Anyway, GSC has dropped the bomb announced their exclusive products for Summer WonFes 2013. The first one is the lovely Nendoroid Nyaruko: Maid version from Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W which is currently on air in Japan.

“Earth’s entertainment is the best in the universe!”

From the second season of the anime sure to bring your SAN points down, ‘Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W’ comes a figure of Nyaruko herself dressed in an adorable maid outfit! She has her hair tied up in little balls together with cute twin tails, altogether creating an adorable appearance!

Nyaruko comes with three different expressions including a winking expression, an excited expression as well as a smiling expression. She also comes with a variety of optional parts including a ‘Nightgaunt Drink’ on a tray, a ‘Kurogane no Striver’ Blu-ray boxset, heart effect parts to let Nyaruko show her never-ending love and even a Nendoroid sized version of the mysterious Manta-kun! The crawling chaos is ready to serve all the fans!

For us who cannot attend the event, no worries there, because she will also be available for pre-order at Good Smile Online Shop starting from July 28. The Nendoroid will cost 3500 Yen and scheduled for November release.

Orange Colored Nendoroid More Stands Pop Up for WonFes

Nendoroid More: Clip Stand (Orange)

Nendoroid More stands have been released just a few weeks ago, and now GSC are adding a new color option to the mix: ORANGE.

More fun ways to display your Nendoroids!
These new clip stands bring Nendoroid fans a brand new way of displaying their favorite characters! The clip can be easily attached to the frame of your cabinet or the edge of your laptop, allowing you to display your Nendoroids in places you never even considered using before!

The arm attached to the clip is articulated, allowing you to move it in any direction so that you can place the Nendoroids exactly where you want them! Each stand comes with joints for both Nendoroids and Nendoroid Petites, so you can display any of your favorite characters from either series!

This product was developed by this year’s new employees at Good Smile Company. They have also been running a blog testing the development up until this point, which can be found here: http://ameblo.jp/blog-shinsotsu2012/

Both of these Nendoroid More stands will be priced at 500 Yen each and there will be only 500 pcs available at GSC’s Winter WonFes 2013 booth.

Nendoroid More: Suction Stand (Orange)

More fun ways to display your Nendoroids!
These new clip stands bring Nendoroid fans a brand new way of displaying their favorite characters! Simply stick the suction cup onto a window or wall, and you can display your Nendoroids in places you never even considered using before!

A little note regarding the Nendoroid More is also written in the page. It basically reminds us that the Nendoroid More series is only designed to work with Nendoroids (or Nendoroid Petites) that have a tabbed stand that connects to a hole in the back of the figure, thus it will not support Nendoroids that make use of other stand types.

Nendoroid Snow Miku: Strawberry White Kimono version is Announced Officially

Nendoroid Snow Miku: Strawberry White Kimono version

Yep, Nendoroid Snow Miku: Strawberry White Kimono version finally gets a proper official announcement by GSC – although the official pics are not new for us.

Snow Miku is visiting again this Winter, this time in a white kimono!
Designs for the 2013 Snow Miku were submitted by fans to the piapro website and then a winner was chosen by viewers during a NicoNico Live Broadcast. The winning entry was an illustration of Snow Miku with a slightly more mature air, wearing a beautiful white kimono – which has now been transformed into a Nendoroid!

Her cotton veil can be removed, and she comes with two different hair styles to choose from when it is removed – you can display her with either her trademark twintails, or instead with her hair tied up. Sitting parts are also included for a more relaxed pose, and she also comes a number of items for a snowy day, including an umbrella, a toothpick and a snow bunny.

The snow lady is priced at 4000 Yen and scheduled for February (available at WHL4U 17 booth at WonFes and several other venues) and June for pre-order from Good Smile Online Shop.

Details regarding the availability can be read in the official product page.

Well, are you going to get this cute and lovely lady, Nendonesian? ^^

Nendoroid Hachune Miku is Delayed to January 2013 Due to Some Defects

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Hachune Face version

Why does this news seems like déjà vu, hmm? XD

In any case, it seems that a factory defect has been discovered during the inspection of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Hachune Face version prior to its shipment. This Nendoroid, which was available through web pre-order of Summer Wonder Festival 2012 is initially scheduled for December 25th, but it seems that Mr.Santa GSC has decided to delay your Chrismast present the Nendoroid release to January 21st next year.

It appears that the defective parts are the twintails and their joints – although there are no specific details about what the defects really are. In any case, here are the apology email sent by GSC earlier today:

Thank you very much for your support of Good Smile Company products.

A factory defect has been discovered in the “WONDERFUL HOBBY LIFE FOR YOU!! 16” web shop preorder item “Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Hachune Face Ver.” which was announced to begin shipping on Tue, Dec. 25. As such, shipment for this item has been delayed to Mon, Jan. 21, 2013. As there is possibility that some of the products within this shipment may have defective parts, all items will be shipped together with the replacement parts “Left & Right Twin Tail Parts” as well as “Twin Tail Joints x 2”.

We’d like to express our most sincere apologies, to all of our customers who were looking forward to the release of this item.

Yep, the replacement parts for the defective parts will be shipped along with the Nendoroid. You can also cancel your order and GSC will refund you fully, if you want.

Well, I hope this problem will not be repeated when they start taking pre-orders for Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013. XD

(Thanks for the tip, @NintendoTweet)
