Japanese anti-piracy mascots pt. 1.
Today I’m going to review Camera Man of Japanese anti-piracy mascots.
Like the title suggested, NO MORE Movie Thief is a series of Japan’s anti-piracy ads that air in theaters before the movie starts along the trailers. The ads usually have Camera Man filming a movie in the theater, and Patrol Lamp Man trying to arrest him. The ads are great and funny, and they quickly become some sort of sensation. You can check out the video below for more info:
Anyway, today I’m going to review Camera Man of NO MORE Movie Thief, and I will review Patrol Lamp Man next week.
The back of the box shows all the possible ways to pose the figures.
The figure is a simple one for S.H. Figuarts. It doesn’t come with a lot of accessories, but it still captures the essence of a S.H. Figuarts figure- the freedom to pose it anyway you want, and the vast amount of articulation points. I really like the figure, and the simpleness only makes the figure more approachable. However, for such a simple figure, the price is not very simple at all. Being $36.99, the figure is only a few bucks shy from most S.H. Figuarts. The amount of things come with it makes the price not worth it at all, unless you’re a big fan of this obscure Japanese mascot.
Stay tuned for Portal Lamp Man next week.
