As you might know I am quite obsessed with Taiga Aisaka from Toradora!, but I am rather picky with the figures etc, so I don’t just buy every single one available out there ^^;

When Taiga regular sized Nendoroid was announced, I was very excited at first, but after I saw her final face, I must say I was rather disappointed as I felt that she wasn’t screaming Taiga at me :P

I prefer the Puchi Taiga Nendoroid’s faces a lot more and was sad that the regular Taiga Nendoroid is not close to them ^^;

For some reason I preordered her anyways as I did not want to regret not doing it and having the price inflate in the aftermarket ^^;

I decided to swap a face which I have of Haruhi Nendoroid, but while I tried to do it when I took Taiga out of the box, I realised that the old Nendoroid head is a lot bigger than the small one (doh!) So I whipped out a penknife and started shaving the plastic at the back :P

It was not a perfectly done job unfortunately but I finally managed to get it to fit somehow without falling apart ^^; The mini Tiger cat included was cute tho, and a good size for my custom Mini Dollfie Dream Taiga ^^!

Maybe who knows, I bought the Nendoroid just for this little cat :P

While Haruhi’s face is not exactly perfect fit I felt that it’s a little closer to what I want it to look. I am unable to close the gaps on the sides unfortunately :P (no pictures of that, sorry!)

I might try to modify the original nendoroid Taiga’s face a bit when I have time perhaps ^^;


Of course I have to pose the mini Tiger with my Taiga Mini Dollfie Dream ^^;

Taiga’s Jacket was purchased 2nd hand from our last BJD doll meat :P

The even smaller tiger cat was from a different figure which was acquired many moons back ^^

Thanks for looking :D

    It looks like it worked out pretty well!

    What will you use the other Nendo face for?
    I wish they sold spare Nendo bodies so that we didn’t all have all these strange little faces floating around!!!

      Oh yes it would be awesome if they do sell spare Nendoroid bodies ^^ I think There’s this obitsu bodies which can be customised to fit Nendoroids tho ^^ I don’t like the other nendoroid faces as much so… they’re currently just sitting collectively in a box with padding lol!

  2. Yeesh a lot of shaving there! Haruh’s gonna send a celestial your way now XD

    Not sure if I like the big smile on Taiga/Haruhi hybrid there ^^; But it’s a Nendo, so you can do many other combinations too ^^

    • chun says:

      yeah gosh didn’t realise I have to shave THAT much O-o; you know after Haruhi season 2, I didn’t like how she was bullying Mikuru some point in time, I became less of a fan :P
      Taiga sometimes have happy/excited/mischievous face too ^^ That was why I decided to use it :3

    Oh wow, for all the figure collecting that I do I have yet to get into figure modification. Quite interesting too that nendo heads have gotten smaller or perhaps it’s a special for Taiga since she is a small girl?
