  • How is a NENDOROID Made? | Behind the Scenes at Good Smile Company (via Crunchyroll)
    https://youtu.be/JFCPqLmJraI

    Crunchyroll goes to the Good Smile Company's office in Tokyo and their factory in Tottori to meet the people responsible for designing, sculpting, painting, and packaging the world famous Nendoroid. We even see a breakdown of the Rising of the Shield Hero's Raphtalia Nendo got made!

    Comment


    • The Winter Wonder Festival is up tomorrow, and some Nendoroids are already being leaked out. Among them are Miku Nakano of The Quintessential Quintuplets and Lio of Promare, and while others were leaked out it's not so obvious who they are. We will all find out in about 12 hours or so, but in the meantime, I'll make some predictions as to who I think will be announced as Nendoroids this weekend. I will make 10 predictions as to which shows will have new nendos coming.

      https://mikatan.goodsmile.info/en/20..._source=social

      1. Yachiyo, Rena, Momoko, and Tsuruno, Magia Record
      It's pretty obvious that at least Yachiyo will get announced. Iroha was already released quite some time ago, and it's only natural that her fellow comrades in this show get nendos as well.

      2. Asuka (Underworld Version), Sword Art Online
      It's Sword Art Online, and I wouldn't be surprised if more Underworld characters are announced. But at the very least the latest version of Asuna will be a Nendo.

      3. Zenitsu, Inosuke, Shinobu, and Giyu, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
      Tanjiro and Nezuko are out now, and given the show's insane popularity, there's no doubt that Tanjiro's other comrades are coming out. But the one characters I would really love to see coming out is Shinobu as this is one character Good Smile can have some fun with.

      4. Shuka, Darwin's Game
      Characters from Aniplex shows have a better chance of getting released as Nendos than other shows, and seeing that this show has a bigger than average profile that I can certainly see Shuka becoming one, especially since Good Smile can do quite a few things with her chain power.
      .
      5. Hanako and Nene, Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun
      With the manga being well-received that there's a pretty good chance to see these two becoming Nendos.

      6. Enterprise and others, Azur Lane
      Azur Lane is a popular mobile game, and with the anime having come out, I expect there to be quite a lot of them coming out when all is said and done, starting with the MC Enterprise.

      7. Quetzalcoaltl, Fate/Grand Order
      FGO nendos are always coming out, and pretty much everybody in the anime can expect to get it. Ritsuka, Mash, Ishtar, Ereshkigal, Merlin, Caster Gil, Ana, and Da Vinci are already out. Of the other characters in this show, Lucoa is one most likely to get one.

      8. Legoshi and Haru, Beastars
      Seeing that Beastars got a second season means the show did quite well in the first season, and it's an amazing show. Of course, lots of people have yet to watch it because Netflix has it, but knowing how well-received it was that I'm expecting to see a good number of nendos from this alternate version of Zootopia come out going forward. Legoshi and Haru are the two main leads, so I can see them getting nendos here and the other characters at a future Wonfes.

      9. Main, Ascendance of a Bookworm
      This is one I'm definitely hopeful for as this show got a second season and there's a lot of love for this character. Plus, there are lots of props Good Smile could produce for this book-starved biblioholic.

      10. Mile, Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?
      Seeing that Mile herself made Nendo-like figures in the show that it's only natural that she would be coming out as an actual Nendo.

            • While the Winter Wonder Festival has been cancelled, there will still be a virtual version starting on February 11. Seeing that the main purpose of WonFes is to showcase figures that are coming out that this aspect of the event can still take place, just like with the summer version. And as such, Good Smile has put out their event-exclusive figures:

              Snow Miku 2021 Nendoroid: Glowing Snow Version
              Aqua (Konosuba) Nendoroid: Winter Version
              Aqua (Konosuba) Figma: Swimsuit Version
              Ultraman Ace Suit Stealth Version
              DLX Bumblebee Gold Version

              This list is possibly incomplete seeing that there's usually about 8-10 figures while there's also supposed to be a Figma version of the Snow Miku. But because of the pandemic that the number of new figures has been downsized.

                • Announced at the Good Smile panel at AX Lite, here are the figures that have been announced:

                  Nendoroids
                  Natsu Dragneel and Lucy Heartfilia, Fairy Tail
                  Monika, Doki Doki Literature Club
                  Miroku and Sango, Inuyasha

                  Harmonia Dolls
                  Holo, Spice and Wolf

                  Nendoroid Select (chosen by English-speaking fans)
                  Phoenix Wright and Miles Edgeworth, Ace Attorney

                  Pop Up Parade (bargain scale figures)
                  Satoru Gojo, Jujutsu Kaisen
                  Yasuke, Yasuke
                  Ryuko Matoi, Kill la Kill
                  Eren Jaeger, Attack on Titan
                  Naruto Uzumaki, Kakashi Hatake, and Sasuke Uchiha, Naruto

                  Scale Figures
                  Sakura Kinomoto: Always Together Pinky Promise Version, Cardcaptor Sakura

                  Hidden Figure
                  Ryuko Matoi, Kill la Kill (Souvenir Jacket version)

                  Quite a lot of detail with that Sakura scale fig, and I'm really digging the slipcover for the Ryuko one as well. As much as I want to have them all, my shelf space says otherwise, and not to mention my wallet.
