New Nendoroids 20th anniversary

Good Smile Company announced on its official Twitter that it would celebrate its 20th anniversary with new Nendoroids. The latest figures are modeled after “Coming of Age Day” in Japanese society. The female versions will cost 1,545 yen (before tax), while the male versions will cost 1,364 yen (before tax). Preorders are open now through February 18, 2021. Both will release in May 2021.

“Coming of Age Day” is a holiday in Japan where people who turn 20 that year celebrate their first step into adulthood. Good Smile is using this holiday as a motif to celebrate its own 20th year in the industry with its new Nendoroids. The line of new figures includes male and female versions to collect. The female version contains four furisode kimono in red, blue, yellow, and pink. The male version contains four hakama in black, white, red, and blue. Each box contains 4 bodies/varieties. Fans can purchase the figures online through Good Smile’s shop, or any of its international partners.

Good Smile is well-known for its figures. Other new Nendoroids from the company include Nier and Grimoire Weiss from NieR Replicant and a line of Inuyasha figures.

The “Coming of Age Day” new Nendoroids for Good Smile’s 20th anniversary are available to preorder now. Preorders will close on February 18, 2021.
