nendoroids | ねんどろいど

April Expected Arrivals

As always, a figure-heavy list:

nendoroid Haru-chan
(img from amiami)
I won’t lie…. her color scheme lured me in D: that and she’s riding a freaking carp! I mean, come on! and that cat… XDDD I love her “cold/allergies” expression too~ I can see that being useful.

nendoroid Kuroneko
(img from amiami) Since I got Kirino, I’d have to get her friend Kuroneko~ I’m really hoping Ayase will be made into a nendoroid, too… hopefully with yandere eyes… >_> I love her “hmph” expression XD

K-ON! nendoroid puchi set (Lawson/TBSishop exclusive)
(img from otacute)
I love K-ON :nibaihato: and this set is nice in particular because of Yui’s expression~

figma Senjougahara Hitagi
(img from amiami) Bakemonogatari is wonderful~ :ehup: and I’m pretty fond of Hitagi. Her ponytail is cute~

To Aru Kagaku no Railgun with Shirai Kuroko figma (PSP)
(img from amiami) Kuroko~~~~ :uehato:

*coughs* right, um, well obviously I’m getting this because Kuroko = :kiraheart: Not sure there’s much more I can say about it than that…. XD; This has since been delayed to “Summer 2011″… not sure if the cause of the delay is the game or the figure or both.

February Expected Arrivals

another month, another list of pre-orders!
February’s list is moderately long, but March’s will be almost non-existant, strangely enough. Not sure why March is such a dead spot…

nendoroid Kousaka Kirino
(img from amiami) this should be no surprise, given my (mild) obsession with OreImo XD; maybe I’ll actually change out Konata’s face to match with Kirino’s “haaa~” expression XD

(more…)

January Arrivals

So this was meant to be an “expected arrivals” post, but I slacked off and didn’t finish it in time ( ; A;)

First up is the Golden Overload Trio!

Umineko no naku koro ni chiru: Twilight of the golden witch (うみねこのなく頃に散:Twilight of the golden witch)
(img from amiami)
episode 8 of the Umineko series which ostensibly brings the story to a close and answers all the questions Ryuukishi is going to answer XD; (until Umineko “Rei” gets released, perhaps…)

(more…)

December Expected Arrivals

This (past) month’s list is going to be a long one. I don’t know why everything comes out in December (Christmas, maybe?) or perhaps it’s just everything I want coming out in Dec, but either way…

Here we go…
Umineko no naku koro ni: Ronde of Witches and Deduction (PS3)
(img from amiami) It’s no secret I love Umineko, so this should be no surprise. Supposedly all pre-orders come with red & blue truth pens XD; We’ll see. I did take a look at the other preorder items from various stores, but some of them are kind of… strange XD; (the Ange money clip is pretty epic, though, I have to say.)

(more…)

November Expected Arrivals

Well this is a bit late in posting, but since the amiami order hasn’t shipped yet I’m still good, I think >_>

Starting with things that have already arrived:

Dengeki G’s Magazine – Dec 2010
This month’s edition comes with two “bath posters” – one of Kuroko and one of Kanade – as well as an OreImo pencil board~ I’ll talk about the contents in detail in a later post.

(more…)

Nendoroid Mio & Yui review

A very belated review of the Mio and Yui Nendoroids.

First, Mio.
Nendoroid Mio face
She arrived at the beginning of February.

disassembled; quick-arriving packages

two photos today, since I didn’t post yesterday~

tangles of branches (003 of 365)

the first was taken in the morning yesterday, before I left.

got my head in my hands (004 of 365)

the second was taken this afternoon, when I disassembled Aryanna in an attempt to restring her with her current elastic.
that was a miserable failure, by the way. her strings were so stretched out it wasn’t possible to even push them to reconnect after I’d trimmed them down. so she’s currently in pieces. Well, her torso (minus head) is assembled currently (^ ^; ) somehow that one was okay.

I ordered new elastic from Luts along with other things I’d been meaning to order (the string puller and forceps were out of stock unfortunately! (T_T)), including two alternate pairs of hands, a face mask (so her faceup doesn’t get dirty in storage), silicon wig cap (to keep the wig from sliding and also to prevent [further] staining), and some pretty extras I happened to notice, like a crown headband~ (^ ^) No clothing items – there wasn’t anything I was particularly interested in, and no other dolls. I’m really out of the loop when it comes to other doll companies, so I don’t even know where to start regarding SD-sized clothing. I want to make most stuff myself, but certain things like shoes I’m definitely never going to make myself…. (^ ^;; ) I’m also tempted by a wig I saw at Leekeworld recently, but a) I need to remember what her wig color was first and b) she has three wigs already so technically she doesn’t need any others….

I have more photos from the disassembling that I might post to flickr later, and I’ll certainly take more photos once she’s been restrung properly (she’ll be able to stand~!).

The other event today was the arrival of my ミックミクかがみ Nendoroid. It’s Kagami in Hatsune Miku’s 「ミックミクしてあげる」 outfit, as seen in the Lucky Star OVA. This Kagamin is #62 in the Nendoroid series – I hadn’t realized there were so many now! (@_@) regular Kagamin is 28a, b & c (Comptiq, HP, and Chara)… and I think Tsukasa and Miyuki were just released not too long ago. Of course I’ve preordered Yui & Mio Nendoroids, but I’m getting a little nervous because some sites don’t seem to cut off their preorders even when they aren’t sure they’ll be able to fill all the orders they get. I suppose it’s no loss to them, if they don’t charge until shipping, if there’s not enough stock, the order just gets canceled – but for the customer, what do you do? Have faith the store you’ve chosen will come through? Place two and cancel the slower one? What if it falls through? Resort to ebay? I managed to snag HP ver Kagamin for a reasonable price (considering her popularity and length of time she’s been discontinued) on ebay, and it’s likely Mio & Yui will stay somewhat reasonable right after release, but there’s always a chance the company will end up with an unusually limited quantity, or they will just be SO popular demand greatly exceeds supply. K-ON! is pretty popular (evidenced by it gaining a second season! so excited!), but has Good Smile anticipated this? Well, one way or another those two will be mine. Ritsu and Mugi are a pass, though. (Sorry girls, one of you interrupts my OTP and the other is, well, entertaining but not my favorite.)

Listening to K-ON! music always makes me smile… and also makes me want a guitar again. We’ll see what happens there.
Tomorrow’s going to be fairly busy, I have no idea what my 365 will turn out to be.
