FIGURAMA COLLECTORS UNCHAINS KANEKI FOR THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN WITH YAMORI
8月 07, 20182 min read
The first statue in Figurama’s Elite Fandom line captures Tokyo Ghoul’s season finale showdown between half-ghoul Kaneki and his deranged tormentor, 13th Ward’s Yamori. Rearing 63cm (over 24in) high on the newly-spawned fourth tentacle of his crimson kagune, Kaneki hovers in midair as Yamori lunges up to meet him, snarling and bearing his incomplete clawed kakuja. The cracked tile floor of Jason’s torture chamber erupts with cinematic Easter Eggs as predator and prey throw themselves into combat—knocking aside trays of torture instruments, a bucket of blood, and the rusty chair that restrained Kaneki for over 10 days. A Chinese red-headed centipede scuttles past Yamori’s discarded mask. Most ominous of all, a single white carnation lies beneath the carnage, dyed with sanguinary flecks that foreshadow its transformation into a spider lily—and Kaneki embracing his inner ghoul.
Crafted from premium polystone and painstakingly hand-painted, the 1/6-scale spectacle hangs frozen in time over a base intricate enough to display solo. The circular stand is studded with iconic ghoul masks crafted by Uta, representing the division between the peaceful and terrorist factions of Anteiku and Aogiri. Transparent panes with flickering LED lighting highlight the masks and recreate the eerie urban tone of the anime.
Conceptualized by Daniel Kamarudin and masterfully sculpted by Daniel Simon with support from the award-winning artist, Keita Okada, Figurama’s Kaneki vs Yamori diorama encompasses the extent of Tokyo Ghoul lore, taking inspiration from the anime’s visceral adrenaline with touches of the manga’s anatomical realism and finely-etched details.
Sold in a highly-limited, 600-piece release, Figurama’s exclusive Tokyo Ghoul diorama includes optional heads for both Kaneki and Yamori. As a bonus, the diorama includes two weathered stands embellished with the cryptic Tokyo Ghoul logo, so collectors can conveniently and attractively display the secondary Kaneki and Yamori heads like miniature 1/6-scale busts alongside the diorama. Fans can expect an estimated Q2 2019 release, with pre-orders going live on August 19th for $725.00. Monthly payment plans available.
