MAN-E-NEWS// Baketan’s vintage computer-inspired sofubi revealed…


Not ones to rest on their laurels, the guys behind Baketan are proud to reveal images of yet another figure to hit the wax, an untitled piece inspired by both Nintendo’s OG Gameboy and the Apple Macintosh II! Whilst details are still thin on the ground at present, it would appear that the slab of retro gaming goodness will come in at around the same size as the previously released Nenne, Chi Chi and Nei at 4″ tall. Complete with vintage style switches, buttons, cartridge slots and even – in a nod to previous releases – a pair of cat ears, the adorable figure will hopefully be making its debut in vinyl over the next couple of months… Keep track of the Baketan Instagram feed here for more developments soon!
