Nendoroid Rin and Wooser + Mechawooser is Previewed by Mikatan

Nendoroid Rin and Wooser + Mechawooser

The parts and accessories coming with Nendoroid Rin and Wooser + Mechawooser are already known yesterday, so I guess there are (almost) no surprises there in Mikatan’s preview for the Nendoroid set.

Nendoroid Ren!

It seems that the busty Nendoroid Ren (with Darth Wooser) has already had her uncolored prototype, so an official announcement should not be too far from now.

So … are you getting the 5300 Yen Nendoroid Rin and Wooser + Mechawooser, Nendonesian?

Nendoroid Rin and Wooser + Mechawooser and Nendoroid Shinonono Houki are Available for Pre-Order

Nendoroid Rin and Wooser + Mechawooser

Nendoroid Rin and Wooser + Mechawooser (yes, that’s the product name) from Wooser no Sono Higurashi is available for pre-order at your favorite figure stores starting today.

“Hi! I’m Rin! I’m kinda nervous about being made into a figure…”
From the anime series featuring the new hero(?) wooser, ‘wooser’s hand-to-mouth life’ comes a Nendoroid of the carefree Rin together with wooser himself! Rin is wearing her wooser hoodie, but she also comes with an alternate body part that lets you display her in a swimsuit! A glaring expression is also included to recreate scenes from the episode where wooser considered a glare from a girl to be a reward for his work!

Mechawooser, the robotic wooser that destroyed an entire city in search of uniforms, is also included as an optional part – and it can even open up so that someone can ride inside! Also don’t forget that wooser himself is included in the set – it’s a huge set for fans to really enjoy the world of wooser!

She will be priced at a whooping 5300 Yen and scheduled for May 2013 release. She must be one of the most expensive standard-run Nendoroid. XD

Nendoroid Shinonono Houki

Meanwhile, Nendoroid Shinonono Houki from Infinite Stratos is also available for pre-order since earlier today.

Ichika’s ‘first childhood friend’, who refuses to be honest with herself!
From the popular anime series ‘IS (Infinite Stratos)’, comes a Nendoroid of Houki Shinonono! Her long, trademark ponytails are fitted with joints, and she comes with special alternative parts to allow you to display her in the running pose from the ending theme of the series!

She comes with her standard expression, a expression with gritted teeth and a cute smiling expression. She also comes with folded arm parts allowing you to pose her standing with an imposing appearance, or even a hand pointing forward! Her wooden sword and fencing stick are also both included as optional parts allowing you to pose her in a number of your favorite scenes from the series!

She will be manufactured by Phat Company, scheduled for June 2013 release and priced at 3500 Yen.

Which one are you getting, Nendonesian? ^^

Nendoroid Hachune Miku is Delayed to January 2013 Due to Some Defects

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Hachune Face version

Why does this news seems like déjà vu, hmm? XD

In any case, it seems that a factory defect has been discovered during the inspection of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Hachune Face version prior to its shipment. This Nendoroid, which was available through web pre-order of Summer Wonder Festival 2012 is initially scheduled for December 25th, but it seems that Mr.Santa GSC has decided to delay your Chrismast present the Nendoroid release to January 21st next year.

It appears that the defective parts are the twintails and their joints – although there are no specific details about what the defects really are. In any case, here are the apology email sent by GSC earlier today:

Thank you very much for your support of Good Smile Company products.

A factory defect has been discovered in the “WONDERFUL HOBBY LIFE FOR YOU!! 16” web shop preorder item “Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Hachune Face Ver.” which was announced to begin shipping on Tue, Dec. 25. As such, shipment for this item has been delayed to Mon, Jan. 21, 2013. As there is possibility that some of the products within this shipment may have defective parts, all items will be shipped together with the replacement parts “Left & Right Twin Tail Parts” as well as “Twin Tail Joints x 2”.

We’d like to express our most sincere apologies, to all of our customers who were looking forward to the release of this item.

Yep, the replacement parts for the defective parts will be shipped along with the Nendoroid. You can also cancel your order and GSC will refund you fully, if you want.

Well, I hope this problem will not be repeated when they start taking pre-orders for Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013. XD

(Thanks for the tip, @NintendoTweet)

Horizon is joining the Nendoroid series!!
The Nendoroid series follows the keywords ‘Cute to look at, fun to play with and great to collect’, and from the series Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere comes a figure of Horizon Ariadust to join that series!

You can pose her in a number of popular scenes including the popular singing scene from the beginning of the anime series, or the scene where she makes use of the Mortal Sin Armament: Lype Katathlipse. It’s a Nendoroid that fans won’t want to miss out on!

She will be a Dengeki-exclusive product, scheduled for March 2013 release, and priced at 3800 Yen. Sadly, her pre-order period has ended last month, so you have to find another way to order her if you are interested.
