    Fake Baron :lol: pachi in your face! You can't get pachi-er than this, love it.

    Medicom and Lulubell are taking pre-orders for this fella. According to Lulubell its by Awesome Toy, a HK based company but this toy is made in Japan?!!! I would love a Made in Hong Kong fake toys from the olden days but to have this made in Japan is kinda neat.

    This guy seems to takes reference from the old menko cards with all the pachi heroes. Interesting figure.

    Cool looking sculpt.

    Cant imagine how annoying it is to paint all those rivots.

    Toy is cool though.

    Haha true!

    Would they use masking for things like that? Reckon it'd cost a bomb?!

    Whoa! Uncanny, Chris! It would have been even more freakish. I actually wanted to post it yesterday but didn't have time!!!

    scobot- thanks for the pic. That's exactly the menko that I was talking about.

    I've wanted one of these, but after seeing those menko cards, I REALLY want one!

    When I saw this it was an instant want. Unfortunately I'm quite poor for now. :lol: I think it's the goofy proportions or the boyish face, but I really like this one.

    This is gonna be a great figure. I hope it comes out in all sorts of different color schemes--the simplicity and cleanliness of the design would really lend to nice, vibrant primary colors...

    LOVE this figure... wish I had the funds to buy it now. Also, that uncut sheet of cards is framable IMO, haha!

    This place is becoming redundant even in its redundancies now.

    Only the waist and arms are articulated? Can the head or waist rotate 360?

    To me, there doesn't seem to be any articulation at the legs either, but I am also not sure the waist is even jointed. Sure does affect this guys playability - you know, for people who like that kind of thing in toys. I really want to get in on this pre-order but that seems like an obvious (and extremely unfortunate) oversight.

    Those are legitimate concerns Steve. I was going oh bummer, then did some googling.

    Here's the Flickr from Awesome Toy http://www.flickr.com/photos/awesometoy/

    Looks to me from one of the photo that it'll be a seven parts figure, cool!

    Also love the Zollmen font rip off!!Haha! The illustration with blue clouds is really good too.

    It'll be great if those menko cards reference are somehow incorporated into the packaging.

    Can't see them going through so much effort in producing and marketing the product just for a single run.
    So I hope for a black baron, I think would be quite cool :)

    Yeah, and "Fuck the USA" is engraved on the bottom of one of the feet. So screw these guys.....

    And yet...I'm somehow intrigued...

    Well colour me corrected and extremely impressed and elated. This is going on the 'definite' list now. I love the boot design and was thinking it would be a great toy even as is.

    A few menko cards included would be the perfect addition to this toy. I would love the idea of randomly inserted ones we could trade around. Couldn't be that hard to knock together some repros I am thinking, given the relatively cheap quality of the normal menko cardstock.

    I also might as well post up this excellent illustration of Fake Baron by Michael. It has his own great style, but also would fit right in with some menko monsters.

    Medicom made this available to us, but I hesitated in posting it here for pre-orders just because I can't ever seem to make the minimums and get stuck with extra figures... Crap, had I known I could have helped out. :(
