Japan-based sofubi producer Brian Bunting has revealed that he’ll have a limited supply of Galaxy People Lucky Bags up for grabs next week!

Originally debuting back in October last year with the release of Ultra Earth and Devil Bado, the resurrection of Nakajima’s classic Astro-Mu 5 line continues this month with the arrival of yet another goodie/baddie combo… Gold Bina and Masuman! Near-identical to the original 10″ tall soft vinyl figures, the pair have been produced by Medicom in a classic trans yellow/turquoise vinyl complete with authentic, vintage-style sprays and hand brushed detailing overseen by The Galaxy People. Packed with all the design features you’d expect from a fully-fledged Astro-Mu 5 remake, personal highlights for us include glitter pipe cleaner filled limbs, removable gloves and boots, back/chest button controlled “yes/no” head articulation, plus mountable pulleys for string aided flight. Touching down in the Medicom Toy store via open preorder starting Wednesday, February 24th, Gold Bina and Masuman will set you back just 15,984yen ($133) each plus shipping…
