Nendoroid Petite Falcom Heroine Set

A robot defense for new figures!!

001

Later on Oda-P told me that it wasn’t just any robot, it was a Gafran!
Gundam is so hard to learn… ;_;

But what I really care about is what is in the box beneath it!
What could it be? Who will be playing with today!?

002

Nendoroid Petite Falcom Heroine Set!

A collaboration between Falcom, Good Smile Company, Dengeki Playstation and Dengeki Online! A lovely Nendoroid Petite set of three Falcom heroines – Renne, Estelle Bright and Feena!

It’s Falcom’s 30th anniversary this year
The three heroines in the set were decided on by popular vote from among 125 heroines – ranging from the “Dragon Slayer” series to “The Legend of Heroes ZERO NO KISEKI”

125 different heroines!
Fans of the heroines all put in their votes and these three were decided on! You can find the full details of the results over at Dengeki.com!

003

Number one from the voting was this lovely lady!
Renne, from Trails in the Sky!

She managed to grab an incredible 14619 votes, putting her in first place!
Taking a look at the prototype my very first thoughts were…

         / ̄ ̄ ̄ \
      /   :::\::/\   ”Oda-P…
     /    。<一>:::<ー>。   This is a Nendoroid Petite…
     |    .::。゚~(__人__)~゚     with the quality of a full-size Nendoroid!”
     \、   ゜ ` ⌒´,;/゜
    /  ⌒ヽ゚  '”‘”´(;゚ 。 

I’m serious! Look at those details!

004

A nice dynamic pose wielding her huge scythe!

The long wavy skirt and hair really give it a lovely dynamic feeling! Her shoulder is fully posable, so you can also put the scythe in front of her if you prefer.

005

Moving on to the second most popular!
Estelle, also from Trails in the Sky!

She was about 2000 votes away from first place, coming into second with 12940 votes! She is posed with a lovely smile across her face in a pose that looks ready for anything! Although I’m certain that colorful outfit is going to give the production team some troubles! ^^;

006

Estelle comes with her weapon, a fighting staff!

Each of the characters in this Nendoroid Petite set comes with some optional part that can be attached and removed, giving you the choice to display them in a more battle-styled pose, or without their weapons for a less battle orientated pose.

007

Then we move into third place!
Feena from Ys I!

She placed 800 votes away from the second place position, putting her in third place! Feena has been a long time favorite, so I’m sure lots of fans will be glad to see her as Nendoroid Petite that they can keep by their side!

008

She comes with lovely wings and an angel’s raiment!

Creating an absolutely gorgeous figure over all – such incredible quality for such a small figure!! While she is wearing a very simple dress, it is still absolutely beautiful to look at and suits her figure so nicely! Plus the bare feet that you can just see through the flowing dress are a lovely sight!

002

In commemoration of Falcom’s 30th anniversary!

The GSC & Karaoke no Tetsujin Cafe!

Is Now Open!!
 

021

Yesterday was an opening reception for those in the industry, which also included some announcements!

A quick explanation!

Good Smile Company has long been working with animation, games and manga – all of Japan’s popular sub-culture and is now working with the popular Karaoke no Tetsujin who boasts one of the largest number of songs including anime and Vocaloid tunes for all to enjoy. The two companies are working together to bring us a new cafe called the “Good Smile & Karaoke no Tetsujin Cafe”, which will be opening on the 28th October (Friday) in Tokyo, Akihabara.

That really was quite quick, but it sums it up quite nicely!
You can find it just off Chuuou-dooru – the 5th floor of AKIBA CULTURE ZONE!

024

Loads of figures and scrolls lining the walls!

The clean white look makes the place look nice and big and also looks very pretty! It creates such a nice atmosphere, that even makes it easy for girls to walk in!

022

Flowers sent in for the opening!

This was the reception desk, just left of the main entrance! And on the other side of the reception desk was this…

023

A sales corner!

Loads of interesting goods from the cute to the magnificent were all lined up – lots of stuff I really wanted to get my hands on as well! Both GSC figures and theme goods for the cafe are on sale!

025

Alright, time to head inside!

Because today was just the opening reception, none of the chairs and tables are set out, but the space you see here will all become the main area of the cafe! All the latest GSC figures are displayed in the glass cases scattered throughout the area!

027

All sorts of original work lined up as well!

This cafe is going to work in a same fashion to the Good Smile Cafe in Matsudo, following different themes every few months!
Previously it was a Madoka Magica theme, but from December it will be following a “TYPE-MOON cafe for Carnival Phantasm” theme!

026

Many lovely figures to accompany you!

It’s a treat for figure fans, but it’s also an interesting outing for those who have never had much contact with figures – you get to see so many in one place! I can even see a 1/1 scale Neko-Arc staring at me from the left there!!

030

The lovely notebooks for guests!

The notebooks from the Matsudo Madoka cafe were also on display for fun! These notebooks are for any guests to write or draw anything they want! It’s great fun taking a look at what everyone has left behind in the notebooks!

031

The cafe menu was also up to see!

This is the ‘TYPE-MOON cafe for Carnival Phantasm’ menu!
Oooh! Even more things then there were at Matsudo!
I wanna go and try some of these as well! There is also of course a Madoka menu filled with lovely treats as well!

028

You can take a look at some of the upcoming figures!

Fate/Zero Saber!

The name isn’t final though, it might still change. It’s a 1/8th scale figure but it really is an impressive size for that scale! And so detailed!

029

The same sculptor behind Saber Lily!

She’ll be reviewed on the blog shortly!!

033
Soon to be announced on the GSC site…!

1/8th Scale Mami Tomoe!

I bet lots of you were hoping I had taken the photo at a little lower of an angle…

032

She is also so incredibly detailed!

034

The event officially begins!

The event was run in two different parts – one aimed at the press and another which was a live NicoNico announcement. Lots of people were attending the press event all taking down notes throughout the presentation…

035

From the left:
Tetsujin’s Hino, Brain’s Network’s Takayama and Good Smile’s Aki!

These are all the big names behind the Good Smile x Karaoke no Tetsujin Cafe!
Akiyama was the one who brought the other two together! Yay!

This Winter there are also plans to open a store in Taipei, Taiwan!
There are also plans to open more stores all over the world from next year onwards! This is becoming a huge thing!!

036

Next up, GSC made an announcement of their next big expansions!!

The creation of Ultra Super Pictures!
To put it simply, a brand new animation studio!

A whole bunch of wonderful companies working together on anime production, including Sanjigen, Oath and Trigger on the animation side and Nitroplus and pixiv working on the scenario team! You can see Nitroplus’ Dejitarou on the left and Sanjigen’s Matsumura on the right – they were also here for this wonderful announcement!

037

And the creation of Hightube!
Put simply, this is a new marketing company!

This is a collaboration between Cospa, Bushiroad and Good Smile. Just hearing those three names together gets me exited!
On the left is Cospa’s Matsunaga and in the middle is Bushiroad’s Kidani!

Don’t tell anyone, but I’m actually a huge fan of Kidani’s! :P

038

Thus the announcement and opening reception have come to an end!

This is the champagne tower that was shown on the Nico live as well! It took ages to fill all the glasses causing quite some trouble for the host of the show… ^^;
 
 
We’re trying all sorts of new ventures in hopes to bring you all even more wonderful things in the future!
I hope you’ll be supporting us along the way!

Another thing I must mention – I know that most of you reading this blog are figure fans, and I assure you you don’t need to worry about the figure side of things changing – they’ll be going ahead as always!! The main staff in Matsudo will still be working hard to make the high quality figures that we all know and love!
 
 
Anyways, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again next week!! (・∀・)ノ゛

Trying to get hold of prototype figures has become quite a battle with the design team as of late! :P

We always seem to need them at exactly the same time! But I shall not lose! I’ll just take it when I need it, as that wooser plushie can do nothing to stop me!

002

Today we’ll be taking a look at this figure:

From Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai:
Nendoroid Ayase Aragaki!

She is in the a friend of Kirino’s and is in the same grade at school – plus she also works as a model with her! She is the third Nendoroid in the series following on from Kirino Kousaka and Kuroneko!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

You can just see her school uniform’s collar through her black straight hair!! Plus even as a Nendoroid the curves of her calves are quite a sight to behold!

004

Let’s move onto the optional parts!
Her cellphone and school bag!

This image is made to look like she is playing with her cellphone while on the way to school, but you can remove just the school bag and it looks like she is relaxing at home with her cellphone instead! or even switch expressions for an annoyed “Message Undelivered” pose! :P

005

An upset expression!

Ayase knows Kyousuke is filled with tricks for sexual harassment, and this is exactly the face she would give whenever she suspected him!! She looks like she is ready to kill someone ^^; But even when she is angry she is still so cute!

She also has a bent arm to place on her hips!
This just makes her look even more upset! The arm is actually posable at the sleeve, so you can pose it at all sorts of different angles.

006

An unsure expression and folded arms!

This is of course to recreate all those scenes when Ayase is judging Kirino’s beloved otaku culture. I really like this picture – with the red cheeks, folded arms and the way her body is twisted back a bit – it really looks like she is trying to back away! ^^;

She also comes with the bent leg for poses like this!

007

She really doesn’t look very comfortable!

She is reading the ‘thin book’ from the series – it’s cover has been recreated to look just like the one from the anime! Although I’m afraid the contents couldn’t be redone. :P She also comes with arms to hold the book!

008

Yandere Ayase-tan!

However, the handcuffs are included!

Nendoroid Menma

H-Hey!!

Where do you think you’re taking that figure?!

001

     / ̄ ̄\
   / .ー  ー \ ← Shuu-chan from the Planning Team
   |  (●)  (●) |  
   |   (__人__)|   ”There is somewhere I just have to take her…
   |   `i  i´  |     She won’t be back for the rest of the day.”
   |   . `⌒   }      
   ヽ       } 
    ヽ     ノ 
   /      ヽ 

Wait! Before you take her, PLEASE let me take some photos!

Prototype figures are always going off to publishers, or heading off to China! It’s so hard to find the time to get photos in! But I’ll do my best in what little time I have! :P

002

From ‘Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai':
Nendoroid Menma!

From the super popular anime series that aired earlier this year, “Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai” comes this lovely Nendoroid of the mascot character of the “Super Heiwa Busters” – the lovely Menma wearing her simple, white one piece!

So many of the GSC staff were crying over this series! :P
It was so popular with the WEB team that I remember one Thursday someone said, “We need to get this evening’s meeting over quickly! Ano Hana is on tonight!”! ^^

003

This is how she looks from the back!

Those of you who have seen the anime will know that Menma is almost always bare foot! There are very few Nendoroids with bare feet, so it gives her a lovely original feeling!

At first look her one piece might look a little simple, but if you look close there is very careful gradient paint work done for shadowed areas, and it actually has very fine little frills to it as well!

004

Let’s move onto the optional parts!
There are lots of parts that help you recreate some great scenes from the anime!

First up is outstretched arms!

This is to recreate the famous key visual from Chichibu Bridge!
This makes me remember Menma running around all playfully on the bridge!!

005

A flower, hands to hold it and a bent leg!

Okay… so does everyone know which scene this is…?
It’s from the opening song just before the title appears, Menma holds up a flower! It’s such a short scene and yet it leaves such a strong impression!

There is a bent leg for both left and right sides – and the big toe is actually visible on them… plus it’s slightly different on either one! :P

006

A smiling face, her diary and hands to hold it!

An expression with an innocent little smile and closed eyes – such an adorable expression!! It will be used to recreate a famous scene a little later on, so remember it!

Plus the diary from episode 10 is also included!
It’s so tiny, and yet you can still even make out Menma’s handwriting inside! Yay!

007

A determined face and steamed bread!

This kind of shows off Menma’s childish side quite nicely! Such a cute expression that suits her so nicely! She also comes with some of the steamed bread she made in the series, along with hands to carry it! If you combine it with the Nendoroid playset (Japanese), you can kind of recreate Jin-tan’s room as well!

008

Flowers with stands and hands behind her back!

These allow you to recreate the scene from the ending theme!
The flower parts are connected with a ball joint so you can easily change the angle they are displayed at. The base for the final version is also planned to be a flowery one like you see here!

You can recreate the famous key visuals, the OP and ED as well as some of the wonderful scenes from the series itself! Great job, Shuu-chan!

009

Bonus Scene!

Let’s try some Menma cosplay!

001

It seems the area behind my desk is turning into a petting zoo! Whenever someone passes behind my desk, they often change the pose, or add something extra to the frog’s pose! It’s quite fun looking forward to how he will look next time I look behind me. :P

But more importantly! That’s a prototype figure’s box!!

I know many have been waiting for more Nendoroids from this series – sorry for the wait! It certainly has taken a bit longer than expected, but she is finally here!

002

The 4th Nendoroid from Strike Witches:
Nendoroid Charlotte E. Yeager!

From the popular anime series ‘Strike Witches’ comes a Nendoroid of Charlotte E. Yeager, known more commonly by her nickname, Glamorous F. Shirley!

          ____
/ \  /\  キリッ
.     / (ー)  (ー)\    ”The biggest bust on the Strike Witches

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

Yep, you can definitely see she has the biggest bust on the team when you line them up together! Important things like that are never forgotten!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

You can see her lower half is looking lovely in typical Strike Witches fashion as well! They look like a bluish grey color!! The hip parts are of course posable, allowing for some lovely dynamic Strike Witch poses as well!

004

Let’s move onto the optional parts!
A bright smile and bent left arm!

Some bright smiling parts have been included with all the Strike Witches figures in the past, so of course Shirley will come with one as well! It’s so cute to see her with such a beaming smile! Combined with the bent left arm it really creates a lovely, happy looking pose – ideal for Shirley’s character!

005

A combat expression, an M1918 and a thumbs up!

Shirley’s weapon of choice is the M1918, which is included with lovely details! She also of course comes with a hand to hold the weapon!

006

She also comes with her Striker Unit!

Just like before, the propellers even spin around! Having these parts included means you can make all sorts of poses in midair, including battle scenes!

Plus you can’t forget the bunny ears and tail that appear when she uses her magic, along with goggles to allow her to fly at her top speeds!

A separate fringe part is included for the ears, but the goggles are actually attached using magnets – it can connect onto both the normal version and the bunny ear version, so you don’t lose out at all!

007

The tail has a ball joint for some different poses!

You can move it up, down, left, right – whatever suits the scene you are trying to pose best! It also makes sure that it won’t get in the way of the Striker Unit or other parts!

008

So big!!

Miku Hatsune: HSP ver.

Thanks to everyone who watched last week’s broadcast!

We tried screening in high quality this time around, but experienced some volume troubles – sorry for those who struggled to hear the show!

After the broadcast, I asked to borrow one of the prototypes!

It’s time for a much needed prototype figure review!

From Max Factory:
Miku Hatsune: HSP Ver.!


A figure of the popular version of Miku that is used in Hana Soumen-P’s Miku videos, illustrated by Hiro Kanzaki!

First look at the photo above… then compare!

003

This is Kanzaki’s original illustration!

As expected of Max Factory’s wonderful quality! The figure looks almost identical to the illustration!! The illustration has a loli feeling to it that has been converted into figure form wonderfully! I can’t wait to take more photos! (`・ω・´)ゞ

This version of the illustration was drawn specially for the figure!! Yay!

004

This is how she looks from the back!!

The balance between her body and her head really really adorable, and the way the hair bends inward at the end just makes it even cuter!
006

She is so C-U-T-E!!

Well of course she is! It’s Kanzaki’s Miku-san!!

Aaah!! I wish she was real so I could touch those squishy looking cheeks! Even the transparent looking eyes have been perfectly recreated on the figure version!

007

Look at that exquisite hair color!

Max Factory obviously worked on the hair color was obviously worked on until it was absolutely perfect! I just can’t explain how much I love the airy look and lovely coloring on the hair! Plus that lovely transparent feeling! It’s all so beautiful!!

008

The fluttering skirt also shouldn’t be overlooked!

It’s not really an overly active pose, but just like the illustration, the smallest areas like the fluttering of the skirt still have a lovely dynamic feeling to them!! Small things like this are really what makes the figure come together in the end! The subtle little pattern on her boots are also a lovely little bonus to notice!

009

A close-up on the keyboard!

The texture even changes between the buttons and the keyboard! Such fine detail!! I must say that her hand also looks so soft and touchable here… (*゚∀゚)=3

005

The keyboard can be removed!

Though that alone seemed kind of lonely, so I gave her some leeks to hold! :P The leeks come with figma Miku, and are not included with this figure. I needed double-sided tape to keep them in place!

010

That wonderful S-shaped body!!

This has to be my best angle to look at her from! This picture has all my heart and soul poured into it, so I hope you like it as much as I do! :P!

A strange green creature…?

The strange green creature that sometimes appeared in Oreimo as well is also included! I’ve heard that this creature is in fact Kanzaki-san himself!!? This time it seems he is acting as the sound source for the keyboard this time around! :P
