The Cutest War for the Holy Grail Ever

Fate/Stay Night Petit Nendoroids are on the way.


    
Just spotted these little lovelies on HobbySearch; it's a new set of Petit Nendoroids available from Good Smile Company, this time for Fate/Stay Night

As per usual for the Nendoroid Petit lines, the girls-- Saber, Rin, Sakura, Illya, and Rider, plus a pajama!Saber --each have an alternative face and a prop, from swords to kitchen supplies.
The set comes out in June, so with any luck you'll be able to buy 'em at the later summer cons-- but remember, they're trading figures, so unless you have a dealer who opens and labels the boxes for you, you'll have to keep buying until you get the girl you want.

Though from a purely aesthetic standpoint I'd be okay with any of these. I'd probably prefer not to get Sakura or pajama!Saber, just in favor of getting something a little outside the ordinary, myself.     
 
Still though, I think I'd pick Rider if I could. How often do you get a figure complete with magic summony-lookin' circle, after all. Who would YOU take home?

DAAWWWWW~~!! Wider's got such cute widdle Belerephon!
 
Jeez... how the heck did they manage to make Rider's Noble Phantasm of look cute? :D 
I mean, she stabs herself in the neck and sprays blood all over the place to activate it in the original, but they managed to make it look cute!
 
And considering the size, Saber's armor looks rather impressive... I think it's still obvious who I'd be buying box after box for until I got her though.

I want these and I don't even collect figures. >.<

@Slim: That's how it begins. Before you know it, you'll spend a little more for a Revoltech, then a little MORE for a Nendoroid, and before you know it you're spending $200 on this.
 
And then you buy a DSLR and become Kodomut.
