Anime Japan is one of the largest anime-related tradeshow held annually at the Big Sight convention center, Odaiba. Yes, as you can guess, Good Smile Company also takes part in this event and they are displaying their new and upcoming figures – including Nendoroids there.
Let’s take a look on the new Nendoroids being displayed in the Anime Japan 2014.
So you missed the first shipment of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0? Well, here is another chance for you to grab her as the pre-order for the second shipment has already been announced and available since the last week. Yay! XD
The second shipment of the electronic diva!
The second shipment of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0 is ready for orders!
Miku 2.0 comes with both the winking expression and the excited expression that featured in the opening movie of the ‘Hatsune Miku and Future Stars Project mirai’ game. She also comes with all new optional parts such as a keyboard and a guitar for some brand new poses, and even comes with some alternate parts that allow you to pose her sitting down! It’s the same Miku everyone has come to love with an extra touch! She also still comes with her famous leeks! ♪
Meanwhile, Nendoroid MEIKO, which was released back then on December 2011, is also getting another run!
The virtual singer in a class of her own!
The first in a series of Nendoroids based on the original Japanese Vocaloid characters is the wonderful virtual idol, MEIKO!
She comes with extra parts such as a mike, mike stand and extra lower body part that allows you to recreate the dynamic scene from the original packaging of the software. She also comes with a variety of extra parts that allow you to give her a drunk look – as all fans will know, MEIKO loves her alcohol!
You can pose her in a serious pose, a fun pose or any other pose you think suits her best!
The re-sale version of both Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0 and MEIKO will be released on June 2014. Oh, and it seems that you can also get the bonus Nendoroid Pouch: Miku version if you pre-order at the Good Smile Online Shop.

When I saw Nendoroid Alisa‘s design for the first time, I was really surprised considering the fact that Namco Bandai as the licensor of GOD EATER series handed out the license to GSC to produce the Nendoroid. XD
“I’m slowly starting to understand how I can help.”
From the popular action game ‘GOD EATER 2’ comes a Nendoroid of the popular heroine who debuted in the original game, Alisa! She is of course equipped with her ‘God Arc’ weapon, which comes in both its standard ‘Blade Form’, as well as its ‘Gun Form’ and ‘Predator Form’! All the forms keep their imposing appearances even in the cute Nendoroid size!
But that’s not all – she also comes with various other parts including the Aragami ‘Ogretail’, as well as three different expressions – her standard face, a shouting face for combat scenes and an embarrassed face! A huge collection of parts to help fans recreate their favorite scenes from the game, and experience the unique GOD EATER atmosphere in the cutest form ever!
Considering the plethora of weapons that Nendoroid Alisa brings, I think you can probably tell that her price will be a bit steep. Yep, she is priced at 5500 Yen and scheduled for July release.
Are you getting her, Nendonesian?
I just realized that it has been about three weeks since the last time I posted a news article! So sorry about that, Nendonesian, I have been extremely busy with my works and other activities for the recent weeks. XD
Anyway, in case you have not known yet, Nendoroid May’n has been announced officially by GSC and she has already gotten her own page in the GSC website!
Commemorating ten years of May’n!
In commemoration of the upcoming ‘May’n Road to 10th Anniversary Japan & World Tour 2014-2015 “dots and lines”‘ comes a Nendoroid of May’n herself! Her well-known hairstyle and trademark short pants have all been converted into Nendoroid size as accurately as possible for fans to enjoy!
Her microphone is included together with special hand parts based off actual poses from her live performances, allowing you to pose her ready to perform on stage! A hand towel from her live performances is also included for her to hold! On the other hand, she also comes with a delicious taiyaki allowing you to pose her as the (self-proclaimed) Goodwill Ambassador for Taiyaki! Simply choose between the serious or the more playful May’n whenever you like!
Nendoroid May’n will be exclusively available for purchase (4400 Yen) at the “dots and lines” tour to celebrate her upcoming 10th anniversary. Note that she has already been available at the first concert in Kanagawa CLUB CITTA on February 23.
No info regarding the possibility of the pre-order version of Nendoroid May’n yet.
Yes, Miss Monochrome‘s dream to become a Nendoroid has already been fulfilled in the Winter WonFes last Sunday. However it seems that she will have two versions: the normal white-colored version and the black one, under the name: Nendoroid Miss Monochrome: Poker Black version.
Looking at the info board, I guess the Nendoroid will be bundled with either (or both) of the Blu-ray and DVD of the Miss Monochrome: The Animation.
Just a refresher, the following shot is the prototype of normal, white version of Nendoroid Miss Monochrome, seen at Winter WonFes 2014.
Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? XD
Ah … time really runs so fast, now that we have already reached the Winter Wonder Festival 2014. A wave of new Nendoroids will be on-display here, along with some leftovers from the last WonFes, so as usual, we will keep you updated on the new Nendoroid line-up displayed on the event.
UPDATE: More photos!
It seems that getting the Nendoroid treatment is currently trending for Japanese artists who usually sings the theme songs for anime series. After Yukari Tamura, Mizuki Nana, and T.M.Revolution, now May’n will also get a Nendoroid version of herself.
Similar to the other Nendoroid singers, Nendoroid May’n will also be sold exclusively at her upcoming concert “Dots and Lines” for 4400 Yen. It is still unknown whether or not she would be available for global pre-order like Nendoroid Yukari Tamura.
We got a few close up shots of the Nendoroid after the break.
Thinking of pre-ordering the upcoming WonFes products like Nendoroid Snow Miku: Magical Snow version or Nendoroid Tomoe Mami: School Uniform version? Well, if you happen to live in USA or Canada, then you are in luck, as GSC has launched a promo campaign, waiving the 2000 Yen shipping fee to that countries if you pre-order select WonFes items at Good Smile Online Shop.
Nendoroid Yoshino is highly anticipated by both Date A Live fans and Nendoroid collectors alike. I guess she was the trending topic last week – when she got the Kahotan’s preview and available for pre-order afterwards. XD
The spirit with the Astral Dress ‘El’, who manipulates water and ice.
From the anime with an upcoming second season, ‘Date A Live’ comes a Nendoroid of the spirit, Yoshino! She comes with three expressions including her standard face, a frightened crying face as well as a blushing chibi face! Optional parts include her puppet ‘Yoshinon’, as well as a chibi snow rabbit sized version of Zadkiel.
The trademark large ears on her hood are fitted with joints for all sorts of different poses, and her hood and coat can also be removed using an alternate upper body part, allowing you to display her in a one-piece dress instead!
Oh, and she can also remove her hood and coat! XD
The super cute Nendoroid Yoshino will be released on May 2014, priced at 4200 Yen.
Well, are you getting this adorable Nendoroid too, Nendonesian?
