Nendo Coalition

提督の Heart を掴むのは、私デース!

The popularity of Kantai Collection, or more commonly referred to its shortened term Kancolle, is going stronger and stronger.

Announcements and releases are flooding the world of figure collection as well as never-ending supplies of merchandise (Unlike the flow of Bauxite XDc)

After the overwhelming demand of Nendo/Figma Shimakaze a few months back, it’s no surprise that many more will come courtesy of GSC, including Nendo/Figma Akagi as well as this gem… :3c

A random post while preparing myself for the upcoming Comic Fiesta 2013 this weekend, which is just T-minus 5 days left! w

Anyway, if you’ve followed the Bakemonogatari Second Season since last season, you’ll know about the bubbly middle-schooler being Shaft’d into a pale, radiant goddess/deity.

The recent arc from Koimonogatari even fully moe-fied her appearance with a dash of “Nadeko dayo~”! XDc

Why the mention of Sengoku Nadeko you ask?

Well, ever since she’d become Nadeko Snake-sama, I’ve silently cried out for a Nendo and/or Figma version of her. Unfortunately GSC have yet to hint, let alone announce the possibility of her figure creation. :/

逆襲の萌え布団

Whenever Mikatan-san of GSC fame produced a preview buroggu entry of any Nendo and/or figures, it is guaranteed that the pre-order for that particular item will be upped the next day…

Guess who’s showing up on Mikatan’s newest entry? ^_~

Stand up to the Nendo

Roughly a season ago, I’ve entered the GSC’s 13th Wonderful Hobby Life 4 You 5th PhotoCon in hoping to nail myself a set of PS3 (1st prize!)…

Unfortunately, my entry failed to win me some of the most attractive prizes made available…^^;

Ah well there’s always next year… ^~^

All Rights Left Unreserved!

Luckily, she got herself a replacement in such a short notice… ^~^

3 x Hhhnnnggghhh!!!

In accordance to Konata Rules of Three, an otaku must get 3 of the same figure/merchandise: One for keepsake; One for display; One for propaganda… :3c

So I did and got myself 3 sets of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku Absolute HMO Edition! >:3c

Nice neko themed ride BTW, Mikatan! XDc

GARwaii desu ne?

The PO for a trio of Nendoroids has surfaced today at various online stores… Looks like GSC has gone all out with their cutesy action figures lately… XDc


Coming this January at 3,333 yen is the ever dependable little sister of the main girl from the fan favourite anime series K-On! (Which ends just a couple of days ago… T^T But fear not a movie has been announced! ^_^), Hirasawa Ui!!!


みくみくにしてあげる!

Cuteness overload!!! *Dies*


Revealed during the recent WonFes, this special Miku, dubbed the Nendoroid Hatsune Miku Absolute HMO (Hatsune Miku Orchestra) Edition, is not a repaint of what you’ve seen before but a totally new mould incorporating the new joint system employed in Nendo Saber SME (Super Movable Edition, which will be available late October)…

Most notable of this new system is the articulated joints around elbows and knees, even on the chest! Her interchangeable expressions include the default smiling face, the winking face as well as the kittie =3 face… X3c She even comes with a pair of black goggles! :Dc

Before you’re thinking “Meh, yet another Nendo Miku”, think again! This one features her in the most kawaii ever expressions to date, as well as very very long sleeves which quadruple-up her total cuteness! XDc

Tons of accessories also included including loud-speaker, drum sets and keyboard, as well as parts to show her headset hatch opened for maintenance! Lotsa wires and cables there!!! XDc Another couple of face seal stickers/decals are included for Nendo Rin and Len! :3c


Due to be released at the last month of the year, no information as of yet on her price but should be around 3,200 yen – 3,500 yen range… PO opens this end of month! ^_^


本日、キミは何色?

PINK!!!!! Of course! XDc Finally a decent action figure of Katsura Hinagiku of Hayate no Gotoku! fame. ^_^


It seems my prayers have been answered, as the Nendoroid Hinagiku, a coloured prototype revealed during Summer WonFes just last week, finally upped for PO just today!


It seems the Nendo version of the ever Tsundere Seitokaichou Hina-chan will sport a semi movable elbow for her arms! 0_0

Lookin’ berry lovely with her normal face plate… <3


It seems she comes with only a few accessories… Here we see a couple of wooden swords – Masamune and Kendo training stick…

Pointy finger is pointy… XDc


She also got her tsun tsun face plate + nekomimi x shippo!!! wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww <3 <3 <3 <3

Looks like her tail will be able to support her body… She also comes with a new type of stand it seems…


She’ll be retailed for 3,619 yen and will be available in November…


Pink Aria

After half a decade of loyally serving her master, my (Cube) companion will finally stripped of her duty, accepting her well-earned retirement… ^^;


Bought during my first job after graduated from college, my Sony Ericsson 510i has faithfully follows me everywhere, attending to my needs and such… But now it’s time to obtain a newer model as she’s been outclassed many times by now in technological standards…

Incidentally, comrade ZamsJournal put up his for adoption, at a huge fraction of her original price, which I immediately obtained after seeing her superiority compared to mine… That was half a moon ago… ^_^

Being used—achem—second-handed, my newly adopted personal assistant is slightly damaged, so I’ve decided to get her a new chassis, which arrived just yesternite… ^_^
