Customized 1993 TAKARA SAM. SPIRITS Nakoruru 11" Doll
Master Tasuke
i just won this classic little maiden off the bay, i got an unbelievable steal on her, a princely $13.85 shipped.
a few years back, i did actually catch her for as little as $60 shipped, once, but i had had to pass on her then.
that was the best price on her i had seen by far to that point, and i sure didn't ever believe i'd ever find any better one,
and most certainly nothing at all like this unbelievable bargain basement rate that i just couldn't pay out fast enough for!!!

being my favorite SNK character, and one of my favorite female video game characters ever,
i've wanted this doll for a while now. she'll be seeing all due TLC when she arrives, including an OBITSU body all her own...

with a NATURAL SKIN tone OBITSU body, this TAKARA should rate pretty close to the arguably superior DAIKI KOGYO brand Nakoruru;

- alas, her facial tone does not match too well with the OBITSU NATURAL SKIN type. still and all, She looks fantastic...


i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll310/shaorin-chan/Anime%20Dolls%207/Nakorinhearts9-6-20141_zps34d09eee.jpg


as it would probably be obvious to any owner of this doll, i have made modifications to make her clothes fit more naturally,
and have replaced her solid plastic sheathed blade with a detailed metal 1/6 short katana replica that works with her quite beautifully.

also, -as probably quite obvious to any Nakoruru fan out there- there are distinct differences between the styling of Nakorin's Pantaloons
between SAMURAI SPIRITS I and II, with the pair supplied with the doll being based on the first entry in the series.

the redesign for II is a much fuller and longer (fully down to her ankles) pair of Pantaloons that i happen to prefer,
so i shall be making Nakorin here another pair modeled from the II design, so i can be having both styles readily at hand...

there were at least two versions of this doll TAKARA produced in '93; normal and 2P purple

far as i know, the normal was a full general sales release, while the 2P was some sort of GAMEST magazine exclusive (JPN general ARCADE and HOME video gaming magazine)

i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll310/shaorin-chan/Anime%20Dolls%207/Nakoruru_zpsbab1a74e.jpg


TAKARA
produced two more SPIRITS dolls in the late-90's or so, one of Nakoruru, and one of her sister Rimururu;

i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll310/shaorin-chan/Anime%20Dolls%207/samsp-limaruru_zps0b7c22e9.jpg


DAIKI KOGYO, nominally a resin model company, tried their hand at finished character dolls at one time (late 90's/early 00's, i presume)
with two 27cm. Nakoruru dolls of their own, both with different outfits from some of the later SPIRITS entries (i forget which ones)

in VOLKS corp's pre-Dollfie era, they had a fairly extensive line of very small scale character dolls they called the "Ultimate Figure Series"
among them, a lone Nakoruru from the SPIRITS era where Nakorin was re-imagined and/or reincarnated as a tiny forest Sprite;

i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll310/shaorin-chan/Anime%20Dolls%207/VOLKSNakoruru200_zps920053c6.png



finally, there are these dolls, which i can only assume are also TAKARA editions of either limited or general release, or perhaps merely one-off customs;

Not really into doll collectables, but I'm glad you were able to expand your collection.

Did you say that Nako has a real metal mini Katana? Sounds dangerous.

What's up with the picture of the Neo-Geo AES all opened up? You should get it modded for component and get UniBios.

Have you bought any new AES games? I know that Angie talked about SSI, SSII , NAM and Magician Lord a lot.

Hopefully you two were able to acquire more titles. Maybe invest in a MVS>AES converter?

yeah, i have since modded my AES for L/R STEREO RCA audio output, but i really need to get around to getting it off to someone good with UNIBIOS installation.
much as i dislike the look and feel of MVS carts, with the outrageous sums AES editions of some of me and my sisters' most desired NEO entries command these days,
it would seem MVS/AES conversion is the only feasible route for either of us, besides emulation...

sorry about that, been busy!!

anyway, the schoolgirl Sailor Suit up there was appropriated from an old TAKARA 1/6 character doll from the early-90's KONAMI dating sim series "Tokimeki Memorial"

i had to make longer, fuller sleeves to fit Nakoruru's better proportioned OBITSU BODY arms,
and a pink bow to replace the shoddy looking yellow one, but that aside, the uniform was carried over pretty much as was;

So uhm, where do you display them.....?
 
Master Tasuke
on my computer table, best place i currently have. perhaps i can get myself into a better house someday
that would allow them dedicated display shelving, but for the indeterminate future, i have to make do...

i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll310/shaorin-chan/Anime%20Dolls%207/Anime%20Harem%20Johns%2012-16-15%202_zpstqaxobcq.jpg

in any case, i really ought to concentrate more on building up my very rudimentary SPIRITS/SHODOWN collection.
a fine place to start, i think, would be the Yuki Miyoshi Manga series VIZ had translated for U.S. market.
if i could find the full original printed graphic novel in both JPN original and U.S. translation,
i feel i'd be well on my way to rounding myself out a very nice little respectable collection...
