More Details of Nendoroid Famima Miku is Revealed

The pic above popped up on Happy Kuji website, revealing slightly further information about Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Family Mart version (usually called as Famima Miku). First info is regarding her release schedule: August 2012, and the second one is her raffle price: 800 Yen. One of her accessories is also revealed here: her hand holding a bag of nuggets (or cakes, or some other kind of food).

What is a raffle, you ask? Well, a raffle is a competition in which people obtain numbered tickets, each ticket having the chance of winning a prize. At a set time, the winners are drawn from a container holding a copy of every number. The drawn tickets are checked against a collection of prizes with numbers attached to them, and the holder of the ticket wins the prize. (Wikipedia) Yes, you might call it a lottery. XD

Note: I could guess that some of you will comment like this: “No more Miku please” or “Please do other character” or something like that. XD

Nendoroid Info in Latest Hobby Magazine Scans (May 2012)

The magazine scan

The magazine scan

After Nendoroid Annelotte (Queen’s Blade Rebellion) went for pre-order last month, the usual “how will the 2P version look like?” thought crossed on my mind.

Thankfully, I don’t have to wait long, as Nendoroid Annelotte: Dark Knight version made her debut in this month’s Dengeki Hobby Magazine. Interestingly, she does not bear the 2P version remarks that have been the case with the previous alternative versions of Nendoroid from Queen’s Blade. XD

*ahem* I have to say that she looks really gorgeous with those red eyes, elven’s ears, and a glittering golden equipments. I’m totally sold, FREEing, good job! ^^

Anyway, it seems that she will be available as a limited and exclusive product, as usual, with a price of 3500 Yen. The evil-looking lady will be released sometimes this year.

Meanwhile, Phat Company‘s Nendoroid Gertrud Barkhorn from Strike Witches series gets another highlight in the magazine scan. This time, she brings along her Striker unit and shares a few new poses with us.

(Un)surprisingly, she is still uncolored, eventhough it is already more than a year since the first time we saw her. At least she got a release schedule, albeit a little vague: Autumn 2012. XD

Note: Oh, and while we’re at it, how are our Disgaea duo (Flonne and Etna) doing there, Phat-san? Hopefully you don’t plan to cancel abandon forget them, because some of us have been patiently waiting since you showed them to us last year. XD

Well then, what do you think about it, Nendonesian? ^^

(Thanks for the news tip, Jeff Teo!)

GSC has just announced that the re-release of Touhou Project duo from Scarlet Devil Mansion: Nendoroid Izayoi Sakuya and Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet are available for pre-order starting yesterday.

Here is the updated description for Nendoroid Izayoi Sakuya:

Sakuya comes with three expression parts, a tea-set and a knife as extra parts, allowing you to pose her in a variety of different ways. Pose her working hard as a maid in the mansion, or instead pose her in battle, ready to throw her knives! It’s a Nendoroid that any Touhou Project fan is bound to enjoy!

While, the following is an updated description of Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet:

The little sister of the Scarlet Devil Mansion is being rereleased!
The much anticipated rerelease of Flandre Scarlet from the Touhou Project Nendoroid series is on its way!

She comes with three expressions including her standard expression, a childish, innocent smiling expression as well as the grinning expression that shows off her devious intentions to destroy everything around her. Her trademark wings are also included, shining with all the vibrant colors of the rainbow!

Display her with her elder sister Remilia, and recreate the sibling rivalry of the adorable Scarlet sisters!

Both of these Nendoroid will be available for pre-order at NicoNico Chokuhan, animate, GAMERS, and Tora no Ana for Japanese residents, while international customers can pre-order them at GSC Online Shop. The pre-order starts from May 20th, 12:00 until June 6th, 21:00. Note that the usual terms and conditions of GSC Online Shop apply. XD

Anyway, the re-release of these Nendoroid duo is scheduled for August.

Well, are you going to pre-order either (or both) of them, Nendonesian? ^^

Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet and Izayoi Sakuya Get a Re-Sale!

EDITOR’S NOTE: I have conducted further research regarding this re-sale saga, and it seems I was partially mis-informed. Apparently, GSC mentioned that the resale will be the first wave of their 10th anniversary voting, hence it will still be possible for GSC to put Nendoroid Miyafuji Yoshika, Saber Lily, Saber Lion, Itoshiki Nozomu, or other Nendoroid inside the top 50 chart on re-sale. Yay! ^^

That said, I would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused by the post. I have modified this post to reflect on the changes.

UPDATE: Re-sale confirmed by Mikatan

GSC’s latest Nico Nico broadcast that was conducted yesterday revealed several stuff there, including some Nendoroid to be put on re-sale. As you can see in the pic above, it seems that the re-sale of Touhou Project duo Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet and Nendoroid Izayoi Sakuya has been approved by GSC.

Well, what do you think about the re-sale, Nendonesian?
