To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
He was actually extremely difficult to get into his stand. I couldn't even get him to budge until I tried the blow dryer trick, and even then it was still a little difficult. Aside from that, I love this figure! He has so many options when posing him.
Gakupo is crazy cute, but he has his fair share of faults.
Gakupo comes with three faces (default smile, open-mouthed yelling, and a silly happy face), two arms (bent and straight at a different angle), a sitting bottom, sword and scabbard, a hand holding a fan, and his trusty eggplant steed. Why the eggplant has legs, your guess is as good as mine, but it does.
While he is arguably one of the cutest nendoroids ever, Gakupo has some crazy flaws. The first one being he is insanely delicate. While every nendoroid is delicate, Gakupo outshines them all with his fan hand and his cowlick. When applying his fan hand to his arm, I am in constant fear it will snap off. While it is something a little bit of superglue can fix, I would rather not take the chance. His cowlick isn't as delicate as the fan, but if bent too much it could possibly break. The next issue I have with Gakupo is the fact that his parts don't always fit. Despite numerous members of my family trying, we could not get his ponytail to fit all the way into the back of his head, and with the delicate nature of this figure, none of us wanted to push too hard and accidently break him. Another issue with parts not fitting is his stand. Honestly, I'm not sure why this is still a common problem with nendoroids. Over 200 had been made when Gakupo came out, and despite trying the blow-dryer trick multiple times, his stand would not go in. The final issue is not with the figure itself, but the box. When he arrived, the box was in the poorest condition I have ever received a nendoroid box in. It was dented all over, and the plastic window in the front was completely ripped off.
I came across more critical than I would have liked with this review, but none of my complaints should deter you from getting Gakupo if you really want him. He is really cute, and can do plenty of poses. He looks nice with his nice sculpt and paint job. Overall, I would recommend him, but only if you have several other nendoroids.
I loved it even though his arms and etc comes off VERY easily I still loved this product! But shipping wise was a pain for me since it finally arrived on the last day but it was somewhat worth it in the end he's so cute next to my other nendoroid Kaito.
I love the figure! Love Nendoroids. I'd love them even more if my package hadn't come with a broken toy. I received the package and opened it to find that his hair had been snapped and I have to return and order it AGAIN. Otherwise, I would be completely satisfied with the Gakupoid...
