I think I am addicted to nendos.Commentaires • I think I am addicted to nendos.

  • 0pt
    While I do have a few nendoroids in my collection, I'll never be 100% sold on them. I've never been too fond of them nor do I find them particularly cute. Of course there are some exceptions such Saber Lion only because it closely matches her Fate/Tiger in-game model.

    The main things that detract me from nendoroids are 1) The stands. I often find difficulty in getting them in a stable position and more often than not, they fall over. I realize the stands are better now, so this mostly applies to older ones which are a lot. 2) I'm simply not a huge fan of super-deformed or chibi-sized figures unless the source material is also done in the same fashion.

    Sure its great that nendoroids are small and one can fit a lot more into a display case as opposed to scale figures, but I much prefer having a smaller number of well-made scale figured over a chaotic bunch of nendoroids. Quality over quantity for me.

    Speaking for myself Nendoroids will always be at the bottom of the barrel. Scale figures > Poseables(Figma, Revoltech, D-Arts, etc) > Nendoroids is the way I look at it.

    That all said, to each their own. While I'm fine with primarily scale figures, there's nothing wrong with liking and collecting nendoroids.

    abi (Il y a 6 ans) #1200039Yes, nendos are evil x_x.. but so cute.. I've got that terrible addiction too, I have to stop! For my own good ><'.. and thinking that at first I believed I would only have like 4..

    It's easy to think you'll just get a few... it just snowballs from there.

    Katto (Il y a 6 ans) #1200080I know your feels. I'm starting to get the addiction to Chibi-Arts too .___. Though that's only because Bandai own the rights to a lot of my favourite shows.

    If they weren't so cheap comparatively, it wouldn't be so hard to pass on them. But they're cute, have accessories and multiple faces. And cute D:


    The accessories, and particularly the faceplates, are why I love them so, I think. I can mix and match faces and have all sorts of fun. I've seen a couple Chibi Arts that are cute, but not being nendos, I ignored them; not getting in to another product line, and why bother when nendos are mostly all swappable parts. :D

    mintbunny (Il y a 6 ans) #1200262I'm addicted to just collecting. I buy stuff til I have no money left. Of course this is after I pay bills, so it's fine, but why is it a problem? You have the money, some people like scaled figures, some like nendos, some like trading figures. And I think the people with 500+ figures are a tad more addicted than you dearie. So don't worry about it.

    I'm not worried, exactly. It's just a strange turn in my collection since I used to be so strictly scale only. Next thing I'll cave and buy a Dollfie. Then want more for different wigs and outfits. >.<

    Shelia (Il y a 6 ans) #1200454Trust me it only becomes more addictive with time.

    It seems like I am facing that now, with Ami's pre-owned having so many earlier nendos available quite often. I just buy any char I know now, it seems. >.<

    BassAgent (Il y a 6 ans) #1200668I will only ever buy scaled figures. I just dont care too much for any of the other types. Thank god bcuz my wallet would rape me for raping it lol

    Cost is an excellent (and ultimate) way to constrain collecting. I have a reasonable disposeable income though, so spending a few hundred in a month isn't a big deal. I've spent nearly a thousand in a single month twice now, so yeah, it can certainly damage the wallet. But satisfying the collecting urge is delicious.

    Wildstar (Il y a 6 ans) #1199199I have refused to get any nendos precisely because of this. Good luck.

    Good plan.

    kagehito (Il y a 6 ans) #1199391What seems to get me in trouble now is buying Nendoroids either just for the accessories or a particularly funny or cool face plate. Or buying older discounted Nendoroids that I cannibalize for parts... I recently picked up a second Golden Darkness Nendoroid so that if one day they ever release a Mikan Nendo, I can pair them up.

    Oh god, tell me about it. I bought Erio just for her pizza face. Elsie I mostly wanted for her derpy faces, and I picked up Azunyan and Neko Arc just for silly parts. I am weak. ;.;

    lugiastrikes (Il y a 6 ans) #1199409Same thing happened to me, actually. For the longest time I didn't like Nendos because of their high import prices (back in the days they were almost just as expensive as scaled figures in my local anime store), and for a small figure it obviously doesn't seem worth it.

    Online shopping is a blessing and a curse. Between Mandarake and Ami's pre-owned, I think account for half of my nendos, if not a bit more now.

    FutSanNoShadowK (Il y a 6 ans) #1199515I actually find scale figures more irresistible than Nendoroids :<

    Scale figures simply take too much room, so unless you live in a mansion, you need to give them up at some point. I just recently sold most of my Shining Hearts girls, as it's a source I'm unfamiliar with, and I have a few more for sale from games and such that I don't know. Characters I have no attachment to need to go first. ;.;

    aigis (Il y a 6 ans) #1199603they're not my main obsession and right now my rule is to only buy characters i really like for really cheap, but i can definitely see these cute little guys becoming a problem for me, hahaha ^^;

    GSC certainly knows what it is doing. I used to despair they were making so many nendos and figmas instead of more good scales, but now I actually look forward to nendo announcements. (still shun figmas though)

    TyjosAzari (Il y a 6 ans) #1199670Nendos are still cool and always amazes me to see how others get quickly addicted to them....

    Yep. GSC have created visual crack.

    lagomorph (Il y a 6 ans) #1199847I don't see the appeal of nendos yet - I have a few petits for fun because they're cheap, but all the charas I love I have to have in full-scale. Nendos just can't be sexy the way scale figures are!

    Well, yeah. Nendos are cute, not sexy. I don't really care about sexy, I like cute and adorable things.

    Hatchuu (Il y a 6 ans) #1199963Some of them have given me some pain over the years (neck joints mainly >_> they break and get stuck so easily) but they're still too cute to resist!

    I've still only broken one neck joint. Not too concerned about it since every nendo comes with a bunch. Can replace them readily enough.

    Thanks for the feedback so far, everyone. Good to see I'm largely not alone. >.<

    I know your feel, bro u w u
    I started my collection with lots of nendos. I slowed down as less I wanted came out, but I still buy them and get all excited every time! Some of them have given me some pain over the years (neck joints mainly >_> they break and get stuck so easily) but they're still too cute to resist!

    I'm glad I escaped unscathed before any addiction to Nendos kicked in here...I have at least 3-4 right now.

    Would be tempted to get more but....I don't want to risk this happening.[I Can't afford a Nendo addiction]

    Nendos are still cool and always amazes me to see how others get quickly addicted to them....
