We have already seen hobby magazines' scans, so just a quick summary:

Better picture of Amagami SS nendoroids, they will be released in Summer 2011.


Nendoroid Petit Taiga will be bundled with Anime Style magazine.

Starting from Vol.5 2011 a new nendo petit will come with this magazine every month.

New nendoroid from Strike Witches series (what's her name btw? ^^)


And new pics of Ika Musume's pre-prototype x)

Oh, great. So there's a new exclusive every month... I'm really starting to get pissed at all the stupid exclusives. ><;

Also, it looks like that Ika Musume is probably a petite too. I guess maybe she's next month's bundle?

Well, one would hope it would be a full nendo, but for now at least it doesn't seem so (I'm sure they'll end up doing one later). The face shape is more like that of petites, and her body is in a sort of twisted pose, which they really only do on petites.

I could be wrong, but it just LOOKS more like a petite to me.

I agree, her legs is an obvious proof, full-size nendoroids don't look like this...

Alright, now I'm just completely unsure on the whole Ika Musume thing:

Image

The face shape looks more like a full-sized nendo in these pictures. If so, I'm ok with it. Sometimes I like to be proven wrong. :3 (but there do certainly seem to be a lot of production leaks on this one, or is it just me?)

Also, it seems like they might be using the soft hair stuff for this (like on FA Saber). Which is a very nice touch, but she'll probably smell a bit when we get her. :P

I'm not a fan of Ika Musume anyway, but I'd like to see a full-size nendoroid of her, maybe she will be cute enough to buy? =3
And what does soft hair mean?

I can't say I've gotten around to watching much of the show myself, but she is cute.

The best example of the soft stuff I'm talking about is on figmas. Figmas use this stuff a lot lately. It's the soft rubbery stuff they'll use on clothing and sometimes hair, like the hair on Dead Master and Sakuya, King Kazuma's jacket, most any figma with a short skirt, and some skirt panels on Saber. The only Nendoroid I have that's used it is Full-Action Saber (it's on her front tendrils). It makes sense to use it on Ika Musume, since tentacles are supposed to be wiggly. >w<

Oh yeah, I guess BRS's coat does have some of it. I didn't notice until now. XD

Yeah, I kind of doubt the soft hair too but am remaining hopeful none the less. I'm hoping that maybe since most of her design is a bit plain, they'll do it as a gimmick to help her sell better.

If they make them out of soft plastic they could just put wires in them to make them posable. I'm not sure If i'd like that though because it would make them more delicate.

The only one I can think of at the moment is the Revoltech Alien's tail is like this.

As you said before, wires are fragile so I don't think it's possible =) Just a few ball-joints would be good =3

That would be really cool, but I really doubt it. I was also hoping they'd make Strength's tail posable but they didn't do that either. :< (not that I can see anyways)

Maybe I'm wrong again, I'd very much like to be. But every picture I can recall seeing had her tail in the same pose every time.

That does look more like a full sized nendoroid now. I'd love it if it turned out to be one.

I dont really care for them either It's hard to display so many small figures of the same hight together. I only really go for them if they are in a nice set like the Vocaloids.
