(Custom) Nendoroid Black Frost is Spotted

Nendoroid Jack Frost and Black Frost

Nendoroid Jack Frost and Black Frost

Yes, I put the “brackets” outside the “Custom” word, because I am not sure whether this one is really a custom Nendoroid or an upcoming one – eventually. Why? Because the pics are posted in the blog run by Max Factory’s staff. The blog is intended for internal use though, so any contents posted there are usually considered as personal thought (a.k.a unofficial). XD

Well, as you can see in the pic, Nendoroid Jack Frost is standing beside an evil-looking version of him, known as Nendoroid Black Frost. If you are fans of Persona and/or Shin Megami Tensei series, I think you should have known about him. ^^

Let me take a quote from Persona 3 FES Compendium to describe him better: (reference)

“A Jack Frost that wished for evil powers. This powerful demon is born when a cute Jack Frost remembers its nature as a demon.”

Kindly see all of his pics after the break, if you are interested. ^^

After being teased initially at the last year’s WonFes, Nendoroid Jack Frost is finally up for pre-order. Yep, the famous icon from Shin Megami Tensei series will come with a fragment of ice to recreate the scene when he was casting an ice magic. He also brings along a set of additional legs to pose him in sitting position. Adorable! ^^

Anyway, here is the description from his official page:

Hee-ho! I’m sure we’ll make a great team!
From the game, ‘Shin Megami Tensei’ comes a Nendoroid of the lovable ice spirit, Jack Frost.

He comes with a variety of optional parts including a fragment of ice that he can create using his magic, as well as a separate set of arms to pose him using the magic.

Nendoroid Jack Frost is Next on Production?

Nendoroid and figma listing

Nendoroid and figma listing

Well, it is probably not a new info, as Nendoroid Jack Frost‘s name has been mentioned in last summer WonFes, and our Release Schedule page has already had Jack Frost in the record as well. But there was no official confirmation (or re-confirmation) from GSC about it.

A snapshot of recent Nendoroid and figma listing revealed another mention of the cute Persona from Persona 3 there. So … would Jack Frost enter Nendoroid world soon? Let’s wait for a good answer from GSC. ^^

Are you interested to get him, Nendonesian? ^^
