Comiket: a time for hundreds of thousands of smelly and sweaty people to crowd into one building and buy anime and manga merchandise and tons of doujinshi. It's also a time for us as figure collectors to find out a bit more about new products coming out or see new announcements, but sadly for those of us who are fans of Nendoroids, there's nothing we haven't seen yet, but that doesn't stop us from swooning over the many items headed our way over the next few months!
Hit the jump to see which Nendoroids were on hand at Comiket 79 as well as some new pictures and information on them!
First up, as seen in the header, are the new Panty and Stocking Nendoroids that we told you were coming yesterday, which now has official Nendoroid artwork (notice the differently shaped head). I really can't wait for this dynamic duo to come out and we'll be able to see more of them starting January 12 when the Good Smile Cafe will have them on display. Rounding out shows this season, we also have Kirino and Kuroneko from Oreimo on hand and Kyon from the recent Haruhi movie.
Also shown off yesterday was the B.G.M. Festival exclusive Nendoroid Petit set featuring five adorable girls. Featuring Miyako Miyamura from ef - a fairy tale of the two, Otome Asakura from Da Capo II, Kenshin Uesugi from Sengoku Rance, Kirari Shiino from Kira☆Kira, and Asuka Watari from Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai, this will be one solid set.
Many of the B.G.M. Festival Nendoroid Petit set gals have appeared in video games and anime, just like another set of Nendoroids that showed up (in picture form only, sadly), the Tantei Opera Milky Holmes girls! No word yet on the new mysterious Sherlock Shellingford or when the rest of the cast will be released, but I'd expect to see a lot more of them come the new year.
Touhou Project's Yuyuko Saigyouji was on hand with the new Suika figma. Sadly the ninth Nendoroid wasn't on hand (but at this point many believe it to be either Cirno or Suika), and we'll know for sure soon enough. Either way, I'm just glad they're continuing the line as it's one of the best.
Last, but not least, is the Mahou Tsukai no Hako Nendoroid Petit set that had been shown off back in early December and got its first full showing here at Comiket 79. Featuring Hibino Hibiki and Katsuragi Chikagi in their cross-dressing maid-ish outfits, a cell phone, and potentially even more accessories hidden, this seems to be one solid set.
Well, that's it in terms of Nendoroids from Comiket 79! What are you Tomopeeps looking forward to most and which of these do you already have on the way to you next year? Let us know in the comments!
