This Chibi Belle Will Turn Any Beast Into an Adoring Prince With Just One Look
Certain as the sun, this Belle figure from Good Smile will turn any dusty shelf into a charming display full of Disney magic.
As part of a new partnership between Disney, Pixar and Good Smile, the Nendoroid line will be diving deep into the animated classics to bring out new chibi-style figures to adorn your collections. The line was announced at WonderFest this past winter, but only now are we finally getting to see the actual figures rather than just concept art.
Everything kicks off with Belle from the iconic Beauty and the Beast. Given the live-action remake's success this spring, it only makes sense that the little French princess would be the one to launch this new initiative.
Captured in her beautiful yellow and golden gown, Belle looks as if she's ready to burst into song at any moment. She even includes an alternate dress portion to make it look like she's sashaying her way across the ballroom floor. The included Mrs. Potts and Chip are also there to accompany Belle with a bit of song when the mood strikes.
Though Beast won't be part of the figure line, he too will be be included with Belle in both the mirror "reflection" and as an acetate accessory featuring the handsome hulk in his finest dress clothes.
Belle won't be the only Disney character to find her way into the Nendoroid line however, as characters like Ariel, Tinkerbell, Buzz, Woody and Rapunzel (of whom I will buy at least a half-dozen) will also get some terrific chibi-inspired figures within the next year. There aren't any release dates on those just yet, but with Tangled: The Series having just launched, there's hope our golden-haired heroine will be next in line. If she doesn't come with a Pascal though, I will riot in the streets.
The Good Smile Disney's Belle Nendoroid is available for pre-order now for ~$45. You can enjoy more images of the upcoming figure below.
