Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Cheering version
UPDATE: “Cheering version” has been changed to “Support version” to reflect on Mikatan’s English blog post
Mikatan has just posted an announcement regarding a special version of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku, made to support/cheer the victim of recent tsunami-earthquake disaster in Japan. Yes, GSC has teamed up with Crypton to create Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Support version, in which part of its sales would be donated to the Red Cross.
Aside from the parts of the original one, Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Support version would have a few new accessories (pom pom and a note-flag) to play with, as well as a happy smile expression. It looks like she is saying “Ganbatte ne, minna-san! You are not alone!”. ^^
More pics and availability info after the break.
Atelier Meruru logo
Japanese gaming news site, Gpara, has just posted more details regarding the upcoming Atelier game for PS3: Atelier Meruru, which is a direct sequel to Atelier Totori. It has also been confirmed that the Nendoroid to be bundled with the game is Nendoroid Plus Meruru Charm. Yes, it is indeed the same size as Nendoroid Plus Hatsune Miku: Spring version (a.k.a Sakura Miku), if you recalled. ^^
More pics can be seen after the break.
Nendoroid Kawashima Minami, Kousaka Tamaki, and Yuzuhara Konomi
While we have already covered Nendoroid Kousaka Tamaki and Yuzuhara Konomi (Dragon Chronicles version) several times, it is the first time that we see more photos on Nendoroid Kawashima Minami from the anime/manga series Moshidora. Apparently, she would bring along three expressions, her school bag, a small notebook, and a bat. The adorable baseball club manager is scheduled for July 2011 release with a price tag of 3500 Yen. Expect her pre-order (and Mikatan’s preview) to be available soon. ^^
Meruru, heroine of Atelier Meruru
When I first saw Nendoroid Totori announced in the latest Winter Wonder Festival, and then the pre-order become available last month, IMHO Nendoroid Totori is too good for a standard release – she should be bundled with something. However, since the PS3 game Atelier Totori has been released, then it is impossible to bundle Totori with her game.
…. and now I just realized that GSC (and Gust) indeed has something in their sleeves: Atelier Meruru – which is going to have a limited edition with Nendoroid Meruru bundled! ヽ(*ﾟдﾟ)ノ
Nendoroid Tio Plato (left) and Elie MacDowell (right)
Whoa … so there is another character to get a Nendoroid rendetion from Legend of Heroes (Eiyuu Densetsu) series? Well, A prototype pic of Nendoroid Tio Plato and Nendoroid Elie MacDowell from Nihon Falcom’s recently announced PSP game, Eiyuu Densetsu: Ao No Kiseki has surfaced in a Japanese game magazine. The PSP game is a sequel to Eiyuu Densetsu: Zero no Kiseki, which has been released on September last year.
So … who is Tio and Elie? Well, I cannot say for sure, because I have not played the game yet, but I do know that Tio is a magician and Elie is a gunner of some sort. They first appeared in Zero no Kiseki, and then Nihon Falcom confirmed their appearances in the recently announced Ao No Kiseki.
Anyway, artwork pics of Tio and Elie can be seen after the break. ^^
01 - Miku Ranger!
OK, I know … the pic you see above is an overload of moe-ness, right? The truth is the last part of this month’s Random Gallery is dedicated to arguably the most adorable Nendoroid Hatsune Miku. Well then, without further ado, slide past the break to view the rest of this gallery. ^^
Note: Credit of all pics goes to the photo owners.
OreImou fans: gather up! The photo that you see above shows Nendoroid Kuroneko‘s box, along with Nendoroid Kousaka Kirino’s – courtesy of GSC staff Station Yamada. Well, the adorable gothic-tsundere is scheduled for next month (April) release, so you might want to prepare your ammoneytion starting now. ^^

We are lacking of Nendoroid-related news recently, so I decided to put up some miscellaneous posts to lighten things up here. ^^
OK, we will have a brief article regarding Gumako and her Nendoroid rendition here. Actually, Gumako is a representation of GSC mascot. I don’t know much about her background either, but I heard that she is drawn by one of (ex?) GSC staff, Asanon back then. Gumako is portrayed as a teenage girl with short, orange-colored hair, wearing a white-orange themed dress and twin-tailed cap. ^^
Nendoroid Petit Hercule/Elly and Cordelia with swapped bodies and caps
Nendoroid Petit Hercule (Elly) and Cordelia were spotted on a tweet by Milky Holmes’ official Twitter account. Apparently, the volume 2 of Tantei Opera Milky Holmes DVD/Blu-ray limited bundle with Nendoroid Petit Cordelia is going to be released soon – FYI, the scheduled date is March 16.
A sneak peek of the included Puchi Cordelia can be seen after the break.
Be patient, Date-san! ^^
