312: Figurines - Preview: Compiled of recent previewed/announced items

Hatsune Miku & Megurine Luka!

Miku has her hands on her hips in a very happy looking pose, while Luka has a bent leg for a rather sexy looking pose! Compared to the previously releasedNendo Petite Vocaloids they have completely different poses with a much more dynamic feel!

Even if you already have these two from the first set, I’m confident you’ll be happy to add the new ones to your collection!

Kagamine Len & Kagamine Rin!

The two of them are looking in opposite directions, so posing them together like this looks really nice!! Just look at all the details on their outfits – from the triangle shapes on their suspenders down to even the buckle on Rin’s belt!

The amount of separately painted areas is absolutely amazing! It’s like writing your name on a grain of rice!


Ooh!! MEIKO looks super sexy!! It’s not often you see sex appeal in a Nendoroid Petite!! Her outfit has a shiny paint coat to make it look leathery, whereas KAITO instead has a beautiful pearl coating!

They’re both quite simple, but still absolutely gorgeous!

Kagamine Len (Servant of Evil) &
Kagamine Rin (Daughter of Evil)!

As I’m sure most of you know, these two come from the popular ‘Series of Evil’ songs! Now they get to be figures too, yay!!

Just looking at that cunning expression on Rin’s face makes me want to bow down to her, while Len instead has a rather serious expression that makes him look very determined… and cute!!

Hatsune Miku (Romeo & Cinderella) &
Hatsune Miku (Deep Sea Girl)!

The Romeo & Cinderella Miku is both cute and sexy at the same time!! I also think it’s the very first Nendoroid Petite to ever be posed in a lying position!!

The Deep Sea Girl Miku is wearing her beautiful black dress and has a super mysterious feeling about her! Also make sure you take a good look at her twin-tails – they have a subtle, but beautiful gradient!

Megurine Luka (Akahitoha) &
Hatsune Miku (Mikurisutaru)!

This Luka is wearing a beautiful pink kimono with her hair blowing in the wind! She has a rather sorrowful expression which also looks great – its nice to have a more traditional Japanese looking figure!!

But of all the 12 characters, the most impressive paintwork has to be Mikurisutaru! The pearl coat on her skirt and the pink/blue gradient on her twin tails together with the spiraling pearl lines – every part of her looks fantastic!

That’s the complete 12 character lineup!

If you check the GSC website you can take a look at the lovely photos taken by a professional, together with some thoughts from Mikudayo, the Publicity Ambassador! Thanks Mikudayo!! (`・ω・´)

There is also a little Twitter counter trying to reach 3939 tweets! (3939 can be read as ‘MikuMiku’ in Japanese!) A special Twitter skin will be revealed for all to use once we reach 3939 tweets, so be sure to take a look!

Finally a quick notice! (=゚ω゚)ノ

Hatsune Miku Live Party 2013 in Kansai Mikupa starts today and Good Smile will be attending the event! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ

Anyway… ever since their first debut at WonFes I’ve been introducing some of the new characters one by one…

The fan-characters so far are “Deep Sea Miku’, ‘Daughter of Evil Rin’, ‘Servant of Evil Len’, ‘Mikurisutaru’ and ‘Akahitoha Luka’!! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ

Each of them are so cute, and are great figure versions of the illustrations they are based on. But who will the final fan-based character be?!

It’s time to reveal the 12th character…


Hatsune Miku: Romeo & Cinderella!

Every time I go to karaoke someone will always sing doriko’s hit song ‘Romeo and Cinderella’! Just look at Miku’s sexy gaze and pose!!

This beautiful illustration was by nezuki!

Every time I look at it it’s so pretty… and sexy!! (*゜∀゜)=3

Even the apple in her hands and the tiny dots on her camisole have been carefully added onto the Nendoroid Petite!

This is how she looks from the back!

The way her bottom and thighs stick out from the side is so cute!

There is no way I won’t be adding her to my collection!! Σ(`・ω・´)

The Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Selection!
All 12 characters have been announced!

A second set following on from the popular Nendo Petite Vocaloids sold in 2009, 2010 and 2011! For both those who missed out on the first set, and for those who have the first set and want to add even more to it… there are so many cute characters to add to your collection and display on your desk or shelves!

Now for a quick notice!

With the recent production circumstances and exchange rates in China, it’s very hard to leave products priced at ¥500… and thus the Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Selection and possibly other future Nendoroid Petites will be changing from ¥500 to ¥600 each . I hope that doesn’t cause too much trouble for the Nendo Petite fans out there!!

That said, I know that everyone will still be very satisfied if they choose to pick them up! The time and effort that does into these products is nothing to laugh at, and everyone works super hard to ensure that even if they’re small, they are still amazing figures! I hope everyone will continue to support the series!!

Nendoroid Sakura Miku!
Nendoroid Miku is back again as ‘Sakura Miku’ , wearing an adorable pink outfit created with the image of cherry blossoms. The design is based on an illustration by Putidevil, which has been converted into Nendoroid form with careful attention to the meticulous use of color in the illustration!

She comes with her standard expression, a crying face as well as an innocent expression munching on a rice cake. She also comes with an alternate head part which allows you to change the accessories in her hair into cherries to suit the season even more! Enjoy your Spring with Sakura Miku by your side!

This is a release sample, and it has come out looking adorable!

I must say that I’m more than satisfied with the final product! I actually went through to China with Tsukki and took a look at the Sakura Miku production line. The posts were placed on the GSC newcomers blog and are only available in Japanese, but you’re welcome to have a look!

- Mikatan’s China Business Trip Diary -

This is how the packaging looks!

There aren’t a huge number of small parts, but there are three different expressions, two different head parts, cushions and a cherry blossom pedestal… so many big parts!

For those wondering why there are two different heads – In the front you can see the one has sakura headphones, while the other uses Miku’s standard headphones, and on the back the difference is between Miku’s standard hair accessories and cherry hair accessories. It’s quite hard to tell the two apart, but the hair for the sakura headphones has a hollowed out area in her side hair.

This is how she looks from the back!

The cherries at her hips are very cute!

The beautiful clear twintails also have lovely pink and white cherry blossom prints on them! I know it was not an easy task to do that clear gradient together with such detailed paintwork, but I couldn’t be happier with how beautifully they’ve come out!

Switch to the cherry hair accessories!

This requires a complete switch of head parts, but these hair accessories give a very different feel to her! She looks more cute and innocent now!!

A crying expression!

Cherry bloom and fade so quickly, you can’t help but shed a tear sometimes! You can also further pose her holding this little blossom… it creates such a beautiful pose!

Left and right bent arms and legs are included, allowing for all sorts of different pose combinations!

A chibi expression and sakura pedestal!

This unbelievably cute expression is included to recreate a very specific pose which I’ll show just after this!

The pedestal she is sitting on is made to look like one big cherry blossom, and sits on top of the standard base like this. You can also pose her entirely without the standard base (propped up with her twintails), but its very easy for her to fall over in that case.

Sitting on cushions eating sakura mochi!

I’m sure many of you will have noticed already, but this is a complete rendition of Putidevil’s original illustration! This pose combined with the chibi face is so perfect!

An adorable Sakura Miku-san sitting on three three bright green cushions while munching on some sakura mochi… If this isn’t cute, then I don’t know what is!

Bonus! Sakura Miku Charm!

The very first figure of Sakura Miku was actually released as this charm and given to all those who entered Mikupa 2011! Even as a small charm the paintwork was so very intricate and it even used stamp paintwork! Far too much effort was put into something so small!

I remember when Gakkun from the manufacturing team and Fuumin from the 3D team were working so hard to get the very best quality possible! She’s been on display at my desk for some time now, so the colors have faded a bit… but she still looks incredible to me!!

Bonus! The cushions can be separated!

As you can see from the photo, here I have just one cushion instead of the three! You can even pile up more than three cushions if you manage to get your hands on more than one Sakura Miku!

Plus if the legs fit, you can place some other characters on the cushion too! But if the head is too heavy, you might need to place the cushion on the standard base to keep them from falling over!

These were the selected catch phrases!

“A cherry-blossom colored, palm-sized idol action figure!”
“The small songstress floating down on a gentle spring breeze ♪”

You might remember back on the 5th November 2012 we held a competition to decide the packaging catch phrases! Thanks to everyone who sent in ideas!

- Send in Your Catch Phrase Ideas for Nendoroid Sakura Miku’s Packaging! -

Apparently there were over 1500 entires!! (((゚Д゚)))

It was rather hard to decide on a winner, but together with Crypton we decided on phrases sent in by “Kiyomi” and “Negi to Rock”! Thanks and congratulations to both of them! We’ll be sending a little gift through to you both as thanks – you should find a mail from me in your inbox!! (´∀`)

Nendoroid Sakura Miku!

Nendoroid Chariot with Mary (Tank) Set:
From the anime series that aired during Fuji TV’s noitaminA block, ‘Black Rock Shooter’ comes a Nendoroid of Chariot, the character specially designed for the TV series! The set also includes a Nendoroid-sized version of Mary, the spider-like tank that Chariot used to torture Black Rock Shooter. Chariot can also ride Mary, allowing you to recreate all sorts of scenes from the anime!

A double set with some impressive volume! (((゚Д゚)))

But the main thing I want to point out isn’t the size, it’s the incredible quality of detail!! The sculptors have truly done an amazing job, and I also have to commend huke-san for his amazing original design as well!

This is how she looks from the back!

Both Chariot and Mary are so very detailed! (As a side note, this is actually the first time I knew the tank’s name was Mary… what a cute name! )

I also love the ‘angular’ sculpting of Chariot’s hair! It has a very anime-esque feeling to it, but also seems like a rather unique design compared to previous Nendoroids!

A look from a high angle! Mary is huge!

Mary must be about 50% bigger than Chariot herself. The balance of the chibi Nendoroid look and the detail is excellent, they’re both so well done!!

Mary is also very posable!

The arrows here show areas that clench into each other allowing the legs to be moved up and down! The base of each leg can also be moved backward and forward giving you lots of control over the legs!

Additionally, the front and back are linked with a ball-joint to allow them to be posed at different angles to each other, so you really have a lot of freedom when trying to pose Mary!

Her sword and shield are included!

Ah! The shield is Mary-chan’s wheel!! Who ever thought a wheel would make such an amazing looking shield! Obviously she also comes with special hand parts allowing her to hold both the sword and shield!

A disdainful expression and macaroons!

Macaroons, yay!! *:.。.:*・゚(n’∀’)n’゚・*:.。.:*・゚゚・!!

Special arms to display her holding the macaroons like this are also included, recreating the scene where she is throwing them at Shooter-chan!! I love yandere characters so this expression and pose are absolutely priceless to me!!

She can also ride on Mary!

But hang on… why does Mary look so violent all of a sudden?!

Even Mary comes with both a standard and angry expression!!
Plus they’ll be compatible with other Nendo Petite expressions!

For a two-figure set, it really is filled with a lot of wonderful goodies!! Just imagine some of the things you can do if the expressions are compatible with other Nendo Petite expressions!

Chariot’s thighs and knees are also fitted with joints!

This allows you to pose her sitting down in Mary like this!

The BRS Nendoroids have a history of being more articulated than other Nendoroids, which is definitely one of my best things about them – it’s so much fun being able to move them around and make some amazing scenes!

Nendoroid Chariot with Mary (Tank) Set:

She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!! (`・ω・´)
