So happy to have a piece of one of my favorite gaming experiences finally with me, Oneshot is such a lovey little game. The Niko plush itself is extremely faithful to the original art and I couldn't be happier. Bit of a shame that the magnets are weaker than I was hoping, from what I've tried he doesn't seem to hold the sun as intended. Don't know if this is a problem for every single plush, but from other reviews it seems to be a majority, something to keep in mind.
Asides from that one gripe though it's a really high quality plush and on that note it's a highly recommended purchase for any fan of the game.
I pre-ordered the plush when it was first available and I loved it!
The material is very comfortable and high quality.
The colors are pretty well done, matches what you would image and the yellows on the eyes and the sun are well made.
Some of the clothing isn't fixed to the plush like the scarf and the sleeves so you got some options.
The plush is pretty big, when it first came in I thought it would be smaller but I was surprised by how big it was. It's weight and balance lets it sit without falling over. The size also matches the headcanon which is that the lightbulb in-game is the size of a real lightbulb and Niko is sized parallel to that.
However, there are some problems with the plush.
There are metal rods inside the whiskers and the hat which makes it hard to hug but this lets you adjust them so they stay how you want them to say.
The magnets are very very weak. This can be fixed by attaching neodymium magnets.
+ High-quality material and surprisingly big and heavy. Niko's a chonky pal!
+ Colours are very well done and the plush is just nice to stare at and/or take pics of.
+ Yellow on the sun and the eyes is very well done!
+ ...so you can see its bright colour even in some darkness. I took a photo of it.
+ Scarf can be removed, and the sleeves can be rolled up
+ The hat's brim is made of a metal wire, so it is bendable, as written
+ The plush can sit upright by itself; if you're having trouble fiddle around with the "bean fillings" inside
+ Niko's """whiskers""" have metal wires in them, so you can adjust them somewhat.
- The magnets are super small, so Niko can only hold onto the sun when it is clasped between the legs
Extremely satisfied, absolutely glad to have this bright lovely child.
I love this baby baby bab, but a bunch of small complaints made me dock a star from my review. The magnets in Niko's paw hands as well as in the sun lightbulb are a bit too weak to keep held in both hands. As well as this, the brim on Niko's hat is held out by wire that came to me a bit mangled. aside from that, there were one or two loose threads, but nothing too bad at all in that regard. These problems wouldn't have been worth removing a star if it weren't for the $30-$40 price tag (shipping included). All in all, buy this baby boy Niko.
See? I have the sun!
This official OneShot plush was designed by Nightmargin and prototyped by Jenna Post. It measures about 10 inches tall with a wide, bendable brim, and includes a plush sun, which attaches to Niko's hands with magnets.
