NieR Automata Capsule Figures Appear via Gashapon Machines

A new lineup of NieR Automata figures appeared in Japan, and people can get them at random from Gashapon vending machines. Bandai revealed that it is gradually releasing the NieR Automata Ver1.1a Capsule Figure Collection in the first week of April 2024. As of April 4, 2024, the figures have been available in the most populated areas on Honshu island from Sendai to Osaka. [Thanks, Hobby Watch!]

A total of five figures are available in this collection. They consist of 2B, 9S, Pod 042, Pod 153, and a Machine Lifeform. People will have to spend 500 yen to pull a random figure capsule from the vending machine.

Most of the figures will come with a set of stand parts. Bandai has published a guide page to help people assemble the stands. The same page also reveals that people who have obtained a pod (042 or 153) and a character (2B or 9S) will be able to combine the stands for both figures.

Here are the sample images for all five figures in this Gashapon collection:

These are not the only NieR Automata figures to come from the Bandai Namco Group. Bandai Spirits has released SH Figuarts action figures of 2B and 9S in early 2024. It will also launch an Ichiban Kuji lottery that primarily features 2B figures and busts in late June 2024.

The NieR Automata Ver1.1a Capsule Figure Collection is now available in Gashapon vending machines across Japan.
