Phoenix Ikki HQS by Tsume Masami Kurumada Edition
We finally answer the prayers of all the fans who asked us to resurrect the Phoenix saint. Ikki comes back to life in a manga colored version, tribute to Kurumada Masami.
2nd statue published by Tsume, Phoenix Ikki has been very successful and its 300 pieces has been sold out quickly… to the great displeasure of our newly come fans.
Cyril Marchiol explains:
“When I started Tsume, our means were limited of course. Now, we make 600 pieces for a gold saint. So obviously, only 300 pieces for a bronze saint is not enough and we caused a lot of frustration.”
Now we offer a new version of Ikki, colored as in the manga. It can satisfy new fans without betraying those who follow us since the beginning. That’s the reason why its run is more important than “classical” Ikki’s, so that it can remain the most rare item of our catalogue.
“We also wanted the new version to have a purpose. Being a tribute to the very man who created this great universe, we really love the result. Ikki is the character that changed the most between the manga and the anime, the color set is very interesting and this statue is eventually very different to the previous one.”
