On the one hand it's somewhat awkward to review a figure I just got. However, on the flip side this means that I not only have a lot of pictures of it, but that I also have thinking about the figure a lot of late. Not to mention I promised reviews like crazy even though I have literally 0 time to do them. So with all that nonsense in mind here's my review/first impressions of Figma #160 Nyaruko from Haiyore Nyaruko-San!
Back view of the box
Figure right our of the box
Nyaruko comes in her trademark (yet sporadically worn in the show) black checkered dress. Weapon-wise she comes with her crowbar and grenade.
(Yes, I know it has some really weird name, but it's literally a crowbar)
(Equally weird named grenade)
That's all she has in the way of accessories. That being said both are pretty fun to use. I can't actually think of something else I'd really want her to come with other than a fork or a psp. I haven't gotten tired yet of having her mug other figures with her crowbar yet either haha.
Late NSFW warning
Accessories: 7 of 10
Nyaruko has 3 faces (which you've already seen at this point, but whatevs)
Default is a cute winking face with a open mouth smile. Great for posing her as a normal girl/idol instead of an alien abomination.
Second is a shouting/angry face, which is perfect for posing her fighting (and effortlessly defeating) her various enemies.
Her third face is her insidious smirk, which is my favorite as you can use it for many evil and perverted situations.
Faces: 10 of 10
I mean what can you say. All I ever asked for is a range of emotions and she's got it.
Due to the ridiculous nature of her series/character it's very easy to find silly and absurd things to do with this figure.
Here we start by defeating Mami
We then transition into "flirting" with Araragi
And finally having "fun" with Melona
My point being she's great for both fighting and perversion.
*Kneels to pray to the unspeakable for this amazing figure
If you like her character, with a little imagination you'll never run out of "things" for her to "do"
Playability: 10 of 10
So if you survived my terrible innuendo then you'll see that I put Nyaruko on the flesh body figma (because of course I would). Though Nyaruko actually stands out in that she looks really good on a lot of figma bodies. I actually spent the bulk of my time just moving her head to different bodies and seeing how she looked.
Now this may seem mundane, but most figmas in my opinion) don't transition bodies and still look good. Nyaruko stands out probably due to her hair color and just looks great (again in my opinion) on many different bodies.
Magical Girl Nyaruko
So my point is hopefully this doesn't get old and I'll be amused swapping her head for years to come.
Staying Power: 8 of 10
(It's hard to just staying power with a new figure)
(I really like this one)
Nyaruko provides alot of options for violence and perversion. I enjoyed her show so obviously I really like her figure. She's a nice figure to shake up a stagnant shelf or desk. A cute girl, who's also a monster, crime fighter and horny lover all in one. Who could resist?
Collection Utility: 8 of 10
I'm not sure yet if I'm in love with this figure or I'm just excited to have a new one after all of this time. I had to look long and hard to find this one too as she's become somewhat rare and pricey. I might look back at her years from now (hopefully) to see if she remained as much fun as she is right now. However, I'm not worried about that at all. The only thing I dislike about this figure is that I'm certain that her giant ahogi will break before the end of my lifetime. Other than that she's pretty great.
Thanks for reading!
