Welcome to the (supposed) bi-weekly feature, Nendoroid News! Weekly, I get newsletters from the official Nendoroid store, Good Smile Company. It seems there’s not really a news blog for strictly Nendoroid updates other than upcoming figures or other scaled goods. This will (try) to be updated every other Tuesday so please look out for it.
Please note that this segment will focus on Nendoroids, whether petite, regular, plus, or co-ode, if it has Nendoroid that prefixes it, that means it’s going to be posted here (unless there’s just not enough news to cover it).
Here comes another “Kantai Collection” nendoroid! This time, it’s Katori! Right now, she’s available for preorder right now for ¥4,500. Orders for her should placed in from September 25, 2015 at 12:00 JST until October 21, 2015 at 21:00 JST.
She won’t be released until February 2016.
Here are some of the exclusive Good Smile Company bonuses one would get if one were to preorder her on the official site:
- Special design product sleeve
- Special nendoroid base
It seems you can remove her canons and pose her into many different positions! Imagine the fun and serious poses you can do with Katori!
Be sure to preorder as soon as you can!
If you missed him the first time, well, have no worries! Aoba Seragaki & Ren from DRAMAtical Murder is being re-released!
Be sure to preorder him right now for ¥4,200. The orders will be open from September 25, 2015 at 12:00 JST until October 14, 2015 at 21:00 JST.
He won’t be released (again) until February 2016.
It seems that he’s not going to come with any preorder bonsues, but then again, he didn’t come with any before.
If you’re on the fence about preodering this figure, have no worries! I have written a review of the nendoroid when he was released the first time. Feel free to check it out here!
Upcoming Preorder Deadlines!
The Nendoroid of Rockman from, well, Rockman is ending his preordering on September 30, 2015 at 21:00 JST.
Just know that he’s being released on January 2016!
If you go here to preorder him, you’ll be able to get him for ¥4,800! That’s pretty cheap for a main video game character compared to other characters who are just as iconic and nostalgic as Rockman…
Either way, you’ll be able to get this as a preorder bonus:
- Death effect plate
And that’s it? But it looks like you’ll still get plenty of faceplates that you can use to pose him with and maybe recreate some iconic fights he’s had in the games! I don’t remember the games but I remember the Super Nintendo games a lot more than the earlier ones.
Which Rockman game did you enjoy the best? Please leave a comment below!
And yet another iconic and nostalgic character from many people’s childhoods: Kirby! Kirby’s reservation period is ending on September 30, 2015 at 21:00 JST!
He will also release on January 2016.
You can preorder him right now for ¥4,500! And here’s a bonus
- Maxim Tomato
Well, to be fair, it looks like he’s going to come with his iconic smile, but his filled up body! Not only that, he’ll come with the inhaling ability as well as a couple of accessories from his various games that he used in the past and even current in the Super Smash Brothers.
I remember when I first played Kirby when I was little; my favorite has to be Kirby’s Dreamland 3! What’s your favorite Kirby game? Please feel free to post!
Sadly, even though Aoba is getting a re-release, it looks like Koujaku is closing his reservations soon on September 30, 2015 at 21:00 JST.
He’s going to be released on January 2016! So if you really want to get him (to go with your Aoba), please preorder him for ¥4,800!
Sadly, it doesn’t seem he’s going to get any extra preorder bonuses just like Aoba but that’s okay – his expressions and accessories should more than make up for it!
Here’s this week’s poll from the Good Smile Company:
If you own figures from online or browser games, do you play the game they come from?
Well, I’m not sure if this counts but I own some figures from Love Live! and I don’t play with the game as much as I used to. I’ve been really busy with school and work (but I’m still very passionate about this blog – I’m just busy).
But if Love Live! doesn’t count, sadly, I don’t own any figures from any online games or browser games.
How about you? Do you still play the games your favorite figures are from? Do you even have any? It’s okay if you don’t! Be sure to vote here and comment on this blog to elaborate on your choice!
