“Cannon D. Ball” Mini 4WD Car Designed by Hiroyuki Takei Releasing This Fall

With the national “Japan Cup 2017” currently underway (the annual Mini 4WD national tournament), it has been officially announced that in Fall 2017, the “Cannon D. Ball (Brand Name)” (キャノン”D”ボール(商品名)) Mini 4WD will be released. This is yet another Mini 4WD car designed by Hiroyuki Takei in relation to his Hyper Dash! Yonkuro manga that is currently running in the Corocoro Aniki magazine. In the issue that released earlier this week, this same image (as shown left and posted on Takei’s twitter) was printed and he added that there is a “secret” about this car that has yet to be revealed.


The Mini 4WD car was also teased in Mid-May at the Shizuoka Hobby Show, as posted on Twitter by AmiAmi Hobby News. That single announcement image is presented below.

The 2nd compiled volume of Hiroyuki Takei’s Hyper Dash! Yonkuro will be released in Japan on July 12th. Similar to the first volume, there will be a “limited edition” version of the manga in addition to the “standard edition.” The limited edition will feature a gold plated version of the “Rise-Emperor” Mini 4WD car with the standard edition of the manga. The ISBN of the manga is 9784099418960 and cost 2700 yen (tax included). The cover of the volume will most likely feature the artwork in this color page spread from this month’s Corocoro Aniki issue.
