Last week I discovered that Good Smile Company had released a set of Nendoroid figures based on the “Tales of” video game series. And because I am addicted to both, there was no way in hell I was not going to have these in my collection.
What I thought was a for sure 6 piece set ended up arriving as a retailer pack of 8 blind box figures, meaning I had to open every one and pray with my fingers crossed that I opened a complete set. Which I did!! I was even lucky enough to acquire the “secret” figure of Leon Magnus from Tales of Destiny (furthest left in the picture).
Beside Leon are: Yuri & Estelle from Tales of Vesperia, Asbel & Sofi from Tales of Graces, and finally Jude & Milla from Tales of Xillia.
There was a bit of a mishap when I was snapping Leon onto his base as his sword snapped off from his hand and this will be remedied with model glue this weekend. Thankfully the other figures with swords had theirs come separately so there were no more broken pieces. The only other issue I had was with Sofi’s pigtails. I had to twist the plugs in which took a few attempts as simply pushing them in was a complete failure.
Overall, extremely happy with these guys and now Haruhi, Yuki and Asahina (Haruhi Suzumiya Summer Collection Nendoroids) have company.
