Nendoroid Clear!Nendoroid Clear!

MagusfiguresMagusfiguresIl y a 3 ansReview
Hello hello! I was not expecting to get to write another review again so soon, but as luck would have it, a figure I've been waiting on for a long time FINALLY arrived! it's been 3,000 years

Today we're going to have a look at
Nendoroid Clear by Orange Rouge!
ITEM #348411


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856522.jpeg
I’m so, sososo happy to have clear finally ;_; Ever since Aoba arrived I’d been waiting on the edge of my seat for one of my favorite dmmd love interests to be made into a nendo, and when Clear was announced I was over the moon! Now we just need Mink… not that i have high hopes of that happening lmao

I had a longer wait than most people because Tokyo Otaku Mode had to wait for him to get to their US warehouse before shipping him to me. Needless to say, I won’t be preordering from them again (this is the second time this has happened), but that’s another rant for another time.

For now, let’s take a look at Clear!

As you can see, he came with a box inset that looks like his room, as seen in DMMd Re:connect. I’d planned to use Aoba’s room again until I remembered he came with his own room lmao

Here’s how he looks from the side. I was apprehensive about attaching him to his stand bc I’ve had such a lousy time with many of my previous nendoroids, but he went onto his stand fairly easily. Whew!

From the back! His fluffy hair has been sculpted perfectly. I feel like newer nendoroids have been just as interesting from the back as from the front! (my first was Date Masamune, who has boring hair… I guess it’s supposed to be under the helmet all the time, but w/e)

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856528.jpeg
Even tiny details, like the straps on his boots, have been reproduced in Nendoroid size.

Closeup of his front. I love how all the buttons pop out, and how the outer buttons even have tiny X’s in the centers. Additionally, his scarf is removable, so other nendoroids might be able to make use of it too.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856582.jpeg
I was never much of a fan of Clear’s gas mask, but it came out really cool in nendoroid size. The painting on the eyes is especially neat; it looks just like it does in the character art.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856584.jpeg
Take the mask off, and you reveal the handsome face beneath! Clear has two separate front hair parts; one with the mask and one without. The mask can also be detached from its front hair part to use with other nendoroids (with some balancing, though--it won't attach to other nendos automatically)

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856586.jpeg
Close up, you can see that his face moles are both there! GSC never misses a detail!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856588.jpeg
Here’s everything he came with: plenty of arms, two gasmasks, two expressions, and a clear umbrella. He includes parts for holding the umbrella in either hand, but the small mask can only be held in his right.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856590.jpeg
First I tried the umbrella, and…. gotta be honest, not sure how I feel about this one. I’ve already heard plenty of horror stories about the umbrella breaking, so I was extra careful handling it, but… it’s so small!! it doesn’t really provide much rain protection, and it’s hard to position. Nendoroids have had normal-looking umbrellas before (see ITEM #287735, ITEM #107714, ITEM #158023, ITEM #93303), so the small one that comes with Clear strikes me as a weird design decision.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/Magusfigures1474856627.jpeg
It’s hard to pose the umbrella over his head, but I guess you could pose him testing for rain…

From here the colors are going to be warmer in these pics because I actually took so much time struggling to get Clear’s default expression off that I lost most of my natural light and had to turn the room light on… I had to use a tweezer to pry the expression out, and that’s AFTER soaking him in warm water. I guess his parts fit together a little too well…

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/Magusfigures1474856629.jpeg
Anyway, let’s use some alternate parts! This one makes use of the insecure face + small gas mask. The small mask has two separate places for Clear to hold it from, the bottom and the side.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/Magusfigures1474856631.jpeg
So shy!!!!

For this I made use of the bent arms, and attached the mask at the side. The smaller gasmask might seem redundant, but it's actually a really cute addition.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/Magusfigures1474856633.jpeg
Add the smiling expression and you get…. a perfect angel!!! ;_____; he’s so cute, i’m dying…

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856690.jpeg
Aoba: is that…!!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856635.jpeg
Clear: Aoba-san!! I knew it was you!!
Aoba: Clear… It’s so good to see you…
Clear: Likewise, Aoba-san.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/Magusfigures1474856692.jpeg
Clear: I’m looking forward to all the time we’ll spend together, Aoba-san!
Aoba: J-jeez….. I told you, just “Aoba” is fine…
Clear: I’m especially looking forward to all the *** we can have!! Especially when I ***** and ****** Aoba-san’s ****** –!
Aoba: CLEAR

With Clear here, my dmmd family is complete! Or, as complete as it’s probably going to be… as I said earlier, I don’t have high hopes at this point for Mink to get a nendoroid too. He's fairly unpopular as it is, and Dmmd hasn't had much in the way of figure announcements lately. I've emailed GSC showing my support for a Mink nendo a few times, but for now I'll make due with the one Mink figure that we *do* have ;;

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/Magusfigures1474856696.jpeg
I tried body swapping Clear with Nendoroid T.M. Revolution (ITEM #174847). I actually really like this look on him…. Maybe I'll use it again for a real shoot in the future!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/Magusfigures1474856698.jpeg
I also tried swapping him with N, and vice versa. N ended up looking better, lmao

bummed that this picture ended up out of focus, though...

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/Magusfigures1474856736.jpeg
He warm

I might use Clear's outfit with N again in the future; it's a really good look for him!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856738.jpeg
Aigis: Hello. My sensors indicate that you too are an android. My name is Aigis. I am pleased to make your acquaintance.
Clear: It’s nice to meet you, but… well….
Aigis: Hm?
Clear: Aren’t you worried about people seeing–I mean, you’re not wearing any–
Aigis: Oh. That isn’t really a concern of mine. Most humans don’t think anything of it. What about you? You’re dressed fairly warmly for an android.
Clear: Well, I was built to resemble humans as closely as possible, so I don’t think I could go around without pants on like you do…
Aigis: OH. Oh. Um, I see.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856740.jpeg
Raiden: You’re a new face around here. I’m Raiden; It’s nice to meet you.
Clear: Thank you, Raiden-san. Your outfit is very cool and sharp.
Raiden: Ah, thanks. It’s a sneaking suit; it doesn’t make any sound when I move. It’s so I can go on secret missions.
Clear: Secret missions? Hm… I think I have just the thing.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856742.jpeg
Clear: There! Now nobody will know who you are! I think it suits you very well, Raiden-san.
Raiden: Y-you think so?

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856744.jpeg
Aoba: Clear? I, um, I got this for you as a housewarming gift…
Clear: *gasp* Aoba-san…. it’s perfect…. thank you ;A;

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856828.jpeg
I bought that jellyfish about two years ago, right around the same time I got Aoba. He’s been waiting two years to give that to Clear ;; I'm so happy to finally have them together...

Anyway, to wrap up, let's tally up the scores:
Sculpting: 9! Overall he's very well sculpted, down to the tiniest of details. He's only short of perfect because of how darn hard it was to change his expressions out ;; I don't know if that's a manufacturing defect or what, but my hand definitely hurt from changing expressions by the time I finished the shoot lmao
Painting: 10! He's very well-painted, no complaints here. His character design doesn't really call for fancy paint jobs or tiny painted details, so I feel like the final paint job was appropriate for the character. The one place where Orange Rouge really got to show off with him was in the eyes of the gas mask; I love how they look almost opulent. It almost makes me want to get a second one so I can display him both with and without the mask, haha!
Posing: 8! Overall, very easy to pose, and the parts fit together well. I scored it an 8 mostly because he seems somewhat limited in the poses he can do when using his accessories. I will no doubt be able to get creative with other props, though...
Accessories: (A new category I'm going to start using for nendoroids, since packaging and base don't generally apply to them). Clear's accessories get a 7, but really only because of the umbrella. It's so fragile, and a weird size for a nendoroid. It can't really be posed with easily, which is a setback for such a key item for Clear. I was also kind of hoping they'd include a singing expression part like on the Picktam ITEM #249778, but alas...
Enjoyment: After all this time, I have to give Clear a 10. Aoba looked so lonely on my shelf without him, and I'm so happy that he has company now ;-; but Clear's also perfectly adorable by himself! I've amassed a ton of props to use with him these last two years, and I can't wait to get cracking on photoshoots!! >u<

I think this just about wraps up the review! Here’s how I have them displayed on my shelf:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856798.jpeg
My nendo shelf is getting so full…. I may need to rearrange a little/put some away for when I have more room to display them ;;

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Magusfigures1474856800.jpeg
Anyway, thanks for reading!! It was a quick one-two punch of reviews this month, but I have no idea when the next one will be.

good, because im literally out of space now lmao

HijikataCloud (Il y a 3 ans) #14982335Haha enjoyed the banter and the poses! You are spot-on my friend!
haha aww, thank you!! you're too kind ;u;

SkyBlue (Il y a 3 ans) #14986207Such a cute review~♡ Clear's umbrella should've been bigger so that it could fit both Aoba and Clear ;A; and I was hoping for a jellyfish accessory but yeah. I still bug GSC to complete the DMMd nendoroids so let's keep our fingers crossed! ^^
Aw man I totally hear you on the umbrella. Having it big enough for them to share would've been so cute ;; Fingers crossed for more dmmd nendos here too!!

ZoidsFanatic (Il y a 3 ans) #14987287I never played DMMd (personally never a fan of visual novels) or watched the anime but as soon as Clear went up for PO I got a hold of him ASAP. By and large he's my favorite Nendo I have due in part to looking adorable. Actually I really like all of the DMMd designs and kinda wish we got more of those designs for figures then our standard fair.
I personally dislike that umbrella he came with. Mine got stuck in his left hand rather quickly and since its so fragile I just leave it there. But besides that I can't complain. He's perfect!
Also took me a few months to figure out those were beauty marks on his chin, not piercings...

Yeah, one of the things that drew me to Dmmd in the first place was the character designs. They all look like they belong in different shows, but they're all packed with personality. When they're all together they look like they're all hanging out at comicon or something, which is kind of hilarious.

Personally i loved the show/what I've seen of the VN but it's deeeefinitely not everyone's cup of garbage lmao. This is one anime i won't blame people for not seeing. But I'm really glad to hear Clear's cuteness won you over!!

Saurys (Il y a 3 ans) #14990206Never played DMMd however, this guy made it to my collection. His body and accessories are a must get. And I like his color scheme. It's simple but classy.
I loved it when you interchanged Clear's and N's body parts. Now the desire to get N intensified more than before. ;w;

I'm glad you like him, even if you haven't played the game! Clear seems to be popular that way, and it makes me happy ;u;

N was definitely a good purchase! I actually had the idea to trade parts with him and Clear way back when Clear was announced, so you could say this has been a long time coming haha...
