Manga-Inspired Shohei Ohtani Minifigures Released by OYO


OYO has given Shohei Ohtani a pair special manga-inspired minifigures for a limited edition box set.

2018 OYO Shohei Ohtani Manga Minifigure Set

Usually, OYO minifigs are done with small button eyes. For these Ohtani pieces, the eyes and facial expressions are much bigger, like what you’d find in a Japanese manga comic or an anime show.

The two-figure package pairs up Ohtani as both a pitcher and a batter. One has him in an Angels home uniform and the other in a road jersey.

The limited edition release comes with both figures plus a special baseball diamond-style base they can be displayed on. Packaging is also in both English and Japanese.

OYO’s Tim Notaro designed the pieces.

These aren’t the only Ohtani OYOs. He’s also got a couple of regular figures — one pitching and one hitting — that are part of the main line.

The set carries a suggested price tag of $19.99. They can be bought through the OYO website or anywhere the figures are sold.
