Good news for Sakura fans! The nendoroid figure of the youngest Hoshidan princess is now available to pre-order from most big Japanese hobby stores–or even directly from Good Smile Company themselves.
First announced way back during Winter WonFes 2017, Sakura is the latest Fire Emblem character to receive the nendoroid treatment–previous characters include Marth, Caeda, Elise and female Corrin.
A detailed review of the Sakura nendoroid can be found at Kahoton’s blog. The figure comes with a stand, three interchangeable face plates (normal, shouting and embarrassed), a staff with an optional healing effect and a dumpling rod.
The figure is priced at 4,800 Yen (with tax included) and is expected to ship from May 2018. Pre-orders close on 9th November 2017, so prospecting buyers have roughly a month to secure this adorable little sister.
First teased back in February, Good Smile Company has blessed us with a first look at the Fire Emblem Fates Sakura nendoroid during today’s Summer Wonder Festival 2017.
Currently, the Sakura nendoroid is a work in progress (which should be immediately obvious since it hasn’t been painted yet), but it’s still very cute all the same.
According to the official description, Sakura will come with accessories and face plates, similar to previous nendoroids. The Elise nendoroid came with a horse, so hopefully Sakura will get something even half as good.
Because it’s still early days, a release date and a price have not been announced yet. We imagine it’ll be 2018 before it releases, since figures of this complexity can take a while to manufacture.
At Winter Wonder Festival 2017, held in Japan today, Good Smile Company teased a nendoroid figure of Sakura, the youngest Hoshidan sibling from Fire Emblem Fates.
She will be following in the footsteps of female Corrin and Elise, the former who is receiving a nendoroid figure in August 2017 and the latter whose figure was released back in late 2016.
It’s quite surprising for Sakura to join the gang, since she was the least popular royal in Japan (where the nendoroid is being marketed) based on the official website poll.
That said, she didn’t perform too badly in the recent Choose Your Legends global poll, securing a place in the Top 20 females from throughout the series.
So it wasn’t 100% guaranteed that she would be getting a figure, although of course I’m super glad that she is!
Although female Corrin may not be receiving an Amiibo (as far as we know anyway), that doesn’t mean that fans will be unable to own a plastic version of her.
First teased at the Summer Wonder Festival 2016, figma and nendoroid versions of female Corrin are now available to pre-order from good import/hobby sites (such as AmiAmi).
Both of the figures are produced by Good Smile Company, who are renown for creating high-quality products. Which is also evident from the price tag: 6,800 Yen for the figma and 5,200 Yen for the nendoroid.
The figma is to scale and measures 145 mm, while the nendoroid is super-deformed and measures 100 mm. As you can see from the pictures, both can be posed and include a few accessories like a dragonstone.
Speaking of which, if you order the figma directly from GSC, you can get an exclusive Omega Yato accessory.
