Good Smile is 10 years old!

Thanks to all your support over the years we’ve managed to grow more and more!

In May we will be turning 11, so to celebrate the end of our 10th year we will be running a special project!


Rerelease & New Product Requests!

We’ll be listening to which products you want to see go on resale, and which characters you want to see figures of in the future! Unfortunately we can’t guarantee that all the most voted products will be put on resale or made into products, but there is always a possibility – so feel free to add your opinion!


These buttons are the resale buttons!

They are divided into three categories – Nendoroid, figma and scale figures. All the products released up until 2012/04/10 (with the exception of Cheerful JAPAN! and limited edition products) will be available for you to vote on.

For example, just select the ‘Nendoroid Series Resale Button’, and then all the Nendoroids will pop up for you to select which one you want.

/  \    /\
/  し (>)  (<)\
| ∪    (__人__)  J | ________
\  u   `⌒´   / | |          |
ノ           \ | |          |

You can select up to five products that you want to see rereleased!

Of course you can also select beneath five if there are only one or two figures you want to go on resale. You can only vote once though, so be careful with your vote!

Once you’ve made your selection, head to the bottom of the page and press the ‘Select These Products’ button. (上記内容で送信する)


Then the top 20 products will be displayed!

These results will be updated in real time, so those who have voted or those that just want to see the results can simply click the ‘See Results without Voting’ button (回答せずに結果を見る), where you’ll be able to take a look at the up to date results.


The button on the top right is the ‘New Product Request’ button! (商品化希望アンケート)

You need to fill in:
‘Series Name’ (作品名) : ‘Character Name’ (キャラクター名) : ‘Product Genre’ (ジャンル).
For example…

Inu x Boku SS : Ririchiyo Shirakiin : Nendoroid
Fate/Zero : Ryuunosuke Uryuu : figma
KAITO : KAITO : Scale Figure
Good Smile Udon : Gumako : Plushie

Just input your own requests like the examples above!
Please be sure to input everything in correctly!

The deadline is the 1st May at 12:00 PM (JST)!

Please send in all your requests!!

Finally I’d like to reiterate that there is no guarantee we can put the top figures on resale or make figures out of the most requested new products.

There are a number of reasons that could cause this, so I’m just pointing it out ahead of time… of course we will do whatever we can to get the most popular products back into production, so we look forward to seeing what you request!

– 10 Years of Good Smile Company : Nendoroids of the Past! –

There are only 21 days left until Good Smile turns 11, and so today I’m going to take a look at a very old Nendoroid!


Released in February 2008:

Nendoroid Joy Max!

At WonFes 2008, Nitroplus’ public relations mascot got the Nendoroid treatment!! Looking back on it now I can still hardly believe it… It was also the first Nendoroid to ever have realistic hair… an interesting challenge for the production team. :P


This is how the packaging looked!

So much more simple when compared to the packaging of today’s Nendoroids… she came with three optional parts – a microphone, comb and fluffy pink accessory!

She cost 3000JPY back then… at the moment you get so much more for the same price. ^^;

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