DORAEMON, one of the most beloved character properties worldwide, originated as a manga (graphic novel) series created by Fujiko F. Fujio in 1970. It later became a popular anime series and product franchise in Japan that continues to be a smash hit worldwide, especially in Asia. The comedy series depicts the adventures of Doraemon, a blue cat-type robot from the 22nd century, who travels back in time to help a boy named Noby by using various secret gadgets procured from his Four-Dimensional Pocket. Episodes often involve lessons for young viewers about honesty, cooperation, courage, and respect.

Over 140 million copies of the manga have been published. DORAEMON also holds the largest box office attendance record in Japan of any movie franchise, toppling Godzilla, with 34 feature films released to-date and over 100 million tickets sold last year alone. The property’s first 3D feature film, Stand By Me Doraemon, is set for release in Japan in August.

S.H.Figuarts Nobi Nobita Review

In the middle of this year, exactly on August 2014, Bandai has just reissued S.H.Figuarts Nobi Nobita, a character from Doraemon anime film. At this opportunity, I would give you my review for S.H.Figuarts Nobi Nobita, ok let's go to the review.

Comes with about 12 cm for the figure height, Nobi Nobita get an outer box that dominate with yellow color, just like the color of his shirt. When you lift the box, it's feel heavy, not like other SHFiguarts figure box.


A set of this figure include:
- Main figure
- Hand parts
- Additional face part x 4
- Take-copter
- Kuukihou (Air Cannon)
- Korobayashi
- Michibiki angel
- Esper hat
- Baseball Bat
- Baseball Glove
- Cushion (Pillow)
- Gun x 2
- Manga

This figure gets a lot of accessories, it's why when lift the box, it's feel heavy.



S.H.Figuarts Nobi Nobita joint articulation not as much as S.H.Figuarts from Kamen Rider series, but it's feel solid. I think you do not need to be worry if the joint articulation will loose.

Just like Robot Damashii doraemon, this figure also use some kind of magnet, to attach the take-copter on the head (look my video review for the detail).

You can freely use your own creativity to make a pose Nobita become more attractive with a suitable expression.
