Nendoroid Shinguji Sakura and Koubu set from Sakura Taisen (Sakura Wars), finally went for pre-order yesterday morning.
After being shown in fully-colored fashion on the latest WonFes, it is only natural that Nendoroid Shinguji Sakura and Koubu set gets a preview treatment by Mikatan.
For you who are unfamiliar with this character, well, both of them came from a (classic) game series titled Sakura Taisen (a.k.a Sakura Wars), which was firstly released on 1996. Due to its success, the series spawned and branched into other platforms and media, including OVA, animated TV series, manga, as well as mobile games.
Nendoroid Shinguji Sakura will bring along two expressions, as well as her sword and some optional body parts. Perhaps, the most interesting part of the set is the inclusion of Nendoroid Koubu Sakura. Aside from having several Nendoroid joints inside its body, this unit is also mountable! You can do so by opening the Koubu’s top hatch and put Nendoroid inside – although you have to remove the lower body of the rider Nendoroid. XD
This Nendoroid set will be available for pre-order shortly, but in the meantime, you can take a peek at some nice pics over Mikatan’s blog. ^^

Well, what do we have here? Some prototypes and design of upcoming Nendoroid are being shown today at the Comiket 81. First, we got Nendoroid
Takakura Himari Princess of the Crystal from the famous anime series Mawaru Penguindrum – I have been expecting it for a while XD I am glad that GSC choose this over Takakura Himari on her normal outfit. ^^ *adding her into my watchlist*
UPDATE: The tweet embeds have been fixed.
A surprising announcement was made earlier: Sakura Taisen‘s (a.k.a Sakura Wars) character(s) will be made into Nendoroid, in order to celebrate its 15th anniversary. Yep, we will be able to see Shinguji Sakura (or perhaps Erika Fontaine?) in Nendoroid size soon! Whoa!!! XD
