Four Top Stores That Sell Nendroid Plastic Figures in Akihabara

 

 

The Nendoroid series is a series of plastic figures created by the Japanese Good Smile Company in 2006. They depict characters from anime, manga or video games and usually designed to have a big head and tiny body to give them that recognizable, unique cuteness. 

The good news is that you can easily buy them in Akihabara. Here are four stores that have a great selection of Nendoroid figures.

 

 

Volks Hobby Heaven Akihabara

 

 

Volks Hobby Heaven Akihabara is a famous hobby shop with one of the largest selections of plastic figures. There are so many of them a whole day may not be enough to check them all out.
