Nico Nico Cho Kaigi was an annual event hosted by Nico Nico Douga since last year. As usual, GSC also participated in this exhibition to showcase their upcoming products, including Nendoroids.
Here are the new, unannounced Nendoroid that was displayed in this event.
Ah … it’s been almost a year since we last heard about Nendoroid Feyris Nyan Nyan from the game/anime series Steins;Gate. Fast-forward to today and we got a teaser from Mikatan’s tweet earlier, just when we thought that her Nendoroid production plan has been scrapped. XD
She looks very adorable in that maid outfit while … serving me a plate of omelette? Yes, please!
Now I cannot wait to see how her colored prototype will look like – which should be sooner rather than later. How about you, Nendonesian?
Since 2012, it is a kind of tradition to hold an annual contest to determine Nendoroid Snow Miku’s design with a defined theme. Yep, Nendoroid Snow Miku: Fluffy Coat version and Strawberry White Kimono version are products of that contest in the last two years.
Fast-forward to today, and we are facing the contest run for Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version and this year’s theme is magical girl and pet – it certainly reminds me of that particular magical girl and her contact-obsessed companion. XD
Well, what do you think, Nendonesian?
We have seen Nendoroid Tsunemori Akane (PSYCHO-PASS) in a few recent events, and now that the prototype is fully-colored, it means that she is ready for some preview treatment by Mikatan.
I know, I know. Some of you might be wondering why this lovely figurine is (1) a Nendoroid Petite, instead of normal-sized Nendoroid and (2) being put inside a bundle. Yep, as you might have known, Nendoroid Petite Rachel Alucard is going to be bundled with the limited edition of PS3 game BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma.
The set is scheduled for release on October 24 with a price tag of 10290 Yen.
It seems that Phat Company is ready to continue their Nendoroid line up from IS: Infinite Stratos, as an uncolored prototype of Nendoroid Fang Lin Yin was spotted a few days ago. I guess she will be joining Shinonono Houki and Cecilia Alcott pretty soon.
Seeing the order of the Nendoroid’s announcements, we can’t help but wonder if Phat is aligning the Nendoroids’ release order as the characters’ order of appearances in the anime. So … is it Charlotte’s turn next? XD
From Super Danganronpa 2: Sayonara Zetsubou Gakuen, we are going to get another character to be Nendoroid-ized after Nendoroid Monokuma.
She will carry along two expressions: the normal one and crying face, as well as her wooden stick and several optional body parts.
Well, if you are looking to get her, you can start pre-ordering her on April 23 (that’s tomorrow!).
Aside from Monomi’s preview, Mikatan also slipped several interesting tips as well! The first one is the musical notes parts you see above, which will be joining the Nendoroid More line and they are scheduled to be available for pre-order starting on May.
Mikatan also mentioned that Nendoroid Itoshiki Nozomu from Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is going for a re-release sometimes next mont! XD

The 31st Miyazawa Model Exhibition was held last week on April 9. For your information, Miyazawa Model Exhibition is the largest figure event intended for everyone involved in the figure industry and it was held two times annually – spring and autumn.
Here are some photos of Nendoroid exhibited during the event.
Anime Contents Expo (ACE) 2013 was held on March 30 and 31 at Makuhari Messe. Similar to the first ACE last year, we got some Nendoroids to look for in this event.
The first official press photo of Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2013 version has been posted by GSC. The new Racing costume looks great, although in my opinion, it kinda looks like a mix of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Append version and the previous Racing Miku Nendoroids.
Unfortunately, there are not photo of the optional expressions and accessories – the parasol and Nendoroid car – but I guess it should be available shortly.
For you who wanted to get her, you have to “apply” for select sponsorship package, which is available at Good Smile Racing Global website starting on March 21 (18:00 JST) until May 7 (12:00 JST).
