Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

September! No wonder it’s already cooling down! We’re already in September!! Almost time for the culture festivals in schools around Japan to start! ♪

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Petite: Love Live!:
Sore wa Bokutachi no Kiseki Ver.

From the popular anime ‘Love Live!’ comes a set of Nendoroid Petite figures featuring the members of μ’s in their stage outfits from the second season opening theme, ‘Sore wa Bokutachi no Kiseki’.

The set includes members Honoka Kousaka, Umi Sonoda, Kotori Minami, Hanayo Koizumi, Rin Hoshizora, Maki Nishikino, Nico Yazawa, Eli Ayase, Nozomi Tojo and one secret figure! Collect them all to complete a Nendoroid Petite Love Live! Stage!

Oooooooh!! (*´▽`*)

Cute Nendoroid Petite figures of all nine members of μ’s in their white, black and red stage outfits! ♥

I can just picture the opening theme playing through my head now…

Each of their outfits are ever so slightly different – all following the original character designs down to a tee!

The details are enough to make one forget just how small these Nendoroid Petites are! (゚A゚;)

(・∀・) “…as usual, we went a bit overboard with the details!”

We’re joined by Hamako from the planning team!

(・∀・) “It’s actually rather hard to keep detail on Nendoroid Petites, but each of their outfits has ever so slight differences and accessories that bring out their respective characters – we did our best to keep them in tact!”

The varying accessories on their chests as well as their hats and ribbons are all carefully sculpted!

The earrings swaying slightly with the poses are also lovely! (*´∀`*)

Each of the characters also has a rather dynamic look to them, as if they really are in the middle of dancing! ♥︎

Even the hair has been sculpted to match the poses – swaying in the direction of movement! Also… these poses… they’re rather familiar…

(・∀・) “They’re all taken directly from the opening to the second season!”

I knew it!!

That also explains why they look like they’re dancing – the poses really were taken right in the middle of a dance! (=゚ω゚)ノ

(・∀・)”It’s actually quite fun to watch the opening theme and try to pause the video at each of the poses to compare the figure with the original scene!”

Maki-chan’s pose is right from the start! I recognise it!! (*´Д`)
Hanayo-chan’s is also very memorable from the opening! I recognised it as soon as I saw her!

(・∀・) “Some of the characters are based on poses where the camera wasn’t really focusing on them, so it can be a little harder sometimes!”

… I shall find them all! (`・ω・´)

Although…. the opening theme is filled with all sorts of dance moves and possible poses. It must have been quite difficult for you to decide on the poses!

(・∀・) “It took ages! We really struggled to come to a decision on some of the characters – but after checking with all the Love Live! fans in the office I think we got a nice varying set of poses! Poses that really bring out the personalties of the characters too!”

(・∀・) “Another thing that we took into consideration was displaying them together! Although one by one they are each really cute – the μ’s members obviously look best when they’re together, so we made sure they looked great when displayed next to each other!”

You really did have to keep all sorts of things in mind while working on the poses! ♫

(・∀・) “This is the first time that all the members can be collected in a single set of figures, so I wanted it to feel special!”

Right! Let’s display them each by school grade!

– First Years –

– Second Years –

– Third Years –

They’re all so adorable!!

They look great separated by grade like this, but there are all sorts of other combinations that I want to try too!

I guess I should just display them all together!! 。゚(゚´Д`゚)゚。

(・∀・) “We’re helping out fans who want to do that by including three special bonuses for fans to enjoy – bonuses that help display them as a set even more!”

#1: Box Purchases: Special Stage Background!

(・∀・) “Samurai from the GSC Design Team made a special background stage based on the opening theme to use as a display base for the Nendoroid Petites!”

I can feel the Love Live! spirit of the Samurai!! (゚A゚;)

This is how it looks when you display them on it!

(・∀・) “Even the floor and curtains have been made to look just like the gymnasium from the OP!”

This background will be found as the inner-cardboard of the large box when you purchase a box of figures! (σ・∀・)σ

#2: Good Smile Online Bonus: Special Nendoroid Petite Bases (Heart)

(・∀・) “Nendoroid Petite bases each made featuring the image colors of the characters! Plus each with a cute idol-like heart!”

Unique Nendoroid Petite stands must be a rather rare item! Not to mention they come with hearts as well!! (´□`。)

(・∀・) “These will be included with preorders of a box of ten figures from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP”

Which means that you get both the above box stage background bonus as well as the heart stands!

#3: Karuzawa Online Bonus: Special Nendoroid Petite Bases (Stars)

(・∀・) “Similar to the heart bases but with stars instead, shining as brightly as the μ’s member’s smiles!”

Obviously you’re welcome to buy the Nendoroids one-by-one in stores, but if you’re a collector be sure to grab them in a box to get these lovely bonuses as well! (`・ω・´)

(・∀・) “That’s all the bonuses this time around! Check the GSC Site tomorrow for more info!”

All nine characters dressed up in the 2nd opening outfits:

Nendoroid Petite: Love Live!:
Sore wa Bokutachi no Kiseki Ver.

They’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow! ♥

… by the way…

There is a secret character in this set, isn’t there?! Who is it?!

(・∀・) “Fufufu… for all those who read this far, I present you with a sneak peek!”

How many of you have figured it out?!

Perhaps you’ll see more tomorrow on the GSC website!
Be sure to check the GSC Site at around 12:00JST!
