Every college student’s favorite late night meal is having its 50th anniversary this year! To celebrate, Bandai is releasing a 1:1 scale inedible Cup Noodle model kit! That’s right! Have you ever say down with your steaming styrofoam cup of noodles and thought to yourself, “Man, this is great! I just wish I couldn’t eat this!”

To get as close to the tantalizing reality of Cup Noodles as possible, Bandai 3D scanned actual noodles, egg, shrimp, and “mystery meat!” How did they get such unprecedented access to these coveted Nissin artifacts!?

You can pre-order this slightly less edible Cup Noodles for $26 for a September 2020 release at the following fine e-tailers!

Product Description

This 1/1 scale model kit is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Cup Noodle!  This collaboration between Bandai Hobby and Nissin will be only available in Japan and North America! 

Actual noodles, egg, shrimp, “mystery meat”  have been 3D scanned and converted into intricately detailed plastic model parts. The “noodleblock” parts unique to CUP NOODLE have been divided into several parts during the designing process, enabling the rare experience ofassembling the “dense noodle block structure that easily loosens in hot water” in plastic model kit form.

The leeks are made from vinyl material and can be cut to user preference.  The molding is so precise that even the fine print nutritional information has been recreated. Please note, product cannot replicate the 3 minute cooking time.
