The GSC newcomer’s blog that started back in June!
I’m not sure how many of you ever look a look, as it was only ever in Japanese, but this blog was actually started with the eventual goal of creating more fun ways to display figures!
They looked at a number of different options including special figure display cases and shelves, but all of those ended up getting… well, shelved.
However, the next set of ideas were given the go, originally based on this lovely illustration!
A very detailed illustration!
It might be quite a simple illustration, but it certainly gets the point across quite nicely! The scribbles on the left are apparently supposed to be showing magnets in use which are somehow making the Nendoroid float up in the air… needless to say there were a couple of ideas that were scrapped. :P
These are the final creations from the above illustration!
Nendoroid More: Clip Stand &
Nendoroid More: Suction Stand!
These new stands bring Nendoroid fans a brand new way of displaying their favorite characters! Display your Nendoroids in places you never even considered using before!
Each stand comes with joints for both Nendoroids and Nendoroid Petites, so you can display any of your favorite characters from either series!
White, Pink and Mint!
I was only able to get hold of the white prototype, but I did get a few seperate parts to take a look at the colors as well.
The colors are pastel pink and mint, but they don’t stand out too much which is perfect to make sure that not too much is taken away from teh figure! I personally hope to see an orange and a transparent version at some stage!
Let’s try out the suction stand!
I simply connected the Nendoroid to the stand, and then stuck the suction cup onto the glass window! One of the biggest problems for figure collectors is a lack of space , and this helps a bit by letting you display some Nendoroids in all-new places!
This is how it looks from the side!
You can move the arm around to display her at whatever angle you like! The connector onto Cirno is yellow on this prototype version, but it will match the rest of the stand on the final version.
I tried to create a flying pose!
Characters with wings will really be able to be posed in mid-air now!
Of course you could always pose her in a flying pose with the normal stand, but to have her displayed high up like this gives it a whole new kind of appeal! It’s also a really fun way to display her!
Cirno really seems to be enjoying herself too. :P
Display your Nendoroids up high!
Although, I’d be too scared that they might fall, so I don’t want to put them too high up… if you really want to be safe, you could even just use them like this:
Stuck onto the desk!
This is actually an amazingly stable way of displaying Nendos!
It also allows you to change the pose around easily, and without taking up more space! ヽ(ﾟ∀ﾟ)ﾉ
It’s sometimes quite frustrating to get the characters into the right pose and then attach the stand, but I think this makes it considerably easier, plus the suction cup can be moved around as many times as you like, so when you get bored of having a Nendo in one place for too long, you can easily move it some place else!
Moving on, let’s try the clip stand!
Now Cirno is flying off from the side of my laptop! The clip area on the stand is made from a special material to ensure it won’t leave and marks or scratches on whatever you want to attach it to!
Keep Nendos with you wherever you go!
Take out your PC at a lovely café and then quick and easily clip a Nendo onto the side! Even while you’re in a boring meeting, you can keep a Nendoroid right in front of you to keep you happy!
This is how the clip looks from above!
The arm itself is very similar to the suction version, so you can also move it around into the angle you want. The way I’ve used it here also allows for a mid-air pose, showing just how much space you can save!
The new way to display your Nendoroids:
Nendoroid More: Clip Stand &
Nendoroid More: Suction Stand
They are currently available for preorder!
Get in touch with our partner shops if you have any preorder or sales queries!
And finally, a quick word from the team leader! (`･ω･´)
|Hello everyone! My name is Kamatani, a newcomer to the manufacturing team here at GSC! Today the product we’ve been working on for the last few months has been introduced to everyone here on Mikatan Blog!
The project was started in May this year, and went on as follows:
June: Start of the ‘Newcomer’s Blog’.
We’ve been determined to get through all the problems that came with the design, and we finally feel happy to announce that the two new ways to display Nendoroids will be known as…
Nendoroid More: Clip Stands & Nendoroid More: Suction Stands!
They are both great and fun new ways to display your favorite figures. The ‘More’ in Nendoroid More is to show that there is even MORE fun to be had when displaying your figures! It’s a first for GSC to release a product like this, but I’d really recommend you try it for yourself!
Personally I can’t wait to have a side of my wall, and the area around my PC covered in Nendoroids and Nendoroid Petites! Both the stands will only set you back ¥500, so be sure to give them a try!!
The Newcomer’s blog will be continuing on as well for now, so please continue to keep us company there too!
The Newcomer’s blog is still going on now, so do check it out if you have the time – it is unfortunately only in Japanese, however.

But anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛
