Japan has given us plenty of weird toys and figures, and figure giant, Bandai, is giving us another one. They’ve recently launched a new line of cat figures which they call “Neko Busou,” which means “Armed Cats”. They feature normal-looking cat figures with a twist – they’re armed to the teeth. From guns to bazookas to crane arms to missile launchers, they can certainly put most real-life armies to shame.
The one above is the Neko Busou Tenkomori, and Bandai will release it this August for 1,500 yen. It comes with a jacket, tank treads, canons, missile launchers, and even a flight pack. They also have a set of four cats, which costs 4,320 yen. Tenkomori comes with all the armors, while the 4-pack set comes with four cats with each of the armors. They can also be combined to form a more monstrous cat machine.
Freelance modeler Kazuya Fukuda designed these figures, and all cats are pre-painted. All armors have 3mm joints and can be connected to each other freely. And of course, these figures also require a bit of assembly as well.
