Kaiju Big Battel Flesh Keshi Mini Figure SetI saw the Kickstarter and hopped on the Kaiju Big Battel Flesh Keshi Mini Figure Set as well as its glow counterpart. The big orders seemed to go out last, so I got mine just a couple of weeks ago.

After OMFG, MOTUSCLE, SUCKLE, and countless others the big questions are always the same. "How close does it color-match M.U.S.C.L.E.?" or "Are they flexible like the original M.U.S.C.L.E.?" In this case, I'd say the pink is a little more saturated - but not as pink as October Toys' O.M.F.G. series 3 - and they're probably the most flexible keshi I've picked up outside of Super7's M.U.S.C.L.E. releases from various licenses. They feel huge, thanks to bigger limbs and the fact some are as big as 2 1/2-inches tall.

The figures are pretty smooth, with some textures here and there. Poses are similar to the original M.U.S.C.L.E. figures with extended arms, claws, fists, and hands on arms with bent elbows. Figures seem to have a little more depth - particularly the Sky Deviler - who looks like a lot of other existing creatures from Japanese pop culture. The baby companion figure is much, much, much smaller - it's the runt of this 11-pack. Thankfully the big Robox and French Toast make up for the lack of mass on the little figure, taking relatively simple designs and making them into nice toy wrestlers. One figure is a waffle with hands and feet - there's a mouth, too, and very limited pastry texture sculpted on the figure. Meanwhile, Robox seems to have captured the simple spirit of classic figures but adds in giant bendy robot arms. It turned out well.

Dr. Cube and his minion fit in nicely. The bad Doctor looks like the easiest Halloween costume of all time - a t-shirt, pants, stethoscope, and box head. His faction symbol appears on the back of his shirt, and his minion looks like a long-haired 1980s slasher villain complete with cleaver and mask. It's very Quiet Riot.

The set is rounded out by a delightful mix of familiar and new creatures. Pheyden is Matt Doughty's character, whom he played in a Kaiju Big Battle match a few years ago. Silver Potato and Pedro Plantain carry out the food theme with some simple, but delightful poses. AstroRoach looks like another great creature mascot character, with the show-stopping Cycloptopuss bringing you the sea creature menace you didn't know you needed in your life. Its claws, tentacles, seaweed, and shell look great. This is a winner - it's a shame it isn't fully painted, because there's just so much going on with the sculpt.

I could go on about the detail and general quality, but these are sturdy, flexible, and creative characters based on an underrated part of pop culture. More figures are coming, and if you like these, you'll want those too. Nothing here will change the world in terms of innovation or play features, but they're a great next step in the ongoing keshi collector world. They also are better designed - each figure seems to be a single piece of plastic, not with other bits glued on like some in the past. While these are adult collectibles, they seem just as good as a lot of the kid toy figures we've had recently.
