Griffon Enterprises is going to release the Figutto! FG-008 Yagami Light ( 夜神 月 ) action figure from the manga/anime “Death Note” ( デスノート ). Will be released in May 2011. Around 160mm tall, 4,380 yen.
Guess what? I was just thinking about the Figutto! series last night before I went to bed. I thougth Griffon was going to drop it since they didn’t announce any new Figutto! figure for a long time. But wow, today we have 2 new Figutto! action figures!! They’re Yagami Light and Ryuk from Death Note!
I think the Figutto! Yagami Light is just so-so. He looks good but nothing really outstanding. The paint job is kinda plain and the 3 facial expression are way too similar. But still I think the Death Note fans wouldn’t mind since there aren’t many affortable and nice looking Yagami Light figure in the market. =]
Now let’s look at the Figutto! Ryuk. Wow, I think he is marvelous! The paint job is so impressive and his facial expression is really nice. And I like how Griffon made him so much bigger than Light. But he isn’t cheap, 5,700 yen is quit a lot for us who are too used to the cheapo price tag for action figure. But then again, there aren’t many affortable and nice looking Ryuk figure in the market, I guess he will still sold like hot cake.
