*ahem* Yes, I know that the last time I do the Random Gallery post was … umm … almost a year ago. Nevertheless, I do not think I will post this monthly, but I will try to post one when I come across some interesting Nendoroid photos. ^^

Anyway, this time’s gallery consists of mostly the newly released Nendoroid, such as Honma Meiko (Menma), Charlotte E.Yeager (Shirley), and Desert Army-san. Enjoy! ^^

Nendoroid Petit Sawa-chan and Menma are Delayed

Anime Style vol.5, which includes Nendoroid Petit Yamanaka Sawako from K-ON!, is supposed to be released by this month, but it has been pushed to December, while Anime Style vol.6 with Nendoroid Petit Honma Meiko (Menma) from Ano Hana is delayed from December to January next year.

I guess the delay is caused by the strong demand for both magazine issues, forcing GSC to adjust the publish schedule. Well, what do you think about the delay, Nendonesian?

The highly anticipated Nendoroid of Ano Hana‘s heroine – Nendoroid Menma has finally got the preview treatment by Mikatan.

Nendoroid Sayaka Miki, Aragaki Ayase, and Menma are Displayed During The NicoNico Live Broadcast

Nendoroid Menma

As predicted, the latest GSC’s live NicoNico broadcast brings along a couple of new Nendoroid announcements. The first one is the highly anticipated Nendoroid Menma (a.k.a Honma Meiko) from Ano Hana. A couple of optional parts are spotted, such as three expressions, flowers, a pile of cakes, as well as a (music?) book Menma’s diary. Considering her production-sample-lookalike stand base, it looks like she will be ready for pre-order shortly. Anyway, did you notice the flower-pattern on her stand base? XD

Nendoroid Aragaki Ayase

Nendoroid Aragaki Ayase from OreImo made an appearance on the live broadcast as well. Three expressions (albeit missing the famous yandere expression XD) as well as a handcuff, a school bag, a cellphone, and a magazine, are all displayed there. It seems that she is still a master figure though, so her pre-order should have to wait a little further. ^^

Nendoroid Sayaka Miki

A prototype of Nendoroid Sayaka Miki from the anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica is also shown on the broadcast as well. Not much details are presented there, but further info should be available soon … I guess. ^^;

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? ^^

Custom-made Nendoroid Mikatan?

Custom-made Nendoroid Mikatan?

Whoa … is that a custom Nendoroid Mikatan? She looks really adorable there, along with her trusty DSLR camera, chair, kitty-slippers, and a cardboard containing the reviewed product. DO WANT! XD

Unfortunately that photo has been removed from the post for some unknown reasons – perhaps she doesn’t want you to spam her with emails to ask about it. The photo popped up in my RSS reader along with the post earlier, but it seems that the real post has been updated, sans the photo.

In any case … what do you think about the revealed Nendo-info, Nendonesian? Any thoughts about the custom Nendoroid Mikatan as well? ^^
