✨ this week in figure news ~ 003 ✨

Anime expo left us with a bunch of Nendoroid news. I don’t know if my heart can take it! 😱


Let’s start off with Disney. Earlier this year at Winter Wonder Festival, Good Smile Company announced several previews for up and coming Disney and Pixar Nendoroids.

Disney/Pixar Nendoroids

Last weekend we got a look at the first two of the batch, Rapunzel and Belle.

Rapunzel comes in her signature outfit with her long blonde hair braided and decorated with flowers for mobility and cuteness. With frying pan in hand and Pascal, her trusty chameleon, by her side (or in this case on her head), Rapunzel is ready for an adventure.

Belle, on the other hand, comes in her classic yellow ball gown with a little rose for her to hold. Joining her are Mrs. Potts and Chip, ready to help a girl out for the big dance.

Besides the Disney Princesses, we also got to see a finished Wakatoshi Ushijima from Haikyuu!! Yet another boy to add to my collection.

Like the captains before him, Wakatoshi comes with a flowing jacket to hang over his shoulders. With his serious face, he’s ready to hit those service aces and spikes that give Karasuno and others so much trouble.

But he’s not all doom and gloom, with a satisfied look on his face as he takes a water break.

Just don’t make him mad or cocky and you won’t be subjected to this:

Ushijima is available for preorder from Good Smile’s online shop from July 4th til August 10th.


We also got a sneak peek at the robots from Portal 2: ATLAS and P-body.

Ah portal. I miss ya. I really did enjoy playing the co-op missions with my brother as these two. One or the few times I’ve bossed him around in a video game 😏


I fee like it wasn’t that long ago that we got a sneak peek at the prototype for Al’s Nendoroid and already we’re getting a painted version! Can’t be long for the preorders to be out for this little guy.

And he wasn’t the only Full Metal Alchemist  x Nendoroid news we got! Looks like Roy Mustang is going to join the boys:
