Up and coming keshi producer Kuidaore Toy are proud to announce the release of their debut mini figure, the awesome Mr Rucksack! Heavily inspired by Kinnikuman’s obscure knock-off figures, the pachi-style keshi has been hand sculpted by Kuidaore at an authetically scaled 2″ tall, coming factory produced in a flesh-tone, keshi-style rubber. Packed with a companion sticker and pixel art header, the little guy is currently up for grabs at just 1000yen ($8) plus shipping. Interested parties can hit Kuidaore up directly through their site here for details on how to purchase…

After a brief hiatus from the scene, custom keshi wonder duo Nama Niku and Eric Nilla are back with quite possibly their greatest mini figure yet, the incredible Pachi Man! A loving tribute to knock off gumball machine toys, the little guy has been kit-bashed by Nama from a variety of vintage keshi figures, coming complete with a fully removable gacha capsule head with micro Claw nestled inside, a custom penny wrestling belt and a miniaturised quarter mounted on the back! Recently posted on IG with the tagline “Coming soon!”, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that Pachi Man makes an appearance in the Nilla store at some point over the coming weeks…


MAN-E-REPORT// Mandarake Microkan store visit…

Whilst Cosmo Knight Alpha may be on the bucket list of any self respecting kaiju collector, to keshi nuts it has to be the Mandarake Microkan, so what better way to round off our Japan recap than with a little look at the legendary store… One part of the numerous Mandarake spaces found in Nakano Broadway, the modest size shop boasts one of the most incredible “for sale” collections in the world, with numerous SR kinkeshi, some of the most hilarious (and creative!) pachi keshi we’ve laid eyes on, numerous rare lines (including the pictured Ma-Ba gacha set we snagged below), plus a ton of super cheap grab bags and 100yen bins- as you can see from the main pic, our writer Tru:Tek was left in awe for quite some time! As if visiting the store wasn’t enough, through the aid of Jon at Rampage Toys we also got to meet the Microkan keshi master himself, Miyakoshi-san. Director of the store and editor of the famous Mandarake Keshi magazine, コンプREX, it was amazing to be able to hand over our latest figure “Atomic Uchuujin” in person, and even more of an honour to receive a copy of his latest publication too! All round a pretty unbelievable trip that anyone with even the smallest interest in keshi has got to make at one point in their lives…
