1/6 anime masterpiece golgo 13 by hot toys

"Golgo 13 (ゴルゴ13, Gorugo Sātīn) is a manga series written and illustrated by Takao Saito, published in Shogakukan's Big Comic magazine since 1969. The series follows Duke Togo, a professional assassin for hire. Duke's alias ("Golgo 13") is short for Golgotha, the place of Jesus Christ's crucifixion.

The manga is one of the longest running adult manga in Japan and has sold over 200 million copies in various formats, including compilation books. It has been adapted into two live-action feature films, two animated films, a television series and three video games." [wiki]
Nearly 40-years on, Hot Toys has adapted Duke into 1/6th-scale via their Anime Masterpiece line - with an April-2009 release date. Blister has it down for 19,800YEN (US$215 / SGD$328). I am not 100% sure if this be a purely domestic-Japan only product, or mass-release. So do check with your fav retailers, yeh?


From images online, the figure looks to be nigh-awesome in it's (quasi-realistic-manga) depiction and style, especially the headsculpt, and of coz, the tailored clothes. Tis mentioned that wire is concealed within the trenchcoat itself (no doubt for action poses = *sweet*). And what's a Hot Toys-figure without rawking accessories?
