Instruction manual for Nendoroid Petit B.G.M Festival vol.0

Apparently, the packaging of Nendoroid Petit B.G.M Festival vol. 0 and Nendoroid Petit Katanagatari Set do not include the instruction manuals which are usually packed along with the figures/figurines. Well, GSC has just posted an apology about that errors as well as the digital (scanned?) version of the manuals, so that you can print it out yourself if necessary. ^^

Instruction manual for Nendoroid Petit Katanagatari Set

For you who aren’t familiar with the instruction manual … well, it usually consists of parts listing and possibly some quick assembly guide. This guide is –in my opinion– quite useful for newbie Nendoroid collectors, especially those who purchased Nendoroid (or Petit) for the first time. ^^

Well then, what is your thought, Nendonesian? Do you think the instruction manual is important or is it not necessary at all?

Nendoroid Info in Latest Hobby Magazine Scans (May 2011)

Various upcoming Nendoroid displayed

Various upcoming Nendoroid displayed

As usual, the latest issue of Japanese hobby magazine brings us yet a plenty of new Nendoroid info and pics. First up, the completed version of Nendoroid Ikaros is displayed there along with the highly-anticipated Nendoroid Nymph (still in prototype though) from Sora no Otoshimono. Nendoroid Ikaros is scheduled for September release with a price tag of 3500 Yen. No availability and pricing info on Nendoroid Nymph though. ^^

Next is Phat Company‘s Nendoroid Kuronuma Sawako from Kimi ni Todoke which is available for pre-order starting today. Meanwhile, FREEing also showcased the limited and exclusive Nendoroid Nyx: 2P version. IMHO, this is the one of the best 2P version of Queen Blade‘s Nendoroid – gorgeous blue-ish color theme suits Nyx really well. Anyway, she will be available for pre-order on June 24 (http://hobby-channel.net/nendo_nyx_2p) and scheduled for August release.

Last but not least, there is also an announcement about the next figure in the Cheerful Japan charity project, which turned out to be a set of Nendoroid Petit from Black Rock Shooter in cheerleader outfit. Looking at the pic, I guess the Petits would have a similar art style as Puchitto Rock Shooter, a NicoNicoDouga web-based BRS game. Pre-order will start on June with a price tag of 3000 Yen.

Well, which Nendoroid interests you the most, Nendonesian? ^^

(Thanks to Jeff Teo and Cybeast for the tip! ^^)
