Unlike the Doko Demo Issyo which from the Revoltech Yamaguchi Series, Danboard comes from the Revoltech 2G Series. Each series of the Revoltech are sculpted by different artist.

Danboard is a character from Yotsuba&!, an ongoing comedy manga created by Kiyohiko Azuma. Danboard is a cardboard costume, made by one of the character named Miura Hayasaka. Danboard only appears in one chapter though! But still, the Revoltech Danboard becomes one of the biggest selling Revoltech!

The Original and 7 Eleven only share differences on the cardbox print. They have same accesories which consist of Miura's head, head joint, and a stand base

The Danboar mini Amazon .co.jp version does not come with a head, it only consist of a stand base and revoltech container

The reason why I acquire three of them is because I like them so much! Danboards are so photogenic and above all, she (yup, Danboard is a girl) comes from one of my favorite manga series:D

Since I like to make stories using Danbo, I give them names. It’s just gonna be a pain if I have to type Danboard mini Amazon.co.jp Version every time I wanna mention her….so here’s  what to call them:

This is how she looks witout the cardbox head
This is how she looks without the cardboard head
Even though it's a girl, Biggie plays a role as a male and a father! Notice the eyes? every Danbo has a glowing eyes (except the broken ones)

      Thanks😀
      Mini Danbo is about 300.000 Rupiahs….it’s about 50 Singapore dollars…It’s being re-issued by amazon though, so it’s not that rare yet..

    it’s been discontinued everywhere!
    other than on ebay, which is rather expensive >.<
