Pachi Man Chibi Keshi Scale!

The Nama Nilla Wrestling Alliance is very excited to be sharing a booth with Mitari and Gargamel at Super Festival 65 in Tokyo!  We have been sitting on this figure since last year, so I am happy it is finally going to see the light of day.

The concept started when Mitari commissioned Nama Niku to make some Pachi (bootleg) type exclusives for their store in Japan.  The original idea was to do Keshi mash-ups inspired by Gargamel's Gacharoid Capsule Head Robots and the early 80's Gacha Gacha Man Kinkeshi Knockoff. 

A Different Toy Prize in Each One!

Pachi Man was supposed to be the mini sidekick companion piece for a Deka sized Capsule Machine character.  He was going to sit behind the glass chest piece (think Ravage & Soundwave), but we scrapped the Deka kitbash version in favor of a new original sculpt project...

Avengers x Kinnikuman

Yudetamago Avengers Project! 
Marvel x Yudetamago x Shonen Jump
Thor & Captain America Exclusive Artwork
First Appearance: Weekly Shonen Jump 1/4/14 Issue
500 Exclusive Posters with Artwork by Yudetamago

*Image Compliments of Yudetamago

Yudetamago announced today that they were commissioned by Marvel and Jump Comics to do an official piece of artwork to promote the upcoming "Avengers series" movies in Japan.  The Kinnikuman Universe styled Marvel heroes will first appear in an upcoming issue of WSJ.  Posters will then be included as premiums for the first 500 Japanese presale tickets sold for Captain America: The Winter Solider and Thor: The Dark World.  

This is very exciting news for American Comic Book fans who also read Kinnikuman.  It is rather rare to see collaborations like this between publishers, let alone American comic collaborations with Yudetamago.  I am very impressed with Nakai-sensei's rendition of both Thor and Cap.  They look like they are about to jump right into a ring with Kinnikuman and help the rest of the Seigi Choujin take on Akuma Shogun!  I also thought that it was a nice touch where he added famous Kinnikuman battlegrounds from the Kinniku Throne and Dream Tag Arcs. 

Fantastic work all around, and many Congratulations to Yudetamago!

Amazing Custom BE@RBRICK Collection!
*Friday the 29th is a bit of a word play in Japanese that cleverly works out to represent "Kinniku day." The "Kin" in Kinyoubi (Friday), coupled with the "ni" ( 2) and "ku" (9) of the 29th end up forming Kin-ni-ku.
