Nendoroid Ayasaki Hermione
The infamous trap character from Hayate no Gotoku, Nendoroid Ayasaki Hermione (Hayate) finally gets a release date! Yep, previously (s)he has been pushed back from the initial scheduled release date of December 2010. Anyway, this Max Factory-bound Nendoroid is going to be released on February 10, so you still have a plenty of time to prepare your greenies before (s)he is released. ^^
What? You did not pre-order her? Well, let me share a pic to convince you:
Magical Girl Azunyan!
Whoa … i-i-i-i-isn’t that Azunyan … in Magical Girl version!? ヽ(*ﾟдﾟ)ノ
(I am not sure that the pre-order for Hermione is still available …)
What do you think, Nendonesian? ^^
Nendoroid Mickey Mouse's parts and accessories
The legendary (albeit, frequently delayed) Nendoroid #100 Mickey Mouse has finally been released by GSC and Mikatan has posted a quick preview of the popular Walt Disney character as well. A quick overview: apparently, Mickey-san brings a lot of properties and parts, but he is lacking another face plates (expressions) aside from the pre-attached one. In any case, visit Mikatan’s blog to view more pics on Mickey-san. ^^

Nendoroid Kasuga Ayumu (Osaka) and Chiyo's father (?)
Whoaa!!! What is this? Nendoroid Osaka!? ヽ(*ﾟдﾟ)ノ
Well, Azumanga Daioh‘s Kasuga Ayumu (or better known as Osaka) is one of my top wishlist to be made into Nendoroid – although I know that the chance are next to zero. ( ╥ ﹏╥)
Anyway, apparently someone has the same thought with me and made his own version of Nendoroid Osaka instead of waiting for GSC. See more pics of her after the break. ^^
Nendoroid Kousaka Tamaki (Dragon Chronicles version)
Well, now we have a closer look of the cute pair Nendoroid Kousaka Tamaki and Yuzuhara Konomi (Dragon Chronicles version) which are bundled with the PSP game ToHeart 2: Final Dragon Chronicles. See them after the break. ^^
Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet
Touhou Project fans, gather up! Mikatan has a quick preview of the upcoming Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet. In addition to a bunch of familiar pics, you can also see her packaging now. FYI, Remilia’s little sister will be released tomorrow, so you might want to check your order on the exclusive online stores (Niconico Chokuhan, animate, Gamers, and Tora no Ana). Anyway, see Mikatan’s blog post for more of Flan’s photos. ^^

Nendoroid Aldra (Aldora) from Queen’s Blade is now available for pre-order! Here’s a description from her official page:
From the action anime packed with sexy girls, “Queen’s Blade” comes a Nendoroid of the victor of the past two Queen’s Blade tournaments and reigning queen – Aldora. She is wearing the sexy outfit she wore in battle and has her left hand bound behind her back – bound by herself as she is afraid of her own power.
You can recreate scenes where she uses both her “Petrifying Gaze” and “Secret Blades” attacks, and she also comes with extra parts which allow her to kneel down. Pick the pose you prefer and display her for all to enjoy!
Aside from Aldra, the PSP game bundle Nendoroid Konomi and Tamaki from ToHeart 2: Final Dragon Chronicles is also available for pre-order,
though I cannot see the pre-order on AmiAmi yet, but it has been available here. ^^
Nendoroid Makise Kurisu and Hirasawa Ui
Meanwhile, the recently–previewed-by-mikatan Nendoroid Makise Kurisu and Nendoroid Hirasawa Ui has just been released in Japan today. For you who have pre-ordered them, you can prepare your greenies now as your store might start sending out the bills. ^^
I guess Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Absolute HMO Edition‘s and Nendoroid Mickey Mouse‘s release should not be that far away. Hopefully these two does not get delayed.
What do you think, Nendonesian? ^^
UPDATE: ToHeart 2: Final Dragon Chronicles limited edition pre-order is already up on AmiAmi (Thanks for the tip, Belvis! ^^)
Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A's Portable: The Gears of Destiny
The upcoming sequel of last year PSP fighting game Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A’s Portable: The Battle of Aces has been announced for a while now. The game would be titled Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A’s Portable: The Gears of Destiny and the limited edition (dubbed as GOD BOX) would also contain some Nendoroid Petit as well.
I did not recognize them well, but I guess they are alternate version of Nendoroid Petit Hayate, Fate, and Nanoha – kinda looks like 2P version in Queen’s Blade Nendoroid The included Petits are: Nendoroid Petit Load, Levi, and Stern, original characters from this game – which kinda looks like alternate version of Hayate, Fate, and Nanoha. ^^
No information about its pricing nor release date though, but they have already had an official website up and running. Pay it a visit if you want to know more about the game. Now I wonder why they don’t make Nendoroid or Petit of the original heroines from this game – Amitie Florian and Kyrie Florian. ^^
Nendoroid Petit Einhart Stratos
The spin-off manga Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha ViVid gets a new Petit as well. Previously, Nendoroid Petit Takamachi Vivio has been announced as an included bonus inside ViVid volume 3. Now, Nendoroid Petit Einhart Stratos is announced to be bundled with the volume 4 of the manga.
No release date nor pricing info has been revealed yet, but I guess the price would be similar to the previous manga bundle – 1680 Yen This manga bundle has been available for pre-order at 1680 Yen and scheduled for late September release.
Well, which one are you getting, Nendonesian? ^^
UPDATE: Another spin-off manga Magical Chronicle Lyrical Nanoha Force volume 4 also includes Nendoroid Petit Lily Strosek, which is priced at 1680 Yen and scheduled for late September release as well.
(Thanks for the tip on the release and pricing info, Dorothée! ^^)
