They’re so cute that you can’t help but connect hands! (=ﾟωﾟ)人(ﾟωﾟ=)
These two are ready to head out on a journey!!
By ‘these two’ I don’t mean my two lovely models… I mean the figures they’re holding! They’re being shipped off to stores this week!
Today I’ll be taking a look at release samples of Nendoroids #301 and #302! The two Nendoroids following on from the great #300 release of Miku-san!
Nendoroid Kagamine Rin: Append &
Nendoroid Kagamine Len: Append
|Kagamine Rin & Len are joining the Nendoroids in their ‘Append’ outfits! They even come with a background panel and special display arm allowing you to pose them back-to-back with one another, making sure everyone knows that the twins are always close together!
They are scheduled to ship out today, which means that they should be in Japanese stores tomorrow!
It’s incredible how well these two have come out!! (((゜Д゜)))
The sculpting is of course fantastic, but more than anything I think the intricate paintwork is what impresses me the most! It’s impossible for me to fault it!
The gradient on the arms and legs is a nice gentle gradient, which recreates the original illustrations perfectly!!! Wonderful work!!
This is how the packaging looks!
It’s nice, simple and super easy to find the parts you want! Alternate bent arms are included for some more dynamic poses, and they also include a ‘background panel’ that looks amazing when you display the two of them together.
The very first blog of 2013 was in fact a prototype review of these two!
I can’t believe it’s been half a year since then!! Σ(ﾟДﾟ;）
Rin’s lovely begging expression and Len’s determined expression!
Every time I see that expression on Rin I feel like I’d agree to do anything for her, while the expression on Len shows us exactly why he is known as such a handsome fellow!
Both these expressions are absolutely incredible!! I remember seeing loads of people saying they preordered these two mainly for these expressions! (`･ω･´)
It’s even more fun to display the two together!
The included background panels are based on the ‘Kagamine Rin/Len’ software packaging! They easily connect into the stand to create a nice background for your Nendoroid, while still making sure there is still enough space for the arm to move around!
The winking expressions and connected arms are specially designed to create a symmetrical pose when displayed together, creating a true Rin-Len combo!
The first ever double Nendoroid arm!
With the standard arm it was possible to display two Nendoroids together but they ended up super close to one another. With this special double arm you can pose two together with a little distance between them! It’s actually a really useful thing to have!!
The arm part that connects into the back only moves left and right at the moment, but I think if it could be improved to move up and down, then this should start to be included with any Nendoroids that are designed to be displayed together! In fact I openly request that it is! :P
Holding hands behind their backs!
The holding hands parts are included with both Rin and Len, but they only really shine when you display them together like this! I really hope everyone will display these two together – don’t let them feel lonely without each other!!
The characters themselves were of course always cute to start with, but the Nendoroid design and quality brought through GSC’s manufacturing team has really created something that is simply breathtaking to see – particularly when they’re together!
