking so beautiful and the way the light reflects against it brings out the glossy look o the fabric, as well as the creases that form from the dynamic poses! ((´д`●))三((●´д`))

Displayed with the previously released Mikazuki Munechika!

▲ Left: Mikazuki Munechika (Released October 2016)
Right: Mikazuki Munechika: Awakened Ver. (Base Is Temporary)

The contrast between “Still” and “Dynamic”!

This time around the figure is based on Mikazuki’s Awakened appearance that he takes when unleashing a powerful attack in combat! The composed and confident look on his face captures his gallant character so beautifully!

The dirt and tears in his outfit from the battle have also been preserved on the figure!

▲ The “dirty” look has been captured so perfectly!

The amount of dirt and tears of the outfit on areas that were never visible on the original illustration have all been carefully considered based on the front appearance!

The way the tears and dirt have been included on the figure establish the situation and tell a story as to how the fight has gone down!

▲The cut into his chest and the tear in his outfit where he was cut… the scrapes on his arm… just looking at them make you realise how heated the battle has been!

While I love figures for their artistic beauty, I also love having them set in a situation like this so that you can think about their character and background as you look at the beautiful figure! ★

Mikazuki Munechika: Awakened Ver. has been sculpted by Sato!

This is the same sculptor that has brought us previous Touken Ranbu scale figures such as Yamatonokami Yasusada and Okurikara! (●‘∀‘●)ノ”

Okurikara –

⇒ You can see more Touken Ranbu Products over here!

This figure is rather different to the previous Touken Ranbu scale figures as the Awakening version is a more focused on a look in combat, but there is still a very refined and graceful look to Mikazuki’s stance and sculpt!

They often say that a good sword fight is just as beautiful as a dance, but looking at this figure was the first time that I thought that may actually be true!

The stance, the way his clothes flow around him, and the movement captured in his feet all show off his fighting prowess! The details on the accessories of his outfit together with his hair blowing in the wind as he moves around are also all so perfect!! 

The figure captures both the rough side of combat together with the elegance of Mikazuki for beautiful contrast with such amazing attention to detail!!

Below are some of the points of the figure that really stood out to me!

Feet 

The tips of his toes clearly have so much strength put into them capturing the tension of the battle and also causing the tabi to come with a very uneven sculpt. The hakama he is wearing also has a beautifully soft look to it as it swirls around with his motion! 

Also note the motion and details included on the tassels!

– From the Back– 

As I had just mentioned, the motion of the tassels is incredible, and from the back they look even more amazing as they flick around together with the flapping motion of the blue flap.

If you look close you’ll even notice that the reverse side of the flap even has the pattern and the back-stitching of the tassels! One of the best things about figures is that you can see all the areas that were never visible on the original illustration – simply pick the any angle you wish!!

▲ The fabric at the front hos his neck also has the pattern!

Body 

The bare skin Mikazuki is showing from his right shoulder down to his waist looks so impressive in so many different ways! Just look at those abs and pectoral muscles! (/ω\)

Mikazuki may be known as a character that takes things at his own pace, but looking at this figure you can certainly see he is ready to fight with the best of the sword boys!

Also note the thickness of his gloves! You can see the point the end at his elbows there is a sudden drop in thickness to reveal his toned arms!

▲I can just imagine his combat lines playing through my head! 

– Facial Expression 

Last but not least: His gallant facial expression!

Those sharp eyes and shouting mouth with his lips and teeth all sculpted so amazingly!! It’s certainly a different impression to the previous Mikazuki, but still a very important part of his character!! I’m so glad I can look at it so close up now!! (`;ω;´)

Also note those beautiful crescent moons in his pupils!! Looking right into his eyes like this is probably my favorite way to look at the figure!! ♡

There is really far too much to look at with a figure like this! I hope I managed to capture at least most of his charm for everyone! Be sure to take a nice close look from all sorts of different angles once he joins your collection!

A figure featuring an amazing blend of intensity and elegance!
Mikazuki Munechika: Awakened Ver.!

He’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!!

In addition, orders from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a Mikazuki Munechika Sword Charm: Awakened Ver. as a bonus!


Be sure to consider it when preordering!

PLEASE NOTE: REGARDING THE SWORD GUARD

*The photos on this blog were taken before this section of the figure was corrected. The final version will have this area correctly sculpted and painted gold.
