Nendoroid Iowa (Kantai Collection -KanColle-)
Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Today I’m going to be taking a look at…
From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the USA battleship, Iowa! She comes with three face plates including a standard expression, a half-damaged expression as well as a laughing expression!
Even in Nendoroid size Iowa’s body is just as impressive as ever, and her ship parts are large enough to rival the Yamato-class Nendoroids in both size and playability – you can choose to place all the firepower on one side of the ship, move it around evenly or come up with an original placements allowing for all sorts of fun options!
Firing effect parts are included for all her cannons and she also comes with reconnaissance planes allowing you to send her out on various different operations! As with most KanColle Nendoroids she also comes with food parts – Iowa comes with both a hotdog and a hamburger as two classic foods from the USA! She is waiting for you to step up and become her Admiral!
“Hi! I am the Iowa-class battleship, Iowa.
You must be the Admiral of this fleet? I’m glad to meet you!”
Her long blond hair, impressive figure and the lovely star-shaped pupils have all been faithfully preserved in Nendoroid size! The first KanColle character based on a ship from the USA is now joining the Nendoroid fleet as well! ♥
All of the turrets on her ship parts are also beautifully detailed!
The ship parts retain that heavy metallic feeling while also matching with the cute Nendoroid design so nicely! The difference in texture between the mechanical ship parts and her outfit are so clear thanks to the creases on the outfit and the paintwork!
Even the ship parts on her back which you can hardly see from the front are nice and detailed, and also come with search planes! (∩・∀・)∩
Plus these search planes also come with their very own little stands…
So you can display them being sent out on search missions as well!!
Anyway, let’s go back to the very first photo of the blog which had a rather interesting face plate! A winking expression together with her tongue sticking out – an expression based on her half-damaged illustration!
Ooooooohh!!ヽ(ﾟ∀ﾟヽ 三 ﾉﾟ∀ﾟ)ﾉ
The expression is a rather unique one for a Nendoroid, but it seems to suit the design so well! The combination with the folded arms to emphasize her already impressive bust just brings the pose together so perfectly!! She is so cute!! So very cute!!
She also comes with a laughing expression which can also be used with the crossed arm parts to great effect!
“Fire! Fire! Ahaha!! Let’s win this!“
You can just imagine her lively voice as she shouts out in combat thanks to this expression!! ★
The turrets also all come with firing effect parts to really show her going all out on the enemy fleet! The turret batteries are connected with a special arm that can be deployed outward to give the Nendoroid a lot more volume for all sorts of different poses to enjoy! ♪
▲ Even more threatening with fully deployed ship parts!
This huge ship parts with effects and even planes… Iowa has enough parts to rival even the huge Nendoroid Yamato!! But that’s not all! As with all Kanmusu she needs to include some food parts as well for even more posing options! ♡
A hotdog and hamburger!
The soft appearance of the bread used for the hotdog and the melted cheese on the hamburger… they are so small and yet they are so detailed… and they look so delicious!! *nom* (๑´ㅂ`๑) *nom*
Iowa even comes with special hand parts that allows her to hold both of them allowing for all sorts of possible situations! ♪
▲Displayed as a waitress bringing your meal! (੭ु ›ω‹ )੭ु⁾⁾♡
In addition, she also comes with parts that can be used with another ship known for her impressive size! ♥
She comes with holding hand parts to recreate the ending illustration from the PlayStation Vita game ‘KanColle Kai’!
These are specially made to be used together with the separately released Nendoroid Yamato! Display the USA and Japan coming together in friendship!! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
Admiral! Be sure to add her to your Nendoroid fleet!
She will be up for preorder on the 4th November for ¥7,800!★
