Nendoroid Ranka Lee


Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

“Ryuusei ni matagatte anata ni kyuukouka~ ♪ ah ah~ ♪”

One of my favorite Ranka songs! The lyrics mean “I’ll climb onto a meteor and swoop down to you”… although I don’t think I’d ever be able to do that, I can’t even take roller coasters, a meteor would be impossible!

Today I’m going to be taking a look at a figure that is scheduled to ship out from GSC on the 12th November…

Nendoroid Ranka Lee! ♪

Following on from Sheryl Nome comes another intergalactic songstress!
(She’s also the rather special Nendoroid #350!)

This is how the packaging looks!

The special base really stands out on a quick glimpse!

Simply attach the connector piece onto the bottom and it connects into a normal Nendoroid stand with ease!

Having the stage stand really brings out the atmosphere! (*´▽`*)

Sheryl comes with a similar base, and this is how they look displayed together!

But let’s take a closer look at the Nendoroid itself…

In particular, pay close attention to her outfit! ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ

The ribbons all over her outfit have all been included with adorable detail! Another thing I love about this outfit is that is allows you to see…

Her bellybutton!! ♡

The edges of her top are all upturned allowing for a nice little peek at her cute tummy! It’s little details like this that I love to see on my Nendoroids! They’re important! Super important!! ♥

Her skirt is also fluttering up in a rather dynamic way!

At certain angles it might even get to the point that she is shows a little more than she means too… I’m sure all you gentlemen would never pose her like that though!

I actually really love the cute shape of her skirt! It’s also cute from the back! ♪

The orange bow in her hair has also been faithfully included in Nendoroid size! ♪

Various arm parts are included for all sorts of poses as well! I posed her as if she was pointing the microphone out to hear the voices of all her fans!! (`・ω・´)

The famous “Everyone embrace each other! To the far end of of the Galaxy!” pose is also possible! ☆

Alternatively you can try a slightly more upset look!

The shouting expression can also be used to pose her singing her heart out! ♪

There are all sorts of different options for you to try! ヽ(●´∀`)○´∀`)ノ

Pose her together with Nendoroid Sheryl Nome and recreate the galactic stage right on your desk!! ♡

Nendoroid Ranka Lee!

She’ll be shipping out from GSC on the 12th November!!

If you’re a Macross fan, also don’t forget that the Macross Heroine Set is currently in production!

I’ll let everyone know as soon as they’re ready for release! (`・ω・´)

Nendoroid Sheryl Nome

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today is not only Friday the 13th, but also the birthday of two famous twin plumbers! Not only that but it’s also my 30th blog update!

I’ll be making use of this special day to take a look at a Nendoroid who will be shipped out from GSC on the 18th September…

Nendoroid Sheryl Nome!

Ah… I feel like listening to her songs already!!

It’s also strangely appropriate that the 30th blog update would be Sheryl…

As she is Nendoroid #330!! ♡
I made sure she would be here for today! (・ω<)

She comes with both left and right bent legs, so I made use of them to create a makeshift sitting pose! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

The big ribbon on her back even features ball joints for easy posing!

Even as a Nendoroid she has a sexy air about her!! (*´Д`)

Her shiny earrings have been faithfully recreated in Nendoroid size! Not to mention her beautiful long hair…! I can only imagine that it smells fantastic! (゚∀゚)

Her shouting expression really shows off her power as a singer!

I can’t wait to display her together with Nendoroid Ranka Lee and recreate the ‘Lion’ opening theme!! Unfortunately Nendoroid Ranka’s prototype was being worked on, so she wasn’t in the offices for a photo session… (´;ω;`)ブワッ

(θωθ). 。0 (I wonder what Ranka’s up to…)

Let’s see if we can find someone to answer that for us…!
Someone like Tsukki-senpai from the manufacturing team!

*Manufacturing Team Summon: Tsukki-senpai*

(・∀・) “Ranka-chan is about 80% of the way through the manufacturing process!”

Ooh! 80%! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)
…what exactly does that mean though?

(・∀・) “The sculpting changes are all complete, and we’re moving onto the details of her expressions.

Ooh! I cant wait to see her final product version! ε=(。・д・。)

(・∀・) “Ranka also comes with stage parts, so posing the two Macross F girls together should look great!”

That’s right! They both comes with stage parts! Let’s take a look!

The stage part starts off as two separate parts in the box! (。・ω・)ノ゙

You simply need to connect the smaller part into the bottom of the stage!

That smaller part can then be connected to the normal Nendoroid stand to complete the stage stand! As you might expect, she looks amazing up on stage! ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ

Get your very own Sheryl to perform on stage right in front of you! ♥

Nendoroid Sheryl Nome!

She is scheduled to ship out from GSC on the 18th September!
