As you can see in the final poll result, Touhou Project‘s Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet has been crowned as Nendonesia’s Nendoroid of the Year for 2011, beating the runner-up Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Absolute HMO Edition with quite some margin there. XD
Here is the final result: (percentage might be different than what you saw in the actual poll due to rounding)
Seeing the poll result, I guess Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet is considered to be the best Nendoroid in term of design among all Nendoroid released last year. Well, if you have read GSC’s description of Flandre in its official page, you should have noticed that she was indeed carefully designed by GSC’s sculptors. Here is the Flan’s official description:
“The little sister of the Scarlet Devil Mansion.”
From the popular game series, the “Touhou Project” created by the doujin circle Shanghai Alice and following on from her older sister Remilia, comes a Nendoroid of Flandre Scarlet!
Along with her standard expression, two other expressions are included: A very childish and innocent smile as well as a grinning face that she is bound to show whenever she destroys absolutely everything around her. Her trademark wings that shine with the all the colors of the rainbow are also included, with careful attention put into the colors to create a very vibrant effect.
Display her with her elder sister Remilia, and recreate the sibling rivalry of the adorable Scarlet sisters!
I guess Flan’s beautiful wings are simply too much for Hatsune Miku HMO’s adorable expressions and abundance parts to be beaten. Congratulations, Flan-chan! You deserve the award. ^^
Meanwhile, the 3rd place goes to Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Playtime Edition, and Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Support version came in the 4th place, with only a slightly higher votes than 5th ranker Nendoroid Elsie – which has just been released less than 2 months ago. FYI, Support Miku is GSC’s best selling product on 2011, so it is a little surprising to see her out of top 3 in this poll. XD
Well, what do you think about the poll result, Nendonesian? ^^
Note: I know that there are several 2011 Nendoroid that should be included as nominees, such as Nendoroid Sherlock Shellingford (Sharo), Nendoroid Kaname Madoka, and a few others. Sorry about that. I think I will be asking you to decide our next year’s candidates. ^^
