Has a Robot Chicken vibe to it

If you've ever wanted to turn the tables on masculine hero figures and make them do girly poses, then this gallery is for you. user bakAnki decided to shoot a set of photos using Ultraman, Kamen Rider, and other male heroes doing the traditional moe-type poses.

It has been a strange day of me pontificating over moe culture, so I don't want to turn this into a political correctness thing. I just appreciate the humor in highlighting how goofy these poses can look on macho men. I've been wanting a figure version of the Hawkeye Initiative and this would be a pretty good start. Check out the source link for the full gallery, and hopefully find some laughs! Or maybe some nightmares...
