Comiket 83: Prism Nana Nendoroid prototypes

Comiket 82: Good Smile Company's Nendoroids photo
Comiket 82: Good Smile Company's Nendoroids
by Jon Wills

Good Smile Company just showed off some new figures and Nendoroids at Comiket 82. We'll be taking a look at the Nendoroids first:

The first that caught my eye and in the future my wallet is Akari from YuruYuri. Her character design is already so adorable and she has huge eyes, perfectly fitting to the Nendoroid format. I'm certain she will be a popular and fun figure. When I first saw the photo of her figure, I was instantly reminded of her famous words, "Akariiin! Yuru Yuri Hajimariyo!" 

The next that I saw was their Type Moon Nendoroid set; most of these are from Fate Stay. I can definitely see Saber Zero on her motorbike as being a popular choice of the set. There are lots of good figures here; my personal favorite is Phantasmoon Eclipse from Carnival Phantasm. The moon charm in her hair and kitty ears is just too cute!

There were also Nendoroids from a new magical girl series Prism Nana, which were announced at the same time the animation for the show was unveiled. There are yet even more coming out, too: two Nendoroids from Touhou and even a Nanoha Nendoroid.

There are a lot of Nendoroids on the horizon, and we'll be sure to keep track of all of them and keep you updated as more information comes out about them. So, what do you think, Tomopeeps? Do any of these catch your eye?
