Nendoroid Yagyu Jubei: Opening version
Nendoroid Yagyu Jubei: Opening version from Hyakka Ryoran: Samurai Girls came out of nowhere to make herself available for pre-order today! 3 face plates (2 of those are epic IMHO ^^) and beautiful hairdo and clothing, plus a pair of removable samurai swords came along with Jubei-chan’s package. I guess FREEing did a good job with Jubei-chan’s design this time – IMHO, it is better than their Nendoroid from Queen’s Blade series. In any case, she would be released on July with a price tag of 3500 Yen. ^^
Meanwhile, Nendoroid Strength from Black Rock Shooter series is also available with the same schedule (July) and pricing (3500 Yen) as Jubei-chan’s today. She has been previewed by Mikatan on Tuesday, so you might want to pay it a visit. ^^;
Well, which one are you getting, Nendonesian? ^^

Nendoroid Petit Tio Plato
Nihon Falcom has confirmed that the bundled Nendoroid in their upcoming PSP game Eiyuu Densetsu: Zero no Kiseki are indeed Nendoroid Petit (as some commenters have pointed it out in my previous post ^^). There you go, you can now see how Nendoroid Petit Tio Plato looks like in completely-painted version. ^^
Nendoroid Asakura Nemu, along with her "family"
Apparently, Nendoroid Asakura Nemu has been released as of today and here we are presented with a pic of the happy Asakura family from D.C. Yep, she is available for purchase at Japanese retail stores starting today … and for you who have pre-ordered her, prepare to pay your bills soon. ^^
Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? ^^
Nendoroid Homura Akemi
So you have been waiting for Nendoroid from Puella Magi Madoka Magica? GSC has already displayed Nendoroid Kaname Madoka back then in Winter WonFes 2011, and we have already covered custom Nendoroid Tomoe Mami as well.
Well, this time, a Japanese folk has made Nendoroid Homura Akemi to join her Puella Magi Nendoroid. What do you think, Nendonesian? ^^
The 4th Nendoroid from Black Rock Shooter series: Nendoroid Strength (a.k.a STR) is getting a preview photo session treatment by Mikatan. Two expressions, a pair of “Ogre Arms” (with joints on elbows and fingers), and some usual optional body parts. Super cool, cute, and nicely done, but I have one concern: why does the symbol in her stand base is a “star” instead of “fist“? ^^;
In any case, kindly visit Mikatan’s blog to view the full gallery on this cute fighter. Oh, don’t forget that her pre-order would be available starting March 31. ^^

Date-san looks excited there ...
GSC has just posted an update regarding the official release date for their upcoming products which are due in April. Well, the most exciting part is obviously Phat! Company‘s Nendoroid Masamune Date from Sengoku BASARA who finally gets his release date: April 6, 2011. Whoa … that’s about a week from now! Our waiting is finally over, huh? Do not disappoint us again, Phat! ^^
Stack of Nendoroid Sanzenin Nagi's boxes
The third Nendoroid from Hayate no Gotoku series – Nendoroid Sanzenin Nagi has finally hit Japanese stores starting today, just in line with her official release schedule. For you who have pre-ordered her, expect to receive a notification to complete your payment soon. ^^
Anyway … Nendoroid Asakura Nemu is mysteriously missing in action, although her official release schedule should be similar to Nendoroid Sanzenin Nagi. ^^;
Broken stand joint
After covering neck/head joint repair, the latest part of Mikatan’s DIY figure repair articles discusses an in-depth guide about repairing a loose stand joint (or reinforcing joint in Mikatan’s term). The stand joint in this case is the one used on some newer Nendoroid such as Nendoroid Saber: Super Movable Edition and Nendoroid Sherlock Shellingford. Looking at the required items and tools, the repair process does not seem to be hard to be done by ourselves. In any case, visit Mikatan’s blog for the full guide. ^^
