I might pay massive bucks for a Nendoroid of Earthbound’s Ness
Not like a few of my fellow writers on Destructoid, I’m not a lot of a toy collector. I’ve a number of Zelda collectibles, some Funko POP! figures, and some LEGO units I haven’t bothered to place collectively, however that’s the extent of it. Most of my online game collectibles are books, puzzles, board video games, and the such. I don’t have something towards accumulating toys, I simply hate having to mud small, intricate items. However that’s altering due to Good Smile Firm and its line of Nendoroids.
Very just lately, after having it in storage for greater than a yr, I took my Majora’s Masks Hyperlink Nendoroid out of the field and was blown away by the standard of the determine. I used to be so impressed, I instantly went to Amazon to lastly purchase the Breath of the Wild Hyperlink with Horse determine, however stopped once I noticed the asking worth. These items are costly, and regardless of my love for Breath, I couldn’t deliver myself to spend greater than $70 on the determine. However I might spend that a lot cash and possibly extra for Ness.
I’m a type of horrible players who declare Earthbound is one in every of their favourite video games with out ever having accomplished it. I performed it for the primary time not lengthy after it launched on my uncle’s SNES, however solely had about an hour with it. Final yr I began taking part in it for actual and am very slowly making the march in the direction of the top. I do very a lot benefit from the sport, however my adoration for Ness doesn’t originate from Earthbound. I really like him due to Smash.
Amongst my group of buddies, no person needed to be Ness in Tremendous Smash Bros. They needed Mario, Donkey Kong, and Fox. I began as a Hyperlink predominant, however when Ness was unlocked I gravitated in the direction of him. I cherished his taking part in fashion and the way it was so distinctive from the remainder of the forged. I cherished the truth that he was only a child like me. Principally, I cherished sniping folks with PK Thunder.
That transfer is only one of many who could possibly be made into equipment for a Ness Nendoroid. PK Hearth can also be a chance, as are the assorted weapons he equips himself with all through his journey. His cracked bat, his yo-yo, his robotic physique, his pajama physique, hatless Ness head, his arms holding a peace signal; there is a gigantic quantity of accent prospects.
There could or will not be a line of Earthbound POP! figures coming, however my Ness amiibo is healthier than most something Funko is placing out. For the value they’re okay, however I’m prepared and keen to spend greater than vital to obtain myself a Ness Nendoroid. Hopefully, Good Smile Firm could make it occur.
