So many releases in one month!!
January 2013 was definitely the month of releases for Good Smile Company! Today I’ll be taking a look at another three product samples that are shipping out shortly!
January Release Information
From Senki Zesshou Symphogear:
Nendoroid Tsubasa Kazanari!
|From the anime series ‘Senki Zesshou Symphogear’ comes a Nendoroid of Tsubasa Kazanari, the character who uses ‘Ame no Habakiri’, the first Symphogear System! She comes with three different expressions including a smiling expression, an angry expression and a Swansong expression.
Tsubasa also comes with with four different Armed Gears to wield, including her standard sword, large sword, giant sword and leg blades. A Nendoroid-sized Noise figure is also included allowing you to recreate many popular combat scenes from the show!
She poses so easily and looks great!! Σ(ﾟ∀ﾟ )
Her legs move around so smoothly, it’s so much fun making poses! The blades on the legs are also fitted with a ball joint so they can be rotated into various angles as well! They also are very hard to take off, so you don’t need to worry about them coming off all the time while you’re trying to pose her!
This is how the packaging looks!
She has three different weapons and three expressions! Plus the weapons are huge, and as everyone knows. I love girls with huge weapons!!
On the top right, you can also see the ‘threat to humanity’. the Noise which is also included with her. It’s not a little whale!
By the way, the special Nendoroid stands I spoke about on the22nd January are also included with Tsubasa-san! Last time I got the classroom and road stands, so this time I’m hoping to get the grass one!!
The much awaitedSwansong Expression!
It certainly has an amazing impact!
The special stand was actually the grass stand! That means I managed to get all the different stands!
From Kara no Kyoukai:
Shiki Ryougi Garannodou!
|Shiki Ryougi, the main character of Kinoko Nasu’s light novel is coming back again as a part of Good Smile Company’s 10th anniversary rerelease project!
The pose is based on the cover illustration of the second book, and accurately reproduces the wistful atmosphere of the original art. Special care has also been taken in sculpting her understated bearing and intricate kimono pattern, making her distinctly vibrant and life-like.
Apologies for the delay!! (`･ω･´)
This was one of the products that was announced for rerelease as a part of the 10th anniversary rerelease polls! It ended up taking quite a while to actually be ready, but she has come out looking just as fantastic as ever! Fans of Kara no Kyoukai should not miss out on this amazing figure!!
The sculpting and paintwork are beautiful!
This is really one of my favorite characters ever, so I might be a bit biased… but she really looks absolutely fantastic! She was originally released in November 2008, so it’s actually a product from over four years ago – but even now the quality looks just as amazing as recent figures!
The expression and hair are also perfect!
Her solemn expression and short hair are a faultless rendition of Shiki! It’s figures like this that really make fans experience the character within the figure – it makes me once again realize how much I want to see more of figures like this, make more figures like this and send out more figure like this!!!!
This is how she looks from the back!
The curves of her body and the use of space are also such great aspects of her! Not to mention the amazing print on the kimono – the pattern isn’t just printed on directly, but carefully crafted to suit the creases and turns of the fabric with different graidents… it makes it look incredibly realistic!
As a Shiki fan I really think this is the definitive figure of her, and if you’re unsure whether or not you want her, I strongly recommend her!
Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Yukata Ver.!
|From the ‘Character Vocal Series 01: Hatsune Miku’ comes a Nendoroid of Hatsune Miku wearing a yukata!
The same cute Miku we’ve all come to love is wearing a dark blue yukata with beautiful flower prints scattered along it, creating a very refreshing version of Miku for the hot summer months! She comes with three expressions including her standard smiling expression, a shy expression with a slight blush and an exited expression with sparkling eyes. She also comes with a fan and a pouch that match her yukata perfectly!
This one won’t be in stores, it was a web sales product!
Those who ordered her should be receiving her shortly, if you ordered from the GSC-Tetsu Cafe you’ll be able to pick your order up from there. We also plan to have any excess stock on sale at the cafe from the 30th, so you might be able to pick one up there if you missed out on ordering.
Good Smile & Karaoke no Tetsujin Cafe
This is how the packaging looks!
Quite a simple looking blister pack that almost looks like one of the very first Nendoroids – but it also only cost ¥3000! I love Nendoroids with loads of goodies, but a simple Nendoroid for less is just as nice!
The expression with sparkling eyes was the pride of Shuu-chan from the planning team. I’ve decided to but it on Shuukan Hajimete no Miku-san instead! She’s so cute!!
It’s quite a unique looking chibi expression, and I’m sure it’ll suit all the other Miku Nendoroids nicely!
Now for a quick summary of the blog:
Nendoroid Tsubasa Kazanari and Shiki Ryougi Garannodou will be on sale from the 29th, while Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Yukata Ver. will be reaching those who ordered around the 30th! ヽ(ﾟ∀ﾟ)ﾉ
Those dates are for Japan though, if you waiting for products overseas or ordered Miku for international delivery, you’ll probably be waiting a little while longer!
Get in contact with our partner shops or the Good Smile Online Shop if you have any order or sales queries!
Anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛
