Good Smile has really stepped up their game with their signature Nendoroid Pandora – these popular chibi renditions of famous characters are becoming more and more advanced, especially when featuring the special functions of the characters!

Currently exploding in popularity, the anime series “Pandora in the Crimson Shell: Ghost Urn” has really taken over the hearts of many fans in Japan, especially with Clarion, the adorable battle cyborg with a really unique function. Capturing her normally cool expression with 2 alternate head parts, Clarion comes equipped with her combat knives and an effect part highlighting her special move – the Plasma Neko Punch!

What makes this Nendoroid extremely special though is the attention given to her Pandora Device – situated in a rather embarrassing spot, Clarion also has a matching facial expression which fits this pose perfectly. Even better is the fact that the perverted manifestation of BUER is included; the articulated middle leg (yes, that is a leg) allows for various “nuances” when posed with Clarion.

Take Clarion home and add her to your Nendoroid collection, but make sure never to touch her ears! NEVER!

“Everyone who touches these ears is going to hell.”

From the popular game series Shining comes a 1/7th scale pre-painted figure of Sonia Blanche from Shining Resonance!

Known as the Lightning Princess, Sonia has a personality of a tomboy and definitely knows her way around her sword. Unfortunately (or fortunately) for Yuma, he have just accidentally walked in on Sonia as she is trying to pull her stockings on. That confused look on her face clearly gives away what will happen next. Yup, you guessed it – as swift as her ability to take action, she will be drawing her sword (not pictured) in a blank of an eye. Thankfully, this pose has been captured in place for us to adore in its full glory before we see a sword fly in the air!

Enjoy saving the Kingdom of Astoria while having the carefully crafted Lightning Princess by your side!

While Metal Gear Solid brought forth many memorable moments, one of them undoubtedly has to be the final encounter with Sniper Wolf. Across a snowy field, the deadly sniper faced off with Solid Snake in a tense long range battle – a battle of bullets and ideologies, beautifully presented with Hideo Kojima’s signature flair.

To honor this beloved character, Kotobukiya revisits Sniper Wolf with the help of master illustrator Shunya Yamashita in the newest entry to their Bishoujo “Pretty Girl” line – this 1/7th scale reimagining of the bittersweet character reveals a private moment of respite with undertones of her wild, untamed, and solitary persona.

Of course, Sniper Wolf would never be without her signature Heckler & Koch PSG1; she languidly holds the barrel with the sensitivity needed to deftly pull the trigger and looks straight ahead, eye contact leading her target’s gaze towards her equally revealing uniform. A nice touch is the addition of the wolf pup peeking out of the broken crate – those who know the lore can agree with Otacon that it’s easy to fall in love with such a woman, as beautiful as she is complex. Sigh~
