Here’s a good news to all Dragon Nest players who are willing to spend their money (on top of their monthly in-game cash points) for a collectible so damn worthy of purchase! Check out this very cute and lovely Nendoroid Irine by Good Smile Company!~
She’s not a game character but only an NPC. If you haven’t played the game, don’t look down on her just yet. She could be the game’s most popular mascot (aside from scumbag Berlin) and for the newbie players, as soon you’re inside the game, go meet her immediately. Her “bear” may inspire you to play more in one way or another.
Pre-orders are not open yet but the retail price was announced for Y3500.
Out of all the popular anime shows out there, it’s surprising that the latest Nendoroid figure from GSC is not from any 2D titles, but from the American movie “The Amazing Spider Man” featuring none other than the lead super hero himself, Spider Man (who else could it be?). I’m not really a fan of super heroes or nendoroids, but one thing that I can say about this figure is that it has a really nice overall texture and a very cute diorama. They did especially well with his eyes and the black lining of his tight outfit. He’s also part of the Super Movable nendoroid series, so wouldn’t have any worries on breaking joints for more flexible poses. If you’re a big fan of the series, this is surely a great collectible for you!
MegaHouse 1/8 Rin and Okumura was announced last year and it was only a few days ago that a photo taken from Hobby Japan’s page has circulated, featuring the colored version of the said figures. As usual, it has the sleek color finish that MegaHouse is known for. Overall, another great set of male figures from MegaHouse!
GSC 1/8 Shiki Ryogi Garannodou
Kara no Kyoukai
Nov 2008 / Nov 2012
Based from the GSC re-sale poll, she ranked as the top 2 most wanted figure among hundreds of other scaled figures for re-sale. In fact, she’s so rare and popular that the market price for the 1st release figure is now as high as Y16,000 which is a value not so surprising for a very simplistic yet magnificent and elegant figure. Lucky for the collectors who wish to have her, she’s now available again for pre-order with a retail price of only Y6190. Don’t miss your second (and probably the last) chance to grab her!
Pre-orders are now open! (For PH market only): [LINK]
The winning entry for the Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013 design contest has finally been revealed. The theme is that it has to be related to Snow Miku and a bunch of pastries. Over the hundreds of submitted entries that featured generic foreign cakes and desserts, the winning design resembles a traditional Japanese snack, the strawberry mochi. As you can see, she’s also adorned with traditional Japanese clothing and accessories. A very deserving winner, indeed!
She’ll be for sale by 2013 (obviously) as a limited and exclusive nendoroid. Ready your money, folks!
Max Factory 1/7 Samurai (Student Style)
7th Dragon 2020
New and unexpected figure announcement from Max Factory! I didn’t know that this game 7th Dragon 2020 exists prior to the figure announcement, but as a huge Miwa Shirow fan this announcement really shook me. Unfortunately, I am bothered by her high price, long neck and weird knee caps. I may pass on this one, but I’ll excitedly check her out in person if ever one of my mates will buy her.
With excellent product offerings throughout the year, Good Smile Company has certainly laid its stake as one of the premier figure companies today.

Featuring the titular character of the acclaimed “Puella Magi Madoka Magica” series, this figure of Kaname Madoka in her Ultimate form is simply a breathtaking sight to behold. Continue reading →
It’s been a long time since the last episode of Code Geass aired on screen, but that hasn’t stopped Bandai from cashing in on the iconic franchise. With Geass fever bound to hit Japan all over again because of the new Akito of the Exiled movie, it was a good time for the popular toy manufacturer to announce a new figure of the popular and mysterious C.C.. This C.C. is part of Bandai’s chibi-arts toy line which is similar to Good Smile Company’s more lauded Nendoroid figures. As seen in the image above, C.C. comes with a lot of accessories, including the cat, Arthur. She also comes with different face plates so you can play around with her in different scenarios.
Bandai’s chibi-arts C.C. will retail for 3000 yen and is bound for a September 2012 release. Since this is Bandai, expect a timely release for this one. Grab one now!
Accel World is definitely one of the most popular anime title this season. With only about 7 episodes as of date, toy manufactures have already announced and released different merchandise from the title. Kuroyukihime, the petanko leading lady of the series has garnered quite a following already and Good Smile Company plans to take advantage of this by announcing pre-orders of a Nendoroid version of her.

Kyoto Animation recently posted a stop-motion video which features their latest figure to be released: Azusa Nakano Singing ver.
This figure has the height of 10cm which is similar to a regular Nendoroid. She’s priced at 3333 yen and scheduled for November 2012 release.
Bad news for those who want her since she’s Limited + Exclusive and can be bought only through KyoAni website. Either start contacting your proxy or pray that online shops will have her available for preorder. (>.<)
The flag of Germany flies in the sky as Laura Bodewig from the mecha-musume anime “Infinite Stratos” sorties out in her Schwarzer Regen courtesy of Bandai with their Armor Girl Project [AGP] line.
Laura’s Schwarzer Regen is definitely bringing the heat with her railgun making her a formidable opponent at long ranged. Even if the opponent gets close to her, she can still deal her opponents with her beam sabers/spears generated through her hands. With the revelation of this, you can expect the others to follow suit.
Laura Bodewig in her Schwarzer Regen will be available by August of 2012 with the cost 7800 yen.
