Info text from the maker’s site (Triad Toys)
Samurai Champloo サムライチャンプルー is one of the best anime series ever created. Consisting of twenty-six episodes that was originally broadcasted on the television network, Fuji TV, Samurai Champloo was later broadcasted on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim in 2005. Created and directed by the legendary Shinichiro Watanabe, whose previous work, Cowboy Bebop, became a cult hit and continues to be a fan favorite.
Jin (First image) (Seiyuu: Sato Ginpei 佐藤銀平)
Quiet, dignified, disciplined and enigmatic, Jin is in every respect the polar opposite of Mugen. A classically-trained swordsman with a precise and lethal fighting style, Jin has lightning fast draws that leave few opponents who can match his skills.
Mugen (Second image) (Seiyuu: Nakai Kazuya 中井和哉)
Raised in the rough outskirts of Ryukyu, Mugen is an eccentric tough-as-nails street fighter. His unique free-for-all fighting style which he calls “champuru kendo” leaves few opponents who could match his unpredictable moves. His lack of respect for authority constantly gets him into trouble, with which Mugen shrugs off with his sword in hand.
Both Samurai Champloo Jin and Mugen 12 Inch figure features:
– New Triad Toys Otaku 2.0 body with over 35 points of articulation!
– 360 moveable eyes system allowing full independent rotation of the eyes!

Delayed: 27 March 2009 and Delayed again: 24 April 2009 (will it turn into a delaying nightmare? They’ve already charged my credit card *_*;;; ) BUT as long as they do deliver within reasonable time frame and give us quality products, I’m willing to wait a bit. DELAYED AGAIN: 29 June 2009. AND AGAIN: End December 2009? FINALLY!!! Released on 18 December 2009 *I wonder why there were no tears of joy* Too long… the excitement had waned. x_x Anyway… have yet to receive them. Should be good tho… I believe.
I’m most interested in the eyes… compared to Medicom Toy’s static faces, the option to be able to pose their eyes as well make these figures seem even more attractive ^^ I’m sold! Let’s see how they really look like when they arrive.
