Nendoroid Miku Hatsune: Support ver.

Miku will be sent out to everyone soon!

001

Nendoroid Miku Hatsune: Support ver.!

She was the first product to be sold as a charity product to raise money to support the relief efforts in Eastern Japan – for each figure sold Good Smile Company donated ¥1000 to the Japan Red Cross Society.

The final amount raised by Miku was ¥74,465,000!

I think that number is a good sign as to how much people care about helping out those in need. Thank you to everyone, and know that your money will be helping out someone in the affected areas!

002

Anyway, let’s move onto the figure review!

This is how the packaging looks!

This version of Miku uses the original Nendoroid Miku Hatsune as a base, but adds on extra expressions parts and other optional parts – a cheering face, a flag and pair of pompons for her to show her support!

003

Cheering pompons!

The inside of the pompons are fitted with a balljoint so they can be posed at all kinds of different angles! This was actually added in by the production team, and it is a most welcome addition!!

004

This is how she looks from the back!

This version of Miku uses the arm type of Nendoroid stand – although she can actually stand on her own using her long twin tails – the stand just allows for an many more poses and more stability.

005

The pompons can be removed easily!

The same bent arm and leg parts included with the original Nendoroid Miku are of course included with this version as well! Plus you can’t have Miku without that lovely singing face!

006

She also comes with the Hachune set!

That includes the facial expression, a different fringe part and of course her leek to wave around! Just looking at that face makes me smile. ^^

007

A support flag shaped like a music note!

Colored the same bright orange as the pompons – it’s really a color that just shines with happy energy! Let’s all work together for tomorrow!

Plus the brand new smiling expression!
A face never seen on any Nendoroids before – you can’t help but smile after seeing her so happy!

008

And inbetween the box and the inner cardboard…
There are postcards and stickers!!

The postcard is filled with illustrations from PIAPRO! The following user’s illustrations were used:

Miyako / Shiki / Harukero / Shinonagasukijira / Hashima / Kuuna / Raki / Puchidebiru / Kuuna / grani / Mae / Setora / pizzadev / Charyo / Enoki / mikoro / koro11 / Himerin /yuka / Yayoi / Yukino Ichinose / 968 / NE*GI / tk8d32 / Sorasara / Shiiro / Yuu / Shirotoami / Bokujyuu / 85 / Mizutakako / Kurenai Suzu / coikekke / Sakura Panda / Yuuki / Nanori / Mamomo / F@N / Sakurausa / Urushizawa /syo-n /naa_co / Akkokko / Ume Cake / Matatabi Dango / siZuki / Sigma / Yanky Pirafu / shari / yuka / Zanryuu Denpa / Younosuke / Yanky Pirafu / Koroi / Hasurino / Sakuramichi / Kitajouinsakura / reo_n2 / Popon /

Thank you to everyone who allowed their illustrations to be included!

009

The stickers are for the back of the flag!

The GSC Mark is there if you want to use it, but otherwise you can write your own personal message. This version was written by Koyamada from the production team – it says ‘We’re all together!’.

She is being sent out on the 30th June!
They are being sent out in the order that they were ordered – so if yours doesn’t arrive don’t stress, it’s probably on it’s way! Also note that international orders will only be a month or so later – but don’t worry, she is coming!!

Another way to show your support is though the PRAY FOR JAPAN project run by KarenT, where you can download songs from the iTunes Store and Hatsune Miku Mobile and proceeds will be used to support relief efforts. If you’re interested check the link below! (Japanese only.)

And finally a quick notice – Mikatan blog is taking a vacation from tomorrow the 29th June until the 4th July, as the GSC team is going on a training course – which means the next blog update will only be on the 5th July (Tues)!

Also during that time GSC will be at the JAPAN EXPO being held in France. Some of the staff will be doing a live broadcast from the event along with DWANGO which can be found here:

A Live Broadcast from the Nico Nico Booth at France’s Japan Expo -Day 1!
http://live.nicovideo.jp/gate/lv54161834

There are some product introductions planned for the broadcast, so do tune in!
 
 
It’s a bit depressing to leave for so long – but that’s all for today!
I’ll see you all next month!! (・∀・)ノ゛

Nendoroid Petite:

Fate/stay Night Extension Set!

We finally move into the second part of this review!

If you came across this one first, be sure to take a look at the first part: Nendoroid Petite: Fate/stay Night Extension Set! (Part 1)

The first part took a look at Saber Alter, Acher, Caster and Lancer – this second part will take an in-depth look at Berserker!

011

BERSERKER!

         ____
      /::::::─三三─\

   |:::::::::::(__人__)::|
     \:::::::::   |r┬-|   /
    ノ::::::::::::  `ー’´ \  

I’m sure most of you know, but Berserker is really huge in the actual series, so it’s great to see the Nendo petite is also bigger than the normal size!

Even though it’s a petite Nendo, he is only just smaller than a normal Nendoroid! xD

He also has a load of joints and is a lot of fun to play around with!

012

This is how he looks from the back!

Even in his deformed Nendoroid form you can still see those huge muscles on his back and arms, which really is what Berserker is all about, isn’t it! 😛

013

He comes with a hand with no sword as well!

There are also joints put into his thumbs which mean he can be posed holding all sorts of things! There were a load of things I wanted to make him hold, but there was one that just had to come first…!

015

Just like the series!! (*゚∀゚)=3

The famous scene where Berserker lifts Rin into the air!

There was also a much older 1/8th scale GSC figure that recreated this scene… it was also an amazing figure…

018

A look from another angle!

  |   . `⌒   }      
   ヽ       } 
    ヽ     ノ 
   /      ヽ 

I’m pretty sure that any Fate fans would want to do things like this! It’s just so much fun!

014

“Get them, Berserker!”

That pose with Ilya pointing out is ideal in this case!

I never mentioned it yesterday, but as you can see the Fate/stay Night Extension Set really is, as the name suggests, a way of extending the original Nendoroid Petite set!

It is designed to be combined with the Nendoroid Petite: Fate/stay night for the full effect! Rin and Ilya were both in the original set, so don’t expect them to come in the Extension Set!

016

Archer vs. Lancer!  ヾ(゚∀゚)ノ゛

There have to be a ton of fans that would want to recreate the initial scene between these two! The best thing is that because they are Nendoroid Petites you don’t need to worry too much about space either – you can have them battling it out on your desk easily!!

017

Their expressions are also exchangeable!

At least, at the moment they are – this might change after the actual production phase of the them, so don’t take my word for it yet. Here you can see Lancer and Archer both trying on Hetare Saber’s face! 😛

The Golden Saw’s are preforming some kind of ritual!

001

They are summoning new figures to play with!

It is in fact the figures we took a look at on the live broadcast the other day!!
These Gold Saws are all actual product versions that the design team put together to make sure everything was alright. She will be coming to stores on the 28th!

002

Anyway, let’s move onto the figure review!

Nendoroid Petite:

Fate/stay Night Extension Set!

Last year in June the Nendoroid Petite: Fate/stay night set was released, and this set is to add on to that collection!

Simply put, the things that stand out the most are…

(゚∀゚) Berserker is HUGE!
(゚∀゚) Some much needed male characters!
(゚∀゚) Optional parts are included!
(゚∀゚) Berserker is really HUGE!

That about sums up the set! 😛

I remember a long time ago back in the old office I asked Oda-P to please release some Nendo Petites of Archer and Lancer – I’m so glad my wish finally come true! Although, it wasn’t my request that brought them – it was all of yours! This is definitely a set of Nendos that lots of people have been requesting!

003

Saber Alter-san!

She may be Nendo Petite size, but the detail on her armor is unbelievable! Even the fine red lines along her armor have carefully been added in!

004

Her mask is removable with a separate fringe part!

Alter-san’s face is even cuter in Nendo Petite size!! you can also pose her wither wielding Excalibur or just holding it by her side like in the photo above.

005

Caster-san!

Caster may be less popular than other characters but she still has very devoted fans, so she had to join the lineup! The detailed sculpting on her one piece even features the slit down the middle – it’s absolutely beautiful!

006

She has a hooded and unhooded version!

When I saw the version of the hood hanging down  knew exactly what it was, it’s nice to be able to see her face as well – although I must say I’m also quite a fan of the mysterious look with the hood on – I’m really not sure which version I would display!

007

Archer!

You can pose him holding Kanshou and Bakuya!!

019

Of course he also comes with his bow!

Just by replacing the hand parts you can have him wield his bow instead! It’s a really nice rendition of him – the expression is perfect for him!

008

Lancer! The blue man!

You can’t have Archer with Lancer! 😀 He is posed in a gallant pose wielding his spear, ‘Gáe Bolg’.

009

Unfortunately he doesn’t come with any optional parts…
But this is how he looks from the back!

I’m sure lots of people are thinking that right now – but I’m fairly certain that the Berserker Nendo requires his very own review, so I’ll give a much longer review of him on Monday – plus there will be some bonus pics!

002

Nendoroid Petite:

Fate/stay Night Expansion Set!

Planned to be up on the GSC site on the 27th June!

However the price is still being confirmed, so it may be delayed a few days – if that’s the case just be patient a little while longer!
 
 
 
Anyways, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again next week! (・∀・)ノ゛
I’ll try to make sure the blog isn’t delayed!

Nendoroid Homura Akemi

001

Who could be in today’s box?!

A few days back I did give a little sneak peak at this figure on twitter, but today will be the full blog review! Today’s figure is already up for pre-orders!!

004

From Puella Magi Madoka Magica:
Nendoroid Homura Akemi!

A Nendoroid of the mysterious transfer student who warns Madoka not to become a Puella Magi!

Homu-homu!! (*゚∀゚)=3
She is the second Nendoroid to join us from the Madoka Magica world!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

Homuhomu has very characteristic long black hair that is split down the middle – and as you can see it’s been put into Nendoroid form perfectly! She is dressed in her Puella Magi outfit which has been carefully sculpted to include all the ribbons and patterns from the original designs – and everything down to the finest detail is there!

002

The famous SHAFT pose!

Yay! Even Nendoroids can do the SHAFT pose now! Normally when you pose Nendos with the neck this far up you end up seeing the joint so it looks a bit strange, but it works great with Homura!

As you can see, the shield on her arm is removable!

006

Alright, lets move onto the optional parts!

First up her her upset face!

It really brings out a feeling of just how serious she is about what she is doing. It’s the perfect expression for recreating the famous battle scenes from the series!

And in her hand is the big bazooka!
Combined with the hands that her hold it, you can recreate the scene where she shoots the bazooka! Yay!

005

But Homura has to have her pistol as well!

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

Kyubey was included with Nendoroid Madoka!

He isn’t included with the Homura Nendoroid, so do keep that in mind – I for one think a scene with the two of them like this is perfect!

007

She also comes with a shy expression!
As well as separate fringe parts with glasses, and braided hair parts!

         / ̄ ̄ ̄ \
      /   :::::\:::/\   ”Thank you so much for including these parts!
     /    。<一>:::<ー>。   I’m so glad I can make this version of her too!”
     |    .:::。゚~(__人__)~゚j

    /  ⌒ヽ゚  '”‘”´(;゚ 。  
   / ,_ \ \/\ \
    と___)_ヽ_つ_;_ヾ_つ.;.

And in her hands she holds a grenade!

Homura is well known for her weapons, and so the Nendoroid comes with a total of three different weapons for her to use!!

008

This is how she looks without the glasses!

With or without braids, with or without glasses and a choice of three different expressions – there really are a ton of ways to display her! Which parts would you choose!?
009

This would be my ideal Homu-homu! (*゚∀゚)=3

Aww, she is just too cute!! I really adore this expression… though the others are also really nice. It’s so hard to pick!!

Tsukki is still away on his trip to China! 

The Bramble is valiantly defending his desk, just like when Gakkun was away in China!! Although I do wonder how he managed to move between desks…

001

He seems a bit  busy at the moment though…
So I can grab this sample away from the desk!! 😀

002

And so today I’ll be taking a look at…

Black Gold Saw -animation version- !

She is of course one of the girls from the anime of Black Rock Shooter – she can be seen watching one of Black Rock Shooter’s battles in the movie. She is also the 3rd figure to join the 1/8th scale Black Rock Shooter -animation version- set of figures!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

Her outfit has a very similar design to BRS-chan – it even has that same famous star mark. At the moment we don’t really know exactly what their connection is, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough!

004

Isn’t she a beauty!

She has a more mature feeling when compared to the previously released BRS-chan and DM-chan figures. That upward glance is also wonderful – I makes my heart skip a beat every time I see those eyes!

005

A long angle between her hips and breast!

She definitely has much more of a bust when compared to BRS-chan. ^^;

But just as stunning as her bust is her stomach line!!!
There is so much skin visible as well! You can even see her pelvis bone!! It’s just so tempting!!

006

Incredible thighs! (Front)

They are so soft and slender, yet still have a nice padded feeling to them! I also love the way you can just see her socks sticking out the top of her boots here!

007

Incredible thighs! (Back)

Looking from the top like this you really get a feeling for how baggy her pants are – anyone who says this isn’t sexy needs to get their priorities straight! xD

008

Just like previous figures from the series, the stand features a diorama from the BRS world!

Golden Saw-san’s stand is covered in crumbling blocks and signs of a big battle taking place – which really suits the dynamic pose of the figure. The chains can all be attached easily by reading through the included instructions.

010

Beautiful, long flowing hair!

As if the pose itself didn’t give enough of a dynamic feeling, her hair adds even more of an impressive effect – it really feels like she’ll jump to life at any second. That view of her back is also incredibly sexy!

009

Her giant sword, ‘King Saw’!

A unique sword that is filled with sharp edges like a saw – it’s really huge and looks like it could cut through anything!! It is also covered in a number of scratches and dents – clearly a sign of all the battles Black Gold Saw has been in during the past!

011

– Notice –

The Hatsune Miku Good Smile BMW has come first in a major race!

Gakkun is out on a trip to China!

Just like when Tsukki was away, Bramble is protecting the desk in his absence! He opens fire on anyone who attempts to steal any figures while he is away.

001

However, I shall not lose to the little Bramble!

That box is clearly a sample, and I’ll be taking it!!

004

And inside that box is this beautiful sight!

Included with ‘Black Rock Shooter THE GAME’ White Premium Box:

figma WRS!

Imageepoch will be releasing Black Rock Shooter THE GAME on 08/25, and this will be included with the limited edition!

Indeed it is! You can even watch the OP video over here:

http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/1308097319

You can see the incredible quality!!!

The animation work was done by ufotable, who are well known for their work on anime works such as Kara no Kyoukai! The first time I saw it I literally got goose bumps… it’s just that incredible!! I’m really looking forward to the actual game!

002

And this figma WRS is included with the limited edition of the game!

This is how the packaging looks!

It’s filled with extras – there are two layers to it! 😛

ufotable is working so hard on the animation for the game, and we are making sure the figure matches up to their incredible work!

003

A closer look at the lower layer!

The huge wings are called ‘White Wings’, and parts in the lower right are the parts that connect the wings together! You need to push them in until you hear a click, so if they’re falling apart make sure you’ve connected them fully!

013

Here she is with all the parts connected up!

T-This really is a stunning sight!!

As a member of the team it’s a bit weird for me to praise it so much… but it really is just that incredible –  the sculpting, the painting – everything is so carefully detailed!

Her weapon, ‘White Scythe’ is also just as amazing!

If you look carefully the handle is split into two parts…

006

This is how she looks from the back!

Just look at how much space she takes up! And she looks just as incredible from the back! Of course the White Wing can be removed at any time.

011

She also comes with a red flame!

In comparison to the blue flame over BRS’s eye, WRS has a red flame. It’s made using clear plastic which gives a really nice effect. She comes with a replaceable fringe part that needs to be used to attach the flame.

Plus she has a transformed collar part!

The normal version is the basic version, while using these parts creates the armored version, which even has posable tips!

007

She can be posed in epic combat poses!

ヽ    /     └ー.┘     ヽ /    /

008

She really is incredible!!

On these long parts, each of the little sections are connected with ball joints!

You can pose it in all kinds of different windy shapes by using the loads of joints which really helps with creating incredibly dynamic poses. It’s really incredible! The connecting part for the White Wings is also fitted with a joint allowing the wings to be moved backward and forward.

There is simply nothing to criticize!  。・゚・(ノД`)・゚・。

009

But there is still more! She also comes with three expressions!
First is her taunting expression!

She is sticking her tongue out with a fearless smile across her face!

Another thing to mention is that she is incredibly easy to pose, just like figma BRS was – she sticks in poses very easily and without any stress.

012
Posed without her wings or flame!

This is actually my favorite picture!

Just look at that sexy body! (*゚∀゚)=3

Those hips… those hips are just beautiful…

As a side note, when the wings are detached she can still be posed on the figma stand, so don’t worry about that – I just decided to not use it for this shot!

010

The last expression is a shouting face!

She looks fairly insane, but it looks great!

I really think this expression brings out huke’s style very nicely – I send out an applause to Gakkun out in China, as he was in charge of this figure!

004

Due to go on sale from 08/25!

Aki-san leaning forward on the table during a meeting!
What could be so important that it would warrant him climbing on the desk??

001

And next to him I see a master figure’s box!

Last week I didn’t get to play with a single figure, but this week I’ll be be taking a look at a lot to make up!

002

Starting off with this one!

Nendoroid Nymph!

From the popular anime that is about to hit the cinemas with ‘Sora no Otoshimono’ comes a Nendoroid of the Electronic Warfare Angeloid, Type Beta – Nymph.

The second Nendoroid from the series, following on from last month’s Ikaros!

And what a wonderfully lascivious outfit she is wearing!!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

Her wings are made from clear blue plastic, and just like Nendoroid Ikaros, they can move up and down!

Also take note of the tiny little slits at the bottom of her mantle – such fine detail!
004

The mantle can be removed!

       / ̄ ̄ ̄\
     / ─    ─  \    ”Is she wearing any?
    /  <○>  <○>  \.    Well? Tell me!!”
    |   (__人__) し |  
    \    ` ⌒´    / 
    /  し          \

No other Nendoroid has had so many slits is such revealing places…

I’m not going to show you more than this – you’ll have to check yourself!

Mikatan blog has a magical barrier blocking any photos under skirts!

005

She comes with an upset expression!

Nymph is well known for her sudden mood changes, so this had to be included – the bright red cheeks trying to hide her embarrassment are so adorable!

That bent right arm suits the expression so well!

Was anyone wondering where the wings went for this photo? Did you think I forgot to attach them?! Don’t be silly, there is no way I’d forget! 😛

006

She also comes with her cut wings!

Nymph’s wings were cut off by a harpy in the first season, so this allows you to recreate her after that time! To include extra options like this… once again we are seeing Take-chan’s love for the series that me makes figures of!

007

A different bent right arm!

This one allows you to recreate this pose with her hand placed near her mouth, giving you another option when displaying her in tsundere mode!

But seriously… that expression is just too cute!! Σ(゚∀゚*)

008

Of course she also comes with this expression!

A chibi face, potato chips and arms to hold them!

Nymph was always carrying those around with her and munching on them! Just looking at her like this makes me feel all happy inside!

009

 
Displayed with Ikaros!

It’s too much! It’s just too cute!
If anyone could call this not cute then they couldn’t possibly find anything that is cute!

From Sora no Otoshimono f:

Nendoroid Nymph!
