In 2018 Good Smile Company (GSC) added a new series to their Nendoroid line, called Nendoroid Dolls.
Head parts can be swapped out with the existing 1000 Nendoroid figures for all sorts of new display options!Good Smile Company
I’ve been intrigued by this series from the start but it wasn’t until GSC announced a new original character that I finally decided to take my 1st step into the world of Nendoroid Dolls and order one for my collection.
On June 24, 2021 GSC opened pre-orders for a new Nendoroid Doll named Inventor: Kanou.
They teamed up with the talented illustrator Rella, also known as Rellakinoko to bring fans this original character.
The release date for this steampunk inspired inventor is February 2022.
A new original character created from a collaboration with a popular illustrator is joining the Nendoroid Doll series! Illustrator Rella’s original steampunk style character “Inventor: Kanou” is joining the Nendoroid Doll series!
Nendoroid Dolls feature the same Nendoroid heads, but an alternate doll-like body that is highly articulated and can easily be dressed-up into different outfits while still remaining a palm-sized action figure!
The figure features a stylish hat, winged bag and more.
Be sure to add Inventor: Kanou to your collection!Good Smile Company

I’m excited to own my 1st Nendoroid Doll.
I hope I don’t get addicted to these tiny characters (ok, who am I kidding. I most certainly will become addicted)
