One of Fire Emblem‘s swordsmen and the “punished” protagonist of MGSV are both getting their own Nendoroid figures from Good Smile Company.
Good Smile Company is the parent organization behind the Figma, Nendoroid and other collectible series. The Figma collectible figurines often depict characters with a high amount of detail with several joints and interchangeable parts, while the Nendoroid line features “chibi” or super-deformed versions of gaming and anime icons. These loosely resemble bobble-head figures, but with more details, parts and points of articulation.
Fire Emblem fans can now pre-order a Nendoroid figure of Marth through Good Smile’s official website. The skilled-swordsman has appeared in such titles as Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryu to Hikari no Tsurugi, Fire Emblem: Awakening as a DLC character, and as a playable fighter in the Super Smash Bros. series. The collectible figure is modeled after his appearance in Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem – Heroes of Light and Shadow; the Nendoroid includes an interchangeable face, shield and three swords:
Last month, Good Smile Company and Hideo Kojima revealed the final version of the Venom Snake Nendoroid. From the recent Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the Venom Snake Nendoroid features the battle-damaged hero in the black Sneaking Suit; a plethora of additional items are included, featuring a Fulton balloon, three prosthetic arms, the Phantom Cigar, cardboard box, iDroid with hologram, pistol and an assault rifle:
Both the Marth and Venom Snake Nendoroid figures are available to pre-order through Good Smile’s official website, but only for a limited time; the pre-order window for Venom Snake ends on 10/14, while the Marth pre-order window closes on 10/28.
While the pre-order windows close early through GSC, Marth and Venom Snake can still be pre-ordered through Play-Asia and other collectible resale sites. Venom Snake is expected to begin shipping in April 2016, with the Marth Nendoroid following in May 2016.
