Nendoroid Miki Sayaka and Sakura Kyouko are Getting Re-release

Nendoroid Miki Sayaka and Sakura Kyouko

Good news for Puella Magi Madoka Magica fans who missed out the first release of both Nendoroid Miki Sayaka and Nendoroid Sakura Kyouko, as they are announced for re-sale and available for pre-order starting today.

The exact reason of why GSC decided to release these two is unknown. Is it because of a new season of Puella Magi Madoka Magica currently in the works or is it simply some routine re-releases?

In any case, both of them are priced at 3500 Yen and scheduled for release in May.

Illustration of Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2013 version

Hatsune Miku in racing-themed outfits or widely known as Racing Miku, gets a new design annually. This year’s design was revealed at the Winter WonFes 2013 (or the NicoNico broadcast, for non-Japan residents).

Obviously, it is also followed by the Nendoroid design, albeit merely as an early illustration rather than full-fledged design, as you can see in the pic above.

Here is the original illustration for comparison sake:

Nendoroid Release Schedule for February 2013 (Updated)

Nendoroid Snow Miku: Strawberry White Kimono version

With 6 Nendoroids and 4 Petites scheduled for this month’s release, that numbers seem pale in comparison with recent months’ releases.

That said, I guess the upcoming winter WonFes preparation has taken so much resources off GSC that they even decided to delay some products there – including the much anticipated Nendoroid Iron Man. Hopefully their QC can be improved further by the delay.
