If you are unsure what a Nendoroid is, don’t worry, I’ll explain. Basically, it’s an incredibly detailed figure that you can own. However, unlike other figures or statues, they actually have changeable parts, making them even more cool. Not only are they detailed, they really nail the essence of whatever character they’re embodying. The people behind the Nendoroids, Good Smile Company in Japan, revealed their latest crop at the Summers Wonder Festival in Japan, and many of the new Nendoroids are in fact Nintendo characters.
You have Young Link from Majora’s Mask, complete with sword and shield, Marth and Caeda from the original Fire Emblem game (complete with their weapons as well), Mega Man, Sword Kirby, and even N and Reshiram from Pokemon Black & White!
While you may think, “oh, it’s just another collectible…”, these things are incredibly popular and rare. The people at Good Smile sometimes don’t do long runs of these toys, so if you’re interested in getting one, you might want to jump on the bandwagon soon.
To be clear, there is no release for these Nendoroids just yet, but when they are, we’ll be here to tell you. Then watch as you try and pre-order them before they’re gone like the Amiibo’s! If you want to see more up close shots of the Nendoroids, click here.
