Good Smile Company Lab reminds us Nendoroid play sets are still a thing

It's been a while since a proper Nendoroid play set blipped my radar. Play Future just put one up for pre-order under the Nendoroid More label developed by GSC Lab, and though the design isn't too crazy or inventive, with so ...

Check out this Project Mirai Nendoroid playset
by Brian Szabelski

Also spotted on Mikatan's blog today was a gallery showing off the latest spotlighted Nendoroid of the past, Hatsune Miku ... but the real surprise was the playset Miku was photographed in. It's a playset of the room from the (sugary sweet) opening of the recently released 3DS title Hatsune Miku and Future Starts: project mirai. Given that Miku and co. are in their Nendoroid forms in the title, it makes sense that the playset is Nendoroid-sized, complete with all the accessories you see in the opening. It's also worth noting that the entire thing was 3-D printed, and it looks pretty good, if you ask me!

The sad news? This is a one-off piece and there aren't plans to produce it at the moment. But you can check it out at the Akibahara GSC Cafe, which is where it's currently being displayed. Would you buy this if it were an actual playset, Mikupop members?

Tomopop Review: Re-Ment's miniature kotatsu replica playset photo
Tomopop Review: Re-Ment's miniature kotatsu replica playset
by Topher Cantler

Okay, so it's not officially a playset. But if you're hanging around here on Tomopop, chances are that's what you'd be using Re-Ment's replica kotatsu for, and that's why I got one. Having been relieved of my confusion as to the existence of miniaturized food items and household furniture a while back, the kotatsu seemed a must-have simply for its versatility and potential for hilarious photo galleries.

I felt the best way to go about reviewing this would be to try it out with several different sizes and varieties of figures, and judge whether or not the resulting images would indeed be hilarious. Was it as fun as I hoped it would be, and as well-detailed as we've been hearing it is? Find out after the jump in my full review.
