Yep, we are having a double Nendoroid release today. The first one is Max Factory‘s Nendoroid Taneshima Popura from WORKING!!. Popura will be the first staff to join Wagnaria, but it seems that she has to wait, because the family restaurant will not be finished until next month. XD
Nendoroid Date Masamune and her box
Meanwhile, Phat Company has also let loose of their re-sale edition of Nendoroid Date Masamune from Sengoku BASARA series. As we have known, he will come with a revised stand base, which is supposedly much better than the old one. Don’t forget that Nendoroid Sanada Yukimura is also looking to join shortly. XD
Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? Are you waiting for either (or both) of them? ^^
If you have read our review of Nendoroid Date Masamune, you should have known that his base adapter is a little quirky. Based on my own experience, it is kinda hard to dock Masamune onto the base and it is not too stable as well.
Fortunately, Phat Company will have this problem fixed on the upcoming re-sale version of the one-eyed dragon‘s Nendoroid rendetion. They promise better stability and easier docking with this improved base adapter. Note that they only modify the base adapter; no changes to Masamune’s body or other parts.
As for those who have purchased the first edition of this Nendoroid, it seems that Phat Company is currently looking into various solution to distribute the updated base adapter (excluding the pedestal and pillar). No further info has been confirmed though.
As promised, Phat Company‘s Nendoroid duo from Sengoku BASARA are available for reservation starting today. Both Nendoroid Sanada Yukimura and Date Masamune (re-sale) are scheduled for March 2012 release and priced identically at 3500 Yen.
Well, what are you waiting for? Secure your reservation A.S.A.P! ^^
Nendoroid Sanada Yukimura (vs. Nendoroid Date Masamune)
So you have always wanted a Nendoroid Date Masamune, but could not grab him when he was released early this year? Well, today is your lucky day, as Mikatan has confirmed that he will be put on re-sale on the same day as …. Nendoroid Sanada Yukimura‘s release day. Wow! XD
Anyway, the real news for today is the quick preview photo session of Phat Company‘s Nendoroid Sanada Yukimura from Sengoku BASARA series. He will come with three expressions: determined face, inspired face, and regretful face. Obviously, Yukimura’s beloved spears are also included in the set, and they can be connected to form a long spear as well. He will also bring two headbands: straight one and fluttering one.
Nendoroid Sanada Yukimura will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow, so remember to pay a visit to your favorite figure stores tomorrow. Anyway, what do you think about Nendoroid Sanada Yukimura? XD

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 One-Eyed Dragon is not just for show, you see?”
For you who are familiar with anime/game series Sengoku BASARA, you should recognize this quote from the legendary samurai from the Clan of Date. Well, before we get into our review of Nendoroid Date Masamune, we will dig a little into his profile first. Note that Nendoroid Date Masamune is based of the design from Capcom’s Sengoku BASARA, so it might not reflect the actual facts of the real person. ^^
