Mori from the planning department looks so refreshed with his new hair cut!

I must say that the two Nendoroids in the background as well as that strange green mask are definitely grabbing my attention… but today’s review is of course not about them, it’s about the Nendoroid in Mori’s hands!

003

Nendoroid Totori!

Totori is from the popular role-playing game “Atelier Totori: Alchemist of Arland 2” – her full name is actually Totoria Helmont, the young alchemist who is traveling the world in search of her missing mother.

A figure of Meru Kishida’s beautiful illustration! ((゚Д゚))

The beautiful translucent color from the illustration has been preserved by using clear plastic parts!

002

This is how the packaging looks!

As you can see it is loaded with loads of extras for us to take a look at! Be careful when you open it up that none of the small parts bounce out and go missing!

004

This is how she looks from the back!

She makes use of the arm stand, which connects into her hair rather than her back. A part of the hair can be removed allowing you to replace it with a version without the hole for the arm – in case you want to display her without the stand.

005

Let’s move onto the optional parts!

A crying face, plus red and blue test tubes!

This crying face was used in one of the key illustrations for the game – and you can even recreate the same pose from the illustration. (If you do a Google search for ‘トトリのアトリエ‘ it’ll be the second picture that pops up). The red and blue test tubes also make use of clear plastic for a really nice and detailed-looking effect!

006

An energetic smiling face!

That is one expression just packed with happiness!! Just by looking at it I feel like I can get through anything….

Plus the flask in her right hand has measurements on it!

Unfortunately they’re on the other side of this photo – but do take a closer look if you decide to grab her!

007

She also comes with some ‘flamm’!

This is an item that you made using alchemy in the game – it’s something like a bomb. She also comes with right arms that stretch out horizontally as above!

You can use these arms with the flask to recreate yet another one of the game’s key illustrations!

When her arms are out like that it gives a kind of dynamic feeling to the figure! It’s so nice to have so many useful optional parts to play with!

008

But we’re not done yet…

Sitting parts plus a different ribbon!

She comes with a whole extra lower body to place her in a sitting pose like this one – she also comes with a different ribbon for her back to suit the sitting pose!

010

Magical Girl transformation!

As with most Nendoroids – the expressions and parts can be switched around for some more fun! Pick your favorite Nendoroid and give them a little makeover – as you can see her headband can also be removed! (although the two parts of it are stuck together).

Nendoroid Torori!

Nendoroid Totori

Let’s start off with some news!

000

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!

001

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!

002

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!!


003

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.


004

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!


005

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!
 
Plus…

006

Her homunculus, Chimu-chan!

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

007

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. ^^;


008

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!!

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. ^^;


010

Nendoroid Totori!

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