Try Not to Lose the New 1.5 Centimeter-Tall Kamen Rider Figures
posted on by Bamboo Dong
Japan has always had a knack for creating small, yet amazing, figures. From adorably tiny food to beloved anime gashapon toys, good things often come in small packages. The new Kamen Rider Micro toys from Banpresto are no exception... provided you don't sneeze and blow them off your desk, or lose them forever in the lint traps of your dryer.
Measuring in at a mere 1.5 cm (that's roughly 0.6"), these tiny guys are about as tall as the width of your thumbnail. Despite that, they're still three-dimensional, fully colored, and as far as we can tell, surprisingly detailed, given their size.
Here's a shot of Kamen Rider #1 next to a pencil.
The first round of these 1/140 scale figures will be released May 17 at arcades around Japan, with more to come this summer.
