Real X Head sofubi from Mori that made our heads spin.
The new RXH character shown above, called Bariban, is Mori's tribute to the Metal Hero Series of Tokusatsu, specifically Space Sheriff Sharivan. Over the years, I've discovered that Mori is a huge Metal Hero fan, as well as an avid Spiral Zone and 80's Real Type design aesthetic enthusiast. The futuristic look of his most recent works is an indicator of these little known interests.
Mori and I discussed 2014 a lot during our time visiting together in September (Japan) and October (NYCC), and some special releases are being lined up for a few all new crossover projects that have been quietly cooking in our respective kitchens.
Bariban here would look pretty killer with a RoboCop paintjob.
