Nendoroid Minami Haruka

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.

Optional parts include an extra body part wearing an apron, together with a knife and frying pan, allowing you to pose her cooking! Be sure to display Haruka together with Kana and Chiaki to complete the Nendoroid Minami Family!

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?

Nendonesia Weekly InstaPicks #6

Weekly InstaPicks

Introduction

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.

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.

Early Illustration of Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2013 version is Revealed

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:
