I have to admit that it is kinda rare to see a custom Nendoroid from Girls und Panzer, but it seems that there are someone who does precisely that. Yep, instead of the officialNendoroid Nishizumi Miho who wears her school uniform, this one will have her wear her jacket.
Did you see the last pic in our review of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Yukata version? Yes, that custom Nendoroid Yukata Miku wearing the yellow-ish yukata can now be examined in a closer look, as the maker posted the pics recently.
Mikatan posted the first part of an in-depth tutorial about how to paint a Nendoroid expression. However, since the blog post uses some images from ImageShack, a few of them are only displaying ‘frozen frog’ due to the ‘domain unregistered’ issue, thus making the tutorial a bit uncompleted. XD
Our reader Kwang put a request to repost the tutorial along with completed pics (taken from the Japanese version of the blog post) … and I thought, “Why not?” as long as it would help many Nendonesian as well.
Well then, kindly read the tutorial after the break.
Custom Nendoroid Ciel Phantomhive: Komadori version
Previously, we have already had Nendoroid Ciel Phantomhive dressed as Aliciel. Today, I am going to feature another lovely custom Nendoroid of Ciel, called as Nendoroid Ciel Phantomhive: Komadori version.
Yes, I put the “brackets” outside the “Custom” word, because I am not sure whether this one is really a custom Nendoroid or an upcoming one – eventually. Why? Because the pics are posted in the blog run by Max Factory’s staff. The blog is intended for internal use though, so any contents posted there are usually considered as personal thought (a.k.a unofficial). XD
Well, as you can see in the pic, Nendoroid Jack Frost is standing beside an evil-looking version of him, known as Nendoroid Black Frost. If you are fans of Persona and/or Shin Megami Tensei series, I think you should have known about him. ^^
Let me take a quote from Persona 3 FES Compendium to describe him better: (reference)
“A Jack Frost that wished for evil powers. This powerful demon is born when a cute Jack Frost remembers its nature as a demon.”
Kindly see all of his pics after the break, if you are interested. ^^
Nendoroid Ciel Phantomhive was originally released on 2010, following the success of Kuroshitsuji (a.k.a Black Butler) series. Nendoroid Sebastian Michaelis was also released a year before Ciel, and getting resale simultanously with Ciel’s release.
Apparently, a fan decided to make another version of Nendoroid Ciel, based on the Ciel in Wonderland is the second OVA of the series, adapted from the well-known novel Alice in Wonderland. This custom Nendoroid is called as Nendoroid Ciel: Alice version – or shall we call it Aliciel? XD
