Bootleg Nendoroid makers surely never give up, don’t they? Well, today GSC has just posted another bootleg comparison for one of their Nendoroid. This time, it is Nendoroid Menma‘s turn to be analyzed in-depth along with her counterfeit version.
Note: Photo of bootleg version is the left one, while the genuine one is the right photo.
*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! ^^
Note: Credits of all pics goes to original photo owners
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?
Aspromised, both Nendoroid Menma (Honma Meiko) from Ano Hana and Nendoroid Charlotte E. Yeager (Shirley) are available for reservation order starting today. Menma is scheduled for late February 2012 release with a price tag of 3500 Yen. Meanwhile, Shirley will be released on late January 2012, priced at 4000 Yen … and yes, she will be manufactured by GSC, instead of Phat Company. ^^
Well, which one will you pre-order, Nendonesian? ^^
The highly anticipated Nendoroid of Ano Hana‘s heroine – Nendoroid Menma has finally got the preview treatment by Mikatan. Three expressions, a couple of flowers (with stands), her diary, as well as the optional body parts are included to re-create various scenes from the anime. She is simply too adorable!! ^^
Anyway, she will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow … along with Nendoroid Shirley. Kindly visit Mikatan’s blog to view more pics of the adorable ghost. ^^
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. ^^;
Phat! Company‘s Nendoroid Ika Musume will be officially announced soon.
Nendoroid Morishima Haruka and Nendoroid Nanasaki Ai from Amagami will be announced soon.
Nendoroid Menma (Honma Meiko) from Ano Hana is coming soon.
Nendoroid Date Masamune‘s resale is still uncertain, but not impossible. XD
Nendoroid Sonic The Hedgehog is made to celebrate Sonic’s 20th anniversary.
Nendoroid Yune‘s faceplates are supposed to be compatible with most Nendoroid.
Nendoroid Sayaka Miki and Nendoroid Sakura Kyouko from Puella Magi Madoka Magica are currently in the works.
Aside from the info, there is an interesting pic posted as well:
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? ^^
The monthly magazine Anime Style vol.6 will have Nendoroid Petit Menma (Honma Meiko) included in the package as well. It seems that the popular novel/anime series Ano Hana will be getting the spotlight in this magazine. Anyway, here is the description from its official page:
Monthly Anime Style’s 6th issue features a special look at ‘Ano Hana’!
