Nendoroid Patchouli Knowledge

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I had a rather busy and active weekend for the first time in ages. I guess it’s not such a bad thing to go outside and absorb some sunlight once in awhile…!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at:

Nendoroid Patchouli Knowledge!

From the popular game series by Team Shanghai Alice, the ‘Touhou Project’ comes a Nendoroid of Patchouli Knowledge, the magician with a weak constitution who keeps herself confined to the Scarlet Devil Mansion’s library.

She comes with three expressions including her standard face, a smiling face and a cute yawning expression. Optional parts include sitting parts, a book and even some glasses which suit her intellectual personality. You can also pose her holding the book to cover her mouth for a rather different appearance! Enjoy keeping the adorable Patchouli by your side!

Pache-san!!!! (´□`。)

Apologies to all the Touhou fans for the long wait!!

The adorable magician that confines herself to the Scarlet Devil Mansion’s library is joining the Nendoroids! ♡ Her cute frilly negligee outfit has been shrunk into Nendoroid size very nicely! Her lovely long hair filled with ribbons as well as her puffy hat also look lovely in Nendoroid size – the details are amazing! (σ・∀・)σ

△ The cute candy-like colors are so very colorful!

Believe it or not, this is actually the 14th Nendoroid from the Touhou Project! Let’s have a quick look through the Touhou Nendoroid history! ♪

Nendoroid Reimu Hakurei

★ Nendoroid Marisa Kirisame

☆ Nendoroid Sanae Kochiya

★ Nendoroid Sakuya Izayoi

☆ Nendoroid Remilia Scarlet

★ Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet

☆ Nendoroid Youmu Konpaku

★ Nendoroid Yuyuko Saigyouji

☆ Nendoroid Cirno

★ Nendoroid Alice Margatroid

☆ Nendoroid Fujiwara no Mokou

☆ Nendoroid Yukari Yakumo

Looking though all of them brings back memories!
There are a lot more than I thought!
 (I can’t wait to see who will be next!) 

Anyway, let’s get back to Pache-san! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

As you can see, her nightcap can be completely removed!

Here she is without her hat, deep in concentration reading her book! She looks so lovely!! All the photos up to here have made use of her standard, calm expression… but she also comes with this one!  ♪

A sideways glance with a gentle smile! ♥︎

This expression gives her more of a mysterious charm! But she also comes with another item that fits with her library girl personality so very well!

Red frame glasses!!

Patchouli is also known as ‘The Unmoving Great Library’ and this pose captures that so nicely! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

(・∀・) “I wanted to bring out the intelligent side of Pache-san somehow, which led to these glasses being included!”

We’re joined by the figure’s planner,  Hamako!

(・∀・) “Plus to even further bring out her character, we also included sitting parts!”

Oooooooooohhhh!! (/ω\)

The way she is sitting is so adorable too!!

(・∀・) “I thought this way of sitting suited Pache-san’s cute looks best!” 

The mixture of the childish expression and mature expression… it’s such delicious contrast!! *nom* (●´ㅂ`●) *nom*

This expression suits the glasses really well too!

(・∀・) “Oh yes! There’s something I really wanted to point out about her expressions!”

Oh? What?! (°Д°;≡°Д°;)

(・∀・) “The smiling face you introduced a little earlier… if you block her mouth with the book you get a pose like this!!”

Without the smile… she looks rather annoyed…!

(・∀・) “Exactly! She may only have three expressions, but if you combine them the options like this book and the glasses, you end up with all sorts of options!”

I would never expect a smile to be hidden behind that book! She really seems to be glaring at me…!! (°д°;)

But hang on…. you said three expressions?! We’ve only seen two!

(・∀・) “Her third expression is this yawning expression!”

Another super cute expression!! ∀`*)

(・∀・) “The calm and composed Pache-san looks lovely, but sometimes its fun to catch her off guard in a naturally cute pose like this one! Time for bed!”

She looks so defenceless…!!
She also suddenly seems like someone I would get along with really well… 

(・∀・) “Be sure to add he to your own collection and enjoy all the different sides of Pache-san!”

Nendoroid Patchouli Knowledge

She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!

Plus once again orders from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a special B3 poster illustrated by ideolo! ★

figma Snow Miku: Snow Bell ver.

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today is Setsubun where you are supposed to eat Ehomaki sushi… but I’m just eating swiss roll instead as it’s the same shape! I also still need to do some Mamemaki!

Only 6 days left until WonFes!

Following on from yesterday I’m going to be looking at another one of the WonFes exclusive products! Here is the line-up once more!

Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Bell Ver.

Nendoroid Battleship Re-Class

figma Snow Miku

figma Saber: Dress ver.

More details can be found here: http://whl4u.jp/en/

Today I’ll be taking a look at…

figma Snow Miku: Snow Bell ver.

Pure and innocent, the new snow songstress is joining the figma series!

Snow Miku has reached its 6th anniversary this year, and once again the design from piapro voted as the best on the NicoNico Live Broadcast has been transformed into a figma! The theme this year was ‘Plant Life in Winter’, and the winning design was this fairy-like design by Taran! Rabbit Yukine is also included based on the adorable design by Hayuki!
· Three expression parts are included: a standard face a winking face and a bright smiling face.
· Optional parts made to suit the theme are also included, such as a leaf umbrella and lily of the valley shaped bells.
· An alternate body for Rabbit Yukine is also included for more posing options.
· An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.

Even the package is overflowing with cuteness!! 

The new Miku based on the theme of plant-life and Winter in Hokkaido has become a figma and landed on my desk for review!! 

Her expression is so cute that it’s unfair!

The gentle, soft feeling of Taran’s illustration comes across so nicely! ♪

I’m so glad to see that Max Factory decided to make another Snow Miku into a figma! The one released in 2014 was so cute! A big thank you to Max Factory!!

Let’s take a look at what optional parts are included!

Just like Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Bell Ver. , she comes with a leaf umbrella! She comes with special hands to hold the umbrella up, making it easy to attach even for someone as clumsy as me! (*゚ー゚*)

She also has this winking expression which gives her a slightly more mature appearance!!

But the expression I like the most this time around just has to be this one…

Her smiling face!!

Oooooooooooooooooh!! (●´ω`●)

Just looking at this innocent, adorable expression makes a smile crawl across my face as well! She just looks so happy!!

In her hands she is holding a Lily of the Valley bell, which has been painted with a lovely golden gradient! The little optional parts as well as her outfit are all painted absolutely amazingly!! (/ω\)

This is how the blister pack looks!

As you can see…. Yukine is also included!! <○><○>

Rabbit Yukine comes with his very own flower lamp to hold! He is posed in a bit of a jumping pose too! ♥︎

He looks so soft and fluffy! This is actually the very first Rabbit Yukine to be included with a figma, and thus he comes with some extra little parts too…


/ Ta-da!! \

He comes with an alternate body to display him standing! Σ(・ω・ノ)ノ!

This makes him look much more gentlemanly – the perfect escort for Snow Miku!! ★

The ribbon designed to look like a lily of the valley leaf and the fluffy round tail are also faithfully recreated on the figma version! ♪ 

\ Yay!!/

Snow Miku seems very pleased with how Rabbit Yukine has come out! ♪

Plus, just like the Nendoroid from yesterday, figma Snow Miku can also have her cape removed for a slightly different appearance!  (σ・∀・)σ

*Photo taken in the image of Snow Miku feeling the first snow falling down!

The outfit really does make her look like a little fairy!! ♪

The edges of her outfit around her chest have been coloured beautifully with a golden strip! 

Speaking of parts that can be removed, the leaf of the umbrella can also be separated!

Miku is playing some hide-and-seek! ★

I can’t wait to take her out for some photos out in a forest or some other places outdoors! Bring her home with you an enjoy the last few weeks of Winter with a Winter fairy by your side! ♡

Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Bell Ver.

Only 7 days until WonFes?!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

B-But that means that the final weekend before WonFes has already come to an end!! I need to change my way of thinking… it’s not that there are only 7 days left… there are over 100 hours left! Lots of time to prepare!!

With the weekend closing in on us, it’s time for me to take a closer look at the Winter Wonder Festival 2015 products that will be sold at the WONDERFUL HOBBY LIFE FOR YOU!! 21 Booth!

Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Bell Ver.

Nendoroid Battleship Re-Class

figma Saber: Dress ver.

Today I’m going to be taking a closer look at…

Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Bell Ver.!

A Winter fairy summoned by the ring of a bell.

Snow Miku has reached its 6th anniversary this year, and once again this year’s design from piapro was decided by fans on the NicoNico Live Broadcast, and has been transformed into a Nendoroid! The theme this year was ‘Plant Life in Winter’, and the winning design was this fairy-like design by Taran! Rabbit Yukine is also included based on the adorable design by Hayuki!

The lily of the valley held by Rabbit Yukine can also be switched out and held by Miku instead! Various other plant-themed optional parts are also included, such as a large leaf for her to use as an umbrella, as well as some lily of the valley bells in the shape of a treble clef. A special lily of the valley base is also included, which actually includes ringing bells! She also comes with sitting parts, allowing for even more posing options for fans to enjoy!

Yahooooooooooooi!!! (´□`。)

This year’s Snow Miku has come out looking absolutely adorable!!

The outfit design has been preserved perfectly in Nendoroid size, and she even comes with all sorts of items with the theme of plant life – from Lily of the Valley flowers to Japanese rowan leaves! The delicate and light design of this year’s Miku is suited to the Nendoroid design very nicely!! ♡

The snowflakes in her hair accessories and hair have also been beautifully preserved as always, and the headset made in the image of foliage is also looking lovely! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

Herhair makes use of translucent parts to create a semi-transparent effect! 

Along with her standard smiling face, she also comes with this dazzling smile that could brighten up even the darkest of days! ♡

…!! (There are simply no words!!)

Taran-san designed this expression as well, and it is absolutely perfect for the little fairy Miku! It’s almost too cute to even be allowed!! ♥︎

That innocent smile could purify the most corrupt of things!!

In the photo above she is holding the Lily of the Valley bell made in the shape of a treble clef, but you can also swap it out for the Lily of the Bell lamp which is normally held by Rabbit Yukine!

Plus there is this expression showing off her top teeth!!

Another thing to note is that her twin tails and the flowers hair accessories are fitted with joints allowing you to match the movements to your pose! ♪

Rabbit Yukine is also included! ★

Yukine was first included with Snow Miku last year, but his popularity means he is back once again for 2015!

He has a winking expression which gives him a bit of a playful look! His cute outfit also makes him look very gentlemanly! (゚∀゚*)

This is how he looks from the back!

The ribbon is made in the image of a Lily of the Valley leaf!

Plus his round bushy tail is very cute!!
(The hole in his head is for his very own little stand which is also included!) 

Before I go on with the optional parts…

Let’s first take a look at the packaging!

This time we have a rectangular box with gentle colors and a round window!!

The top is what makes it special!! ★

The box has a rather unique design, and opens up by twisting the two Lily of the Valley that are placed on the top!

It’s really very cute when you see it in person!!

The way it opens reminds me of opening candy which gets me even more excited! (●´ω`●)ゞ

Anyway, let’s get back onto the review shall we! <○><○>

This is how the blister pack looks! Ignoring the biggest parts for now, you can see she comes with sitting parts, various expressions and a couple of hand parts… but the one thing that will grab anyone’s attention…
 
The Lily of the Valley Base!
 
A rather large base that Snow Miku can sit on rather comfortably! (/ω\)

The very base of the leaf even has some melting snow to keep with the Winter theme! Even though it’s such a large base the attention to detail is still fantastic! 

Plus the flowers have real bells inside them!! ♪

They make a lovely gentle ringing sound to match Miku perfectly!

The other rather large item included with her…

A leaf umbrella!! ★

With the giant left held above her head, Miku looks even more like a little fairy of the forest!

The very tip of the leaf has a drop of water… which is attached with a round joint, which means that you can change the angle that it’s falling at! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Plus as it is designed to be attached and removed, you don’t need to worry about it breaking! ♪

On that note, the little droplets at the end of her skirt are made from a soft material, so they are also very difficult to break accidentally!

Huh??

Something seems different?!

That’s right! You even have the option of removing her cape for a slightly different appearance!! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Without the cape you can see her lovely outfit all the way up to her neck!

As a side note… she comes with two cape parts – one standard one and one included to pose her with the leaf umbrella! (*´Д`)=з

Simply pick the one that matches your posing better!

But there is still one more thing I need to show everyone!

The 2015 Snow Miku…

Comes with ball jointed arms!! (/ω\)

That means that you can take more poses than ever before, and when the cape is removed you can really create all sorts of dynamic poses!

The legs designed for the sitting pose can also be placed on the standard body to create some rather interesting poses! ♥︎

A brand new outfit to brighten up the Winter! ♡

Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Bell Ver.

She will be on sale at WonFes this weekend!

All of this will cost you just ¥4,500. A maximum of two per person will be available, and a total of 3000 will be on sale at the event! φ(.. )

Don’t get there too late or you might miss out!!

Of course, you can also preorder this item from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP starting from the 8th February at 16:00JST until the 16th February at 21:00JST!
