Nendoroid Info in Latest Hobby Magazine Scans (September 2012)

Nendoroid GUMI and IronMan

Whoa … what do we have here? It seems that a pair of highly anticipated (and adorable) Nendoroid made their debut in the latest hobby magazine scan.

The cute girl on the left is none other than Nendoroid GUMI from Megpoid. She has three adorable expressions: smiling, winking, and chibi face! She will wear her well-known attire, including the (removable?) googles! She is simply too cute! XD

Nendoroid GUMI is going to be released on January 2013, priced at 3500 Yen.

Anyway, I guess you have known about the nice looking guy on the right. Yep, he is Nendoroid Iron-Man Mark VII: Heroes Edition, which is a fully posable Nendoroid, just like Spider-Man. Aside from the articulated joints, he will also come with a special pedestal and (surprise, surprise!) a faceplate of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in a cute Nendoroid form. XD

Nendoroid Iron-Man Mark VII: Heroes Edition is also scheduled for January 2013 release, with no pricing announced just yet.

Well, what do you think about them, Nendonesian? ^^

Nendoroid More: Clip Stands – Another New Way to Display Nendoroid

Nendoroid More: Clip Stands

Not keen on displaying your Nendoroid with the new suction stands? Well, here is another alternative by GSC: Nendoroid More: Clip Stands.

As its name suggests, the stand’s main feature is the clip, which can be easily attached on the edge of your laptop’s display or any other places.

Here is the product description:

More fun ways to display your Nendoroids!
These new clip stands bring Nendoroid fans a brand new way of displaying their favorite characters! The clip can be easily attached to the frame of your cabinet or the edge of your laptop, allowing you to display your Nendoroids in places you never even considered using before!

The arm attached to the clip is articulated, allowing you to move it in any direction so that you can place the Nendoroids exactly where you want them! Each stand comes with joints for both Nendoroids and Nendoroid Petites, so you can display any of your favorite characters from either series!

This product was developed by this year’s new employees at Good Smile Company.

Similar to the suction stand, the clip stand also has three color options: white, pink, and (green) mint. The stand is priced at 500 Yen each, and it will also include both regular Nendoroid and Petites stands.

Nendoroid Hunter: Female Swordsman – Bario X Edition is Available for Pre-Order and Previewed by Mikatan

Nendoroid Hunter: Female Swordsman - Bario X Edition

Following up Nendoroid Hunter: Male Swordsman – Lagia X Edition, GSC (and Capcom) announced the next Nendoroid in the Monster Hunter line-up: Nendoroid Hunter: Female Swordsman – Bario X Edition, whose prototype were spotted recently.

Similar to the male swordman, this Nendoroid will also be a fully posable Nendoroid which means that she is articulated all over for dynamic poses. There are more joints than a normal Nendoroid, allowing for much easier combat poses.

The white swordsman, wandering the frozen lands.
From the popular Nintendo 3DS game, ‘Monster Hunter Tri G’ comes a Nendoroid of the female swordsman wearing the ‘Bario X’ series of armor made from the powerful ice-fanged Barioth! The unique design of the armor as well as the one-handed sword she wields have all been faithfully sculpted down to Nendoroid size! The bottom of the coat is separated into different parts, allowing for easy posing of the legs and amazing action poses!

Display her together with the previously announced ‘Lagia X Edition’ Nendoroid and recreate some of your favorite hunting scenes from the game.

She is scheduled for January 2013 release, bearing the 4000 Yen price tag.
