Unfortunately it looks like it’s a Hobby Stock exclusive! 😦 A joint production between Hobby Stock and Goodsmile Company, this Louise is based off of the upcoming 3rd season of the Zero no Tsukaima anime series (though I guess it doesn’t really matter which season she’s from. Louise is equally cute in all of them!). Release date is yet to be determined.
The nendoroid will have three different expressions, two of which have been decided. Last Friday, Hobby Stock opened up a survey for voters, members and general alike, to decide what they would like for a third expression out of a list of seven:
If you want to you can head to this page here to vote. Voting ends on July 14, two mondays from this post. Below the 7 different facial expressions is a short questionnaire.
The first box wants you to input a nickname.
Q1 asks you which of the Zero no Tsukaima characters would you like to see a nendoroid of. In the list are:
- Irukukuu (no idea what that’s supposed to spell. She’s a character in the third season, and apparently regards Tabatha as an older sister, but they may or may not be blood related. She has long blue hair.)
- Eleanor (Louise’s blonde sister)
- Cattleya (Louise’s other sister)
- Tifania (the big boobied elf in the 3rd season)
Q2 asks if a “special nendoroid” (I assume limited edition, as in hobby stock exclusive or something) were to be released, would you buy it
Q3 the last box asks if you have any other comments.
Personally I can’t decide which face I like more… I spent a little bit of time trying to decide which one to use for my header, and in the end I just chose a random one lol. I’d have to think about it for a little bit.
