✦ Pokémon X n a n o b l o c k
So a few weeks ago my brother gave me a surprise present! From the title you can guess what it was - Pokémon nanoblock! Not just any Pokémon, it's Pikachu!!
Alright now, Let me take this time to make it loud and clear that I am an absolute POKEMON FANATIC
☆*:.｡. o(≧▽≦)o .｡.:*☆
I eat and breathe Pokémon like you wouldn't even believe it, and yes I am 23 years old but who said Pokémon are for kids?! I've played almost all the generations from Pokémon Yellow till Pokémon Heartgold - I'm left with Pokémon Black/White and XY to play. I am still saving up for a Nintendo 3DS, it is so expensive omg. I forgot to mention that I've watched every single Pokémon episode and am still following the anime religiously!! My favourite Pokémon is Charizard!! IF YOU DO NOT KNOW BADASSERY, CHARIZARD IS YOUR BADASSERY EXAMPLE.
Wow talk about getting carried away...
Anyway I've contemplated for a long time about getting the Pokémon nanoblock because it is not cheap. Now that my brother had bought this for me, I feel obligated to get Charmander, Bulbasaur and Squirtle to complete the set...
Product: Pokémon X n a n o b l o c k
Where you can purchase this from: Kinokuniya Singapore
Nanoblock is a product of Japan and is basically mini Lego! Besides Pokémon, They have Sanrio, Rilakkuma, Disney characters and famous landmarks all over the world like the Tokyo Tower, Statue of Liberty and the Sydney Opera House etc.
Here are the mini contents of the pack:
Everything is so tiny!! This is definitely not recommended for kids. They are very easy to lose so I would suggest you to do it on a tray or a clutter-free table. Even though there are 2 extra pieces for every shape, once you lose them, that's it, the block is gone forever - it will be like finding a needle in a haysack. Oh, the pack also has a detailed pictorial instruction included.
It was difficult to hold the pieces, let alone try to stack them together because they are so fragile, a slight jerk and you'll dismantle your figurine. In the manual it is stated that they have a tool that makes the assembling of the nanoblock easier but I did not have that. Maybe if you are doing a more difficult set like a landmark, I would suggest you to get the tool.
In total I took 20 minutes to complete. It is fun once you get a hang of it, though it can get a little frustrating because I am so clumsy, I kept accidentally plucking Pikachu's tail off (¬_¬)
Here is Pikachu completed!
H O W A D O R A B L E I S T H I S ♥♥♥
You can't really tell the size from the pictures but the height is probably the length of your thumb, and the ear is the size of your pinky nail!
This will make a great gift for someone who likes the character or someone who is into pixelated artwork, this will be great to have in their collection~
Have a great week ahead, thanks for reading!
