A Brief History
As far as I know, there were no dedicated Nendoroid-related sites for international viewers back then around early 2010. We (Indonesians) usually post news and updates on our local forums. Therefore, we decided to set up a dedicated blog for Nendoroid, targeted toward international readers, back then around mid 2010.
Initially, we used the name “Animaster Talks Nendoroid“, since it was part of my own personal blog (Animaster Talks) previously. However, it was changed into Nendonesia later on, and we asked some fellows from our local forum to help posting Nendoroid-related articles into the site.
We have also partnered with some established Nendoroid-related sites, including the French Nendoroid blog and Spanish Nendoroid blog as well. Some comrades from Tsuki-Board (a.k.a MyFigureCollection) help us with news tip and pics as well. ^^
Well then, in short, Nendonesia serves as a blog, a news source, and a community for Nendoroid fans. ^^
We have already established a few channels for Nendoroid fans to connect with each other:
- Forum: under construction
- Facebook: http://facebook.com/nendonesia
- Facebook Group for Indonesian: http://facebook.com/groups/nendonesia.id
- Twitter: http://twitter.com/nendonesia
- DeviantArt: http://nendonesiada.deviantart.com
- Tumblr: http://nendonesia.tumblr.com
- Flickr: http://flickr.com/groups/nendonesia

… and then email your site URL and a 168×40 sized banner to nendonesia[at]gmail[dot]com. It’s easy! XD
Well, I guess that is all about us. Feel free to ask, comment, or send in your suggestion here. ^^
hmmm….. can i know where is the official office? XD cuz for some reason i just wanna met you guys, i don’t have any friend that have a nendoroid in here -___-” and the other problem is i only have one nendoroid, well i think it will be fun if we can mix it up together :’D
Well, we have held several local gathering in both Jakarta and Surabaya previously. If you are living in either of that cities, then you could expect to attend our future gathering. Follow our Twitter (or Facebook) to keep updated about those kind of events. ^^

I was wondering if you could tell me what you used to make your website because its so good I wanna make up my own ^^
This site/blog is using WordPress, one of the most popular web-based content management system. You may try Googling for “WordPress” to get into their official site and learn more there. ^^
You might want to join our Indonesia group on Facebook: http://facebook.com/groups/nendonesia.id
XD I like Nendo… I’m Indonesian staying in Singapore! Btw normally where can you find shops that sells Nendo in Indo?
Hi there! ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
We usually purchase them through online retailers. Nendoroid are also available in Multi Toys as the official partner of Good Smile Conpany in Indonesia. ^^
Hi there! I love your website and appreciate your passion for Nendoroid and (my personal favorite) Nendoroid Petit. I’m running a website called Anime Reviews and was wondering if you’d like to swap links with me (as in putting me on your blogroll and vice versa). Please contact me if you do.
Hi there! Glad that you like the website.
Sure, I’d love to have a link exchange – will be contacting you via email. ^^
Hey there! I never realized that you were the same Animaster that I follow on Instagram. I actually check this site often to get my Nendoroid fix news haha. I saw that you did a link swap above, and I was wondering if you’d like to do the same for my YouTube channel “FullCircleReviews” (sorry if it seems like an awkward proposal coming after the above comment), as I started making features on figures more recently, and will be making more as time goes along.
The URL if you’re interested is http://youtube.com/fullcirclereviews
Regardless, I’ll put your blog on my roll, and by all means, you don’t have to feel obligated to return the favor.
Keep up the awesome work on this site!
Well, yes, I use the nickname “animaster” on IG as well as in the blog, so nice to meet you again here! XD
Thank you for featuring Nendonesia on your YouTube channel – it is a cool channel BTW. XD
If you have a 168×40 banner, send it to nendonesia[at]gmail[dot]com and I would gladly put your banner here. ^^
Thanks for the support, Kenneth-san! ^^
I have a question~ when I clicked the forum link you gave above (https://nendonesia.com/forum), it redirected me to a “Page Not Found” :.<
I'm new in Nendoroid world and I'd like to socialize with the other nendonesians!
Thanks and good luck X3
The forum is currently undergoing a heavy maintenance, as we are planning to migrate it to another forum hosting service. The forum can still be accessible via the temporary URL that I have written in this post.
You might want to visit our Facebook (http://facebook.com/nendonesia) or our Facebook Group for Indonesian (http://facebook.com/groups/nendonesia.id) in order to socialize with the other Nendonesian. ^^
Lol, I see.
I hope the forum will be fine to use again soon~
^^ keep up your good work!
Just wanted to say your site is solely responsible for the depletion of my bank account funds and the small army of Nendoroid’s I’m building up in my living room.
Keep up the amazing work!
Sorry to hear about your fund depletion, but I’m pretty sure you are glad to spend the fund to build the cute army. XD
Thank you for the support. ^^
Just found out your site recently ^^ I love your site’s dedication towards nendoroids!!!
Would you like to be our partner? I would be glad if you do as I’m also a figurine enthusiast.
Let’s expand our love for anime figurines together!
Hi figure culture,
We would gladly be your partner as fellow figurine enthusiast. “The more the merrier”, they said. XD
Thank you. I’m very glad indeed. ^^ Let’s do a banner exchange (^o^) so can you send me your banner? I’ll make some changes on my site and I’ll post your banner on the side of my hompage as our partner.
Here’s our banner http://figureculture.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/figure-culture-banner-ud.jpg
Thank you pal XD
Hi! I’ve added you to my blogroll with a banner and since I can’t find any fitting banner to use on your site, I’ve customized one myself for you using your header. I hope you don’t mind me doing so, or otherwise, you can always send me the banner you want me to use in the dimension of 174 x 60. I look forward to more updates from your blog!
Hi there! Thank you for adding Nendonesia into your blogroll. I don’t mind the banner getting customized out of the header. ^^
If you want to, you can send me a banner of your blog (168 x 40) to nendonesia[at]gmail.com and I will add your blog into our blogroll as well. XD
