Ah … how nostalgic … I recall my childhood memories when I was controlling the speedy blue hedgehog to run, roll, and jump around the stage to get the rings/emeralds and save those bunnies, chipmunks, and birds from the mad doctor. XD
Yep, Nendoroid Sonic The Hedgehog was last seen at Miyazawa Event, and he got a preview photo session by Mikatan today.
As mentioned by Mikatan in her blog post, this Nendoroid is being made to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Sonic’s career in the gaming world. He will bring along a plenty of parts and accessories to re-create featured scenes from the game. Kindly visit Mikatan’s blog to view more pics. ^^
Anyway, this Nendoroid will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow. What do you think, Nendonesian? ^^
Yep, Phat Company has just posted official announcement regarding Bakuman‘s Nendoroid Niizuma Eiji in a blog post earlier. A bit late to the party, but it wouldn’t hurt to see an official post from the manufacturer, right? ^^
Anyway, Phat Company also posted about their upcoming Nendoroid PetitMini Ika-musume (trading) figures there. Yep, apparently the set we saw previously was not a Nendoroid Petit set after all (as guessed by Dorothee XD)
Anyway, kindly visit Phat Company’s blog to see their official announcement (in Japanese). ^^
It’s official: Phat Company‘s Nendoroid Niizuma Eiji from Bakuman is now up on GSC’s official website – and it means that he has been available for reservation starting today. Here is the description from the official page:
The genius high-school manga artist!
From the popular anime about two young school boys who want to become manga artists, ‘Bakuman’, comes a Nendoroid of Saiko and Akito’s biggest rival, Eiji Nizuma!
You can recreate all sorts of famous scenes from the series, including his trademark pose, his pose holding six different writing tools or even the pose of him standing on one leg. He also comes with a feather pen and a sketchbook as extra items to recreate even more of your favorite scenes!
He is scheduled for April 2012 release with the standard price tag of 3500 Yen. ^^
Yes, Amazon Japan has added Bakuman‘s Nendoroid Niizuma Eiji into their store earlier. Although the item is not yet available for pre-order, at least we know this Nendoroid will be available for reservation shortly. This Nendoroid is dated for late April 2011 release, without any pricing info yet.
The upcoming Vocaloid Nendoroid-themed game for 3DS, Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai, has been given an official title by SEGA: Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: Project Mirai. It is not a mere title change though, as SEGA also intends to differentiate between this game and the PSP-bound Hatsune Miku: Project Diva series.
Should you choose one or more Vocaloid for a song in Project Diva, he/she/they would only dance for the music, but the song remains to be sung by Hatsune Miku. In the case of Project Mirai, you may choose which Vocaloid to sing certain songs. Whoa … isn’t it nice to listen to Rin, Luka, and MEIKO’s voices there? XD
Anyway, there are six songs that have been announced to appear in Project Mirai:
Tricolor Airline (Atsuzou-kun) – has voice selection feature
Daughter of Evil (Mothy)
LOL -Lots of Laugh- (Ken and Endcape)
Watashi no Jikan (Kuchibasi)
PIANO*GIRL (OSTER Project)
Sing and Smile (Re:nG)
Did you know that Project Mirai also have augmented reality (AR) features? Yes, you could take pictures of AR concerts being performed by Hatsune Miku on your desk. Awesome! XD
Anyway, Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: Project Mirai is scheduled for release on March 8, 2012 in Japan – one day prior to Miku Day on March 9 (3/9). Don’t forget that the limited edition of this game will also include a Nendoroid Petit Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai version. ^^
Nendoroid Megurine Luka and Tako-Luka (Witch style)
We have seen many custom Nendoroid based on Hatsune Miku, but we rarely see custom Nendoroid of the other Vocaloid. Well, today we will take a look at a custom Nendoroid based on Megurine Luka, wearing witch costume set. XD
Well then, let’s take a look at some pics of this lovely custom-made Nendoroid Megurine Luka: Witch Style, which are available after the break. ^^
GSC posted a few tips for us to recognize the circulating bootleg Nendoroid, such as Hatsune Miku, Saber Lily, Black Rock Shooter, and Al-Azif. Although it is not a complete listing, it worths to be read, especially if you are aiming for those Nendoroid. ^^
Anyway, we had posted bootlegNendoroid list previously. Kindly take a look at them if you are interested.
Have you read our review of Nendoroid Sherlock Shellinford (a.k.a Sharo) which was posted early this year? Yes, that Nendoroid was bundled with the limited edition of PSP game Tantei Opera Milky Holmes that was released by the end of 2010. Since then, the Nendoroid has become pretty hard to be found and its price has been skyrocketing due to her epic expressions.
Well, Bushiroad announced that the said game is getting a sequel titled Tantei Opera Milky Holmes 2, which will include Nendoroid Akechi Kokoro (Game version), original soundtrack CD, drama CD, and Weiss Schwarz cards in the limited edition. Here is the original artwork of Akechi Kokoro:
The game is scheduled for August 2012 release and reservation will start on January 2012. The pricing schemes have also been announced: 13800 Yen, 9800 Yen, and 4980 Yen. The limited edition with Nendoroid should be included on either (or both) 13800 Yen and/or 9800 Yen. A digital download version (via PlayStation Store) will also be available.
Miharu Inami and Yamada Aoi Nendoroid announcement
For some reason, this news slipped past us although we have already known about the magazine scan displaying Max Factory‘s Nendoroid Taneshima Popura. It seems that her fellow co-workers will also join her as Nendoroid waitresses. Yes, Nendoroid Mahiru Inami and Nendoroid Yamada Aoi are reported to be getting an announcement shortly.
What do you think, Nendonesian? What parts/accessories/expression should be included with them? ^^
