Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Nendoroid round-up

Archer hits the mark... with a bunch of spears

I keep trying to tell myself that I'm done with Nendoroids but Good Smile Company just won't take "no" for an answer, as the company seems to constantly barrage us with cool offerings. To make matters worse, I find myself tempted by characters I've basically never seen before.

Hit the jump for some Nendoroid highlights from Wonder Festival 2014 Winter.

I've been planning for a while that Nendoroid Archer (Fate/Zero; a.k.a. Gilgamesh) might be my very last Nendoroid (unless Detective Conan full-scale Nendos were made, at which point all bets would be off). While we've seen bits of the character now and again, the full unpainted prototype was on display at WonFes.

Nendoroid Archer will apparently come with a Gate of Babylon accessory that plugs into a stand. Various weapons seem to plug into the Gate of Babylon (meaning they may be removable), thus recreating the effect of Gilgamesh's Noble Phantasm to spew forth weapons. As neat as Gilgamesh himself looks, this accessory is definitely a major selling point.

Of course, most people are probably more excited for the Wind Waker Link (grumble) first revealed at last Summer's Wonder Festival. Now that I've seen the painted Nendoroid, I can understand the appeal. I just wish he had a better-articulated body because poor Link hardly looks ready for adventure. But hey, he's still cute, right?

As previously noted, a painted Ryuko and unpainted Mako from Kill la Kill also made an appearance. I'm completely unfamiliar with the anime (it apparently involves living clothing), but I find the Ryuko unbearably cute.

Nendoroid Alisa (God Eater 2), previously teased at Tokyo Game Show last year, was on display as well amid a scenic ruins diorama.

Alisa was jointed at the event by an unpainted Katsuki Nana (God Eater 2). You'll notice that the diorama behind her features a ruined wall with broken windows.

As far as displays go, though, the Attack on Titan Nendoroids seem to have hit the jackpot with their town display. I love the style of the buildings.

As previously noted, there will be a schoolgirl Miku Hatsune Nendoroid to accompany the upcoming schoolgirl Miku figma (because you can never have too many schoolgirls?).

DRAMAtical Murder's Seragaki Aoba and Ren also made a showing. I love the sculpting on his headphones and jacket. Given that I'm not fond of his character design, I'm wondering if I'll still like how he looks painted.

Be sure to check out the gallery for additional photos of both the figures seen above as well as some others who didn't get a shout-out. Do you have a favorite here who isn't Archer or Link?

What is a Scarecroodle? ~It's a catchier and more memorable name than Scarecrow, which is generally taken anyway. Scarecrow, being a fear-related villain with a catchy costume, is probably one ... more   |   staff directory
