Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’m already starting to show signs of hay fever and the pollen levels aren’t even high yet! The daily battle against the pollen is set to begin soon!

But anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at the 1/8th scale…

Yuudachi Kai Ni!

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a 1/8th scale figure of the fourth Shiratsuyu Class Destroyer, Yuudachi Kai Ni! The figure has been designed to be displayed in combat with the previously released Shigure Kai Ni, and is based on an original illustration by kujouitiso specially drawn for the figure. The dynamic pose of the figure is made even more fascinating by the effect parts that swirl around her.

She holds torpedoes in one hand to show she is in mid-combat, yet the expression on her face captures her determined personality even in the heat of battle. The ship parts have also been intricately sculpted, and the turrets as well as the torpedo launchers on her legs are of course fitted with joints to add slightly different nuances when displaying her! The ship parts are also sculpted to look physically heavy to contrast against Yuudachi’s soft looking skin and create a figure that fans will be proud to gaze at for years to come!

“Right, let’s have ourselves a lovely party!”

A lovely scale figure of the fourth Shiratsuyu Class Destroyer, Yuudachi Kai Ni in battle mode! 

The two tufts of hair that look a bit like animal ears as well as the red eyes that make Yuudachi her ‘Kai Ni’ have all been faithfully included on the figure! The slight pink gradient of her hair has also been preserved! ♡

△ The feeling of movement brought on from the sculpt is also fantastic! (・∀・)

If we take a look at her from the back…

Most of Yuudachi is blocked by her huge ship parts!

Plus the torpedo launchers on her thighs as well as the gun barrels on the turrets feature articulated parts allowing for slightly different nuances when posing her!

The fiery effect parts that surround her show the intense battle she is in, creating a dynamic figure that really captures the atmosphere of the KanColle universe! The red hot flames are also of course a show that Yuudachi is the destroyer that boasts the highest firepower of them all! (੭ु ›ω‹ )੭ु⁾⁾

△ The red flames coupled with her red eyes make
her seem to be burning with fighting spirit!

She is posed as if pulling down the white scarf down a bit with a bit of a grin on her face, as if she had just launched an attack of her own!

Plus if you look a little further down, you’ll also notice that the wind is blowing her skirt up quite a fair amount, making low angle shots for the blog quite difficult! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

Moving a little higher up, her rather impressive bosom is beautifully sculpted with the rather tight outfit showing off her curves very nicely!! The lines formed by her bent arms and legs are also really nice! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

On the other hand, we also have the mechanical looking ship parts to contrast against her soft looking skin! Let’s take a closer look at those parts – notice that the ship parts feature glossy areas, half-glossy areas as well as flat areas to really recreate that ship-like appearance effectively! ♥︎

△ Even a little ladder is included on the funnel! ☆

Her shiny shoes and slightly transparent socks also look lovely!
Note the little antennae on the back! ♡₍₍ ◝(・ω・)◟ ⁾⁾♡

△ The ship parts also boast lovely gradient paintwork.

Another area on the ship parts that I adore…

The white sail billowing in the wind!

The sail itself couldn’t be completely seen in the original illustration, so we had to assume how this area looked in order for the sail to blow outward like this – it ended up with these three strings connected at the bottom!

Last but not least, there is also a red ship propeller on her back! Not to mention that each of the torpedoes in her hands also each have a little golden propeller on the end!

△ The comical expressions on the torpedoes are also a cute touch! (●´ω`●)

So much to see on a single figure! Add the destroyer to your collection!
