Have you heard of Cu-Poche?
Neither had I, until I randomly stumbled on one on www.hlj.com
They're like Uber-Nendos XD
(although sorry, I forgot to take a box pic)
Lookit her... isn't she cute?!
But let's talk about her base... it's metal...
Why, you ask?
Because she has magnets in her feet!
She can stand on her own!
Already a million times better than a Nendoroid (who often can't stand without their stand)
But *should* you want to use her stand, it's awesome! It has not only the magnetic bottom,
but also the claw holder (and a back hole)... for ultimate action posing!
Let us take a moment to look at the Nendoroid Madoka side by side with the Cu-Poche Madoka:
Left: Nendoroid, Right: Cu-Poche
They're both cute... but I think I prefer Cu-Poche!
Also note that Cu-Poche has more joints, so you don't have to change out her arms all the time to get a different pose, as you do with Nendoroids. Cu-Poche Madoka also comes with extra faceplates (3 total) and extra hands (2 sets)... so she is like a Nendo in many ways.
But what if you didn't prefer Cu-Poche, what if you preferred the Nendoroid head?
Well, you can make them work together! The pegs are about the same size, so the
Nendo head will fit on the Cu-Poche body. :)
Cu-Poche Madoka: What'chu mean you no want my head? ;_;
Just one more advantage of the Cu-Poche over Nendos... they come with a bag to store your extra parts in, much like Figma do. :)
If you're interested in getting your own Madoka,
