Frau Koujiro forgot to clean up before opening pre-orders

With the amount of Nendoroids being made these days, I wouldn't blame anyone for forgetting that Good Smile Company occasionally makes (really good!) scale figures too. The latest one that went up for pre-order is a 1/8-scale...

Wonder Festival 2013 Summer: Good Smile Company

With the huge deluge of Figmas and Nendoroids, not to mention their own brand of cycling gear (no, I'm not kidding!) you'd probably be forgive if you forgot that Good Smile Company also make scale figures as well! A fair numb...

Nendoroid Frau Koujiro gets a preview photo
Nendoroid Frau Koujiro gets a preview

The latest Mikatan preview is none other than the Nendoroid version of Robotics;Notes' Frau Koujiro! The little lady who speaks Internet lingo has a much more active sculpt than Akiho appears to have, and she's got quite a few accessories. With her, you'll get her default face, a smiling face, a little Pocky stick, a yaoi doujinshi and her little PokeCom, along with all the necessary arm pieces to hold them. To round things out, there's also a half-asleep face and matching messy hair option for her, along with a Gunvarrel plushie.

Frau should be out tonight at most retailers at the usual retail price for Nendoroids, around ¥3,334. Is she worth your hard-earned money, Tomopeeps?

The ever popular Science Adventure series from 5pb. heads onward with the recent anime release of Robotics;Notes, though where its popularity stands compared to the massively loved Steins;Gate, I'm a bit out of the loop to sa...

Nendoroid Akiho Senomiya up for pre-order photo
Nendoroid Akiho Senomiya up for pre-order

The latest Nendoroid to go up for pre-order is Akiho Senomiya from Robotics;Notes, and as noted in our previous post on her, you get a lot of accessories. Extra arms and legs, additional faces, her glasses, Poke-com and a poseable Tanegashi Machine 3 are all included, but we're still unsure about that weight balance issue. Hopefully, Good Smile's taken care of that, as it'd be a disappointment if she were suddenly back-heavy. Also, it's worth noting that an AR application coming out in the near future will let you change Akiho's look to ... a catgirl costume, apparently.

You can pick up Akiho for the usual Nendoroid pre-order price — ¥3,334 — and she'll be releasing in March. I still haven't gotten into Robotics;Notes, but for those of you who are fans, is she what you were hoping for?
