Last week Friday on WonHobby News Watch…


We introduced these Nendoroids!! Σ(゚∀゚ )

They were also originally on display at the Yokohama area in June for the Tales of Festival 2012! At that time they were unpainted, but now they are fully painted for everyone to enjoy!

But today we’ll be taking a closer look at them, so let’s get started!

Nendoroid Petite: Tales Series!

From the ever-popular ‘Tales’ series of games comes a set of Nendoroid Petites of a number of the series’ heroes and heroines!

They will be sold as singles or in a box of 8! 

A single will cost ¥500 and a box will cost ¥4000! Definitely a little easier on the wallet than the previous boxes of 12.


This is how they look from the back!

Each of them is about 65mm tall, which is a great size to have on display right beside you on your desk!

I’m more and more impressed with the amount of detail on Nendoroid petites with each and every release – the lines on Jude’s outfit are just a tiny bit bigger than 1mm in some places!


From Tales of Vesperia:

Yuri Lowell and Estelle!

Yuri’s long hair and Estelle’s puffy skirt have both come out looking lovely! The gradient on the hair and coloring of the eyes have also clearly had a lot of work put into them!

From Tales of Graces:

Asbel Lhant & Sophie!

Whilst it’s not definite yet, Sophie’s left elbow might be fitted with a joint allowing you to pose her with her palm outwards for a little extra posability! Asbel also looks great, ready to draw his sword

From ‘Tales of Xillia’:

Jude Mathis and Milla Maxwell! 

From a manufacturing point of view I think these two till be the most difficult to make. The color work on Milla in particular looks like it’ll be quite a mission. Xilla also has a sequel coming up for release in Japan this November!


The two most popular characters!

These two were voted the most popular in a recent poll! Displayed like this it seems like they’re ready to draw their swords and fight each other! It’s quite interesting to be able to display characters across games like this!


Nendoroid Petite: Tales Series!

They’ll be up for preorder tomorrow!!

If you have any preorder or sales queries, be sure to contact our partner shops!

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