The Nendoroid series has been going for almost 7 years now, and Good Smile closing in on 300 Nendoroids in the line. That's a lot of plastic. To celebrate the occasion, Good Smile has set up a special page for a commemorative event that will include a special Nico Nico Douga broadcast on Dec. 15 with the reveal of number 300 and more.
The big news, though, is they're doing a quiz contest ... show ... thing. I think that's the best way to describe it. There's three different quizzes you can take now on the special event page: Practice, Enjoy, and Expert Courses, with each course being more difficult. Completing the Enjoy Course gets you a digital Gumako prize, while beating the Expert Course (and doing really well on it) might get you an invite to the Nendoroid Quiz finals in Akihabara. Good Smile will invite the top 3 scorers to the event and the winner gets an original Nendoroid trophy and a half-year of Nendoroid releases! The bad news for us is you can only enter if you live in Japan for the contest ... but you can still take the quizzes as often as you'd like for the heck of it.
We'll have more info as it becomes available ... but what do you think Nendoroid number 300 will be, Tomopop readers? My wild guess is a Saber x Miku crossover, because we all know how much love those two have gotten from Good Smile before ... right?
