Nendoroid Petite x Mini 4WD: Mikoto Misaka drives Thunder Shot Special

I missed this one last week, but anyway, this should be a good news for any Misaka (and Tamiya) fans. Yep, Nendoroid Petite x Mini 4WD: Mikoto Misaka drives Thunder Shot Special has been available for pre-order since February 22.

A certain Misaka’s four-wheel-drive car!
Tamiya’s Mini 4WD model car series has just celebrated its 30th anniversary and is now working in collaboration with the Nendoroid Petite series to create a joint product that will be produced by Dengeki Hobby Magazine! The third character to join the series is Mikoto Misaka from ‘Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S’!

Using specially developed parts, the Nendoroid Petite figures can easily jump into the Mini 4WD models and drive around! Each car is specially designed to suit the image and colors of the character that the car is designed for, and the figure mount is a cleverly designed battery holder! A set of stickers is also included with the Mini 4WD to add even more flair to their ride!

As you may have known, this is one of the products from the joint collaboration between GSC and Tamiya that was announced last year.

Nendoroid Petite x Mini 4WD: Mikoto Misaka drives Thunder Shot Special will be priced at 2100 Yen and scheduled for June release.

This Petite will be available at the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP and orders can be placed between the February 22 from 12:00 until the March 21 at 21:00.

Yep, there are triple pre-orders of Nendoroid and Petites from various TYPE-MOON series that went available earlier today.

The first one is a surprising announcement of Nendoroid Aozaki Aoko from TYPE-MOON’s latest release titled Mahou Tsukai no Yoru. Actually, we have seen her previously, displayed as a prototype in TYPE-MOON Fes a few months ago.

A Nendoroid of the newest witch!
From famous game developer TYPE-MOON’s latest work, ‘Mahoutsukai no Yoru’ comes a Nendoroid of the game’s main character and heroine, Aoko Aozaki!

She comes with three expressions including a shouting face to display her giving orders as the head of the student council, an adorable smiling face and an embarrassed chibi face! She also comes with a special pedestal, magic effect parts and a special arm to display her using her magic, allowing her to live up to her ‘Magical Cannon’ nickname. Enjoy the company of the apprentice witch whenever you like, in the pose of your choice!
