We’ve already covered the Japanese release of Katsuhiro Otomo’s Short Peace Project on PlayStation 3 few weeks ago. Usually this is something that never make it out of Japan, but incredibly enough, today we’re here to report you that Namco Bandai has announced a localized release for the US.
Any Shenmue fan out there? We guess so! So here’s a good news!
Nop, it’s not about any project/hope/fundraising regarding Shenmue 3, but it’s still good to see that SEGA gave the license to First 4 Figures to create the most amazing and well-made statue of Ryo Hazuki you’ve ever seen!
First 4 Figures presents Ryo Hazuki, the protagonist of the cult-classic Dreamcast game Shenmue, as the first entry in an entirely new line of SEGA All-Star statues which will look at a range of legendary characters from SEGA’s past and present. Standing at 1/6 scale, and 12 inches in height, cast in high quality polystone and painted by hand, he is stood in a ‘ready for action’ stance, ready to take on any challengers as he walks the streets of Yokosuka.
The statue look AMAZING and incredibly detailed. Look the below close-up to the blue-jeans…simply staggering!
The figurine is highly limited to 350 pieces worldwide (even if a previous post by F4F said 750, so we’re not really sure about this). It comes in deluxe full color packaging, hand numbered base (that is the legendary Phoenix Mirror in case you didn’t notice), and includes an authenticity card which allows you to purchase the same number of the model next in the SEGA All-Stars series.
So what’s the price tag? Well…this beauty will cost you $169.99
Yep, it is not cheap, but if you’re already in “shut up and take my money” mood, here’s the link to pre-order it!
Everyone loves SEGA (apart for not making Shenmue 3) and everyone have loved its consoles. Especially if we are talking about Mega Drive (or Genesis if you live in the US) and Dreamcast. So if you agree with this, you’ll probably love these two officially licensed bags from Insert Coin Clothing.
They’re pretty amazing, aren’t they? They’re made out of leather (I think not real one) and really well printed. And they can be all yours for just £30/£35 (or €39/€45 – $42/$49 if you prefer). Well, it’s not a bargain, but still, they’re awesome and perfect for revive those beautiful SEGA consoles.
Insert Coin is not paying us for advertise its products, we genuinely love this stuff (we got the Dreamcast one).
PLEASE NOTE: Due to SEGA licensing, the Dreamcast logo/bag colour received will be based upon your delivery address: Blue – PAL Regions, Red – North America, Orange – Japan. (and this kinda sucks, we know…)
