Yep, after being announced officially by Mikatan yesterday, Nendoroid Megurine Luka: Cheerful version is finally available for pre-order starting today until January 30th (see below for more details). Here is the description from her official page:
Bringing smiles back to everyone with her hair tied up in a ponytail!
The ninth product to join the Cheerful JAPAN! project is a ‘Cheerful Ver.’ of the popular Nendoroid Luka Megurine!

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? ^^
