Nendoroid Versus Cu-pocheComments • Nendoroid Versus Cu-poche

    My answer is pretty biased so I'll go with nendos. I'm not the biggest fan of visible joints at all. The only figure that I'm willing to overlook the joints would be Revoltech's Woody. Though I do wish that GSC would consider making more males. *cough*Syaoran*cough*

    I really love nendoroids, for some characters the Nendoroid form is better, like in this photo: picture/895291&...

    But for some other characters, the Cu Poche looks better: picture/846864&...

    I don't plan on buy any Cu Poche someday, I love the Nendoroid line for it's variety, cuteness and acessories <3

    And for who doesn't think that Cu Poche and Nendoroid can't go along, here is something nice that any of you can try ^^

    And that's why I love exchangeable pieces <3

    bellechan (5 years ago) #2054988Nendo FTW for me!
    I don't like cu-poche, the proportion looks wrong to me as if they were a small 1/12 or something like that; and I don't like their faces either.
    But I would love bite my tongue and buy a male cu-poche... but wait... no one...
    and I understand that it's a new line and they have to focus on cute popular characters.


    Hopefully we will see more male characters across all lines and companies.

    BitterFox (5 years ago) #2054422I definitely think Nendoroids have that kind of classic or default chibi look that makes them so popular, while Cu-Poche has the proportions of a Dollfie (which I love!). The thing that's currently turning me away from Cu-Poche, though, is that their line up is almost identical to Nendoroids. So as someone who was excited about Cu-Poches, it's not exactly good start to me. I realize that riding the current popularity of series like PMMM, Fate/Zero, and SAO is a good move for a just starting series, but unless they branch away then I don't think I foresee myself getting any...

    I agree that it's a smart move for a starting line. Since they are new people are unsure of the quality and getting a more popular character ensures that you will sell more. Is it that you aren't a fan of these series or that you already own the nendos?

    Nendo's for me, I love swapping the parts and accessories its makes them unique. I rather playing with my figma's or revo's than playing with kropoches, I have one poches its was madoka, at the first I like playing with it but the couple minutes later get bored with it, so now it become the cutest fresh water fish tank decoration. And phat company makes parform which is IMHO more cuter than poches.

    Hikikomarie (5 years ago) #2054053Omg, I laughed so hard reading "Griffon Enterprises".
    All hail Nendoroid!
    I really don't like the Cu-Poche's faces. And their proportions are just fucked up. Mami is mai waifu, so I think I'll get her someday, but I wouldn't buy another character.


    I think that's how I am approaching cu-poches. Only picking up the characters I really love. They are great little figures. If I don't see her face next to Mami Nendoroid then it looks fine to me, but up against her I definitely prefer the nendos face in this case.

    adrikyn (5 years ago) #2053984I never really cared for Nendoroids, always found them pretty frustrating to pose and the proportions were too much, even if I thought of them as cute as first it would always wear off and then they'd look "weird". I've owned 8 Nendoroids and gotten rid of 6 of them--one of which was never even opened.
    Cu-poche though... I absolutely love them! You don't have to do all that annoying part swapping, and they have a much better set of proportions. I currently own 4 with another ordered, and no signs of getting bored of them yet!
    Also, for the magnets--it seems to vary. All of my Cu-poches were fine except for one of Mami's magnets, which I just glued back in. No issues since! It's a fairly easy fix.


    I think the magnets issue is like any other base issue like with the pegs not fitting in the holes. Since they are mass produced they all can't be perfect and I think stand issues aren't too bad in either case to have a clear winner there. It's nice though that the Cu-poche have other stand options in case you want to pose her differently or in case one way just doesn't work out.

    Glad you could find a chibi figure that works for you.
