Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Whenever I’m feeling a little down I always start lip-syncing to songs while walking home at night. It really cheers me up, and if anyone comes around you simply need to face down and they’ll never even know!
But anyway, today I have a couple of things to introduce to everyone so let’s get started! There is also a live broadcast announcement at the end of the blog!
First up I’d like to take a look at…
|From the anime series ‘Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet’ comes a Nendoroid of the energetic heroine of the series, Amy! She comes with two different smiling expressions to really bring out her cheerful and energetic personality.
Other optional parts include the ‘kite’ glider she uses on her deliveries, the Hideauze flute that Ledo made as well as the Grace, the squirrel who always keeps her company – various parts to help recreate your favorite scenes from the series!
I know many of you have been waiting for this ever since her unpainted prototype was revealed – apologies for the wait! She is the adorable character designed by none other than Hanaharu Naruko-sensei!
The Hideauze flute and bag look lovely!
Today we’re joined by Yassan from the planning team!
(・∀・) “We worked closely with them to ensure she came out as a Nendoroid of ‘Hanaharu Naruko’s Amy’, even in Nendoroid form!”
The slightest changes in color and smallest details on the accessories were all carefully checked by the publisher!
The story, world and battles were definitely a big part of Gargantia for me, but the bright colors used for the characters, the pretty sea and amazing effects made it beautiful and even more amazing to watch! ♡
(・∀・) “We had to put a lot of thinking into how to get the colors of Grace to come out nicely! The planning team, manufacturing team and publisher would all come together to discuss things like this to help create the best product possible! The meetings were also rather fun and memorable!”
That’s a lot of people to be coming together to all add their input! (｡・д・｡)
(・∀・) “The skirt was adjusted to help show off her curves a little better!”
The curves on her bottom are rather lovely… I highlighted them a bit for everyone!
Plus she comes with this amazing option part – her glider!
It’s actually bigger than you might think! I put a 1 yen coin next to it to try and give you a better idea for the size! She comes with special arm parts to pose her gliding through the air!
Let’s she how she looks with some other flying Nendoroids!☆
It can be a lot of fun to pose characters fro different series together like this!
She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!!
Get in contact with our partner shops if you have any preorder or sales queries!
Plus I have some other products to introduce to everyone today – they’re also going up on the GSC site tomorrow!
