IMEN Robotech/Macross








The Japanese often convert anime characters to those sweetie cute figurines like SD version or Nendoroid. I guess to the westerner, the way of converting characters from cartoon, movie and comic into cute figurines will be turning them to IMEN.

Call them ugly or not, these Macross/Robotech IMEN by Toynami are adorable in their own ways. They ain't very tall, only standing approximately 2". Each card comes in a pair and if complete, you will have characters from Macross/Robotech pairing up with their IMEN battroid.

Each IMEN has magnet fixed to the base of their feet that helps the figurine stands firmly with the support of metallic coin. One side of the coin has IMEN logo and when flipped over, it's Robotech logo.

I saw these at ToyRus before but I didn't get it. No surprise you get it as you are a BIG Macross fan.

Toy'R'Us in Singapore had also shrank over the years. I remember Toy'R'Us used to be 2 levels like a warehouse with a lot more toys.

Similar to Lego, Megabloks or PLaymobile but unique in their own ways. Hee! Hee!

>> mangyver5223
Yes, but IMEN seems to have the licenses to produce a lot of characters from popular anime, cartoon, movies & comic.
