I’ve seen nendoroids around for ages, they’re a Japanese Chibi/Superdeformed style of figurine made by the Good Smile company.
Many moons ago, I funded only my second kickstarter. I saw it originally on io9.com, and it was a collectable figurine called “Little Maddie”, made by BigShot ToyWorks.
Almost immediately, on the success of that project, BigShot started a Kickstarter for a full set of 4 figures in the same vein, which in fact had been pictured alongside the original Maddie in the campaign. Originally intended to include variant colour schemes, it did get funded for production, at a smaller figure scale, including a new 4″ version of Maddie. I received my goodies a couple of days ago, and this post is to lay out my swag from the Kickstarter.
