At WonHobby 38, Good Smile Company showed off Kirby Cafe Nendoroids of Kirby and Waddle Dee. However, these two figures only show up on the Japanese version of the website, with the English version only showing the Pop Up Parade “Karby” version of Kirby as a car from Kirby and the Forgotten Land.
First, here’s how the two Kirby Cafe figures look. Kirby is wearing a chef’s hat and holding a large fork in the unpainted prototype. It also appears it will function like the other Nendoroids based on the character, which means magnets will be in his arms and legs to allow various poses. As for the Waddle Dee, it is holding a dish that looks like another sleeping Waddle Dee under a blanket. It also wears a hat and apron.
Given that these only appear on the Japanese site, it is possible that these sorts of items could perhaps be limited to the one region due to the actual cafes being open in Japan.
As for the Kirby and the Forgotten Land Pop Up Parade figure, it only showed up as an illustrated announcement. Here’s the reveal noting it is on the way too.
This comes on the heels of another Kirby Pop Up Parade figure. One of him riding a star will show up in 2024 too.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land is available for the Nintendo Switch. There’s no release window yet for the Kirby Cafe Kirby and Waddle Dee Nendoroids or “Karby” Pop Up Parade figure.
