Nendoroid Junko Konno (Zombie Land Saga)
Junko Konno is coming! Increases the likelihood of getting all of Franchouchou. Including THE LEGENDARY TAE YAMADA
Amaterasu? Why yes, I think I will.

My friends recently got me into arknights, those arknight nendo announcements are looking pretty good right now... also I have to keep an eye on Amiya!
Used the Studio series background for a nendo pic:
Just got nendo Shinkalion Miku.
Why does she have an angry face on the back of her head?
Great now I can't unsee hahaha!
Didn't know we had a nendroid thread, here's my HC Nendroid with a ML Spiderham head, I also wanted a better Spiderham and Nendroid delivered the perfect body
I don't play Kancolle but I really like the designs of the girls so I got my second Kancolle nendo today.
For those who don't know, Goodsmile put up convention exclusives. I waited to put up the link when they actually fixed the system. It's fixed now, but slow.

Just happened upon the Miles Morales DX Set on Amazon Japan for 2520 yen plus shipping, shipped and sold by Amazon.co.jp: https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B07VVC5KGN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Decided to order one because I figured why not at that price since you essentially get two figures in one box and I like the character.
i've got the Nendoroid Doll series Miku pre-ordered for DEC. 2020.
a good ways off, i know, but she's just one of those sorts of releases THAT I SIMPLY KNEW I HAD TO HAVE UPON FIRST SIGHT;
Pre-ordered W from Arknights. I really liked her design in-game so I can't wait to have this figure.
Miles Morales for roughly $40 shipped, very tempting. Would have been perfect if they had given the option to have a casual cloth Miles Morales instead of the plain-Jane Spider-suit.
My eldritch Outer God can't possibly be this cute
Ygnailh... ygnaiih thflthkh'ngha...
Hey everyone, I haven't typically bought Nendroids, but now there's a BB and OP one coming out and seeing that sticker price for the size of the figure (yeah yeah I get it, but still wasn't expecting it. maybe more like 30 to 40).
What is the best way to buy them? Is it through local good smile online retail I guess? hard to imagine that importing etc would be cheaper, but it does work that way with some other brands *sometimes*
It kinda varies from figure-to-figure. Some of these figures based on Western licenses have actually been imported by Target in recent years (the Overwatch ones spring to mind). Ordering through Good Smile Shop directly is usually one of the more expensive options, because they sell at full price rather than at the discounted prices you usually see at Japanese retail sites, but sometimes there'll be exclusive accessories only available through them. Japanese retailers usually offer the best price tag, but you'll have to deal with the shipping costs, while Western online retailers are usually marked up considerably, but may offer cheap or free shipping.
So I opened Jasmine last night. Few thoughts:
These things come apart pretty dang easily while getting posed, I suppose that's better then being too tight, but yikes on suddenly losing parts if not careful.
Truly adorable, tiny angry expression on Chibi Princess is adorbs.
It seems like these are designed to pop apart fairly easily, and everything looks like it just pegs in and can easily come apart, so, can you mix-and-match kind of like Hasbro's crazy line where they tried to mash heroes with Star Wars? I mean could you theoretically make a Princess Ariel in Jasmine's outfit? A Mermaid Jasmine using Ariel's parts? These are highly versatile if so and I welcome the cute customizable factor.
But I digress, bring on the next order. Not entirely a fan of the stand with Jasmine though, her back-mount piece is a tad awkward to allow for any decent poses. It took me a few minutes to realize Jasmine came with an extra bent at the knee leg too, not super obvious.
She's got all that super awesome personality though in such a tiny package. Ariel and Belle are being re-issued next year, any other Princesses in the works? Wouldn't say no to Tiana, Elsa, Rapunzel, Anna, Mulan, Pocahontas, Snow White, Cinderella and Aurora either. I need more Disney based figures in my collection and these hit that sweet spot quite nicely, don't take up too much space, are quite stylized and can be given endless options for whatever the whim might strike you.
Also like that they include a spare joint, but how often do the necks break on these things?
