Pricy NendoroidsPricy Nendoroids

Can't remember if such thing has been properly asked before but it do makes me curious....

Which Nendoroid has been the priciest for Pre-Order?

And while we're at it:
I know Nendos like Deku (ITEM #455089) and Bakugo(ITEM #455088) went bonkers in the aftermarket.

Is there however a Nendoroid that can top their prices?

One that immediately comes to mind is the Neptunia nendo. She only came with vol 7 of the BD set and went to insane prices on the secondary market. You won't get away with paying less than $150 for her.

ITEM #169541

Carousel (Il y a 1 an) #24509248I 100% agree here. I don't think that expecting rereleases is the way to go about collecting, but with how GSC has been with their Nendoroids lately I also think it's smarter when a Nendo jumps in such leaps to wait and see, since the trend nowadays has been to get rereleases.

This is where I'm 50/50 in my opinion. I think if companies only want to do first print runs, then all their items should be considered limited (by which I mean actually limited, and not just what you and I know is a standard-but-limited-but-standard). Look at Flare, who only fulfills preorders with little to no release stock. Is it right for the company to consider that a standard release? To me that's the definition of limited.
Especially with the price hikes in figures this year alone, if companies want to have standard releases and not just limited, then 2nd and 3rd prints are a must for their popular items. Should they do it with everything? Nah. But taking these two Nendoroids and other figures into consideration there's no danger of product laying around.
(But then there's the argument of depreciating ones own collection which is a whole 'nother bag of worms)


I agree with you, but if GSC added "this is a limited release" to everything, I don't see anything changing. People would still continue to ask for a 2nd or 3rd release. And my issue is not with things getting another release, as that would only benefit the customer, but with the people expecting it to get another release.

LivingDaylight (Il y a 1 an) #24510219Nothing wrong to expect re-release. Everyone just wants to obtain their fun. Don't be so eliticist. "Collecting". It's playable toys not posh autos. If someone have unlimited money he can be snobby on rereleases, but we are all normal people, and we have our lives and budgets, we can't preorder anything we really really want to obtain, even if it's narrowed to nendoroids. In other words, if you think rereleases are wrong - stay aside, a lot of people will ask for them and in the end get them and be happy. Because rereleases mean money to figure companies, and they won't skip them.

Theres nothing wrong with HOPING for another release. But EXPECTING one is another matter entirely. And before this year, it was rare for a nendoroid to get a 2nd release. I don't like it anymore than anyone else, but the aftermarket is just part of the hobby. So if you can't get one on release, then you'd have to pay the aftermarket prices. Unless it got another release.

And I wouldn't be so sure about assuming companies won't skip out on rereleases. Yes, that would make them money, but is there enough demand and profit to make it worth their time and effort? Maybe they could use that time for something more profitable.

SageGuy (Il y a 1 an) #24499704But now people have come to expect everything will get one, which I think is just flat out wrong.

SageGuy (Il y a 1 an) #24499704Why should a standard release be treated as limited? Because most goods will only get 1 print run. So after everything is sold out, stores won't be getting anymore. You don't have to preorder things if you don't want too, but if you want that popular item at retail price, it would be recommended.

The Nendoroid of the japanese singer May'n is really expensive. I believe you could only get it from the venues during her dots and line Live Tour so it's also one of the hardest to find.

Titan_Scientist (Il y a 1 an) #24499593Is Wo-Class the one that suddenly dropped because it turned out that the lights were easily damaged and a lot of them didn't work because of that?

I think so? Don't quote me though, as it's been a while since I've even thought about that nendo haha.

Carousel (Il y a 1 an) #24471794Because everything is getting a rerelease nowadays. Look at the Bungo Stray Dogs Nendoroids. They also spiraled out of control in the after market. As did the Pokemon Red Nendoroid. These were all given rereleases to counteract the prices. Which is a good thing. (Though Red could be argued as he was an Exclusive).

Also, if something is a standard release, why should they be treated as limited items? As far as I'm concerned standard releases should not have to be preordered at all. They should be able to be purchased at MSRP for a while after their initial release. The preorder culture is what is making everything "limited", even when it's not.



True several nendoroids have gotten another release this year. But now people have come to expect everything will get one, which I think is just flat out wrong. I don't really care one way or the other if things do get a second release. It's just the people constantly begging for them I don't like.

Why should a standard release be treated as limited? Because most goods will only get 1 print run. So after everything is sold out, stores won't be getting anymore. You don't have to preorder things if you don't want too, but if you want that popular item at retail price, it would be recommended.

Anime has grown in popularity over the years, but it's still fairly niche. But ither way, it's extremely difficult to estimate how much stock they should produce, too little and you won't meet the demand, and thus risk losing out on money. Too much and they could be sitting on unsold stock, and again risk losing money.

Being able to buy anime merchandise at retail price after it's release, while ideal, is not very realistic. Because from the stores point of view, they have this merchandise that is sitting around and not selling too well, when they could use that space for something else.

katsudon (Il y a 1 an) #24499155The Wo-Class nendo was over $100 for a while, but that was due to it being an exclusive. (it has lights up, which is super cool) But I think the most expensive nendo I've seen has to be the Ahri one from League of Legends as you could only get it at Worlds that year if memory serves.

Is Wo-Class the one that suddenly dropped because it turned out that the lights were easily damaged and a lot of them didn't work because of that?
