Flandre Scarlet Nendoroid review


So I got my Flandre figure sometime last week, after completely forgetting I even ordered it. My bad memory is good for surprising me! Her box isn't as pretty as Remilia's. She has the same design, but instead of a pretty pink box she has a yellow box. Oh well, not too big of a deal.

Seems cute enough, right? I've noticed that she comes with a small piece of paper that I don't recall being in my previous Nendoroid boxes. I'm too lazy to check though, it's possibly just my memory messing with me. As you can see, she has one normal face, one happy face, and one cynical looking face. Her Leviathan is okay, but it's kind of slippery in her hand. It's a bit difficult to keep it in place.

 And Just like Remilia, her stand has a special design on it. Again, I liked Remilia's more, but I still like Flandre's. I'm wondering if Goodsmile plans on doing this with more Nendoroids. It's a nice little touch, in my opinion. I could easily see some Miku ones with cute spring onions on the bottom and such, accompanied by musical notes or something.

One thing I noticed about Flandre and Remilia is that they have the same looking faces. I mean, obviously they're siblings and such, and they do have different expressions, but their eyes, eyelashes, nose, etc. are all identical. As such, you can easily swap their faces and it wouldn't really look out of place (except maybe putting Flandre's closed eye'd smiley face on Remilia). Their eyes are the same as well, with that same design on them.

See? Look at their faces? All the same. Now here's some Scarlet sister cosplay.
And all was fine and dandy, until Takoluka came to play.
Won't you give her a hug?
 So Flandre doesn't really come with too much. I think I enjoy Remilia more, but it's nice to have both of them standing side by side. You can't really see in the pictures, but 2 of Flandre's extra hands come with her sharp claw-finger hybrid things, those are fairly nice. Her hair kinda came to me with a QUALITY mark on it. Good thing her cap covers it, and even without it it's not too noticeable. Still kind of annoying, but what can ya do, huh? Nothing else seemed wrong with her. The bottom portion of her seems a bit loose, not too sure why, and her hat was harder to put on than Remilia's, but in the end I got to fit it nicely.

By the way, I had a problem trying to figure out what part goes to what box after I was packing up their extra parts again. Stupid identical sleeves and faces. I'll forgive you only because you're cute figures.

I kind of didn't like the nendroids at first glance but, now that I have seen more up close photos of them they are pretty neat.

Flandre looks cute, I love her wings.

I can't help but HNNG when they're both together. Their similar looking parts might be because figure manufacturers have no respect for the Touhou franchise and know people will buy up anything regardless.

The yellow box doesn't look that great to me either, I was expecting it to be red.

Flan's cynical face matches well with her sister's smug face.

So cute I died.

I'm very jealous. Takoluka with a top hat is classy (and apparently evil) as fuck.

>figure manufacturers...know people will buy up anything regardless

Griffon's got many a dollar out of me by following this sort of strategy.

If I had to choose one over the other, I'd say Remilia. It's that one smug face..

Flandre's nice, though. I bet you feel very slightly accomplished now that you have both.

Pretty cute figures. I like the base they have.

Takoluka looks dangerous. ;_;

I thought it was cute. The nendo boxes are all the same really except for just a few with special design I think, otherwise they're just different colors?

I liked how you used the packing paper to great effect with the pictures too.

An interesting discussion is worth comment. There's no doubt that that you should publish more about this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject but generally folks don't talk
about such issues. To the next! Kind regards!!
