The Deluxe Edition Link Nendoroid for Breath of the Wild is absolutely adorable, and who can pass up a horse? I sure can't.. in fact I've ordered Nendoroids for their animals alone. Regardless, he is a great addition to any Nendoroi collection. This version of Link only comes with two different face plates, but also contains the hood and normal hair set. There are so many little items and equipment pieces included that I didn't even have a chance to take pictures of them all yet!
Windwaker was one of ( if not the) first LoZ games I ever played. It quickly became on e of my favorites, and still is to this day. When the Link Windwaker Nendoroid came out I was super excited, and of course wanted other characters from the game as wel. I'm happy to finally have Zelda in my Nendoroid family as well!
Zelda comes with an extra set of hands for Link, as well as a sword and shield for him; this follows Goodsmile's standard process of including new parts for a past Nendoroid in newer Nendoroid boxes. Of course those parts have to be from the same series. It's nice, but at the same time it can be kind of frusturating if the other Nendoroid is a rare one. I believe this version of Link may actually still be available from varoious retailers - but potential buyers beware he is commonly reproduced in China and knock off versions are extremely easy to come by.
Regardless, I'm happy to have both Link and Zelda Windwaker Nendoroids!
On a side note, have I ever mentioned how much I despise Nendoroid stands?
The Kirby Nendoroid is a little bit different from your typical Nendoroid. Rather than having a face or feet that are connected by joints, all parts are magnetic - with the exception of twist on faces. I actually really liked this characteristic of the Kirby Nendoroid.
Kirby is an adorable Nendoroid, and comes with a ton of extra accessories !
I've gotten Figuarts characters before, but my collection is severely lacking in that department. After finding Blaziken for about $10 on Y!Japan, I decided it was time to expand!
He doesn't come with much - just a stand. However he is fully pose-able and even his fingers are jointed. The stand is pretty neat too!
Now I just need to figure out what I did with the Pikachu Figuarts figure I ordered last year about this time!
Though I've gotten figures from Phat! collabs before, this is the first larger figure I've gotten - not to mention first in the Parfom line.
I love the details, I love the faces, and I love how cute the characters are. The amount of accessories is awesome, and the sturdiness of the figure is great. However, there is something about the molding and the plastic that I just don't quite like. Immediately upon opening one of the small gold things on the extra set of hands came off with barely a touch. The parts were difficult to fit together, and the stand didn't want to work with the body.
I don't know, it's possible I just needed to be a little bit more forceful with everything, but I'm always afraid of breaking things. Either way I am happy with this figure, and I got her for a great price. However, I can understand why Parfom isn't a super well known brand yet. I would love to see it expand in the future, and I'll definitely be buying more if they come up cheap enough. The character design is great.
Also from the New Mystery of the Emblem Edition series is Marth! I had some problems with getting all of his parts to stay together. I have to say I love that GoodSmile has started to make Nendoroids with more joints (arms and legs are finally jointed) but it seems like some of the parts are just too heavy for those joints to support very well.
Regardless, Nendoroids are cute- so who really cares?
I know it's been forever since I posted about Nendoroids, but believe me- my collection hasn't stopped growing. I'm going to try to take the time to post many more Nendoroids over the next few months, so keep checking back! Not only do I have about twenty to thirty that I still need to take pictures of, but I have some on the way as well.
Anyway, here's Sheeda from Fire Emblem! Her exact title is "New Mystery of the Emblem Edition, and she comes with everything shown. Not many different faces for her, but I love that she comes with her own pet!
Sorry for the lack of pictures, I actually got Yu quite a while ago but haven't had the chance to add a post about him yet. More pictures will be posted soon. :)
I'm quite happy with him, though I am just a little dissapointed that all of his faces seem angry or upset. He's also a little smaller and more fragile than the average Figma, much like Chie and Yukiko.
I didn't have a whole lot of time today to set up Mario with much for different poses and such, but I made sure to take pictures of everything. :)
He's absolutely adorable! A little taller than your standard Nendoroid, his size might actually come as a surprise to someone with many Nendoroids. He comes in a little bit larger than normal box as well!
There are many parts to this Nendoroid set, including a large stand which can display blocks above Mario's head, and the backing cardboard in the box is actually meant to be taken out and used as a background for him!
This Mario is definitely geared more towards all Nintendo fans, rather than just Nendoroid collectors. I absolutely love the re-useable box (though I won't tear it apart or cut it like the instructions want, because I'm a box hoarder). It'll be great for future photoshoots!
On a side note- Ollie apparently isn't a big fan of Mario. It took him somewhere between ten and eighteen hours to decide for certain that he wanted to throw Mario and his stand off of my Nendoroid shelf. Never before has this boy gotten anywhere near my Nendoroids, but I guess the look he was giving Mario while I was unboxing him should've been my first clue.
So if anyone has any extra pieces like the little tabs that hold the blocks on, or the stands that hold accessories up that you don't need- let me know. I'll buy them from you. >.< Otherwise I'll probably just buy some Nendoroid More sets from Amiami and hope that those will work.
