Yamato Kai Archive

  • The Kantai Collection Nendoroids are coming out at a rather insane pace: we get more than one a month, and at this rate maybe they’ll actually power through the whole (anime) cast. Because there’s no way we’re getting all the game ship-girls. Personally, I want more bad girls (Northern Princess GSC, please), but Yamato is one of my favorite non-evil ships. I mean, I think she’s everyone’s… it’s the hair and umbrella, I think. SO CUTE. And, of course, her Nendoroid is absolutely massive: she comes with more weapon/ship/effect parts than any figure actually needs. But given what we usually see, it’s nice to see Good Smile going overboard for once. Yamato comes with non-battle/ship parts too: her parasol, a bottle of ramune, and some omelette rice. Plus parts to turn her into Yamato Kai! Though I have to admit, Kahotan’s sleaze is getting out of control: “I’m sure most eyes jumped right to her chest first.” Yes, because we’re all hopelessly attracted to tiny, deformed Nendo breasts. You got us. SIGH. Please tone it down, girl. Yamato goes up for order tonight, and orders from the GSC shop get a special stand: thank god they didn’t have her Kai parts or the embarrassed face as an exclusive, because she’s already going to cost an arm and a leg.

    Prepare For Battle With Nendoroid Yamato

  • Kantai Collection figures are already on the “oh dear lord my wallet” side of expensive, but apparently A+ sees that as nothing but a challenge. ¥18,000 for Max Factory’s Yamato Kai? Haha, nice try, how about ¥85,000? No, that is not a typo. It’s the actual price for two new A+ figures, one of Yamato Kai and one of Musashi Kai. So what do you get for all that money? Well, they’re 1/4.5 scale. Not even 1/4, 1/4.5. Yup, that’s about the only bonus: quality was clearly not the aim here. Those faces, ouch. But if you’re the biggest KanColle fan ever (and very wealthy), how do you get them? Well, joke’s on you, these are Winter Wonder Festival exclusives! Meaning you need a proxy. Cause almost $800 isn’t enough, we need proxy fees too. And the shipping, that’s gonna cost you. But seriously, is this a joke? Are they honestly serious? So funny. So sad. [via A+’s Blog]

  • I love the designs of the Kantai Collection girls, but the prices on Max Factory’s pieces–like Kongou and and 1-58— were so high I didn’t even think of ordering them. Which makes me very sad, because Kongou is SO PRETTY. But thankfully, they have come up with a solution for those of us left behind… or at least for one figure. Their gorgeous Yamato Kai will come in two varieties. The less expensive option is the ‘Light Armament Version’ that comes without her ship parts or the water effect, and retails for a low ¥11,000. Yes, that’s “low” for this line! The ‘Heavy Armament Version’ is ¥18333 (OUCH) and comes with the ship parts & water effect. I actually prefer the slimmed down one–so much easier to display!
