Shanghai branch of Good Smile Company quietly posted three Nendoroid that are going for a re-sale, i.e: Nendoroid Hatsune Miku, Nendoroid Kagamine Rin, and Nendoroid Kagamine Len. It seems that the demand for these three Nendoroid are still high despite the fact that they already have the supposedly-superior Cheerful versions. XD
Anyway, this three Nendoroid re-sale are scheduled for release on July. Note that the re-sale is only available for some retailers, so your fave figure stores might or might not get it. XD
Nendoroid Petit Racing Miku, Rin, and Luka (2011 version)
Mikatan has finally announced Nendoroid Petit Racing Miku: 2011 version officially today. Similar to the previous racing-themed Vocaloid Petits, this set also has Racing Rin and Luka to accompany Miku.
So … what’s inside? The winning trophy, a bottle of champagne, a pull-back car and the podium stage are included in the package. It looks pretty loaded there, doesn’t it? XD
Another expression and some optional body parts for Miku
Miku gets a special treatment here, as she will also come with an optional second expression as well as a couple of optional body parts (and umbrella). ^^
Kindly visit Mikatan’s blog to see more pics of this adorable set of Nendoroid Petits. Anyway, Mikatan mentioned that the set will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow. I hope this set is a regular release though. XD
Since 2009, Good Smile Company Racing has always produced a Racing-themed Nendoroid Hatsune Miku and a set of Nendoroid Petit Racing Vocaloid – consisting of Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, and Megurine Luka in racing-themed outfit. When they announcedNendoroid Racing Miku: 2011 version, I assumed that the Petit version would have followed shortly after. I was mistaken, as they did not announce anything at all regarding the Petit in 2011.
Well, it seems that GSR were waiting for the GT victory to announce the good news. Yep, Nendoroid Petit Racing Vocaloid 2011 Set was finally announced today yesterday, at GSC’s live NicoNico broadcast. The set consists of Nendoroid Petit Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, and Megurine Luka, all in their 2011 Racing outfit. The winning trophy, a bottle of champagne, and the Petit-sized Miku BMW are also included in the package, as well as second expression for Miku and the usual umbrella(s). I have no idea whether the podium stage will also be included or not, though. XD
More pics of other Nendoroid displayed at the broadcast can be seen after the break. ^^
According to the initial schedule, we are supposed to be having around 13 Nendoroid and 3 Petit sets releases within this month, and six of them have been released in the recent few weeks.
Well, for you who are curious to see how the box design of Nendoroid Konjiki no Yami, Nendoroid Mikazuki Yozora, Nendoroid Haqua, Nendoroid Kagamine Rin & Len: Cheerful version, or Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga, kindly skip past the break to see a gallery featuring all of their photos along with their respective boxes. XD
Yep, you read it correctly: Nendoroid Kagamine Rin and Len (Cheerful version) are joining the Nendoroid release wave of 2012. This pair are initially scheduled to be start shipping on December 27th, but GSC finally decided to delay it to late January 2012 because “a problem was discovered in an inspection prior to shipping”.
(Thanks for the news tip, Vidyata A.A.!)
Nendoroid Konjiki no Yami (Golden Darkness)
Meanwhile, it looks like Nendoroid Konjiki no Yami (Golden Darkness) from the manga series To Love-Ru Darkness will be the first Nendoroid to be released in 2012. Yep, she has already received her exact release date (January 12th), as GSC has just posted the release dates for some of their products. FYI, Golden Darkness is originally scheduled for the last month of 2011, but she was pushed to January 2012 for some reason.
Well, this news might not be entirely new, since most of you pre-orderers have received emails from GSC a few days ago. Yep, it has been around for a while, but I forgot to post it here for some reason. XD
Anyway, the next batch of Cheerful JAPAN‘s Nendoroid line from Vocaloid has received an official release date. Yep, Nendoroid Rin and Len: Cheerful version is going to start shipping from December 27th. A little late for Christmas party, but hopefully they would arrive just in time for the New Year celebration. ^^
It seems that the production samples for the Cheerful JAPAN version of the Kagamine Twins’ Nendoroid have arrived in GSC’s office. Yep, the pic you see above are boxes of Nendoroid Kagamine Rin and Len (Cheerful version) which are going to be released by this month (December). I guess their release dates should be around the corner. ^^
Well, what do you think about the box design?, Nendonesian?
As usual, GSC also setup a booth at 2011 MikuPa 39’s Live in Sapporo, which is supposedly to open today starting 17:00. Various Vocaloid-related goodies are put on sale there, alongside some upcoming Vocaloid figures that are not released yet, including Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Append version, Nendoroid MEIKO, and Nendoroid Rin and Len: Cheerful version.

As usual, you might want to pay a visit to GSC’s official page for them, or go directly to their online shop to secure your pre-order. Hopefully the woes won’t continue this time. ^^;
