Keshigomu DB Part 2 Upa figurine

  • Dorakeshi Keshi-Gomu DB Part 2
  • Release date: Unknown

In the 80's, a series of miniature quarter-priced rubber machine toys was released, much like the Ultimate Muscle series and coming in randomized colors. They are known as Dorakeshi Keshi-Gomu and are rather hard to come by. All characters in this set came in a random color and all of them were very tiny and immobile. Upa appears once in this miniature set, although the same mold appears in numerous colors, such as red or yellow. The mini rubber figurine comes with an innocent smile on his face, both arms to his sides and his feet in unison.
