This one really doesn’t have a story behind it… I saw, I bought, I conqueuered (yay for Mandarake). I’ve been trying to collect every single Neco-Arc figure and this is the second last item before completion (the last illusive item would be the Neco-Arc Chaos counterpart). This figma/action figure is part of Good Smile Company’s rare line of Nendoroid Plus. In this case, it is a huge Neco-Arc made out of wood and with limited mobility. I’m not familiar with the background of when/how this was released, but I do know that it’s quite rare and limited ;3
And so, here’s a pictoral review of this oversized Nendoroid. With the help of a smaller Neco-Arc! Enjoy!

Since all joints were centred and the head had a fixed backwards tilt, the figure had zero centre of balance… the only way to keep it free-standing would be to rotate the tail downwards and use it to prevent the figure from falling backwards.
