Nendoroid Jiei-tan and Army-san?
More and more Nendoroids news are piling up with the clock is ticking for upcoming WonFes. Well, what do we have here? Hmm … another Nendoroids from Magical Marine Pixel Maritan series; it’s a new version of Nendoroid Jiei-tan (Air Force version?) and Nendoroid Army-san. No further details is revealed yet, but you can expect more information at tomorrow’s WonFes – hopefully. ^^;
Update: New photo/scan after the break
Black ★ Rock Shooter theme
To celebrate the release of (first?) Black ★ Rock Shooter animation, we decided to change the theme header to B★RS style. What do you think about it? Kindly leave your comment. ^^
Update: The RSS icon at the upper-left side in the header is also B★RS-ed. ^^
Nendoroid Dead Master in the making
Well, we already know that Nendoroid Black ★ Rock Shooter’s release date has been delayed until mid August and now GSC is teasing us with another Nendoroid from the series – Thanks GSC! ^^ The photo shown above doesn’t reveal the Nendoroid’s face, but it’s clear that she is Nendoroid Dead Master. There is another Nendoroid that may get her debut at this WonFes after the break.
Taken from a magazine scan
It seems like GSC has prepared some new releases for upcoming months. Here we have a new version Disappearance of Haruhi version of Nendoroid Nagato Yuki (with coat, scarf, glasses, and piece of paper) and Nendoroid Cattleya (Queen’s Blade) along with her so-called son. The new Nagato will be available for 3,500 Yen on November 2010, while Cattleya’s details are still unknown. Let’s see how this will turn out soon (preferably at WonFes). ^^
Nendoroid Petit vs Normal
In a glance, Nendoroid Petit, also known as “Nendoroid Puchi” is merely a smaller version of Nendoroid. Is that all? Well, we’re going to have a in-depth deeper view about Petits, including their characteristics and differences with normal Nendoroids.
Nendoroid Suzumiya Haruhi - work in progress
Today, we’ll view Nendoroid from another perspective. Yep, we’re going to discuss about the folks behind Nendoroid: the sculptors. Unlike most model kits (Gundam, Macross, etc.) which are already fully manufactured by machine, Nendoroids still have “human touches” despite being mass-produced in the factory. OK, let’s dig further on some famous Nendoroid sculptors.
Miku HMO-Pawlab version
Well, this one has not been confirmed officially – we have a couple of unconfirmed stuff recently ^^. If 2chan netizen is to be believed, then GSC will release a new version of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku courtesy of HMO and Studio Pawlab. I bet this new Miku will be released as limited product – and possibly a bundled one. Let’s wait for further details from GSC. ^^
Update: Cute face plate photo after the break.
Update 2: Miku with megane (glasses) spotted. Photo after the break.
Nendoroid Ayanami Rei?
OK, I have to say that there is no official confirmation about this. Some folks from 2chan posted this blurry photos of Nendoroid Ayanami Rei from Neon Genesis Evangelion. If the news is true, then Rei will be the first Evangelion Nendoroid ever produced by Good Smile Company (and you can safely bet that Asuka and Mari would be joining her too in the future). Well let’s see how GSC will respond to this rumor. We’ll keep you updated. ^^
Update: More photos after the break.
Update 2: A rumor suggested that Nendoroid Ayanami Rei will be manufactured by GSC and Grande Works, and it will be a limited item – only 50 pcs will be released (!!!!!!!). The price is estimated to be about 10,000 Yen.
Update 3: It seems that GSC is in no way affiliated with this Nendoroid version of Ayanami Rei as it’s produced solely by Grande Works. This Nendoroid is merely a garage kit – in which will come pre-painted and you have to use glue to attach her body parts instead of using joints (or so they said). I guess I’ll wait for official version by GSC then. (Thanks to Reitai for pointing this out)
Nendoroid Dream C Club
A rumor suggested that one of Xbox 360’s best selling dating simulation game, Dream C Club is going to partner with Good Smile Company to produce a Nendoroid form of Nao, one of the hostess in the game. There is still no exact release date nor pricing, but we’ll keep you updated on that. ^^
