BTW was online and saw this pic of a modified SHFiguarts Kinnikuman Soldier...

 

How hard is it to make this modification? I noticed that it looks like a Kinnikuman torso section is that accurate?

Looks like Spice seed will be the first to have a figure of Silver Man

 

Really want to see how the S H Figuarts version will stack up next to it.

How big are the revoltech figures? How do they compare to Figuarts?

The old Kinnikuman, #128, not sure but probably a bit smaller than the Figuarts. Everything else is part of the Revoltech Micro line and are around 4" tall.

Here is my collection of Kinnikuman Super Poseable figures: From Top Left to Right---Ultimate Muscle Version, SH Figuarts Version, Revoltech Yamaguchi, Mini Revoltech Yamaguchi. Bottom Left and Right---Takara Microman and Romando Glorious Muscles.

 

I hope this helps to piggy back Baltan's post

Those sizes are more different than I would have expected.  Do you have a personal preference when it comes to either size or posability?  I've only been buying the Figuarts figures, but the Revoltech figures seem to be of similar quality.

I would say that out of personal preference with the current figures, I do prefer the SH Figuarts Kinnikuman line. I have bought all of them except the repaints. (I kind of see them as redundant figures unless it's unique like the shirtless Brocken Jr. or the Scramble Outfit Suguru) My only gripe with the Figuarts is that they are missing a bicep swivel joint. This of course has been rectified through a swivel elbow joint, but looks kind of weird. Still I like them overall.

 

I particularly liked the Microman version for a long time because of it's compact size and articulation count on such a small figure. However, proportionally it wasn't the best looking overall.

 

Most of my current collection has super articulation. I don't really subscribe to having statues for figures. The sculpting is usually pretty awesome on statuesque figures but I like to play with and pose my toys when I get bored. That's me. I am currently working towards making my own toy line with super articulated figures and would love to tackle the Kinnikuman license. We'll see someday if that comes true.

Oh nice!! Finally some news!! I'm guessing that meat figure is an extra included in the Buffalo re-paint??

 

With Super Phoenix out next month and now news I was getting worried. I guess this will be our September release?!

Nope, check the info box: July! Yeah, far as I’ve seen Meat is Buffaloman’s accessory.

Nope, too soon. More likely Thursday or Monday for Japanese preorders, Western ones will take longer.

Yup! You beat me to linking to it. I’m not rushing to preorder yet but I do need Meat, OBVIOUSLY, so a later purchase is likely.

According to one of the sellers on ebay for Super Phoenix, the scheduled date of release for him is March 24th in Japan which means that you can order him from one of the sellers and get it shortly after that! Awesome!

Can anyone tell me which arc the Meat with MEAT on his outfit is from?

 

I know i've seen it before in some medium, but having rewatched the anime recently, I can't seem to find it!!

Meat may wear it at other times throughout the series in various mediums, I'm not sure, but the instance that I do know of is from the Seven Akuma Choujin Arc.

 

6eVtwqf.jpg

 

Interestingly, it says "MEAE" when he's blasted apart, and then "MEAT" once Black Hole grabs the torso. Not sure if that was Yudetamago making a joke or an error.

It appears that the Anime team, either to avoid such issues and/or to ease the animation process, opted for the panda shirt instead.

Also, notice how the above "MEAT" is done in white letters.

 

eT2eqM9.png

qCJGPIz.png

 

By the time in the series that he's revived, the letters are now drawn as filled in with a thin boarder around the word. This design matches the SH Figuarts exactly.

 

hQTCNVs.jpghJAbwBb.png

 

My guess is that the swivel joints on Meat will allow the figure to pull apart into 7 pieces. Bandai not advertising that feature either means that the figure doesn't pull apart, or Bandai is strategically holding off until they can do something like a promo with that teased Black Hole figure from way back. We do know he has swivel arms and hips, and he appears to be coming apart at the arm in the above-right pic.

 

BTsYB1B.jpg

 

 

Now the true mystery. I looked into seeing how consistent the way "MEAT" was drawn onto his shirt, and I found something interesting.

 

R319Xri.jpg

 

"MEAT" is solid when Meat is in one piece, then white once he's broken apart, and becomes solid again once the arm is attached. You can see how his shirt differs from one page to the next in these two instances of being separated and brought together. Does Meat's shirt indicate his life force?

Or is it just an inconsistency, like Terryman's TEXAS shirt?

Thanks toyhandle for the extensive answer!! Much appreciated!!

 

I must remember seeing it in the manga, but no wonder I didn't come across it in the anime!!

 

Regardless, I am really looking forward to this release. I received my Super Phoenix today and spent an hour setting him up to perform the muscle inferno!! Ran out of time to take photo's! will post some in the morning!!

Nice poses! I especially like Akuma Shogun vs. The Man. What made you go for the Muscle Inferno? I love that move. It cracks me up, being somewhat out of place in terms of wrestling moves, even for Kinnikuman. Really hoping we get Zebra soon.

 

Are you planning on seating anyone in those fold-chairs? Otherwise, I think it'd look better without them and free up space.

 

Also, been a while since I did some recolors.

Buffaloman -10 Million Power - Anime Vers. w/ Meat

 

That 10 Million Power designation is misleading. I wonder if it has something to do with avoiding a name like "Satan Possessed Buffaloman." I'm working on a post about it.
