I… LIKE… :O~~~
A follow-up Square Enix figure statue to the equally drool-worthy Vagabond Miyamoto Musashi.
And also equally high damage at US$189.99…
Based on Inoue Takehiko’s epic manga Vagabond, Seijuro is the heir to the Yoshioka school of swordfighting. Although his entire family is bent on reclaiming their honor from legendary swordsman Miyamoto Musashi, Seijuro is somewhat of a carefree playboy… until he meets Musashi himself.
Ha~ carefree playboy… ^^ yum.
Statue stands at 8.7 inches tall and is made of poly-resin. Available end of March 2009.
Unlikely I’ll go break my bank for this but it certainly is very tempting. Awesome detail and sculpt. Let’s see.
Additional info about Musashi:
Miyamoto Musashi, born Shinmen Takezou, grew to be a large man of great power. But with that power came an aggression difficult to control.
As a youth Takezou always found himself at war with the others around him, causing him to be alone. Despite his violent tendencies however Takezou also held a great tenderness within, capable of seeing and understanding many things about life, if only he could keep his agression in check.
At the age of 17 Takezou was caught by the local authorities and sentenced to death for his crimes. However, under the guidance of a priest, Takezou learnt how to channel this aggression into something else.
From that time on Takezou forever changed his name to Miyamoto Musashi, a name that would become famous, and began his journey down the path of the warrior, living his life by the sword, determined to be the greatest swordsman in Japan.
