    Tiny little naked doods from my youth just scare me so I've taken it upon myself to paint them. Nothing overly dramatic here, just some small and simple fun. For those of you that don't know, these are roughly the size of a Lego Minifigure.

    Thanks for looking

    Oooh. Kinnikuman and Asuraman. Although, that armor Kinnikuman is wearing there is supposed to be Robin Mask's armor, which is blue. :D

    Ahh, I used to have a bunch of these when I was younger, too.
    How far back does the anime go, though? I never saw it at all until fairly recently (I thought it was pretty awful, if I'm honest :p ), but it may be much older. I'm certain I had the fig on the right, and that must have been nigh on 20 years ago.

    Yeah, after some major searching on the net for pics and whatnot I just gave up on trying to do them any accurate justice and just went to town. It works for me.

    Right now I only have 3 of these little guys but someone on FB is going to hook me up with a bunch so expect to see more updates to this thread at later dates.

    Very nice I don't have any of them left but I had a ton as well.

    I was getting back into Battle Beast at one point and I found this site.

    littlerubberguys.com

    They have a customs section, tons of info about every type of MUSCLE, and a trading post.

    Google Search: Kinnikuman Images

    The original manga and anime was from the late 70s/early 80s so its really not for everyone. Frankly I recommend skipping at least the first two seasons if you want to see the anime. That or just concentrate soley on the scramble for the throne arc.

    when i read your first line i was like, "you knew my exhibitionist cousin too? omg!"

    hahaha, but yeah, these are great. i used to have a bunch of these in sorts of different colors and shades.

    the armor that kinnikuman is wearing resembles battle-damage he-man armor, lol.

    a few years back someone fought in a MMA bout with the kinnikuman outfit on... can't remember who it was tho...
