Yoko Nendoroid


This nendoroid of Yoko from Gurren Lagann must be one of the best nendoroids ever. Not only does she come with her sniper rifle, she has so many extra parts that you can make almost any pose you want. Not to mention that the top and bottom  half of her body are also separated so you can move her torso to the side a bit, which isn’t possible with other nendoroids.


I literally spent hours playing around with all of the pieces and seeing which poses looked best. I took some pictures of a few of them here:


This is how Yoko looks out of the box. I initially had some trouble positioning the stand so it looks like she’s just floating there.


FEED ME! (j/k), Yoko’s sniper rifle is split into three different pieces so that you can attach a strap onto it. The strap is made out of plastic, but it’s really flexible so you don’t need to worry about snaping it. The only problem I had with positioning the gun was that the stand was in the way so I couldn’t have Yoko carry the gun with the barrel pointing up a bit more.


I didn’t notice at first, but one of Yoko’s hands has a hole in it where a peg from the gun is supposed to fit. This allows her to hold on to it without it falling off. I also noticed that the inside barrel of the gun isn’t painted, which is unfortunate, but I guess it’d be really hard to paint the inside of such a small hole.


I’m sure someone can come up with a good caption for this picture 😉


This last pose is my favourite, I actually didn’t like Yoko’s angry face very much, and the kinda sad-looking/begging face just looks weird on a nendoroid.
