Excellent Pentagon Jr. Cero Meido drawing, available as a sticker or t-shirt on RedBubble.
For me, this was a complete mark out moment.
MAX Factory claims these Tetsuya Naito plastic model kits are based on “a detailed 3D scan with over 100 cameras” of the professional wrestler. Those scans were then converted to a mold and sculpted.
Um, ok. I’m not sure why, then, they’d use that for a couple 1/20 scale plastic model kits where obviously a lot of detail is apparently lost based on the scale. Or perhaps the “3D scans” in question are relatively low quality.
It is interesting to compare, for example, the details in Naito’s boots compared to the lack of detail in Naito’s torso and upper body.
Nice parody of professional wrestling promotions and events.
One of the reasons I blog about toys a lot is that although I have a large collection, there are way too many cool toys than I could ever afford to buy much less have the space to store and display. Once in a while, though, I make an exception and as soon as I saw them I snapped up all seven of these Funko Pop! vinyl figures which reimagine Marvel characters as masked Lucha Libre wrestlers.
I just hope these are popular enough for Funko to continue the line and maybe give fans a wrestling ring for these.Continue reading “Funko Pop! Marvel Luchadores”
