Collect, display, and play!
Calling all Chibi lovers! Created by Good Smile Company, the Nendoroid figure series is the ultimate collection of charming Chibi figures from some of the most loved animes, mangas, and video games. With over 1,000 Nendoroids to collect, you’re sure to find your favorite characters shrunk down and ready to strike a pose!
Bet you can’t collect just one Nendoroid.
Anime Nendoroid figures measure in at around 10cm (or about 3.9”), and these Chibi figures have a disproportionate head-to-body size to really up the cute factor. Each figurine is articulated so that you can pose and replicate a number of scenes with your favorite character. Add in some bonus props – like weapons, outfit accessories, or pets – and you’ll find that there’s no limit to your imagination.
The Nendoroid anime figures community is huge, mainly because the figures also include swappable faceplates so your figure can have a number of different expressions. A stand and base are included for stability when posing. We’re sure you’ll fall in love with these adorable little figures!
The very first anime character to be sold as a Nendoroid was Nendoroid Neko Arc, from the popular Tsukihime visual novel, which was released in early 2006. The original creator of this figure series was the amazing Tsuyoshi Oda. Now, due to the popularity, several people work on the series under the collective name Nendoron. Because so many people work together on a single Nendoroid, it would be almost impossible to credit each individual, which is why a collective name is used. The planning and production of a single figure are handled by over ten people on the Good Smile Company team.
By March 2009, the fantastic Nendoroid series had sold over 1 million units, and the Nendoroid Petite series had sold over 3 million units. The series very quickly expanded, and in just 4 years (July 2010), there were over 100 different Nendoroids figures in production. Around May 2013, Good Smile Company released its 300th figure in the base series, Hatsune Miku 2.0, which was a revamped version of the previous best-selling Nendoroid Hatsune Miku. The box design and method of connecting faceplates were also improved from this release onward. Now, Good Smile Company has released over 1,200 Nendoroids with many more still to come!
