Lots of products and prototypes to check…!
There is one prototype that I can’t wait to show everyone, it has come out so cute! I’ll be able to show everyone soon!!
Today it’s time for a much-needed prototype review!
Good Smile is moving offices on the 29th June, but I’ll be getting through as many reviews before then as possible! I’ve already contacted the planning team to ask to keep the prototypes until the move!
So let’s get started today with…
Nendoroid Petite :
THE IDOLM@STER2 Stage 02!
From the popular idol simulation game, THE IDOL@STER2 comes another set of cute figures to join the first set! This time along the set includes Miki Hoshii, Iori Minase, Yukiho Hagiwara, Azusa Miura, Ami Futami and Hibiki Ganaha all in their stage outfits!
A total of 7 to collect including one secret character!
Each single figure will cost 500JPY, but just like the first set there will also be a larger box containing 8 figures.
Yukiho Hagiwara & Miki Hoshii!
The outfits are the same as Stage 01 -the outfit is called ‘Pink Diamond’ in the game! Miki is showing off her lovely body and hips!
Azusa Miura & Iori Minase!
The slightly older idols of IDOLM@STER 2! I personally think Azusa looks much better with her hair like this! It’s so cute!
Hibiki Ganaha & Ami Futami!
Ami’s twin sister was in Stage 01, so now you can display the two of them together! The diamonds along Hibiki’s pants are less than a millimeter in size – as always the Nendoroid Petites are going to cause a lot of trouble for the manufacturing team!
The Stage 2 figures are looking at their predecessors…
Nendoroid Petite : THE IDOLM@STER2 – Stage 01 will be on sale from the 26th June! (･∀･)ﾉ
This is one of the boxes filled with 8 smaller boxes – you don’t know which character you will get in the smaller boxes until you open them!
I got the secret character first again!!
But I think most of you can figure out who it is even from the back! (`･ω･´)
The complete Stage 01 set!
Wow! They came out wonderfully – even the small small gold areas on the outfits have been painted perfectly! Wonderful!
You can hardly tell the difference between the prototypes and the product versions!! (((ﾟДﾟ)))
Of course you can tell which ones are the prototypes because they all have larger bases at the moment. But seeing all the idols together like this is really a lovely sight!
Nendoroid Petite :
THE IDOLM@STER2 Stage 02!
They’ll be up on the GSC site from Monday!
Get in contact with our partner shops if you have any sales or preorder inquiries!
Now time for some news!
“Berserk : Golden Age Arc II -The Battle for Doldrey” is in cinemas from the 23rd June!
In other words it starts tomorrow! Akiyama-san managed to use his charms to get hold of one of the gorgeous pamphlets that will be on sale at cinemas early – you can see Yukipo is very interested in it! It has a beautiful cover with a golden foil logo! I think displaying this beside the figmas would look wonderful!
Even more news!
The Black Rock Shooter Blu-ray &
DVD BOX also goes on sale tomorrow!
The photo above is of the Black Rock Shooter DVD BOX (Limited First Edition). I found it over at Otanaka’s desk and quickly stole it before he could stop me!
The packaging features illustrations by huke!
This is the contents of the box!
Obviously the DVDs with the anime are all included, but along with them you’ll also get a load of extras including a booklet with interviews and character designs, the original soundtrack of the series and a special video collection disk! A lovely set of goodies for any fan – not to mention that it also comes with…
figma Insane Black Rock Shooter!
This is just a picture of the inner packaging, but the actual version does come in it’s own box!
Posed and ready to fight!
I’m always impressed with the figmas of the BRS series! (And I’m not just saying that to advertise, they are really amazing!) They stick into really nice poses so easily and it’s so much fun to pose them. I’m certain she’ll look great displayed with the normal Black Rock Shooter figma, but note that she is only included with…
The Black Rock Shooter Blu-ray BOX (Complete Limited Edition Version) or The Black Rock Shooter DVD BOX (Complete Limited Edition Version)!
You’ll only find her with these sets, so make sure you don’t buy the wrong version if you want her!
The boxsets are on sale tomorrow!
But that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again next week!
I’ll be Kyuushuu tomorrow with the sales team that are touring Japan – if you see me feel free to come have a chat! (・∀・)ノ゛
