I have made myself a little deal to write each week from now on, I can’t believe it has been 4 months since my last post. So much has happened!
The most important event, of course, is me FINALLY receiving my Kirby Nendoroid from Play-Asia. I preordered him in DECEMBER and after many angrily worded e-mails, I am happy to report that he is finally here.
The little guy retails at around £30 and comes with four interchangeable faces and three copy abilities- sword, fire and star rod. Compared to the Isabelle Nendoroid , this felt soooo much easier to manipulate and change up. As Kirby is effectively a blorp (real word), his feet and arms attach on either side with magnets instead of clipping in and his face screws on and off easily.
The copy ability hats are also magnetised and easily fit onto Kirby’s little bald head, it is so easy to change his look around that it gets quite(very) addictive.
The quality as always is excellent. My only gripe was when using the base. It works in that you attach the rods to the base, and then add Kirby and in this case, the fire part in front of him. The hole in the fire attachment was far too small, and it did not slot on until my boyfriend forcefully and angrily managed to wedge it there. This was just for photo purposes and it fell off again shortly after. I would recommend that Good Smile rectify this with future models as it kind of ruins the fun when stuff doesn’t work as it should.
Despite that, the Nendoroid is one of my favourites so far. Kirby remains absolutely adorable, the expressions are perfect and I LOVE the magnet idea.
Now for the best part, the photos.
