Nendoroid’s 10th Anniversary Next Nendo Survey
“Cute to look at, fun to play with and great to collect – Nendoroids!” , is what it says on the box of a typical Nendoroid figure, or Nendo for short. But first and foremost, what are Nendoroids?
According to the Goodsmile* website, these are “adorable palm-sized figures with a ‘chibi’ design” . To elaborate, they are cute, chibified forms of your favorite anime characters, superheroes or even celebrities, with interchangeable face plates, body parts, accessories and what not. They are simply so cute that people can’t seem to get enough of them, and included among those “people”, would be us here in the Tsunderebeats team!
As most of our friends know, we here at Tsunderebeats, have somehow been actively accumulating Nendoroids for the past 2 years. Though there are a lot of choices and characters and real celebrities alike being released (eg May’n, Nana Mizuki, TM Revolution and Linkin Park), there are still those that we secretly (or even shamelessly) want to have a nendo version of. But fret no more! If you are a nendo lover like us here at TB, here’s your chance to let GSC* know what you think and what you want, via Nendoroid’s 10th Anniversary Next Nendo Survey!
As part of celebrating 10 years of Nendoroid, GSC or Goodsmile Company, the manufacturer of nendos, is giving the fans the chance of voting for which character/celebrity/personality they want to be nendofied in the form of a survey. You too can let your voice be heard by filling up the survey form thru the link below:
On a more personal note, which character or personality do I actually want to be nendofied? For me, it will be my favorite Jrock girl group SCANDAL. I myself had started collecting nendoroids with the thought of customizing and creating SCANDAL nendos from other nendo parts (though I got hooked along the way and started collecting for real haha with the purpose of buying nendos not for parts but for the character itself). Here are some photos of my customized blonde Mami Sasazaki (from SCANDAL band). ^_^
Parts were taken from K-on nendos. As much as I wanted it to be accurate, I am not yet that brave enough to completely modify the parts by painting over them, coz I love my K-on nendoroids too! So I still have to get spare K-on bodies, face plates and even instruments from K-on or other nendos that may have the related accessories. But!!! If GSC releases my girls as nendos, that would save me a whole lot of trouble!
So there you have it! How about you? Are you also a fan of nendoroids? Do you collect them too? If not, do you think you might wanna try and get one? Or two? And which character or personality would you want to have their kawaii nendo version? Please share your thoughts with us by leaving a comment below! Ciao!
