The Good Smile Company has announced its latest Nendoroid, Tracer from the monolithic Blizzard shooter, Overwatch.
What is a Nendoroid, you ask? They’re small, partially-hand-painted display statues of pop-culture characters, somewhat akin to the Funko Pop Vinyls, except fully articulated and posable. “After a long, hard day everybody needs something to calm their nerves,” reads the Good Smile Company’s website, “The adorable palm-sized figures with a ‘chibi’ design are here to keep you company!”
The Tracer Nendoroid includes a transparent armature to allow you to pose Tracer however you wish without also worrying about balancing the statue on a flat surface. It features accessories such as the blue lightning-styled streak from the generator she wears on her back and chest, interchangeable legs, a Pulse Bomb, and to make the statue look like her throw animation, a replaceable hand that’s not holding a pistol. It even includes an articulated section of hair on her forehead, allowing you to pose her like her “Heroic” highlight intro.
The Tracer Nendoroid will set you back around USD$ 39 (JPY¥4,537) before tax and shipping, and will be available in August from the Good Smile online store. Preorders are open now.
In other Overwatch news, the game is currently on sale at Xbox Live for USD$ 50, having just wrapped-up its Year of the Rooster event. There have also been some changes to Roadhog and Winston on the public test realm.
