Nendoroid #985 Joutarou Kuujou At a GlanceNendoroid #985 Joutarou Kuujou At a Glance

Hey errbody! It's ya boy girl LadyLavellan back at it again with another review. Just kidding this is my first article and it's more of a mixture between review and "show and tell"
kind of thing but anywho,
woo!

I've got with me one of the most anticipated nendos this new year already, Nendo #985 Joutarou Kuujou! And I wanted to share him with you guys! Oh, this is a bit image heavy and all that biz.



---> Box <---

The box is your standard Nendo box of course. I love how small these things are now. It's honestly so impressive how they fit in all these accessories into it.

---> Inside <---
Neat and organized as always!

If you bought from GoodSmile like myself you'll have grabbed yourself this nice little base as well as a pre-order bonus! I love it! It's simple but it gives Joutarou that bit of pizazz that's usually missing from the standard base.

---> The Figure <---
I'm lazy as heck when it comes to pose-ables even though I own various nendos and figmas (OTL) so sorry for not displaying him in all his poses! This is what I currently have him posed as! Gotta love that signature pose!

I'm actually not sure how I feel about Star Platinum's "Ora" punches. They're cool to be sure but having them as a solid color like this makes the fists hard to tell apart maybe? Prhaps a little shadow would have been nice to see them more defined among each other.

It's actually pretty ingenious how they managed to mimic the hand-in-pocket! It's its own hand piece and you just lay it over the coat! Unfortunately for me mine had a small paint defect as you can see. I'm not stressing it though. It's not significant enough for me to message GSC about it. Less hassle for me tbh, LOL.

A look at his backside.

So here's the coolest part with the paint on his hair/hat; it's green! This shading is sooo niiiice. I love how they mimicked that green shading that's so prevalent on Joutarou's character design even on this smol nendo.

I'm honestly super satisfied. He looks wonderful. I'll be sure to change his poses as time goes on like I do with my other pose-ables.


---> In the Collection <---
I've got him together with my other favorite boys! If this ain't the dream team idk what is!

I also got the good smile company edition base too. Everything is better then I thought he would look. Am glad I ordered him.


I'm glad your doubts were cleared up with my pics! GSC has high quality control but it looks like mine slipped past them. I hope yours comes perfectly! Good luck on your wait and thank you!!
