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? ^^
