Oooh!! Is that what I think it is?
I’ve been waiting for them to be finished!!

Takamatsu from Phat Company is carrying a little suitcase, and based on the image I can just make out on it, this blog is going to be dedicated to the two and a half million IDOLM@STER producers out there!
Phat! Company’s:
Minicchu IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls 01!

Based on the social game released by Mobage, ‘IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls’ comes a set of cute chibi figures based on illustrations by Kengou Yakumo – the first in a new series of figures by Phat Company called the ‘Minicchu’ series. Put together your very own miniature idol unit with your favorite idols!

They’re so cute!!

Phat Company has released something absolutely incredible this time around! I’ll definitely be buying a set for myself, there is no way I could resist these!

They’re so lovely I almost feel like just ending this blog now and playing with the prototypes all day long… another hard day at work! :P
This is how the look from the back!

You can easily make out who is who just by looking at the hairstyles!

There are a total of eight to collect, including one secret figure!

I think many will be trying to guess who the secret character is, but there are many idols in the game that it’s actually quite difficult to guess!
Let’s take a closer look at the idols!

First up, Kirari Moroboshi!

Each of the idols in IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls has a certain type – either cute, cool or passion. Both the Minicchu figures here as well as the Nendoroid Petites coming from GSC have a nice balance of the different types! Kirari here is a ‘passion’ type!

Each of the idols also comes in a six different rarities in the game – there is ‘Normal’, ‘Normal+’, ‘Rare’, ‘Rare+’, ‘S-Rare’ and ‘S-Rare+’. The characters have different outfits depending on which rarity you have!

This series makes use of outfits from the ‘Normal’ and ‘Rare’ cards!
There are two more passion types:
Natalia and Nina Ichihara!

Natalia is an idol from Brazil known for her tanned skin and Nina Ichihara is a nine year old idol who wears cute animal outfits – here she is wearing the fluffy sheep outfit from the ‘Rare’ card. I always thought the card was cute, but she looks even cuter in figure form!
Next up, the cute-types:
Anzu Futaba and Kanako Mimura!

Anzu-chan became a meme in the Japanese Internet as ‘AnzuChang’, which was actually how I first found out about the game! Even though the figure is so tiny, you can still easily make out the writing on her shirt which reads ‘If you work, you lose’ – it really gets her lazy personality across to everyone! Her long twintails are also lovely!!

Kanako-san is based on the ‘Normal’ card which features an illustration that shows off her great body! Just as with the illustration, you can see her arms are holding up her very impressive bust! Wonderful!!

Shuu-chan from the planning team really loves Kanako, and is trying to make all of his front members Kanako in the game! :P
Finally, the cool-types:
Kaede Takagaki and Rin Shibuya!

Kaede has lovely hair that curls in at the ends as well as two different colored eyes – the figure is based on the ‘Rare’ card! The unique color of her hair was adjusted multiple times with lots of input from the publishers to ensure it came out perfectly! The sculpting also manages to keep the wonderfully mysterious aura about her!

The prototypes all came in this lovely looking case! Opening it up looked so colorful and cute that I had to take a picture! I feel like I should make my own transparent case to carry around my favorite figures too! (*´∀`*)

Anyway, that’s all for today!
