Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be bringing everyone some photos from the recent Hobby Maker’s Joint Figure Exhibition Winter 2016!


What is the Hobby Maker’s Joint Figure Exhibition?

The event is a special industry-only exhibition run by Good Smile Company which allows dealers and the media to get a close look at upcoming releases from various manufacturers. The event includes the most recent works of various different companies!

Just like last time, the event was held at the Akihabara UDX building!

Now that the company offices are also in Akihabara, it was nice and close for me to go and take photos! The amount of companies on display this time around was also a new record!! (・∀・)

With WonFes only just behind us, all the latest goodies from each company was on display – each and every item looked so amazing! The event also has distributors and wholesalers in attendance, making it a great place to create new business connections too! (*´Д`)=з

This blog will be taking a look at the Good Smile Company Corner!

Nendoroids and Petites, scale figures, Nendoroid Co-de and more! So much colourful variation to be had! Here are a few of my favourites in closer detail! \(●´ω`●)ノ

An item that will look lovely displayed with Shigure Kai Ni!

Plus, there was also some talk of a possible rerelease for Shigure at the same time as Yuudachi’s release!


– Nendoroid Shoukaku / Zuikaku –

Guten Morgen!

Prinz’s lovely body as well as her sizeable ship parts transformed into a scale figure! I can’t wait to see this one painted! ♪

“Admiral… I shall bring you and your team victory!”

The way her hair is sculpted blowing to the side makes her seem like she is really out at sea! The details on her outfit, the ship parts and the sea planes are also all fantastic!
