Make sure you keep your dog away from furnaces around this figure! Good Smile Company will release a Nendoroid figure of Dio Brando from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood. Pre-orders are open from May 6 to June 23, 2021.
The Dio Nendoroid will ship out on December 2021, and due to licensing restrictions, it will only ship to Canada and the United States. (The figure will also release in Japan in November.) The figure will cost $54.99 / ¥5478.
This Dio Nendoroid is the version of the character from Phantom Blood, prior to his transformation into a vampire. He comes with three face plates, a rose, and the Stone Mask. His expressions are an arrogant smirk, a serious face, and his signature WRYYY yell. You can also turn him into a disembodied head. If you pre-order from the Good Smile Company online store, you can get a bonus stone mask accessory for him to hold.
