R-Kind’s iconic Dobkeratops boss getting superior Figma launch
For me, and plenty of different older online game gamers, there are some enemies and executives which can be well-knit into the material of gaming recollections. Creatures and characters that you just noticed persistently in journal screenshots and print advertisements, repeatedly used to market and promote video games vying to your pocket cash.
One such visible picture is the primary stage boss of Irem’s legendary shmup R-Kind. Dobkeratops, the suspiciously Giger-looking creature with the long-tail and dislodged eyeballs is embedded in my psyche as a callback to my youth, and is without doubt one of the most immediately recognisable, and nostalgic, villains of late ’80/early ’90s arcades.
