    SDCC 2017: Nendoroid Tinker Bell

    I think we were all a little surprised when Good Smile Company announced a veritable truckload of Disney Nendoroids last year. What’s more surprising is how fast the line is going considering how picky I’m sure Disney is: we already have Belle and Rapunzel, and now it’s Tinker Bell’s turn! Seems like they are going to be tackling them in the (general) order they are on the reveal poster.

    I think Tinker Bell perfectly fits in with the Nendoroid shape. She’s so cute and tiny! Look at that lil angry face! I hope the blush is this strong on the final product because it really adds a lot to her character.

    Good Smile Company & Co’s Summer Wonder Festival 2017 Exclusives

    For a few years now I have bemoaning the downfall of festival exclusives. It seems like companies never have anything big and fancy. Well, GSC is making me eat my words for this Summer Wonder Festival because they pulled out ALL the stops.

    First off, finally the return of scaled figures! And what an unexpected one. Max Factory is re-releasing their famous (and rare) Kasumi in 1/20 scale in the PLAMAX line. She’ll retail for ¥3,000. Kaiyodo will also have a new Wonda-chan for ¥9,800.

    We have quite a few Nendoroids. There’s the updated Reimu from Touhou Project (¥5,000) and a set of Asuna & Kirito O.S Versions (¥5,500 for the set). Sadly, these will not be available online and are only at Wonder Festival, Anime Expo, Japan Expo, CCG Expo, Shanghai ChinaJoy, and 2017 18th Comic Exhibition. Everything else will be available online right after the event, which is July 30th. As for regular Nendoroids, there’s a super cute Yuri Katsuki who will get a matching Vincent. Then we have the Nendoroid More Dress Up Wedding Elegant Version (what a mouthful) and the penguin face case which I really need in my life.

    Last, but not least, is WATER GUN SABER FIGMA. Amazing. Perfect. Wonderful. ¥5,500. For the first time in a while, I want the vast majority of these!

    Check Out Pokemon Nendoroid Lillie

    Just in time for the unveiling of Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon we have our first look at Nendoroid Lillie! Speaking of the new announcements… what do you think they will be? Total sequels in the style of B2W2 or just updated versions like Crystal, Platinum, etc?

    Preview Racing Miku 2017 figma & Nendoroid

    There are many things I am a sucker for, but two of the biggest are Racing Miku designs and Tony Taka’s art. So when I saw that the two were finally combined? It was heaven. And while we still don’t have any pictures of the scaled figure, today we get to see both the figma and Nendoroid in action!

    The Nendo (which is already up for order) looks adorable of course, and I love the clear PVC they’ve used on the wings & frilly skirt.
