Hugely Popular! Additional Sales of “Tower of the Sun on the Cup” Confirmed

“Tower of the Sun on the Cup” collaboration with Taro Okamoto goes on sale; gigantic objet d’art also unveiled

Additional sales have been confirmed for “Tower of the Sun on the Cup” from Kitan Club, a company that continues to put out unique capsule toys. Sales will begin on April 29 (Wed.).

“Fuchico on the Cup” is a popular series of mini figures cooperatively developed by Kitan Club and manga artist Tanaka Katsuki of which more than 8 million have been sold. “Tower of the Sun on the Cup” was released as a collaboration item with artist Taro Okamoto.

The Tower of the Sun, which the figures are themed after, is a structure created by artist Okamoto in 1970 for the Japan World Fair held in Osaka. The structure still stands today in Expo Commemoration Park and even 40 years later it hasn’t grown stale. This unique-looking structure has appeared in countless manga and movies.

“Tower of the Sun on the Cup” went on sale in late-February of this year, but they sold out within an hour of advance sales at the Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum. After that, they became quite the difficult items to obtain, and now additional sales have been confirmed.

The lineup features five versions of the Tower of the Sun and one figure modeled after none other than Okamoto. With the inclusion of a secret figure as well, there are seven total to collect.

“Tower of the Sun on the Cup” will be re-released at the Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum in Minami-Aoyama, Tokyo, on April 29. Moreover, there is a gigantic objet d’art of “Tower of the Sun on the Cup” that is approximately 20 times larger than its mini figure counterparts looking down from the railing of the museum’s veranda. This peering Tower of the Sun is cute and is likely to become a new photo spot.
