Is the "Childhood" Warsman in scale to the adult-sized figures, in other words, small?

It's small; I actually would not have mind if it was the same size as the other standard sofubi. In relation to the size and the price it's expensive haha

Five Star Toys/CONVICT "Childhood" Warsman Nikolai Unmasked (Blue)

 

This version of the Sofubi is the most economical (the color/painted version is more expensive); really cool looking piece.

Five Star Toys Yudetamago-chan (White)

 

How can you not have a Sofubi of Yudetemago! Looks more like Takashi Shimada; mine came with a button (I have it pinned to my Kinnikuman backpack!)

Medicom/Five Star Toys NSC Reborn Terryman

 

The solid Flesh NSC Reborn line of Sofubi is extremely affordable and they are huge/tall but with thinner proportions. The only problem I have with this Sofubi is getting it to stand! Terryman has heels on his boots/sole of the feet and he wobbles (hence the doll stander).

CCP Kinnikuman (Red)

 

This was an impulse purchase, I saw it in a sales bin box at the Mandarake Shibuya branch. Not a big fan of the realistic "jacked up" versions/releases of the Kinnikuman characters but...I have been tempted to get the current Kagami Attitude release of Kinnikuman with the classic Ultraman pose from his first appearance. This line is very affordable and displays well with all the CCP figures & S.H. Figurarts figures.

Not my complete Sofubi collection (I can't fit all of them in one case); for now this will do...

I'm surprised to learn that the skinnier, more doll-like Sofubi were made by Five Star. They look different enough from Five Star's chunkier figures that I thought they were made by a different company. Are the skinnier figures older?

 

What's that Terryman on the front right? A statue?

The Medicom/Five Star Reborn Sofubi are a couple of years old (two or three at the most); they release painted versions of those type of Sofubi as well (as recently as last year).

Wow, Mike is amazing. I like how he made the figure look quite a bit like the Romando toy.

 

And I'm so confused by the Sofubi and when they came out. Some just look more primitive to me, but I guess "retro" would be a better description.

 

*Sigh* And I did buy Atlantis a couple of friends/opponents.

Those ccp figures look great, but I can’t get into them because they’re static statues, which is weird because Keshi are basically are too, but I guess it’s the size.

That being said Kinnikuman Zebra has always been a favorite. I’m waiting for fivestar to produce him eventually, and I want to see a tiger version done as well as a battlecat version. ;)

Do you know of any online store where you can pre-order upcoming Five Star Kinnikuman figures (before the price jumps up)?

 

Battlecat Kinnikuman Zebra would be awesome!

Not sure about a specific online store because I usually get mine from either Mandarake or yahoojapan (I have bought the Sofubi directly from Five Star etc)

I didn't know you could buy directly from Five Star, cool. Can you share their site?

 

Is there a way to buy from yahoojapan without using a third party site like Jauce?

I am not sure on buying directly from Five Star...

 

I know Convict has this website/store: http://www.convict.j...grp&gid=1185231

 

Medicom: http://medicomtoy.co.jp/

 

No other way of buying from yahoojapan without a 3rd party proxy service (unless you know someone from Japan and can buy you stuff)

So after saying I would only buy one or two Sofubi, I found some good deals on figures I like and now own two with two more on the way. Just got this Robin Mask.

Kinnikuman Nemesis
The fully painted version of this figure is beautiful but rare and WAY out of my price range. But this plain blue version was affordable and still shows off the dynamic sculpt.

Big spending on those two sofubi! They look awesome, especially Nemesis as a newer character he is not oversaturated yet in terms of releases.
