Shuu-chan in a triumphant pose!
There are a number of things I wish to question about this picture, such as why his pinky finger is sticking up, or what that strange cardboard stick is coming out of Oonoshi’s neck… but I’m most interested in taking a look at what Shuu-chan is holding there!!
Today we’ll be taking a look at a product that I know many have been looking forward to!
From Girls und Panzer:
Nendoroid Miho Nishizumi!
|From the anime series ‘Girls und Panzer’ comes a Nendoroid of Miho Nishizumi, the shy and gentle girl who becomes much more outspoken when it comes to tanks. A special turret is also included which allows you to display her riding the ‘1/35th Scale Plastic Model Kit: Tank #IV D-type – Ankou Team ver.-‘, which was released by PLATZ last year.
A Nendoroid from the popular Girls und Panzer!
We announced her back in December during the Nendoroid #300 Event, but since then we’ve received numerous comments from fans who want to see the prototype! Today I can finally show everyone exactly how she has come out!
This is how she looks from the back!
She is wearing her uniform from Ooarai Girls High School which has a lovely green color to it that has come out great on the Nendoroid. The baggy sleeves also look great!
The tank part you see here is also included!! (`･ω･´)
This is the tank that the Ankou Team uses in the series – the Tank #IV D-type! Tanks have always seemed like excessively complex cars to me… it must be tough to follow the “Way of the Tank”!
Let’s move onto the other optional parts now!
First up, headphones!
Miho is the squad leader of her team, and so she needs these headphones to give orders to the rest when in combat! The headphones are not actually separate parts, but are instead attached by a separate fringe part.
The headphones themselves are a simple black and silver design, but the texture on the silver areas looks amazing! Shuu-chan from the planning team said that was in fact his favorite part about the figure!!
Next, a tense expression and binoculars!
The squad leader always needs to pay attention to her surroundings! She comes with a pair of binoculars and a special right hand part to hold them!
The bent arm is included at different angles for both left and right, allowing for a number of different poses!
The binoculars can hang from her neck!
Just attach the included strap parts and place it around her neck. The retro design of the binoculars is lovely – I want to try putting them on some other characters as well!
She can also ride inside the tank! Σ(ﾟ∀ﾟ )
You simply remove the legs and place her upper body into the cupola of the tank for a tank riding pose! (Shuu-chan just taught me the word ‘cupola’! :P).
The turret can also be moved up and down!
This is the 1/35th Scale Plastic Model Kit: Tank #IV D-type – Ankou Team ver.-‘, released by PLATZ!
Ah-hah! This is what Shuu-chan was holding at the start of the blog!! It was actually already released last year, so you should be able to find it at one of your favorite model stores!
The reason I’m showing this product here today is because of a special collaboration with the Nendoroid that I’ll show in just a bit… but first lets open up the box and see what’s inside!
There are so many different tiny parts!! Just putting together a Mini 4WD was a challenge for me… putting this together must require some inhuman skills! The different sections are all labelled with some masking tape, so I’m guessing someone is already working on putting this together.
I was quite tempted to mix around the labels for a second, but I decided that would just be too mean. :P
This is the complete, painted version!
Obviously I didn’t put this together… this one belongs to Noguchi-kun from the production team!
Such incredible paintwork and matte has made it look just like a real tank!! I guess this is what it means to be really good with plastic models!
Swap out for the Nendoroid turret!
Oooh!! This is awesome!! Seeing the complete tank together with the caterpillar tracks and all is so much more epic!!
The school badge and Ankou team mark are included as decals with both the Nendoroids and with PLATZ’s tank, no matter which you buy you can decorate the tank to show it belongs to the Ankou team!
From Girls und Panzer:
Nendoroid Miho Nishizumi!
