Pacman / Barrelman

Since I wasn’t able to get the Huck Gee x Freshmanila Puto Barrelman years ago, this Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao Barrelman figure by 5&ADime x Watermoon Studios will have to do :D. What is a barrelman?

taken from wiki:

A barrel man or barrelman is a souvenir doll or statuette popular in the Philippines. The statuette usually consists of a crude male figurine carved out of wood, partially hidden inside a round wooden barrel. When the barrel is taken off, the male figure inside is revealed, sporting a prominent phallic protrusion in the lower part of the figure’s anatomy.

The souvenir is fairly common in gift shops in the Philippines and is somewhat popular among tourists who may be surprised the first time they encounter the object and lift its barrel.
