Fujiko F. Fujio Super Robot: Voltronmon


Fujimoto Hiroshi and Mitoo Abiko are legendary manga creators known for their prolific run from the 60s to the late 80s. Their most famous character is Doraemon, who is probably as iconic as Astro Boy and Pikachu. The two worked under one pen name, Fujiko Fujio. When they parted ways during the late 80s Hiroshi used the pen name Fujiko F. Fujio until his death in 1996. To celebrate Hiroshi’s 81st birthday, Bandai will be releasing this epic Fujiko F. Fujio super robot.

The super robot consists of smaller action figures of Doraemon, Dorami, Perman, Korosuke, Chimpui, and Gonsuke.

With the exception of Chinpui, the characters are all robots, making this tribute less far-fetched compared to the Disney Chogokin that Bandai released a couple of years ago.

The Fujiko F. Fujio super robot will be available in Japan this November for ¥14, 904 (~$146 USD). Doraemon and Mojacko were two of the anime I watched growing up. Seeing that blue cat brings back memories.
