Date Masamune nendoroid #137

Two years ago Phat Company released nendoroids of Date Masamune and Sanada Yukimura http://myfigurecollection.net/item/13757 almost one after another. Date Masamune is my favourite character from the Sengoku Basara series. He’s just too cool not to love him 😀 That’s why I always wanted him on my shelf and didn’t hesitate much and bought him as soon as I had the chance to.

So let’s see the box and the contents:

The base is different from other nendoroid bases. It looks nice, but it’s huge flaw is that there are only a few limited poses for Date. Below you can see how he’s attached to the base.

The figure can fall off easily and the only parts that can be posed are it’s hands and head. Still there are lot’s of limitations with posing. There are some parts to change Date’s way of holding the swords and some nice facial expressions, but it’s hard to find any more dynamic pose for him. I love widely posable figures so Date was a little dissapointing for me.

But there are some nice things about him too. First of all IT’S DATE! :p Additional faces are really nice, he has many swords and the base looks great. Painting and sculpting are also well done so there’s not much to complain about. All in all it’s a nice nendoroid and I wish there were more good quality figures from this series.

Greets and Merry Christmas!
