GSC Nendoroid Irine Colored Preview!

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.

Hehe :”>

Pre-orders are not open yet but the retail price was announced for Y3500.

Nendoroid Spider-Man Now Open for Pre-orders!

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!

Pre-orders are now open! [LINK]

Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013 Design Contest Winning Entry Announced!

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!

An Alien Loli from Space: Review of Nendoroid Touwa Erio

Hello everyone, iLikeLolis here reporting for duty. This is my very short and first blog entry featuring Nendoroid Touwa Erio. She is my favorite character right now and maybe forever so expect reviews from me about her every figure :D Ok, here is a short background of the character. One day, she mysteriously disappeared for six months, with no memory of what happened during that time. At the same time, she began having an extreme fascination with aliens, believing herself to be an alien investigator monitoring humans. Following an incident where she broke her leg whilst trying to fly on her bike, she constantly wraps herself inside a futon.

Now that’s done let’s do the review!(Sorry for the crappy pics, the lights were busted and I didn’t purchase a new lamp yet. Please bear with it XD) Continue reading
