A Nico-Nico smile for everyone!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Nico Yazawa!

From the popular anime ‘Love Live!’ comes a figure of the Idol Research Club President who tries day and night to be a better idol, Nico Yazawa! She has been sculpted wearing her outfit used in the song ‘Bokura wa Ima no Naka de’.

Nico comes with alternate parts that allow her to be posed in her well-known ‘Nico-Nico Smile’ pose, and she also comes with the winking expression seen in the opening theme of the first season! Enjoy the company of Nico in her frilly stage outfit! ♪


“Everyone’s idol” Nico-Nii is joining the Nendoroid series, and she can be displayed in all sorts of her famous poses!

This is how she looks from the back! ♫

The smaller details like the heart-shaped cuts on her gloves and the lovely frilly skirt are all faithfully converted into Nendoroid size!

(・∀・) “Don’t forget that this is also her birthday week!”

We’re joined by Nico’s planner, Hamako!

(・∀・) “Her birthday was back on the 22nd, but at least we can still celebrate with her Nendoroid being announced in the same week!”

I celebrated her birthday by upping this image on my Twitter!

What are your most recommended points on the figure this time, Hamako?

(・∀・) “There are quite a few… but let me touch on some of the points that I really like about her!”

1) Stage Outfit

(・∀・) “Even in Nendoroid size the chequered skirt, tiny ribbons on her knee socks and the frills on her blouse are all carefully detailed!”

The red, black and white colors make a lovely combination! ♡

It’s the same outfit that the 1/8th Scale Honoka Kousaka is wearing! ♫

(・∀・) “The upcoming Nendoroids of μ’s will all be wearing this outfit to really make it a complete set for them to perform together! It’s the outfit from the song ‘Bokura wa Ima no Naka de’.”

2) Expressions

(・∀・) “Along with the lovely smile for her ‘Nico-Nico-Nii’ pose, she also comes with this lovely face!”

Ooooooohhhh!! (*´▽`*)

(・∀・) “These needlessly cute poses really do suit Nico-Nii perfectly!”

The winking expression captures her cute and determined sides all at once!

By the way… the expressions for Nico’s Nendoroid were drawn by the same Eco-shi that did the expression on Honoka Kousaka! The expression is filled Love Live! love! (。・ω・。)ノ

3) Poses

(・∀・) “As I’m sure many fans will already have figured out – the combination of this outfit and the winking expression means you can easily display her in this adorable pose from the original opening theme!”

Nico-Niiiiiii! ♡

She’s too cute!! I can’t take much more of this!
I really can’t take much more of this!

(・∀・) “Along with bent left and right arms, she also comes with outward bent hands and a bent right leg allowing for poses like this and many more!”

The selection of parts is definitely very nice for making idol-like poses!

(・∀・) “We’re hoping fans will enjoy displaying her as if on stage, ready to perform for you whenever you need!”

Keep everyone’s favorite idol in the palm of your hand! ♡

Nendoroid Nico Yazawa!

She will be up for preorder from tomorrow! ♡

(・∀・) “There will also be a special bonus on orders from the GSC Online Shop!”

W-What is this?! (゚A゚;)

(・∀・) “A special base made in the image of the first season’s opening theme!”

Ah-hah! I thought I recognised the pattern from somewhere! ヽ(o´∀`o)ノ

(・∀・) “Not only is there an alternate stand, but the bonus also comes with small and large extension parts to alter the height of the base – this makes it easier to create a more interesting stage!”

I see, I see! So the image above is just example use of each of the extension parts!

(・∀・) “Future releases of Love Live! Nendoroids will include similar parts as GSC Online bonuses, so you can collect up and build an impressive stage for them to perform on!”

In other words… once all nine members of μ’s have been released, I’ll be able to recreate the opening theme in Nendoroid size!

(・∀・) “It’s always nice to be able to do something to match up Nendoroids that come in a set like like this!”

Be sure to check the GSC Online Shop for more details!
