Nendoroid Canaan & Canaan 1/8 PVC Figure

GSC has announced the release of both a nendoroid and PVC figure of Canaan from the Canaan anime series. The nendoroid is scheduled to be released 1 month before the PVC figure in Dec 09.

The nendoroid version is nice, combining the usual effect of super deformed cuteness with kind of action hero quality. The nendo comes with 3 interchangable faces
-a distant bland expression
-a shouting/angry heat of battle expression
-a mona lisa half smile expression.
Interesting to add that the Nendoroid can take the same signature action pose as the PVC figure which I thought was a really nice touch. Seldom do you get Nendoroids being able to take "dynamic action" poses. I just hope the support system is strong enough to support the Big head that nendos are famous for :)

I like the colors and the dynamism of the figure. The cape is a nice touch and the facial expression is appropriate and well sculpted.The one thing I don't like is the "scenic diorama" base. I don't know, it just seems dated and cheesy to me. I would take a nice clear base anyday. Personal preference.

Overall, both are really great figures to add to your collection. I will definitely be going for the Nendo while the PVC figure I am still considering.

You can get both PVC and Nendo from PlayAsia. They ship internationally.
