Astro Bot Nendoroid Pre-orders Open

Astro is heading off on a new mission, as a Nendoroid of the Astro Bot Rescue Mission and Astro’s Playroom games is on the way. Good Smile Company opened pre-orders for the figure. It will cost someone ¥7,000/$63.99. The character is expected to appear in December 2022 in Japan. The launch window for North America is February 2023. However, given the pandemic and worldwide shipping situation, that North American debut could end up delayed. (It’s a common occurrence as of late.)

The Astro Bot Nendoroid comes with only a few different accessories and extras. There are three face plates for the robot. Each one only shows their eyes. One features the character’s neutral expression. Another looks like it could be used when they are exasperated or excited. Finally the third is a happy one. People have a coin for Astro to collect. There are also fuse parts to pull. People can attach items to the robot’s feet to make it appear as though he is hovering in the air.

Here’s a closer look at the figure.

This is the second Sony character to appear in Nendoroid form in May 2022. Pre-orders opened for a Horizon Forbidden West Aloy figure too. While Aloy is the “star” there, her Nendoroid also comes with a little Watcher.

The Astro Bot Nendoroid will appear in Japan in December 2022 and in North America in February 2023. Pre-orders for it will close on June 29, 2022. Astro’s Playroom comes pre-installed on every PlayStation 5.
