We’ve put together a blog about all the new Nendoroid news and releases we’ll hopefully be seeing this year. We’ve also added some details about our pre-order service so read on to the end if you’re interested!
If you didn’t know already, Nendoroid is a brand of figures created by the Japanese Good Smile Company. Nendoroids are usually based on the characters from popular anime, manga or video games and have become highly collectable due to the high quality of the figures and the limited amount of them that are created. Nendoroid figures are also loved by fans because of the ability to interchange faces, hair, body parts and props with other character in the Nendoroid series.
As well as Nedoroids being created for popular Japanese media we’ve seen a lot more figures released for Hollywood films, disney characters and western games and it looks like 2017 is going to be an amazing year for Nedoroid collectors (but not so good for their wallets).
At Japans Wonder Festival figure event earlier this year we got the announcement that goodsmile will be teaming up with Disney/ Pixar again to bring us a huge range of Nedoroids modelled on some of our most loved Disney classics including Winnie-the-Pooh, Ariel, Jack Skellington, Jack Sparrow, Tinker Bell, Rapunzel, Belle, Sulley, Mike & Boo from Monsters, Inc. and even Woody & Buzz from Toy Story! It looks like release dates for these Nedoroids will be announced at some point this year with them being release at different times from the end of 2017 and throughout 2018.
We also got a surprise announcement in the form of the lovable British hero Tracer from Blizzards hugely popular first-person shooter, Overwatch. Good Smile have dabbled with bringing characters from popular eSports games into the Nendoroid family, most notably was the extremely limited release of the Ahri Nendoroid from League of Legends. With the release of The Tracer Nendoroid in September and the announcement there will be a Mercy and Mei Nendoroid coming soon as well as releases from other popular online games like DOTA 2 on the way, we hope this is just the beginning of the awesome lineup Good Smile Company have planned for us.
