Detective Conan Gets a Nendoroid Petit Figure, Too
posted on by Egan Loo
Shinichi "Conan Edogawa" Kudō, the pint-sized lead of Gosho Aoyama's Detective Conan manga and anime, is the latest character to get the Nendoroid Petit figure treatment from Good Smile Company. The special edition of the 75th manga volume will bundle a figure of Conan in a soccer uniform on April 14, to commemorate the opening of the Detective Conan: The Eleventh Striker film on the same day. Conan sports the colors of Tokyo Spirits, a soccer team that appears in the manga and in the next film.
The story of the film begins when the Mōri Detective Agency suddenly receives a threatening phone call. Then, a car explodes right before Kogorō Mōri's eyes. If Detective Conan, Kogorō Mōri, Ran Mōri, and the others cannot decipher the coded message that the culprit lays down as a challenge: "Aoi shōnen to aoi shimauma, ue kara no ame" (A blue boy and a blue zebra, rain from above…), they won't be able to stop the next bomb. The threats continue until Conan and the others are at a soccer match between the rivals Ga,ba Osaka and Tokyo Spirits, and the culprit threatens the entire stadium.
