Joining a whole host of other mini figure related goodness, Nama Niku has revealed that he’ll be debuting an all-new “Chibi” version of his popular Top Rope keshi at Designer Con ’15 next week! Featuring the same ingenious wrestling ring head design as the original 2″ figure, everything has been shrunken down to a super-cute 1″ scale, coming complete with those all-important rubber ropes plus the addition of a sweet detachable micro championship belt! Produced by none other than Eric Nilla in a M.U.S.C.L.E pink colored rubber, the little guy will be up for grabs at DCon booth #1104 starting next Saturday, November 21st… Look out for news of more exclusives from both Nama Niku and Eric Nilla over the next few days!

One of the few artists that really helped push the custom kinkeshi scene to the forefront in 2013, Nama Niku has just revealed finished concepts for a fully fledged Kinnikuman-inspired sofubi! Originally created as an entry for October Toys’ upcoming OMFG Series 5, the design has been styled on Nama’s popular Top Rope mini figure, coming with the same branded wrestling ring torso, albeit with 4 muscle bound arms instead of 2! Currently taking form as a one-off custom under the title of “IV Corners Battle Royal”, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that the piece proves popular enough for Nama to take the plunge and get it sculpted as an all-new figure soon. Interested parties can keep track of any further developments by giving the artist’s dedicated IG feed a follow right here
