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?
Box of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Absolute HMO Edition
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 otherNendoroidfrom Vocaloid, although it sure keeps the white grids. ^^
What do you think, Nendonesian? Do you like the box design?
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
Larger attached ribbon on the hat
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?
We will leave 2010 and begin a new year 2011 in a few days. Let’s take a look back for a moment and kindly help us choose a Nendoroid to be awarded Nendonesia’s Best Nendoroid of 2010. Yep, we have chosen ten Nendoroid nominees for you to choose. Kindly cast your vote in the poll below and if he/she is not included in the nominee list, then choose “Others” and post it in the comment section. ^^
So the nominees are … *drum rolls*
Note: The poll has been closed. Thank you for your votes, Nendonesian! ^^
Nendonesian, choose your favorite Nendoroid for 2010! ^^
Otaku blogger Danny Choo visited GSC office a few days ago, and he found several Black Rock Strength figurines laying there, including the Nendoroid Black Rock Strength that was announced back then in GSC’s Special BRS Christmas event. More photos after the break.
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 ^^)
Note that it is still a speculation, but a new Nendoroid Hatsune Miku might be on the way. The face pictured above reminds me of Nendoroid Saber’s face though. Well then, kindly go to the source site and see for yourself as I am not too sure about this either – my Japanese reading skill is really really bad. >_<
Uncolored Nendoroid Sherlock Shellingford (TV Animation version)
Yep, you read the title: there are more Nendoroid (regular-sized) from Tantei Opera Milky Holmes. In the pic tweeted by Bushiroad’s Milky Holmes Twitter account, there is an uncolored Nendoroid Sherlock Shellingford (Sharo) in TV animation version. It looks like this version of Sharo will be priced at 3000 Yen and they said that she would be different compared to the bundled-with-PSP-game version which has just been released several weeks ago.
Oh and did I mention that Nendoroid Nero, Elly, and Cordelia are also on the schedule? Yep, if you see in the above pic, there is a little board with a drawing of the three other member of Milky Holmes inside it? Here is a zoomed-in version in case you do not notice it. ^^
Nendoroid Nero, Elly, and Cordelia
It is not known whether they would be released as a non-limited non-exclusive Nendoroid though, but hopefully they would. ^^
What about you, Nendonesian? Thinking of getting them too? ^^
Mika-tan’s last blog post for 2010 reveals Good Smile Corporation’s top selling products for 2010. Nendoroid Black Rock Shooter claims the runner-up while her figma counterpart claims the first place. Nendoroid and figma are surely gaining huge popularity (and sales) boost in 2010. ^^
Anyway, TYPE-MOON’s Comiket 79exclusive Petit from Mahou Tsukai no Hako has their own box now, as displayed in Mika-tan’s blog post. This Petit set is officially dubbed Nendoroid Petit Mahou Tsukai no Hako Set, featuring Nendoroid Petit Hibino Hibiki and Katsuragi Chikagi (also known as Hibichika). Aside from the Petits, this set also includes a booklet (one page is written by Mika-tan) and priced at 3000 Yen. More info can be found in TYPE-MOON’s Comiket page. ^^
