It’s now time for our third Figure Friday and today we’ll be taking a look at Megumin from KonoSuba! As we can see from both the image above and below, Megumin has a similar styled box to Aqua. This time around, however, the box is a bit wider than the previous ones due to the size of what’s inside (Megumin’s hat).

We can also see that as number 725, Megumin is one of the newer Nendoroid releases and as such she is the most expensive Nendoroid I own. I believe she just came out in the Fall of 2017. Even so, she already has another Nendoroid confirmed to be coming out in the future which is a school uniform version.

Once again, we can see some of the assembly variations on the back of the box, and there are more pictures like these on the sides of the box as well. Like with Aqua we again have circular windows into the box on either side.

Pay attention to the explosion graphic in the bottom right image on the back of the box. This is a piece that comes with Megumin, but it’s not exactly the easiest piece to find.

You’ll notice that this piece isn’t included in the picture below of the pieces she comes with. This piece is actually found taped in between the outer and inner portions of the box and so it’s quite easy to miss. I originally forgot about it until i was putting all the extra parts away after assembly and noticed I never took it out.

These are all the pieces that come with Megumin with the exception of the explosion graphic as noted above. There is actually a second, smaller platform and stand for the explosion graphic tucked beneath the platform for Megumin.

As usual, I try to make my assembly based on how I feel represents the character as a whole the best and so I ended up with the assembly pictured below. Unfortunately, I originally was going to go with a very similar setup, but Megumin’s left hand (our right) for holding her staff wouldn’t stay attached to the arm correctly so I ended up with this instead.

Other than her one hand not working for me, I have two other, smaller complaints. The first is that her staff is not gripped as tightly as the spear for Kyouko or the staff for Aqua. This means that while maneuvering her arm into position, the staff falls out too easily.

The second complaint is that her hat is basically just balancing on top of her head. I would have preferred it to be a more snug fit, but as long as you don’t plan on moving her around too much after assembly, this, like her staff, isn’t much of an issue.

Finally, we’ll close by mentioning the future of Megumin Nendoroids. As I mentioned at the start, there is already a second Megumin Nendoroid announced which is a school uniform version.

While more of Megumin is always good, this seems to be a bit of a waste since we already have a Yunyun school uniform Nendoroid. It seems like they made this second Megumin to be part of a matching set with the Yunyun.

Instead, I would have rather had the second Megumin be the Winter variant since that is a more unique outfit. Hopefully in the future we will get a Winter variant of Megumin, along with one for Aqua, because I’d be interested in that as well.
