Good Smile Company’s newly announced Nendoroid Vault Boy action figure includes four different faces and several arm and leg pieces for Fallout’s famous mascot. Seems like a waste to me. They had me at angry middle finger.
Just look at that face. The brow. The frown. The entire posture just screams sass.
I am not even that big of a Fallout player, but I must have him. I shall stand him facing Optimus Prime on my work desk, his diminutive form defying the leader of the Autobots in perpetuity.
As I mentioned earlier, there are three other faces available, in case annoyed defiance isn’t your bag. There’s also car salesman, vacant happiness, and my second-favourite, chewing on a leg. Or arm.
The new Vault Boy Nendoroid is available for preorder now through October 10 on Good Smile’s website for around $US50 ($73), with a planned release in March of next year. After that, you’ll probably be able to find him in that weird video game collectible section of Target.
In closing, wheeeeeeee.
