Usually, someone saying you have a "retro face" would not be a polite or pleasant comment, but in the case of everyone's favourite rosy sphere, it's a very good thing.

GoodSmile, the company who have made more Kirby Nendoroids than you've had hot meals, have just announced yet another — this time, to celebrate Kirby's 30th anniversary. And, in keeping with the 30th theme, one of the interchangeable faces is the OG Kirby face from Kirby's Dream Land, the first game in the series.

There are some rather attractive new props and other faces, too:

No info on release yet, but we'll keep an eye out!
