In-depth Dissection of How Creators Design Plastic Models

In this the third episode in the series, the discussion turns to the development phase of creating VOLTRON. Mr. Nonaka uses different approach to the design and development phase than most do. He puts his originality into the design, not just basing his design on the materials given to him.

His next step in the development phase is thinking about the motions that are desired for the toy. Should the arms move certain ways, the legs, etc. Once that is determined they can divide the parts as Nonaka would image the image of the poses. He will then continue to test the product to be sure it is easy for the user to pose.
