The pre-order for Nendoroid Shuukan Hajimete no Hatsune Miku (a.k.a Mikumix) starts today. Here is the description from the official page:

The unsociable Miku that everyone still loves!
From the 4-panel manga currently serialized in Weekly Young Jack, ‘Shuukan Hajimete no Miku Hatsune’ comes a brand new Nendoroid design for Miku, with the well known mean looking expression from the series!

She comes with a total of three different expressions, as well as a mike stand, baseball and a paper-craft cardboard box to allow you to create all sorts of scenes from the series! She also comes with some ice cream and sitting parts to help recreate the atmosphere from the official music video, ‘Mukashimukashi no Kyou no Boku’!

She is priced at 3500 Yen and scheduled for April 2012 release. ^^

Anyway … do you notice that her hair color in the product photos looks similar to Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Absolute HMO Edition? For some reason, the hair color looks different compared to Mikatan’s preview yesterday. Any thought? XD

Nendoroid Petit Ikoku Meiro no Croisee set is nothing new, so let’s skip it. Nendoroid Plus charms from the upcoming PSP game Nendoroid Generation are being displayed there, revealing new characters compared to last month’s article – is that Millhiore F. Biscotti there?

Nendoroid Niizuma Eiji is Joining Nendoroid Army?

Niizuma Eiji

Niizuma Eiji

The eccentric manga-ka Niizuma Eiji from manga/anime series Bakuman, is seemingly set to have his own Nendoroid rendetion. The announcement is mentioned in the latest chapter (156) of the manga series. No pic of its prototype just yet, let alone its release info. However, it is almost certain that he will be manufactured by Phat Company, who made the Nendoroid of Bakuman’s two main characters.

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? ^^

(Thanks for the news tip, Ario! ^^)

Correction for Nendoroid Mikumix Miku Pre-Order Date

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Mikumix version

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Mikumix version

GSC has just posted an apology and correction regarding pre-order date for Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Mikumix version posted in the latest issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine, which was published yesterday.

Apparently there is a typo there mentioning that Nendoroid Mikumix will be available for pre-order starting October 25, 2011, whereas the correct one is November 25, 2011. Yep, it seems the reservation for this eccentric Miku will be available on Friday, next week. It is still unclear whether she will be a limited, exclusive, or normal run. ^^

Note: The actual English name for this version of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku is still unknown. It reads “Shūkan hajimete no Hatsune Miku” in Japanese, that literally translates into “Hatsune Miku: First Weekly version“. However, I think that the term “Mikumix” is more frequently used to describe this version of Miku, hence it is used in the posts.

Nendoroid Petit Sawa-chan and Menma are Delayed

Nendoroid Petit Yamanaka Sawako and Honma Meiko

Nendoroid Petit Yamanaka Sawako and Honma Meiko

Anime Style vol.5, which includes Nendoroid Petit Yamanaka Sawako from K-ON!, is supposed to be released by this month, but it has been pushed to December, while Anime Style vol.6 with Nendoroid Petit Honma Meiko (Menma) from Ano Hana is delayed from December to January next year.

I guess the delay is caused by the strong demand for both magazine issues, forcing GSC to adjust the publish schedule. Well, what do you think about the delay, Nendonesian?

Improved Stand-Base for Re-sale Version of Nendoroid Date Masamune

Better base adapter for Nendoroid Date Masamune

Better base adapter for Nendoroid Date Masamune

If you have read our review of Nendoroid Date Masamune, you should have known that his base adapter is a little quirky. Based on my own experience, it is kinda hard to dock Masamune onto the base and it is not too stable as well.

Fortunately, Phat Company will have this problem fixed on the upcoming re-sale version of the one-eyed dragon‘s Nendoroid rendetion. They promise better stability and easier docking with this improved base adapter. Note that they only modify the base adapter; no changes to Masamune’s body or other parts.

As for those who have purchased the first edition of this Nendoroid, it seems that Phat Company is currently looking into various solution to distribute the updated base adapter (excluding the pedestal and pillar). No further info has been confirmed though.

Any thoughts, Nendonesian?
