The 2016 edition of the Shizuoka Hobby Show has featured plenty of new plastic models, tools, figures, and of course, GunPla from Bandai, however, one seems to have caught the attention of Japanese social media the most, and yes, its really one of those Gundam character busts.


The new meme is inspired by the “figure rise busts” figure of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans’ Akihiro Altland, which was introduced during the Shizuoka Hobby Show 2016. Here’s how the Japanese had a good laugh at poor Akihiro’s expense!

So far, the figure has not been released yet, but given the amount of attention the loving internet has given it so far, things might get interesting when it really hits the shelves.
