    Nendoroids are basically Funko Pops but good, posable cute figurines.

    If they made Figmas for He-Man an Skeletor that actually match the cartoon I would buy.

    Those are very nice, I collect many nendroids and I'm stoked there's some MOTU now in this line!

    "The Most Powerful Man in the Universe..."
    "Where Hope seems Lost..."
    "Good Journey!"
    "I was summoned on the future..."
    "A Hero shall emerge to protect Eternia..."
    "A Hero will Rise..."
    "The Power of Grayskull Awakens......"
    "Let the Power Returns....!"

    One of the coolest aspects of Good Smile's Nendoroid line is the willingness to license Western IPs...

    I own a lot of Nendoroids, mostly video game related, and these look fantastic!





    Another cool thing is that many of the characters optioned for Nendoroids by Max Factory also get the Figma treatment!

    TBH any incarnation of MOTU would work well as Figmas.

    While it does happens sometimes, it's not all the time eg Korra, RWBY and the Little Witch Academia cast all got nendos but no Figmas.

    I love these sm. I only have two Nendoroids (Toon Link and Isabelle), but between these and the Ace Attorney ones, I'm gonna end up blowing far too much on them.

    Also, what's the new Nendoroid articulation like? Can they stand on their own now?

    Yeah, toon Link is awesome!

    I have the Majora's Mask Link, as well as both the standard and deluxe BOTW Links... his horse is soooo cool (cute).

    Nope.

    Nendoroids, by design, are way too top-heavy... they will always require a stand.

    Personally, I love the Nendoroid stands... probably my favorite style. I have a bunch of extras for my smaller Star Trek ships and Metal Slug model kits.


    EDIT: I wish that the Battle Cat standee was also done in a chibi style...

    I have actually been wondering what a MOTU figure by an import company would look like but never thought I would see it actually happen. Good Smile products are out of my price range and Masterverse exist so if they made Figmas I would pass, although would still be nice to see.

    These look pretty good. But yeah, if I pick these up or not will depend on pricing. Good Smile tends to go overboard in that area.

    it would be great if they would release some licensed FIGMA figures with all that articulation and accessories!
    also bandai s.h.figuarts would be welcome if asked to make some MOTU collectibles items, at least for the main heroes
    "The Most Powerful Man in the Universe..."
    "Where Hope seems Lost..."
    "Good Journey!"
    "I was summoned on the future..."
    "A Hero shall emerge to protect Eternia..."
    "A Hero will Rise..."
    "The Power of Grayskull Awakens......"
    "Let the Power Returns....!"

    I'm still holding on to hope for an S.H. Figuarts He-Man & Skeletor and Lion-O & Mumm-Ra.


    They've done Batman, Superman, Captain America, DBZ, Power Rangers, Hulk, etc., so it's not out of the realm of possibility.

    It's worth noting that Figuarts was originally meant to be a line for Kamen Rider and Super Sentai line, so the Power Rangers ones were more or less an extension of that.

    Then again they also did Sailor Moon, Star Wars and Freddy Mercury of all things, so I guess anything is fair game for them.

    I have a feeling we won't see Figmas or SH Figuarts figures. Like, Mattel seems to want to keep proper action figures to themselves (see the Super7 thing)

    What's anyone's guess on the retail price? I am not familiar with Nendoroid but products on their Mercari store go from $25 to over $100. Also, are these hard to get? Limited editions? I know we don't have info yet.

    Yeah, HLJ has them for $58, but after shipping, they would even out... (mostly because I never use SAL shipping options.)

    Huge pass for that price for a less than 4 inches tall figure.

    They look cool but $150 for 2 figures is more than I'm willing to spend. How very awesome that their faces are articulated though.
