Nendoroid Miku Hatsune: Append Ver.

The GSC offices after last week’s events!

001

Yep, it’s a bit messy. πŸ˜›

A big thank you to everyone who visited us at Anisummer or CharaHobby over the weekend – as well as everyone who watched the live broadcast!

It’s a pity the weather was not great over the weekend, but I hope you all still enjoyed yourself at least a little bit! Look out for more events we’ll be participating in soon! πŸ˜€

002

Noe let’s take a look at one of the figures that was on display at CharaHobby!

Nendoroid Miku Hatsune: Append Ver.!

Miku Append is the new version of Miku that was created from the additional library pack ‘Miku Append’, and is now getting the Nendoroid treatment byΒ  sculptor Asai Masaki.

Indeed it is! A special base designed using a combination of black and clear plastic just for Append Miku.

Plus the base has a little gimmick built in!
We’ll take a look at that at the very end of the blog!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

Append Miku is just as sexy as a Nendoroid, but has a nice cute side to her as well! The way her hair is made using a gradient on clear plastic is absolutely stunning!!

004

Let’s take a look at the optional parts!

First up is her smiling face!

Generally speaking Append Miku is supposed to have a ‘cool’ feeling about her, but you can always transform her into a cute smiling Miku with parts like this!

She also comes with an outstretched arms!
The photo above only uses the left arm, but she in fact has one for her right arm as well!

005

A calm expression with closed eyes!

It’s a very mature looking face – not something you see very often on Nendoroids! But that’s just what Append Miku is here for – a change from the normal!

She also has two bent arms to cover her hears!
Append Miku is well known for this pose of her covering her ears -doesn’t it look sexy? Even though it’s a Nendoroid! πŸ˜›

006

Mix up the different arm bits a little!

With one bent arm and one outstretched arm you can make a lovely pose like this one! She also has her hips bent to the side a bit – the armored bits around her hips don’t get in the way at all for poses!

You can of course pose her like that as well!

007

Awakened Mode!! (`ο½₯Ο‰ο½₯Β΄)

The little flap on her stomach is also of course included for this pose!! It uses a whole bunch of extra parts as well! – Five of them in fact!

γ€€Awakened Body (With the stomach flap)
γ€€Awakened Arms (The top of the black gloves is open)
γ€€Awakened Hip Parts (Little wing things are attached!)
γ€€Awakened Cord (A cord coming out of her back!)
γ€€Awakened Legs

All of those are included just for the awakened pose! It’s almost another complete Nendoroid! πŸ˜›

You can also see the base has changed quite considerably!
If you take off the black top you can do mid air poses!
Now it looks just like the 1/8th scale Append Miku’s stand – in Nendoroid form!

008

Plus!

The base also includes LED lights!!

Oooh! They’re so pretty! Append Miku already has a nice transparent feeling to her, so the lighting works really nicely for her! We haven’t had LED lights on a Nendoroid since Nendoroid Drossel – definitely the first time it’s been on a base of a Nendoroid.I hear that this year’s Snow Miku might also make use of LEDs! :O

But that does mean GSC is hard at work preparing for all the events!

Summer might be coming to an end, but the festivities are only just beginning! This weekend marks the start of two events – with another coming up in September!

August 27th/28th (Sat/Sun)

Animelo Summer Live 2011
οΌ Saitama Super Arena
A Good Smile Company tent booth will be setup outside the Saitama Super Arena hall. In the booth you will be able to grab both editions of Black Rock Shooter The Game, and various BRS and Madoka Magica goods will be on display. Indotei will also be there to provide some Indian cuisine!http://www.goodsmile.info/post/ja/3155/

009

The Black Rock Curry!
Deadmaster-san, you’re drooling! xD

008

And this is the Kyubey Curry!

Each curry comes with a pin badge as an extra, and only costs 800JPY!

This year will also have Black Rock Shooter Shaved Ice!
Just like there are two different versions of the BRS game, there will also be two different versions of the shaved ice! Last year it was so popular that we ran out of syrup! The day is scheduled to be a hot summer’s day, so do stop by and cool down with some ice!

Plus!!

001

The GSC newcomers will be doing a live broadcast!

From the left, we have Shuu-chan, Sacchan and Tonchan! It’s a bit early for the glowsticks though… :/

And this time they are in charge of the planning and script as well!

I had a look at the script a little back and it looked like a very fun performance, so do tune in for the broadcast!

Nendoroid Madoka Kaname

Whoa! Just kidding! Tsukki wasn’t really replaced, he is just out on a business trip to China again! But there is something that frog is holding that looks very interesting…!

The Nendo everyone is waiting for is coming tomorrow!

b
The first in the Madoka Magica Nendoroid Series:
Nendoroid Madoka Kaname!

Madoka Magica was hugely popular at this year’s Comiket, and from that series comes a Nendoroid of the kindhearted Madoka Kaname! Sorry for the wait everyone – I know you’ve been waiting for her!

She should be in stores from tomorrow!

Of course, I’ll be doing a quick sample review right now! Whee!
c

Let’s start with a look at the optional parts!

First is her upset face and arrow of light!

This expression is perfect for Madoka when she is fighting – even upset she still looks adorable though! This pose also makes use of the bent leg parts and stand to make her look posed in mid-air!

The pink parts on the arrow and bow use clear plastic!
She looks just as wonderful as she did in the series!
d

γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€ / ̄ ̄\
   / .γƒΌγ€€γ€€γƒΌ οΌΌ ← Takanon, (Sculptor)
γ€€γ€€γ€€|γ€€οΌˆβ—οΌ‰γ€€οΌˆβ—οΌ‰ |γ€€γ€€
γ€€γ€€γ€€|γ€€ (__δΊΊ__οΌ‰|
γ€€γ€€γ€€|γ€€γ€€γ€€ο½€i γ€€iΒ΄γ€€ |γ€€γ€€ “Don’t tell anyone, but I think QB
γ€€γ€€γ€€|γ€€γ€€γ€€. `βŒ’ γ€€ }γ€€γ€€γ€€ might be my best sculpting work ever…”
   ヽ       }γ€€
γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€γƒ½γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€γƒŽγ€€
   /      ヽ 

Takanon is very proud of his work on QB!
He can also be posed dangling from Madoka’s arm!

The default pose is the sitting QB, but you just switch the head and tail to another body and then he can be posed like this!

And my best thing about QB are his back paws!!
The way they are spread apart makes him look just like a little animal! It’s so cute!

e

The unexpected scribble expression!

This expression is of course based on the little drawing Madoka did of herself! πŸ˜› These kind of fun parts are one of the best things about Nendoroids! I also mentioned it before, but that illustration was actually drawn by Madoka’s voice actress, Aoi Yuuki! Mami-san’s expression is also super cute! xD

f

Time to play with other expressions!

It just has to be done now – it also makes sure for everyone that she has good compatibility with other Nendoroid expressions! It’s so fun to see how characters look with the expressions of others!!

First up is the famous ‘ヽ(*゚д゚)γƒŽ‘ Face!

Madoka petting Kyubey with this face… she looks like a little kindergarten girl now. πŸ˜›

g

Madoka with a
catlike glance and :3!

Seen QB seemed like a little animal, this makes Madoka seem cat-like as well! I must say, if I were to ever see Madoka make this expression in the series I’d be VERY surprised. πŸ˜› You can also see QB rolling around on the ground next to her! Awww, he is so cute!

h

This is how the packaging looks! Nendoroid #174!
(Wow… we’re already on #174!?)

The first Madoka Magica Nendoroid:

huke’s very first art book will be titled –

BLK!

And it will come in two different editions.

(゚д゚) BLK
γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€β†’ The art book alone, which will sell for 3200JPY.

(゚д゚) BLK Limited Edition (With figma BRSB)
γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€γ€€β†’ The art book plus a figma, which will sell for 6800JPY.

001

And so….

Today I’ll be taking a look at the included figma BRSB!

Master figures of figmas are very fragile so I can’t be too bold with my posing, but I’ll try my best!

002

BLK Limited Edition (With figma BRSB)!

huke is the creator of Black Rock Shooter, but also famous for his character designs in other series such as the popular Steins; Gate – his first ark book ‘BLK’ brings all his work together, and to commemorate it’s sale will also come with this figma of another of his illustrations – BRSB! (Black Rock Shooter BEAST)

γ€€γ€€γ€€ /   <β—‹> γ€€<β—‹>γ€€ οΌΌγ€€γ€€ Black Rock Shooter BEAST? I’ve never heard of it!”

γ€€γ€€γ€€ / γ€€γ€€ γ€€ οΎžγƒΌ β€²γ€€γ€€οΌΌ

009

The mysterious BRS on the front cover of the art book is in fact BRSB!

You can see the illustration above! I do wonder how exactly she differs from the normal BRS-chan… I guess maybe she is more wild and ‘beast’-like as the name suggests?
003

This is how she looks from the back!

Isn’t that a skirt…? Plus it looks like if you opened that zip the skirt would just fall off! πŸ˜› I also really love the legs – the futuristic look suits her really nicely! The tatoo design on her back also adds a nice sexy feel to her!

004

A giant sword – the BRS Blade!

It’s absolutely humongous, and when BRSB-chan holds it she looks awesome!

She also has a blue flame on her eye like BRS-chan!

By the way, the crown thing on her head can be removed, but it will leave a little hole where it attaches – it doesn’t really stand out though, so it shouldn’t be a problem.

005


The ‘Seven Shot’ that featured in the illustration!

Plus she has special hands just to hold the huge gun as well! I think I’m doing pretty well with the poses for once – it’s so easy to pose!

006

The back of the BRS Blade is incredible!

Look at the minute detail on the patterns and writing!! This has to be my favorite picture for today – she just looks so cute there!

007

She can even hold both at once!

There are a load of extra hand parts included which even let you do things like this! The spiky bit on her knee also has joints put in it so it’s easy to get into a pose without struggling.

008
An expression with closed eyes!

Her mouth also looks tightly shut as she is deep in thought… another cute expression!! The blue flame can also be used on this expression!

017

As another bonus to getting the BLK Limited Edition…
You’ll be able to get a BRSB Avatar in Puchitto Rock Shooter!!

It’s a lovely avatar illustrated by the popular CHAN x CO! For those not playing Puchitto Rock Shooter, you should give it a go – it’s a lot of fun once you give it a try!

Hmm? Tomorrow?

013

Yep! Tomorrow, August 25th…
Is release day for Black Rock Shooter THE GAME!

You’ll finally be able to give it a go, I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait!

The picture here is of the
Black Rock Shooter THE GAME: White Premium BOX!

It’s a limited edition with figma WRS, BRS Artworks and the Limited SoundtrackΒ  all included! Must have products for fans!

014


figma WRS !

Just who is WRS-chan??? If you keep the figma by your side while you play the game, you might figure it out! πŸ˜›

This figma really had a lot of work put into it by Gakkun from the production team! I’m sure you’ll all be very happy with it when it arrives at your homes!

015


Black Rock Shooter THE GAME WRS Charm Box!

This special first print edition comes with a little charm based on one of CHAN x CO’s illustrations of WRS! This one is cheaper than the figma set, so have a discussion with your wallet and then decide which one is for you!

But Black Rock Shooter is only getting started now!
Next year in January there will be a TV anime of it on noitaminA!!

http://www.noitamina-brs.jp/

A few years ago I interviewed huke in a cafe in Akihabara… It didn’t seem like such a big thing at the time… but now…!!
Β 
Β 
Anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (γƒ»βˆ€γƒ»)γƒŽγ‚›

Apologies for the sudden advertising at the start… but now even that WonFes is over, the staff are still working as hard as even for these events, so I hope we’ll see you there as well!

002

But anyway, I’m sure you all saw there was a new figure on the table tennis table!

From Ikoku Meiro no CroisΓ©e:

Nendoroid Yune!

She is from Ikoku Meiro no CroisΓ©e (CroisΓ©e in a Foreign Labyrinth), which only started airing in July and is still on air at the moment! Yune is the lovable, hardworking main heroine in the series!

I was able to point out something for once! (I’m usually the one being corrected…), but the emphasis this time is on the ‘true’ kimono!
Look at the incredible details on her kimono!! ((((οΎŸΠ”οΎŸ)))

003

This is how she looks from the back!

First of all, the design on the kimono is incredibly detailed!!!
The whole thing has a beautiful flower design to it! Even the sash!

She also comes with the umbrella from the series!
Along with hands to hold it! It’s incredible how much goes into Nendoroids now! Such quality and volume for just one Nendoroid – and we’re not even close to being done yet!

004

Let’s take a look at the optional parts!
First up is her book, ‘Les Petites Abeilles’!

This is the book that Claude bought her as a present – she always keeps good care of it! The entire design of the books cover has been carefully shrunk down to Nendoroid size – plus she also comes with a hand to hold it!

005

Her first expression is a worried face!

Yune is so adorable, and seeing her about to burst into tears like this is just so touching!! Yune also comes with two bent arms along with two seperate shoulder parts for bending left and right. This allows you to put the arms in front of her, or by her side instead!

009

She also has a surprised expression & headband!

Yune is constantly surprised by how different it is in a foreign country, and this expression captures that surprise perfectly! She also comes with the headband she uses when cleaning up the store!

006
But there is still more to come!

She even comes with an apron!

Of course you can combine this with the headband above to recreate the cleaning Yune-chan completely, or you can just use the apron itself like in this photo!! Oh, and the cats are not included with the Nendoroid – they are my own personal little kitties! ^^;

007

And finally, an extra lower body to let her bow down!

This is of course the pose from the very first episode – what a perfect Nendoroid recreation of the pose!! The team has definitely worked way to hard on this one – there is just so many extra options! Great work, production team!

008

A bunch of the optional parts all at once!

Ooh! Yune is so cute!! All this along with two other expressions and an extra lower body part for the bowing down! It’ll be really tough to decide how you want to display this one!

001

Hm? Could this be a figure to play with?

It didn’t look like the normal master figure box, so I wasn’t sure at first, but you can see a name written on it…

002

From ToLoveRu Darkness:

Nendoroid Golden Darkness!

She is from the spin off of ToLoveRu titled ‘ToLoveRu Darkness’ which is currently being serialized in Jump Square comes a Nendoroid a dangerous assassin from outer space – Golden Darkness! Some of you may remember that long ago GSC released a 1/8th scale Yami-chan, but many have been waiting for the Nendoroid!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

The two parts of hair on the side are fitted with joints to move back and forward a little bit! As expected Yami-chan’s long golden hair is stunning!

004

Let’s move onto the optional parts!

First up is an embarrassed expression!

γ€€ γ€€ と_οΌΏοΌΏοΌ‰_ヽ_぀_;_γƒΎ_぀.;.

That slight blush with still an angry look on her face is so perfect!

She also has two bent arms for different poses!

Both the shoulder and upper arm can rotate giving you plenty of possibilities!

005

Next up is a blank stare!

It’s amazing how well this expression works for Nendoroids! I’m sure this expression will work on a load of other Nendos too!

She also comes with a 3 taiyaki to munch on as well as a bag to hold them in!

Just look at the high quality on those taiyaki! You can see all the little scales! I want one as well now!

006

She is also happy to have a book with her!

Everyone knows Yami-chan loves her books, so of course the Nendoroid version has one for her to hold with her! There are so many optional extras that Yami-chan fans should be happy about… particularity the next one!

007

Angry hair parts!

This allows you to recreate all the scenes where Yami is attacking with her transformed hair! No matter how angry she may be, she is still super cute! πŸ˜›

To those thinking along those lines…

It’s a good thing that she is a 1/8th scale figure!

And I’ll prove it!Β  (`ο½₯Ο‰ο½₯Β΄)γ‚ž

010

This is the image the pose is based on!

It is actually a part of the ending theme for the anime! The unseen parts such as her left hand’s fingertips being inside her boot is all just the sculptor’s imagination – great job!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

From this angle, you really can’t tell whether she is wearing panties or not!! (Although, I’m sure some will be disappointed, but she definitely is :P) Those high boots are also lovely and sexy!

005

( οΎŸβˆ€οΎŸ)o彑

Oooh! Wonderful!

006

The fingers slipping into her boot!

You know the sculpting is amazing when you can see the sexiness just from looking at her fingertips!!

004

A photo for all you masochists!!Β  (`ο½₯Ο‰ο½₯Β΄)

Just stare into her downward glare for a few seconds – if you’re anything like me it’ll really get your heart beating! πŸ˜€ The way the hair has come out also looks just like the original illustration – I love the way the two sides have such different balance.
008

Even from a side angle she is super sexy!

There is nothing wrong with small breasts, but at the same time I think ArsΓ©ne is showing us exactly why some people prefer them bigger. ^^;
