Just a few hours ago, Kizuna Ai, the Japanese “virtual” YouTuber, announced that a Nendoroid figure of herself is in development. She only had images of an uncoloured prototype to show, but she did say a coloured prototype would be unveiled at the Good Smile Company’s booth at Wonder Festival 2018 [Winter] on the 18th of February, which is only about a week away!
Kizuna Ai certainly looks cute as a Nendoroid, doesn’t she? Coincidentally, just over a day ago I wrote a post (titled The Figma Brand turns 10!), in which I mentioned a survey the Good Smile Company is currently running, which is asking people to nominate a character they’d like to see turned into a figma figure. I was seriously thinking about nominating Kizuna Ai, but now that this Nendoroid has been announced, I no longer think that’s such a good idea. The way I see it, either the chances of Max Factory making a figma figure of.Kizuna Ai are now practically zero, or they are already planning one! Either way, it looks like I’ll have rethink my nomination.😅
Once official photos of the coloured prototype become available, I’ll be sure to write a follow-up post to this one. But for now, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
