Full Action Nendoroid Archive
Posted by Leah Bayer on May 23, 2013 | 4 Comments
While we were all a bit stumped when Good Smile Company first announced Avengers figmas and Nendoroids, the line has been a big success so far. Big enough that Nendoroid Iron Man sold out in record time! A lot of folks missed out on him, and even US stores (which usually keep PVC figures in stock for months after they’ve flown off the shelves in Japan) don’t even have him. Well, don’t fear! There won’t be a re-release, but we’re actually getting something even better: Nendoroid Iron Man Mark XLII Full Action Version, from Iron Man 3!
This means that it’ll be an entirely new suit, the Mark 42, and we’ve got some other juicy news: unlike the first one, which only came with a Tony faceplate, this one has a whole head! Including hair! That’s right, it’s essentially Robery Downey Jr. the Nendoroid. Oh man, I just can’t wait for his release so we can do some awesome cosplay.

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?

I don’t usually complain about there being “too many” figures of a character. Companies generally know what they are doing, so there’s a reason we have 10 million statues of Miku, Saber, Tamaki and Kanu. I think we can now add Soniko to that list as well! But when companies recycle old ideas and parts for no discernible reason (well, except for money), I get a little miffed. If you remember my original post about this figure, I was none too pleased to see that Good Smile was doing ANOTHER Nanoha literally right after they announced a schoolgirl version of her.
Add to this the fact that she’s part of the Super Moveable/Poseable line, which I still don’t like very much, and this Nanoha Nendoroid gets nothing but dirty looks from me. And her faces aren’t even that cute–the smiling and fighting faces seem… off somehow. However, that smiling faceplate is super cute (though not exactly original). Orders will open on the 26th (with a November release, oh joy), and I will be very very surprised if we don’t get a similar Fate and Wonder Festival. Oh, and don’t forget that matching figma… *grumble grumble*

I think the unanimous thought on the announcement of Nendoroid Spider-Man was “huh?” It seems like a very odd choice for the line, but the first glimpse of him we got painted looked good. Now we’re getting a full reveal and I think my thoughts still remain at “huh?” It’s a cool idea, but he’s been added to the “Super Moveable”/”Full Action” line (or as Mikatan calls it the “Edition Series”), so there are a ton of joints. And since his design is really sleek, they stand out a lot. Added to the chubby proportions and it seems very odd.
He doesn’t come with that much either, just the cool city diorama we saw previously and some webs. Then again, there’s not really a lot they can do with the character. This “Hero’s Edition” is based on the new movie look, and I think the suit does look good, though overall I am still not sold on this piece. He’ll be going up for order next week, and hopefully the promo shots show us a little more!

It has been over a year since this figure was first shown off, and it is incredibly rare for a painted Nendoroid to just disappear like that. Some surmised that the Full Action/Super Moveable Nendoroid line had died after the unsuccessful feedback for Saber and HMO Miku, but here she is, finished and ready for order! We knew this would happen soon when she showed up at Wonder Festival but it’s still reassuring to finally see orders open.
She comes with some adorable accessories, like a sword, a bowl of rice (Saber loves to eat!), and her beloved stuffed lion. She also comes with a standard face, and angry face, and a Hetare version face! Plus she’s super poseable, and hopefully they’ve fixed the arms-constantly-falling-off problem that plagued the others. However, she’s a bit pricey: ¥5,000 as she is bundled with the “Nendoroid Complete File” which seems like it’s probably a book detailing previous Nendos which is kind of cool. The bundle will be released on May 23rd and it seems to be quite limited as it sold out on AmiAmi in minutes and vanished from Hobby Search. However, orders are open at Otacute and Big In Japan!
[EDIT] Thanks to commenter Riven we know that Saber is back up at Hobby Search!
