The figures will be sold exclusively at the Osaka Kinnikuman event, and carry a price tag of only 3,000円!  Each figure is around 40cm/15.7 inches tall.

The CCP x Romando collab is also offering up three different charity T's featuring both CCP and Romando figures clocking in at 1,890円.  All proceeds are going to charity on these, so if you happen to be going to the event, make sure to show your support and pick one up!

If any Nama Niku readers happen to be going to the event, I would love to get a few pics to share on the blog.  大阪のイベントに参加予定の方でイベントの写真を提供して頂ける方がいましたらご連絡ください。

"Space Lone Devil Tag Team" 6090 T-shirt and Original Color CCP Sunshine and Ashuraman Figure Set ~

 I always thought it was the Stray Devil Choujin Combo/Tag Team...

According to the product page, these will only be available for purchase until the 9th of May.  Not a bad price at 8,400円 considering you get both figures and a neato shirt that says "Space Lone Devil" on it...  I guarantee you will be the only kid on the block with one.

Order via Rakuten here.

Up next, is the Muscle Brothers 6090 T-shirt by Rolling Cradle and Original Color Kinnikuman and Kinnikuman Great CCP Figure Set ~

Breaking Niku News!  Kinnikuman Nisei Kyukyoku Choujin Tag is heading to a website near you!

Kinnikuman 対 Shitman

Major props for AJ at Art Junkie for busting out another fantastic Kinnikuman design.  Got my shirts in the mail a few days ago, and am extremely pleased with the way they turned out!

Feels great to know that part of the proceeds from my purchase were donated to recovery efforts in Japan.


 T Shirt Back

 AJ Mask vs Shitman  - Also got a signed Shitman sketch

Besides doing Kinnikuman collaboration work, AJ also has a full line of totally rad, original, pro-wrestling designs.

Shitman has got to be one of the funniest and most appealing characters I have seen in a long time.  Would love to see Shitman make an appearance in an upcoming issue of Nisei...  

Get them both here ~ 肉

Image Compliments of Final Children

I have been following Final Children on Twitter for quite some time now, and have always been a big fan of his Kinnikuman artwork.  While he has done various fan art pieces in the past, this appears to be his first big collaboration with the Kinnikuman franchise.

The design is limited to a run of 100 shirts, and will be sold at the upcoming ZST 28 mixed martial arts charity event on 5/22.  Shimada-sensei will  be on hand to sign these as they are sold, with proceeds going to the recovery efforts in Japan.

Nice work Final Children!
