    Nendoroid is a brand of small plastic figures, created by the Japanese Good Smile Company. http://www.goodsmile.info/year/gsc/eng/product/category/nendoroid/all/all/all/1.html

    Nendoroid figures are usually replicas of an anime or manga character and are commonly used as collectors items or toys. They are roughly 10*cm (4*in) in height,
    depending on the character they were made to look like. Normally they are made in a chibi or super deformed style, with a large head and smaller body to make them look cute.

    Their faces and body parts are movable and interchangeable, giving them a range of different expressions, postures and items to hold.

    Nendoroid figures have been made based on characters from anime and manga series like Kannagi, Lucky Star, Death Note, Haruhi Suzumiya, Fate/stay night,
    as well as characters from the synthesizer software Vocaloid

    here are some examples...
    Nendoroid Miku Hatsune

    Nendoroid Yoko from "Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagaan"

    Nendoroid Drossel

    (She has battery powered Light-Up eyes)(I want :D )
    [​IMG]
    Nendoroid Nozomu Itoshiki From "Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei"
    [​IMG]
    --------------------------------
    I just recently got this one...
    [​IMG]
    Nendoroid Raspberyl from the PS3 game "Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice"
    and I love it :D 

    has anyone else seen/bought these kind of figurines?
    if so...what is your opinion?

    My mom has recently started collecting the Nendoroid Petit line and are buying them by the case when they're released, and I always get the doubles :D  Really charming things. So far I have both variants of Minami from Lucky Star and the flying Ryuk from Death note. Looking forward to what I'll get from the Vocaloid box, haha :lol

    Awwwwww, they look so huggable. : D

    And LoC Soundwave, your mom collects toys, too? That's one awesome mom. My mom only collects shot glasses, and spoons.

    Yup, she watches anime, reads manga and collects nendoroids :lol  She's especially fond of Lucky Star and Disgaea. Though I think the collecting part may have been thanks to my influence once I started buying Figma. Though one of her "grails" is the chogokin USB Tachikoma. She's been drooling over mine ever since I got it.

    But that's enough off-topic from me :)

    a pair of Glasses and two alternate faces/two alternate arms.

    Now I've definitely got to get me some Nendoroids. Anyone know of some good online stores that sell these?

    How the heck do the new Nendoroid's bend their elbows? I don't see any joints! Or are they pop on and off things?

    Ah. I was thinking about it, ever since I saw one of them with no joints. "How the heck do they get those poses?"

    Then today... I suddenly just seemed to upchuck that suggestion, like literally out of nowhere. And I was right. o_O ;;

    Anyways, yeah... they look cute. But I would rather get Deformover Kamen Rider. :p

    just bought 2 KOs Nendoroid today (Mio Akiyama and Death Note L ), i don't usually buy KOs but the real thing is too expensive. QCs is passable, just loose neck joints and sloppy paint apps here and there. also Mio's eyes should be blue but they are brown.

    I'll probably wind up getting Rin, maybe Len too if I've got the money to spare. I like this year's Miku because it's a big change from the past few years which were, "Here's white miku!" "Now she has a scarf" "This time she's got a jacket too!".
