There are currently events going on in both France and America!!

They’re both taking place from the 4th to the 7th July 2013!

France (Paris): Japan Expo 2013
America (LA): ANIME EXPO 2013

Both GSC and Max Factory staff are taking part in the events as well! The photo above is from the event hall at ANIME EXPO 2013!! This was from the day before the event so it’s quiet now… but I’m sure it’s super busy by now!

The Nendo I introduced yesterday ‘Nendoroid Maiko Madoka’ as well as the ‘Nendoroid Yukata Miku’ I’ll be introducing today are both on sale at these international events! Plus they will also be available at CCG Expo to be held in Shanghai at a later stage!! (`・ω・´)

These two have become the ambassadors for Japan at these overseas events!!

They’ll also be available for online order for those in other countries!

Online orders will start on Monday the 8th of July!
I hope that these reviews will help you decide whether you want them!

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Yukata Ver. Natsutsubaki!

From the ‘Character Vocal Series 01: Hatsune Miku’ comes a Nendoroid of Hatsune Miku wearing a all-new red yukata! The lovely yukata has a design which makes use of the ‘natsutsubaki’ flower, and her famous twin-tails are just as cute as ever! Even during the hot summer, Miku is ready to perform for everyone!

She comes with three different expressions including a standard smiling face, a charming winking expression and a chibi drooling face for all the delicious food she’ll find during the Summer festivals! She also comes with some extra items to ensure she has fun at the festival, including a candy apple and a balloon yo-yo!

Miku-san is wearing a yukata once again this year, and this time it’s a lovely vibrant red! (*゚∀゚*)

Last year she was wearing a darker blue, but this time she is in a bright red, which has a girlish, playful charm to it making her look adorable!

It also features lovely prints of the Natsutsubaki (Summer Camellia) flower all over it, which really brings out the festival feeling! Not to mention that she has the same flower in her hair as well!

This is how the packaging looks!

This one is a lot simpler than yesterday’s Madoka… but of course that also means she doesn’t cost as much!! Σ(=゜ω゜=)

She’s the kind of Nendoroid that really looks amazing just as is, so you really don’t need to swap out too many parts! But if you want to you can always borrow parts from other Nendoroids for even more fun!

This is how she looks from the back!

Ahh! Miku-san’s hair accessories matches with the color of the yukata so nicely!!

I’m guessing that the yellow sash is made in the image of the yellow center of the Natsutsubaki flower… she really puts so much thought into her wardrobe! ^^

“Have you been waiting?” “Nope, just got here!”

…is the scene I was trying to capture with this pose!
But no matter what you do, you should never make Miku-san wait!! ( `Д´)/

The winking expression has a little bit of a mature charm to it… just looking at it gets my heart start racing!!

“I… I want one of those!!”

It seems Miku-san has found something she likes!! I know I’d be happy to buy her absolutely anything she wanted!! The chibi ‘drooling’ face so cute it so cute that it makes me want to drool as well! :P

“Here, want a taste?”

It seems the things she wanted were this balloon yo-yo and candy apple!! She looks really satisfied now that she has them!

The pattern on the yo-yo is amazing and the candy apple has a lovely shine to it that makes it look just like the real thing! Σ(゜∀゜*)

These can both be held by Miku, and are both items that are almost always found at Japanese Summer Festivals – so they suit the theme perfectly!

Madoka and Miku have swapped kimonos!

It’s amazing how much they change just by swapping out the bodies!! Being able to make changes like this so easily is one of favorite things about Nendoroids!

Looking at these two Nendoroids has reminded me just how lovely girls look in kimonos… If you decide to pick them up, then be sure to take them out with you to the Summer festivals! (=゜ω゜)ノ

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Yukata Ver. Natsutsubaki!

She’ll be up for preorder at the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP from the Monday the 8th July until Monday the 5th August 2013! Note that orders from the online shop are only scheduled to ship out in October 2013.

There’s a lot of time to order so there is no need to rush… but be careful not to miss out!! (`・ω・´)


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