Nendoroid Yoshika Miyafuji: Shinden Ver!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Even when I fly in my dreams I never seem to be able to fly very well… I guess my mind just can’t imagine it very well, so I just kind of hover at low altitudes instead… (´・ω・`)

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at a figure releasing on the 27th November, who flies much better than I’ll ever be able to…

Nendoroid Yoshika Miyafuji: Shinden Ver.

Nendoroid Yoshika Miyafuji was highly requested for rerelease, so instead we decided to release a new version with a few changes and improvements!

She looks so cute from the back! (*´▽`*)♡

Her tail can be attached and removed!
It leaves a little hole but that is covered up nicely by her clothes!

Like the previous version Yoshika comes with two types of stands – one standard which connects into her back, and a special ‘flying adaptor’ to display her soaring though the air!

This allows for all sorts of flying poses, even those from the back like this one! ♥

Thanks to the adaptor flying poses are still amazingly secure!

The ears are attached to her front hair parts, but an alternate hair part with no ears is also included to display her without them! ♪

Right… so what exactly has changed since the previous version of Yoshika?
I decided I’d be best to ask someone who knows best, so I decided to find the head planner for her… Uchitarou-san from Phat! Company!

** Phat! Company Summon: Uchiratou-san!!**

What differentiates the Shinden version to the original Nendoroid Yoshika?

(・∀・) “Firstly, the coloring! The overall paintwork has been completely redone to better suit the character designs! Particularly the blue areas have a less vibrant color when compared to before.”

Ah, yes. Now that you mention it the area around her collar does look a little different. It definitely feels closer to how she looked in the series!

(・∀・) “The coloring of the guns have also been adjusted quite a lot… they have a much more metallic feel to them now.”

(・∀・) “Next up, the optional parts! Her new Strike Unit, ‘Shinden‘ is included now! It even includes all six separate blades on each side, as per the official designs!”

Down to the smallest of details! Not to mention that the propellers even spin!!

(・∀・) “There are still a lot more details to come with other optional parts… for instance, take a look at the Zero-Type 22 Combat Aircraft unit here!”

Oh? Are these colors what I think they are? ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ

(・∀・) “The colors have been changed to the colors of Sakamoto-san’s unit, making it easier to make more authentic poses from the series!”

The details add so much to her!! She’s shining so bright in my eyes! ☆

(・∀・) “Each of the propellers also includes an alternate part to display it spinning around, for a more realistic flying pose!”

Even effect parts are included?!
There really is so much fun to be had with her! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

(・∀・) “Plus the expression parts have been changed to the #300 and over type, and the stand is also articulated!”

I’m also glad to see the stand is still the special Strike Witches type! ε=(。・д・。)

(・∀・) “I hope everyone who picks her up will give her the love she deserves!”

Taking off with updated equipment…

Nendoroid Totori

Let’s start off with some news!


Nendoroid Lynette Bishop!

Will be up on the GSC website tomorrow!

I wanted to do a review of the master figure, but a couple of things got in the way and I ended up not being able to… sorry… But if you’re a Strike Witches fan be sure to check her out on the GSC website tomorrow!

Now let’s move onto today’s review!


There are so many figures to look at that were on display at WonFes… I find them all over the offices!!

This week is going to be dedicated to the Nendoroids!


Nendoroid Totori!

Totori is the main character from the popular role playing game called ‘Atelier Totori: Alchemist of Arland 2’. Her full name is actually Totoria Helmolt, and she is a young alchemist that is traveling the world in search of her missing mother… and now she’s joining the Nendoroids!
‘Atelier Totori’ is actually the 12th game in the Atelier series! It’s been going for a long time!!


This is how she looks from the back!

The Atelier series is famous for it’s unique illustrations that have a kind of transparent feeling to them – and you can see the same feeling is kept with the Nendoroid, which makes use of a lot of clear plastic to recreate the effect. If you look close you can see the dress has a lovely purple to pink gradient effect on the clear plastic.


She also comes with her staff!

Totori uses this staff as her weapon in the game, and so it had to be included with the Nendoroid. Even the tiniest of details have been carefully preserved for the Nendoroid version of the staff. Of course she also comes with a replaceable set of hands to hold the staff!


Here she is with her crying face!

Fans of the series should remember this expression and pose – it was used as an official illustration! She also comes with a flask and a blue test tube to hold!


Her homunculus, Chimu-chan!

She’s so tiny!! But even the tiny little Chimu-chan has gradient hair!! 😛


She also comes with a smiling face!

And some optional parts – her bag and a bomb!

Totori is an alchemist so she can create all kinds of items like bombs. Although… that smiling face combined with her holding a bomb is a little worrying. ^^;


She also comes with sitting legs!

You replace her entire lower body to let her sit down!

Plus she comes with a bent arm and another test tube – a red one!

Isn’t she just adorable!!

  /o゚⌒(__人__)⌒゚o\    it almost brings a tear to my eye!”

  \      `ー’´     / 
  ノ             \


She also has a replaceable ribbon for when she sits!

Posing her head to look down like really creates a depressed atmosphere… particularly with the crying face. But it’s still adorable. ^^;


Nendoroid Totori!

Who knows… there might be more from the series coming as well?
