Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)\

Today I’m going to be taking a look at the latest of the KanColle Nendoroids!

Nendoroid Taiho!

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the First Taiho Class Aircraft Carrier – Taiho! She comes with three expressions including an easy-to-use standard expression, a half-damaged expression as well as an attacking expression for combat scenes.Optional parts include a cartridge that can be held as well as set in both her crossbow and ship deck. She also includes three different state-of-the-art planes to fly by her side including the Ryusei, Reppu and Suisei planes for various different scenes. Special parts are also included which allow you to recreate her half-damaged pose! Simply select the situation you like best!

“Everyone ready? It’s time to get going!
First Mobile Force, heading out!”

The state-of-the-art aircraft carrier that even features an armored flight deck – Taiho is joining the Nendoroids!!

Her short-cut brown hair with slightly longer sides, those calm and confident eyes and the combination of a mini-skirt and short leggings bring all of Taiho’s charms alive in Nendoroid size!! I also love her outfit with the little openings you can see beneath her arms, as well as all the details around the neck and hip areas! Not to mention her awesome ship parts! (・∀・)

Various areas of the ship parts are also connected with Nendoroid joints allowing them to move left and right for all sorts of different posing options! ♪

△ This area wasn’t ever even visible in the original illustration!

As with most Nendoroids, she comes with a selection of different hand parts, and these even allow you to pose her aiming her crossbow! (●´ω`●)

△ Shimada Humikane’s design has been faithfully preserved in this expression!

 By the way! Nendoroid Taiho comes with a total of three cartridges that can be set in the crossbow, ship deck parts and can even be held! Σ(・ω・ノ)ノ!!

△ They read ‘War’ ‘Attack’ and ‘Explosive’! ♪

These little playful options that are often included with the KanColle Nendoroids make them really fun to play with as well as put on display!♡

Anyway, let’s move on to her alternate expressions parts!

First up is her…

Attacking Expression!

This confident expression makes me think of her line in the game, “Come now my brilliant children, show them what you can really do!”

That said, her ‘children’ planes are also included as optional parts to fly by her side! This time around the included planes are Ryusei, Reppu and Suisei!

△ The different designs are faithfully portrayed on the tiny little planes!

She can also be posed in more dynamic action scenes for battle with the included bent leg parts! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Taking a closer look at the armor on her stomach area, the details have been very intricately sculpted onto her design!! You can also get a little look at the short leggings under her skirt! (/ω\)

Anyway, onto her third expression…

A half-damaged expression!!

Oooooooooooohhh!! (/ω\)

Along with the expression, she also comes with various parts to help recreate her half-damaged pose! ♪

– Lower Body Parts – 

△ The little rips look so cute in Nendoroid form!

– Ship Deck Parts – 

△ The end tip of the ship deck swaps out to a damaged version!

– Ship Parts –

△ The bottom of the hull can be swapped out completely to a damaged part!

Plus, the half-damage expression can kind of be used as an embarrassed expression as well!! 

△ Trying to hide her embarrassment with a cartridge! ♡

I’m sure all the Admirals out there will come up with all sorts of fun and interesting poses once she joins your collection! ε=(。・д・。)

Enjoy everything from her normal self  to combat scenes to a more embarrassed side!
