We are already at the end of 2011. Yep, today is New Year’s Eve, where we usually gather up with our family for the last feast of the year, and preparing resolution for the next year (if any XD). Allow us to put a famous quote by Bill Vaughan:
“An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.”
Well then, are we optimists or pessimists? XD
In any case, we would like to say HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012 to you all, Nendonesian! Thank you for your support to Nendonesia throughout 2011. Let’s have a lot of Nendo-fun again on 2012! ^^
Puella Magi Madoka Magica‘s Nendoroid Tomoe Mami was released on December 26th, as mentioned in the schedule. The Japanese folks who have gotten their hands on her as the last Nendoroid released for 2011, did not waste any time to take photos of her in various scenes. Jump past the break to view them. ^^
We are reaching toward the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012 in a few days. Similar to last year, we are going to conduct a poll to decide which Nendoroid is considered the best among all for this year. For refresher, last year’s champion is Nendoroid Black Rock Shooter.
So who is going to claim the top podium for 2011? Time to cast your vote, Nendonesian. ^^
Correction: Sorry for the confusion – the correct name is Akechi Kokoro, not Akechi Homura. XD
After being announced a few weeks ago, the prototype of Nendoroid Akechi Kokoro is finally displayed. FYI, she is going to be included in the limited edition of PSP game Tantei Opera Milky Holmes 2, which has 2 versions: non-1.5 (9800 Yen) and 1.5 (13800 Yen). The game is scheduled for late August 2012 release. I cannot wait to see her full-painted version. XD

Meanwhile, the 4th member of the detective team is getting a spotlight here. Yep, it seems that Nendoroid Cordelia Clauca is set to join her partners soon. With her finally being fully-painted there, I guess her official announcement should be posted shortly. ^^
Well, what do we have here? Some prototypes and design of upcoming Nendoroid are being shown today at the Comiket 81. First, we got Nendoroid Takakura Himari Princess of the Crystal from the famous anime series Mawaru Penguindrum – I have been expecting it for a while XD I am glad that GSC choose this over Takakura Himari on her normal outfit. ^^ *adding her into my watchlist*
As promised, the prototype of Nendoroid Witch Metallica (Majo Metarica) is displayed at Nippon Ichi‘s booth at the Akihabara DenkiGai Festival earlier today. In my opinion, the Petit design looks pretty nice … and hey, I thought it was a full-sized Nendoroid for a moment there. XD
The original Petit design
This bad-ass looking Petit is going to be included in the limited edition of upcoming PS3 RPG from Nippon Ichi titled The Witch and the Hundred Soldiers. The set is priced at 10290 Yen and scheduled for a vague Spring 2012 release.
Yep, Mikatan’s last blog post for this year is about Good Smile Company‘s product ranking for 2011. Apparently, Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Support version is their best selling product throughout the year, according to the combined sales number from Japan and overseas.
Kindly head directly to Mikatan’s blog for more detailed report plus a quick interview with GSC president, Takanori Aki. ^^
Latest post from Phat Company‘s blog shows a silhouette of Nendoroid Petit Witch Metallica which is bound to be bundled with the limited edition of upcoming PS3 game from Nippon Ichi titled The Witch and the Hundred Soldiers.
Apparently, this particular Petit will be displayed at Nippon Ichi’s booth at the Akihabara Electronic Festival 2011, which will be held December 28th – yes, that’s today!
In any case, we will post more about this when we get the pic later, so stay tuned, Nendonesian. XD
