    How heartwarming.

    On a serious note, it's not half-bad - pretty accurate to the original, so it's perfect for the fans of this style.

    It is and it's not. Goodsmile has pre-order windows, and once those windows close, you often can't use Goodsmile's site to buy one. Its advertising in the sense it's bringing attention to an awesome Link Nendoroid, but it's not advertising because you can't use that home site to buy him anymore. You'll need to find or use a 3rd party vendor.

    Actually pretty cheap because once popular nendoids ship out, they'll jump atleast $20 more in a month's time, and go from there to $90 or more because often, Goodsmile won't make/sell any more post-release.

    Nendoroids are expensive as fuck all. I own quite a few myself, and fortunately this Nendoroid IS actually coming to america. Sometime in september i believe.

    Invested in two (and ended up with a couple Steins;Gate badges and an alpaca plushie too, goddammit japan). I know next to nothing about figmas and shit (I refuse to buy them), but nintendo characters in every form i've seem them are just goldmines. Even if they fall flat, they're worth identical price to what you paid in most cases...so I ain't worried, but that's what an investment is I guess.

    Looks pretty cool too. Might keep one and sell the other, who knows. I don't want to start a horrible, horrible addiction.

    If you think nendos are expensive, just try taking up scale figures collecting.
    Also, nendos are (usually) terrible investments, considering their prices drop like crazy once it's opened.
    And most of the price increase comes from markups from going down the chain of resellers rather than an actual increase in value.

    People who "invest" in anime figures buy them to enjoy decoration, not resell them
    Besides, that's a pretty shitty investment system

    And I agree. I personally collect them so I can pose them on my shelves.
    But there are people out there who keep them sealed hoping for higher resell value later on. Which is just a waste of space in my opinion.
