Day Break Illusion is probably one of the worst series in recent memory that I've still managed to finish. Against all odds, it was an awful, muddled mess. A dark, tarot-themed magical girl series helmed by a number of Nanoha...
Nendoroid Saber Bride comes with her sword (Aestus Estus: The Embryonic Flame) and the choice of three faces: a smiling face, a sideways glance, and a really bizarre-looking one apparently created by Fate/EXTRA CCC's character designer. She might also come with a musical note that can attach to her hair.
If you remember the recent Nendoroid Saber Extra preview, you may recall that I mentioned Saber Extra was one of my least favorite Saber designs... mostly because Saber Bride exists and currently holds the dubious honor of being my least favorite. While I'm not fond of the design under normal circumstances, I think I like it even less in a super-deformed (or chibi) format since it really doesn't translate well. However, the oddest thing about this is that the nendoroid seems to be getting a mass release whereas the figma was part of a game bundle, which seems to be something of a trend.
Pre-orders are listed as opening on December 5th. In the mean-time, be sure to check out the photos in the gallery.
Kahotan's latest preview is the upcoming Nendoroid Akari Taiyou from Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou, a teeny tiny version of the tarot-wielding protagonist. Sadly, you don't get the life-sized tarot card she's pictured with in one of the photos, but you do get a scaled-down one as an accessory, along with her Tenebrae Mode hair and face, along with her rapier. So, there's always the choice between the happy, smiling version and the more serious business version, which is the one I think looks better.
Akari's co-star in the series, Seira Hoshikawa, is also being made into a Nendoroid, with the assumption being that she's coming out sometime in 2014. As for Akari, you'll get the chance to pre-order her starting Tuesday, Dec. 3, in Japan.
Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP!

After Kahotan previewed her last week, we knew Nendoroid Aigis would be going up for pre-orders today, and now she's being listed at all the major stores. I'm pretty sure I don't need to run over how totally adorable she is, ...
With her colour prototype recently unveiled at Miyazawa Model Expo, it was surely only a matter of tiem before the adorable Nendoroid Aigis got a full-fat Kahotan preview. That day is today, as Kahotan busts out the camera and gives us plenty of details on this latest release.
Firstly, there's confirmation Aigis will be one of the fully-articulated edition Nendoroids, which means proper elbow and knee joints for extra poseability. She's also shown with a great array of accessories, including effects parts for her finger guns. There's also three of her removable arm weapons included - cannon, rifle and bad-ass rocket punch gauntlet. You'll get a matching number of faces too, with smiling, angry and close-eyed being your options. Most adorably, Aigis also comes with a miniature version of her 'charred screw', an item that will be familiar to dedicated players of Persona 3.
I'm pretty sure I don't need to tell you how good the sculpt and paint look - she's a perfect chibified recreation of the character, and darn adorable to boot. We don't have a confirmed price yet, but pre-orders will open next week on the 26th. I'm pretty sure I'll be getting hold of her, how about you readers?
It's no great secret that Saber is mostly over-promoted but, when the result is collectibles like these, it's really no wonder why. Saber Extra (Fate/Extra) is one of my least favorite Saber designs and yet she's been rendered in Nendoroid form so well that I actually kind of want this figure despite not being much of a Nendoroid fan these days.
The Nendoroid features the usual translucent skirt parts in addition to translating her exposed cleavage in a surprisingly non-creepy way (Something that the line hasn't always done well in the past). Saber Extra comes with her sword as well as a rose that seems to work wells as a general Nendoroid accessory. So yes, she may be yet another Saber Nendoroid but she's surprisingly decent.
