tl;dr A Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaide inflatable figure from 1998 Hong Kong. it's not perfect but makes a cool game-room addition

I found these Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden inflatable figure at the flea market recently. It’s a spin-off comic/anime from the original Bomberman story and I’d actually never heard of it until researching what I’d bought.

They were in the original packaging but, as you can see from the picture, the plastic was severely discolored so I wasn’t sure what the condition of the figure inside would be.

The figure is about 10 inches tall. It doesn’t stand by itself, but instead can be hung from a string attached to its head.

The included ping pong ball is for shoving into the hole in the figure’s stomach, you then squeeze the figure to shoot the ball out. It’s quite crude and doesn’t always work.

I also had to tape down the valve at the back otherwise it would pop and the figure would deflate.
