Mikatan revealed on her blog that part six of the Cheerful JAPAN! project will be a Cheerful version of the KAITO Nendoroid. Continue reading for all the information including the pre-order link.
KAITO’S Nendoroid will be the sixth part of Good Smile Company’s Cheerful JAPAN! line (charity products where a set amount will be donated for Japan’s earthquake relief that are announced the 11th of each month for one year). The first product was the Nendoroid Miku Support ver. announced back in March and recently they offered Rin and Len Cheerful Nendoroids in August. Along the same lines as the previous Cheerful Nendoroids these two will include everything the originals came with, as well as some extras.
For each figurine sold GSC will donate 1,000 yen of the price for aid relief efforts.
GSC’s online store will start taking Japanese orders immediately and will take international orders on their GSC Online Shop starting on October 11th until October 27th, 2011 (with a scheduled March 2012 release). Japanese orders will also have free shipping, while international orders have a 2,000 yen shipping charge. This figurine will be made-to-order; in other words, they will only produce as many as they have orders for, so pre-ordering is your best shot on getting them.
One big difference between these and the original run is that the new run will have faces that are compatible with newer Nendoroids!
Let’s take a look at what the original run offered.
Next we will list all the new items that come with the Cheerful ver.
Please note that Mikatan stated that the headband will have to be tied by yourself, though double-sided tape will work as well.
The price will be 3,000 yen per figurine (taxed in), with 2,000 yen shipping (for international orders). Pre-orders are now open and you can reserve yours by following this link.
