Manufacturer promises “many ways to play with them.”

When creating capsule toys, some companies go after the surreal entertainment value in faithfully recreating the mundane, like miniature rice cookers, or even tiny replica capsule toy vending machines. But on the other end of the spectrum, some manufacturers go as bizarre as they can in the design process.

For its latest endeavor, capsule toy maker Proof is clearly going with the latter option.

The upcoming release is called Tentacle Paradise, or technically “Tentacle☆Paradise,” with a fancy, playful star forcing its points way right into the center of the name. 400 yen (US$3.70) gets you a set of eight tentacles, about 10.8 centimeters (4.3 inches) in height reaching upwards from an included base. The lineup consists of six colors: pink, yellow-green, green, blue, and two flesh tones, as well as three different textures: classic suction cup, studded, or smooth with a pinch and bulge at the tip (and yes, the pinch-and-bulge design corresponds to the flesh-colored tentacles).

So what are you supposed to do with these things? Well, Proof proudly proclaims “There are many ways to play with them after you wrap them around your toy figures,” and demonstrates by entwining a cute, cuddly stuffed animal penguin in the pink version.

However, it seems pretty obvious that the wink-and-nod suggested (and suggestive) way to use these is to wrap them around an anime character figure, recreating scenes of animated naughty tentacle porn, or perhaps casting characters from less lascivious series into such situations for the first time.

Proof is giving everyone ample time to look forward to/dread the arrival of Tentacle Paradise, since the line doesn’t go on sale until October (although you can pre-order a bundle of six tentacles already online here through Rakuten). In the meantime, this is probably as good a time as any to remind everyone about an important thing to check for when buying used anime figures.
