First 4 Figures Open Pre-orders on Shenmue Ryo Hazuki Statues; Exclusive Variant Available

Comment

Here’s something for Sega fans with First 4 Figures now taking pre-orders on an all-new exclusive Ryo Hazuki statue from the Shenmue series.

There hasn’t been a new Shenmue title since Shenmue II was released on Dreamcast back in 2001, yet the legacy of Shenmue continues with a cult-like following for the series. Perhaps this new line of statues could point to a new title in the future…. we can always dream.

Anyway, back on topic. First 4 Figures will be selling two variants of the Ryo Hazuki sculpt. Designed to be a 1/6 scale and standing at 12 inches tall (approx. 30cm), Ryo is dressed in his trademark brown jacket and light blue jeans, ready for a fight in his battle pose.

Ryo comes with a base designed around the streets of Yokosuka where the Shenmue adventure took place. Only 750 of these will be produced worldwide with each piece individually numbered. Ryo is priced at $169.99 USD with an expected release in Q4 of 2013.

As with many collectibles from First 4 Figures, a variant statue is also available in even more limited quantities. A special release of Ryo standing atop of the legendary Phoenix Mirror will also be produced, however only 350 of these will be made, each piece also numbered.

Due to the rarity, this one will set you back $184.99 USD and is also scheduled for release in the Q4 of 2013.

First 4 Figures have noted that the earlier pre-orders will get the lower numbered piece so order early if this matters to you.
