Release dates are set for the three Pac-Man figures which were debut in Tamashii Nation 2020! Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the titled video game, three brands created three distinctively different Pac-Man figures. Let’s take a look at the individual item one by one:
PROPLICA Pac-Pak Pac-Man
For many years PROPLICA has brought anime prop items to life (such as the Moon Stick from Sailor Moon and the Nichirin Blade from Demon Slayer). This time, the brand turns the 8-bit Pac-Man character into 3D figure! A roller is located at the bottom which will open and close the mouth as it moves. What’s more, the roller will trigger the waka-waka-waka sound which replicates its classic in-game sound! A great little toy which will bring smile to Pac-Man fans!
Pre-order begins on January 8, 2021 at participating retailers and release date is scheduled in June 2021.
From S.H.Figuarts comes a characterized Pac-Man figure! The spheric figure comes with fully articulated limbs; from simple arm raising pose to full speed running action, you can pose the figure in full range of action with ease! The package comes with interchangeable hands, a winking expression faceplate, plus a 8-bit style cherry and Blinky as optional accessories! If you want a highly posable Pac-Man figure, this would be a great piece for you!
Pre-order begins on January 8, 2021 at participating retailers and release date is scheduled in May 2021.
What if Pac-Man becomes a mecha? Here comes the CHOGOKIN Pac-Man, a die-cast mecha which is operated by Pac-Man! Inspired by the first CHOGOKIN Mazinger Z figure released in 1972, the mecha can do rocket punch and transform into vehicle mode! Two eye modes are available which is adjustable with a dial in the back. The mouth can be open to reveal the cabin inside the robot, which houses the mini Pac-Man figure inside. The package comes with 4 mecha-style ghosts to interact with the mecha Pac-Man. A pedestal is also included so you can display the whole package on the stage!
