I've been interested in these Five Star Toys Kinnikuman vinyl figures for a while (like I said before most of us here in the USA know these characters as M.U.S.C.L.E.) Only they come from a Japanese company and as far as I know only sell them in Japan. I'd like to order one some time but I'm not exactly sure as to how... I heard one would have to know someone who can import them or something like that... this one in particular interests me and I was tempted to see if trying to order from their site only I'm not entirely sure their site supports ordering from the USA and it wants to do COD which I am not a fan of.... and I'm not entirely sure their delivery service supports shipping to the US which it may not...

It'd be nice if the kinnikuman blog Nama Niku could help me out with that. But I'm not sure they would... I sent them a tweet asking for a bit of advice.... anyway.. here's the link.

Manson Omega Figure
Omega by Fewture. Designed by Yasushi Nirasawa and sculpted by Yoshihiro Saito with cooperation of Manson himself.
This is one of those figures I had for quite a while now but I'm wanting to do reviews of at least my favorites in my collection. Well this one is a unique one to me and I'm happy I got it while it was still reasonable and available at retail rather than marked up. This is of Manson in his Mechanical Animals "Omega" guise. These figures where originally only available in japan but where later made available worldwide. It says at the article about the figures that Manson chose japanese designers because they are more "daring" than toy companies in the US. I'm not sure I would classify them as more daring than Macfarlane or something since they didn't do anything to censor the designs of some of the movie monsters they did such as Sil from Species... her figure still had the big biomechanical nipples and such and nothing in this line is anywhere near as racy as that.. but I digress...

Recenty the blog Nama Niku... a blog specializing in Kinnikuman (MUSCLE to those in the USA). Usually I look at the expensive Kinnikuman figures that are only available in japan and sell out right away and wish I could get them.

Recently, they had a little giveway contest. The first three to respond get a free MUSCLE style figure they designed. I was one of the three and my prize arrived in the snail mail today!
nama niku kinnikuman
I hardly ever win anything so hooray for prizes!
Quick, can you spot where the prize figure from nama niku is in this photo?

First up the second of two Lady Kinnikuman Figures... this time Lady Robin:
Lady Robin
As with the last Lady Kinnikuman Figure I got this one is a very nice scuplt.. the only problems I had was the spikey things on her shoulders where kind of difficult to put on especially since  I was trying to put them on backwards at first! But once I got them on all was fine... I scuffed her shoulder a bit trying to get them on though but it's in an area that doesn't show once they have been put on so it's not so bad.

I actually kind of like the base on this one better than in the previous figure because it is matte and doesn't dirty as easily. the other one got fingerprints\smudges on it easily with the translucent plastic it was made from.
Revoltech Figure
I got a second Revoltech figure this month.. their Fraulein line seems rather fragile to me and this one was no different. It was hard putting her wings on and other things at the same time but what I liked better about this one than the previous one I got was she came with a stand.

I mentioned this figure before and I actually went ahead and ordered it because it was too good for me to pass up. Continued Inside... )

These are too cool not to post! Dang.. broken pictures... well

They are here. Regardless.. they all look good to me.

Here's an article about the awesome Metal Gear Solid 4 figures.

Makes me wish I was still in the market for those kind of things.
