CoolrainLabo x Yama — Fly Cat x Buddeng

download

Yama has teamed up with Coolrain's CoolrainLabo on a fun WWII-inspired project blending CoolrainLabo's Fly Cat concept with his Supreme meets Spirituality Buddeng resin figure. As you can see, it looks like there will be two versions, one featuring the Fly Cat character while the other is essentially a WWII pilot variant of Buddeng.  Each features vintage flight gear and carries a shark bomb.  Based on an early sketch, it appears that CoolrainLabo initially had plans for a separate Sky Cat (Fly Cat) ENBT (Enjoy Break Time) figure, complete with customary bench.  No word yet on release info for these two fun collabo figures.
