What are they?

Nendoroids - Good Smile Company figures averaging around (100mm or 3.94in) where chibi cuteness meets posability. Tired of static figures? Nendoroids are the answer, featuring customization, poseability, and swappable parts making them more dynamic than most.

Because of their "chibi style," Nendoroids don't follow the exact proportions of their original characters and have their heads well oversized. This look gives the figures a more "cute feel" and their repertoire boasts of over 2000 models, spanning both iconic anime characters and unexpected non-anime favorites.

The Nendoroid series offers more than default variations like Doll, Sitting, More, and Plus, creating a universe of collectibles with something for every taste. Also due to the sheer variety of figures (some characters have a few different models) they are usually appended with a number like (#1234) working like an extra figure identifier. But we won't go in too deep of what they are if you want the full description visit the official GSC manufacturer site they have it covered. Here, we'll uncover the current trends in anime Nendoroids, checking forums, MyFigureCollection (MFC), and shops to guide you to what's trending.

Where to buy?

When searching for your next (or first) Nendoroid, it's crucial to be wary of where you source these adorable collectibles. Buying from sources other than official Japanese or reputable overseas sellers can be a risky endeavor. Even our Amazon links, though provided for convenience, should be approached with a small grain of salt.

Navigating the Amazon marketplace for Nendoroids may require a discerning eye. Our general rule of thumb includes checking the price – if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. A significant deviation from the competition's prices should raise eyebrows. Always scrutinize the ratings; stick to options with mostly positive reviews, preferably above 4.5, and with a substantial count of reviews (100 or more is a good benchmark). If a figure feels or looks "bootlegy," better avoid it...

For a more reliable shopping experience, long-running shops like SolarisJapan, cdJapan, playasia, have earned the trust of many collectors. These established sellers provide a safer haven for securing your beloved Nendoroid figures.

Sum Up

The popular figure like Jujutsu Kaisen, Chainsaw Man, and Frieren naturally take the stage as they are recent blockbuster anime. What maybe more surprising appearances are the classics which still linger especially Sakura Kinomoto, Zero Two and Guts. So did any of the popular ones was your pick too?In any case happy collecting!
