Kaiyodo is going to release the Revoltech Yamaguchi No.55 John Klauser the second action figure from the mange/anime “Detroit Metal City” (D.M.C.). Will be released on July 15, 2008. Around 135mm tall, 1,995 yen.

I don’t know a thing about this “Detroit Metal City”, but seems like it’s really popular in Japan since it has anime, live action movie, and NDS game. Looks like some kind of those useless-guy-becomes-a-rock-star story to me. I’ll try to read it if I can find the manga.
