Want to get a hold of CCP items?  If you are comfortable ordering in Japanese, I highly recommend Tenso forwarding service.  If Japanese is not your thing, then Japonica shopping service is not a bad way to go (if you are willing to bust out a little more dough).

Nama Niku Customs

I've been working on a few custom figures over the Holidays, and wanted to share pics of the goods. My goal was to create my favorite 100 t variations that were never made into Kinkeshi.

King the 100 ton vs Terryman comic ver.
100 ton wrecking ball ver.

Buffaloman vs Burning Inner Strength

Five Star Toy Nostalgic Sofvi Collection
Buffaloman EX Burning Inner Strength Absorption Ver.

Image Compliments of TOYFUL 

The Goods:
  • TOYFUL Exclusive
  • Price: 7,800円
  • Made in Japan!
  • Pre-order: Up 12/29 @ TOYFUL
The figure is based on a scene from the Seven Devil Choujin arc where Kinnikuman squares off against Buffaloman.  Buffaloman basically rams Kinnikuman's chest, and absorbs all his Burning Inner Strength, causing that mark to appear on his back.

Thanks to Kinnikuman Sofvi Kenkyuusho for the heads up!

Irate the 80's: Ep 8 - MUSCLE MEN KINNIKUMAN

The Irate Gamer takes on Kinnikuman...

While I appreciate this guy giving the franchise a nod, the information in the episode left a lot to be desired.  Many of the "facts" were loose and sloppy, and his pronunciation of "Kinnikuman" was horrendous.  It was so bad deaf Akuma Choujin everywhere cried out in horror and pain with each slaughtered syllable...

Not a huge fan, but it was worth the watch. 

More Irate the 80's HERE

Endo-san of CCP appeared on the Japanese podcast Studio Koenji on 12/7 to chat about the company and some of their new Kinnikuman figures!

Lawson x Scalp D x Kinnikuman Collaboration

Just when I thought I had seen every type of Kinnikuman collaboration imaginable, this thing comes along... 

Image Compliments Yudetamago

Lawson is a Japanese convenience store and Scalp D is Japanese Men's shampoo designed to help you have a thick, full head of hair.  Buy the exclusive Kinnikuman x Scalp D shampoo set at Lawson and get that RAD artwork and a chance to win an original poster. 

Terryman and Terry the Kid both look hilarious.  What a wonderfully wacky Japanese thing.  An absolute riot!
