iWould you buy Kill la Kill Nendoroid re-releases?n/a

Recently on tumblr, the individual running the GSC blog replied to someone wondering why GSC hadn't pursued re-releasing certain Nendoroids, including those from Kill la Kill, despite aftermarket prices indicating they're still highly desired. In the now suspiciously deleted response, they replied that since the hype for those franchises isn't there anymore, the likelihood of them being re-released is significantly low. The response surprised me since I've seen much less sought after Nendoroids receive re-releases.

I really want to give a rallying cry to GSC to prove we still want the Nendoroids, and possibly more, and that KLK can still be profitable! I know this was done a while ago and it didn't seem to work (mfc link), but I want to see if persistence helps. Considering the Disney and Overwatch Nendoroid reveals, it seems the western market is having a bigger voice in the figure world, and it makes me optimistic!

I made a post on the English GSC page here: [ext link ]

We could also try sending them tweets, too: [ext link ]

Any advice and/or contribution is greatly appreciated! Feel free to to express your own hopes on the Facebook post or tweet them directly on Twitter! Just remember to be respectful! ♥

How many Nendoroids would you buy if they were re-released?

  • 19.59%
    One of them
  • 12.84%
    Two
  • 4.73%
    Three
  • 13.51%
    All four of them!
  • 8.11%
    None - I already have all of them
  • 41.22%
    None - I don't want them

Similar to Sword Art Online, maybe if Kill La Kill makes a movie...but that's highly less unlikely.

I too want those nendoroids, but at the same time so many good nendoroids (imo) are eventually gonna come out. Gotta give my wallet some air to breathe, lol.

ChocolateSpider (3 kuukautta sitten) #18590867Tokyo Otaku Mode restocked a few copies of Ryuko, Mako and Satsuki last month, but I missed Ryuko. But all of them should get a rerelease. Those are some of the most highly sought Nendoroids ever made.
I read about the restock after the fact. I'm glad people were able to get them, but I can help but be a little envious, haha.

I mean, even if the hype has died down in Japan, GSC has been observing what people want in the West. That said, in these cases, they also look to see if they are still popular in Japan (can't be too one-sided). I'm gonna guess that, depending on how well their new KLK scale sells, they might consider a re-release.

Seeing that scale is what gave me some hope, though it'd be a tall order to base fan interest on an expensive, sexy 1/4 scale figure, imo. Still, fingers crossed!

maggie (3 kuukautta sitten) #18594678I tried so hard, I was in contact with mamitan, I rallied double the amount of people needed/that she asked for. I dunno. I'm starting a project to make a Mako Figma myself so I guess that means I've lost hope.
I posted on the Facebook thread, so good luck.

I saw your blog post and the FB post and it's quite disheartening it wasn't enough to be heard by GSC. I wish you the best of luck in making your Mako figma, I'll definitely keep an eye out for it if you post progress pics!

kasumicc (3 kuukautta sitten) #18595497They really should re-release them, those aftermarket prices are awful. And there's a few of us that caught the series well past its prime, so no change to get those figures on release date.
I was one of the people late to the party, too. It was a bit heartbreaking to look up her Nendo and see what people were charging for her NIB. I was at least fortunate enough to grab a pre-order of her goku uniform version (because I'd be damned if I let another get away from me, haha).

The show was shit to begin with. I can't blame them for not rereleasing merch in relation to it.

Lost interest in Kill la Kill, so it's a no for me.

I would buy Ryuko and Mako for sure. The only reason I didn't purchase them yet is because I was hoping their re-release someday.
