Danganronpa Nendoroid Pins

More Danganronpa characters are joining Good Smile Company’s Nendoroid line, though not as figures just yet. Pre-orders opened for a new series of Nendoroid Pins based on Danganronpa characters.

The Danganronpa Nendoroid Pins reflect the distinctive chibi style of the figure line, with an enlarged head and face and smaller body proportions. The pins themselves have a base of cast zinc alloy and an electroplated black finish. They stand two inches tall, and include a custom Nendoroid stand and packaging. Deluxe pin backings are also included. 

The characters covered by the initial lineup span come from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Junko Enoshima, the Ultimate Fashionista, represents the first game’s cast. Ultimate Gamer Chiaki Nanami represents the second game’s roster. Monokuma, as the series mascot, has played a role in all Danganronpa titles to date. Of the three characters, only Monokuma has an actual Nendoroid figure, released back in 2013. Chiaki received a 1/8th scale figure, while Junko appeared in the Pop Up Parade line. A Junko Nendoroid is in development.

Unlike some of the other announcements put forth at WonHobby 35, Good Smile Company opened pre-orders for the Danganronpa Nendoroid Pins on the Good Smile US store as well as its Japan and international outlets. On the US store, each pin costs $14.99 USD. The pins are listed for release in May 2022. Orders through the Good Smile US store will ship only to the US and Canada.

The pre-order period for the Danganronpa Nendoroid Pins will last until May 31, 2022. Both games represented by the pins are available on PS4, PS Vita, Android, iOS, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
