Uno Uzume from Fantasista Doll is going to get a friend soon, as Sasara will be joining her soon in the Nendoroid realm. Yep, Nendoroid Sasara was spotted to be displayed alongside Nendoroid Uno Uzume. Ah … it reminds me to watch Fantasista Doll to get to know further about the characters. XD
Well, what do you think about the Nendoroid?

I guess it is only a matter of (short) time before Nendoroid Alisa from the popular action game God Eater 2 gets the official announcement for her pre-order availability as the official Twitter account of the game has tweeted a photo of the fully-painted Nendoroid – which you can see above.
There is one more photo below, which shows her face a bit more clearly with a nicer angle. XD
The second Nendoroid from Kantai Collection ~KanColle~ is finally available. Yep, it’s Nendoroid Akagi!
1st Carrier Divison Akagi, heading out!
From ‘Kantai Collection ~KanColle~’ comes a Nendoroid of the aircraft carrier, Akagi! The ship deck board, radar and mast she carries with her are all included to display by her side. Three aeroplanes are included to display around her to represent her as an aircraft carrier, and special effect parts to display her soaring over water are also included to recreate her evasion animation!
All these parts together allow Akagi to be displayed as the military flagship she is, however she also comes with a huge bowl of rice, a table set and a bucket filled with bauxite to display the more comical side of her as well – just pick the Akagi you prefer!
Bringing plenty of parts and accessories, Nendoroid Akagi is priced at 4500 Yen and scheduled for May 2014 release.
Similar to Nendoroid Shimakaze, you can get some additional stuff – special box and stand base – if you pre-order Nendoroid Akagi from Good Smile Online Shop (Japan only).
Nendoroid Uno Uzume from the anime series Fantasista Doll has been previewed by Kahotan and has been available for pre-order since last week.
“Reveal your true form to me now!”
From the anime series ‘Fantasista Doll’ comes a Nendoroid of Uzume Uno, the main character who makes contracts with the ‘Fantasista Dolls’ summoned from cards.
She comes with three expressions including a smiling face, upset face and kissing expression based on the ending theme’s illustrations. She also comes with parts to recreate the famous drum roll scene from the series!
She is scheduled for April 2014 release and priced at 3800 Yen.
Bonus pic: Ohashi Ayaka, Uzume Uno’s seiyuu in the anime with the Nendoroid.
When I ask some Nendoroid collectors this question:
“Why did you get this Nendoroid?”
“For what reason did you get that Nendoroid?”
One of the common answers is:
“Because I like the outfit.”
“His/her clothes are so cute!”
“That frilly dress looks really lovely!”
Outfits, clothes, dresses, uniforms – so some collectors are getting Nendoroids solely because the “body” parts looks nice. *cough* Me included *cough* XD
Well, if you are one of those who think of getting Nendoroid Plus Sumomo (which comes bundled with a Nintendo DS game) because you want to get her pajamas, then you can simply wait for the Nendoroid More: Pajama Dresses to be released instead.
Along with the design of Nendoroid Gilgamesh (Archer), Nendoroid Saber Bride (Fate/extra CCC) was also one of the surprising announcement by GSC from the TYPE-MOON department. XD
Well, it seems that our wait is finally over as she is finally announced officially and has been available for pre-order since last week.
“I shall now confess — I truly love thee!”
From the popular game ‘Fate/EXTRA CCC’ comes a Nendoroid of Saber Bride.
She comes three expressions including a smiling expression, a sideways glancing expression and even a special expression illustrated by wadarco, the game’s character designer, for a more chibi looking Saber! Her sword, ‘Aestus Estus: The Embryonic Flame’ is also included, allowing for various different poses for fans to enjoy!
Some folks mentioned that her belly looks a bit chubby … but it does not matter for me, as she looks absolutely gorgeous and cute – do you see her 3rd expression? … oh, and that musical note part attached on her ahoge is simply too adorable! XD
Nendoroid Saber Bride will be released on April 2014, bearing the price tag of 4000 Yen.

If you have been waiting for Nendoroid Taiyo Akari (Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou) since the Summer WonFes, then your wait is finally over as she has been announced officially and available for pre-order since last week.
The girl chosen by ‘The Sun’ Tarot card.

So you have already got your hands on the Nendoroid Shizue (Isabelle)?

Nendoroid Shizue (Isabelle): Winter version from the popular Nintendo 3DS game Animal Crossing: New Leaf is scheduled for April 2014 release and priced at 3800 Yen.
Okay, so it seems that GSC will be ending this year by releasing (or delaying XD) many figures. According to the release schedule, there are a whooping 15 Nendoroids, 2 Petite sets, and 2 Nendoroid More parts scheduled for December. Whoa …
Well, personally, I am anticipating for the releases of Nendoroid Flonne, Nendoroid Etna, Nendoroid Saber Alter: Super Movable Edition, and Nendoroid Shinku: Rozen Maiden Set among the other Nendoroids. Oh, and I think GSC should release Nendoroid Iron Man Mark 42: Hero’s Edition + Hall of Armor Set after delaying it from November. XD
It seems that Nendoroid Yatogami Tohka will be released shortly, or to be exact, December 5th, as Kahotan posted a review of the production sample for this lovely Nendoroid from the Date A Live series.
That is how the package content looks like. Too bad she does not get optional legs. XD
Anyway, there is one more interesting thing revealed in Kahotan’s post.
“I… I’m not Yoshinon. I’m Yoshino. Yoshinon is my best friend.”
Oh … that voice! Is she the next Nendoroid in line from Date A Live series?
Yes, according to Kahotan, Nendoroid Yoshino is already making her way into the production process. Ah … I cannot wait to see how the completely colored version will look like! She must be super cute! XD
