The Heavy Bramble is taking care of Tsukki’s desk while he is gone, but it seems it can’t stop me from using it…. I’m having the Heavy Bramble protect today’s figure set!

The Nendoroid Petite B.G.M Festival Set Vol.0!

The B.G.M Festival Vol.0 is an music event that was held on the 16th April 2011, which featured music from a variety of different games – this set of five Nendoroid Petites are all from characters from the various games that the event was based on!

It’s a collaboration product between five game makers!

It’s not often you see something like that! A collection of all the heroines from five great games all in one set! We would never have got this if it wasn’t for the B.G.M (Bishoujo Game Music) Festival!


This is how the packaging looks!

Ooh! Seeing them all together like this really is beautiful! So many colors! The stands are each numbered as well, so if you take a look at the included instruction booklet you’ll know which stand is meant for which character.

Right: From Alicesoft: Uesugi Kenshin from Sengoku Rance’

Look at the detailed paint work!

I honestly get the feeling that *too* much work was put into these figures! Particullarly parts like Otohime’s checkered clothes – that must have been such a mission to paint so finely… and how about the little triangles on her ribbon! They’re minute!


Left:  Uesugi Kenshin’s helmet can be removed!
From minori: Miyako Miyamura from ‘ef – a fairy tale of the two’!

When you see two lined up together like this one thing you notice is that…

The eyes are each painted differently!

Each game maker has their own specific style of drawing the characters eyes – and that is even visible on the Nendoroid Petites!


Left: From OVERDRIVE: Kirari Shiino from ‘Kira Kira’!
Right: From NAVEL: Asuka Watarai from ‘Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai’!

Kirari’s guitar is removable!

You can give it to other characters if you like! Plus the guitar strap can even move – I wonder how much of a challenge all this was for the production team. ^^;


Exchange heads with other Nendos!

Saber and Kenshin are exchanging armor for the day! It creates a strange mix of western and eastern tastes!


You can also of course exchange expressions!

One of the next things about Nendo Petites is the way you can exchange all these things – giving other expressions to your favorite characters can be so much fun! It does fairly cause them to look a bit odd – but that’s half the fun!


Aren’t they cute!!?

You can even bring in some of the older Nendo Petite expressions to exchange with! (Some characters expressions are made differently and might not be exchangeable though.)

Whether you’ve noticed or not it’s already Friday! I hope everyone has had a good week!

It feels like just the other day that I said ‘Happy New Year’ and yet we’re so fast approaching the middle of the year already… I hope everyone is making good use of their time! Also completely unrelated, but I just started playing Final Fantasy 3 – it’s really fun! I wish I had played it while I was younger!

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