  • Wario542 months ago#91491043I could’ve sworn I didn’t see the Sonic ducks at a US retailer before, but now I see that Eggman’s up for pre-order at a shop here? Maybe they’re still working on getting more retailers? They’re really not slowing down with the licenses either because I see there’s a Pennywise duck too?? Something else I didn’t know I needed. XD
    That trailer looks really good! Considering all they’ve been doing lately, I don’t know why I ever doubted Mappa. XD That’s so sweet that the staff were fans too! I feel like it doesn’t get enough love in Japan, I would buy a little lizard Nendo in a heartbeat. TwT


    Was it at BigBadToyStore? That is the official USA retailer. Now that I think about it, it might be cheaper for me to get them from the USA and pay the shipping and customs from there than try to get them from the UK...hrmmm. But still I don't want to pay an arm and a leg for these duckies. They are great fun, but not masterpieces or super rare/exclusive.

    I don't really have a feeling they are working on more retailers, but yeah the line is huge! I am not sure when they started with these, but I think about 2-3 years ago? And at least 5 releases a month since then LOL. Some others have been tempting me as well (like the LOTR ones as my husband is a huge fan), but I don't want my house to be overrun by ducks. xD 

    Yeah Mappa is bascially the #1 nowadays, right? I am very much looking forward how they will do Chainsaw Man and I am doubting if I should try the manga or see how Mappa does the anime first.

    Now with me buying lots more Dorohedoro merchandise the franchise seems to be in this spot inbetween mainstream and niche where there is lots of merchandise, but most of it is in super limited quantities and such... But hey, at least there is regularly stuff to buy, which I can't say about some of my other favorite franchises LOL.

    It is kind of a hard franchise to recommend because I have quite a bunch of friends that don't like gore or horror-ish themes so then they probably won't like it althouhg the mystery is so good! TT^TT

    And yes, same same! Well, with even Chainsaw Man getting a nendo, I have a feeling that if there would be a S2 of Dorohedoro we might get some? S1 gained a lot of new fans for the franchise so I have a feeling that before S1 there were not enough followers to warrant Nendoroids, but maybe now there is?? I would buy them all! Maybe even duplicates if I really like their faces/expressions haha.

    Maakie2 months ago#91484446Yeah haha I am still thinking about ordering them right now. :D It's so unfortunate that in Europe the only seller seems to be a UK store, which means customs for most other Europeans. :(
    Oh no, it's so good! Mappa gave it a 1000%. Most of the main staff was also a huge fan of the manga! Did you ever watch the trailer?

    I've been telling a lot of people to start with the anime. It's a very good start, but the manga does help with reading afterwards because the series is so fast paced! I missed out on a lot of things in the first watch haha.

    Wario542 months ago#91436697Omg that Ada rubber duck. XD That’s so good to hear about the anime! I was putting it off because I was skeptical ever since the anime was first announced, everything about it is just so weird and I couldn’t picture it being good lol. Now I’m excited to get some people who know nothing about the series to watch it blind. XD

    Maakie2 months ago#91432001They are very good, you should get them! And by huge coincidence, they have just announced a new bundle eu.justgeek.com... . My hands are itching to pre-order them although I know that with the prices it's better to wait.
    And yeah getting into Dorohedoro (and now for me convincing other people try it), the art style does not help. The anime is great by the way, they managed to keep that fast pace and the soundtrack is amazing. The voice casting is also very good. It was also nice to see this setting in more color! Lots of things are also more psychedelic looking, something Q said she also wanted the manga to have, and is happy that the anime can show it now. :)

    Thank you! I regularly think about dropping all the offtopic talk and then I get comments like this again and I guess I'll continue haha!

    Wario542 months ago#91428535Those Resident Evil rubber ducks, omg I need them. XD And good to know I wasn’t the only one put off by the appearance of Dorohedoro lol, I still haven’t watched the anime but I plan to because the manga was so good and I’m curious to see how its craziness was adapted. XD
