Tomopop Review: Good Smile Company's Nendoroid Tomoko Kuroki

Sep 10 // Vanessa Cubillo
Figure Name: Nendoroid Tomoko KurokiFigure Maker: Good Smile CompanyRetail Price: ¥3,619Available at: Plamoya | Amazon This was actually my very first Nendoroid figure, so everything about it was new to me. Let's start with the box. I love this! It's clean, simple, and shows me exactly what I'm getting with this figure. I also love the use of lime green and pink on the box to go with the white background.  When you open the box, the figure and all the accessories are packaged together in one plastic tray. So Tomoko comes with two alternate faces, an extra hair style, five additional arms, three additional hands, five accessories, and a stand.  The Tomoko figure comes dressed in her pale yellow school uniform. The hair piece on her shows her bangs covering half her face, and her face is her normal looking face. Of course, this is only normal for her! Any other character and I would call this a tired face, but Tomoko always looks like she's lacking sleep. As I mentioned before, this is my first Nendoroid figure, so I got to discover all the features the figure has to offer. She's fully articulated at the neck, arms, waist, and legs. The head is very heavy so she can't stand on her own, but the stand is great.  I have never been a fan of Tamashii Nation's stands. They try to offer innovative poses with their flexible stand, but I find it flimsy and complicated. However, the Nendoroid stands pull this off. It's made from thick plastic that is sturdy enough to support the weight of the figure, and flexible enough to pose your figure easily.  So of course Tomoko has another hairstyle. This one is more sloppy and wild with ends sticking up in various places. For some reason, mine came with a giant purple dot on the right corner. Tomoko also has two alternate faces and the clear favorite is her freakout face.  This face is probably all too familiar for anyone who has ever suffered social anxiety. Of course this expression is usually mentally expressed and not physically. With her accessories, you can make Tomoko freak out about a lot of things. She can tear up a paper with two alternate hands in place. Where did that paper come from? Maybe from her backpack she also comes with that you can place on her back. Since she comes with five extra arms, and three extra hands, you can get her to hold all her accessories just as you like. So one very interesting accessory Tomoko comes with is a personal massager, but when I originally opened it, I thought it was a microphone. Never in my life would I have thought an anime figure would come with a vibrator! I actually liked it better when I thought it was a microphone. Come on, Tomoko trying to sing karaoke would be gold! That's the beauty of imagination, I can do whatever I want with my figures. Well, if you want to use the personal massager as intended, that's where Tomoko's last interchangeable face comes in. I don't like to be vulgar, so let's call this her aroused face. Although her blushing looks like she's been slashed across the face to me. Another accessory she comes with is a pair of ripped I probably should have caught on to the massager sooner.  Her last item is a risqué video game clearly for the PS3, but you know it's the PM3. I have to say, Good Smile Company makes great accessories for their Nendoroid figures. Tomoko truly is a unique character,  and each accessory is a reflection of that. I have never met a character as weird and unique as Tomoko from WataMote, and I think this figure does a great job at capturing that. Also, since this is my first Nendoroid figure, I'm more than impressed with the quality and look of the figures in this line. I want more!  [Thank you so much to Hobby Link Japan for providing us with this review sample!]
