Is This Nendoroid’s New Faceplate System?

New faceplate system?

One thing I like the most about Nendoroid is their interchangability. Swap a Nendoroid’s face with other Nendoroid’s face, give her another Nendoroid’s body, and ta-da! You have created a brand new Nendoroid of your own! There are just so many kinds of combinations enough to make Nendoroids so much fun to play with. Here is an example: Totori with Sena’s faceplate that gives her another level of cuteness IMHO. XD

Totori + Sena

Well, the “faceplate” might be taken out of this feature in the future, as GSC has just showed their plan to change the faceplate model for the future Nendoroid in their Nico Nico broadcast earlier.

It seems that the new system are proposed in order to minimize the cases of broken neck joints (and to save cost, perhaps). The new system incorporates the neck as part of the Nendoroid’s body. Sadly, backward compatibility with older Nendoroids have not been discussed yet – this is my main concern, so I do hope GSC give it a deep thought before they implement the new system into future Nendoroids.

So what do you think about it, Nendonesian? Are you okay with the new system or against it for some reason?

More Photos of Nendoroid Shinonono Houki are Spotted

Nendoroid Shinonono Houki, along with Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0 and Nendoroid Rin + Wooser, are the only Nendoroids that already got completed paint job when they were displayed during GSC’s Nico Nico broadcast earlier.

As one of the main heroines in Infinite Stratos, it seems that GSC liked to spend more time featuring Houki, as they displayed more official photos of her in the broadcast.
