Hello! Ugh, I am so sorry for neglecting my poor blog. I how so much to write about, but seem to be lacking the time to do it. But let's not dwell on that and get right to the point: my Iron Man Nendoroid came! I actually got it quite a while ago (I think it came the second week of April...) and I love it! It looks exactly like the promo pictures, including the little diorama of New York City on his base. I was super worried they were going to have to change it to a plain base (which he also comes with) due to manufacturing difficulties, but nope, there it is!
My poor husband had wanted to surprise me and hadn't told me when Iron Man had been shipped out. I was getting anxious about it because I kept seeing other people with their Iron Man's online and kept pestering him about it. Finally, he caved and told me that mine had shipped the previous week and that it should be here soon (I chose SAL shipping; there's no tracking and it usually takes one to one and a half weeks for things to get to us). I was actually kind of glad he waited to tell me; that meant a week's shipping time had already passed and I hadn't even known it was coming (I'm...kind of impatient when it comes to shipping). I had to wait an extra to get him after he was delivered since we weren't home when the postperson came (we have three or four different postal workers who deliver our mail and they are of various genders) and the management office was closed by the time we got off of work. We went and picked him up the next day, and this is what greeted me when I opened the box:
It's nice because it keeps the figures and what not safe, but it also makes the boxes very bulky and can add to shipping costs since sometimes you have to ship orders in multiple packages. AmiAmi is a great website though, and I highly recommend purchasing from them.
The box itself is pretty cool; it's foiled, so it's super shiny. Our other Nendos' boxes have been matte, so the "sparkle" on Iron Man's box was a nice touch, and very fitting for him. Here are some gratuitous shots of his box!
Overall, I'm very happy with my Iron Man Mark 7 Hero's Edition Nendoroid and I'm glad the long wait for him is over!
Thanks for reading!
