For you who are lingering around Surabaya, Indonesia, well, there will be is a hobby event being held there. The event goes by the name Hobby Festival Surabaya 2012, which is going to start on …. today, March 11th until April 1st. Yep, the event is up everyday – from 10AM until 10PM – for more than 3 weeks long! Whoaa … XD
Anyway, this event is held on East Coast Center, Pakuwon City (Laguna). For you who are not familiar with the area, well, if you know Food Festival area, then East Coast Center is that mall just beside that area. ^^
Oh, and Nendonesia will also have a special gathering there on March 31st along with the figma community FIGMANIA and perhaps other figure and model kit communities as well. I will post further details when it becomes available later on, so for now, simply mark that date in your calendar, okay? ^^
If you have been waiting for the 3DS game Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: Project mirai, well, I just want you to know that the game has been released today.
A quick refresher: this game will feature Nendoroid version of Miku, Rin, Len, Luka, KAITO, and MEIKO (and GUMI) singing and dancing on a rhythm-based game. The game also has a limited edition available, which will include several exclusive stuff inside.
Ah … now it makes more sense as to why Nendoroid Saber: Casual Clothes version is going to be priced at a hefty 5000 Yen. Yep, it seems that she will be bundled with official Nendoroid guidebook, titled Nendoroid Complete File, hence she is going to be an exclusive/limited run as well.
The WonFes brochure
Seeing that her scheduled release date is May – which is about 2 months from now, I guess she will be announced officially by Mikatan soon and her pre-order should be available shortly afterwards. XD
Well, as a Saber fan, she is a must-have for me. How about you, Nendonesian? ^^
OOT note: Nendoroid Akechi Kokoro‘s Nendoroid number is #226. XD
Nendoroid Yamada Aoi from manga/anime series WORKING!! is available for pre-order as of today.
Here is her official description from her GSC page:
Yamada has arrived, and she wants someone to spoil her!
From the popular anime series, ‘WORKING!!’ comes another Nendoroid to join the Wagnaria staff, Aoi Yamada!
She comes with three expressions including an astonished face, a smiling face and a crying face. She also comes with various optional parts including a plate for her to hold and a broken plate… to show that she is the queen of breaking things! An attic door to attach to the ceiling is included along with extra hair parts to pose her hanging upside down – allowing you to recreate the scene where she pokes her head out of the attic!
Wagnaria’s troublemaker is here for everyone to bring into their own homes, where you can watch over her and spoil her however you wish!
… and this is the official photo of that hilarious pose:

Nendoroid Yamada Aoi is scheduled for July release and priced at 3800 Yen. Are you getting her, Nendonesian? ^^
After being shown in fully-colored fashion on the latest WonFes, it is only natural that Nendoroid Shinguji Sakura and Koubu set gets a preview treatment by Mikatan.
For you who are unfamiliar with this character, well, both of them came from a (classic) game series titled Sakura Taisen (a.k.a Sakura Wars), which was firstly released on 1996. Due to its success, the series spawned and branched into other platforms and media, including OVA, animated TV series, manga, as well as mobile games.
Nendoroid Shinguji Sakura will bring along two expressions, as well as her sword and some optional body parts. Perhaps, the most interesting part of the set is the inclusion of Nendoroid Koubu Sakura. Aside from having several Nendoroid joints inside its body, this unit is also mountable! You can do so by opening the Koubu’s top hatch and put Nendoroid inside – although you have to remove the lower body of the rider Nendoroid. XD
This Nendoroid set will be available for pre-order shortly, but in the meantime, you can take a peek at some nice pics over Mikatan’s blog. ^^
*ahem* Yes, I know that the last time I do the Random Gallery post was … umm … almost a year ago. Nevertheless, I do not think I will post this monthly, but I will try to post one when I come across some interesting Nendoroid photos. ^^
Anyway, this time’s gallery consists of mostly the newly released Nendoroid, such as Honma Meiko (Menma), Charlotte E.Yeager (Shirley), and Desert Army-san. Enjoy! ^^
