Oh man, Nenderoids are so freaking ugly. I can never understand how they sell as well if not better as 1/8 figures.

You registered for that? Your "freaking ugly" is another man's "über cute".
Aren't they also cheaper than figures four times the size? (the only one I have came free with a Negima DVD)

I'd buy one if I was a figurine collector but yeah I don't think I'll ever be. And yeah, it's uber-cute alright still I'm very biased anyway,

As a friend of mine put it, if you don't like Mako you're factually wrong. I don't even give a damn about figurines but I still want this.

Never dissed the character, just Nenderoids in general. They're weird and chibi in my opinion.

If you don't understand why other people would like "chibi" things, then I can't help you.

The "beat up" face kind of freaks me out, though, in its 3D form. It's very Akira.

That's the great thing about Nendies is that you don't have to use a face like that if you don't wish to. Plus, I do believe the article mentioned that that face is ONLY available if you order through the GSC site. So if you get it from AmiAmi or Hobby Search or any other site, just the regular faces will come with it.

Mako looks very cute and they captured her essence very faithfully. I like the picture with the two gals together.

Here's a link to Big Bad Toy Store's page. I apologize for me constantly shamelessly advertising for them but I have been very satisfied by them from personal experience.

I adored Kill la Kill (so nostalgic) but I honestly wouldn't want to be caught dead with the Senketusu's transformed mode. Maybe I'll settle for these but I have to watch my pockets.
