Good Smile Company is going to release the Bath Time Collection ( お風呂これくしょん ) Akagi ( 赤城 ) bath toy from the popular web game “Kantai Collection” ( 艦隊これくしょん ) developed by Kadokawa Games. Will be released in June 2014. Around 90mm tall, 1,852 yen.
This Bath Time Collection is really cute, especially the walking Shimakaze! I have pre-ordered two walking Shimakaze already. I gonna put one in my bath room, another one in my display case. =D
There is some interesting store about the developing of this Bath Time Collection seriess. Like how they couldn’t make Shimakaze float right side up in the begining and needed to ask another company to help. And like why they use ABS instead of PVC. For those who are interested, you can read the story at the official GSC blog HERE.
