Whoa! Just kidding! Tsukki wasn’t really replaced, he is just out on a business trip to China again! But there is something that frog is holding that looks very interesting…!

The Nendo everyone is waiting for is coming tomorrow!

The first in the Madoka Magica Nendoroid Series:
Nendoroid Madoka Kaname!

Madoka Magica was hugely popular at this year’s Comiket, and from that series comes a Nendoroid of the kindhearted Madoka Kaname! Sorry for the wait everyone – I know you’ve been waiting for her!

She should be in stores from tomorrow!

Of course, I’ll be doing a quick sample review right now! Whee!

Let’s start with a look at the optional parts!

First is her upset face and arrow of light!

This expression is perfect for Madoka when she is fighting – even upset she still looks adorable though! This pose also makes use of the bent leg parts and stand to make her look posed in mid-air!

The pink parts on the arrow and bow use clear plastic!
She looks just as wonderful as she did in the series!

Takanon is very proud of his work on QB!
He can also be posed dangling from Madoka’s arm!

The default pose is the sitting QB, but you just switch the head and tail to another body and then he can be posed like this!

And my best thing about QB are his back paws!!
The way they are spread apart makes him look just like a little animal! It’s so cute!


The unexpected scribble expression!

This expression is of course based on the little drawing Madoka did of herself! :P These kind of fun parts are one of the best things about Nendoroids! I also mentioned it before, but that illustration was actually drawn by Madoka’s voice actress, Aoi Yuuki! Mami-san’s expression is also super cute! xD


Time to play with other expressions!

It just has to be done now – it also makes sure for everyone that she has good compatibility with other Nendoroid expressions! It’s so fun to see how characters look with the expressions of others!!

First up is the famous ‘ヽ(*゚д゚)ノ‘ Face!

Madoka petting Kyubey with this face… she looks like a little kindergarten girl now. :P


Madoka with a
catlike glance and :3!

Seen QB seemed like a little animal, this makes Madoka seem cat-like as well! I must say, if I were to ever see Madoka make this expression in the series I’d be VERY surprised. :P You can also see QB rolling around on the ground next to her! Awww, he is so cute!


This is how the packaging looks! Nendoroid #174!
(Wow… we’re already on #174!?)

The first Madoka Magica Nendoroid:
