2013 has arrived!


Happy New Year!!

A quick picture of the first morning meeting of GSC and Max Factory! It’s time to get back to work for the New Year, especially with Wonder Festival coming up in just one month!

We’re starting 2013 off in full throttle, and the blog is also ready to bring some lovely figures and event information to everyone! I hope we’ll be able to keep up with everyone’s expectations this year and I hope everyone will enjoy the blog once again this year!

The first review for 2013 will be these twins!
Nendoroid Kagamine Rin: Append

The slightly more mature looking ‘Append’ version of Kagamine Rin is joining the Nendoroids! She comes with three different expressions including a cheerful smiling face, a winking face to display her happily singing along to some songs and even a pleading expression allowing you to pose her trying to get something from Len!

Nendoroid Kagamine Len: Append

The slightly more modern looking ‘Append’ version of Kagamine Len is joining the Nendoroids! He comes with three different expressions including a cheerful smiling face, a winking face to display him happily singing along to some songs and even a serious expression to show off his cooler side!

They’ll both be available at the same time!! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ

They won’t be sold as a set, but you can grab them both at the same time to display the twins together! There is even a special part included to pose them together, which I’ll show at the end of the blog!

This is how they look from the back!

The sculpting is so detailed and the paintwork is very intricate! You can see a lot of work has gone into these two!!

Even replaceable parts like the arms and legs have such amazing gradient paintwork – it’s a lot of hard work to put so much detail on such small parts! The speakers on their feet are also so tiny… I imagine once these get into mass production they are going to need to go through a huge number of different processes to be made…

But the detail definitely doesn’t go to waste – they are the perfect Nendoroid renditions of the original Append illustrations!
Pointing forward with confidence!

This pose and angle really shows off Len’s handsome side! This face actually gives him a bit of a mischievous look, but I get the feeling it’ll be quite popular with the girls!

He also comes with a bent left arm and leg to create this pose!
Rin’s cute begging expression!

This face is just unfair! It’s too much for me to handle this early in the year! If Rin asked me to do something with this expression I would never be able to refuse – she’s just too adorable!

This pose also makes use of two bent arms and a bent left leg!
Holding hands while winking!

They are winking with alternate eyes to create a symmetrical pose – perfect for twins! They also each come with a respective arm to hold out to the side!
A background board is also included!

I’m always worried about too much mess behind my photos when I’m taking pictures of figures, so I really like these background boards! They are made to look like the background of the Append packaging, and they can be placed in the stands to create a nice backdrop. (You can also remove them!)

There is a gap for the arm to come out, so it won’t cause any problems while posing. The boards are still being altered and are not final at the moment, so they might still change a little for the final release – but it is definitely a part that I’m looking forward to. Both Rin and Len come with their own background!
A double arm to display them together!

A special arm that allows you to display them both on a single stand is also included! Isn’t it lovely! Yuri-chan came up with the excellent idea!
The arm is separated into two at the end, and easily connects into both of their backs!

It creates such a unique way to display them! It’s always nice to display characters from the same series together like this!

In this case I’ve tried to recreate the image illustration which featured them holding hands while back-to-back. The way they seem to be floating up in the air also suits the Vocaloid series very nicely!
