Chogokin Hello Kitty will shoot you with her rocket paw


Cutest cool Japan mashup in recent years

There's a Chogokin Hello Kitty figure in the works. That's huge news for people who know what Chogokin means, but for the rest of you this means soon you would be able to purchase a Hello Kitty toy with rocket punch. 

Rocket punch is a genre staple, a trademark, of cool giant robots. Putting Hello Kitty in the same class as Mazinger and Kotetsu Jeeg, this Tamashii Nation toy evokes not only cuteness, but like her Sanrio brand, universal nostalgia; at least, for a certain demographic. This Hello Kitty toy will come with a mini Hello Kitty pilot, and can transform into three different modes. You can also change its expression from normal to angry. I think Angry Hello Kitty has a lot of appeal...

This 40th anniversary of Chogokin release will be available in June of 2014 for 4400 yen. It's probably a Japan-only release, so you know where to look when the time comes.
