nendo flandre get

had to pick it up at the post office.
was a tough decision between pads or flanders, but like I said before, flandre was really limited and harder to get I guess.

I took more pictures than my nendo remi post, but I was ultimately feeling very lazy and took lazy pictures.

so you get similar parts to the nendo remi, there are just some minor differences that I'd like to point out though.

the hat in particular was the first thing that I realized something was off, it was very loose. unlike remi's hat which fits perfectly on her head, flandre's hat would slide off her head by any slight movement and generally would not stay on well like her sister's hat.
another oddity I found was that some parts of the figure were very soft. if I put any more pressure on, let's say her skirt, I would probably make a nasty imprint. it's just that malleable.

the first thing I decided to do was to see if there really WAS a big similarity between remi and flan, as mentioned by other people who bought them. these two are the normal faces for both figures, I'll leave you to guess which face is which...

she also suffers the same small feet problem that I really hated with remi nendo. it's much easier for me to set remi now without a stand, but it's still quite hard to get flandre to do the same with those tiny feet. had to make her balance on an egg until I prepared the stand for her.

I forgot to take a picture of it, but the base and stand is nothing spectacular. the background is just a blue silhouette of her wings' crystals. I prefer remi's stand much more in this regard (bats oo).

her wings are really huge, longer than remi's wings and surprisingly easier to put on. the wings stay on her back much better than remi's do and generally look better.

her weapon of choice, "laevateinn", is different from remi's gungnir in the way it's held. since it's rather curvy, the imprints that are in her hand are shaped to hold any part of the laevateinn unlike the gungnir, which has a part that needs to be connected to a hole in remi's hand. however flexible in use it may be, it's still rather flimsy and would fall out of her hand with a slight touch.

overall, I still think remi is a better figure, but flandre is great in her own way. the usual color scheme is done well, and now my remi does not have to be alone anymore. I guess I'll get pads next time, another step closer to an EOSD harem on my desktop.


  1. So cute. Every time I see someone show off their Flan with some nice photos I feel more regretful that I didn't get her ;_;

  2. ^ very cute, and good pictures too!

  3. They are cute! Makes me sad that I can't own everything I want.

  4. wow, I just noticed there's a scar thing on her right eye (look at the picture with the two heads..)

  5. The dynamic duo! It's true they look better together.

  6. lol very cute. makes me kinda wish i had them
