In December 2021, Good Smile Company announced it would work on a Shantae Nendoroid. Now, orders opened for the heroine. The Half-Genie Hero will show up in stores in 2023. She’ll appear first in May 2023 in Japan. Then, in July 2023, she’ll show up worldwide. She will cost ¥8,900/$56.99. That gets people the main Nendoroid and a smaller figure of her in her Monkey Form.
As is common for a Nendoroid, Shantae will have three face plates. In one she is smiling. The second features her winking. The third is an angrier appearance. She comes with two ponytail parts. One is a normal one, while the other has her using it as a whip to attack. She has extra hands, to recreate her dance. She has a fireball to hold too. Finally, there’s the aforementioned purple monkey.
Here’s a closer look at some potential poses.
There’s also a trailer that compares the figure to Shantae’s various incarnations.
