Figure Review: GSC Nendoroid Shiina Mayuri

TUTURUUUUUUUUUUUU!!
Hello again blog readers! Since I’m not that busy I’ve decided to post another review this time on GSC’s Nendoroid Shiina Mayuri or Mayushii from the Hit Anime Steins;Gate.

She was released last September at the SRP of 3,333 Japanese Yen (much like other nendoroids)

First we look at her box, the size of the box is the standard size of nendoroids. And she is the 165th character that was released in the nendoroid series.

Now we go through the contents. Mayushii comes with alot of arm parts which is a good thing. She also comes with 3 face plates and her Signature sun hat a Nendoroid base and two…yes TWO!! Metal uuuupaaas. I’ll tackle the differences of the two upas later.

Here’s one of my favorite features of this nendoroid. She comes with a base with a peg connecting to her back. Unlike previous nendoroids that have hooks only. I love the bases with pegs because its more secure and its more playable.

Also one interesting thing they did is that they’ve included numbering on the face plates. They’ve also put some labeling on her shoulders (with L and R respectively). which is a good way to organize the accessories so good job GSC :)

So her ahoge also can be removed so you can place her sun hat properly now for people who will buy this figure, be extra extra EXTRA (yes 3 extras) careful with the ahoge, its very small and fragile so you might lose it or a part may break (like what happened to mine). I suggest you keep the ahoge and just use her sun hat instead.

First off here’s Mayushii with her face plate #1. She is just so adorable with and without her sun hat.

Now I’ll show Mayushii’s accessories which is a lot!. First its her Signature cellphone that she uses in the anime.

And her is the banana accessory :D Mayushii loves bananas but Okarin keeps using it for experiments.

Now for her face plate #2 which is the worried/scared face.

“eeehh Okarin wants to use my bananas for experiments again.”

“Okarin acting so wierd lately….”

Now for her 3rd face plate which is the smiling face plate :) and also with her Fried Juicy Karaage #1. Mayushii is so happy she could eat one :).

“METAL UUUUPAAA”

 Now I’ll answer the question why there are two metal upas in this nendoroid. If you look at the 1st image they look identical but when you look behind both upas the one is for display purposes and one is for Mayushii to hold. 

You can place the metal upa with those two pegs that the upa has and insert it to the holes.

Final Thoughts:

This nendoroid is worth the 3,333 yen SRP. It has tons of accessories , the face plates are adorable and the paint job is awesome. There’s really nothing to rant about this nendoroid. And there are some good things they’ve added like the labeling on the face plates and some parts. Just be very very very careful with her ahoge :).
