Stack of Nendoroid Sanzenin Nagi's boxes
The third Nendoroid from Hayate no Gotoku series – Nendoroid Sanzenin Nagi has finally hit Japanese stores starting today, just in line with her official release schedule. For you who have pre-ordered her, expect to receive a notification to complete your payment soon. ^^
Anyway … Nendoroid Asakura Nemu is mysteriously missing in action, although her official release schedule should be similar to Nendoroid Sanzenin Nagi. ^^;
Nendoroid Petit Sanzenin Nagi, Katsura Hinagiku, Nishizawa Ayumu, Maria
The Nendoroid Petit from Hayate no Gotoku series was last seen in the 21st Prize Fair, back then in September last year. Yep, Nendoroid Petit Sanzenin Nagi, Katsura Hinagiku, Nishizawa Ayumu, and Maria are now seen in the hands of a few folks at Japan. Well, hopefully these cute Petits could cheer up the atmosphere in Japan a little after the recent quake-tsunami disaster. ^^
(Thanks to everyone for the correction! ^^)
Nendoroid Ayasaki Hermione
The infamous trap character from Hayate no Gotoku, Nendoroid Ayasaki Hermione (Hayate) finally gets a release date! Yep, previously (s)he has been pushed back from the initial scheduled release date of December 2010. Anyway, this Max Factory-bound Nendoroid is going to be released on February 10, so you still have a plenty of time to prepare your greenies before (s)he is released. ^^
What? You did not pre-order her? Well, let me share a pic to convince you:
Magical Girl Azunyan!
Whoa … i-i-i-i-isn’t that Azunyan … in Magical Girl version!? ヽ(*ﾟдﾟ)ノ
(I am not sure that the pre-order for Hermione is still available …)
What do you think, Nendonesian? ^^
Face-plate-attaching problem on Nendoroid Katsura Hinagiku
It seems that many customers who purchased Nendoroid Katsura Hinagiku are complaining about difficulty on attaching/detaching the face plate off Hinagiku’s head. Yukiwo Ageta has just proposed a solution which might be able to solve that issue. Here is the translated tweet of Ageta-san:
If you buy from daisy Nendoroid, many voices will be asked to do difficult and tight face recombination. Because I like a harder material itself. Please try and hand-painted cream and toothpick grooves to receive portions of the ribs of the face. Much easier.
Yeah, I know that the translation is kinda messy, but I think I can get the general idea. Basically we simply need to smear some kind of hand lotion to a toothpick and put it on the plug holes at Hinagiku’s head, so that the face plate could slide into the head easily.
I have not received my ordered Nendoroid Katsura Hinagiku yet, so I cannot confirm that Ageta-san’s solution would work. For you who have played with Hinagiku and got this problem, well, now you know how to fix it. ^^
Nendoroid Katsura Hinagiku packaging
The packaging of Nendoroid Katsura Hinagiku from Hayate no Gotoku series has popped off Yukiwo Ageta’s tweet just now. Yep, Max Factory‘s first Nendoroid is going to be released in a few days, after being delayed from last month’s release. With Christmas due this week, Hinagiku-chan would be a perfect gift for anyone; don’t you think so? ^^
Now where is my Nendoroid Dead Master? (≧∇≦)/
Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Absolute HMO Edition
I guess it has been expected that there would be some delayed releases because of the large variety of Nendoroid that due in this month. Well, I did not think THIS PARTICULAR NENDOROID would be delayed though. ^^;
As you can read in the title, yep, the release date of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Absolute HMO Edition has been officially delayed to January 2011 – together with Nendoroid Mickey Mouse, while Nendoroid Dead Master and Nendoroid Katsura Hinagiku are scheduled to be released on December 22 (from December 21 and December 24, respectively).
Miku HMO’s delayed release is really disappointing, at least for me personally. Well, I hope that her QC would be better with this delay though. What do you think about it Nendonesian? T_______T
Note: Complete release date for December 2010 can be seen on this page

Nendoroid Date Masamune
Almost out of nowhere, Nendoroid Date Masamune from Sengoku BASARA is suddenly available for pre-order starting today!

Nendoroid Ayasaki Hermione
So you have pre-ordered Nendoroid Katsura Hinagiku? Now you can reserve the main character of Hayate no Gotoku, Ayasaki Hayate …. dressed as a girl inside Nendoroid Ayasaki Hermione. He comes with three face plates, from his standard expression, to a crying expression and of course the most important embarrassed face. To complete his girly wardrobe he also comes with a bunny-ear Alice band and of course his magical rod! But for those of you who really want him in his standard butler form, an extra body featuring his butler clothes is also included.
FYI, this Nendoroid is made by Max Factory, instead of Good Smile Company, thus the higher price tag of 3800 Yen – the same as Nendoroid Katsura Hinagiku. Hermione is set to release on late December 2010 to complete your
bloody exciting year’s end.
Nendoroid Hirasawa Ui
I guess you know that she’s coming. Yep, Nendoroid Hirasawa Ui is available for pre-order starting today. A total of three expressions are included: A smiling face, an ecstatic expression as well as a dizzy expression. She also comes with both her middle school and the Sakuragaoka High school uniforms, so you can display her wearing either one! Also included is the ribbon used by Yui in the last episode of K-ON! first season as a disguise, allowing you to recreate her disguise. She’s available for 3500 Yen and scheduled to release on late January 2011.
So, have you made your mind? Gotta catch ’em all! ^^
