Phat is the one handling the Nendoroids from IS (Infinite Stratos) series, including the newly announced Nendoroid Cecilia Alcott. Naturally, it is Phat who posted the preview of this lovely lady, instead of the usual treatment by Mikatan. XD
Here are some of the pics posted in the preview.
Surprise! Nendoroid Cecilia Alcott from IS (Infinite Stratos) comes out of nowhere to accompany Houki.
DAT SPARKLING EYES! XD
The Alcott family’s earnest daughter and England’s IS representative.
From the popular anime ‘IS ‘ comes the second Nendoroid from the series, ‘Cecilia Alcott’! She comes with three different expressions including her standard expression, a expression with sparkling eyes and a slight blush and a smiling expression! She also comes with a sandwich and a basket as optional parts, allowing you to recreate lunchtime!
Her trademark rolled hair has been made to look just like the series, and even includes joints for some extra posing options – plus extra replaceable parts are included to recreate the running scene from the ending theme of the anime! Be sure to display her with the previously announced Nendoroid Houki Shinonono!
Similar to Houki, Cecilia will be made by Phat, scheduled for August release with a price tag of 3500 Yen.
Meanwhile, the evil-looking bear, Nendoroid Monokuma has also been available for pre-order alongside Cecilia today.
“Good morning everyone!! If you don’t buy my Nendoroid, expect punishment!!”
From the high-speed detective action game ‘Super Danganronpa 2: Sayonara Zetsubou Gakuen’ comes a Nendoroid of Kibogamine Academy’s self-proclaimed headmaster, Monokuma! He comes with both his standard expression and a laughing expression! He also comes with a number of extra parts to recreate the famous punishment scene, including sitting parts and a punishment button!
Enjoy posing him in your favorite scenes from the game!
The bear is slated for June release, bearing (pun intended) 3000 Yen price tag.

I missed this one last week, but anyway, this should be a good news for any Misaka (and Tamiya) fans. Yep, Nendoroid Petite x Mini 4WD: Mikoto Misaka drives Thunder Shot Special has been available for pre-order since February 22.
A certain Misaka’s four-wheel-drive car!
Tamiya’s Mini 4WD model car series has just celebrated its 30th anniversary and is now working in collaboration with the Nendoroid Petite series to create a joint product that will be produced by Dengeki Hobby Magazine! The third character to join the series is Mikoto Misaka from ‘Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S’!
Using specially developed parts, the Nendoroid Petite figures can easily jump into the Mini 4WD models and drive around! Each car is specially designed to suit the image and colors of the character that the car is designed for, and the figure mount is a cleverly designed battery holder! A set of stickers is also included with the Mini 4WD to add even more flair to their ride!
As you may have known, this is one of the products from the joint collaboration between GSC and Tamiya that was announced last year.
Nendoroid Petite x Mini 4WD: Mikoto Misaka drives Thunder Shot Special will be priced at 2100 Yen and scheduled for June release.
This Petite will be available at the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP and orders can be placed between the February 22 from 12:00 until the March 21 at 21:00.
Have you ever heard of a game titled Super Danganronpa 2 – Sayonara Zetsubou Gakuen? No? Me neither. But it does not stop GSC to create a Nendoroid out of the game’s character and the first result is Nendoroid Monokuma, who got a preview treatment by Mikatan earlier today.
The badass-looking bear will be carrying merely two expressions: standard and laughing face. Aside from those, he will also bring some body parts as well as a button and a hammer that are usually used for punishment time in the game.
Due to its lack of parts and accessories, Mikatan said that the Nendoroid will be priced at 3000 Yen and should be available for pre-order starting tomorrow.
Anyone interested to get this Nendoroid?

This month’s scan reveal a few more details to some upcoming Nendoroids and Petites that we saw back then on Winter WonFes 2013.
The first scan is all about Nendoroid Senjougahara Hitagi from Bakemonogatari. She is still uncolored, though she does get pictured in several poses and angles. Personally, I would like to see more pics of the extra expressions and parts. (￣▽￣)
Yes, we have seen Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Selection previously at the most recent Winter WonFes and now they are getting a proper preview by Mikatan.
This Petite set consists of:
- Six main characters, i.e MEIKO, KAITO, Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, and Megurine Luka – all in their respective default costumes
- Three fan-made characters, i.e Kagamine Len: Servant of Evil, Kagamine Rin: Daughter of Evil, and Megurine Luka: Akahitoha
- Hatsune Miku: Deep Sea Girl
- Two other characters have not been revealed yet.
Here is how the Deep Sea Girl Miku looks like in her Petite version:
Mikatan said that she will reveal the remaining characters every Friday though. XD
Anyway, the Petite set will come as either 500 Yen for each Petite, or a box of 12 Petites, priced at around 6000 Yen.

The final piece of puzzle for Nendoroid collections from Minamike (Tadaima) is finally announced. Yep, Nendoroid Minami Haruka, the eldest sister of the Minami sisters has been available for pre-order starting today.
The motherly figure who excels at housework!
From ‘Minamike’, the anime with its forth season now airing, as well as a manga that is still being serialized comes the long-awaited Nendoroid of the oldest sister of the Minami household, Haruka Minami! She is posed wearing her school uniform and also comes with her school bag. She also comes with three different expressions including her standard expression, a smiling expression and the ‘realistic’ expression she sometimes showed in the series.

Similar to Nendoroid Minami Kana, this Nendoroid will also be handled by Gift, scheduled for July release and priced at 3800 Yen.
Anyone looking to get her?
Mamitan, the Good Smile Company USA staff posted a quick snap of Nendoroid Sakura Miku, packaged nicely in her pink colored, sakura themed box. Looks very lovely, doesn’t it? XD
On the other hand, GSC has just sent e-mails to the customers who has secured the pre-orders for the upcoming Nendoroid Sakura Miku from Good Smile Online Shop. The mail basically tells us that the shipment will begin on March 6th.
(Thanks for the news tip, Nicole Wagner and Matthew McCormick!)

We are going to pick ten Nendoroid photos tagged with #nendonesia from Instagram to be featured in the Nendonesia Weekly InstaPicks series, alongside the other series – Nendonesia Weekly Photo Picks.
So why do we separate the InstaPhotos from the rest of our photo channels? Well, because the rate of photo submission from Instagram is extremely high – in fact there are more than 1,000 photos tagged with #nendonesia at the moment, and it keeps increasing everyday. XD
How to get picked?
In order to participate, simply tag your Nendoroid photos with #nendonesia in Instagram. Isn’t it easy? ^^
Oh, and note that we don’t always pick new photos – we will browse through gallery of photos with #nendonesia tag, so if you have tagged some of your photos in the past, that posts might still have the chance to be featured here.
Well then, here are the InstaPicks for this week.
