Sichuan Gundam (Chinese: 四川高达) is a nickname given to the robot statue Tian-xiang-er-hao (Chinese: 天郷2号) that was erected at an amusement park in Sichuan, China in December 2010. Due to its resemblance to characters in the popular sci-fi robot anime Gundam and Bandai’s 2009 exhibit of 18-meter tall Gundam replica, incensed Japanese citizens and Otaku communities responded to the news with parody videos and “improved” renderings of the Chinese robot that the park management claimed to be an original design… Now the wait is over and this urban legend has become a soft vinyl toy, produced by new comer toy company “DAIBANDONG”.

MAN-E-NEWS// The Fake Baron keshi from Bigmantoys x Awesome Toy…

unnamed-69

Hot on the heals of our Puppet Muscles coverage yesterday, we bring you the second release Bigmantoys will have up for grabs later this week… the Fake Baron keshi! Produced in conjunction with Awesome Toy’s ongoing “Artist Series”, the M.U.S.C.L.E-esque piece has been digitally sculpted by BMT’s Lee Burbridge based on the pachi Red Baron design, coming authentically scaled at around 2″ tall. Originally debut at Superfestival 69 last month in a red keshi-like PU rubber, the little guy will be making a return in his original red colorway alongside a version in the standard keshi gomu flesh tone. Up for grabs at just $15 each, expect to see the Fake Baron keshi alongside the Puppet Muscles in the BMT store this coming Friday, October 30th at Midnight London time…

MAN-E-NEWS// Bigmantoys’ “Blade” Puppet Master-inspired keshi revealed…

Screen Shot 2015-08-18 at 15.14.09

Hot on the heals of the recently featured “Tunneler“, Lee Burbridge over at Bigmantoys has just unveiled yet another mini figure sculpt based on “The Puppet Master”, this time taking on arguably the most recognisable character from the cult horror series… the Blade! Digitally sculpted by Lee in Z-Brush, the weapon-handed “spy” doll once again features a similar aesthetic to the classic Kinnikuman/M.U.S.C.L.E line – albeit with Charles Band‘s distinct air of horror – presumably coming in-scale with both the iconic minis and previously revealed “Tunneler” at around 2″ tall. Similarly, whilst licensing for Blade is still to be confirmed, official or not, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for a release in a keshi-style rubber on the Bigmantoys store soon…
