A Pururun figure would be  Polly Love.

I concur, your Excellency.

Really awesome to see you here again after such a long time, Sir.

I haven't come across anything new on this yet, aside from the fact that during my searches I've noticed a couple more mentions on message boards and stuff, so a few people seem to have taken notice. If anyone's interested in this line in general, there are several nice photos in these message board topics:

http://www.toysdaily.com/discuz/thread-105051-1-9.html
http://www.toysdaily.com/discuz/thread-104945-1-11.html

Coming up in late September is the 50th Super Festival, which is a hobby event organized by Artstorm, the company behind this line of figures. So maybe we'll see something then.

Wait a minute! Late September? That's the same timeframe as the Tokyo Game Show. Of course, it wouldn't be a coincidence, if the new KNT toy would relate to Tatsunoko vs. Capcom? I mean, Gold Lightan does. However, if the Pizza Cats DID make it into the game, it would be a great thing for us all. Then again, the new toy might as well be the Supreme Catatonic!

 Yikes!

Gee, how curious that they would include the KNT logo like that! Where'd you find that picture? I haven't been able to find it anywhere else (but I haven't really looked that hard)

http://artstorm.co.jp/esgokin_series.htm
^^ Here's the toy series on artstorm's site... only a few of the characters from the lineup are available for preorder now, and I haven't found any mention of KNT anywhere... Sad The ones shown look really nice, though! If they do end up releasing a KNT item I reckon it will be handled really well.

Seems like a longshot... but fingers crossed!!

The original source of the photo seems to be here. Everything else seems to have been referring to that site. I haven't been able to find any other corresponding photos either... I have managed to come across other sets of photos from the same event (ACGHK 2009), but none of them seem to give a good view of that poster display.

Anyway, someone informed character designer Tenko about this development on his blog, and it's apparently news to him.

Just to ask this in advance, but what would be the best way to purchase any such KNT figures (if they should be made) from, say, the UK?
A quick look over at http://artstorm.co.jp/ for the Fewture Shop, and it looks like they only deliver to Japan.

I'm not sure where the best place to order anything would be, ANE. After Googling "ES Gokin" it looks like there are a few stores were already taking preorders for the first few figures in the series a few months ago. (Example)

Tomorrow's Super Festival, so hopefully we'll be getting some news soon. I'll be keeping my eyes open and post here about anything I find.

I've been trying to keep up on the news, but still nothing yet as far as I can tell. The 2009 Fall Miyazawa Model Show just took place just a couple days ago, and Artstorm had an ES Goukin display featuring Goshogun and Jeeg, the first two figures in the series. According to this blog post, there were fliers for the upcoming Baikanfu and Godam. No mention of Teyandee, though.  Undecided

I'm still inclined to think that something fishy is going on, as this rumor seems to have originated from a single picture. But, if the flier we saw is legitimate, I would guess that the new toy will be released to celebrate the upcoming 20th anniversary of KNT. Either we'll hear about it sometime next year, or it will never happen... just my $0.02

Yeah, that thought has crossed my mind, too. That's why I've been trying to look for any corroborating photos from the event that picture supposedly came from. One report includes a link to a Photobucket account that is said to have additional photos, but I can't view it because it asks for a password... Huh?

This blog post from last month specifically mentions Yattarou as being scheduled for release by Artstorm. I have yet to find anything official regarding this, but...

Either Yattarou or Nyangoking seem to be the logical choices, so that wouldn't surprise me.

In 2008 Tatsunoko remade Casshern by his 35th anniversary. And Yatterman by his 30th anniversary.
2010: 20 YEARS OF TEYANDEE!!!  Speedy Wink  Guido Smirk  Polly Wink
Maybe Tatsunoko would remade KNT. KNT was a success in Europe and America but in Japan Yattaro, Sukashii and Pururun went unnoticed.
Casshern and Yatterman made oneself known in the West thanks to the remakes, maybe the Nyankii will be more famous in Japan (if there is a remake) but in the West they will be still considered as some of the best anime heroes.   Cool

A new series would be cool  but just if it's a sequel of the original series (Like the Saint Seiya Ovas that we had a couple of years ago) instead a remake... Every remake just ruin the original characters with the new designs...

A sequel... It would be BLOODY BRILLIANT!!!! Imagine that there is a new KNT manga. And that new manga should be published in Shonen Jump (Maybe it should replace Kochikame, I heard that everyone is getting tired of Ryotsu)

Honestly, I'd rather see the original series get a good DVD release than a remake/sequel. And Petrov, KNT actually had pretty good ratings during its run according to this article which cites Newtype magazine.

A sequel would encourage tatsunoko to relase the original series on DVD... Also the KNT had a really open end... Koon didn't look to be happy and wwe all want to know what would be his new evil plan... A new series would start with the city's reconstruction and karamaru being an ally of the Nyankee (Think about him like Phoenix Ikki, Tuxedo Kamen, Blues/Protoman, etc)... A new villain with a more serious story would be welcome without scrap the silly humor of the series (That's the cause of why I hate Dragon Ball Z)...

A new series that go deeply in the backgrounds of the characters and answer questions like: How yattaro, Sukashi and Pururun became the Nyankee? What's the truth behind Kuroi Busho and Nyaggo King? Are there more karakara armors like the one that Karamaru got? KNT showed that is is able to have serious moments in the unique 3 episodes that needed 2 chapters for be fulfilled...

If we get the same old KNT with more focus in story and battles we will have a bomb!!

I used to want a sequel, but I don't know if they could pull one off now. I'd settle for a good DVD release like felinki said. However, I always thought "the manga" by T. Souma would make a great movie. Better than just splicing the first and last two episodes together.

Nothing new on the KNT-specific front, but there is some news about the ES Goukin line in general. The line has suffered from numerous delays, and as far as I can tell the first two figures (Goshogun and Jeeg) are just being released this month, and the next three (Getter 1, 2, and 3) are scheduled for February. Just the other day Artstorm updated their website with pics of the finished Godam with a release date of "Summer 2010". So if we do see anyone from KNT in this line, it might not be for quite a while yet.

Ugh..that'd be right, wouldn't it?

Haven't offered my two cents on this topic yet. Obviously, if it goes through, this will be a fantastic anniversary present for the fans of KNT/SPC.

I'd love to see a Sukashii or Otama figure, but it would seem that Yattarou/Nyangoking will probably be the winner. Although you'd have to think that Pururun would be in with a good chance...

Thanks for keeping us up to date with this felineki.  Guido Smirk
