Nendoroid Petit Witch Metallica
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.
Well, what do you think, Nendonesian?

Close up view of the hovered part entry
Anyway, apart from the improved search functions – which I have not tried yet due to my lack of Japanese skill – the catalog page is also updated with an additional features. The cool thing is when we mouse over the part names, the little thumbnail beside it will change to show you that particular part. Well, Mikatan mentioned that the feature was already present in the old site, but I don’t think I have seen this feature previously – perhaps I overlooked it? XD
Well, what do you think about the new site design and features of the official Nendoroid site, Nendonesian? ^^

Do you remember Cheerful JAPAN x pixiv contest which ended a few months ago? Yep, the winning illustration has been realized in the form of a Nendoroid Petit.
Officially dubbed as Nendoroid Petit Hatsune Miku: Cheerful JAPAN feat. Hatsune Miku Contest version (wow that was a lengthy name! XD), this adorable Petit is featuring Miku jumping in mid-air carrying a pair of pompoms. I kinda like her hairstyle there, as well as her unique pose – never seen in a Petit previously, as far as I know. ^^
This Nendoroid Petit will come bundled with Quarterly Pixiv vol.8, which is priced at 1680 Yen and scheduled to be released on March 9th – yes, it is also known as Miku Day. The pre-order should be available shortly, so you should keep your eyes peeled checking your favorite hobby retailers. ^^
Any thoughts, Nendonesian? ^^
