Nendoroid Melona is Available for Pre-Order

Nendoroid Melona

Rejoice, Queen’s Blade fans! Your highly anticipated Nendoroid Melona has been available for pre-order since today.

Melona has shapeshifted into … a Nendoroid!
From the anime series ‘Queen’s Blade’ comes a Nendoroid of Melona, the shapeshifter and close aide to the Swamp Witch.

She comes with a standard smiling expression as well as a winking expression. She also comes with alternate leg parts that allow you to display her with her lower half shifted into slime form, allowing you to enjoy some poses more suited to her ‘Protean Assassin’ title.

Similar to other Nendoroids from Queen’s Blade series, Nendoroid Melona will be manufactured by FREEing. She is scheduled for May 2013 release with the usual price tag of 3500 Yen.

If you are still unable to decide whether to pre-order her or not, well, you can always wait for Mikatan’s preview, which should be posted later today. XD

Merry Christmas 2012

Christmas Eve party?

While I was gone out for almost a full day on Christmas Eve yesterday, it looked like my Snow Mikus did not want to be left out – they hosted a mini party for themselves!

They even invited one of the hottest Nendoroid guest star: Miss Super Sonico to sing the popular Christmas song “All I Want for Christmas is You” for them. XD

Super Sonico as the guest star

*ahem* Anyway, in behalf of all admins and contributors of Nendonesia, I would like to say:

MERRY CHRISTMAS! May the timeless message of Christmas fill your heart and home with joy today and throughout the coming year.

Well then, hopefully your Nendoroid could also join your Christmas party today. XD
