Check out Inflames toys x Newsoul toys 1/6 Story Of A Journey To The West – Sun Walker (孫行者)

Journey to the West (Chinese: 西遊記; pinyin: Xī Yóu Jì) is a Chinese novel published in the 16th century during the Ming Dynasty and attributed to Wu Cheng’en. It is one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. The novel is an extended account of the legendary pilgrimage of the Tang dynasty Buddhist monk Xuanzang who traveled to the “Western Regions”, that is, India, to obtain sacred texts (sūtras) and returned after many trials and much suffering. The Ming dynasty novel adds elements from folk tales and the author’s invention, that is, that the Buddha gave this task to the monk and provided him with three protectors who agree to help him as an atonement for their sins. These disciples are Sun Wukong, Zhu Bajie, and Sha Wujing, together with a dragon prince who acts as Xuanzang’s steed, a white horse.

Sun Wukong is the name given to this character by his teacher, Subhuti, the latter part of which means “Awakened to Emptiness” (in the Waley translation, Aware-of-Vacuity); he is called Monkey King.

His primary weapon is the “Ruyi Jingu Bang”, which he can shrink down to the size of a needle and keep in his ear, as well as expand it to gigantic proportions. The rod, originally a pillar supporting the undersea palace of the Dragon King of the East Sea, weighs 17,550 pounds, which he pulls out of its support and swings with ease. The Dragon King had told Sun Wukong he could have the staff if he could lift it, but was angry when the monkey was actually able to pull it out and accused him of being a thief; hence Sun Wukong was insulted, so he demanded a suit of armour and refused to leave until he received one.
These are preview pictures of the soon-to-be-released Inflames toys x Newsoul toys 1/6 scale Story Of A Journey To The West – Sun Walker (孫行者) 12-inch figure. This is certainly not the first Monkey King figure to have ever been released. Inflames Toys also released the 1/6th scale 齊天大圣 The monkey king limited edition 12-inch collectible figure (preview pictures posted HERE). There was also the Very Cool x Coo Model 1/6 scale The Monkey King (Donnie Yen as Sun Wukong) 12-inch figure (posted HERE). Even the Japanese were in on it. Check out the Medicom Toys RAH (Real Action Heroes) 1/6 scale Monkey Magic Saiyūki Gokū 12-inch Figure reviewed HERE.

Sun’s behavior is checked by a band placed around his head by Guanyin, which cannot be removed by Sun Wukong himself until the journey’s end. Xuanzang can tighten this band by chanting the “Ring Tightening Mantra” (taught to him by Guanyin) whenever he needs to chastise him. The spell is referred to by Xuanzang’s disciples as the “Headache Sutra”, which is the Buddhist mantra “oṃ maṇipadme hūṃ”. Xuanzang speaks this mantra quickly in repetition.
Sun Wukong’s childlike playfulness is a huge contrast to his cunning mind. This, coupled with his great power, makes him a trickster hero. His antics present a lighter side in what proposes to be a long and dangerous trip into the unknown.

Marvel Chibi superheroes: Avengers Assemble! + X-Men, Fantastic Four, Spider-Man & Venom

Chibi (ちび or チビ) is a Japanese slang word meaning “short person” or “small child”. The word has gained currency among fans of manga and anime. Its meaning is of someone or some animal that is small. It can be translated as “little”, but is not used the same way as chiisana [小さな] (tiny, small, little in Japanese) but rather cute. In English-speaking anime and manga fandom (otaku), the term chibi has mostly been conflated with the “super deformed” style of drawing characters with oversized heads or it can be used to describe child versions of characters.

These Marvel Chibi superhero figures were part of my November haul (see post HERE). I got them because they were cute (and cheap!). They didn’t cost a lot and they were too cute to resist. The wife likes them and what the wife wants, the wife gets. After all, she supports me in my hobby 100% and puts up with having all the figures and toys displayed all over the house. She loves the whole toy museum look which she says makes the house unique and different from other houses. I’m so blessed to have such a supportive wife and partner so this toy blog post is dedicated to her :)

I’m not even sure who produced these as I got them loose and apparently there are twelve in the complete set. The picture above is pretty much the Avengers Assembled, the Marvel Studios film version consisting of Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Captain America and Black Widow (minus Hawkeye). The other characters in the Marvel Chibi superheroes set are: Falcon, Spider-Man, Venom (only super villain included), Wolverine, Storm, The Thing and Silver Surfer.

I think the colors for Captain America are not right so I decided to tweak it to the color closest to Cap. I don’t know why they didn’t get the colors right in the first place ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
