HobbyStock has just confirmed that they postpone the anticipated Nendoroid Complete File‘s release to June.

Yep, that means it will be a bad news for Saber fans, as the bundled Nendoroid Saber: Casual Clothes version will be pushed to June as well. XD

Anyway, for a quick refresher: Nendoroid Saber: Casual Clothes version is included with Nendoroid Complete File book, priced at 5000 Yen and initially scheduled for May release, and now it has been delayed for another month.

Any thoughts about it, Nendonesian?

Ah … now it makes more sense as to why Nendoroid Saber: Casual Clothes version is going to be priced at a hefty 5000 Yen. Yep, it seems that she will be bundled with official Nendoroid guidebook, titled Nendoroid Complete File, hence she is going to be an exclusive/limited run as well.

Seeing that her scheduled release date is May – which is about 2 months from now, I guess she will be announced officially by Mikatan soon and her pre-order should be available shortly afterwards. XD

Well, as a Saber fan, she is a must-have for me. How about you, Nendonesian? ^^

OOT note: Nendoroid Akechi Kokoro‘s Nendoroid number is #226. XD

Nendoroid Yamada Aoi from WORKING!! made her magazine debut last month, and now she re-appears in fully-colored fashion, as seen in the post-WonFes NicoNico broadcast. Nothing new here, except for the availability info – she will be released on July with the standard Max Factory pricing of 3800 Yen.

Meanwhile, the long awaited Nendoroid Ika Musume is now shown in various pose and expressions. The good news is she will be available as standard release, scheduled for July release with a price tag of 3500 Yen. ^^

I have a feeling that Ika-chan and Yamada-chan will be announced on Mikatan’s blog soon. ^^

The super movable Nendoroid Saber: Casual Clothes version from TYPE-MOON‘s Fate series made her first appearance in the magazine scan.

No release date is mentioned there, but she will be priced at 5000 Yen that makes her the most expensive standard Nendoroid to-date.

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian?

Since she was seen for the first time at Summer WonFes 2010 (in full-color!!), Nendoroid Saber: Casual Clothes version had been missing from both WonFes and other figure-related events. A few of us may even have thought that she was going to be cancelled.

Well, this super-movable version of Saber made a surprise re-appearance in the latest Winter WonFes 2012, along with some new tidbits of her parts and accessories as well as her release info. See it for yourself after the break. ^^
