Nendoroid Sherlock Shellingford (Sharo) with the PSP game of Tantei Opera Milky Holmes boxset has finally arrived on my desk. I have not opened the boxset yet because I am still busy with some stuff, i.e the New Year celebration party. ^^

Anyway, I will try to write up an in-depth review on this cute Nendoroid as soon as I have some spare time – probably next week. So how about yours, Nendonesian? Have you received your Sharo-chan and played with her yet?

This is Nendoroid Hatsune Miku HMO Edition’s Box

I know you have been waiting for this one, especially when GSC decided to delay its release from December 2010 to January 2011. Yep, now you know how Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Absolute HMO Edition‘s box looks like. Apparently, the box is not using a black background color like the other Nendoroid from Vocaloid, although it sure keeps the white grids. ^^

What do you think, Nendonesian? Do you like the box design?

Nendoroid Sharo: PSP Bundle vs Animation Version

A closer pic of the uncolored Nendoroid Sherlock Shellingford (Sharo/Syaro) TV Animation version from Tantei Opera Milky Holmes brings us to compare it against its PSP bundle counterpart. Well, according to my own perspective, here are some differences that I noticed on the animation version:

  • New face/expression drawing style
  • Shorter hair
  • Larger attached ribbon on the hat
  • Chubbier body
  • No magnifier – probably included as accessories
  • Shoes/boots design is slightly different
  • The pricing (obviously! ^^)

So how do you compare both of them, Nendonesian? Any other things that I missed?

Nendoroid from Gainax’ Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt

Unpainted Nendoroid Anarchy Stocking

Unpainted Nendoroid Anarchy Stocking

Fresh from Gainax live commentary Ustream: Nendoroid from Panty and Stockings with Garterbelt are already in schedule. The broadcast only showed a glimpse of uncolored Nendoroid Anarchy Stocking though – not to mention that it is not a close up shot, so we could not get a more-detailed view on her. Nevertheless, I cannot wait to see how the final version would turn out later. (… and I have not watched the anime yet ^^)
