Nendoroid Levi

 

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

The figure I planned to review today had his expressions off in China, but they managed to come back just in time!!

Which means although it’s a little bit later than normal… today we’ll be taking a look at ‘mankind’s strongest solder’…

Nendoroid Levi! ♥

From the popular anime series ‘Attack on Titan’ comes the forth character to join the Nendoroid series – mankind’s strongest solider, Levi! He comes with three expressions including his standard expression, a combat expression and a condescending expression. Just like Eren and Mikasa, he also comes with his Vertical Maneuvering Equipment and dual blades to be posed in action – but also comes with reverse backhand grip parts and maneuvering parts specially suited to his unique fighting style! His Scouting Legion cape is also of course included.You can also pose him together with the previously announced Nendoroid Eren Yeager to recreate the famous interrogation scene from the series, as well as with the other characters from the series to fully recreate the Attack on Titan universe in Nendoroid size!

Ooooh!! He’s so cute!
I never thought I’d see such a cute Heichou!!

The blush marks that were seen on his unpainted prototype have been removed, but he’s still adorable none the less! ♪

The must-have Scouting Legion cape is fitted with three separate joint parts, which allows for poses such as this one!

You can also apparently attach it to Mikasa or Eren! ♡

His hairstyle is also shrunk down into Nendoroid size perfectly!

Let’s take a look at the other expressions! ♪

Up until now I’ve only shown the ‘standard’ expression, but he also comes with parts perfect for combat scenes!

His ‘Combat Expression’!! ((((;゚Д゚))))

Just look how determined he looks! I think that line above his eye makes him look even more determined than Eren did…!

(・∀・) “We really tried hard to get this expression looking right!”

We’re joined today by the head planner of Nendoroid Levi – Kyojin!

(・∀・) “We tried to achieve that same ‘sharp glare’ he’s known for in the anime!”

He does look rather threatening! Perhaps even a little TOO scary for me…
(/ω・\;) *peek*

(・∀・) “Ah, also! I recommend these effect parts for combat scenes!”

(・∀・) “We took the image of the spinning Heichou and made it into this!”

Levi could take out any Titan with one quick spinning slash! ♪
Ah! I haven’t shown the most important expression yet! ( ゚д゚)!

(・∀・) “My personal favorite too! The condescending expression!”

Thank you!! I love being looked down upon by you, Heichou!! (*´▽`*)

Let’s try another angle too!!

(・∀・) “Be sure to display him with Eren to recreate the interrogation scene!”

Levi even comes with an alternate kicking leg that matches up with Eren’s lowered head parts perfectly – a complete Nendoroid version of the famous scene! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Personally I’m going to get a Nendoroid More Clip or Suction Stand and display above me somewhere… constantly looking down on me with his condescending expression!! ♥

(・∀・) “There are many different sides to Levi for fans to enjoy with the Nendoroid!”

I look forward to having the apathetic Levi my my side!

Nendoroid Levi!

He’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow, the 25th December!

However… there’s something missing!! I can’t enjoy my cleaning Heichou with this Nendoroid!! (´;ω;`)
<●><●>
*Stares at Kyojin with a sharp glare*

(・∀・) “… I’ll… um… see what can be done! Please stop staring at me like Levi… you’re scaring me!”

(*Just as planned!!*)

And thus, I will be looking forward to cleaning Heichou! (`・ω・´)ノ

Also, as I’m sure most of you already know…!
figma Levi is already up for order! (`・ω・´)

There are no words for how epic he looks…! _:(´ཀ`。」 ∠):_

Along with his standard expression he also comes with a combat expression similar to the Nendoroid!

He also comes with an apathetic, cold expression! (*´Д`)


You can pose him together with figma Eren to recreate the famous scene as above! A scene that can be enjoyed in both figma and Nendoroid form! (゚A゚;)

As soon as I can get my hands on either of these Levis… they will be posed starting down at me from above! Another thing to note is that figma Levi is 5mm shorter than both Eren and Mikasa – it’s the little things that count! ^^

Finally! Today is the final episode of BLAZBLUE ALTER MEMORY, and in commemoration I want to remind everyone about a certain Nendoroid Petite! ♪

Included with the limited edition 6th volume Blu-ray of the series is Nendoroid Petite Mu-12! The Blu-ray goes on sale on the 28th May 2014!

Even as a Nendoroid Petite, she has so much detail put into the sculpting of her bottom!! Definitely worth checking if you’re a fan of the series! ★

More details can be found here: http://blazblue-am.jp/goods/dvd.html

Also, Nendoroid Petite Ragna the Bloodedge is included with the limited first edition of the 5th volume, which is currently up for preorder in stores!

All the autumn anime series are now coming to an end! I look forward to seeing what is coming up in the Winter season, along with seeing how all the series this season end! ε=(。・д・。)

Nendoroid Colossus Titan & Attack Playset

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’m looking for a good ways to cut off some excess weight, but whenever I see newly released candy I can’t help but try it… (ノ)・ω・`(ヾ) *nomnom*

But anyway, today we’re going to be taking a look at a product that is shipping out from GSC today…

Nendoroid Colossus Titan & Attack Playset

The unexpected Nendoroid form of the Colossus Titan is finally being released! This is the start of the still flourishing ‘Attack on Titan’ Nendoroid series! ♪

Let’s start off with a look at the packaging!

It’s rather large…!

The Titan peering over from the top of the box was a wonderful addition! ★

Next let’s take a closer look at the blister pack! ♪

As you’d expect from the ‘Playset’ product name, this Nendoroid comes with various extra goodies as well as the Colossus Titan himself!

His stand is made to look like a miniature Shiganshina District!

All of the included parts are not attached to the stand itself, so you really have the freedom to arrange them, or place them absolutely anywhere you like! ♪

Alright then, let’s have the Titan break open the wall quick…

An alternate wall part with the center broken in is included!

The hole allows for all the smaller titans to break into the city, while the little people fight back – with Vertical Maneuvering Devices that include effect parts and all – they really look like they’re flying though the air!

…(ΦωΦ)…

How many of you noticed that the last photo also provided a sneak peak of the secret titan included in the set – the titan that was not seen in any release cuts! He was also mysteriously hidden from the blister pack photo!

You’ll have to wait until your set arrives to check out the full details though! That sneak peek is all I’m giving! ★

Anyway, let’s get back to the Colossus Titan himself!

He definitely has a rather different atmosphere about him when compared to normal Nendoroids… (゚ー゚*)(。_。*)

His arms and legs are much more articulated than normal – almost like a fully posable Nendoroid!

Along with his serious standard expression, he also comes with a chibi expression for more comical scenes… her also looks a little cuter which makes him fit in with other Nendoroids better! ^^;

You can swap between the two different expressions whenever you like!

Poses like this suit the chibi face nicely! ♥

The first time I saw the Nendoroid, I remember thinking… “H-How do I exchange expression parts on this thing?! ((((;゚Д゚))))”.

I’m sure some of you might be thinking the same thing, but it’s easier than you think! The area highlighted in blue here comes off just like the front hair parts of other Nendoroids – it’s just the same as always!

I remember thinking the same thing when I first saw Nendoroid Monokuma as well… when the characters are not human it can sometimes seem rather confusing!

The production team apparently had quite a lot of trouble effectively making the part separable without standing out, but they’ve done a great job! (;・∀・)

I do think the realistic expression is great for the series… but personally the chibi expression is what makes this Nendoroid perfect to me! ♥

Here we have him doing his early morning jogging! It’s cold enough for you to see your breath now!!

Just one quick note… this is the Colossus Titan, but he is the same size as any other Nendoroid – don’t expect anything enormous! (;´∀`)

Although posing other Nendoroids together with him and the playset make it look as if they’re grown to huge sizes! Colossus Mikudayo!

I look forward to displaying Mikasa and Eren together with him!

Nendoroid Colossus Titan & Attack Playset

He’s shipping out from GSC today!

Also shipping out this week is Picktam!: Attack on Titan! ★


High quality trading rubber accessories with alternate expressions to enjoy!
