Four Japanese Life Playsets! & Tourabu co-deFour Japanese Life Playsets! & Tourabu co-de

LehstLehst6 months agoReview
Finally, yesterday some items came home! I waited so long for this! (TvT)

Yay~~~! The Nendoroid playsets: Japanese Life, and Touken Ranbu nendoroid co-de figures!

I used to message GSC with re-release requests for the playsets. I didn't start collecting nendos until long after their first two releases in 2009 and 2010. When the Touken Ranbu nendoroids started up, and were clearly popular, my hopes became reality! \(^o^)/

Soooooo happy I could finally see this in person. I have two of each set, so that's a total of four playsets. The tatami line up beautifully. <3

Unfortunately, they can't be rearranged with too many options, because the walls don't all connect to the floor the same way, and the mats have to line up correctly, otherwise a mat will have an unfinished edge. But as I have shown here, the walls with the doors have the same peg slots, so they can be switched to the opposite set's mat. If I wanted, I could have used two plain back wall pieces, instead of one plain and one with the recessed shelves.

In case you aren't already aware, this is how two sets of playsets are supposed look: mfc link. The open front does not have any peg holes to officially add another row of sets, like I did with mine.

They weren't really designed to be arranged this way, so I opted to use some tape to keep the floor from shifting while arranging the furniture. Also, it helps stablize the doors on the end since it is only pegged to the floor (and without a perpendicular wall.) Each set comes with two walls, so two aren't pictured.

Having a big room is so nice! And having double the food rocks. It always makes me sad when I have only one tea cup. How can anyone drink together when they don't have matching dishware? :o

The room itself is amazing, but let's get some nendoroids in here!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Lehst1502288251.jpeg

The nendoroids I posted here are swaps. I have them using the Touken Ranbu co-de bodies, but put Dramatical Murder characters on them. Well, the one on the far left isn't an official combination, hehe. ^^;; Can you guess who?

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Lehst1502288249.jpeg

The downside with co-de is that the base has to be under their feet. I much prefer standard nendoroid base arms, because they let their feet touch the floor. ...nevermind the fact everyone still has their shoes on... but such is nendoroid life. orz

Now, where did Yasusada, Kashuu, and Mikazuki go?

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Lehst1502288253.jpeg

Oh! They went and got changed! lol. Don't they look surprisingly good
in modern clothes? o(*゚▽゚*)o

Another fun shot~

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Lehst1502288255.jpeg

lol, there's no need to worry about bases if you manage to get nendoroid sitting parts! Also check out the man at the door, he's borrowing Kashuu's scarf! Doesn't it look so nice with the formal suit? o(*>ω<*)o

So with a room this big, how many friends can comfortably fit inside? :3

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Lehst1502292347.jpeg

Quite a few it seems! And I could easily fit more characters or accessories in,
but it wouldn't photograph as well. Sometime I'd love to arrange a
grand house party though! ヾ(≧∇≦)ゞ woo~!

I'm really looking forward to the possibilities with this playset! It easily provides an excellent setting for photographs and gives me new ideas too.

Thanks for reading! ^^

lotus (6 months ago) #24542423Ahhh this is so cool!! I've been eyeing these two sets too, but they're not high priority since I don't really have space to display my figures, but I love how nice and big it looks with four sets together!! I did buy a kotatsu re-ment set a while ago, that would go great with this set :3 Loved seeing your nendo swaps/customs too!Somehow I missed this comment. Thanks so much for visiting my post! I'm happy you enjoyed the pics. ^^

Yeah I'm still not sure where I'm going to set this. Right now it is on my nightstand, but I can't really keep it there lol. And ooooh the kotatsu! I love looking at what people do with re-ment but I still haven't collected any. I sure would like to (someday???) lol

Lehst (6 months ago) #24539463Hearing you approve of Sei makes me so happy! Still gonna be awhile before I can even attempt his default outfit orz. But I sure got lucky with the hair.
I've seen some cool Tourabu swaps and they tempt me every time lol. I'm buying Izumi no kami Kanesada just for his body to use on either Koujaku or, more likely, a member of his Ribsteez team. xD If you do any swaps, be sure to link me sometime! (*v*)/
You got his hat though so that's a start :D Please keep me updated on your customs! I rarely scroll through pics here OTL
There are so many times where I'm tempted to get a nendo just for certain parts but sigh~ nendos are getting so pricey ;A; Sure, will do! Though it'd just be swapping. I have no skills in modding figures at all X'D

SkyBlue (6 months ago) #24539247I literally squealed when I saw Sei! ^^ Glad they were nearby then, they look awesome! Then again I'm weak to DMMd XD Now I'm tempted to swap my DMMd and TRO nendos...Hearing you approve of Sei makes me so happy! Still gonna be awhile before I can even attempt his default outfit orz.

Lehst (6 months ago) #24532345I knew if anyone was going to mention Sei, it would be you! <3 Yeah, that's him, tho I didn't mod the faceplate yet. He was borrowing Clear's until I got a duplicate recently. Now I can remove the moles and darken the eye brows. ^^
I wasn't planning on using those hakama and Mikazuki's outfit for DMMd, but I did some quick head swaps with whomever was nearby. I was surprised at how they fit pretty well; I'm in love with Koujaku there. I'm glad I have an extra of both the body and the hair (cuz I broke his hairpin orz, but I like it better without the pin here) so I'm gonna keep him like this. ^^ Thanks so much for viewing! :D

Seiki (6 months ago) #24519062Cool to see someone put 4 together like this. I was debating doing the same as 2 felt a bit small for what I wanted. Though I currently don't even have all of the Nendoroids I'd put in them, so lol.Leo_Otaku (6 months ago) #24527676LOVE this. Super amazing set up I never knew how cool these wereI'm glad you guys liked the photos! It really is a fun room.
Yeah, having 4 instead of 2 gives you more angles to take pics, as well as fit more characters in. Good luck with your nendo-collecting, Seiki!

SkyBlue (6 months ago) #24520121Very nice set-up! God, they look adorbs in traditional outfits~ (is that your custom Sei??)

Nuss (6 months ago) #24510471that's such a good idea! the room looks so much better like this(and it's huge!)!
and i love your swaps! they really fit well and everyone looks so nice!
Thanks !! ^w^
Darkluna (6 months ago) #24512166Awesome idea! My own Japanese School Life playsets are still packed away waiting for Goodsmile Company order to arrive before I use them for a photoshoot.
May I ask whose body Mikazuki is using in the modern clothes picture?
I hope you get to play with yours soon! Mikazuki is using the body from Kai link.
Merlle88 (6 months ago) #24513555No chance for Figmas to fit on the playset right? :(Some people still use figmas in it, but they are a bit tall. You can get a little creative with the camera, or have them sit, but figma standard height is like all the way up to the top of the door. Ideally there would be another inch of height to the doors, and walls, for a more natural looking gap.
