Ezreal Nendoroid Role Play Commercial?Ezreal Nendoroid Role Play Commercial?Misc

So the Ezreal nendoroid has been released in Korea already! It came to a surprise for me; I did not expect an Ezreal at all and it has now been added to the already too expensive amount of nendoroids I planned to get this year (from those announced in Wonfest q.q)

I'm new to the community so I dont know if videogames are popular around here, but a few nendoroid collectors should at least know of Ahri, that 'rare' nendo that came out and was exclusive to Riot stores only (I think exclusively in Korea?)
With the announcement of Ezreal, does this mean there may be more League of Legends characters coming out? There are so many so I'm sure they have some kind of game plan doing this (I mean why pick Ezreal lol). The rise of videogames is coming to the nendoroid world, seeing that Overwatch nendos are being released as well.

Anyone interested in getting him NOW can probably try to get him through a Korean proxy? (i have never ordered anything from Korea so I'm not sure about this). The website is here: event.leagueofl... Otherwise, he is expected to become available outside of Korea late May-June.

I also found a video that displays him a la Toy Story mode. It's a really interesting commercial. I've personally never seen a nendoroid commercial (if they exist o.o), so I found this portrayal is interesting. Who knows what is to come up this following year of collecting :)

misacchin3 года назад#20702305That is true. Supply and demand is all that matters. I do wonder, though, since Overwatch and League are arguably rivals, could GSC decide to market one over the other if one of them doesn't get as widely accepted as the other? (so basically, if Ezreal doesn't do as well as the Mei sales or Tracer sales, would it be possible they would decide to ditch one game company over the other?)
I ask this cause I feel like League and Overwatch are niche communities (imo) and I don't really see the average gamer being all over Nendos (not stereotyping, I just can't picture any of my friends getting a League nendo, for example.) Since it's so niche, there could be a possibility that they wouldn't want to keep making figures for such a huge pool of champions for two games.
I might be overspeculating and I don't really know how they manage marketing but I'm intrigued haha.


It all depends on the contracts mostly. Considering that Blizzard is letting GoodSmile sell the Nendoroids on their site and is already having them make multiple ones rather quick, then GoodSmile is going to promote them and Blizzard wants them to. Riot is more interested in hosting the sales themselves. As long as Riot keeps up their exclusivity BS and prevents GoodSmile from being able to sell the figures themselves, then GoodSmile won't promote them and has no real reason to as Riot would be expected to do it themselves. With Overwatch, GOodSmile is the one who is selling them and has to market them to ensure good sales, with League, GoodSmile gets paid for producing them either way.

The games are still pretty popular worldwide and League already has World championships every year. Even if Nendoroids aren't popular with most of the League/Overwatch playerbase in America, some other countries would likely go nuts for them. Besides that, there isn't really figures for most of the characters to begin with. Many people would readily buy a figure of their main out of love for the character.

I also highly doubt they'd make every champion in both games. Blizzard seems ready to make most of the roster, but they'll likely stop after the original group and some of the newer ones may get skipped. Any of the more non-standard body types like Winston or Bastion are bound to be skipped from Overwatch as well. League has over 100 champions already and will prioritize popularity and overall relevance and will likely barely scratch a fourth of the roster if they continue. Ahri is rather Korean themed and was available at the Korean championship. Ezreal is relevant with the new Pulsefire skin and is still a popular choice for the anime crowd. Yasuo is one of the more popular champions and Riot seems to love fanservice for Assassins.

Seiki3 года назад#20683850Ahri was exclusively sold at the 2014 League of Legends World Championship in Seoul, South Korea. She will likely never get a re-release as she was meant as commemorative Championship merch.
As for Ezreal, while he isn't one of the original champions, he still has some history with the game and was the first one to receive an Ultimate skin. Plus with the upcoming Pulsefire Caitlyn Skin, he's back in the spotlight as his Pulsefire skin is getting a bit of an update. The timing on that announcement combined with this Nendoroid could just be coincidence, but it still matches a bit nicely to make him relevant. Are there other more popular champions around? Sure. But Ezreal has relevance and likely has a bit of a nostalgia factor around the Riot office for being one of the older champs. He isn't the first to come to mind as an obvious pick for a Nendoroid, but he is far from an illogical choice to receive one.
As for if more could be coming? Possibly, though Riot is likely going to keep them a bit more exclusive like how the Ezreal Nendoroid & Yasuo Figma are. They may keep a pace of only 1 or 2 every now and again with only a few a year, but they do seem interested in branching out their merchandising. So long as Nendoorids/Figmas keep selling, we could see more slowly trickle in.

Halcione3 года назад#20700205They clearly picked Ezreal because they want to do Taric next. What more reason do you need?
After Taric, I'd be sorely disappointed if they don't do Surprise Party Fiddlesticks.


They should release Taric and then make Co-des for his skins. It's a must (specially Taric of the Fifth Age :) )

misacchin3 года назад#20682319It shouldn't have been cause I think the nendo is sold at a kiosk/ popup shop. I don't read Korean so I can't really say what the price includes. From what I've read it's just at a pop up shop in Korea. I didn't know there were some country exclusive ones before Ahri. It's a jerk move in a way; I also have a small Disney tsum tsum collection and it's not funny how many Japan exclusives there are q.q
I guess it adds value to the figure, like Ahri.
And omg a D.va nendo would be so amazing


Yea exclusives can be a pain. These 2 are exclusive to China ITEM #454735 ITEM #454736. Apparently they are mascots for a Chinese video site, which explains why they are China exclusives. And I think Korra and Naruto are exclusive to NA, due to licensing rights. I'm not sure about any others.

SageGuy3 года назад#20680340That does sound rather expensive for a release price. Is that before shipping? Though it's not the first time a nendoroid has been exclusive to a certain country. There is a set of 2 girls that was exclusive to China, and I think there were a few that are exclusive to North America.
I'll probably get Mei when I have the money, and D.va whenever she is released. But beyond that, I don't know.

misacchin3 года назад#20679316Yep! Of course we can't tell the future. I think it might turn to how well received they are. I also worry that they will be slightly more expensive than the usual nendoroids since at 60,000 wons, Ezreal is around $52 USD. Although the price hasn't been announced here, I would find it expensive for a nendo like Ez to be around that price. I don't know much about Korean economics but hopefully that is what is making Ez so pricey over there :p
I just find it interesting how they're coming out around the same time Overwatch nendos are.

SageGuy3 года назад#20679008Will they make more LoL nendoroids? Possibly. I don't think any of us can predict the future, so that's all anyone can say.
And ahri was only sold during a LoL tournament one year. Making her very limited.
