Do Nendoroid Yune‘s eyes look slightly too big? Well, to be honest, that is what I feel when I saw her for the first time at the WonFes. Apparently, some Japanese folks are thinking about the same thing, and they decided to “refine” Yune’s eyes. IMHO, Yune looks a lot better with her eyes being re-adjusted there. ^^

The following is a comparison pic of Yune’s eyes position being adjusted:

As if that wasn’t enough, some other folks posted their solution for the “problematic” eyes as well:

That said, I am still placing my pre-order for Nendoroid Yune because it is not that much of an issue IMHO. Well, what about you, Nendonesian? What do you think about Nendoroid Yune’s eyes? ^^

American rock band Linkin Park is partnering with Good Smile Company to hold an event titled “A Thousand Horizon“, which will be divided in 2 parts: A Thousand Horizon Museum and A Thousand Horizon Show. GSC will be selling goodies at the event and part of the sales will be donated to the earthquake affected areas through Music for Relief.

Apart from T-Shirts, iPhone 4 cases, and other goodies, GSC will also make Nendoroid Petit to sell at the event. Since I could not read Japanese well, I can only guess that it would be Nendoroid Petit rendetion of LINKIN PARK’s 6 band members. ^^
