Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Yukata version Natsutsumaki

This news pretty much comes as a surprise yesteday, as GSC announced that Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Yukata version Natsutsumaki and Nendoroid Kaname Madoka: Maiko version will be on sale exclusively at several events outside Japan.

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku is back in an elegant yukata once again!

From the ‘Character Vocal Series 01: Hatsune Miku’ comes a Nendoroid of Hatsune Miku wearing a all-new red yukata! The lovely yukata has a design which makes use of the ‘natsutsumaki’ flower, and her famous twin-tails are just as cute as ever! Even during the hot summer, Miku is ready to perform for everyone!

She comes with three different expressions including a standard smiling face, a charming winking expression and a chibi drooling face for all the delicious food she’ll find during the Summer festivals! She also comes with some extra items to ensure she has fun at the festival, including a candy apple and a balloon yo-yo!

This lovely Miku in summer Yukata is priced at 3200 Yen.

Nendoroid Kaname Madoka: Maiko version

Nendoroid Kaname Madoka is back, but now she is dressed as a maiko (apprentice geisha), officially called as Nendoroid Kaname Madoka: Maiko version.

Nendoroid Madoka Kaname is back, this time dressed as an elegant maiko!

From ‘Puella Magi Madoka Magica’ comes a Nendoroid of Madoka Kaname dressed as an elegant maiko. She comes with three different expression parts including a standard expression, a smiling expression and a gentle expression with closed eyes.

Optional parts include a Grief Box as well as two Japanese umbrella parts. She also comes with alternate sitting parts, which you can use together with the gentle expression to create a cute bowing pose. It’s a different appearance for Madoka, but one that fans are sure to enjoy!

Bringing a lot of parts along, the cute maiko Madoka is priced at 3800 Yen.

Anyway, here are a list of events that will have these two lovely Nendoroids on sale:

Design for Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version Has Been Decided

Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version

So the Nico Nico Live Broadcast by GSC dubbed as “Hatsune Miku no Jikan” has been broadcasted earlier. There are a couple of Miku stuff there, but we are going to focus to the Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version first.

As you may have known, the live broadcast also served as an election to choose the base design for next year’s Nendoroid Snow Miku. In the end of the live election session, design #8 got the most votes there.

Wearing the witch hat and the cape/coat with crystal staff, she looks pretty plain classic to my taste, but I guess the voters might see her with “simple is the best” in mind. XD

Pet for Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version

Meanwhile, the election also voted for the best pet to accompany the next year’s snow diva. The design getting the most votes is design #7 – the rabbit fairy. XD

Well, what do you think about the design, Nendonesian?

Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version

Since 2012, it is a kind of tradition to hold an annual contest to determine Nendoroid Snow Miku’s design with a defined theme. Yep, Nendoroid Snow Miku: Fluffy Coat version and Strawberry White Kimono version are products of that contest in the last two years.

Fast-forward to today, and we are facing the contest run for Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version and this year’s theme is magical girl and pet – it certainly reminds me of that particular magical girl and her contact-obsessed companion. XD

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian?

Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2013 version Gets Official Photo

Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2013 version

The first official press photo of Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2013 version has been posted by GSC. The new Racing costume looks great, although in my opinion, it kinda looks like a mix of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Append version and the previous Racing Miku Nendoroids.

Unfortunately, there are not photo of the optional expressions and accessories – the parasol and Nendoroid car – but I guess it should be available shortly.

The original illustration

For you who wanted to get her, you have to “apply” for select sponsorship package, which is available at Good Smile Racing Global website starting on March 21 (18:00 JST) until May 7 (12:00 JST).
