Longneck’s latest “Maijin” sofubi revealed…


Still proving hugely popular in Japan and just as elusive  as ever to obtain in the West, Longneck/Cosmo Knight Alpha‘s Maijin series is set to receive a new entrant soon in the form of the fine looking chap you see above! Whilst the original Yusei Maijin featured a design inspired by Ooze-It knockoff, Cosmos Alien A, this new iteration appears to be inspired by the vintage gacha series’ Alien B, featuring a similar “fish” shaped head seen in the recent Medicom Toy re-release (check it here). Revealed in prototype form at the recent Comiket convention in Tokyo, we’ll be keeping our fingers that we see more of the figure very soon…
