Hilarious NSFW Design Flaw Found in Japanese Power Rangers Toy

Okay, so it’s one thing when a relatively small Japanese manufacturer with no real experience in foreign markets accidentally makes a mascot named “Fukuppy” and innocently announces it, in English, to the world. You can chalk that up to an inexperienced marketing team working in a field – in this case the English language – they didn’t have much experience with.

It’s another thing entirely for an enormous mega-corporation to release a children’s toy that clearly has a gigantic, throbbing boner:

bonertrain1This is a toy from the newest entry in the Super Sentai series that was re-purposed for western audiences into Power Rangers long ago. This season, as though it weren’t immediately obvious, is train themed, and like previous series entries, comes with a toy collection that has snap-together parts that form a giant robot hero.

This time, apparently just going through the motions after having the same meeting for every new season of the series for the last 15 years or so, engineers missed a blatant design quirk: Kids have to assemble the giant robot so that it initially has three legs and the third leg must be folded all the way up to form a sort of chest armor for the figure.

Any time someone refers to a “third leg,” you know there’s going to be trouble. And, alas, if you only fold the third leg halfway up, it becomes an undeniable, giant, giant robot boner.

Protip: “I guess I forgot to fold my third leg all the way up” is not an acceptable pickup line anywhere or at any time.

For reference, here’s what the model is supposed to look like:

In other words, sort of like an unusually well-hung teenager tucking his unexpected hard-on into the waistband of his pants when the teacher calls on him to demonstrate a problem on the board.
