What's up with.. MONGU?

#1

I see all these “Mongu” edition yoyos

and I’m wondering… What the heck is Mongu?

Looks like a Duncan-specific thing?

The Mongu FHZ came out 10 or 12 years ago, maybe longer. I believe that was the first use of its likeness on a yoyo. It’s pretty collectible as far as FHZs go. The pics you showed are I think both Duncan products as well.

Yeah it seems to be super Duncan specific… and 2005 would be just about 13 years ago!

I thought maybe it was some crazy anime japanese thing I hadn’t followed or something.

I remember when THE Freehand to have was the Mongu edition. I think only 40 were ever made.

How random… Has there been any actual character development for Mongu? Or is it just… Mongu for the sake of being Mongu…

Yeah, we had a few of those floating around somewhere. They had the full zip up hood that covered your face so you can be mongu lol.

Mongu is the hero the yoyo-community deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark(brown) knight.
