Engrish Header of Mikatan's Blog
GSC staff, Mikatan mentioned in her Twitter that she has just opened a new blog, which is (supposedly) an English version of her current blog. Well, there are nothing there for the time being, except an Engrish version of her blog’s header. Here’s the address in case you want to pay the blog a visit later on: http://ameblo.jp/gsc-mikatan-e/
At least I don’t have to translate her blog post into English via Google Translate in the future. ^^
Nendoroid Miku x Luka
GSC has just announced the official release date for re-issue of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku and Megurine Luka, which is October 13, 2010. Yep, it’s about two weeks away, so you’d better secure your reservation A.S.A.P if you want them (is it already too late now?). Meanwhile, you can also check our review on Miku-chan and Luka-chan for more drooling goodies before laying your hand on the real one later. ^^

Nendoroid Date Masamune
Almost out of nowhere, Nendoroid Date Masamune from Sengoku BASARA is suddenly available for pre-order starting today! Yep, the last time we saw him was at this year’s summer WonFes back then on July. OK, he will bring along three face plates, unique arm parts with posable elbow joints and a set of folded arms. He also has his six katana sheath by his side, and all six swords can be removed and equipped to recreate his epic battle scenes in Sengoku BASARA. Masamune is slated for release on late January 2011 with a price tag of 3500 Yen.
Nendoroid Ayasaki Hermione
So you have pre-ordered Nendoroid Katsura Hinagiku? Now you can reserve the main character of Hayate no Gotoku, Ayasaki Hayate …. dressed as a girl inside Nendoroid Ayasaki Hermione. He comes with three face plates, from his standard expression, to a crying expression and of course the most important embarrassed face. To complete his girly wardrobe he also comes with a bunny-ear Alice band and of course his magical rod! But for those of you who really want him in his standard butler form, an extra body featuring his butler clothes is also included.
FYI, this Nendoroid is made by Max Factory, instead of Good Smile Company, thus the higher price tag of 3800 Yen – the same as Nendoroid Katsura Hinagiku. Hermione is set to release on late December 2010 to complete your
bloody exciting year’s end.
Nendoroid Hirasawa Ui
I guess you know that she’s coming. Yep, Nendoroid Hirasawa Ui is available for pre-order starting today. A total of three expressions are included: A smiling face, an ecstatic expression as well as a dizzy expression. She also comes with both her middle school and the Sakuragaoka High school uniforms, so you can display her wearing either one! Also included is the ribbon used by Yui in the last episode of K-ON! first season as a disguise, allowing you to recreate her disguise. She’s available for 3500 Yen and scheduled to release on late January 2011.
So, have you made your mind? Gotta catch ’em all! ^^
Nendoroid Jiei-tan (Air force version)
First, the development of Nendoroid Army-san is progressing smoothly and it will be finished on October, hence Hobby Japan will start taking up pre-orders on October 25, by then you will also know her price tag. Anyway, she will be released on March 2011 – same month as Nendoroid Jiei-tan (Air force version).
Anyway, enjoy more photos of the new Jiei-tan after the break – courtesy of Hobby Japan.
Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet
So you’ve been itching to complete the member of Scarlet Devil Mansion? Now you can do so, as Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet is officially available for pre-order. Aside from the prism shards attached to her wing, this little sister of Remilia Scarlet also brings along her weapon, Lævateinn – which doesn’t even look like a weapon to me … ^^;
Anyway, you can get more info about her on the official page, or reserve her for 3000 Yen directly from these online shops:
As the previous Touhou Project Nendoroids, Flan is also a limited item, so you should secure your pre-order A.S.A.P to get her on January 2011. ^^
Nendoroid Jiei-tan (Air Force version)

Nendoroid Hirasawa Ui
Some fine folks at 2chan posted a few scans of this month’s hobby magazine which revealed more info regarding upcoming Nendoroids. First up is Nendoroid Hirasawa Ui, who is Hirasawa Yui’s sister from K-ON!. According to the scan, she apparently will come included with two kind of uniforms, a school bag, and at least three face plates. She is scheduled to release on January 2011 with a price tag of 3500 Yen – and I guess her pre-order will be up in the near future. ^^
BRS-themed di:stage Cover Skin from GSC x MF
Earlier today, I received a letter containing a BRS-themed di:stage Cover Skin from WHL4U committee (GSC x MF). It is given for free as a prize for participating in the photo contest which was held on early July. Since I don’t own a di:stage (yet), I just put it up along with BRS and snapped a few photos of them, which you can see after the break. ^^;
Nendoroid Megurine Luka and Hatsune Miku
Mikatan shared an interesting information today: re-issue of Vocaloid-duo – Nendoroid Hatsune Miku and Nendoroid Megurine Luka. This is a great (and rare) chance for you who haven’t had either Miku or Luka, you can purchase them at standard price. Well, they are scheduled to be re-released next month, October 2010 for 3000 Yen and 3500 Yen respectively.
Note that you have to stay alert on the reservation information which will be posted in the next few days. You wouldn’t want to see both of them sold out due to the high demand, just like what happened in KAITO re-issue which was out-of-stock in 15 minutes at AmiAmi. Hmm … I’m thinking to purchase one more Miku for my own collection … ^^;
Update: It’s already up for pre-order at your favorite online figure/figurine shops – Miku is already (temporarily) sold out at AmiAmi.
Working!! manga volume 9 bundled with Petit Taneshima Popura

This kawaii Popura and the limited edition manga will be priced at 1600 Yen and they are scheduled to release on March 25, 2011. Ah … I hope GSC will also release this one in regular-sized Nendoroid … and please make Inami-chan too. ^^;
Update: Amazon Japan has put this up for pre-order.
Update 2: AmiAmi has started taking reservation for this one. (Thanks, Jojo!)
