Yep, as you have known, there are three version of Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga: standard version, Dengeki version, and Sailor version. First up is the standard/regular one, which is available for pre-order starting today and scheduled for late January 2012 release. Normal/angry face, grumpy face, a mini-tiger, and a wooden sword is all you would get for 3500 Yen.
The second version of the Nendoroid rendetion of Taiga is … well, Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga: Dengeki version, which is exactly the same with the standard run (parts, pricing, and release date), with an additional smiling face and sold exclusively on Dengeki. Pre-order for this version of Taiga is available starting today until September 5, 2011.
You may ask, why would someone get the standard one then? Well, although it is stated that both the standard one and this Dengeki-exclusive one have the same price, the real world price of the Dengeki version will be most likely more expensive, especially for us who live outside Japan, because this is an exclusive. Some stores have already listed her for 4500 Yen pre-order exclude shipping fee. Woot! ^^
The third one is Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga: Sailor version – previously known as Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga: Last Episode Uniform version. As far as I know, this version of Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga does not include any additional parts and/or accessories other than what you see in the pic above. Yep, you will only get a different expression and sailor uniform of Taiga for 2800 Yen.
The first release of Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga: Sailor version will be sold at Chara Hobby event on August 27-28, while the web pre-order one will be available starting August 29 until September 5 at Dengeki-ya. The pre-order version is scheduled for late January release – similar with the other 2 version of Taiga.
As a side note, apparently all version of Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga will be manufactured by ASCII Media Works and SEN-TI-NEL. GSC will only be doing the distribution only this time. ^^
So … what do you think, Nendonesian? Are you getting any (or all) of these Nendoroid rendetion of the palm-top tiger? ^^
