Sorry for the long delay everyone, but I ultimately have another review to parcel with you all today ! Taking the foreground today will be Nendoroid # 390, Levi, from Shingeki no Kyojin~ !
Levi comes in a standard-sized box in the typical post-300 design. All Shingeki no Kyojin Nendoroid boxes ( except the Colossal Titan Playset ) come in the color brown, although Mikasa ‘ second box came in a slenderly lighter shade .
Reading: [Review] Nendoroid 390 – Levi
In summation to Levi himself, the box comes with the boast case shot and sheath equipment whole for the 3D steer gear, a Survey Corps cloak, spiraling effect parts for his singular fighting moves, two extra expressions, two bend legs, two bent arms and hands for holding the dual blades, two blades, and a extra bended branch .
Like Mikasa, Levi comes with a longer-than-average arm for the stand and a feather foundation. There are two different connectors to the figure ; one for use with the 3D manoeuver gear and the other without. Included is besides an extra neck joint and a limited attachment to use with backdrops .
Let ’ s take a closer look at Levi from all four sides ! ( ●ᴗ● )
The paint problem on the rule is a little sloppy… but he ’ south however super adorable ! Levi has a quite stoic default option construction, and he comes wearing his military uniform while sporting his signature cravat. He has all the distinctive Nendoroid joints, but like Mikasa, Levi ’ s legs are connected by ball joints that allow for a greater range in movement than convention .
Let ’ s now take a closer look at all the optional parts and accessories that come with Levi ! ٩ ( ｡•ω•｡ ) و
First up is the 3D maneuver gear equipment and blades!
The scabbards and gasoline canisters are attached to the main device by a ball joint so they won ’ thymine restrict posing ampere much. Extra blades can not be removed from the scabbards, and there are no parts included to simulate the steel wires that come out of the device .
The blades are permanently attached to the operational devices, and as you ’ ve credibly noticed, they are besides not tethered to the independent device that is attached to the body .
Although Good Smile Company has overall simplified the equipment for the Nendoroid, there is still an impressive amount of contingent that went into them .
Let’s give Levi his gear!~ (・▽・)
The 3D maneuver gear plugs into Levi ’ s back, where the stand normally goes. He comes with two hands for holding the dual blades .
You can besides have Levi holding his blades backwards in either bridge player for poses showing off his singular expressive style of fight .
Levi comes with two bend arms in addition to his default straight arms. These arms are connected by a nail down at the shoulder but are besides segmented at the upper weapon for more pose potential .
Next we have the Survey Corps cloak!
Levi belongs to the Survey Corps ramify, so it is only appropriate that he comes with the Survey Corps cloak .
The clothe is made out of fictile, and the hood that goes around Levi ’ sulfur neck is connected to four independent pieces. The front of the clothe is attached by a peg, and the early three sides are all attached by a different ball roast .
unfortunately, deoxyadenosine monophosphate nice as the cloak looks, it is extremely flimsy, and it actually limits a draw of weapon campaign underneath. One of the peg holding a ball joint in set was loosen on mine, and it would keep falling off. It was ace frustrating ( # ` ⌂´ ) /
anyhow, here ’ s how Levi looks with his clothe and 3D manoeuver gear on~
And let ’ s add in the blades as well !
As I mentioned earlier, the clothe very does limit what his arms can do, but there is an afford on the front that you can show his arms out of. Depending on how far you move the front man patch of his dissemble, you ’ ll have more space .
It’s time for some mid-air poses ( ･∀･)ﾉ
Levi comes with two bend legs, which are great for poses where he is travelling through the breeze, whether he ’ randomness reeling himself towards his target after shooting out cope hooks ~
Or in the middle of striking his opposition !
One of the extra faceplates that Levi comes with is a teeth-clenching angry expression. He besides comes with a coiling effects part for his special spin attack .
The spiraling part can be rotated, allowing the attack to come from different directions .
The last faceplate is a arch expression for Levi to use when he ’ s threatening his opponents…
..Or for the famous interrogation scene （・□・；）
Levi is about to kick Eren and beat him up ! !
last but not least, Levi comes with a special branch to recreate this celebrated scene~
Because of how disproportionate Nendoroids are, Levi ’ s foot can ’ t actually reach Eren ’ s face. You ’ ll have to play with television camera angles to make it look like there ’ mho contact, but if you ’ re merely going to display them, Levi can merely threaten Eren with his foot .
Levi is one of five Shingeki no Kyojin Nendoroids presently released. I think good Smile Company has done a fantastic job shrinking him down to Nendoroid mannequin, and I find him absolutely adorable ! The details overall on his cloak, uniform, and 3D tactic gear are impressive for their size, although the key job for his harness could have been better. I love trying to put Levi in different dynamic poses, and the ball joints for his legs and the metameric arms decidedly helped in allowing that. One of the biggest concerns I have with him, however, is that he is quite delicate. A set of his joints are loose, which causes parts to move or fall off when you ’ re trying to pose him. I ’ m not sure if this is equitable a trouble with my detail Levi, but if it is equitable mine, then I decidedly recommend picking him up if you ’ re a fan. Please practice be careful about buying him though, as there are counterfeits/bootlegs of him out there !
anyhow, that ’ s all for today ! Does anyone else have a Levi and experiencing problems while putting him together ? Feel detached to share your comments below. Thanks for reading~ !
