This is kinda funny. I saw both the figma Juohmaru and Sakurahime on the website moment ago. But after I revisit the same page again later, they’re both gone! I think they posted them out by mistake. FortunatelyI save all the picture already. =D

Since they took both Juohmaru and Sakurahime page down already, I couldn’t get their height and price in time. So the info about the height and the price might not be right since I make those up. I’ll correct them when they post them out again.

Updated!!! =D

——Description from Manufacturer——

This is where everything started! The original figma, Juohmaru!

Plawres Sanshiro is a manga that began in the 80’s which quickly received an anime adaption. Even now it still holds popularity with its many fans, and now a figma of the PlaWrestler Juohmaru is on its way!

The figma project was originally created as a joint effort between Masaki Asai and Max Factory using these figures as concept models – and now that we have reached the first year anniversary of figma, what better a time could there be to release the two figures that started the figma legend?

  • The original concept model behind the creation of the figma series of figures.
  • Using the smooth yet poseable joints of figma, you can act out various scenes.
  • The detail and care put into the muscles is stunningly accurate, creating a figure with more body than ever before.
  • A flexible plastic was used between the legs, making sure that proportions were kept, without compromising the posability.
  • Three faces are included, including an expressionless face, and various hand parts are also included allowing for a virtually unlimited number of poses.
  • Comes with a poseable figma stand that makes it possible to recreate various scenes.

**Sakurahime sold seperately**
