I love Kirby, we know this. I also love silly little things.
Earlier this year, Nanoblock released a Kirby blind box series that included three different Kirby’s to build, a Waddle Dee, a Kracko, and a Meta Knight. Please look at my sweet little guys.
While they are sold out on the official Nanoblock website, it does look like there’s still stock around at The Gamesmen.
While they’re excellent, there are actually even more Kirby Nanoblocks coming that currently have a vice grip on my brain. These sets are out to celebrate Kirby’s 30th birthday, which is a milestone for any little guy.
Firstly, there’s a 30th anniversary Kirby flying on a star. Very original, very iconic, you love to see him in all his round glory.
This image brings me joy. The boy, despite blocky, continues to be round. His roundness knows no bounds. That little smile? It ventures deep into my heart. He waves to me, and I wave back.
And then there’s the Kirby Dreamland set, which features Kirby on his star, Waddle Dee with his umbrella, King Dedede hanging out, and even Chef Kawasaki with his frying pan. All these friends gather around the Whispy Woods.
I love them all very much. Somehow, with only a few little blocks, they have managed to capture the sweet essence of the Kirby friends. It brings me great joy to know this exists.
I’m a bit of a Nanoblock fan, with a few Pokemon sets under my belt. But Kirby nanoblock sets are something I’ve only dreamed of. LEGO, take notes. Release a Kirby LEGO set right now, please and thank you.
Unfortunately, they are not available yet. Thankfully, they are available for preorder and will be released on November 1st of this year.
