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 many Nendo-sized figures out there wearing school uniforms, a classroom play set is sensible. This is the first in a new series called CUBE, which makes me feel optimistic we’ll get more varied backdrops for our little deformed friends.
I do have my misgivings, though. The old play sets were actual sturdy structures that you can snap together, and this new one appears to be made of paper, though the accessories are plastic and 3D. I’m not sure how I feel about that, and the finish of the paper could make or break a photo shoot depending on your set up and know-how (notice in the header image how the “floor” is shiny/reflective). Of course, I don’t have it in front of me, and I can’t really judge it too harshly, so I’ll just be cautious for now.
At the very least, it does come with some sweet accessories (two desks, a lectern, a computer, lockers, a bookshelf, books, and stickers for decorating the paper). Images in the gallery are from Good Smile’s retail listing.
Release is in July, 2014, and retail price is ¥1,400. And if you’re interested in some speculation, feel free to drop in your hopes for future CUBEs. In my case, I like a good beach backdrop.
GIANTmicrobes has just revealed its brand-new Spring plush release: a tiny human! Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and we’re reminded of the fact that at one point in our lives, we were really, really tiny.
The plush Human Being, apart from being oddly adorable, makes a “heartbeat” sound as well if you squeeze it. If you want to get one for your momma, or a friend, or just yourself, it’ll run you US$12.95 at GIANTmicrobes’ online shop. Since it’s them, the plush will probably also come with a little brain food, because education is a big part of what these plushies are all about. I’ve always liked that about GIANTmicrobes.

The Sengoku Astray from the Gundam Build Fighters anime becomes a Master Grade in 1/100 scale! Using a modified Astray Red Frame as a base, it features 2 swords that have been meki-plated to have a chrome finish and gimmicks to deploy the shoulder armor as an additional pair of arms. Shield on the back can be hand held. Clear parts and gilded parts re-create realism on colors and its texture.
This MG kit of Gundam Astray Blue Frame Second Revise marks the first Astray variation to get the royal MG treatment! Based on its design for the “Gundam SEED VS ASTRAY” side story published in Dengeki Hobby magazine, the Mobile Suit comes sharply molded in color and will be incredibly flexible upon completion. It can hold various dynamic action poses, and detail is spot on with intricate mechanisms realized on its highly-articulated inner frame. Its signature Tactical Arms II weapon can switch between three main forms: Flight, Blade, and Gatling Forms. Furthermore, its blades are detachable for use as blade arms and the gatling gun as a separate handheld weapon. Foil stickers, tetron stickers, and dry transfer decals are included along with a blue Action Base. Note: The grey Action Base shown in the last photo below is not included, sold separately. Includes exploded-view pictorial-type instructions with Japanese text.
Standing 8.3 Inch tall in 1/400 scale, this plastic model kit makes a great addition to any display. The Test Type-01 consists of 330 pieces and features 60 points of articulation to allow for creation of your own custom poses.
