GSC is having a nendoroid photo contest
here are the entries:
Pics for various nendos released on Dec
why is red so damn xpensive , scalpers? low production ? I mean that nendo is appealing for Pokemon fans n shit but as a nendo is lackbuster , with only 3 accessories being the 3 pokemos it comes with .
Here's the picture without the general sign.
Also saw like early versions of Minna and Mio from SWs. Wonder what's happening with those.
I got gifted Beatrice and the vita game she is from. I'm really happy with both-- I've wanted her since she came out. Merry Christmas dudes.
Hey guys. I saw some anon post several threads ago about checking nendo genuinity. I read you have to look for a kadokawa sticker. I ordered this from an official partner shop listed, but I can't help feel paranoid.
I bought a Yoshino from the same shop and it has a kadokawa sticker (if it looks like this). Posting here for comparisson.
>no separate release
I can only hope with the many upcoming games and ports of this series is that she gains enough justification for a re-release
Take it out of the box, if it looks like complete shit it is a fake. The real nedoroids are made by Chinese adults, where as the fakes are easy to spot because they are made by the adult's children.
You're right anon
Added her in May and the reissue of Shizue (Isabelle) in April. also moved Shoyo & Tobio (jersey ver) to February as hey were delayed
In the last thread a fellow nendofag made a comprehensive nendoroid guide to bootlegs (I forgot to add it in the OP posts, but is now added for future threads)
any correction or improvement that need to be made is welcome
I thought Light had one, this one was on GSC's website. Was he made by someone else and then accepted in?
Here's my list. I actually just got my first 2 nendoroids 3 days ago. I gotta say these things are really adorable.
This is my list
Have a ton more wants but these are on the top of my list
Can't wait for next month, hoping for no delays
Where's the best place to sell a Nendoroid? I bought two Raiden's by mistake and I'm looking to get rid of him. Can't seem to find anyone on eBay selling him in the UK, so I might just put him up for £30.
money goes and comes M8 , just keep it sealed in box for trade sake in the future , Vidya Nendos tend to be cash cows , patience M8
As in they get rare and their prices go up considerably? Alrighty then.
Patchy doesn't have a sticker on her box
I would advise getting a bouncing flash too with TTL.
gear: Nikon D3100 + 85mm lens + yongnuo flash
That's really not enough...
This picture I just took with a Nikon D70 + 50mm 1.8 d + manual flash SB-15
Nikon D70 goes for less than 100 usd.
Lens 50mm 1.8d you can buy new for 110 usd or for around 70 usd used.
SB-15 I paid 17 usd.
4 AA eneloop + charger goes for around 25 usd.
CF card 4gb = less than 10 usd.
Can't get much cheaper than this.
For such and old camera, the quality is not that bad.
I bought Yukari and had a problem exactly like someone on MyFigureCollection.
>Is she supposed to come with 2 gaps?
>When I took her out, another gap in a little bag fell out.
>(She also came without a peg which you need to plug her into the stand but I fixed that with another Nendoroid standpiece~)
Which would be great except I don't have an extra stand connector bit. Did this happen to anyone else?
the current gang plus a Shimikaze arriving on Wednesday.
Anyone have the Mickey Mouse nendoroid?
Is it weird I want it? I'm not a particularly huge Mickey/Disney fan, although I respect Disney and its characters as much as the next guy, and I love KH, plus it looks nice so thinking of grabbing it.
To add to this, as much as I looove Nendoroids, typically my favorite figures are ones that represent the character in their actual dimensions... Of course I make some exceptions with Nendoroids, but ones like Mickey, Toon Link, Sonic, and Jack Frost appeal most to me.
Chino arrived today. Really early too.
Tippy has a little plastic tab that connects under him so you can fit it into the seam where the front hair piece and head connects so he actually stays on her head.
Also the table requires you to sort of fold the outer sides to fit the top.
And another Nendo to add to the table display.
I may need to message GSC about a missing part to her stand (her hair sort of blocks the peghole and uses this extra long piece to attach to the arm)
picked up Ryujo and a Nendo sleeping bag last night with some Xmas money.
I have a Kinokuniya by me here in NYC, in fact I work like a block away and I'm about to run there right now. They've never had the Nendo sleeping bags though. Maybe I can inquire about ordering some. Thank you for the info!
So, just went to the Kino - no sleeping bags in sight unfortunately, but was able to pick up some little Digimon by Megahouse!! I was super surprised, didn't know they sold these lil guys in blind box form, thought you had to buy the set.
The Kino isn't in a Little Tokyo (we have a China Town and Korea Town here, unfortunately AFAIK no Japan Town), but there are a few good anime shops throughout. Image Anime is only several blocks away, and they have a great selection, although mostly overpriced.
"I'd like a cappuccino please."
"Sorry I'm not for sale."
H-hey, any chance you can tell a fellow NYC anon where that kinokuniya is? I thought it was Cali only, did it get set up recently or something?
Imaginanime is all I got, and it's the worst.
Only if you tell me where you got your sleeping bags! Online? I suppose I can order some...
Kinokuniya has been around at least a couple years - it's right at Bryant Park... 6th ave between like 40th and 41st
Are the prices decent enough? I know import stores tend to jack the prices a bit but stuff like Image Anime is often a deal breaker if I can save cash just by ordering online and waiting a couple days.
I preordered every one of the Touken Ranbu ones on amiami! I can't help but get them all, would love to have a big ole swordboy campout. Sorry for the awful pic quality.
And huh, 6th Ave? That's near Nintendo World somewhat, right? Convenient.
I got a preowned Miho Nishizumi and I'm having trouble putting on her secondary hairpiece with the earmuffs; it doesn't sit flush with the other half of her hairpiece. Is this a common issue?
this, unless GSC is there
What's a good shipping method from AmiAmi that will get from Japan to midwest in ~3 weeks from now.
I'm out of town for the next 2 weeks and I gotta pay for my preorders now. But I don't want it to get there while I'm gone.
Is SAL Small Packet best for that?
Very glad that Tsurumaru comes with an entire extra head thanks to his hood so I can have twinsies. I have his unhooded head on a cheerleader body, but his pale skin makes it look a bit odd. Any suggestions for what he would look good on?
Why is Satsuki so god dang expensive , thats the last Nendo I need from Kill la Kill ...
>You don't need her she's the lamest out of the 4
She has the best base to display her power.
How many times will you ask
Just open your fucking nendos and you will see if its a bootleg
If there is no info about bootleg of the nendo on mfc THEN YOU WONT GET A BOOTLEG STICKER OR NOT
oh sweet, now i just have to wait for Cap
Rainy days make it hard to shoot well when I'm too lazy to set up a light, sorry for the quality.
Kogi cute though.
What trick do you guys use so the stands won't be visible/noticeable for photo shoots like in >>5358584?
[spoiler]Apparently in the OP photo only the center ones have non-visible stands.[/spoiler]
My preferred method is to take a picture of the scene you want with nendos and another without the nendos. Then using photoshop you erase the stands from one and the the other picture for the background. I suggest using a tripod for this.
Another method is to use the healing brush and clone stamp and photoshop the stand out.
This picture uses method 1.
So I preordered Anna on AmiAmi way back when. It's January now, isn't she supposed to be released soon? What happens now? This is the first time I'm buying any kind of figure or collectible.
I saw a tip on Tumblr where someone put the stand behind the figure without the base, in like a long "m" shape. The peg that would go into the base is angled so it's parallel with the ground for added support. Pretty much what OP's image is doing.
The tricky part is finding the right angle to not show the stand while not having the subject look directly at the camera. More often than not the stand's going to show.
What >>5366460 said is a good method too. The first one I mean.
I really like the monster hunter nendos but they are rather expensive. Lately I've been playing VC3 and wanting more combat capable nendos so I've been thinking of getting these two. I'm really liking imca's (left) weapon there.
Yea, from what I've seen they can go for 6-10k yen. Or $80-120 on amazon ca. I like the kirin and barioth ones most.
Those 2 are from valkyria chronicles 3. It was release on the psp back in 2011 and never got an english release. But there is a fan translation patch out there so I've been playing it.
Man, those look great. Another fan translated game... I'm tired of stuff not being localized, fuck the western gaming industry so much.
God Eater 2 translation would be nice...
I did a little body swapping and I think they turned out pretty good. If I had a nico head, I would have swapped her with eclair for the 3rd year trio.
Got Arthur from the Tick today.
He's so articulated he might as well be a figma.
All these Chino picutres are making me want her next.
Mini dump of me dicking around with my nendos. I got 3 sets of Calico Critters for Christmas so I really just wanted to mess around with those and my nendos.
The dentist tools actually fit in Mako's hand that she holds the bat in, which I found interesting.
I had the living room set on my wishlist and I didn't even realize that the fireplace could light up.
The dentist set, nurse set, and living room. I already own one of the bedroom sets, the icecream truck, and one of the bathroom ones.
I would 10/10 recommend the nurse set. It comes with a lot of cute accessories I didn't even realize were in there. My absolute favorite is the pill packages with blue and pink pills in them
Got the fundoshi boxes in today.
Sadly they completely lack articulation but they still have personality for sure.
(sorry about the sideways photo)
They have got some adorable little butts too.
tfw Cupoche figures are actually nendoroid upgrades , sad their line produces only mostly lame characters .
I dont considere them to be an upgrade, the proportions and joints are simply unappealing. Faces arent as good as nendos either. Neither am i a fan of "clothing" on pvc figurs.
>no male characters
They are different but also for different kinds of collectors.
To some people they feel like it, because they have a wider range of articulation, another thing that appeals to many is that you don't need all the limbs partswapping that usually nendos needs to change poses, also don't forget the magnet feets, these are God-tier
I consider the Cu-poche line as another line that combines pretty well with nendos, you can see them as big sisters for your nendos, you can swap faces and heads with them and as they sell the extra gym and swinsuit bodies, you can dressed them with fabric clothes, which is a big plus to many people
The only complain that I always hear is that, so far, is that there aren't any male character cu-poche, but that's something that could change in the future
Personally speaking I like both lines, so I will collect and enjoy both
Seems whining about it did the trick. Got these guys today.
Okay, yeah, we are interested in the original Mako nendoroid, which is rarer and more expensive than the new one. The original Mako is the one that was on the BST for a little bit, not the new Mako.
I've been trying them out too actually, they even scale with figmas and stuff, the only reason I haven't been using them constantly in my dolls house is I wanted it to look a little modern (or at least how home interiors look in shoujo animes)
Yeah, it's a sheet of foamy paper like you get at craft stores. Though normal paper, poster boards, and the like all get the job done too. Just attach it to a box or something behind your nendos, and let it curve beneath 'em.
Took a couple pictures of eclair happily riding harlan. I'll see about getting a few outside tomorrow.
Oh wow, I didn't even know how many were scheduled to be released this month.
Scalpers and very low number of stock, actually. They were literally sold out the day they were announced in Amazon.jp. I couldn't get it at all.
From what I heard, all 10k stock was gone the minute it hit the shelf. I live in NYC and it never even lasted on Pokemon Store shelf on Nintendo Tower, so yeah.
You can't miss it. It's literally 2 blocks from TSQ and right front of the Bryant Park. They're doing construction nearby so you might, now that I do think about it, but it's there.
look at the painting of the eyes and the confused faceplate, the eyes are pretty bad. not how the original one looks. plastic too shiny and confused faceplate hast the round eyes too high up.
speaking of bootleg mikus, I wish gsc would make a miku like this
Hey since we're talking about Mikus is 2.0 still the best version of her normal costume?
Just making sure I didn't miss a newer version on the chart somewhere.
I feels kinda wrong to not have a Miku in my nendo collection since she is a big part of the line's success.
All around me are familiar faces
Worn out faces
Worn out places
I know! They really need to make him.
I also hope for Gokotai, Ishikirimaru and Yamatonokami nendos. And two of them got scales so would be silly if they dont annouce them as nendo too.
Metroid would be amazing. Especially if we got Samus in the fusion suit.
I love collecting all of something, as bad as that is, but petits don't appeal to me in the same way. Nendos, I can pose like crazy sometimes, while petits are just so small and as far as I know, they only have the head joint, right?
I don't hate them though, hope fans of it get more!
My main appeal is they're tiny, and cheaper. I'm not super into posing and taking photos of them like it seems collectors do. I just like figures here and there. I have a Len and he can move his head, shoulder joints, waist, and his legs.
Not that guy but I bet he ordered Kirby and Megaman. I bet they'll be fine though
There was guy who did say he likes the look of bootleg one. He says she have more crazy eyes.
I usually just preorder nendos as they come out and I want them, so I don't have a lot of wished... Those are mostly ones that came out after I got into buyfagging or exclusives I didn't care an extreme amount to get at the time.
I'm upset I can't really pick a favorite KanColle girl (besides Hoppou) to get now because I have her. Yukikaze when?
I uh... I got this.
I wish it had more props.
I got a prop for her, it's an MP5K with a broken trigger guard.
I just got Nico because she's my favorite.
I'm trying to place a preorder on the GSC site, but when prompted to choose a shipping method nothing loads, and I can't continue from there. What should I do?
Raiden had a good year in figures in 2015 and the nendo closed it up nicely.
I'm really hoping Genos releases this year.
I would like more MGS, especially Raiden, and also Steven from Pokemon.
I wonder how wishful thinking it is to want from Final Fantasy, since, not counting the Cloud amiibo, SE doesn't give out their license.
Here's an fun idea I had. Get some nendos from 1 series then head swap them with nendos from other series and have a sort of cosplay photo shoot. The more nendos you have, the more fun it could be.
Got Saber Lily not too long ago, I really like her, her hair looks very nice, and she has some cute expressions.
I also got these two back when they came out in November. I don't know why I haven't opened them yet. Raiden looks fun, especially all the accessories, and Umi is really cute. I'm not the biggest Love Live fanatic but I think her training outfit is nice and she's my favorite.
Video game nendos are my favorites by far. I would love more nintendo characters, which I'm sure we are bound to see in the future. If we could get any of the princess characters (peach, rosalina, zelda, etc) I would be completely thrilled.
>praying for the ability to see pantsu
And I will always hope for Mother characters, Ness preferable but Ninten and Lucas are also acceptable.
I want more MGS nendos: Liquid, Psycho Mantis, mgs1 versions preferred but mgsv would be awesome too, Sniper Wolf, mgs3 Ocelot but any version would be good too, The Boss, The Sorrow actually I would love a petit set of the Cobras if not a full nendoroid size set, a real big boss nendoroid, mgsv Kaz. Old Dave would be cute, also Otacon.
I also need more swords in my life. Iwatooshi and Sayo preferably, as well as more Samonjis to be tragic together. Nakigitsune.
Kowan Seiki and Hikoujouki Seiki to hang out with littlest sis.
Ness, the Subway Masters from Pokemon, Steven Stoned and Wallace form Pokemon, Ruby but a Pokemon Special version for maximum cuteness and accessories. It's reaching really far but a General Guy from Paper Mario with a nendo sized tank would be optimal af.
Nendos have like endless potential so I have so many ideas.
dont totally understand why does Good smile cant produce some Nintendo nendos that would sell like hot bread...
Zelda , WW zelda/tetra
Samus , ZSSamus
Peach , Rosalina , Daisy
What does she normally sell for? Where is the seller located or where will the package be shipped from? Also check MFC if any bootlegs exist. But in my (limited) experience, amazon is pretty good about legit products.
Is the Solid Snake nendo rare or something I got one months after release because Amiami seemed like the couldn't get rid of him and now I see him going for 11k yen
maybe they are kinda rare/low stock now , do the Metal gear Nendos have bootlegs? maybe ill get a raiden or SSnake
thank you based BST, got regular Mako in today. can't wait to use her faceplates with Fight Club spec
are they available anywhere? I've been searching for one to use with Miho
any of you interested in the following Nendos:
>2 Star Goku Uniform Mako
figured I'd ask here before posting them in thr BST. Trimming my collection and saving up for Red
supposedly it was a limited run , now they are skyrocketing in price bc Smile doesn't has any left. . .
I took some pictures today and thought I'd share a few that turned out alright. I'd like to get some pictures outside but I'm lacking inspiration at the moment.
I'm thinking I should have gotten a picture from behind nozomi when she's closer to millhi.
And one of leo relaxing in the sun.
Guess your luck is on your side this time.

I fucked up combining this with my Hestia nendo and my VAH Nami holy shit
Why did they have to make such an annoying girl such a great Nendo.Now I'm slowly convincing myself that she's actually likeable, just so I can buy this... I never thought of her as "worst girl" but she has been pretty low on my list... Goddamn you GSC and your SHIT.
I need Kouwan so much... I want to see how they do massive nendo tiddies honestly. I think it'd be super adorable.
I really want her to have a super innocent/upset face she seems so pure.
I'm glad they made Hoppou because she's my daughteru, but I need more abyssals... Airfield please based GSC.
I'm absolutely retarded and can't make sense of the instructions for Hoppou's artillery and stand. How are you supposed to attach the black part to the stand?
I used the mini arm to attach to a peg hole on the back of her artillary thing. The artillary part has a joint you can attach to her peghole.
Sooo, silly question perhaps...
I ordered Mega Man and Kirby together on Goodsmiles site.
Now, I suppose Megaman is being shipped soon, and who knows when Kirby will get out...
So what the fuck? Do I just not get my Megaman for a while? Or do they split orders at all? Am I basically fucked? Should I just not pay Goodsmile when they request, and go and order from Amiami right now...? Or is there a way to solve this?
I suppose i'd like to stick with my GSC order if I can get him ASAP, due to the convenience and the bonus, but wouldn't mind switching if it means getting him much sooner.
I hardly preorder off GSC honestly but I remember my WF order was shipped out altogether in one package since everything was coming out that month. They'll probably do the same seeing Kirby and Megaman ship this month. Not unless Kirby gets a late delay for some reason.
If I were you just pay your orders and be done with it. Message GSC or find more info out on shipping from their site if you're curious.
yeah, just messaged GSC just asking about what would happen, and if there is any possible way to split the order if the Megaman would be delayed due to Kirby.
however, i suppose i'll wait and see if Kirby is announced to ship this month still. hopefully.
You could've read their FAQ nigger.
They automatically split shit if it isn't in the same month, and you get free shipping on the ordered that was delayed. Don't be a scum and pay for whatever you ordered.
Wait people don't consider Hayano the worst?
I... I like Kotori.. and Maki...
She showed up in the mail this morning..posting from my phone so sorry if upside down. Excited to display her tonight. Also she was $23 with free shipping so I'm pretty happy with the purchase.
>FLCL nendos when?
If that happen it would be nice, or Cu-poches would be nice too
Dammit this was too cute, I need my nendo kirby!!
Also curious for discussion, do you think kirbys price will sky rocket after sales? Not that I would sell mine but I've never understood why the market is the way it is.
Maybe after a few weeks? Not sure if he meets the same level of popularity of others like Isabelle as a video game themed Nendoroid.
Though the Twitter video convinced me and I'm not taking the chance that he'll be 9k+ on the aftermarket. They really nailed the soft look of Kirby
>samus with removable helmet head which you can swap for her regular head with ponytail
I just started doing that. It was a thing before with Figmas and SHFs. I'd like the design of a character or something and then go check out the source material. Now I'm starting to do it with Nendos. Jesus God Mary and Joseph help me. My first aesthetic impulse is on its way.
If this thread has taught me anything its that nendos are a slippery slope. Went from 1 to 10 in a couple months with lots of 2016 preorders. Send help..
Last one I promise -- Lily and Charlotte are definitely homies. I'm impressed by how posable Lily is and her paint job is pretty stunning.
And i thought having 11 and 4 preorders was a lot
It's fucking perfect. I need this in my life right now
All I can think of when I see this is how cool a hermit purple would be for a nendo
How the hell are you getting that turret to stand up with out the mini support base?
The peg that goes into the arms in the back doesn't go in all the way, and keeps slipping out due to the weight and shit
>Buying anything from Kinokuniya
>Getting ripped off
There are literally Nendos that released years ago still for sale there today. Step your game up weeb.
