Pre-orders have opened for two strange new Pop Team Epic plastic model figures of Popuko and Pipimi, who can now transform into beetles. Popuko’s figure is based on a rhinoceros beetle while Pipimi’s figure is based on a stag beetle.
The plastic model figures are manufactured by Fujimi and will be released as a set of two sometime in August 2023. Pre-orders can be made on several online retailers such as Amazon Japan, AmiAmi, and Hobby Search for varying prices.
The plastic model kit for the figures includes stickers of Popuko and Pipimi’s faces, along with optional stickers with various expressions that can be placed on each body. The main chest and leg parts are moveable to allow for creative poses. To adjust the figures into their flight posture, clear molded inner parts can be replaced and added on each body. It requires no glue or special tools for assembly.
Crunchyroll is currently streaming both season of Pop Team Epic and describes the synopsis as:
Crude, rude, and a little…cute? Get ready for the larger-than-life attitude of Popuko and Pipimi, the small and tall stars of Pop Team Epic! Based off the bizarre four-panel webcomic by Bukubu Okawa comes a comedy that’ll throw you off with its out-there jokes and intense absurdity. You think you’re ready for these girls? Think again, F#%**er!
