Today’s Main Feature!

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Hajime Iwaizumi!

From ‘Haikyu!!’, the volleyball anime series with a third season currently airing, comes a Nendoroid of Aobajohsai High School’s volleyball team vice-captain and ace spiker, Hajime Iwaizumi! He comes with three face plates including his standard expression, a provoking expression as well as the angry expression he would sometimes have when Oikawa teases him.

The Nendoroid allows you to recreate a number of memorable scenes from the series and comes with a volleyball as well as a special base made in the image of a volleyball court. An alternate upper body part to display him wearing his sports jersey is also included! Be sure to add the spirited and handsome Iwa-chan to your collection and recreate all sorts of different situations!

“The team that work better as six is stronger, you idiot!”

The powerful wing spiker and vice-captain for Aobajohsai High School’s volleyball team is joining the Nendoroids! Hajime Iwaizumi! His spiky hairstyle and sharp eyes have all been converted into Nendoroid size so perfectly! Even in chibi-size he looks so very handsome!

As with the other Haikyu!! Nendoroid he comes with a volleyball part complete with a stand to create poses of him in a volleyball match! ♪

Iwa-chan’s Spike!

That confident look on his face that is sure to give his team the inspiration they need to win the match!!  Along with the standard expression above, he also comes with a provoking expression ready to take on anyone! (●‘∀‘●)ノ”

If you combine this expression with a pose og him rolling his sleeves back it really captures his high morale before a match! I really love the way this expression came out!

Plus… take a closer look at his arm!

You can see he is showing off his muscles!! (´□`。)
(Even on a Nendoroid we have proof of Iwa-chan’s strength! Yay!)

His third expression is this angry expression!

I can just imagine him insulting Oikawa!!

Displaying this Iwa-chan together with Nendoroid Toru Oikawa and his playful expression makes for some fun poses from the everyday life of the Aobajohsai High School’s volleyball team! ♪

▲ Enjoy the relationship of these two in Nendoroid size!

Changing the angle of his neck makes for an even more angry-looking expression!

(He may be angry… but the way he has so much strength put into his mouth is so cute!!)

Anyway, you may remember that Nendoroid Oikawa comes with a jacket that can be displayed over his shoulders… but Iwa-chan instead comes with an alternate upper body that is wearing the jacket! ε=(。・д・。)

▲ Teammates standing back-to-back on the court!

A pose that shows that they have each others back in the upcoming match! You can feel the strong bond between the two of them!

One of things about his jacket that really stood out to me was the way the one side is flapped open!

The right half of the jacket is flapping up in the wind creating that ‘cool guy’ effect!! The sleeves on Oikawa’s jacket were fitted with joints for slightly different poses, but the dynamic effect for Iwa-chan is included directly in the sculpt! ヽ(゚∀゚ヽ 三 ノ゚∀゚)ノ

If we take a look from the back…

The hem on the back is also blowing in the wind!

You can even get a little glimpse of the uniform he is wearing underneath the jacket which helps to create the feeling that he is really ‘wearing’ the jacket!! Plus let’s once again look at that amazing spiky hair!!  (∩・∀・)∩

Along with the accessories and parts above, he also comes with various other interchangeable arm parts which allow you to recreate all sorts of scenes from the series as well as all original poses!

▲ Brofist making use of the clenched fist parts! (=´∀`)人(´∀`=)

Enjoy the handsome Iwa-chan in Nendoroid size!
