Kotobukiya has added a new Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop) figurine to their ARTFXJ Statue lineup! The figure line is designed to make Japanese characters more accessible to their fans around the world.
This 1/8th scale figurine is approximately 9.5 inches tall (about 240mm) and can be preordered now through the Kotobukiya Online Store for $149.99. He comes with a few interchangeable parts to help create a more customizeable experience. The solemn face, coatless upper body, and hand holding cigarette parts are exclusive bonuses from ordering through the Kotobukiya store.
“The space western is famous for its characters (as well as the music and action), and coming to you directly from KotoUS.com is an exclusive version of the bounty hunter and former Red Dragon Syndicate hitman: SPIKE SPIEGEL DX VER.! The stylish and cool anti-hero looks like he stepped right out of the anime and is portrayed in a casual pose leaning up against a brick wall. Spike wears his traditional outfit consisting of a blue suit and shoes, yellow shirt, black tie, and gray overcoat. The bounty hunter rests against the low, broken wall while balancing on one foot, the other tucked beneath him. He even turns to give you a sly smile as though to distract from the fact that he’s holding his pistol at the ready! Spiegel’s clothing looks great with realistic folds, creases, and details including his open collar and loosened tie.
Remove Spike’s coat to give him an even more relaxed look, exchange his pistol with a rose, swap out facial expressions for a smile or a scowl, or use the alternate arm to capture Spiegel smoking a cigarette.”
The figurine can be preordered from other sites, such as AmiAmi, so choose whichever you’re most comfortable with if you do decide to pick him up. He will be officially released in June 2017.
