This time, the review will include 12 figures! They are small ones though: it’s the Fate/Stay Night Nendoroid Petit series! Yes, twelve figures, because there is a secret one as well! So watch out if you don’t want to know who the secret is yet, because there’ll be photos of it here!
On a side note, I have only seen the first two episodes of the anime so far, so I only really know Saber and Rin. Don’t expect me to go into detail on all the characters.
When you open the box and put the flap upward, you’ll see it’s a store ready box with every Petit packed separately. The figures are placed at random, but you are always sure to get them all if you buy a full box. Let’s open one of the boxes and see what’s inside!
The first one is one of the two Rin figures! Rin has her twintails packed separately, probably so the surfaces won’t scratch each other during shipping.
She pulled out her weapon already!
All the Petits have a hole in their back for the base stand. It’s a bit hard to move her head around because of her hair getting in the way.
The second one is Ilya in a cute pose. You can remove her hat~
Like the others, she has a hole in her back, but since her hair basically covers her whole backside, there’s also a hole in her hair for the base.
Ilya looks a lot meaner now! She also changed her dress a bit. She doesn’t have a hat though.
But you can use the hat of the other Ilya figure! It fits perfectly~
Here’s one of Sakura, ready to cook. It seems the silver spoon rubbed off on her hand! But since it’s so small it’s hardly noticeable.
Same goes for this one of Saber. Her upper and lower body weren’t connected when I opened the box and the silver really rubbed off on her head. Luckily it’s the backside.
This figure of Rider comes with a separate piece of plastic, to make a magical ring that reminds me of the Nanoha series.
Rider is normally masked. You can remove it and her weapon to change to pose into something pretty innocent and sexy ❤
The last one I’ll go into detail in, is this special one of Saber ready to brush her teeth.
The cup is awesome! It really shows how detailed they can work on these figures. Don’t forget the cup is only 3mm big!
I don’t really have anything to say about the other Petits, so I’ll just show them:
And now it’s time for the secret, so:
How awesome is this! It’s a Petit remake of the second Nendoroid ever! Back then, Nendoroids looked more like this, with =_= expressions. They were later changed into the popular big eyed Nendoroids we have now. I’ve heard people complain about the secret Petit, but personally, I think it’s awesome! Not only shows it how Nendoroids have changed…
… it also has a pull-back mechanism to make it ride~!
And now, three of the Nendoroids compared to the figma versions in a mirrored pose, because I like doing that XD
That concludes my shoot/review of this series! If you are a fan of the series, then they are obviously for you. If you are a bit short on money, you can choose to buy a few. For other Petits, like Death Note, Lucky Star and Vocaloid, I would discourage this, because there are doubles in the boxes because there were only 10 figures + one 1 secret. This isn’t the case anymore, so you’re always sure you’ll get different ones! Of course, if you order them online, it is possible you get them out of different boxes… I’ve also heard some stores swap the figures over different boxes to randomize it even more, which is evil. I guess there’s always that risk. Savest bet is to buy a sealed box, but they can get expensive. The choice is yours. Otacute sells them per 12 so you’re sure to get them all, as I am proof for that. If you are interested, they’re still in stock!
