202: Figure - Nendo/PVC/Figma: More Figurines Preview from Max Factory and GSC 2011 Figure-Selling Chart

The 2011 Good Smile…

Product Ranking!

This year was GSC’s 10th Anniversary and we put a lot of work into approaching the overseas market as well! So today I’ve split up the rankings into ‘Japan’, ‘Overseas’ and a combined ranking of both!

First we’ll look at the ‘Japan’ and ‘Overseas’ rankings!

If you compare the two you can notice quite a few differences!

The ranking only includes products that have been released in 2011, so products still up for preorder don’t count!

30th: figma KOS-MOS ver.4

It looks like BRS is popular overseas as well!! (*゚∀゚)=3

I’m pleasantly surprised to see figma BRS2035 at the third place position in the overseas ranking! There are also a couple that didn’t even feature on the Japan ranking, such as 8th place – Nendoroid Ikaros and 23rd place – figma Robocop! All-in-all though, I think we can say it was very much the year of Madoka Magica!

Right, now for the combined rankings!!

First we’ll look at 30th~11th place! We’re looking in reverse this time around!
- Overall Ranking -

30th: figma Rei Ayanami: Plugsuit ver.

14th: figma KOS-MOS ver.4
13th: Miku Hatsune: Lat-type Ver.
12th: Nendoroid Kirino Kousaka
11th: Nendoroid Kuroneko

Of the 20 products here, 15 of them are figma or Nendoroid products!!
They are unparalleled in popularity it seems! But I guess that just goes to show that the scale figures that made it into the ranking must have been impressive to beat some of the Nendoroids and figmas in sales.
- Overall Ranking –

10th: figma BRS2035
 9th: Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Playtime Edition
 8th: Nendoroid Mami Tomoe
 7th: figma Madoka Kaname
 6th: figma Homura Akemi
 5th: Nendoroid Miku Hatsune: Absolute HMO Edition
 4th: Nendoroid Homura Akemi

Nothing but names from Madoka and Miku!!
I’m personally very happy to see the posable Nendoroids – HMO and Snow Miku so high up in the ranking! I hope we’ll see more posable Nendoroids in 2012! (Just my personal hopes, though )

Anyway, let’s move onto the top 3!

3rd Place

Nendoroid Madoka Kaname

We received so much lovely feedback about this one as well! The lovely Nendoroid Madoka takes third place this year!! When I first uploaded a picture on twitter of this Nendo, I remember refreshing the page to see the view count jump up each time – it was incredible! It was a great product, and the included QB was just too cute!
2nd Place 

figma Miku Hatsune: Append ver.

Append Miku takes the 2nd place seat! Even as a figma, she featured gradient painting, clear parts and lovely extras! Also an incredible product overall!

Plus those lovely bare feet!!! (*゚∀゚)=3
1st Place

Nendoroid Miku Hatsune: Cheerful Ver.

Miku ends 2011 as the best selling product of the year!!

Not to mention that this Cheerful Ver. of Miku was sold to raise funds to help those affected by the earthquake and tsunami. Thank you so much to everyone who purchased her. I hope those in the affected areas are on their way to a full recovery!

Happy OTAKU-ing !? *cough* *cough*
