I became aware of the "Smart Dolls" yesterday - wow, are they georgeous! Beautiful work, really - but so far :(
Have you come to toy trade fairs in Germany in time? Or do you have already some dealers which you delivered here?
Hope you understand my bad english ^^
Many Greetings, Doschi
( forgot to proofread, not my native language/ do pardon) A few personal opinions that might help promote the Japans 2020 Olympics : First: The committee with the private sector businesses should take advantage of most of the Japan-theme conventions that are held abroad. Second: The Japan Tourism Agency could implement an agreement with the Japanese airlines that enables some sort of quota for cargo that can benefit the private Japanese businesses. This would enable fast track transportation, of promotional and informational merchandise with low costs. Third: most big conventions are held in big cities therefore have embassies and most of them have connections flights to Japan. This is one way for promoting the Olympics of 2020, and its culture to already fans and newcomers. Another consideration is that most Japanese culture-theme conventions will charge nothing to little to have Cool Japan enterprises participate and be part of the conventions. You can also play it as a package agreement ; encompassing all the agencies into one large booth (just if it works of course). This should enable the agencies to come in contact and promote the Olympics in a direct manner with the people that are already interested in Japans culture and the newbies of this great culture.
sooo... any plans on making these available for purchase? I'd love costumes for them!
I know! Every time there is a new post my wallet is getting thinner and thinner. May be I should pour some water and make it expand a little XD
Danny, you are an asshole to my wallet. I JUST ordered Eiji, but the tan guy due out march is BEAUTIFUL!
I hope my credit card recovers T.T

Personal opinion: The committee with the private sector businesses should take advantage of most of the Japan-theme conventions that are held abroad. also the Japan Tourism Agency should have an agreement with the Japanese airlines that enables some sort of quota for cargo and transportation that can be beneficial for the private Japanese businesses. This would enable fast track transportation, of promotional and informational merchandise with low costs. Basically most big conventions are held in big cities therefore have embassies and most of them have connections flights to Japan. This is a great way for promoting the Olympics of 2020, and its culture to already fans and newcomers of this culture. I know it is easy to say than to implement but we must take in consideration that most Japanese culture-theme conventions will charge nothing to little to have them participate and be part of the conventions. You can also sell this as a package agreement encompassing all the agencies into one booth. This should enable the agencies to come in contact and promote the Olympics in a direct manner with the people that are already interested in Japans culture and, the newcomers of this great culture.
awesome cartoon showing ----------- thanks to danny chooo.

it would be nice if you can make her mouth move.its a really good idea to do Danny.
i would want one that speaks and can move it's mouth. it would look more realalistic.
So awesome! I hope to see this become a thing! I would definately buy it~ I hope it wasn't (isn't) a joke X3
Hello from Canada!
I am just hoping for an update on the smart doll plus. I have always wanted a robot like this! I've wanted a small one, and I know that others want a larger size and that you are focused on developing that... but at the same time it is hard to tell from the pictures how far you are in your process. I want to have an idea of where you all are in the process, and what the ETA currently is. Thanks!
You have nice way to share your knowledge. Well organized and perfectly arranged thank you.

It's really amazing idea about your smart doll.
I also noticed that you are trying to make it able to connect with IFTTT.
So I am wondering if you need some way to let the doll able to connect with the IPcamera for liveview.
(I mean with other cameras in the house instead of setting one in the doll's head)
We are TUTK from Taiwan specializing in video transforming platform and IoT connection ways.
The main solution we provide is let iOS/Android able to connect with the devices in house with 3G or Wi-Fi.
Now there's about 3kk devices with our solution in the world (Like スマカメ in Amazon JP)
If you are interested in linking with cameras , please kindly tell me! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am looking forward to talk with you in Tokyo!
zoo's are sad but they do a good job of educating kids and adults about what animals are out there and how big they can really get. i think the most important part is that the animals aren't alone in their pen. 3 or 4 of the same animal seems about right. pals to play all day with ^^;
how have they held up? its been almost 10 years!
...Her transformation is too fuwa fuwa~
bout the wheels...ya because of that simple fact, non-remove-able, I had to put them aside, for some kids using them(my mum gave them to sb for a moment) in dirt+coca cola...heh yet I enjoyed rolleblading back then, don't have a photo still...
Got the same exact color :D
Danny, I love this smart doll plus! When can I buy one??
I don't speak Japanese? What does it say?
I really love Chitose's character designs here , but I don't know if i'll buy her doll as I really don't like the mouth design I've seen so far. =/

When converted to Australian dollars the doll itself is over $600 and the clothing is up to $184!
I think the dolls look great but for a non-robotic toy (btw why is it called a smart doll when there are no robotics/electronic versions for sale yet) don't you think the prices a a bit too high?
When your selling a t-shirt for a doll at a higher price than what I would pay for a t-shirt for myself to wear, there is something very WRONG with the the world.
When you begin mass production either in Japan or ffshore will prices drop and if so when. Will the price drops be significant do you predict?
At these prices your non-smart smart dolls are toys fr the rich only. I can't afford such prices as much as I love anime and your characters.
I've been torn apart between buying Mirai and Ivory for a while. I think that Ivory is SUPER gorgeous with her green eyes and red hair, but Mirai seems like she's got more of a character and personality built already. Ivory seems like the 'side choice' of Ebony, and I feel like she doesn't get much pictures and publicity like Mirai and the older models.
Can you describe Ivory's character to me? What she is, and the story behind her? I'd love to hear more about her. I also would like some advice on buying them, as if I've decided who to buy, I'd be a first time doll owner^^ Which one do you think will be better? Thank you in advance^^
Invaluable writing . This blog is so cute!! :) Kawaii!! BTW , if people is requiring to merge two images , my colleague saw a service here http://goo.gl/nhPTcm.

Hi Danny Choo, how are things? are you available to talk in these days? Im a big fan of your work :)
Wow, I can imagine Mirai looking down at me. I wonder what will she do if she sees me...
عوار بطن و سهال
I'll be there tomorrow ! ٩(♡ε♡ )۶
You are the man, Danny. We need the 'Mirai'.
I'm just another otaku who is passionate about anime and Nendoroids. ^^
I think the recording is done for the game, not the anime.
Mirai is ready to take off ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
Hopefully it will be the best AFA to date. XD
Looking forward to see Mirai joins Popura and co. in the 3rd season of WORKING!! anime. XD
Thank you! XD
AFAMY 2012 was also a great success, so congratulations to you too! :D
I am looking forward to the better and more epic AFAID 2013. :)
Thank you for visiting Nendonesia booth, Danny! XD
That's me! XD
I am really glaad that our community booth has attracted your interest, Danny! :D
Was planning to show you the airplane, Danny, but it seems that it would take too much of your time. Well ... maybe next time. xD
Love the illustration! XD
I wonder how Mirai would look like if she wears the yukata. XD
Attended, but could not stay until the end. Anyway, Culture Japan Night Jakarta Summer 2012 was really awesome.
Anyway, looking forward to Culture Japan Night WINTER 2012. XD
Just curious: Is it okay if I pre-order from local sellers? It's an online retailer though, so I also get a pre-order confirmation receipt from the store. XD
Danny-san: "Wait, there's a tiny dust on her ahoge."
This easily becomes one of the greatest news I've had for this year so far.
Thank you and see you at #AFAINDO, Danny-san. XD
Nendoroid Asakura Otome! ~(^_^~)

Allow me to introduce myself. I am Charlie, a freelance web programmer from Indonesia. I have been an anime otaku since junior high school - that is about 10 years ago. Yes, anime, manga, J-Drama, and J-Pop has been part of my lifestyle for about a decade now.
"Going to Japan". That simple 3-words phrase has been placed on top of my "someday" wishlist for years. As an otaku, paying a visit to Japan - especially Akihabara - is like a "pilgrimage", a mission of life. For that sake, I have been saving up my income as well as watching the international broadcast of NHK channel to learn more about Japanese culture.
Since about a year ago, I have setup a blog (Nendonesia.com) to cover about Nendoroid, since I have been taking interest on the adorable figures. I have posted articles regarding various figure-related events that took place in Japan like Wonder Festival and Dengeki FES - virtually everything that is related to Nendoroid. Although I have never attended such event myself (the articles I posted were based on reports from Japanese sites/blogs), I always want to pay a visit there. That is why I would prefer July (preferably during Summer Wonder Festival event) as the date of travel to Japan.
Recently, A reader of Nendonesia sent me a suggestion to create a series of articles about Travelling. The idea is to have Nendoroid as the "tour guide", explaining/showing interesting places around the world. What an awesome idea it is! However, I was still thinking about how I could execute the idea, and that is when I stumbled across this post (Free Tickets to Japan). I think this is a good idea to get started on the idea.
So if I were given this opportunity, I will bring along Nendoroid that represents the Japanese culture, such as Hakurei Reimu for shrine-related places, Hatsune Miku for Vocaloid-related culture, Gumako for figure-related stuff - visiting Good Smile Cafe is also one of my destination there. Obviously, I will also take a lot of photos there and post them on Nendonesia later on as "Nendoroid`s Travel Log" project.
Whether I am eligible for this project or not, I would like to say thank you for posting this announcement, Danny.
There's a typo in the "Vote" section. It should be "BRS Nendoroid" instead of "BRD Nendoroid". ^^ BTW I've already pre-ordered the Nendo.
N-n-nendoroids invasion! Ah ... so that's how Nendoron-san looks like ...
Thanks for the report, Danny! Looking forward to your next events.
