Hello everyone and welcome again to another segment of Hobby Corner. Previously I unboxed and reviewed Nendoroid #188 Milhiorie Biscotti from the anime series Dog Days. Today, I will unbox and review Nendoroid # 262 Ricotta Elmar which also came from the same series. I originally wanted to have Leon for my 2nd Nendoroid but acquiring her proved to be challenging and expensive at the same time, so I settled for Ricotta since she was the only one available on stock.
I originally planned this to be a video review but I made an error while recording the whole thing so you might notice most of the pictures are taken from a video. Now that we have removed Ricotta from the box, let’s try to look on the contents:
A- Nendoroid Ricotta Elmar (Duh!)
B- White Flag
C- Emblem Art Crest
E- Cannons (X4)
F- Aggressive Face
G- Sad Face
H- Different Arms
And with this salute pose we have now completed checking all the things about this Nendoroid. Let me now provide my feedback regarding this figure…
- Beautifully made for the body, especially for the face plates.
- Magnet at the end of the connector means easy access to attach and re-attach the Nendoroid on the base to stand. Because of this, you eliminate the risk of scratching or damaging the part of the Nendoroid where you attach the end of the connector.
- The legs won’t fall off even if a little pressure is applied. I did not attempt on trying to actually remove it, and will never do it ever.
- Removable cape means you have the option to have her on poses without that clothing.
- Cannons won’t move upward which feels lazy on GSC’s part.
- Book accessory least pleasing.
- Some of her parts feels loose and is ready to fall off.
- Not much articulation can be made.
- GSC could have included a sitting pose since Ricttoa rode that bird during the last episodes of season 1 of Dog Days in which could have been a great addition.
Overall, this is a great Nendoroid to own, especially for fans of Dog Days.
