Max Factory is going to release the figma 042 Golgo 13 ( ゴルゴ13 ) action figure from the longest running adult manga “Golgo 13” ( ゴルゴ13 ). Will be released in August 2009. Around 150mm tall, 3,619 yen. Bundled with Golgo 13 theme di:stage.

Another scam from Max Factory. You cannot just buy your favorite Golog 13 figma alone, you have to get the Max Factory newest design figure stand “di:stage” too. This Golgo 13 figma set is bundled with the Golgo 13 theme di:stage (fyi, the Golgo 13 theme thingy is just paper craft) which only cost 552 yen if you buy it alone. That means the Golgo 13 figure cost 3,619-552=3,067 yen which is so over priced.

I really hate Max Factory/GSC. I really don’t like how they marketing stuff. They always make us like a fool and force us to pay extra to get the figures that we want. We all know it’s a trap but still we all fall for it. And they’re also the reason why the PVC figure are so $$$ nowadays. It’s really hard to believe we need to pay extra 50% for a single figure compared to 2 years ago. I hate you Max Factory/GSC! But still I’ll keep buying figures for them, I hate myself. XD

——Description from Manufacturer——

From ‘Golgo 13’, a manga and anime series that began back in the 1960s, comes a figma of the professional assassin, Duke Togo.

  • Using the smooth yet poseable joints of figma, you can act out various scenes.
  • A flexible plastic is used for the suit, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
  • Poses of him aiming his rifle can easily be taken using the joints placed in the neck.
  • Two weapons are included – the well-known M16 as well as the 38-caliber revolver. The M16 can also be separated and stored in the included attache case.
  • In addition to the normal face, a grinning face with clenched teeth is included.
  • Various hand parts are included, including a hand to hold his cigar, as well as hands to hold his weapons in various ways.
  • In addition to the normal figma stand, the new generation display base ‘di:stage: Basic Set’ will be sold together with Golgo 13. A paper vignette in the image of a motel and speech bubbles are also included to really recreate the unique world of Golgo 13.
