“Ikoku Meiro no Croisee” Petits Celebrate Paris Moe But Painfully Unexciteable


Seven Two is a new company known for making a big splash with their trio of Kyubey releases, but this time, they’re out to show that they’re not just in the business to make a marketing pitch for white contract-making trolls. Following the said Kyubey releases, Seven Two will be following them up with this Nendoroid Petit set for the just concluded Paris-bound anime, “Ikoku Meiro no Croisee.” Unlike the previously featured book bundle which only included the adorable Yune, this set also includes the hardheaded Claude and the hyperactive oujo-sama, Alice. All 3 will be included with accessories easily identifiable to each of them so that you can at least recreate some of the scenes in the show. The set will retail for 2000 yen and will be released next year in April. Loved the show, but I’m not a big enough fan to get this.

C3xHOBBY Event Roundup: Same Old, Same Old… Only In Technicolor

Unsatisfied with the semi-annual monetary carnage brought about by Wonder Festival, figure manufacturers have once again brought out their wares for future consumption. However, unlike WonFes, C3xHOBBY seems more like a minor technicolor preview of already featured goods, rather than the major blockbuster wallet beat down we’ve come to expect. There won’t be comments on most of the figures, except those with undesirable stuff to note of (like release dates and if available, price) as we’ve covered them already in the previous Wonder Festival coverages. More pics after the break… Continue reading
