    More Himouto! Umaru-chan Nendoroids Are In The Works

    For one brief, shining moment Umaru-chan was all the rage in the figure world. Nendoroid, trading figures, and merchandise out the wazoo. She was the It Girl for roughly 4 months, and now we see absolutely nothing from the show. But a second season is starting soon, which means it’s time for this short-lived hype train to get back on the tracks.

    Good Smile Company showed off an unpainted Nendoroid of Nana Ebina the other day, and she looks so cute! She has had a whopping 1 figure before this, and it was a little trading one, so this is a great day to be a Nana fan.

    Check Out The New Racing & Snow Miku Designs

    Usually we get a decent amount of time between the reveal of Good Smile’s two seasonal Mikus, Snow and Racing. But this year, they’re going a little crazy for her 10th anniversary and showing off both at the same time! Because what we need this week is more Miku news, don’t you think?

    I must admit that the Racing designs almost never win me over until I see a sculpted scale, and this one is no different: it’s a little blah, and I feel like the ‘royalty’ theme for her is a little overdone. The Snow design, though, is so cute! Makes me sad we never get scales of the Snow designs.

    Summer WonFest 2017: Nendoroids

    Every Wonder Festival I think to myself “there can’t possibly be even more Nendoroids at the next WonFest.” Then, like magic, the Nendo Creep happens and we get at least 5-10 more than last year at the next event. It’s a plague, a really cute plastic plague. I think they’re multiplying on their own at this point.

    This year we have a bounty of Nendos, so let’s get into it. We’ve got Ariel, Astolfo, Mordred, Lina Inverse, Yumeko Jabami from Kakegurui, Elf Yamada from Eromanga Sensei, Portal 2, KanColle, Meitantei Conan, Beatrice from Re;Zero, Wonder Woman, Overwatch, Mega Man, The Snack World, Sword Art Online, Fullmetal Alchemist, and so much more. They are all named in the gallery below for your viewing pleasure.

    And don’t forget we’ve already seen Nendos from Orange Rouge, Pokemon, Breath of the Wild, and Vocaloid! Which one are you looking forward to the most?
