Mikatan surprises Nendo fans with a New Japan Petit set

Puroresu stars Hiroshi Tanahashi, Satoshi Kojima and Hiroyoshi Tenzan featured

You can file this one under the "never saw it coming" in the Tomopop files: Mikatan has revealed a new Nendoroid Petit set this morning, and it's featuring three of New Japan Pro Wrestling's stars! The Petit set, a collaboration with NJPW owners Bushiroad, includes (left to right in the above image) Hiroyoshi Tenzan, the current IWGP Heavyweight Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi, and Satoshi Kojima. The trio's base is half of a NJPW ring (the ring mat can be flipped over to reveal the other side, so you'll need two sets for a full ring) and a scaled-down IWGP Heavyweight Championship belt is included as an accessory. Tenzan's mask is also removable, if you'd like to display him that way.

There's also going to be a Karuwaza Online Limited Version, which will feature alternate outfits for all three wrestlers, plus a Good Smile-themed ring and a Good Smile Company belt. It is, as you might expect, a very, very orange ring.

Looks like pre-orders will start on the set in mid-December. I am excited about this to put it mildly, and I hope this could be more than a one-off deal. For example, could you imagine a NJPW legends Petit set with Masahiro Chono, Keiji Mutoh and Tiger Mask?

Your head just exploded, didn't it? Sorry about that.
