I have been writing non stop about Jojo these past weeks, so let’s take a break and get some fresh air with this awesome announcement.
Indeed, Banpresto has announced the release of Hunter x Hunter Ichiban Kuji. For those who don’t know a thing about this great manga, you can have a look on the (new) anime series on Animefreak, or sit down quietly and listen to some HxH podcasts. For those who prefer reading, the Hunter x Hunter wikia also offers some cool explanations about the characters, plot etc. etc.
So, in addition to the figures & goodies released last month (check here for more details), a really nice Kuji is to be released at the beginning of the month.
Some pictures below, more on Banpresto website:
So as you can see:
- Set A: Gon Figure
- Set B: Hisoka Figure
- Set C: Clear files set
- Set D: Kyun Chara Hunter x Hunter – Hunter Exam part
- Set E: Rubber Key Holder
- Last one Hisoka Another Face Ver.
Now, let’s discuss a few items in details
Really cute!!! I like him a lot…. . Around 16cm tall.
Waaahhhh Hisoka!!!!! . For some reasons, he does look a lot like Dio. Especially with this pose. But I must say that Hisoka is much more creepy then Dio . Figure should be 20cm tall.
Kyun Chara Hisoka & Illumi
Arrghhh!!!! So cute… Not so usual to have a figure of my dear Illumi. These are trading figures, so it means that there is luck involved. But I must try hard and get these two mini figures. Around 6.5cm tall.
Last One – Hisoka Another Face Ver.
As the title says… Shows a darker side of one of the most favorite character of Hunter x Hunter. Around 20cm tall. There is only 1 per Kuji, so good luck!!!!
Double Chance, Killua figure
Limited & Lotery item. Around 16cm, monochrome color and only 20pcs available. Good luck again if you’re interested.
So what do you think? Not sure about the online stores retailing them yet. I’ll put some links asap. In the meanwhile, you can always try ebay.
BTW, for those who follow the new anime series, what do you think of Hisoka voice? I do prefer the old one
That’s it. Back to Jojo for next post.
