The many faces of Yagami Light (Raito) 夜神 月
More surprise figure releases! And this time Yagami Light and Ryuk the Shinigami (Death God) from Death Note (デスノート). Definitely brings back nostalgic feelings for those exciting moments when we were chasing after plot developments of the anime/manga :)
Title: figutto! DEATH NOTE Light Yagami Action Figure [Griffon Enterprises]
Price: 4,380 yen (w/tax)
Available: May 2011
Size: about 160 mm (non-scale)
Includes display base and has 16 points of articulation and original jointing. Includes numerous option hands and faces. Sculpted by Piron.
Quite reasonable for the price considering the number of accessories included. I already have the Real Action Heroes version that has a beautiful face sculpt of Light, so I have no excuse to spend extra on this figure :-\ and with my bank account potentially crippled by RAH Hei… sigh… he is out of the question.
I wonder if a cheaper version figma is going to follow? And look at the long-chained hand-cuffs. Can we also expect figutto L to pop up in the coming months? Let’s wait and see. It seems that this is going be really exciting year for bishonen figures! :D
However, that’s a not so nice joint space on the arm… Does anyone own a figutto? How is the quality of the figure?
Anyway, Shinigami Ryuk will also be released in late May too at 5,700 yen (w/tax) Even if I buy Ryuk, I don’t think I’ll ever display him because of his scary face. Will definitely get into trouble with folks at home ^^;;
