Teased some time earlier, Tama-chan dons her lovely cosplay of one of Kantai Collection’s most popular Kanmusu (Kantai Musume; Ship Daughteru): Kongou.
An outfit from a Taobao store called DH Doll House, the workmanship is surprisingly fine, for this particular mass-production piece…
Got Tama-chan her cosplay wig via the same source as well, re-styling the base wig is not short of a hard work though, particularly the front bangs that attached to her twin buns which are clip-ons.
In the end I had to give up on attaching the bangs onto the buns… May need to research on how to do so later.
After many months of waiting, the highly anticipated Ship Daughteru finally reached my harbour for maintenance!
The Nendoroid Kongou from Kantai Collection, is a regular release. However, since I got her from GSC Online Store, she comes with a couple of extras not available through normal channels.
The special sleeve cover adorn on top of the regular Nendo template package, creating a rather beautiful scene of the Nendo engaging in a raging naval battle.
You could catch a glimpse at Kongou’s sister-ship Haruna behind her, hinting of her possible Nendo release in the near future.
Tama-chan ventures into the world of cosplay!
Can you guess her chara? www
In a couple of posts from last month, I’ve already concluded my review on my Macross holy grail, the YF-29 Durandal Valkyrie (Ozma Lee Custom).
However, I deemed it was necessary for a few comparison shots with some of my other Macross Valks. So here’s a triple shots of them together in there Triple forms… XDc
Firstly, all three Valks in their respective Fighter mode.
Scale wise, Ozma Lee’s ride is the largest in my arsenal, followed by the slightly smaller plamo kit Saotome Alto’s VF-25F Armoured Messiah Valkyrie and the miniature Revoltech Roy Focker’s VF-1S. YF-29 really stands out due to its awesome colour scheme and custom paint job.
A continuation from last time, which is solely focused upon the YF-29 Durandal Valkyrie (Ozma Lee Custom)’s Fighter mode, now let’s transform it into its other modes in this follow-up post.
While boasting of its triple-changing modes of Fighter-Gerwalk-Battroid, there is actually another sub-form shown sparingly in the anime, a tween of Fighter and Gerwalk which I personally called the
AT-ST Chicken Walker mode. XDc
One of the perks of being a Valk is its ability to do a sudden emergency stop and/or reverse thrusts, something of which even its real world jet fighter counterparts have yet to achieve perfectly as far as I know (Please correct me if I’m wrong).
It’s basically your average Gerwalk mode, which is why most of the time it is called as such. The only difference is the arms are not deployed, only the thrusters are detached from its initial location and brought forward as legs.
