The Eccentric Family 2 Capsule Toys

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I used to work part-time at the hotel used in fhána’s “Moon River” music video. It was my very first part-time job as a student so it really brings back memories!

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

The Eccentric Family 2 Capsule Toys!★

From the anime series The Eccentric Family 2 comes a set of the mascots of the Shimogamo brothers that will also help out around your desk!! The set includes 5 different items including a Yaichiro paperclip holder, a Yajiro item tray, a Yasaburo pen stand, a Yasaburo hanging mascot as well as a Yashiro smartphone stand. Collect them all and show off the eccentric family on your desk!

* This product is sold as a capsule toy only.
* This product will be available prior to release at the Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair 2017 taking place from the 16th to the 17th September.

“An interesting thing is a good thing!”

The cute animal brothers have been converted into cute miniature figures that can also help out around your desk! Other than the previously revealed Yasaburo pen stand, today’s blog will be the first look at their final prototypes!

Let’s first see how they look from the back!

Their fluffy, round forms have been captured perfectly!

They are all around palm-size but even so are quite large for miniature figures!

▲ Approximately 5cm in height! (`・ω・´)ゞ

▲ They are more than cute enough to just display as figures!

The size does differ between characters slightly, but they are definitely on the larger size for capsule toys!

▲ Yajiro is in some water surrounded by coins! ♪

Let’s take a closer look at each of them!

Yaichiro –

▲A serious yet still adorable expression!

● Usage: Paperclip Holder 

* All figures come with the round base you can see Yaichiro standing on.

Yajiro –

▲ I love the puffy look of his froggy hands! ☆

● Usage: Item Tray

Yasaburo –

▲ This tail reminds me of these tail-shaped treats! *nom* (๑´ㅂ`๑) *nom*

● Usage: Pen Stand 

Yasaburo –

▲ You can also enjoy him prancing forward! ♡

● Usage: Hanging Mascot

Yashiro –

▲ The upward glance is so adorable!

● Usage: Smartphone Stand

As you can see, the figures are not only cute to have on display but also serve various different purposes! ヽ(*´∀`)ノ

Nendoroid Daichi Sawamura (Haikyu!!)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I recently have an uncontrollable urge to eat ramen! I’m generally more of a tonkotsu ramen person, but sometimes I’ll go for the more lightly flavored shoyu ramen.

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Nendoroid Daichi Sawamura! ★

From the popular volleyball manga series with an equally popular anime, ‘Haikyu!!’, comes a Nendoroid of the Karasuno High School Volleyball Club’s captain and reliable receiver – Daichi Sawamura! He comes with three face plates including a standard expression, a serious expression for when he is in a match as well as the malicious smile he had when he shook hands with Nekoma High’s volleyball team’s captain Kuroo.

The Nendoroid allows you to recreate a number of memorable scenes from the series and also comes with a volleyball as well as a special base made in the image of a volleyball court. He also comes with the Karasuno High School Volleyball Club Support Flag that reads “Jump!”. Be sure to display him with the previously released characters in the series and enjoy all sorts of different situations in Nendoroid size!

“We’ll never win if we don’t believe we can.”

The reliable captain of the Karasuno High School Volleyball Club who always keeps the teams spirits up, Daichi Sawamura is joining the adorable Nendoroid series! He is in fact the 13th Nendoroid to be released!!

⇒ HAIKYU! PRODUCTS

But let’s get back to Daichi-san!

Like most of the Nendoroids in the series so far he is sculpted wearing his volleyball uniform, but as he is the captain he also comes with his sports jersey with the school symbol to hang on his shoulders! (∩・∀・)∩

▲ The two guardians of the Karasuno High School Volleyball Club

Note that all the previously released team captains have also comes with the jersey over their shoulders: Nendoroid Toru Oikawa, Nendoroid Tetsuro Kuroo and Nendoroid Kotaro Bokuto!

This is how he looks from the back!

▲ The sleeves blowing behind him are perfect!

Moving on, let’s take a look at his face plates!

Along with the gallant smile above he comes with two other options! The first of which is a serious expression which is perfect for displaying him during a match! ε- (´ー`*)

Carefully eyeing the ball to ensure he hits it just right! He does look like he is enjoying himself though! Plus as you may have noticed he comes with a squatting lower body which allows you to display him receiving the ball with all his strength!

If we take a look from behind…

You can get a little peek at his back!

The figure stands just 10cm in height but the soft appearance of uniform as it moves around to reveal his back has been faithfully included!

The confident expression together with his crossed-arm pose also makes for a very nice display!

▲Somehow he seems cuter when you look down from a higher angle!

You’ll also notice that as usual he comes with a special rectangular  volleyball court case as well as a volleyball for in-match scenes, but that’s not all!

He also comes with a Karasuno High School Volleyball Club Support Flag!

A lovely addition by the figure’s planner, Moe-P!

The flag ready to cheer his team to victory has been beautifully sculpted to give it that cloth-like appearance! The kanji reads “Tobe” which can mean both “Jump” and “Fly” – jump high and fly to victory! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

But anyway, let’s move on to this third and final face plate!

A Malicious Smile!

This is perfect to recreate the hand-shaking scene with Kuroo!  They may look like they are smiling but you can feel the tension between the captains… just look at the tense mark on his hand!

But at the same time if you pose him with this expression and his own team mates it can easily be taken as just a normal smiling face!

▲ Fist Bump! ☆

Recreate your favorite scenes and even create your own situations in Nendoroid size!

Be sure to add the reliable spiker to your collection!
