Nendoroid Petite: Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- 1st Squad

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Thanks to everyone who just watched the live broadcast! I hope you enjoyed it!! Now I’m going to be taking a closer look at each of the sword boys in ORANGE ROUGE’s latest product…

Nendoroid Petite:
Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- 1st Squad!

From the popular browser game ‘Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- comes a set of six cute and small articulated Nendoroid Petite figures! The set features the five starter swords Kashu Kiyomitsu, Kasen Kanesada, Yamanbagiri Kunihiro, Hachisuka Kotetsu, Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki as well as Yamatonokami Yasusada!Each of the characters keeps their unique personality and style, even when shrunk down into a size even smaller than normal Nendoroids! Recreate your squad in adorable size!!

Apologies for the long wait since WonFes! (´□`。) 

The Touken characters have been shrunk down to an even smaller size than standard Nendoroids to the approx. 65mm high Nendoroid Petite series! This first set contains six different characters including Kashu Kiyomitsu, Kasen Kanesada, Yamanbagiri Kunihiro, Hachisuka Kotetsu, Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki and Yamatonokami Yasusada

Even though they are so very small, I’m sure you can see that the attention to detail on areas such as the intricate outfits, accessories and the lovely flow of each character’s hair is absolutely fantastic!! ♡

They look just as good from the back as well! (σ・∀・)σ

The different outfits and hairstyles of each character have all been captured so effectively even from the back which isn’t even visible in the original illustrations!! Each and every detail has also been polished to perfection to ensure a set of figures that fans will be proud to add to their collections! ★

Let’s take a closer look at them one-by-one!

– Kashu Kiyomitsu –

Give him all the love he desires!!

Even his diamond earrings have been kept in detail on the Nendoroid Petite! Also note the adorable little mole by his mouth!! (/ω\)

– Kasen Kanesada –

His elegance has been preserved in Nendoroid Petite size!! 

Note the way his outfit flows around him, gently fluttering about!! The amount of different colors used is also incredible for a Nendoroid Petite – even the back of his cape features a different color! ☆

– Yamanbagiri Kunihiro – 

The hood over his head and the torn look at the bottom is lovely! ♪

He looks ready for a fight! The area on the right hidden beneath the cape is also faithfully sculpted and painted! Be sure to take a closer look once he joins your collection!!

– Hachisuka Kotetsu –

His golden armor and accessories around his hips faithfully preserve his graceful and noble appearance! (/ω\)

The shiny gold appearance will be kept even for the final product! Worry not!

– Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki –

An expression that captures his frank and straightforward personality!

The spiky hairstyle and the unique look of his outfit from the top to the bottom have all been faithfully sculpted! You can even see the gun he keeps at his hips as an alternate weapon! The manly outfit looks so amazing!!

– Yamatonokami Yasusada –

This gentle smile makes it so hard to picture him saying his combat lines!!

The armor around his torso has shiny paintwork to differentiate it from the rest of his outfit! Lovely! ♡

Each of them is overflowing with amazing detail!!

Remember that each of these figures stands just 65mm in height!  (。・ω・)ノ゙

– Compared with an iPhone 6 –

△ The iPhone 6 is around double the height of them!

– Compared to a Nendoroid –

△ Displayed with my Nendoroid Kashu with painted nails!
△ Nendoroids are about 100mm tall, making quite a big size difference!

Nendoroid Petites really are pretty much the ideal size to sit in the palm of your hand like so! ♪

△ The final products will have a standard Nendoroid Petite base and stand! ♪

Anyway, as mentioned on the live broadcast these figures are a little different to standard Nendoroid Petite sales, so take note!

① This item will initially be exclusive at the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP with limited stock.

Should the demand be high enough, we will announce another batch of orders that will be sold at standard retailers as well, but orders in the second batch will be delivered at a later date to the first batch. In other words, order early if you don’t want to miss out on the first release!

② Orders from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will be for a full box set only

Singles will not be for sale initially. A box set contains six figures.

Nendoroid Misaka

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Whenever I’m at events I often make use of Multiple Shadow Clone Jutsu to get around everywhere at once… but since watching the new Railgun series I’m quite worried that I might have doppelgangers out there that I can’t control!

With that said, today I’ll be taking a look at a doppelganger just like that!

Nendoroid Misaka!!

From the anime series ‘Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S’ comes a Nendoroid of one of Mikoto Misaka’s clones. She comes with three expressions including her standard blank expression, an interested expression and a chibi expression. The goggles she wears are also included, and can be worn on either her forehead or over her eyes. Other optional parts include a fully detailed assault rifle and electricity effect parts for combat scenes.

The kitten that appeared when she first met Mikoto, as well as a rolled up skirt part to display the kitten in are also included! A Gekota badge is even included to place on her uniform! This Misaka may be a clone, but there are still many unique elements to her for fans to enjoy!

Following on from Nendoroid Mikoto Misaka and Nendoroid Kuroko Shirai comes a Nendoroid of one of Mikoto’s clones or ‘sisters’! ♪

She comes with both an assault rifle and electricity effect parts! (`・ω・´)

The spiraling electric effect parts are placed on her arm, making her look charged and ready for combat!

The goggles can either be worn over her eyes or placed on her forehead – an alternate front hair part is included for the latter!

She also comes with three different expressions including her standard blank expression, an interested expression and a chibi expression. ☆

Hmm… what’s this she’s holding…?
Could it be….!! <●> <●>

A Nendoroid-sized Gekota tin badge! This is included as a sticker with the product. Each Misaka will come with four of the sticker! ♪

Let’s try it on!

Combined with the chibi face it makes her look embarrassed to be wearing it! So cute!! It was #9982’s final present… a gift to be remembered! (´・ω・`)

Skirt parts and a black kitty are also included ro create the scene where the clone first meets the real Mikoto!

Aahh… it’s so cute!!! (*´Д`)

I can also picture a number of other uses for these skirt parts… even just combining them with the chibi expression creates quite an interesting scene for the shy Misaka!! ☆

The slight blush on her cheeks says everything…!

Plus the hand parts for holding up the skirt can be used without the alternate skirt, allowing for poses like this one!

Kitty pose complete!! (ΦωΦ)…!

The various parts let you recreate various clones from the series!

Nendoroid Misaka!

She’ll be up on the GSC Website from tomorrow with purchase instructions!

The Hobby Maker Joint Figure Exhibition & WonHobby 18 Mini Exhibition Notice!

Hello! How is everyone today?

I’ve been sticking to air conditioned rooms as much as possible recently… I can’t take this Summer heat…

But anyway, last weekend was the Hobby Maker Joint Product Exhibition at the Akihabara UDX building so let’s see what was going on at the event!! Here you can see Arimuu from the sales team who was manning the reception desk!

As usual we had a load of different companies taking part in the event! Let me take this opportunity to extend a big thank you to all of them! Good Smile and Max Factory also had a number of items on display with a focus on the recent items that were on display at WonFes! (゚∀゚*)ノ

Here we have GSC & Max Factory’s ‘Attack on Titan’ diorama corner – definitely one of the showpieces of the event! ★

Many of you have probably already seen the diorama as it was also on display at WonFes – the amount of detail that went into it is very impressive!!

But now for something a little different!
I’m going to take a look at some of the products from other companies that I thought looked interesting!

Let me start off with other companies distributed by Good Smile! ♪
From GSR we have the incredibly detailed Lamborghini Countach L400! ☆

Next up we have FREEing’s Homura Akemi: Yukata Ver. – ready to make you wish you were some candy floss!

WING’s Purple Heart showing off her cute and cool side as the main character from Hyperdimension Neptunia! ☆

Gift’s long-awaited Hayate Yagami: Swimsuit Ver., completing the magical girl trio!

Even smaller than before but just as cute, Fate/Zero is joining the Petanko Mini! Series! ☆

We also have Max Factory’s Benmaru, who has stolen my heart and won’t give it back! She’s simply stunning!!

Even though she hasn’t been painted, I already want her!! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ
Just look at those beautiful long legs and dainty feet!

Moving on, let’s take a look at some of the figures from unrelated companies that caught my eye! Firstly we have the almighty battleship, Mighty Gou from Kenelephant!

From Movic we have the Color Collection: Uta no Prince-sama – ShiningAllStarVer!

It won’t be long before you can take home all of these Princes home with you! I must also add that the Kuroko no Basuke figures below the princes also look lovely!

From Medicom Toy we have Real Action Heroes: Homura Akemi! She comes with a load of weapons to play around with as well!
goodsmile company Mikatan's Blog English Version
From WAVE: Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi and Azusa Azuki!

When I first saw Tsukiko-chan on display I think I became the ‘Hentai-san’ she speaks of so very often…:P

From PLATZ we have a figure set featuring each team from Girls und Panzer!

Each character will need such different paintwork – a great test of painting skills as well as the love for the characters!! (*´Д`)=з

cafereo is bringing us the ‘Super High School Level Plushie #01: Makoto Naegi’!

I guess that seen this is #01, we can expect more of the characters to be coming up soon as well!

From SOL INTERNATIONAL we have Kyuubei Yagyuu!

The unstoppable whirlwind! Just look at her lovely toes! (〃∇〃)

It was an honor to show all these lovely figures on the blog! There were so many other interesting figures and goodies on display as well, but I unfortunately just don’t have the time to show everything!

Both WonFes and the joint exhibition have come to an end now…
