Futaba Sakura (Persona 5)

Hello everyone! Suwabe (@gsc_suwabe) from the Corporate Planning Division here!

I can’t imagine what it must be like to be smart enough with computers to be a hacker! Back when I was in high school I had almost no connection to computers whatsoever! (Nowadays it seems pretty much impossible to not use them!)

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at Phat! Company’s…
Futaba Sakura!

“Risking our lives to stop rotten adults!
That’s why we’re Phantom Thieves!”

From the role-playing game ‘Persona 5’ comes a 1/7th scale figure of the genius hacker who joins the Phantom Thieves – Futaba Sakura! She has been sculpted in careful detail wearing her winter jacket. The figure comes with interchangeable parts which allow you to pose her with the jacket removed, her smartphone in one hand with the other holding Morgana in front of her. Simply select the pose you prefer for your collection!

Manufacturer: Phat! Company
Category: 1/7th Scale Figure
Release Date: 2017/12
Price: ¥12,000 (Before Tax)
Sculptor: Mitsuru Saito (Phat!)
Paintwork: Sakura

Futaba Sakura from Persona 5 has been transformed into a lovely 1/7th scale figure in a rather simple pose based on her illustration from the game! Her iconic headphones and jacket, elegant legs and contrasting tough-looking boots all come together to capture her perfectly!

Not to mention that sidelong glance!

If you match up the angle of her glance to the front you can pose her exactly as she looked in the profile illustration, but if you instead look at her head-on you can enjoy this slightly sidelong glance as if she is avoiding looking into your eyes!! A quick change in angle can create a completely different experience in the world of figures!!!

The creation of the figure was also closely supervised by Persona 5’s character designer, Shigenori Soejima!

Just look at the lovely fluffy part of her jacket! I want to feel it!!! (*´ω`*)

Caution: While jacket may appear fluffy, it is not, in fact, fluffy. It is hard, like the rest of the figure.

Another thing to note about the jacket is the detail put into the  sculpt of the strings and creases! If you look from the right angle you’ll also notice that her lips are not just painted on but are sculpted to stick out a little to faithfully capture the slight duck-face pose! ヽ(´∀`。)ノ・゚

AKG Headphones! ☆ 

You can see they are official goods thanks to the high quality and AKG logo at the back! You can also see that each and every strand of her hair has been carefully considered with this sculpt making the hair look so lovely and silky!

▼Scroll up and down to enjoy these legs!

Look at her thighs, then the boots, thighs, boots, thighs,  boots… It’s Neverending Happiness!!

The bare skin of her thighs looks so very soft and touchable as you would expect from a beautiful young girl… compared to her tough, stylish looking boots makes for such a wonderful contrast!

But there is still more to this figure as she comes with some interchangeable parts which let you display her with….

\ Morgana! /

A quick switch of parts lets you pose her with Morgana in one arm! Lucky Kitty!

It also switches her into a pose without the jacket and with her smartphone in her other hand! Thanks to the jacket being removed you also get special access to some previously hidden areas!!

The lacing of her short pants is one thing…

▲ Morgana’s tail is also rather cute! ♡

…but no jacket also lets you see her cute little bottom!

That bottom looks very fit for someone who spends most of her time at home! Simply select the pose that you think suits her better! (*´ω`*)

Phat!’s 1/7th Scale Figure

Nendoroid Belle (Disney’s Beauty and the Beast)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

My craving to go to Disneyland has recently been on the rise. Every single time I visit I have to go and watch PhilharMagic!! I love it!!

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

From Disney’s animated feature film “Beauty and the Beast” comes a Nendoroid of Belle! She comes with two different face plates that both capture her personality and allow for all sorts of cute and fun poses!

The figure has been sculpted wearing the memorable yellow dress from the ballroom scene, which has been carefully converted into Nendoroid size and painted with great attention to detail. Combined with the two different face plates, the Nendoroid allows fans to create various different situations in Nendoroid size.

Optional parts include both Mrs. Potts and Chip, as well as the enchanted rose and the magic mirror that showed the Beast. A clear sheet featuring the Beast is also included together with a stand to display beside her. Be sure to add this adorable Disney Princess to your collection!

The Disney Princess who wished for adventure like those in her beloved books.

⇒ PRODUCT DETAILS

 

With the recent live action film, “Beauty and the Beast” is as popular as ever, and now the classic animated version of Belle is even getting an adorable Nendoroid figure!!

Belle is one of my favorite Disney Princesses so I was really excited to hear she would be transformed into a Nendoroid!! She has that gentle Princess touch but also has the charming aspect of being a daydreamer!

Belle is one of many Disney and Pixar Nendoroids that were announced during the 2017 Winter Wonder Festival! There are still many more characters coming to join her! ★

▼Upcoming Nendoroids (No Specific Order)

Ariel
Rapunzel
Tinker Bell
Jack Skellington
Jack Sparrow
Winnie-the-Pooh
Woody
Buzz
Mike & Boo
Sulley & Boo

 

But anyway, let’s get back to Belle!♪

Belle has her hair tied up in a mature yet cute style, and her lovely yellow dress has many drapes that have been carefully converted into Nendoroid size!

She comes with an interchangeable skirt part which allows you to pose her pinching the end of her dress to recreate this classic pose! (∩・∀・)∩

▲ Even the frills on the inside have been carefully sculpted! ♪

The figure also comes with a lovely selection of accessories and parts to display together with Belle herself! Let’s take a closer look at them one by one!

◆ Mrs. Potts and Chip ◆

The shiny paintwork makes them really look like ceramics!

The wide open eyes also give them both such a cute look! The designs have been slightly altered to better match with the Nendoroid design, but even so just having them beside Belle really helps to bring out the atmosphere of the series!  (*´ェ`*)

◆ Enchanted Rose ◆

My favorite shot! You can pose Belle holding the rose like so!♡

The glass case that holds the enchanted rose in the film is also included, allowing you to instead simply display the rose by her side as a decoration instead!

▲The rose inside the case makes for a very different atmosphere!

◆ Hand Mirror ◆

The dignified looking magical mirror is also included! ☆


▲ The reflective side of the mirror shows Beast!

◆ Beast ◆

Beast is also included on a clear sheet!  (ฅ^・ω・^ ฅ)

He comes with his own little stand to allow you to pose Beauty and the Beast together in Nendoroid size! Even the height difference looks great! I can just picture the ballroom scene in my head…

Be sure to add the beautiful Disney Princess to your collection!

Nendoroid Tracer: Classic Skin Edition (Overwatch)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

It’s starting to warm up here in Japan but it’s still rather chilly for this time of year! I hope the cherry blossoms bloom soon!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Nendoroid Tracer: Classic Skin Edition!

From the globally popular multiplayer first-person shooter ‘Overwatch’ comes a Nendoroid of Tracer! The Nendoroid comes complete with a variety of optional parts to add effects for her abilities, interchangeable bent legs, and hair options that can cover up her eyes to recreate her iconic poses from the game!

Also included are Tracer’s trademark pulse pistols, along with open hand parts to pose her as without her guns, like when she activates her recall ability. Equip her pulse bomb to pose Tracer activating her ultimate ability! The Nendoroid is fully articulated, allowing her to be posed in many different ways, and has been carefully sculpted and tuned to ensure that the joints do not stand out, keeping Tracer’s unique appearance in tact. Be sure to add the first of the Overwatch Nendoroid series to your collection!

“Cheers, love! The cavalry’s here!”

From the multiplayer first-person shooter that has become popular all over the world ‘Overwatch’ comes the first Nendoroid from the series: Tracer!!

When she was announced back in February it was quite the surprise announcement, so I’m sure many fans were quite excited!! (;・`ω・´)

From her trademark orange-tinted goggles to the slightly boyish hair style with its soft and bouncy appearance on top have all been faithfully converted into Nendoroid size! ♪

The details on her outfit have also been carefully sculpted, including the unique open collar area as well as her rolled-up sleeves! There are so many aspects that make her so unique as a Nendoroid!

The difference in textures between the various parts of the figure are reproduced with glossy and matte paints to bring out the shine on certain areas! ☆

Another thing to note is that Nendoroid Tracer is a fully articulated Nendoroid with flexible joints in her elbows, knees and more allowing for all sorts of posing opportunities! ヽ(゚∀゚ヽ 三 ノ゚∀゚)ノ

Perhaps the best thing about this is that even though she is so highly articulated she has also been very carefully sculpted and tuned to ensure that the joints do not stand out but still keep her unique appearance in tact!

Nendoroid Tracer comes with both the lovely innocent smiling face you can see above, while the second is a more relaxed smile which you can see below!
You may have also noticed there are holes on her hands in the photo above – this is in fact so that you can pose her with her hands open while still holding her pulse pistols as if she had just activated her recall ability!!
On that note, she also of course comes complete with her Pulse Pistols! Not only that, but her Pulse Bomb ultimate is also included for even more fun!!
▲ Simply move her around and find a pose you like!

She also comes with effect parts to recreate her blink ability which are not shown in my photos, but you can find them on the official product page!

Another fun little feature is that her front hair is attached with a joint which means…

You can pose her blowing her hair out of her eyes like she does in her heroic highlight intro! The face plate with her mouth in a blowing position is also included! ♥

The sculpt of her lips is quite different to most Nendoroids – it has a more defined appearance to better suit the original design! (●‘∀‘●)ノ”

▲ The eyes are made to look up at her hair giving her a rather cute upward glance! (∩・∀・)∩

We also made a quick promotional video to show her off from a few more angles, so be sure to take a look!

Whether you want to enjoy her as an action figure or simply display her in your collection as a lovely rendition of Tracer, be sure you don’t miss out on the first of the Overwatch Nendoroids! ★
Nendoroid Tracer: Classic Skin Edition!

She is currently up for preorder!
