233: Figure - Nendo/Figma/Preview: More Nendo Supports previews and Figma Saber Bride
Nendoroid Tachikoma : Cheerful Ver.!
Nendoroid Kamui Kobayashi: Ganbare Japan Ver.!
The 10th month of Cheerful JAPAN! products brings these two lovely additions to the line-up! They are each sold separately though – they are not a set.
The damage that has occurred during the March 11 quake in the Touhoku region is astounding, and in order to get over the destruction caused there is a lot that needs to be done, and lots of support that needs to be given. Good Smile Company has formed a support group named ‘Cheerful Japan’ which will strive to support the relief efforts for as long as possible. For at least 1 year we be releasing charity products among other efforts to raise donation money for the cause. To everyone who supports the Cheerful Japan movement – thank you, and know that your money is going where it is needed!
Nendoroid Tachikoma : Cheerful Ver.
As a part of the 10th month of Cheerful JAPAN!, the adorable Nendoroid Tachikoma is coming back in a special ‘Cheerful Ver.’.! Along with all the optional parts from the original version, this version also has a number of extras to help him cheer everyone on!
This is how the original Tachikoma’s packaging looked!
This new version includes all of these parts as well! Along with a whole bunch of new parts!
What kind of parts…?
W-What is this?!
Production I.G illustrated the Cheerful Tachikoma for us!
Cheerful Goods #1 : A Banner!
The writing and position is exactly the same as the illustration above. It reads ‘Hooray! Hooray! Japan!’ Of course Tachikoma can hold it in his little mechanical hand – he looks so cute holding it! (It might end up being attached to his arm, depending on how the production goes)
Cheerful Goods #2 : A Folding Fan
Here we have Tachokoma waving hid folding fan which features the Japanese flag! It really gets my spirit up to see this… the manipulator arms of Tachikoma come in two types – open and closed.
Cheerful Goods #3 : Pompons!
There were many people wondering how these would connect to Tachikoma – they actually just connect on like normal hands, they are not held in the actual manipulator hands of the figure. They are very small parts, so you’ll have to be careful not to lose them!
I really think Tachikoma with pompons is adorable!! (*´ω`*)
And we have another product this month!
Nendoroid Kamui Kobayashi: Ganbare Japan Ver.
As a part of the ‘Cheerful JAPAN!’ project, Kamui Kobayashi is rejoining the Nendoroid world in a special ‘Ganbare Nihon!’ version! He comes with different head parts and a different helmet to the standard version, as well as an all new mini F1 car made specially for Cheerful JAPAN!
The pullback racing car!
You can just see the driver’s helmet sticking out the top of the car! The back part of the car has that ‘wing’ part sticking out which really gives it that racing car feeling!
Plus, as I mentioned it’s a pullback car! (･∀･)ﾉ
Pull it back a little and let it go and it’ll go racing ahead! It’ll work on desks, or floors – wherever you want to have a little fun!
He also comes with this white helmet!
You can pose him wearing it like this, or have him holding the helmet instead like the images above this one. This is the helmet that was used in the Malaysia Grand Prix and Chinese Grand Prix! Just like his suit, the helmet also has all the sponsor logos on it! They’re so tiny!
Famitsu updated their Site with preview images of the upcoming“Figma Saber Bride” from Fate/Extra CCC by Max Factory ^^
As mentioned before, the figure will be an exclusive and will be bundled together with the release of Limited Edition “Type-Moon Virgin White Box” pack of the game. The pack will be up for10,479 Yen retail price and is scheduled for Spring 2012 release.
Happy OTAKU-ing !? *cough* *cough*
