Nendoroid Info in Latest Hobby Magazine Scans (May 2012)

The magazine scan

The magazine scan

After Nendoroid Annelotte (Queen’s Blade Rebellion) went for pre-order last month, the usual “how will the 2P version look like?” thought crossed on my mind.

Thankfully, I don’t have to wait long, as Nendoroid Annelotte: Dark Knight version made her debut in this month’s Dengeki Hobby Magazine. Interestingly, she does not bear the 2P version remarks that have been the case with the previous alternative versions of Nendoroid from Queen’s Blade. XD

*ahem* I have to say that she looks really gorgeous with those red eyes, elven’s ears, and a glittering golden equipments. I’m totally sold, FREEing, good job! ^^

Anyway, it seems that she will be available as a limited and exclusive product, as usual, with a price of 3500 Yen. The evil-looking lady will be released sometimes this year.

Meanwhile, Phat Company‘s Nendoroid Gertrud Barkhorn from Strike Witches series gets another highlight in the magazine scan. This time, she brings along her Striker unit and shares a few new poses with us.

(Un)surprisingly, she is still uncolored, eventhough it is already more than a year since the first time we saw her. At least she got a release schedule, albeit a little vague: Autumn 2012. XD

Note: Oh, and while we’re at it, how are our Disgaea duo (Flonne and Etna) doing there, Phat-san? Hopefully you don’t plan to cancel abandon forget them, because some of us have been patiently waiting since you showed them to us last year. XD

Well then, what do you think about it, Nendonesian? ^^

The PSP game Strike Witches: Shirogane no Tsubasa is scheduled for June 28 release – that means it is due in around two months from now. Thus, it is only natural that Nendoroid Lynette Bishop: Swimsuit version received a lot of promotional pics, as she is included as a bonus in the limited edition package. XD

Well then, see the photos after the break. XD

UPDATE: New pics have been added.

*ahem* Yes, I know that the last time I do the Random Gallery post was … umm … almost a year ago. Nevertheless, I do not think I will post this monthly, but I will try to post one when I come across some interesting Nendoroid photos. ^^

Anyway, this time’s gallery consists of mostly the newly released Nendoroid, such as Honma Meiko (Menma), Charlotte E.Yeager (Shirley), and Desert Army-san. Enjoy! ^^

Remember Nendoroid Lynette Bishop: Swimsuit version that was seen on the WonFes? Well, it turned out that she will be bundled with upcoming Strike Witches: Shirogane no Tsubasa for PSP.

The PSP game itself is not entirely new, as it is a port of the Xbox 360 game titled Strike Witches: Hakugin no Tsubasa (released in mid-2010), which has a limited edition bonus in the form of Nendoroid Miyafuji Yoshika: Swimsuit version. The game might have a new features though, but I did not dig further info about it. XD

In any case, Lynette will bring along two new expressions, the compulsory Striker Unit and some optional body parts and accessories. It seems that there will also be a “secret item” included, as mentioned by the Google Translate’s site translation – can someone enlighten me about this? XD

The limited edition of the PSP game Strike Witches: Shirogane no Tsubasa is priced at 10,479 Yen and scheduled for June 28th.

Nendoroid Charlotte E Yeager and Kobayashi Kamui are Spotted; Minami Sisters are Missing

Assume that WonFes is an exhibition event for us, figure collectors (read: consumers), then consider this “Hobby Product Maker Summer 2011” an event for the figure manufacturers. The products being displayed here are generally similar to what we have seen at the WonFes, and Nendoroid Charlotte E Yeager is among those WonFes-bound products as well. ^^

Nendoroid Kobayashi Kamui

Nendoroid Kobayashi Kamui also made another appearance here. The famous Japanese F1 racer is spotted alongside two helmets, which appears to be the one that has been scaled down to Nendoroid-size for Kamui-san. ^^

Nendoroid Minami Haruka and Kana

Meanwhile, Nendoroid Minami Haruka and Kana from Minami-ke are missing in this exhibition, after being spotted as prototype at the latest WonFes. Gift has commented on the absence of Chiaki’s elder sisters, saying that both Nendoroid are currently getting painting finalization. Wha-!? So are we going to see them as a full-colored Nendoroid soon? ^^
