Good Smile Company Archive

  • Another day, another event in Japan! This time around it’s Anime Japan 2017, a smaller event that only a handful of companies attend. But they still had quite a few new goodies to show us. Re:Zero seemed to be the real star here: Rem & Ram have figures from Good Smile Company, and Rem is getting a Cu-Poche. Kemono Friends also proved to be quite popular, with the Nendoroid reveal of Serval and a figma announcement for her too. There were, of course, many Nendoroids out on display. Li Syaoran is sculpted and so cute! We had a few new announements from Kotobukiya too, like a scaled figure of Aiz Wallenstein from Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Gaiden: Sword Oratoria. Why with these names, Japan. Aiz had a fully painted surprise figure from Genco out & about too. Check them out and much more in the gallery! [via Kahotan & Dengeki]

  • At Toy Fair, Good Smile Company had a whole slew of Disney Nendoroid announcements. They also had the sculpt for Belle out on display, but she was strictly do not photograph so we had to wait to show you guys. And I’ve been kind of dying for this moment, because she looked so adorable in person and I knew the paint would be spectacular! Well, just in time for the live action movie, they are finally showing her off to the public. How amazing is the lil dress spinning pose? So precious. I hope she comes with some of the castle inhabitants as accessories, especially Chip and Cogsworth. Really, they could do a whole set of Petit Nendos from Beauty & the Beast and I’d snap them up happily. [via Kahotan]

  • I am usually a staunch defender of the constant flood of Miku Hatsune figures. While it’s all figures of the same character, there is just so much variety! Racing Miku, Snow Miku, Maiko Miku, Mebae Miku, Tell Your World Miku, Deep Sea Miku… see what I mean? It doesn’t seem repetitive to have so many figures of her when they look so vastly different. But I have a confession: I don’t really love her basic design! I used to be all about it, and I have the original Max Factory and GSC versions of her. And as you can see in the comparison photo of the old & new GSC sculpts, they’ve come a loooong way. The difference in quality is astounding! For me, I prefer the more outrageous Mikus. For new collectors, though, this is a great opportunity: not only is her sculpt great, but her price is ¥8,241–almost unheard of in 2017! And you have a while to save that $80 up because she’s not coming out until 2018. [via Kahotan]

  • The sculpt for Albedo was love at first sight for me. I am such a sucker for wings, and hers might be the nicest sculpted ones I’ve ever laid eyes on. I mean, the detail level is just absurd! So of course I was basically foaming at the mouth to see her painted and get that order in. Well, that day is here and… I’m not as excited as I thought I would be. This is no fault of the figure: I’d never watched Overlord, so I thought her colors would be a bit more dramatic. White dress and black wings? I mean, it’s nice, but I feel like the white makes the sculpt look a little washed out. It also highlights one of my biggest pet peeves: clothing you can see a belly button through yet is magically not skintight anywhere else. Japan, why do you hurt me? Albedo retails for ¥17,600 and is thankfully not an exclusive! Her release date is way off in December, so you have a long time to save up for this beauty. Pre-Order At: HLJ | AmiAmi | GSC (bonus item)

  • We’ve seen all of the new goodies that Good Smile Company had a toy fair already, like Nendoroid Tracer, the Portal 2 figmas, and Nendoroid Link. But of course they had more than 3 figures out! That would be pretty odd, right? A big booth with just 3 things. Very ominous. Anyway, they had lots of their more US-centric licenses out on display, like the Naruto Nendoroids… which are USA only! Weird, right? But cool. There was also a lot of Zelda, Dota 2, Fire Emblem, Metroid, Suicide Squad, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and of course… that amazing Disney announcement. Check ’em all out below the jump!

  • Kalmia Project is one of those strange, brand-new NSFW companies that Native is suddenly distributing. They all seem to have Native-like quality, no? And Native themselves are distributed by GSC. It’s a confusing world of naked figures. Kalmia might be new to the scene, but they showed some awesome stuff off at Wonder Festival. They only had 3 sculpts out, but the White Elf in particular is quite impressive. There’s also a bunny girl illustrated by Ogin Bara and a demon girl illustrated by Houtengeki. And of course we have to have a few art announcements! Check ’em out in the gallery below. [via Kalmia’s Twitter]

  • Nendoroids. I love ’em, but on days like this I think to myself “why are there so many?!” We’ve seen the Nendos from Persona 5 and Fate/Grand Order. But there’s more. SO MANY MORE. We’ve got a surprise Lum, Fullmetal Alchemist cuties, Atlas & P-Body, Tony Taka Racing Miku, a new Kirby x2, Leonard Watch, Li from Cardcaptor, maiko Madoka Nendoroids, a Detective Conan quartet, new Rin & Len, even more Love Live!, Vocaloids Rin & Len, Attack on Titan, Re:Zero, a new Reimu (who looks sooo much better than the old one), Little Witch Academia, Fire Emblem, Kimi no Na wa, Ero Manga-sensei, Granblue Fantasy, Kyoukai no Rinne, Serval from Kemono Friends (so cute!! but why is the African mammal white guys), Saga of Tanya the Evil, Little Armory, Tsuki ni Yorisou Otome no Sahou, BanG Dream!, Is the order a Rabbit?, AND MORE. So much more. Like many cool Nendoroid accessories: tanks for them to ride in, penguin & bear suits, special Halloween and Christmas sets… check ’em out below, and decide what tiny plastic babies to spend your hard-earned money on.

  • Yuri on Ice!!! was one of the runaway shows of 2016 that captured many anime fans’ hearts (mine included) with amazing storytelling and gorgeous animation, so it’s no surprise that we’re seeing loads of merchandise from the show now. First up Orange Rouge will be making Nendoroids of both Yuris and Victor, which look adorable! I love Yuri’s little teeny tiny outfit and Victor’s suave sex appeal in Nendoroid form is quite hilarious and well executed. No sculpt of Yuri #2 aka Yurio yet, but he better come with pirozhki as an accessory! Next up is the long awaited and teased Victor scaled figure by MegaHouse in their G.E.M. line that looks perfect. His face sculpt is spot on, the gentle action pose sums him up perfectly as a character, and all around this looks to be the figure to get if you’re a fan of the show. Last, but not least, Toy’s Works announced that they’ll be making scaled figures of all three characters, but they showed nothing more than that. Lots of figures to tide us over though, thankfully, before an inevitable season two! [via whl4u, AmiAmi’s Twitter, and Yuri On Ice Goods’ Twitter]

  • It seems like every year Good Smile goes bigger and bigger. We’ve already seen their Fate/Grand Order scales, but they have over 25 others at the event. So let’s just dive right in! A massive amount of the announcements are from Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata: Utaha Kasumigaoka, Eriri Spencer Sawamura, Michiru Hyoudou, and Megumi Katou are all getting swimsuit figures. There will also be a figure of Eriri in the very strange ‘Hot Limit’ line that also includes Uzuki Shimamura (with floating boobs!) and Sonico. Speaking of Sonico, her wedding figure is painted. So disappointed: I wish she was less tacky, because the sculpt is gorgeous. Moving on, we have Albedo painted, along with the teased Miku Hatsune and Vira. Their Rem from Re:Zero will of course have a matching Ram, and they’ll give us (of course) a second Rem–the birthday cake version. From KanColle there’s Warspite and Shigure, and some other weapon-wielding ladies like Arisa from Shadowverse & Izetta from Shuumatsu no Izetta. Both Mitsuha Miyamizu and Taki Tachibana from Kimi no Na wa will also be getting figures. Not enough? Well, there’s more! Wilhelmina and Mei Irizaki from High School Fleet, an amazing diorama from Dead Dead Demon’s Dededededestruction, Sayaka & Kyouko, Phosphophyllite from Houseki no Kuni. Damn, that’s a lot of figures!

  • So it seems like over at Tokyo Tower Good Smile Company and Co sat around and were like, “Well, how can we print money fastest?” Then they turned to some intern that’s done nothing but play Overwatch for like 1000 hours since release like the rest of the damn world and the onslaught of figures began. First we got Tracer as a Nendoroid, then announcements of Mei and Mercy, and now we’ve got an announcement of figma Tracer! The party doesn’t stop! Give me all of them as Nendoroids, figmas, and scaled figures now! [UPDATE] Hold onto your ninjas, there’s a Genji figma as well [via TokyoOtakuMode’s Twitter]
