Nendoroid Itoshiki Nozomu 1.5 and His Alternative Color Theme are Available for Pre-Order

Both version of Nendoroid Itoshiki Nozomu

Nendoroid Itoshiki Nozomu 1.5 from (Zoku) Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei is finally getting the re-release that has been promised since almost a year ago.

I’m in despair! I’m in despair over being rereleased!!

Nendoroid Nozomu Itoshiki is being rereleased in the new Nendoroid format introduced from No.300! The super negative teacher with a pessimistic view on everything is back once again, looking just as cute as ever in Nendoroid size!

He is posed wearing his characteristic Japanese style clothes, with both his scarf and bag included. He also comes with a despairing expression and an impatient expression to bring out his personality even more! The symbolic rope to hang the poor teacher is also included for some rather unique poses.

Yep, as you might have known, this is one of the few Nendoroid that offers a different color option – not to mention that it is not available as limited/exclusive product!

So, if you prefer the color option chosen by the manga author, Kumeta Kouji, then you can pre-order the Nendoroid Itoshiki Nozomu: Kumeta Kouji Color version.

I’m in despair! I’m in despair that I’d be released in this color!

To celebrate the rerelease of Nendoroid Zetsubou-sensei, a special version featuring colors selected by the original manga’s author, Kouji Kumeta, is being released as ‘Nendoroid Nozumu Itoshiki 1.5: Kouji Kumeta Color Ver.’.

It might not be the same Zetsubou-sensei you’re used to, but the colors were selected by Kouji Kumeta himself! The Nendoroid itself is exactly the same as Nendoroid Nozumu Itoshiki 1.5 – just the coloring is different.

Each of them will be priced at 3800 Yen and scheduled for September release.

You will also get a limited Nendoroid More: Clip Stands 1.5 in special orange color, if you pre-order him at Good Smile Online Shop, that is.

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian?

Nendoroid More Stands Get Upgraded to Version 1.5

Nendoroid More: Suction Stands 1.5

It has been nearly 8 months since the first generation of Nendoroid More stands are previewed by Mikatan. Within that duration, I am pretty sure that the team behind this project have received enough feedbacks to refine and improve the stands, and now they are going to release it with “Version 1.5” tag.

New colors of the Nendoroid More Suction Stands!

The Nendoroid More: Suction Stands that give you brand new ways to display your Nendoroids are being released in a new 1.5 version! The previous ‘white’, ‘pink’ and ‘mint’ colors are all available as before, but three new colors are now also available – the much-requested ‘crystal clear’, a soft yellow ‘dandelion’ color that suits many characters and a ‘cerulean blue’ color made in the image of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0.

This new version also comes with special attachment parts for characters with longer hair, making it even easier to display your favorite Nendoroids!
Be sure to grab some new Nendoroid More: Clip Stands for your own collection!

Nendoroid Itoshiki Nozomu 1.5

I know that some of you are eagerly waiting for the re-release of Nendoroid Itoshiki Nozomu from Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei. Well, it looks like your long wait is finally over as Mikatan has just posted a preview of both Nendoroid Itoshiki Nozomu 1.5 and Nendoroid Itoshiki Nozomu 1.5: Kouji Kumeta Color version.

For your info, both versions are essentially the same in terms of optional parts and expression – they only differ in color theme. Similar to the old release, Nozomu will bring along three expressions: normal, impatient, and despair face. He will also bring along an attendance register, a wearable scarf, a briefcase/bag, as well as the hanging rope that can be plugged into his head. XD

Mikatan also mentioned that the new Nozomu will be using the new post-300th Nendoroid joints and faceplate system alongside a few tweaks here and there.

Both version of Nendoroid Itoshiki Nozomu 1.5 will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow.

Design for Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version Has Been Decided

Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version

So the Nico Nico Live Broadcast by GSC dubbed as “Hatsune Miku no Jikan” has been broadcasted earlier. There are a couple of Miku stuff there, but we are going to focus to the Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version first.

As you may have known, the live broadcast also served as an election to choose the base design for next year’s Nendoroid Snow Miku. In the end of the live election session, design #8 got the most votes there.

Wearing the witch hat and the cape/coat with crystal staff, she looks pretty plain classic to my taste, but I guess the voters might see her with “simple is the best” in mind. XD

Pet for Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version

Meanwhile, the election also voted for the best pet to accompany the next year’s snow diva. The design getting the most votes is design #7 – the rabbit fairy. XD

Well, what do you think about the design, Nendonesian?
