Nendoroid Petit Ikoku Meiro no Croisee set
Well, we have been teased by this Petit set from anime series Ikoku Meiro no Croisee several times previously, and now they are available for pre-order starting today! Woot woot! XD
Dubbed as Nendoroid Petit Ikoku Meiro no Croisee set, it will be manufactured by SEVEN TWO, instead of GSC. As you can see in the pic, the set will contain Petit rendetion of Yune, Claude Claudel, and Alice Blanche. Here is the description from its official page (translated):
From the TV Anime title “Ikoku Meiro no Croisee” are Yune, Claude and Alice as a Nendoroid Petite set! As optional parts, Yune comes with a picture book given to her by Claude, Claude comes with his apron, and hammer parts, and for Alice, she comes with tea set parts!
The Petit set will be priced at 2100 Yen and scheduled for late April 2012 release.
Well, what do you think about the Petit set, Nendonesian? ^^
Note: Your wait is finally over, Lorraine! ^^
Nendoroid Yune (left: official pic, right: fixed)
Do Nendoroid Yune‘s eyes look slightly too big? Well, to be honest, that is what I feel when I saw her for the first time at the WonFes. Apparently, some Japanese folks are thinking about the same thing, and they decided to “refine” Yune’s eyes. IMHO, Yune looks a lot better with her eyes being re-adjusted there. ^^
The following is a comparison pic of Yune’s eyes position being adjusted:

As if that wasn’t enough, some other folks posted their solution for the “problematic” eyes as well:

That said, I am still placing my pre-order for Nendoroid Yune because it is not that much of an issue IMHO. Well, what about you, Nendonesian? What do you think about Nendoroid Yune’s eyes? ^^
The main heroine of novel/anime series Ikoku Meiro no Croisee is available for pre-order starting today. Yep, you can secure your pre-order of the adorable Nendoroid Yune at your favorite figure retailers today. She is available for 3500 Yen and scheduled for late January 2012 release.

… and here is the official description from her official English page:
The honest young girl who always tries her very best!
From the anime set in 19th century Paris, ‘Ikoku Meiro no Croisée’ comes a Nendoroid of Yune, the gentle Japanese girl who helps out in Claude’s shop.
Her trademark kimono has been shrunk down to Nendoroid size, but still keeps all its delicate details. She also comes with three expressions, the picture book that Claude gave to her as a present, an umbrella, cleaning headband and apron. She even comes with an extra lower body part that allows her to be posed in the bowing position from the first episode!
A huge set of optional parts to help you recreate your favorite scenes of Yune trying her very best in a foreign land!
Well, have you secured your pre-order on her as well, Nendonesian? ^^
We have just seen Nendoroid Yune‘s 2nd expression yesterday, and today she has been announced officially by Mikatan – that was quick!! XD Anyway, it seems that the Nendoroid rendetion of Ikoku Meiro no Croisee‘s heroine will bring along many parts and accessories there. Apart from her adorable 3 faceplates (one of them is pretty epic IMO) and optional body parts, she will also bring her umbrella, “Les Petites Abeilles” book, headband/kerchief, and apron. Nice! ^^
Mikatan said that she will be available on GSC site (read: pre-order open) tomorrow. Well, what do you think, Nendonesian?

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? Are you looking forward to see this Nendoroid’s official announcement as well?
(Thanks for the news tip, Shiddo! ^^)
Nendoroid Petit Yune
UPDATE: She is not an exclusive after all, and your usual figure store should be accepting pre-orders by now. (Thanks for the tip, Shiddo! ^^)
We have got confirmation regarding the absence of this version of Nendoroid Petit Yune in the last WonFes, after being shown along with the other three Petits at the Japan Expo. Well, it turned out that she will be
an exclusive product, or specifically a mail-in order, and bundled with Ikoku Meiro no Croisee TV Anime guidebook.
The Petit itself will include two exchangable bodies, an optional hair parts, as well as a French bread. The whole set is priced at 2000 Yen and scheduled for March 2012 release. If I guess it correctly (I cannot read Japanese after all XD) the closing date for the pre-order is October 7.
Here is the mail-in pre-order form in case you are interested, or you could visit your usual online figure store (recommended) to secure your pre-order. ^^
Anyone of you getting this adorable Petit rendetion of Yune – along with the bundle? ^^

Another weekly Petit teaser from Ikoku Meiro no Croisee … this time it is Nendoroid Claude Claudel‘s turn to get the spotlight. He is displayed with his hand holding a hammer – now he is looking more like a craftman, as seen on the TV animation. ^^
Anyway, a new info is also revealed about the Petit set. It seems that Nendoroid Petit Ikoku Meiro no Croisee set will be made by Seven Two and possibly distributed by GSC. The included characters are Claude Claudel, Alice Blanche, and this Yune. Sadly, the release date and pricing are yet-to-be-announced. ^^;
