New prototypes have arrived!! ヽ(ﾟ∀ﾟ)ﾉ
Phew! They arrived just in time!!
It’s fairly standard for GSC to make two sets of prototypes – however once the first set has been painted within GSC, the painting of the second set is normally outsourced to another company, to be painted based on the first set.
Today’s prototypes have literally just come back from that other company in time! If it had come back one day later I wouldn’t have had the time to create this post!!
The set of figures I’m talking about that caused all this… are none other than these lovely idols! (`・ω・´)
Nendoroid Petite: Love Live!
|The characters from the popular anime series ‘Love Live!’ are joining the cute Nendoroid Petite trading figure series! The set includes Honoka Kousaka, the central member of the ‘µ’s’ school idol group, as well as two of the other members, Umi Sonoda and Kotori Minami!
Each of the characters comes in both their Otonokizaka Academy uniform as well as their ‘µ’s’ stage outfits, for a total of six different variations. Plus there is also one secret character to look out for! Collect and display them all to recreate the school idol project right by your side!
The original three members of ‘µ’s’ (‘Muse’) in both their uniforms and stage outfits!! (*ﾟ∀ﾟ)=3
You get to enjoy both the school-side and the stage-side of the series all in a single set of Nendo Petites! Each figure will cost just ¥600, with a total of seven figures to collect including one secret character! They’ll come in ‘blind boxes’, so you won’t know which character is in which box until it’s been opened!
As usual, you can choose to preorder a large box of eight figures, or instead buy them one-by-one at stores!
This is how the look from the back!
Take a close look at the two different variations of each character! The hair parts of the uniform version and the stage version are different!
It’s easiest to see on Umi-chan (left), but the stage versions of Honoka (center) and Kotori-chan (right) also have a more dynamic, moving appearance to their hair! It’s always great to see a whole new sculpt was made in order to include small details like these! (`・ω・´)
Umi Sonoda, Honoka Kousaka & Kotori Minami (Stage)!
The lovely μ’s debut outfits!
This shows the three characters as they looked when they first took the stage in episode 3! Even though there weren’t many people in the audience, they still sang and danced the best that they could for those who were there! It was such a lovely scene!! Honoka was really awesome in that episode… （*´∀｀*）
Just look at those expressions!! They’re trying so hard!!
Umi Sonoda, Honoka Kousaka & Kotori Minami (Uniform)!
The standard side of the school idols!
All three of the girls wearing their Otonokizaka Academy uniforms! The uniform become quite popular for its cute design! The facial expressions also capture each of their personalities so nicely!
You can choose to pose them walking toward school, or instead chatting in the classroom! Your very own school idols will take whichever pose you prefer!
Umi-chan with an embarrassed expression!
Umi-chan was so cute in this scene!! I wish I could have been the one pulling the jersey down!! (*゜∀゜)=3
This expression isn’t included with Umi-chan – it actually comes from one of the Fate/Stay Night Nendoroid Petites… you might need to make a few little modifications with a craft knife in order to make it fit nicely. (Unfortunately I can’t confirm that the parts will swap out with the prototype.)
The expressions on Kotori-chan and Honoka are those from the uniform version – these should be able to swap easily. Nendos from the same series generally swap expressions without problems! I think these smiles actually suit the stage outfits very nicely!
Nendoroid Petite: Love Live!
They’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!
Get in contact with our partner shops if you have any preorder or sales queries!
But that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ
