“Noo! I can’t believe I’m going down like this…”

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Let’s get straight into today’s prototype review! A character from the hugely popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection ~KanColle~’…

Nendoroid Shimakaze!!

From ‘Kantai Collection ~KanColle~’ comes a Nendoroid of Shimakaze, one of the cutest and fastest battleships you’ll ever see! Shimakaze includes various optional parts including three of the cute ‘Rensouhou-chan’ naval artillery cannons!

Other optional parts include an alternate body to pose her in her ‘half damage’ form, torpedo parts to fire on her enemy and even shooting effect parts for her cute little cannons. Recreate the world of KanColle in cute Nendoroid form!

She is so super cute!! (*´Д`)*lick* *lick*

The huge bow in her hair looks like giant bunny ears!

Her low-rise pleated skirt and slightly visible V-string underwear are also lovely!

She has been sculpted down to the very finest of details!!☆

Three Rensouhou-chan cannons are also included!

Here they are all displayed together! ♪

They also come with special effect parts to display them firing! (゚∀゚)

But that’s not the only effect parts! Shimakaze herself also comes with a torpedo launcher to sink her enemies!

The effect parts really make the torpedoes appear to be firing off! ★

Apparently there parts were remade again and again to try and recreate the ‘launch’ feeling as accurately as possible!

You can really see a lot of work was put into her weapons!
Let’s have a world with the lead planner of the figure, Kyojin!

*Planning Team Summon: Kyojin*

(・∀・) “To be honest, my favorite character is actually Ryuujou!”

What made you want to work on KanColle Nendoroids in the first place?

(・∀・) “I was playing the game and decided the characters were so cute, I’d love to make figures of them! Just before WonFes I managed to speak with the publishers and that started it all – they were very keen themselves!

So everything worked out nice and easy! ♪ Yay!

(・∀・) “I really think the Nendoroid design suits the KanColle girls quite nicely, so I’m hoping we can continue the series too!”

Oooh! What wonderful news! ☆

Let me know as soon as you know if there will be more!! (`・ω・´)シャキーン

I’m guessing your favorite point of the figure will be the first part to feature on today’s blog?

(・∀・) “Yep! The ‘half-damage’ body!”

Cutting it close!! Yet so wonderful!!

(・∀・) “The Rensouhou-chan cannons also come with damaged variations!”

Shimakaze-chan herself looks a little upset to be damaged! But it’s so cute! ♪

Her knee-socks and panties are also a little damaged!

… and her hair ribbon can also be replaced with this damaged version! ★

(・∀・) *whispers* “We’ve also paid special attention to her underboob!”

*whispers back* Then let’s take a closer look at the extra effort put into it…

Lovely! ♡

(・∀・) “The alternate body definitely let’s you enjoy a whole different side of Shimakaze! In more ways than one!”

Apologies to all the admirals for the wait, she’s finally here!!

A Nendoroid filled with endless fun…
Nendoroid Shimakaze!
