Kotetsu figure by Megahouse released!
They made a very nice face sculpt of Ojisan :D
I’m not as excited by Bunny but he does have his trademark tsuntsun face and an extra head without his glasses.

Title: Barnaby Brooks Jr. – 12 Perfect Model
These are pose-able action figures with clothing made of fabric material by Medicom Toy. Real Action Heroes are 1/6 scale and about 30 cm tall. But the prices are usually 3 times higher than most action figures/PVC statues. Usually the head/face sculpts are quite true to the original designs. And they can be lots of fun (if you can save up enough $$$ for them..) We can strip them and put them in moe-yukata like this way and that (^///^)
I would love to have these 2! (*o*)
Woohoo~ I think they can be stripped! XD But I’m not too keen on amputating Bunny’s legs due to the boots (which seems to be similar to my Chun Li RAH). I hope he does have a pair of proper feet and not just a pair of boots orz;; Kotetsu’s feet looks safe though.
Title: Wild Tiger – 12 Perfect Model
Price: 25,000 Yen (that’s crazy orz;;)
Available: December 2012
Title: Barnaby Brooks Jr. – 12 Perfect Model
There’s also their heroes suits version and they have led lights that glow :D But 25,000 Yen for each… It’s a big -NO- for me. Wishlisted but I’m sure fans will snap them up. I’ll be content with their Figuarts, albeit the much smaller size.
2012 May Restock!

Summary (from wiki):
The series takes place in a fictional, re-imagined version of New York City called Sternbild City, where 45 years before, individuals with superpowers called “NEXT” started appearing and some of them became superheroes. Each of a city’s most famous superheroes work for a sponsor company and their uniforms also contain advertising for real-life companies. Their heroic activity is broadcast on the popular television show “Hero TV”, where they accumulate points by each feat accomplished and the best ranked hero of the season is crowned “King of Heroes”.
The story mainly focuses on veteran hero Kotetsu T. Kaburagi aka Wild Tiger who is assigned with a new partner, a young man named Barnaby Brooks Jr. However, Barnaby and Kotetsu usually have trouble working together as they have conflicting opinions on how a superhero should act.
Hirata Hiroaki as Kaburagi T. Kotetsu 鏑木・T・虎徹 (Wild Tiger)
Morita Masakazu as Barnaby Brooks Jr. バーナビー・ブルックスJr
Kotobuki Minako as Karina Lyle (Blue Rose)
Inoue Go as Keith Goodman (Sky High)
Tsuda Kenjiro as Nathan Seymour (Fire Emblem)
Ise Mariya as Pao-Lin Huang (Dragon Kid)
Kusunoki Taiten as Antonio Lopez (Rock Bison)
Okamoto Nobuhiko as Ivan Karelin (Origami Cyclone)
Yusa Kouji as Yuri Petrov (Lunatic)
This is one of my favourite animes from the last season. Besides fast-paced, action-packed animation characteristic of Sunrise’s works, the plot is engaging and entertaining. There are colourful personalities with interesting backstories and refreshing villians and side characters. And having Yusa Kouji voicing one of the good/bad guys is an icing on the cake for me.
The Kotetsu x Barnaby (reversible) pairing is also very popular among the fujoshi and BL mangaka. Thanks to the BL fan-service in the anime lol.
That’s Bunny (in suit) giving Tiger (in old suit) the ohime-sama dakou
(lit. Carrying the Princess in his arms)
Figuarts are planning to release the whole series of characters from the anime. Fortunately I’m not aiming to collect all of them ^^;; maybe only the ones of Kotetsu and Barnaby if they look good.
The first two mecha suit releases of Tiger and Bunny (right) were snapped up in a flash.I would like to get those two on the left, so I’ll be watching their release closely. Update: For those who missed out preordering Tiger’s mecha, they’re now bundling him with the character setting guide.
Release dates for some of the other figures are not announced yet. I’m quite sure we can buy most of them from usual online hobby stores but they’ll probably sell out fast.
And not to forget, these cute goods of the characters in chibi form <3 Rubber keyholders.
And trading figures… I haven’t bought any of them tho… lack of $$$. ^^;;;
And of course the evil Animate Japan exclusive Blu-Ray DVD tokuten Deformation chibis. Preorders are already sold out.
Update: 19 February 2012! More exclusive made-to-order items from the maker’s online store :)
