PRESS RELEASE –
VIZ Media continues to generate momentum for its smash hit anime and manga property, ONE-PUNCH MAN, as it announces a pair of key new consumer product license partners, FUNKO and ThreeZero.
The new partners each will develop and leverage a unique array of high quality collectibles, including vinyl figures and standard and special edition poseable 1/6 scale action figures.
Pop culture manufacturer FUNKO will add ONE-PUNCH MAN to its bestselling lines of POP! Vinyl and Dorbz figures as well as develop a Mystery Mini (Blind Box) release and other accessories. Additional information is available at: https://funko.com/.
Renowned Hong Kong action figure company, ThreeZero, offers a high-end 1/6 scale rendition of Saitama, with Genos in development. The Saitama figure is available now in a standard as well as a special edition variant. The standard release features the lead character, Saitama, outfitted in his One-Punch Man costume and includes alternate heads with different facial expressions. The special edition depicts an alternate, “off-duty” version of Saitama outfitted in his “Oppai” hoodie. Additional information is available at: http://www.threezerostore.com/.
In ONE-PUNCH MAN, nothing about Saitama passes the eyeball test when it comes to superheroes, from his lifeless expression to his bald head to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking guy has a not-so-average problem – he just can’t seem to find an opponent strong enough to take on! Every time a promising villain appears, he beats the snot out of ’em with one punch! Can Saitama finally find an opponent who can go toe-to-toe with him and give his life some meaning? Or is he doomed to a life of super-powered boredom?
