Partially colored Nendoroid Ika Musume
Fresh from Yukiwo Ageta’s tweet earlier – Nendoroid Ika Musume‘s hair is already shaped and colored, while her body parts are scattered on the table. Anyway, why are there two Ika Musume bodies? No clue yet, but one thing for sure: Nendoroid Ika Musume is progressing quickly and we should see an official announcement real soon – hopefully. ^^
Note: This post would be updated periodically as soon as new photos and info are available, prior to the official announcement. So keep an eye to this post if you want to stay informed regarding Nendoroid Ika Musume’s development. ^^

Nendoroid Kagamine Rin
Since I am currently in holiday mode, I have a plenty of time to write some reviews during my holidays, so you could expect some reviews coming up this week. ^^
Nendoroid Kagamine Rin finally joins her Vocaloid sisters to be reviewed after Hatsune Miku and Megurine Luka. A little biography on Rin: she is the twin sister of Kagamine Len and their family name are a combination of “mirror” (kagami) and “sound” (ne), while Rin and Len means “right” and “left” respectively.
OK, now that you know who Rin is, let’s get directly to the review after the break. ^^
Nendoroid Ika Musume (prototype) with a Santa Claus figure
I were really busy (read: family time ^^) these recent days that I forgot to check my Twitter on Christmas Day. Yep, this news should be posted two days ago …. but anyway, here are some more photos on Nendoroid Ika Musume prototype celebrating her first Christmas with Mr. Santa as tweeted by Yukiwo Ageta. ^^
New expression from Nendoroid Ika Musume prototype
Whoa!! Is that a new expression (face plate) for Nendoroid Ika Musume? Somehow it seems similar to one of Nendoroid Takane Manaka‘s expression. ^^
Hopefully Nendoroid Ika Musume would be announced officially real soon – probably within the first few days of the new year? ^^
Design of Nendoroid Plus Saber Extra and Caster
I rarely post about Nendoroid Plus Plushie, but I make an exception this time. Well, a design drawing of Nendoroid Plus Plushie Saber Extra and Caster from the PSP game Fate/Extra has popped up in 2ch. Each of them priced at 3675 Yen and the pre-order will start on January 25, 2011 until February 23, 2011. Nendoroid Plus Plushie Saber Extra and Caster is made by Gift and scheduled for April 2011 release.
Well, I am not too fond of plushie, so I will skip this one, but I do hope GSC and TYPE-MOON would release the regular Nendoroid in the future though. What about you, Nendonesian? Are you getting them? ^^
Nendoroid Petit K-ON! Set
So you have been collecting Nendoroid from K-ON! series? Now you can further complete your K-ON! collection with Nendoroid Petit K-ON! Set which has been released as of today.

Kagamikku also enjoyed her Christmas Eve ^^
Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given – when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes. – Joan Winmill Brown
Nendonesia, representing its contributors, would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and happy holidays! ^^
