Nendoroid Dead Master, K-ON Petites and wooser! | goodsmile company Mikatan's Blog English Version

goodsmile company Mikatan's Blog English Version


It's December 24th!

Merry Christmas everyone!

I know this blog usually makes a big thing out of Christmas, but this time it's a little different. It's just another day like any other, right? ^^;

I think all the hype actually makes me feel less enthusiastic about the festive season... I think it's the perfect day to go play Monster Hunter alone in a restaurant

And with that bizarre introduction over...

Good Smile's final products for the year are being shipped out!

First up is Nendoroid #128,

Nendoroid Dead Master !

Nendoroid Dead Master-chan was sent out on the 22nd December!

It should have reached a store near you by today!

Let's take a look!

Her Dead Scythe & skulls are included!

The skulls use transparent rods to be displayed around her, which also make use of the ball-type connection so that they can be posed at various different angles! It's great to have the skulls floating around her like this - great work production team!

There are a total of four expressions!

Firstly, her Grinning Face!

You can't help but crack a little smile when you see this cunning smile across her face!

The stand can also be used to recreate your best battle scenes!

Just like Black Rock Shooter did, Dead Master-chan uses the stand that connects into the back of the Nendoroid, meaning she can be posed in aerial poses like this one!

Next is this face with her tongue out!

This one of course let's you recreate the famous scene from the anime where Dead Master-chan licked her fingers before her battle. It also looks a bit like she is snickering at her opponents when you use this face...

The charming CHANxCO Face!

It's so refreshing to see her like this!

She also comes with extra sleeve parts to recreate the CHANxCO illustration... it really gives her a completely different feeling to enjoy!

Nendoroid Petite: K-ON! !

The best thing about trading figures is the anticipation you get when you open it up to see which one you got!

My lucky number one was...

Sunburnt Azunyan!!

フィギュアメーカー・グッドスマイルカンパニー勤務 『ミカタンブログ -松戸駅からググって0分-』

My second was Yui Hirasawa (Winter Uni)!

The guitar can even be removed from her at any time! Plus the painting and details on the guitar are absolutely stunning!

All that... and they only cost ¥500 each!

How can such adorable figures be so cheap!!

I would like to introduce each girl one-by-one, but I get the feeling the blog will go on forever then, so instead I'll just go over my favorites!

Ritsu Tainaka (Winter Uniform)!

I was a little bit worried as to whether the drum set would come out nicely when I saw the master figure...

But it's come out perfectly!

When you actually pick it up in your own hands and notice how tiny it is... it's really incredible!
So tiny, but still such high quality!

It's not as hard as it looks!

There are instructions for putting it together!

This is placed inside the box, so be careful you don't accidentally throw it away when you open the box!

There are instructions for other characters as well, so if you're unsure about how something connects up just take a look.

...the whole group together!

Here are the Winter Uniform versions!

And here are the Swimsuit versions!

Looking at the girls in their swimsuits even though it's Winter is just like getting to enjoy ice-cream in the Winter! A super treat!

Sunburnt Azunyan also has bendable legs!

You sit her down in this lovely pose!

'Moe Moe Kyun!'

This is the secret character from this set!

Maid Mio in the 'Moe Moe Kyun" pose!

You can also exchange all of their expressions, so you could put this embarrassed face on anyone else if you wanted to!

And the last product for today is the mysterious creature that lives in the internet...

The wooser Plushie !

wooser will also be sent out on the 27th of December!

フィギュアメーカー・グッドスマイルカンパニー勤務 『ミカタンブログ -松戸駅からググって0分-』

Please note!

wooser is going to be sent out sealed in vinyl bags like this!

He isn't sent it a box like most figures, so he might get a little squished inside the bag...

フィギュアメーカー・グッドスマイルカンパニー勤務 『ミカタンブログ -松戸駅からググって0分-』

Give him a squeeze after you get him out the packet!

It's not to be mean to wooser, but in fact to spread out the fibers inside the plushie to prevent it from losing shape from being in the vinyl packet! You can squeeze him quite hard - he's a durable little creature!

フィギュアメーカー・グッドスマイルカンパニー勤務 『ミカタンブログ -松戸駅からググって0分-』

He's multiplying!

Works great as a present, as something to display for yourself or your friends,, or even as something to spend the nights with!

Sorry that it wasn't able to arrive before Christmas, but it should reach you before the new year!


There are three stickers included with each plushie!

And a total of 30 variations.

I gave him some clothes to try on!

These clothes actually really suit wooser! The bow kind of looks like his mouth now. ^^;

Today is Christmas Eve!

So here is a Christmas present for everyone...

Unfortunately I've only got one photo of it...
