Nendoroid#1000 - Thoughts?Comments • Nendoroid#1000 - Thoughts?

  • 1pt
    I didn't know there was any hype for the 1,000th Nendo, but I can say I wouldn't want it to be Miku or Saber/any Fate character. They should have done something custom, original, and unique. Maybe a huke collaboration. His designs are the shit. This Snow Miku looks like a modified version of Sayaka Miki, totally boring and unoriginal. They totally dropped the ball on this.

    As a person who doesn't care about Fate, I'm just glad its not another Fate figure. I don't really care too much about Miku either, but I'm more inclined to want her than a Fate figure.

    I wouldn’t have cared except for the fact that GSC seemed to be trying to build up some hype for #1000? After creating that buzz, making it something that was already guaranteed seems extremely anticlimactic. If they had either announced it when the Snow Miku design was or not acted like it was a big secret, I think it would be less debated now. Who knows though, maybe they have some accessory up their sleeve that will blow us all away?

    I agree with you Marshmallowpie!
    Yes, I was a little bit disappointed but I am happy Miku got it (just as I said on her MFC page)
    She is a staple in the anime community as well as Japanese culture.
    I think she is a beautiful nendoroid and am happy to add her to my collection.
    She will be my first ever Miku nendoroid as well as WonFes order from GSC

    Marshmallowpie (4 days ago) #48135069I don't find the number that important, but I do kinda feel like Miku is more deserving of it, rather than some super famous character that GSC has never made a figure of before? But maybe it should have been something slightly more unique and not something that was guaranteed to happen anyway.

    If they had made Yotsuba ITEM #780987 the number 1000, that would have been a total surprise. The unexpected announcement for her, after so many years, has flashed me more than that foreseeable Miku.

    I really don't get why you're being downvoted to heck and back, I honestly agree with you. Miku has basically become a character that one instantly thinks of when they think of GSC, especially nendoroids, at least in my opinion. Who else is more deserving than Miku? -shrugs-

    But anyway, in my opinion, it's just a number. It doesn't matter much. I guess it would have been neat if it was something special, but meh.

    cremareo (4 days ago) #48136944I feel like a super famous character would've been more revolutionary than *another* Miku, a character who's gotten several Nendos already

    Several is a bit of an understatement xD

    My immediate reaction was something along the lines of "Meh.".

    Unpopular opinion but it is just a number. Hell, my choice for number 1000 would have been Star Wars related. I knew it was never going to happen and it was going to be either Miku or Saber... and I was right. It was Miku. But truthfully I don’t feel it’s the end of the world or even Nendoroids. We’re stilling getting Nendoroids, after all. We’re now close to number 1100 even.

    So as far as I’m concerned it is disappointing for those wanting something new or different but at the end of the day it is just a number.

    TheySayMoop (4 days ago) #48130709It doesn’t matter what 1000 would have been, there would always be dissatisfied people.
    I disagree tbh. Of course there'd be some disappointments and nay sayers. But I'm convinced that most of the folks, even though they might have not gotten the character they specifically wanted themselves, would've been been able to appreciate it at least as long as it would've been an epic license.

    E.g. if it would've been a Dragonball character for example, I personally wouldn't have gone so far to purchase it myself and I had preferred Sailor Moon or One Piece, but I would've still aknowledged that this is something big and meaningful to the Anime and collecting community.
