Steiff Pikachu

Pikachu is joining the Steiff line-up!! ♪

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Steiff Pikachu!♡

From ‘Pokémon’ comes a plush doll of Pikachu made by the German company known worldwide for their high quality teddy bears, Steiff! Pikachu is made from the finest natural mohair which is wonderful to the touch, creating a plush doll that not only looks amazing but is also lovely to feel as it sits by your side.

Each Steiff Pikachu will be carefully hand-made, with a first release of exactly 1000 units to be released in Japan only. Experience the highest quality Pikachu plush ever!


From the series loved all around the world ‘Pokémon’ comes a Steiff plush toy of the pokémon that still manages to capture the hearts of adults and children alike – Pikachu!!

From the black tips of his ears to the red circles on his cheeks – Pikachu looks adorable as ever! Just look at those cute eyes as well!! Now you can grab your very own Pikachu and give him a big hug whenever you feel the need to be relaxed!

From the back you can get a good look at his pointy tail as well as the brown stripes! Plus as an original Steiff product the quality is impeccable and ready to last a lifetime! ♪

Let’s have a quick reminder about the ‘Steiff‘ brand for those who don’t know about them! (・∀・)

Since 1880, Steiff has been making plush toys and collectibles that set the world standard for quality. Made from only the finest materials — fabrics such as mohair, alpaca, cotton velvet, and woven fur — each Steiff animal is meticulously hand-sewn and hand-finished by our staff of talented artisans in Giengen, Germany. The company is perhaps best-known for its bears — Steiff invented the Teddy bear in 1902. Since the firm was founded by Margarete Steiff in 1880, more than 16,000 different designs for animals have been created.

In other words, they are the teddy bear pioneers that still make use of the traditional methods for making their products which allow for the best of quality! GSC has previously worked with them in the past to release the Steiff  x Hatsune Miku teddy bear as well! ♪

Each and every Steiff collectible is carefully hand-sewn by the talented Steiff artisans in Germany!

△ The chest tag features a familiar silhouette of Pikachu from the side!

Each of Steiff collectablies also features the Steiff Ear Tag and Steiff “Button in Ear” – a worldwide trademark of unmistakable quality! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

△ It is also of course included on Pikachu!

The tags on normal Steiff bears are yellow with red text, but limited edition ‘Collector’ products such as this Pikachu which is planned to have only 1000 units available in Japan instead come with a white tag with red text! The tag also shows the product number, year of production and serial number for the product! ( ・ㅂ・)و

This Pikachu is approximately 280mm in height! This is how he looks compared with a Nendoroid! (●´ω`●)

△ Displayed together with Nendoroid Red! ★

This is how he looks sitting on someone’s lap!

△ He really is the perfect size for hugs!!

A Pikachu hand-made and filled with love! Give him a good home!!

AGF 2013 (animate girls festival)


Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I recently tried to remember that last ladylike thing I bought, but nothing except soy milk crackers really came to mind… I do think soy milk is a more ladylike choice though!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at some of the goodies on sale at the ‘animate girls festival 2013’ taking place this weekend! ♪

animate girls festival 2013
Date: 2nd November – 3rd November 2013.
Time: 10:00 – 17:00. Doors Close at 16:30. (JST)
Place: Ikebukuro Sunshine City
World Import Mart 4th Floor A Hall
Culture Hall 4th Floor B Hall & 2nd Floor D Hall.
Official Site:
GSC Booth: Yellow AREA: Culture Hall 2nd Floor D Hall.

Event Details:

This is actually the first time that GSC has taken part in this event! Although in the past we did borrow a part of Gift’s booth to display some figures! ♪

You can see GIFT’s AGF information this time around of their official website: It’s filled with goods from popular series including ‘DIABOLIK LOVERS’ and ‘AMNESIA’! ♡

Anyway, let’s move onto the GSC sales information! First up are some goodies from ‘wooser’s hand-to-mouth life!’ ♪

First up we have a prerelease item… Not-so-Blessed wooser Charm of Love! It seems wooser finally believes himself to be a deity!

Some recently released items including the ‘wooser Metal Strap A & B’ will also be available, along with various other goodies!

From the Character Vocal Series we have the Vocaloid Earphone Accessories and the most recent Nendoroid Petites! ♪

Finally, we also have various Attack on Titan goods!

I want the Survey Corps seals and pings! The wings of freedom!! I personally also like the way the masking tape looks! (*´▽`*)

The latest rubber accessories will also be prereleased at AGF! ♪

Picktam! Attack on Titan: Part 1! ♡

If you buy a complete box at the event you’ll receive a bonus exchangeable expression for use on any character! (Top right on the above image!) I got my hands on some samples so let me take a closer look at them! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

I was told I could open up one of the boxes… so without further ado…!

Picktam! is a set of trading rubber straps, so you don’t know which character you’ll get until the box is open! I wonder who I’ll get?!


Jean Kirschtein! ♪

Each Picktam! includes a removable hook strap!

Each strap also allows you to switch expressions around! ★

Each Picktam! consists of a flippable expression and hair parts, which can easily we swapped around! First you need to remove the hook…

Then you lift up the pull the hair part upwards…

I felt bad showing Jean without his hair, so I’ll use this example instead! (;・∀・)

Just like on the image above, you remove the hair and face and simply swap the face around for an alternate expression!

Here is how Jean looks with his alternate expression!

At the same time I decided to compare his size with a Nendoroid Petite Mikudayo… as you can see they’re about the same size! Jean looks a little worried about that Mikudayo…

Here is how the alternate expressions for each of the characters look! (`・ω・´)

Armin’s tightly shut eyes are adorable! There is also a secret character who has already been revealed on the GSC site to be Erwin Smith! His alternate expression hasn’t been shown yet though!! ( -ノェ-)

You can switch parts between characters for some interesting combinations! ♥

Swapping Sasha and Christa’s bodies! ♪

This Christa would surely break off a small piece of the bread and pass the bigger piece to me! On the other side we have a Sasha that seems strangely in tact with her feminine side! Σ(・ω・ノ)ノ!

Plus if you purchase a complete box at the event, a bonus exchangeable expression is included… let’s take a look at it!

An angry Mikasa Ackerman with a tear in her eye! An unusual sight indeed!!

The more serious the characters normally are, the better these silly expressions look on them! Here is the alternate side of the bonus expression…! ♪

Did you ever imagine seeing Levi Heichou with an expression like this?!
Not something you’re ever likely to see in the manga or anime… (゚A゚;)

Eren is using Armin’s body and Levi’s expression! I picked these to pose him looking rather dubious of Levi’s current expression…!

The ability to pick and customize using the different parts is what makes the Picktam series so great!

Have there ever been rubber straps with this much playability before…?!

I’m sure everyone will enjoy creating all sorts of interesting variations! ♥

Today at 20:00JST you can watch a Twitcast at which will be introducing the Picktam! series to everyone!

The twitcast will be by Shuu-chan-senpai and Oono-shi! I’m sure the addition of video will allow them to show much more than I was able to show with just photos, so be sure to take a look! ☆

Finally! I actually managed to sneak into the preparations for AGF a little while ago… here are some photos of the event hall! (`・ω・´)

This is how the GSC booth looks!

The following figures are planned to be on display for everyone who visits!

Nendoroid Eren!

Nendoroid Levi!


* The figure displays are scheduled to begin in the afternoon at the event.

Be sure to stop by the booth if you’re attending the event!☆

Nendoroid Faris Nyannyan

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

The end of this blog features a notice about this years Hatsune Miku Christmas Cake, so be sure to read through to the end if you’re interested! ♪

At the moment we are very busy with Machiasobi, Hobby Show and Halloween preparations! Speaking of Halloween, it’s the perfect time for cosplay… and speaking of cosplay the first thing that comes to mind are maids! ♥

Today I’ll be introducing a very cute maid for Nendoroid collectors…
Nendoroid Faris Nyannyan!! ♡

Super cute! May Queen Nyan-nyan’s #1 maid! ♡

There are just no words to describe how cute she is!

A maid outfit combined with pink hair is one of the most deadly moe combinations in my opinion! Plus she comes with the famous omelet rice from the series! <●><●>

Even the writing in ketchup is faithfully recreated! ♪

But Faris isn’t just cute, she’s also ready to show her skill at Rai-Net Access Battlers!! ♡

You can tell by her expression that she already knows she’s won! ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ

She has bent arms, hands to hold things and even folded arms… there are so many poses for fans to enjoy! Plus her adorable maid outfit is sure to look great on other characters… let’s have a look shall we!

We’ll start off with another character with pink hair… Sheryl Nome!

The Nyan-Nyan pose is so cute, and yet somehow Sheryl still manages to look rather elegant while doing it! But there are more pink haired characters… let’s try the outfit our on Super Sonico-chan!

Sonico has had her very own anime announced! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

I know that there is a slight problem regarding her bust size when using this body, but the combination of the maid clothes and guitar are lovely!

Let’s make the next character with relations to Nitroplus… Akane Tsunemori!

The Yuu-pon expression suits the maid outfit rather nicely!

And finally let’s have yesterday’s star try it on… Kuroki Tomoko!

I literally started crying in the culture festival episode… (´;ω;`)ブワッ

Maid clothes suit you Mokocchi!! You’re adorable!!

But in the end… I do think they suit Faris herself best! ♥

A perfect fit!

Her maid headdress (or Alice-band?) really pulls the outfit together beautifully! There’s definitely something missing without it – which shows how important the smaller parts of figures can be! (σ・∀・)σ

Packed fill of cute and ready to keep you company!♡
Nendoroid Faris Nyannyan!

She’ll be shipping out from GSC around the 8th October! (`・ω・´)
