It was about three years ago when the last Nendoroid Green figure was released together with Red. The version sculpt was adapted from the manga design. Although the Green figure was finally released, many fans were still looking for the game version of it. All I can say is that the wait if very well worth it. The Good Smile Company just recently released their Nendoroid Green figure.
We can now do a photo where we can do the “Smell ya later!” pose! The design of the Green figure also is adapted from the Pokemon remake FireRed and LeafGreen.
The pre-orders and regular sales for this figure was a hit and I was lucky enough to get a last minute order from amiami! I really liked how convenient and fast amiami‘s delivery is – this was my very first purchase in their site. I’m sure I’ll be ordering a lot more from amiami in the near future – Brock and Misty?
The box design is quite simple, it really doesn’t give you any clue about what the character is or where it’s from. Although it’s a bit literal because the color scheme is mainly – green. Most of the recent Nendoroid boxes are already small in size. You’ll also notice that the way they store the figure base and parts are different from before.
Always be on the look out for authentic seals or stickers. Only purchase your figures from legitimate resellers or distributors.
Since I’m part of those who have been waiting for this figure – all I can say is that this figure did not disappoint. The main figure. Green, is really solid in built and in appearance. Another good thing about this set is the inclusion of the first generation starter’s secondary evolution – I’m really digging the Wartortle figure.
What’s Inside the Box?
The set includes the main figure, the three Pokemon figures (Charmeleon, Ivysaur and Wartorle), face plates, interchangeable arms and hands. The standard base, stand and the extra ball joint are also included.
They packaging of the extra parts are now different as they are now packed similar to the main figure. I think the idea behind this is that since the box are smaller this is the best way to at least store the smaller parts.
This is also the first figure that I saw this kind of packaging – bubble wrap.
Figure Articulation and Details
The paint apps on the figure is pretty well done. If you look at how they did the paint on the hair is really detailed – the transition of the color brown to its darker shade. The interchangeable parts also has indentations on whether the parts are for the left or right side of the figure.
The fanny pack is just attached to its body, well, I can’t imagine how they could’ve done it if it were detachable.
The Pokemon figures are also nicely done, I really liked that they made its design very close to the original. The parts on the Pokemon figures are also moveable so you can have a bit of variety when it comes to posing.
I highly recommend this figure – aside from the inclusion of the first generation’s secondary evolution – the figure is very much worth it. You can check your favorite toy stores to see if they have stocks of the Nendoroid 998 Green figure. The Green figure is also a good match to the Nendoroid Red figure.
You can check out some of my shots with Green – you can really tell that I’ve enjoyed shooting this figure.
