…why does the web team have it!?

This is Omura’s desk from the web team… I can’t believe he got hold of the figure before me!! I don’t care if my seat has been moved further away… you’re not allowed to steal figures away from me!

I’ll take it back to my desk, alongside with that Famitsu magazine beside it!


Today we’ll be looking at this much anticipated figure!
From Puella Magi Madoka Magica:

Nendoroid Sayaka Miki!

From the popular anime series “Puella Magi Madoka Magica” comes another Nendoroid, this time of the energetic and strong-willed Sayaka Miki! She comes with three expressions, including a standard smiling face, an upset face and a pained expression for combat scenes.


This is how the packaging looks!

Obviously the figure itself is the main concern for most figure fans, but I have to say that in my opinion those swords are absolutely incredible! Looking back on the figure though, I love the gold lines painted all over her outfit – they really contrast the blue and white outfit very nicely. Overall I’d say she came out very nicely!


This is how she looks from the back!

The stand connects behind her cape, fitting into her back. At first I was a bit worried that it would get in the way of some poses, but it didn’t bother me at all in the end! It also connects very firmly into her back, so you won’t have any stress issue on the stand either.


Her upset expression and sword!

This pose also makes use of the bent arm part for a very epic looking pose – ready for battle! There are eight swords included with the figure, but only two of them can be held like this. The handle on the two that can be held has a little protrusion on the handle which can be pushed into her hands just like this.


The pained face is so cute!!

I feel bad for her, but at the same time I can’t help but think she looks adorable!! The single closed eye, grinning expression and indented eyebrows all look so good together as an expression! You have to see this expression in person to really appreciate it fully!


The swords can be placed on the base!

A special stand for holding all eight of the swords is included! It creates more of a scene for you to display her in!


Displayed with Madoka!

Although you probably didn’t notice just by glancing at the photo, I’ve actually also placed Sayaka’s cape on Madoka’s shoulders! You can remove it entirely, or instead try it on other Nendoroids instead!


Now she’s with Kyouko!

Actually, it’s a production sample!

Kyouko will be released in May – look forward to her!

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

There are only 19 days left until GSC turns 11 years old!
Today we’ll be taking a look at yet another Nendoroid of the past!


Released in February 2010:
Nendoroid Nanoha Takamachi : The MOVIE 1st Ver.!

She was Nendoroid number 95! Even with the current level of Nendoroids, I’m still amazed at the paint work on Nanoha’s barrier jacket!


Her intelligent device, Raising Heart!

The device was included in two different forms – Device Mode as well as Canon Mode! Yuno-kun was also included with posable legs, plus those adorable wings on her feet were included as clear parts. A great addition to the Nendoroid world to say the least!

She also made me wonder exactly when it was that Nendoroids started coming with so many extra parts… I’ll be taking a look at that question in more detail in the future!
