Special Website to Celebrate Nendoroid no.300 is Open

Nendoroid series

Nendoroid Gumako‘s #200 numbering was just given away last year, and here we are now looking toward Nendoroid #300. Time sure flies away quickly, huh? XD

Anyway, it seems that GSC is going to celebrate this milestone and throw a “party” to reveal what character will be given the honor to be GSC’s 300th Nendoroid.

Here is the special microsite made specifically for this occassion: http://nendoroid300.goodsmile.info

Currently, the most interesting stuff is the Nendoroid Quiz section, which test our knowledge about Nendoroid. The “practice” quiz is already available now, providing you with 5 random questions with 3 answer options. I Google-Translated the quiz page to challenge it earlier.

Visit this page: http://nendoroid300.goodsmile.info/quiz_top.html if you are interested to test your knowledge on Nendoroid. XD

Anyway, what is your guess about who is going to be Nendoroid #300, Nendonesian?

(Thanks for the news tip, Kendric Koh!)

Nendoroid More: Clip Stands – Another New Way to Display Nendoroid

Nendoroid More: Clip Stands

Not keen on displaying your Nendoroid with the new suction stands? Well, here is another alternative by GSC: Nendoroid More: Clip Stands.

As its name suggests, the stand’s main feature is the clip, which can be easily attached on the edge of your laptop’s display or any other places.

Here is the product description:

More fun ways to display your Nendoroids!
These new clip stands bring Nendoroid fans a brand new way of displaying their favorite characters! The clip can be easily attached to the frame of your cabinet or the edge of your laptop, allowing you to display your Nendoroids in places you never even considered using before!

The arm attached to the clip is articulated, allowing you to move it in any direction so that you can place the Nendoroids exactly where you want them! Each stand comes with joints for both Nendoroids and Nendoroid Petites, so you can display any of your favorite characters from either series!

This product was developed by this year’s new employees at Good Smile Company.

Similar to the suction stand, the clip stand also has three color options: white, pink, and (green) mint. The stand is priced at 500 Yen each, and it will also include both regular Nendoroid and Petites stands.

Well, what do you think about it, Nendonesian? ^^
