Hello everyone,

Time for another review article, and today it will be my first Nendoroid, Filo from Shield Hero. Since this is my first Nendo, some of the review focus may not be on the right things that Nendo collectors would usually want to know. So the feedback from seasoned Nendo collectors is much appreciated as well :)

So to begin, here is the packaging from all standard angles:-

The first thing that hit me when I opened the shipping box was how small the box is for this figure. Of course, smaller the box, the better. I am not sure if this is the standard size for Nendo boxes, but here is a comparison next to Figma Samus box:-

Now, here is Filo with all her faces, parts and accessories in the blister package:-

Perhaps it is standard practice, but I found the accessories to the left in the picture were not actually covered by a tape while right side is covered. I only saw the right side, and (assuming the same for the left) had them all fall out when I was trying to remove the stand from the package. So just a heads up.

Now, finally, onto the figure itself. Here are some pics of Filo right out of the package:-

My first impression was that although it is so small and delicate, it photographs really well! The level of detail is not out of this world, BUT, the detail that is present is very nicely done. There are no paint bleeds that I noticed, the hair has a nice light pink shading (may not be noticeable), and the details in the dress are also superbly painted (like the three little bows in the front, which I did not even know was there in her design)! The bottom of the dress is also a softer material. Here is a close up of her hair pin by the way (note that her hair strand/ahoge can be rotated):-

I should also point out that the stand was something I am still trying to learn how to use. Maybe it is a unique problem for this Nendoroid, but having the stand arm curved outward with the figure seems to not be possible. Her hair would have to be moved further back, and she will be looking down then. So I think the arm has to be positioned such that the curve is inward toward the figure. If anyone has any tips on this, do let me know in the comments. Would really welcome it.

Now, onto some shots with Filo's favorite fish lol :-

The fish is also nicely done, but it is attached to her arm part.

Here also a pic with the power-up Filo received:-

You have to remove the hand, and insert the effect piece to the arm. It does fit in the left arm as well, and the thumb finger and little finger of the effect is almost the same in height, making it look alright in either arm as well.

Here is also a view of the back, and how the wings are connected:-

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/10/15/2541137.jpeg

The wings can be moved up and down, and a little to the front/inward. BUT, they have almost no range backward/outward. This is very much OK because the hair blocks it from moving back anyway. The gap between the hair before and after the ear is what allows for the win articulation to work. You pretty much have to move the wings within the gap. There is also a similar constrain on the arms. You do have to turn the head to the side if you want to raise the arms up a lot like the in the shot with the power-up claw effect.

In conclusion, I really thought it was a very good buy for the price. With the shipping and taxes, it was around 45 USD. I ordered her last minute, last week, right before the orders closed. So was not even sure if I would get her. The accessory count and alternate parts is much better than some of the Figma we receive.

Finally, a shot with a diorama I put together for the first time, to cap off the review :)

So cute, I wanted to preorder her but I already had other orders taking all the budget. Hopefully I can get her before the end of the year to complete my Shield Hero trio.
Although I have the feeling Raphtalia might be slighly annoyed when she arrives.

looool! You might get kicked in that place haha.

Yea, if you have the other two, definitely pick worth picking this up. I am regretting not getting the other two, but I never used to collect Neno figures before this one. Down the road, maybe they will make a Melty one too, to complete the whole team!

Yahallo1 mese/i fa#84935182I originally didn't order her but after seeing how precious she looks, I had to get her and complete the trio!
Thank you for your review and pictures! It just reconfirms that I made the right call!

No problem! :) If you have the other two, then I think picking this one up is a most definite yes! Since this was my first nendo, I was afraid how well they would capture the likeness in this style. But, I think they did a great job with it.

AgentDrafire1 mese/i fa#84900020Filo looks so darn adorable! Aww! I felt like petting her in every single photo! Thanks for the review! I liked how she turned out! I'm still searching for Raphtalia and Naofumi for a decent price too...I'm hoping they all get rereleased soon!
She does! :) Yea, I am banking on a re-release for Raphtalia and Naofumi too. I have noticed that they tend to re-release when the shows come back for another season, so there is a good chance I think.

Milady-Alluca1 mese/i fa#84870477Im glad she came out so cute, thanks for the review c:
I'm still a little irked that her bangs look too tall so her head/face ends up looking too long to me but it's hardly a deal breaker. Im definitely looking forward to getting my girl to join Naofumi and Raphtalia!

No problem :)! It is nice that you have the rest of the gang. I will have to go hunting for Naofumi and Raphtalia to see if I can get them close to retail price haha. Maybe there will be a re-release with season 2 coming.
