MEDICOM Fighting Series Sofubi/ソフビ・ファイティングシリーズ

 

I first discovered these last year during a trip to Hong Kong; Medicoms Fighting Series vinyl figures (Sofubi) are sculpted by Noiguramu. Being a former Pro Wrestler of course these brought me great joy and were an impulse purchase during that said Hong Kong trip.

 

However I have still to find a comprehensive checklist of the line. Since am headed over to Hong Kong again this year, I thought I would showcase these individually.

 

Each figure stands approximately 9.8” tall, is cast in soft Japanese vinyl with 3 points of articulation (head, arms & legs).

 

In person the prices for these individually are reasonable (between 50-70 EUR) however online I have seen some of these go for $125 each! Depending on the Sofubi or Pro Wrestler etc

 

They reminded me of the Marusan or Tiger Mask line of Pro Wrestling themed Sofubi from the 1960's/1970's.

I really dig the old school/classic inspired detail on these and even the extra vinyl kickpads/boots that some have (removable).

Bruiser Brody

 

You can't go wrong with Bruiser Brody! Medicom released two Sofubi versions of Bruiser Brody (one with short and long hair); the detail on this one is awesome (he has the blade/cut marks on his forehead!):

First/Super Tiger Mask

 

The first incarnation of Tiger Mask, I am pretty sure you can remove his mask but I am afraid to do it! The mask is great!

One of my favorite details on this Sofubi are the Japanese Kickpads!
