Date is getting impatient there

Date is getting impatient there

So you have been waiting for the first ever Nendoroid from Sengoku BASARA series? Well, it seems that you have to wait even further as Nendoroid Masamune Date is getting delayed yet again – from February to March 2011. In any case, here is the complete listing of updated release schedule as posted by GSC:

  • Nendoroid Ayasaki Hermione (Hayate no Gotoku) – February 10 (released)
  • Nendoroid Kousaka Kirino (Ore no Imouto Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai) – February 28
  • Nendoroid Sanzenin Nagi (Hayate no Gotoku) – March
  • Nendoroid Masamune Date (Sengoku BASARA) – March (delayed from February)

Personally, I prefer that GSC would delay the release with improved quality control on the Nendoroid, rather than release them on schedule without proper QC. What do you say, Nendonesian? ^^

Nendoroid Sherlock Shellingford's epic expression

If you think that I overused this epic face plate of Nendoroid Sherlock Shellingford (Sharo), then kindly pardon me. The shy expression is simply too adorable and it could be attached to any Nendoroid to create a super cute expression on them. So … based on that fact, it won Nendonesia Face Plate of The Month Award for January 2011. (≧∇≦)/
