One of my favourite anime and manga series is Full Metal Alchemist. I’ve collected and given away postage stamps featuring the characters and I watched the bad but not terribly bad live-action movie at the theatre when it was released here in Japan a few years ago. It dawned on me recently that I do not own any figures from this series so when the re-release of a couple of the Fullmetal Alchemist Nendoroids were announced I pre-ordered the Elric Brothers but ended up cancelling Edward and got only my favoured of the two brothers – Nendoroid Alphonse Elric.
Nendoroid Alphonse Elric is awesome
Alphonse Elric is such a unique character and his Nendoroid figure really does him justice. The face-plates, the sculpting, the finer details like his blood seal, and armour colouration really makes this figure worth collecting. As a fellow cat lover, I found it hilarious that this awesome figure comes with not one but two cats he can be displayed with, one of which fits in his removable chest plate. Fans like me know that the anime and manga was really about Alphonse and he was by far the stronger of the two brothers.
Roy Mustang or Edward Elric?
I love this figure so much that I have my eye on getting one more from the series. It will either be Nendoroid Roy Mustang or maybe I should complete the Elric brothers collection and get Nendoroid Edward – help me decide!
