With the immense popularity of Japanese web browser game Kantai Collection, its "poster girl" Shimakaze is announced to enter Max Factory's figma action figure line. Let's see how the anthropomorphised speedy Destroyer looks like.

Shimakaze and her three Rensouhou-chans (連装砲ちゃん, literally translated as twin gun-chans).

Torpedo tubes can be removed. This pose is based on one of the illustrations.

Damaged pose with an embarrassed face. The figma has no damaged cloth parts unlike the Nendoroid counterpart.

If one orders from Good Smile Online Shop, there will be a bonus face for one of the Rensouhou-chan (>△<) to represent the damaged expression.

Shimakaze is available for pre-order for 5800 Yen, and will be released in May. However, due to licensing this is supposed to be released in Japan only. But then there are shops and services that can allow you to purchase them overseas should you be interested.

While Shimakaze is not my favourite character in the game, I will be looking forward to her release~

  1. This is such a damn cute figure with the facial expressions. I would seriously consider this in my collection just for that reason. However, I am not sure I could afford it in the second market as I am in the US :^(

  2. This should be a fun set to pose around the house or office, can't wait for her release XD
