Nendoroid Hifumi Takimoto (NEW GAME!!)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’m always amazed at the amount of different emoji that exist on the net. Recently my personal favorite is this one: ٩( ᐛ )( ᐖ )۶

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

From the popular anime series with a second season currently being broadcast, “NEW GAME!” (based on the manga by Shoutarou Tokunou serialized in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Carat), comes a Nendoroid of Aoba Suzukaze’s senior at work, Hifumi Takimoto! She comes with three face plates including a glaring expression, a surprised expression as well as a gentle smiling expression.

The Nendoroid includes a selection of accessories including her smartphone, her pet hedgehog Sojiro as well as emoji plates to display beside her to recreate various memorable poses from the series. She also comes with an alternate lower body part to display her sitting down! Be sure to display her with Nendoroid Aoba Suzukaze who has been scheduled for rerelease!

“Smile! Smile! \(*>∀<*)/”

From the popular anime currently airing in Japan, “NEW GAME!!” comes a Nendoroid of the silent member of the game company Eagle Jump: Hifumi Takimoto!


Her standard expression features averted eyes and a slight blush, capturing her shy and timid personality perfectly! ♪

▲ The worried look makes her look so cute!!

Her cellphone is included as an optional part, and it can be paired with the surprised expression in order to recreate this pose! ٩( ᐛ )و

▲ I love the wavy sculpt of her mouth!

Plus she also comes with a very important part for Hifumi to communicate…

A selection of emoji message plates!

There are a total of three different plates for various different situations! The plate above translates to “You can just call me Hifumi” (●‘∀‘●)ノ”♡

▲ A special stand to display the plates at different heights!

Plus her hedgehog, Sojiro is also included! ♪

▲ Sojiro fits nicely into her hands!
Even though he is rather tiny, he still has a spiny back! 

Plus as you may have noticed from the above, she also comes with sitting parts!! (っ’ω’)っ))

▲ The surprised expression matches this expression from Aoba!

You can also create all sorts of original poses between the them!

▲ Even without Aoba, this would make for a very cute pose!

Be sure to add her to your collection!
Nendoroid Hifumi Takimoto!

She is currently up for preorder! ( *¯ ³¯*)

Nendoroid Saya Yamabuki (BanG Dream!)

Nendoroid Poppin’Party: Complete!

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at the final Poppin’Party Nendoroid…
Nendoroid Saya Yamabuki!

From the anime series BanG Dream! comes a Nendoroid of Poppin’Party’s lead drummer, Saya Yamabuki! She comes with three face plates including a standard expression, a cheerful smiling expression as well as a content expression.

Optional parts include her drum set featuring the band logo allowing you to display her performing live, as well as her twin pedal bag allowing you to display her on the way to and from practice. Be sure to display her with the previously announced Poppin’Party Nendoroids and recreate various different situations from the series!

“Welcome to Yamabuki Bakery!”

Poppin’Party’s drummer and someone who will always be willing to listen to Kasumi’s troubles and help out the group – Saya Yamabuki is joining the Nendoroids! ♡

Her  ponytail tied up quite high has been beautifully sculpted! ♪

▲ The ponytail features a joint allowing it to swing left and right! (●‘∀‘●)ノ”

But perhaps the most impressive thing about her Nendoroid is that it comes with a complete, fully detailed drum set!! Just look at the impressive size of the set!!

▲ Even the double pedal on the left has been preserved in Nendoroid size!

On the front of the drums you can see the BanG Dream! logo together with the Pearl Drums logo, which has been included with full permission from the company! ☆

▲ Even in chibi size, the detail makes the drums look very realistic!

This of course means that the Nendoroid Poppin’Party series is now complete!!

Anyway, let’s get back to Saya! ♥

Along with her gentle standard expression above, she also comes with a cheerful winking expression, as well as…

A super cute content expression! ♥

There is something about this expression that makes me feel all relaxed inside! She looks so very happy!! (/ω\)

You can combine this expression with the drum set to display her really enjoying her own performance with the band!! ☆

I imagine that if I was standing in front of her playing the guitar and I looked back to see this expression, I would instantly lose any stress and worry I had and be able to play at my very best!! I’m a little envious of Kasumi!!

Along with the drum set, she also comes with another little accessory…

A Twin Pedal Bag to display her on the way to practise! ♪

This part matches up with all the previous members instrument cases, allowing you to display them all walking along together with their instruments!

Nendoroid Edward Elric (FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST)

Today’s Main Feature!

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at the much-awaited…
Nendoroid Edward Elric!★

From the popular “FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST” series comes a Nendoroid of Edward Elric! He comes with three different face plates including his standard grinning smile, a tough-looking serious expression as well as an angry expression perfect for when anyone calls him short!

He has specially articulated arm parts that allow him to be displayed with his hands together in his classic alchemy pose, and he also comes complete with parts to display his automail right arm revealed, along with parts to switch it out into a blade.

He also comes with alchemy effect parts, a wall part being transmuted out of the ground and a special lower body part that allows him to be displayed crouching down. Enjoy the adorable Nendoroid Edward in your collection!

Nendoroid Alphonse Elric will also be available for preorder soon, so be sure to display the brothers together!

“I’ll show you there’s no comparison between us!”

The youngest State Alchemist in history that became known as the “Fullmetal Alchemist”, Edward Elric is joining the Nendoroids! His fluttering red cape, blond ponytail and confident smile have all been captured in lovely detail! He also comes with alchemy effect parts that connect to his arms to display him just before transmuting something! ★

This was one of the items voted for during the Nendoroid 10th Anniversary Next Nendoroid Survey! Thanks again to everyone who voted!!

Along with the determined smile above, he also comes with two other face plates to bring out different sides of his personality! ((´д`●))三((●´д`))

– Serious Expression 

He looks much more focused with this expression, with a tightly closed mouth showing his tougher side as he stands ready for combat! His iconic braided hair is connected with a joint allowing you to move it around to better match various poses!

He is so small and cute… which leads me onto the next face plate!

Angry Expression 


An expression that just had to be included with Ed! It’s amazing how well this expression translated into Nendoroid form!! ♡

But anyway, let’s move on to the included accessories! First up, he comes with an alternate arm part that reveals his automail arm!

The torn appearance of his jacket as well as the mechanical design of the arm have been sculpted in beautiful detail! ★

But that’s not the only alternate arm part he comes with!

Didn’t I tell you? There is no comparison.

He also comes with an interchangeable arm where his arm has been transmuted into a blade to fight with! (*´∀`)ノ

The automail parts all make use of a metallic paint that bring out that heavy, metallic appearance so effectively! But we’re still not done yet, Ed also comes with parts to show off one of his signature moves…

Crouching Parts + Half-Transmuted Wall!

Note that the bottom of the wall is made with translucent parts to bring out that transmutation effect that really captures the atmosphere of the series! ☆

This is how the pose looks from the side!

It’s more of a half-kneeling pose – the pose that he often took just after clapping his hands together like in the pose from earlier! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

The pose couldn’t be recreated with just standard Nendoroid joints but it was too important not to include, so an entirely separate lower body part and legs are included to pose him this

You can use this same body part and pose him not touching the ground to display him like this…

Ed having a temper tantrum after someone has mistaken his brother for him or called him short!! When the kneeling pose is placed up like this it looks like he is jumping around and kicking in the air! It suits the angry expression so perfectly!!

As you can see you can enjoy all sorts of different sides of the Fullmetal Alchemist with the various included parts and face plates – be sure to add the cute little shorty Nendoroid to your collection!

Nendoroid Edward Elric!

He will be up for preorder from tomorrow!!

In addition, purchases from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a Spiked Bat & Hand Part to hold it as a bonus!!

Order Here:

Be sure to consider it when preordering!! 

Also don’t forget that his brother will also be joining him soon!!
Nendoroid Alphonse Elric!
