Nendoroids

Nendoroids are one of the biggest figure manufacturers in the world. The reason I am particularly interested in them is there interchangeable nature. Each figure comes with changeable outfits and facial expressions. Here are some examples including familiar face Hatsune Miku who I looked at in my original post exploring Interchangeable pop icons.

Aswell as being interchangeable Nendoroids are a unique version of the original within their own right. They are usually chibi versions of a game/anime character. Meaning the cute version. Nendoroid collecting is a community in itself, some people not even knowing the character they are collecting they just collect it because it’s Nendoroid. In my series Otaku Sanctuaries, Mim had hundreds of nendoroids. Last year in Japan Nendoroid even release there first video game.
