Kiiin! You better watch out, because Dr. Slump’s very own Arale is dashing into the world of Nendoroid at speeds of up to 500 miles an hour to commemorate the 900th Nendoroid release from Good Smile Company. That’s no small number, which is why it makes perfect sense for them to call on a character with a personality larger than life itself. With this many Nendoroids under their belt, Good Smile Company are no strangers to making a quality product, and Arale Norimaki is no exception. I mean, just take a minute to stop and look at how adorable this is:
Everything about this Arale is picture perfect, from the signature hat and glasses all the way to the overalls and gloves. It’s been a while since I seriously collected Nendoroid, but maybe that needs to change. This little friend is too powerful to ignore, and she even brought along the “Ncha!” cannon to prove it. Speaking of which, there’s a super large number of bonus accessories with the Nendoroid, which makes sense given the special occasion.
This seriously adorable rendition of Arale is going to have you digging for about 4,630 yen and is currently available for pre-order via the Good Smile Company website. Set to release in August 2018, we’ll definitely have to get our hands on one for the office. I mean, who doesn’t want a guardian android mischievously watching over them as they work?
