Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I recently discovered that my birth date is just one day apart from the real person behind today’s Nendoroid! Today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Nendoroid May’n! ♡
|In commemoration of the upcoming ‘May’n Road to 10th Anniversary Japan & World Tour 2014-2015 “dots and lines”‘ comes a Nendoroid of May’n herself! Her well-known hairstyle and trademark short pants have all been converted into Nendoroid size as accurately as possible for fans to enjoy!
Her microphone is included together with special hand parts based off actual poses from her live performances, allowing you to pose her ready to perform on stage! A hand towel from her live performances is also included for her to hold! On the other hand, she also comes with a delicious taiyaki allowing you to pose her as the (self-proclaimed) Goodwill Ambassador for Taiyaki! Simply choose between the serious or the more playful May’n whenever you like!
The 4th Nendoroid based on a popular music artist! I can’t wait to see the real May’n on stage again! Before we take a look at the Nendoroid itself… I first want to take a look at the packaging!
The overall design is much more stylish compared to most Nendoroids… definitely nicely suited to May’n! ☆
The different pattern on the sides makes it rather cute! ♥
Plus the inner cardboard is a photo mosaic from May’n’s past live concerts!
The brighter photos even spell out ‘May’n’! Seeing these kind of mosaics always makes me want to take a nice close look at each of the photos! ﾍ(ﾟ∀ﾟ*)ﾉ
But for now, let me focus on the Nendoroid itself! Her microphone is included to pose her singing! ♫
The microphone is a ‘Skull Mike’ which May’n is well known for using! (ﾉ｀・∀・)ﾉ
You can obviously attach and remove the mike whenever you like, or even make her hold it upside down like so!
Easily pose May’n performing live for her audience… or just for you! ♡ A small towel is also included, allowing you to display her whirling it through the air!
Usually at concerts it’s the fans that wave the towel around, but May’n enjoys taking part in the fun too! Just look at that smile! ヽ(ｏ´∀｀ｏ)ﾉ
Even the logo on the towel has been faithfully recreated!
Speaking of faithful… the Nendoroid’s hairstyle looks lovely!
It captures May’n’s characteristic hair beautifully!
Even the lighter streaks of hair have been included! (｀・ω・´)
Oh yes! Her hat is also completely removable, and can even be angled in different ways for interesting poses! ♫
Here I’ve posed it at a downward angle covering up her eyes… it adds an extra touch of cool to her appearance! It’s amazing how much the feeling of a figure can change with just a slight switch of parts, or simply moving a hat like this!
As some of you may have already noticed, she also comes with two different expressions to enjoy! ♡
(・∀・) “May’n certainly is amazing during her concerts, but the figure allows for a different side of May’n too!”
We’re joined by Nendoroid May’n’s planner, Kyojin!
(・∀・) “May’n loves taiyaki so much that she named herself the ‘Goodwill Ambassador for Taiyaki’… so we just had to include some taiyaki parts!”
Ooh! （*´▽｀*） I love little parts like this! ♡
Somehow she seems to have a much cuter personality while holding onto the taiyaki…! (*´Д`)♥
< Nendoroid May’n offering me a taiyaki >
< …I would never say no! Nomnom!! >
(・∀・) “Her outfit is carefully detailed, with close attention given to the short pants and accessories. Take a nice close look!”
May’n’s unique style and personality are packed into cute Nendoroid size!
(・∀・) “Not only did we have the honor of making her Nendoroid, she also performed live for us at WonFes!”
Even with the terrible weather, she warmed everything up with an amazing performance for everyone! (*´∀｀*)
I kind of forgot I was supposed to be working and danced around with everyone else…
(・∀・) “I know how you feel! I was holding back the urge to run out and join all the fans… But anyway, back to the Nendoroid! Nendoroid May’n is currently on sale at all the official locations of the current ‘dots and lines’ tour!
More details: May’n Official Site
Once you’ve enjoyed yourself at the concert, grab a May’n to take home too!
She is on sale at all concert locations for the May’n Road to 10th Anniversary Japan & World Tour 2014-2015: ‘dots and lines’. (｀・ω・´)
