Today we’re unboxing Nendoroid #728, the heroine from the highly-rated anime, Spice and Wolf (Ookami to Koushinryou). Holo, the wolf goddess, from the series is a popular character. Already, we’ve seen that the price for the Nendoroid has doubled since it was released and we actually expect it to go up some more.
Our partner SolarisJapan still has the nendoroid in stock. You can get it here before the price goes up even more.
So let’s begin the unboxing.
Here is the box and it’s a standard nendoroid box. The window previews the nendoroid and some of the accessories. You can also see the authenticity sticker in front. Make sure you buy only from verified retailers to make sure you don’t buy a bootleg.
There are also windows on the sides of the box as well as portraits of the different poses that you can do with the nendoroid.
And here’s a preview of the top of the box with the default faceplate.
Time to unbox. The set comes with two extra faceplates. The default faceplate is a standard smiling face showing one fang. She is a wolf. Two extra faceplates are one smug face and one drunk face. The set comes with 2 extra hands parts – one holding an apple an one holding a wooden ale mug. The set also comes with 4 arm parts, a cap, and the standard nendoroid base and support. Make sure you look at the bottom of the box to find the instruction manual.
Here is a closer look at the complete set.
Getting all that plastic out was a bit of a pain. You will need to do some disassembling to take off all that protective plastic.
You can take off the hears. When disjointing the head, make sure you don’t lose that necklace. The tail can also be removed.
And now that we’ve removed all that plastic, we can now mount the figure on the base. Nendoroids don’t have foot pegs like your standard scale figure so you have to attach the support pegs to a hole in her back. It’s a tight fit so take extra care when attaching the support pegs.
I’ve actually had a bit of an accident while attaching the peg to the back. I put too much force and dropped the nendoroid. The result was a paint chip to the hair. T_T
Here we replaced her right hand with the hand part holding an apple.
And now we replace it again while the ale mug, still using the default faceplate.
Now we change the faceplate to the smug face.
Now the smug faceplate with the apple.
Here is one pose that shows off the tail.
For this next pose, you will need to remove the ear parts to put on her cap.
“Hand over the goods.” Holo is using her wits to extort you. What are you going to do?
Here is a view of the back. Forgive the terrible lighting here.
And now we put on the drunk faceplate. For some reason, I think this one looks realy cute.
She’ll drink you under the table.
And here is the pose that I wen’t with when I put her on display.
The paint chip caused by that little accident is an eyesore. I will have to paint over that later.
