SDCC 2016: Good Smile Company

Good Smile Company doesn't usually do Comic Con as WonFes is usually the same weekend. However it seems like they're starting to stake out some territory at SDCC. Their booth was pretty small and tucked away - not what you'd expect from pro...

Nendoroid Kirby photo

Eat up this Nendoroid Kirby gallery

Here's a pointless question for you: what makes this Kirby figure a Nendoroid (aside from obvious branding considerations)? Would a figma Kirby or, heck, a Hot Toys Kirby look any different? These are the kinds of things I ask myself after ...
