He’s finally here!


001

So sorry that it took so long… there have been a load of adjustments that kept delaying him, but he is finally due for release!

The commemorative 100th Nendoroid:

Nendoroid Mickey Mouse!
 

       / ̄ ̄ ̄\
     / ─    ─  \
    /  <○>  <○>  \.   ”Another huge box…”
    |   (__人__) し | 
    \    ` ⌒´    / 
    /  し          \

The Nendoroid boxes are slowly getting bigger and bigger… I guess it’s really just a sign that they are getting more and more parts to play with!

So let’s take a look at Mickey!

002

This is how the packaging looks!

As you can see there are a ton of fun looking parts… although you might not even be able to tell what some of them are at the moment. :P


011

Nendoroid Mickey-san!

I really never expected to see the legendary Mickey-san get his very own Nendoroid! I’m so glad that Disney Japan allowed us to make him! (;゚Д゚)

He looks absolutely adorable as a Nendoroid! :)

003

This is how he looks from the back!

The stand is one of the stands that presses into the back.

His little tail is also 360 degree posable!


004

Mickey found some smoked cheese!

(The smoked cheese isn’t included)

Mickey isn’t quite fully posable, but he is still very posable! His shoulders, thighs and even the tip of his feet are fitted with joints.

You can pose him from all sorts of poses from the show!  (・∀・)ノ

005

Let’s move onto the optional parts!

First up is his director’s chair!

Even the chair is quite cute… ^^;
The armrests look like Mickey’s hands and the backrest features a ‘Mickey’ logo. It’s such a simple design but it looks great and suits Mickey nicely.


006

He also needs his camera!
The camera also features a design that suits Mickey really well – the film on the top looks like his ears… it’s so perfect!


007

Next up is his megaphone!

All these little parts bring out Mickey’s world for you to enjoy!
Obviously he also comes with hands to hold the megaphone.

Don’t you think Mickey looks adorable from the side-view? I really like this angle!


009

Last but not least – his clapperboard!

Once again it is styled to fir into Mickey’s world perfectly!
 

012

The full set of filming tools!

These were actually drawn by Disney Japan especially for the Nendoroid!!

It’s ‘Scene 100′ to coincide with the fact that this is the 100th Nendoroid!! ・゚・(ノД`)・゚・。

Great idea, Disney Japan!


008

He decided to have a chat with Teddy!

Mickey is a little different from normal Nendoroids – he doesn’t come with any extra expressions…

But instead he does have replaceable eyes!

When you want to change the eyes you just pull of the skin-colored part on his face – you don’t need to remove the head at all which makes it really easy! If you’re a fan of Mickey then you’ll have great fun posing him in some of your favorite scenes!

Nendoroid No. 100:

Nendoroid Mickey Mouse!

I hope to see you all again tomorrow! (・∀・)ノ゛
 
 
 
 
 

Bonus!

There are a couple of Good Smile staff members who absolutely love Mickey…

We managed to get a signature from Mickey himself!

Unbelievable!!

The next few days are full of Nendoroid releases!

001

Nendoroid Kurisu Makise
Nendoroid Ui Hirasawa
Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet
And finally, the Nendo we’ll take a look at today -

Nendoroid Miku Hatsune: Absolute HMO Edition!

A fully posable Nendoroid!

She’ll be in stores on the 31st January!


002

This is how the packaging looks!

       / ̄ ̄ ̄\
     / ─    ─  \
    /  [○]   [○]    \.   ”T-That’s a lot of parts!”
    |   (__人__) し |  
    \    |r┬-|    / 
    /  し  `ー’´     \

Not only is she fully posable, she also comes with a ton of extras!

For those of you who store the Nendoroid away in the blister pack after playing around with it can use this image as a reference as to where all the pieces go.  Trying to figure out where all the little pieces go could take ages. ^^;



003

HMO Miku!

YMO (Yellow Magic Orchestra) released a CD called “HMO (Hatsune Miku Orchestra)”, which featured this version of Miku illustrated by manga artist Kuu as the illustration on the jacket cover – the jacket cover was so popular that it is now getting it’s very own Nendoroid rendition!

Her over-sized sleeves suit look great as a Nendoroid!
You can’t call that baggy look anything but cute!!


004

This is how she looks from the back!

Even her hair is fully posable!

Both the base of the twintails and extra parts along the hair have joints, so you can pose it in many weird and wonderful ways!

The stand she uses is the same that the fully posable Saber used – it connects to her back allowing lots of poses but also keeping her nice and stable.


005

Let’s take a quick look at all the extra parts… there are so many…!

First up – her headphones and two leeks!

Her headphones have a ton of wires coming out of them just like in the original illustration. The leeks can be held in her hands even though you can’t even see her hands because of her giant sleeves :P

        ___
       /     \

 ̄ \__、(“二) ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄l二二l二二  _|_|__|_

You very well might have seen this pose before, because…

111

It’s the pose from the HMO Jacket!

You can recreate the pose from the jacket cover nicely!

But there’s just one thing missing…


006

Her sunglasses! They’re included as well!

You need to take off her fringe parts to put them on, but after that they attach easily!

007

A winking face and an electric drum set!

The entire drum set is included with the figure! You can pose her playing the drums with her leek drumsticks!

But there are still even more extras for HMO fans!


010

Two keyboards and hands!

 ̄ \__、(“二)。゚ /。・イハ 、\、l二二l二二  _|_|__|_

I was just as surprised when I first saw it. ^^;

Originally when the product was announced it only came with a single back keyboard… but it turns out you’ll get a gray keyboard as well! :P

Apparently this is the keyboard that YMO uses, while the black keyboard is the one seen in the HMO PV. Apparently the gray keyboard was added because YMO asked for it specifically!


008

A ( |ω| ) face and a megaphone!

Even more extras that HMO fans will love! I’m personally really glad they included the elusive megaphone!

There are also extra parts to cover up the holes where her headset would normally be – so you can display her without it without the figure looking too strange. Yay!


009

And finally… her recorder!

Although in the HMO PV the recorder was actually played by Len.

Nendoroid Rin and Len came with blank faces… and this figure comes with extra face stickers to recreate HMO Rin and Len! 

The stickers are located on the inside of the box, so make sure to find them!

013

Plus as a bonus you’ll also get a ticket that let’s you watch a special movie!

Just put the serial number into the website and enjoy the movie… who knows what you’ll get the privilege of watching! :O


011

The box really suits her colors! 

Nendoroid Number 129!

002

Yay! He gave it to me! Which means tday we’ll be looking at…

The 6th Nendoroid in from the Touhou series:

Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet!

Flandre is from the popular ‘Touhou Project’ series of games made by the doujin circle Shanghai Alice. If you saw my blog featuring Remilia then you’ll know that this is in fact Remilia’s little sister!

Flandre is being sent out to stores tomorrow!!

I’ve been waiting for this one for ages!


003

This is how she looks from the back!

          ____
     /::::::─三三─\
    /:::::::: ( ○)三(○)\   “W-wow! Her wings!!”
  |:::::::::::(__人__):::| 
     \:::::::::   |r┬-|   ,/
    ノ::::::::::::  `ー’´   \

Flandre wouldn’t be the same without her rainbow wings!

The master figure used clear plastic to make the wings look absolutely beautiful… I was worried they wouldn’t look as nice on the final product but they have come out magnificently!

Just be very careful when handling them…  if you’re too rough they might break!

004
She also comes with some fun extra parts!

‘Lævateinn’ with a hand to hold it!

This is Flan-chan’s weapon ‘Lævateinn’ – you just push it into her hand to make her hold it. The sleeves on her outfit can also be rotated around for even more poses!


005

She also comes with a grinning face!

This is how Flandre should took! It’s the perfect expression for her personality!

She also comes with the upward turned hand – she always gives that evil grin and puts her hand up like that when she is in a destructive mood! ^^;

She also comes with two different shoulder parts – one to allow the arms to come out on the side and the other makes them go forward -the bent arm in this image uses the shoulder that makes the arms come out forward.


006

Her hat can be removed!

How does she look without the hat? I think that blond hair looks adorable! As you can see, she actually comes with two upward bend hands!


007

She also comes with an innocent smile!

The contrast between this face and her grinning face is quite scary… you can have an innocent and playful Flandre like this, or a destructive Flandre like the one above!


008

Displayed with Sakuya, her maid!

I’m sure she will also look great displayed with her sister Remilia as well. She also looks great in the Western Playset – it’s the perfect rendition of the Scarlet Devil Mansion! I’m sure a lot of you noticed already, but I used it in all the photos above – it will be on sale in March!


009
The 6th Nendoroid in the Touhou series…

Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet!

[Bonus!]

A new master figure from Phat! Company arrived!

010

Another character from the Touhou Project…

A scale figure of Chen , the shikigami!

It was originally a garage kit made by sculptor YOSHI that was based on an illustration by the group ‘QP flapper’!

Plus there are also figures of Yukari Yakumo and Ran Yakumo on their way!!

Take a look here for more pictures and info:

Oooh! She’s finally here!

Could you please leave her on my desk?

001

What did you do to Giita!?

It looks like there is some mold growing on it… ^^;
 
 
But anyway, today we’ll be playing with this cutie!

002

Nendoroid Ui Hirasawa!

Ui is the reliable younger sister of Yui from the anime ‘K-ON!’ – she has great grades at school and always helps out with all the housework!

She is wearing her lovely middle-school uniform!!
She looks so adorable!!

003

This is how she looks from behind!

Her ponytail is fitted with a Nendoroid joint which lets it move around quite nicely! The ribbon in her hair can also be removed.

She uses the same kind of stand that all the previous K-ON! Nendoroids have used, which lets her stand directly on the floor instead of on the stand itself.

004

A bright smile as if she has no worries in the world!

Just looking at it gives me the energy to get through the hardest of days!!

She also comes with bent arms!

The hands can be removed from the arms, so you can put these hands on the straight arms too if you prefer them.

005

She comes with this lovely Dizzy Face!

This face can be used for so many things!You can obviously also give it to some other Nendoroids to try on!

006

Ui also comes with…

Her Sakuragaoka high school uniform!

As well as her school bag to carry with her! It all looks absolutely gorgeous!

007

Anyone who has the Yui Nendoroid as well…

Can recreate the scene where Ui disguised herself as Yui in season one!

The reason this picture looks a little weird is of course because this is actually Ui just with Yui’s hair! The blue ribbon for the upperclassman is also included!

008

“Ui…. I want an ice lolly!”
 
You can even act out this scene!! (*゚∀゚)=3

The Sakuragaoka uniform makes displaying the characters together look really nice!

009

Let’s try the dizzy face on another Nendoroid!

I’m fairly confident that if you like these kind of overexaggerated faces then this is one that will look great on any Nendoroid! The expression actually resembles the Hachune expression on the snowman a little. ^^;

010

Nendoroid number 135!

12 days till the Wonder Festival!

001

Yesterday we had a look at the WonFes product ‘Nendoroid Kurisu Makise: White Coat Ver.’!

That would be the one of the right of this photo.

Today we’ll take a look at the one on the left:

Nendoroid Kurisu Makise!

This one is not a WonFes product – it’ll be available at all our partner shops for normal sales! We’re sending her out on the 26th, so she should reach the stores by the 27th!


001

This is how the packaging looks!

The overall feeling is very similar to the White Coat Ver. – it has a very standard Nendoroid set-up. Obviously Nendos like this with no huge extras cost less! Don’t forget that!

002

Kurisu in her casual clothes!

Kurisu comes from the science fiction visual novel that was recently recently released on PC, “Steins;Gate”, and also goes by lots of pet names, such as “Assistant” and “Christina”. She is a very lovable tsundere heroine, and now she is available as a Nendoroid!

When we first announced this Nendoroid we got a lot of people asking.

        ノ L____
       ⌒ \ / \
      /  (○) (○) \     “What?! Why isn’t she wearing her White Coat!?”

    `ー、_ノ       ∑ l、E ノ <
               レY^V^ヽl

The White Coast version was due to be a WonFes product!!

For more information on that version you can check the blog I wrote before this one, or the official page below:
http://www.goodsmile.info/product/en/3063/


003

This is how she looks from the back!

These clothes are actually a custom altered version of Kurisu’s high school uniform. The stand tucks into the hem of the clothes very nicely!


004

An arm holding documents to recreate the famous CG!

This extra part has Kurisu’s arm holding some documents just like she did in a very important scene from the game!


005

The first expression – an Upset Face!

She also comes with crossed arms… perfect for a pose like this!

As I said yesterday, she is a tsundere character!

This pose and expression is a perfect example of the upset half of a tsundere… which means the other expression must be…?


006

An Embarrassed Face!

She also comes with a bent arms like this to create an even more embarrassing looking pose.

         ____
       /      \
      /  ─    ─ \     ”Hmm… I’m sure I’ve seen this pose before…”

This pose was used on advertising for the game!

If you combine all the parts from this figure with the White Coat Ver. you’ll find you can make a lot of interesting poses!


007

You can also use the expressions of the White Coat Ver.!

You can use one of the cutest faces ever… this ‘ヽ(*゚д゚)ノ’ Face on her!

Plus she also comes with another extra!

Her cellphone!

Along with a hand to hold it! Now she can find the way to go using her cellphone!


008

The hand holding the cellphone can also be exchanged!

Which means you can pass the cellphone onto the white coat Kurisu! It really helps to have both of them if you want to create more of your favorite scenes!


009

Kaito: White Coat Ver!

Kaito is trying some new clothes on! It’s nice to have a character in a white lab coat like this one to put on other characters. The face as well of course!

They are both definitely Nendoroids with a load of fun to be had!


010

Nendoroid number 130!

13 days till the Wonder Festival!


001

Oooh! That means there is less than 2 weeks left!!

We’re slowly buy surely getting ready here in the GSC offices, and today I’ll be reviewing the third of the WonFes products…

Nendoroid Kurisu Makise:

White Coat Ver.!

That’s right!

The Nendoroid on the left is actually the other standard version of Kurisu Makise, while the one on the right is the WonFes limited Kurisi Makise: White Coat Ver.

Today we’ll be playing around with the White Coat Ver.!


002

Let’s get started!

This is how the packaging looks!

She follows the standard Nendoroid pack – she comes with two extra expressions, a number of arms and a couple of other little extras.


003

Kurisu wearing her white coat!

Kurisu comes from the SF adventure game Steins;Gate – in the game she often appeared wearing this white lab coat. This version also comes with different expressions to the normal Nendoroid!

The other Kurisu is wearing her casual clothes!

It creates a nice contrast when they are displayed with each other!!


004

This is how she looks from the back!

The stand is a sitting-type stand – you simply balance her coat to balance her. The inside of the coat has been made so that she can stand very stably.


005

Extra parts – crossed arms!

This is one pose that you just can’t go without when it comes to Kurisu.

She is your typical tsundere character!!

I’ve actually played through the PC version of Steins;Gate! It’s quite a mission to get ALL of the CG unlocked, but I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who hasn’t played it yet. It’ll make you laugh, cry and wish for more!


006

She also comes with a Smiling Face!
Seeing her so happy makes me feel all happy inside as well…

She also comes with bent arms for an adorable pose like this!
 
Obviously you could replace one or the other with a different arm if you wanted to.


007

Some more extra arm parts…

Outstretched Arms!

When you use these parts her hair can get in the way on the right hand side, so there is an extra hair part to avoid the problem.


008

As an ASCII art lover, this expression is perfect for me!!

It’s a ‘ヽ(*゚д゚)ノ’ Face!

Otakana… excellent job in adding this expression in! I love it!

For those of you who aren’t quite sure what the expression is… it’s the face she makes in the game when explaining about the brain’s hippocampus!

009

Snow Miku wants to try it on!

It’s so adorable!!

010

You can also give the expression to the standard version of Kurisu Makise!

I’ll play with her more tomorrow!

But that expression really is just too cute…

Nendoroid Kurisu Makise:

White Coat Ver.!

She will cost just ¥3000!  ヽ(*゚д゚)ノ

16 days to the Wonder Festival!

001

Yesterday I went over the first of the WonFes products, Nendoroid Mato & Yomi Set!

Today I’m going to be looking at the second!

Nendoroid Snow Miku:

Snow Playtime Edition!

         ____

     \:::::::::   |r┬-|   ,/
    ノ::::::::::::  `ー’´   \

S-Sorry… I think we added too many things…

During my trip to China in December I was making sure that she was being made just right!

002

Let’s get started on the review!

This is how the packaging looks!

The pack is filled with extra parts! A Nendo Petite sized snowman, two different expressions, hair parts for a Hachune version, different hand parts, headsets…. and that’s not all!

She even comes with a Miku-shaped ice tray!

You can see the ice tray’s blue outline in the back of the blister pack.

003

A fully posable Snow Miku!

She’s back again for the 62nd Sapporo Snow Festival, to commemorate the giant snow sculpture of Miku at the event!

Some of you might be wondering about that.

SEGA announced it yesterday, but…
A new module featuring Snow Miku is coming to the PSP game ‘Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- 2nd’, as well as the arcade game ‘Hatsune Miku Project DIVA Arcade!

Snow Miku is going to be bouncing and dancing around in the game, so it’s only fair that the Nendoroid can do it as well!! If you’re looking for more info about the module, take a look at SEGA’s site below:

And if you’re looking for more info about the Snow Festival, you can find more information on Crypton’s website:  

There are lots of other awesome looking goods on sale!

[SNOW MIKU for SAPPORO 2011 ]

http://www.crypton.co.jp/mp/pages/special/snowmiku2011/ (Japanese only)

004

This is how she looks from the back!

The silver snowflakes in her hair look just the same as the previous version… still just as beautiful as ever! The hair also uses clear plastic just like before… isn’t it beautiful!?

005

Let’s compare her with the last Snow Miku!

The left is the 2011 Snow Miku, and the right is the 2010 Snow Miku.

This year’s looks a little more grown up, but they’re both adorable!

006

You can put the new parts on the old Snow Miku!

The scarf, earmuffs and gloves all fit her perfectly!

Unfortunately the expressions are not exchangeable due to some changes in the design. (Although I’m fairly sure the expressions will fit on any new Nendoroids)

If you want to put the new expressions on the old Miku, you’ll have to use the new fringe parts as well!

007

Anyway, let’s get back to the new Miku’s review!

She comes with this embarrassed face!

Snow Miku was never based on any illustrations or anything, so all the expressions were designed by Kawapon. They were still being modified at the very last moments of being made… I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

008

The famous ‘Hachune Face!’

Although it’s a different Hachune face to the previous figure!

Of course she also comes with a ice leek to hold!

And using the new posability you can make epic poses like the one above!

009

You can take off all the winter clothes!

The scarf, earmuffs and gloves can all be removed! In place of the earmuffs you can put her black headset on for a more Miku-esque pose!

010

Nendoroid Petite-sized Snowman!

It’s got a Hachune face! And the arms are made of ice leeks! It’s adorable!

And because it’s Nendoroid Petite size…

015

You can switch heads with other Petites!

It uses the normal connector used in Nendo Petites, so you can try it with all sorts of characters!

Bonus Scene!

This is how she looks with the charming CHAN×CO Face!
 
The eye color even matches! It looks great! This face along with the Hachune face… I think I’m going to die from cuteness!!! Aaahh!!

012

Nyaa Face!

This one comes from Nendoroid Shiki Ryougi!

I wanted to try and pose her in a slick Shiki-like pose! It’s a lot of fun trying to think up and pose the fully posable Nendoroids like this!!

013

The first public view of this extra…

The ice-tray!

It is made of a very soft silicone-like material. This obviously came from the idea of making Miku into your very own ice sculptures for the snow festival!

I’ll post the results on the blog at a later stage!
 

 

014

Nendoroid Snow Miku:

Snow Playtime Edition!

She will be available for ¥4000!

I’m sure you’ll have fun with all the winter gear and the snowman as well! (・∀・)
