A transforming model of the Blue Steel fleet's I-401!
The second in the GOOD SMILE ARMS series is I-401 from the popular series, 'Arpeggio of Blue Steel: Ars Nova'! The model features the ability to transform between its standard mode and the deployed mode revealing the Super-Graviton Cannon (some parts need to be swapped out for the change). It is the very first complete transforming model from the Arpeggio series.
Although the model is designed to transform, it has been very carefully sculpted and intricately painted to ensure that even in standard form the shape and details of the submarine have been faithfully preserved. The mechanical look inside I-401 once deployed is also a highlight that fans are sure to enjoy. The GSA I-401 is a 1/350 scale model, which makes it very easy to display with other model ships of the same scale.
What is GOOD SMILE ARMS?
GOOD SMILE ARMS is a new articulated figure series from Good Smile Company based on the theme of 'mecha', with a focus on preserving the intricate, sharp designs of mecha and other robotic designs while still allowing great freedom of posing though careful articulation. All the painting skills GSC has acquired though years of working on figures will also be put to use in the series, allowing for colors and textures that suit the detailed sculpting, and bring out the unique presence of mecha designs. The series will also be a larger scale compared to most articulated mecha figures, and will feature robots from not only anime, but also from various games and other media. We hope you'll look forward to the upcoming line-up!
