Even though I never actually posted an full post dedicated to nendoroids, but I am actually a nendoroid (Official Nendoroid web site in Japanese) collector. I’ve owned over 20 nendoroids to date include: all five Suzumiya Haruhi characters, three Suszumiya Haruhi WonFest bunny girls, all ten of Lucky Star character with different versions, and the Mikkumiku Kagami, Itoshiki Nozomu from Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei, Saber lion, Hatusne Miku. And today I’ve just added Vocaloid Megurine Luka to my nendoroid arsenal. Well I always felt that nendoroids are more thing that I play with rather than a real collector item. But seeing how I have accumulated such a large number of them from the past, I think I should post some of them so they don’t feel left out from my collection.
I actually had to fight hard to get Megurine Luka.For some reason that she sold out on pre-order really quick and I actually wasn’t able to pre-order her from any of my usual Japanese shops. In the end I was only able to get my hand on her right on her release date. I refreshed few site’s web page like mad and was able to find stock on Hobby Search. Purchased her quickly but when I checked back later in a few hours, it’s all gone. Funny how she was not even available from Amazon Japan while most other nendoroids are. Then because I wanted to try out the SAL shipping method, I had to wait for quiet a few weeks for her to arrive from Japan. After all that, I’m glad that I finally have her.
