【Nationwide】Plarail, “Shinkalion Hello Kitty”, which transforms the Hello Kitty Shinkansen into a “robot”, will be released in March.

“Hello Kitty Shinkansen”, a West Japan Railway Company designed by Sanrio “Hello Kitty”, and “Shinkansen Deformation Robo Shinkalion” collaborated. From March 2020, as a Pla-rail “Shinkalion Hello Kitty” that transforms into a robot, there will be a toy specialty store nationwide, a department store / volume store toy sales floor, e-store, a Plarail specialty store “Plarail Shop”, and an official Takara Tomy e-store, “Takara Tomy” Malls, and some are sold at Sanrio shops.

“Hello Kitty Shinkansen” marked by a pink ribbon.

The Hello Kitty Shinkansen, which began operating in 2018, is a Shinkansen with a pink ribbon, designed under the concept of “connecting and connecting” areas. Its lovely appearance, of course, also features the leading kitty.

Hello Kitty Shinkansen becomes a large robot ?!

In this collaboration, we docked the “Hello Kitty Shinkansen” with the character content “Shinkansen Deformation Robot Shinkalion”, which transforms an existing Shinkansen into a robot. Shinkalion Hello Kitty, a large robot with the power to make people around happy, was born. In addition to the impactful visuals, you can enjoy it by transforming it into three modes: “Shinkansen mode“, “Shinkarion mode“, and “Hello Kitty mode“.

Shinkansen Mode

The “Hello Kitty Shinkansen” is reproduced in 4-car train to match the “Plarail” standard. It is also possible to roll by hand on the “Plarail” rail.

Shinkalion Mode

By transforming the four cars of the “Hello Kitty Shinkansen,” the robot changes to “Shinkalion mode.” Attached parts “Singous Spear” can also be provided.

Hello Kitty Mode

When the Hello Kitty face is covered with the motif “Hello Kitty Mask” and given a “ribbon stick”, it transforms into “Hello Kitty Mode”. “Ribbon cane” is a ribbon-shaped cane with a fine lamé, and it is a setting that “can make everyone in the place happy at a stroke”.

Power up with optional parts

When “cross merging” with the leading car of the Deluxe Shinkalion series sold separately, the power is increased to a large Shinkalion consisting of all five vehicles. By attaching the head parts “Headgear” with the motif of Hello Kitty’s ears and ribbon, the appearance after merging can also be produced in a lovely way.
