I own the figma Drossel and I'm sorely disappointed this is the only one that doesn't light up. Though, if I wanted to, I could use my prowess electrical skills and make it so.

I like the format of manly and cute. It works well. Just please, for the love of the universe, stay away from Hello Kitty. That's all I can hope for.

This is just my guess, but I got the feeling that Drossel might be popular because of her strong resemblance to Hatsune Miku. The first time I saw her I thought she was supposed to be some kind of robo-Miku and I had to double-take to remember the existence of the fireball anime.

oh hay


I guess this one really was unpopular: it's two years old and doesn't have an entry in the encyclopedia.

We saw several different versions of this character while we were in Japan a couple of weeks ago. It took me three stores to find out it was something from Disney, but had no idea what show it was from.

"Mecha-Miku" is what I thought when I saw this.

Nice review. It's hard to not be tempted into collecting Nendoroids, but I've resisted so far!

There's actually two figma of Drossel, the second is a winter version that comes with a DVD.



Turned out on the final version her scarf and hat were hard plastic and the snow flake pattern was a sticker sheet which really pissed off a lot of people. Laughing

I'd never even heard of this show. When this review went up, I had to check it out. Shame it wasn't more popular, I thought it was hilarious.

Amen. I loved this show. Its short, innocent nature made it so adorable, i couldnt help but fall in love with it.
But its true that its no-storyness kind of shoots it in the foot since you really want to know more about that world of theirs that keeps being mentioned in the show.

I loved the way it was, but maybe if they redid the show somehow...

But I digress, adorable chibi Drossel is adorable.

Im really tempted to buy one of the normal scale ones. (aka non nendoroid) her robotic sleek design really entices me so much. (I myself also have a weak spot for robots. Anime hyper)

Nendoroids are so cute it's hard to not want one. Anime hyper 45$ is cheap for that toy. It totally has blown my mind away, K.O. on the first punch xD!

Can't believe Disney even made the series. Thought it was too loli-moe-looking for their overprotective brand. Laughing
