The GSC Site on April 1st 2008

Who is Gumako? She was created only for the GSC’s April Fools back in 2008. She was supposed to be there for only 1 day. But she was very well received and has now become GSC’s mascot character! For your information, those tentacle thingys on her head are Udon!!!

——Description from Manufacturer——

Gumako comes from the country of Udon and is ready to show everyone the power of udon!

The first product in the charity project dubbed ‘Cheerful Japan!’ is a Nendoroid of a character that was born as an April Fools joke in 2008 – but went on to become a full-fledged mascot of Good Smile Company – Gumako!

She comes with a variety of optional parts as well, including a bowl of udon and a content ‘udon expression’ for her to show just how much she is enjoying it. She also comes with a Nendoroid Petite sized version of the GSC-Seijin mascot. She uses a posable stand which allows you to pose her soaring through the air – or in a number of other creative poses!

  • For each sale made, Good Smile Company will be donating 1000JPY to the Japan Red Cross Society
  • The images above are of a figure still in development, and the final product may differ slightly.
