Second "noodle stopper" figure is just as cute at work or on display
Whoever dreamed up the idea of "noodle stoppers" is a genius—and whoever decided we should be able to get two Laid-Back Camp ones knows us way too well.
This new seated figure depicts Rin Shima in her natural habitat: bundled up for a night of camping and ready to dig in to a cup of curry ramen. In addition to being a great figure, she also serves an important purpose: keeping your ramen warm while it heats up.
Rin is just the right size and weight to perch on top of your cup noodle's lid, keeping it warm and toasty until you're ready to eat. Even when you're not in the mood for ramen, the figure is detailed enough to totally be worth displaying, and has a folding camp chair so you can do so:

The figure is available for pre-order for 12,800 yen until September 12. The Nadeshiko figure is also available for pre-order until July 11.
