Get your cups and Santa hats for Rinkya 2016 Holiday Special! Come here near the crackling fire place under the shade of the great tree and sit a while and listen! Holidays truly are a special time of the year. A time to reminisce, a time to be reminded of what is truly important- our families and the ones closest to us. May we never take them for granted. So, go! Celebrate and love. And if you want to make this time a tad merrier, here are some suggestion from our gift bag of figures that were released during this year.
5. Nendoroid Shoyo Hinata Figure
“It’s painful. I want to stop. When I feel that way, I take a step forwards.”
From Good Smile Company, we get an amazing new Nendoroid figure based on Haikyuu. the hit volleyball series that has seized the hearts of the fans from the first episode and hasn’t let go since. Karasuno High’s ultimate decoy Shouyou “Shrimp” Hinata, is the character that the Good Smile Company choose to immortalize in figure form. Hinata was sculpted by Shichibee and Nendoron and was released into the world in January 2016. The 10 cm (3.9 inches) tall, ATBC-PVC and ABS figure comes with plethora additions. Firstly, Hinata comes with a volleyball and a net so he can step onto the court whenever you wish it! The Shrimp comes with three different facial expressions: a confident, a cheerful and smiling and a super excited expression. If that is not enough for you he comes with base that resembles a volleyball court! This figure can be yours for about 10,850 yen (~92 US dollars).
