As excited as I was at the announcement of Monster Hunter Nendoroids, the final Male Hunter left me wanting. His color scheme was so… garish! But at WonFest they announced a Female version, and I still had high hopes. Well, it looks like they’ve paid off! While this Bario X version doesn’t have the gritty look I’d really love, her color palette is a lot more refined. She looks amazing, from her jointed ponytail to her awesome one-handed sword!
She’s part of the Super Moveable Nendoroid series, which means you can put her in some pretty cool poses. However, she’s kind of lacking in accessories: she only has two faces, angry and injured (which we saw in the Aoko preview). They do show her off with a cute chibi face, but it’s not actually hers. Of course she has her weapon as well, but that’s about it. At least we did get some very clear hints that this series is probably continuing, perhaps with a bowman even! I am liking the line even with its flaws, so let’s hope we see more of these little warriors in the future.
Female Hunter went up for order tonight, with a price of ¥4,000 and a January release. January seems to be getting a bit brutal already, it seems like each month is worse and worse! I wonder if it’s because figures are getting better or because prices are going up?
