Update: Preorders are up in Amiami.com. Release date is late October 2010.
The last update I saw on Mikatan when I checked the site this morning was that figurine of Dead Master to complement GSC’s figurine of Black Rock Shooter.
Mark aka Coffeebugg was having a quick chat with me at my desk earlier when I had dropped by Mikatan’s blog again “hoping” that there’d be something new to see.
Lo and behold, Mikatan had posted a new Nendoroid prototype: Nendoroid Saber.
At first glance we were just really happy to see an actual Nendoroid Saber in colored form since the previous versions shown in conventions was the grey proto version which didn’t really show off much. And again, with Saber Lily released before this, we figured that was one tough Nendoroid to beat in the popularity contest.
We were wrong. Very wrong.
At this angle, it looks like every other Nendoroid that came out of GSC shelves. Neh? Continue Reading

Aside from the goosebump-inducing developments in One Piece, the news I’m getting from stuff pre-ordered and upcoming is just staggering! There’s so much to talk about that I was temped to break them up into different posts but I decided to just lump them all together into a single post and leave you guys to ogling them.
Amiami.com finally has merchandise pics of SIC Kamen Rider Ixa and Dark Kiva. But looking at the English site for Amiami, it appears that you would not be able to preorder this through the site. But the odd thing is that I don’t recall this item coming out for preorder in the English site although I did see it in the Japanese site. Japan-exclusive item? Probably. Either way, I’m getting my grubby hands on them.

Yesterday, we saw Mikatan give us updates on the Nendoroid BRS. Now we see Mikatan’s blog with the figma Black Rock Shooter photos. This is definitely something I wouldn’t mind buying.
Damn, that cannon is huge. Part of me is wishing that the shade of blue used for the flame in her left eye was the also used for the Nendoroid version. The shade of blue for the Nendoroid was a bit too blue for my taste. This shade is more fitting. But I’m getting both anyways. ^_^ Continue Reading

Definitely one of the most anticipated Nendoroid releases of this year, photos of the upcoming Nendoroid Black Rock Shooter show up in Mikatan’s blog. These appear to be what it would look like in production although the actual box for the Nendoroid has yet to be shown.
Nevertheless, we have oodles of pictures to view from Mikatan’s blog including what appears to be some interesting additional items that would make this Nendoroid even more worthwhile to collect. It also makes me think that the box that Nendoroid will be packaged in will be bigger than usual.
This is what she’s supposed to look like in production. What’s interesting to note is that the base is the black and white tile base that has been signature to the BRS franchise. Another interesting thing is that the stand for this Nendoroid looks like the stands you would commonly see in figmas. Continue Reading

Could this be a production version of Ciel Phantomhive from Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji)? Here we see Sebastian Michaelis, the demon butler, with a serving cloth and a tea set. So it would appear that Ciel comes with additional parts for Sebastian! I would definitely want to get this.
This and the other photos in this post were from Mikatan’s post about some minor event where some GSC merchandise were out on display. There also appeared to be production versions of the female EVA pilots as well as these two:

Dropped by Mikatan’s blog and the figma blog to see if there was anything new from their end and boy was I happy with what I saw.
Mark (Coffeebugg) and I had ordered the Queen’s Blade PSP game that had a figma exclusive included with the game. All this time, all that was shown were images of the master model and no image of box contents and stuff. The figma blog showed a couple of actual merchandise shots of the box containing the game and the exclusive figma.
The box reminds me of the Saber Lily PSP game box with the exclusive figma that came with it.
I was trying to figure out how Max Factory was going to pull off the torn outfit look for this figma and with this, it looks like the decided to toss in an extra torso to do that. But a closer inspection of the extra torso shows that it seems to be fixed in a certain position. I’m actually not too fond of that discovery. Aside from the melee weapons that we’ve seen in the earlier master model shots, this figma comes with two extra faces. And that’s it.
But I still wanted this because it’s a nice figma design. The detail is awesome.
And torn panties. Yes. Continue Reading

Vocaloid Puchi Nendoroids
I had written about GSC releasing Vocaloid Puchi Nendoroids many moons ago. Visited Mikatan’s blog and lo and behold, they seem to have added two new items to the set of puchi Nendoroids. there’s a yellow twintail and a white-haired chick. I’m not that well-versed on Vocaloids but they are definitely nice additions to the set. Can’t wait for their release so that I can order myself a set.
New Death Note Nendoroids or additional puchi Nendoroids?
Don’t see any puchi Nendoroids beside it so I’m not sure if they’re the regular-sized Nendoroids or the puchi-sized ones. If they’re the puchi-sized ones, then they might be bonus Nendoroids for the upcoming Death Note Puchi Nendoroid set.
Mikatan’s blog featured other upcoming full-size Nendoroids including the entire cast of K-On which is something I’m sooo looking forward to most especially Mio.

Gotta catch 'em all!
I got so excited when I saw this picture of the upcoming Vocaloid Puchi Nendoroids from Goodsmile in Mikatan’s blog. It has five Vocaloids featured in the set, including the twins, and Miku Hatsune. Normally the first five are the original costume and then there’s either an alternate pose or an alternate costume for the other five in the box. I’m assuming they have yet to show the second set in the collection, plus the usual extra mystery Nendoroid. I will definitely buy this set, even if I have to purchase all 11 myself!

It definitely has a different version of the face. Will it be a re-release? Or a convention exclusive? Picture was taken from Mikatan’s blog. If you can understand Japanese and point out what this is all about, I’d very much appreciate it. The eyes have got that World Is Mine Miku look to it.

Saw this nice bit of news from Mikatan’s blog. It’s an upcoming Miku Hatsune figurine to be released by GSC at an undisclosed date. It’s labelled as “World Is Mine” Miku Hatsune. She’s got that loli look going.
