- Difficulty level 2
- About 30 min to finish
- Comes with 110 pieces
- Brick sizes start at 4x4x5 mm

The Charmander set was released in May 2021, so it is still new but not difficult to find in stores. I actually ordered my Charmander set off Amazon a few months ago.

I have already built the Charmander model, so I thought it would be fun to put together a review of this set. After all, you may want to know if it is a good choice for your Nanoblock collection.
As you read my review, you can find…
- Details on the Charmander Nanoblock set.
- Information on the popular character and Pokémon in general.
- Thoughts from other Pokémon and Nanoblock collectors.
In addition to my own experience, I have checked out Amazon, YouTube and Pokémon-themed blogs and websites to put together a well-thought-out review.
When I put together a review, I like to include some information on the topic at hand. You may be shopping for your first Pokémon set, so it helps to learn a bit about the character and franchise in general.
Charmander is a fire Pokémon that is categorized as a lizard. This Pokémon can evolve into the Charmelon and Charizard over time. It also has an always-burning tail that changes with its mood.

When Charmander is content, its tail can be seen waving gently. However, its tail burns intensely when it is angry and ready for battle. In the rain, steam can be seen spouting from the tip of its tail.
Finally, Charmander’s weakness is water, rocks and the ground.

The rising popularity of Pokémon has led to additional electronic games, trading card games, toys and a cartoon series.
Charmander Nanoblock Set
The Charmander Nanoblock allows you to build a 3D model of this popular fire Pokémon. I love the accurate details of the finished product, from the blue eyes to the flaming design on the tip of its tail.
I wanted to share a quote about the accurate details from one of my favorite Pokémon blogs, which is Concerto101. To quote this blogger,
“Generally, each model has good detail that makes them distinguishable. Charmander’s tail has some translucent pieces to emulate a glowing flame.”
Once I finished building Charmander, I was happy to display it on the baseplate that was included in the set.

Of course, I know the instructions for any collectible can become difficult to follow.
Another one of my favorite Pokémon blogs shared a tip to help you get back on track. To quote Heart in Flight Crochet,
“If you get stuck then look at the picture in the next step, they show assembled blocks as a lighter color, the relative positions should help you figure it out and work backwards.”
In addition, you can easily find the instructions for the Charmander set online.
