Fighting for a prototype with Marusama just before release!

Or so I say… but the truth is that Maru-sama always lets me make use of the prototype first… He’s too kind! :P

The design team always creates an ‘order sheet’ for each figure, which includes images and text to try and explain all the wonders of that particular figure! You’d be surprised how many people are involved in just getting a single product ready and out into the market!

But anyway, today I’ll be taking a look at these two lovely Nendoroids! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ
From Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse:
Nendoroid Cryska Barchenowa & 
Nendoroid Inia Sestina

From the popular anime series ‘Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse’ comes Nendoroids of the two soldiers of the Soviet Army known as the ‘Scarlet Sisters’, Inia Sestina & Cryska Barchenowa! Cockpits are also included, and can be placed together to recreate the two-seat cockpit! Enjoy the Scarlet Twins in cute Nendoroid form!

Plus… BETAs are included once again!! (`・ω・´)b

Previous when we released Nendoroid Yui Takamura from the same series she came with a soldier-class BETA – and the response was amazing! :P

This time around there are BETAs once again, as well as many other extra parts for fans to enjoy!!
This is how she looks from the back!

These are the 2nd and 3rd Nendoroids from ‘Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse’, but they’re so detailed and have such intricate paintwork that it’s hard to believe that they’re Nendoroids! They really look identical to the characters from the series!! I can only assume they’re both going to be a huge job for the manufacturing team! (((゜Д゜)))

I also have to say that I think they both have a really cute bottoms. :P
Inia includes her teddy-bear, Misha!

A special set of bent arms is also included which allows you to display her holding onto Misha! The teddy has such a serious expression, and even his claws and the underside of his feet have been carefully painted! It’s hard to see this as just a small extra when so much detail goes into it!

As you can see, displaying Inia with Misha makes for a truly adorable pose!
A usable cockpit is also included!

Yep! She can actually sit inside the cockpit, ready for battle!! Another special set of arms is included to display her holding the handles in the cockpit – these are completely separate arms to the ones used to hold Misha!

The cockpits can also connect together!! Σ(゚∀゚*)

A single cockpit is included with both Inia and Cryska, so if you get both of them you can join the cockpits together! I’ll show a photo of this together with some surprising expressions at the very end of the blog! (=゚ω゚)ノ
Cryska comes with a Dragunov sniper rifle!

An arm to hold the sniper rifle is also included, allowing you to create more combat-orientated scenes in sharp contrast with Inia’s cuter teddy poses!

I’m sure when you first look at this photo you’ll notice the strange bumps all over the BETA first, but be sure to take a look at the sniper rifle as well – the detail is magnificent!
Holding hands to recreate the series’ key visual!

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get my hands on Nendoroid Yui Takamura, so I wasn’t able to take my own photo… so this photo comes from one of our professional photographers! (`・ω・´)

If you picked up Nendoroid Yui for yourself, you’ll be able to recreate this lovely pose of them holding hands! As a side note, Nendoroid Yui’s hand part is included with Cryska and wasn’t a part of the original Nendoroid Yui release!
The BETAs!

This time we have chibi forms of the Grappler-class BETA and Laser-class BETA!

The grappler-class (on the left) is really gross looking! The face (if you can call that a face) and teeth actually have a strangely realistic feel to them!

I suppose the laser-class is also fairly gross… but he also has a kind of cute side to him! Just looking at him makes me hope that those eyes can spin around inside the head. I also wish I could get a whole group of them together and create a laser BETA hoard… but that might be rather difficult…
Joint-cockpit with insane expressions!

You can display both of the twins both in their so-called ‘berserk’ state!! These are definitely some very unique expression parts! Σ(゚∀゚*)

Plus as I mentioned before, the cockpits can be connected together!

They even connect in such a way that the one is higher than the other! A cockpit is included with both Inia and Cryska, but note that the part that allows you to connect them together is only included with Nendoroid Cryska.

In the photo above I’ve only connected two of the seats together, but if you had enough parts you could string three or even four together! If anyone decides to pick up multiple Nendoroid Cryskas, be sure to give it a go and send me some pictures!! (*´∀`*)

I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ
