Orchidseed (manufactured by GSC) is going to release the Nendoroid No.70 On-chan ( 着ぐるみonちゃん ) action figure from the HTB Mascot Character. Will be released in August 2009. Around 120mm tall, 3,000 yen.
Believe it or not, this mascot from HTB ( 北海道テレビ放送, Hokkaido Television Broadcasting Co.,Ltd.) actual has it’s own 26 episodes anime. I never see this thing On-chan before until I saw the poster in WH9. I was like “who’s gonna buy this weird thing?”, and I’m still wondering the same thing. On-chan looks cute in the anime, but the real thing is horrible IMO. =P
|——Description from Manufacturer——
HTB’s mascot is on his way to being a Nendoroid!
Soon after being created as the Hokkaido TV (HTB) macsot in 1997, the adorable on-chan started to regularly appear on the popular variety show ‘Suiyou dou deshou?’ as a dressed up character – and now that on-chan is on his way to becoming a Nendoroid!
The hands and feet make use of movable joints allowing for more dynamic poses to be taken, and various additional parts are also included allowing for even more ways to enjoy the cute mascot. If you are an on-chan fan, this is one figure you can’t be without!
