View Full Version : Tokyo Ghoul

This year's Santa Winter Wonfes/Wonderfest has brought Tokyo Ghoul fans a few presents.




Beyond a few presents, it also shows us that there's the potential for more.


Firstly, Kotobukiya showed off their prototype of the ARTFX J Kaneki Ken (Awakened Ver.)
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/large/264423.jpg?r=1423043934
This actually happened before Wonfes started. I'm not a fan of statues at all. I'm too big of a fan of articulation, so I will probably not get it, but I have to admit it looks really good. Although I am not a fan of the anime's version of the kagune, and by extension, not a fan of this kagune.



Secondly, Medicos brought us the rest of the goodies for Tokyo Ghoul, starting with their Statue Legends series, which will, at this point, include Uta, Touka and Kaneki. Well, actually, it's their subsidiary, Di Molto Bene, but that's just specifics.

Uta has already been shown off. Touka and Kaneki were merely announced.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/Jofuu1423373155.jpeg


Now, the second Tokyo Ghoul series brought to us by Medicos is part of the Super Action Statue (S.A.S.) line, most known for its JoJo's Bizarre Adventure line of articulated figures. As someone who does not personally care for anything non-articulated, these are the most exciting to me, and I hope they deliver.


According to MyFigureCollection, there are currently three that are planned, but obviously if they do well, there is a possibility for more. Those three are Tsukiyama, Kaneki and Juuzou/Suzuya.Tsukiyama was already shown as a prototype here:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Jofuu1423373547.jpeg


And Kaneki was announced with a preview technical drawing (derp, the actual term escapes me for the moment):


http://i.imgur.com/ERNsTQJ.jpg


Now Juuzou I can't confirm, but according to MyFigureCollection, it was announced in Japanese on an advertisement without any pictures whatsoever, much like the Touka and Kaneki Statue Legends were


Now I don't really care much for Tsukiyama myself, and don't find his design that intriguing, I will definitely be going for Juuzou and Kaneki. Kaneki most of all. If I get the two of them, it's logical that I'll get Tsukiyama, too. But I don't personally get excited by him beyond the fact that he's the start to one of the things I've been wanting to see for a while now, and which I was hoping to see at Wonfes (wish granted), an articulated Tokyo Ghoul line.



Now this may not be as relevant, but while I'm at it, this might be important to people who just so happen to like Parasyte/Kiseijuu as well, Medicos has also shown off a Prototype of Shinichi Izumi from Parasyte with Migi, and it's looking, well -- great (http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/Rui-chan1423418359.jpeg), in my opinion. While it doesn't excite me as much as the potential the Tokyo Ghoul line has does, I am certainly happy to see it, and I will certainly order it. It made this Wonfes even more gratifying to me to see that Parasyte love.

Yeah, I'm sure they're not hard to find for your average Sideshow Collector, but I still think there's some use in having a Tokyo Ghoul thread here with pictures of the stuff that has been announced and showcased.


I couldn't be more stoked about finally having articulated stuff for Tokyo Ghoul, or actually, any love at all beyond the occasional keychain or something. Although Medicos is not reserved with their accessories, I doubt Kaneki will come with Kakuja-mode swappable parts, so beyond just Kaneki, I hope there'll be a Kaneki Kakuja-mode Super Action Statue, or at least an extra package with accessories for them, kind of like the Drill Set of Manliness for the SRC Gurren Lagann.

Good to see this perfect series is getting the figures it deserves. The manga is just exceptional in every way. Anime is just decent to me but I still enjoyed the hell out of it anyway I'll be getting every figure released!

Glad to see someone made a thread. Tokyo ghoul is all the hype now it deserves its own thread. Hopefully medicom makes figures down the line. A 1/6th kaneki is all I need. Also will defiantly get that parasyte shinichi to dunces he's based on the manga version.

After Jojo, Tokyo Ghoul is my second fav manga and I was so happy with the WF announcements also because it's from the same companies that do the Jojo products (Medicos/DMB), and Koto that showed before the wonderfull Artfx of Kaneki, can't wait for all of them !

So the ARTFX J figure of Kaneki by Koto went up for order end of the week. Release schedule for September at 11000 yens.

There's also an exclusive version of it with an extra unmasked head, first only limited to Koto Japan store but we can find it in a lot of online stores (KotoUS store got 300 pieces)

Beyond Kaneki, which we're getting (hoping for a Kakuja version as well), I really want an Eto S.A.S. That'd be amazing.

Right!? My only gripe is the choice of kagune design. They chose the anime grilled beef kagune design, while I'm more partial to the centipede legs (not the kakuja tail) design that he showed off in his fight with Shachi. I'll try to find some way to find articulated spider legs or something, so I can swap them out. That'd be sweet.

It's funny. I'm really not a fan of statues. I prefer articulated stuff. Still, though, even I have the urge to get this one. Though looking at the price of the Uta Statue Legend, I think this one will be wallet-destruction level expensive.

And I still want a Kakuja Kaneki S.A.S. That would be amazing. Will be keeping my fingers crossed for that.

Siona
07-28-2015, 03:35 PM
Definetely around 20k yens for that statue of Kaneki.

I also like articulated figures but not sure we will have a Kakuja ver. well not from that company (Medicos/DMB are the same).

Yeah, which is weird because to me, the face sculpt looks a little more like the manga than it does the anime. The difference is slight but...still. I'm sure the paint up will change all of that.

You're right. And Medicos does usually go for manga sculpts over anime - just look at Shinichi. (Parasyte)

The Koto is not really that great, and the exclusive face is just a cheap way to sell a figure for extra bucks. But I guess you can do so if you really feel inclined to.

I'd say check out the Statue Legend Kaneki, and Super Action Statue Kaneki for sure.

Also yeah, the anime is garbage. The manga is great.

Received my Kaneki by Koto, happy with it, the unmasked head is pretty cool without the kagune.

Apparently McFarlane is dabbling back into anime again. At the Toyfair, they announced that they're working on (I think) action figures of Kaneki Ken, Eren Yaeger and Naruto.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/large/392857.jpg?r=1453759075

But yeah, it's McFarlane. I haven't kept up, but I left them behind a long time ago because to me, it always seemed like they were reluctant/unwilling to go along with the times. Paint is usually good, but they're still the type of company to sell statues with two points of articulation and pretend they're figures.

And even when they do try to create figures, they're mad limited.

So nothing that will pry me away from the SAS, which is still definitely my most desired version of Kaneki. But who knows - maybe we'll be surprised. I don't really have my hopes set on that, though.

Anyone who has more recent experience with McFarlane able to give me a little heads-up on how they are doing with their articulated figures nowadays, though? I'd like see what to realistically expect from this.

Something that boggles the mind is that there was only an unpainted prototype of Kaneki physically present, but if the picture behind him is any indication, he was already painted by Medicos. No idea why they wouldn't bring the painted Kaneki to Wonfes.

Kaneki with picture of him painted behind him. Boy does he look amazing:

Juuzou:

Juuzou's accessories:

Statue Legend Kakuja Kaneki:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/Siona1454810265.jpeg

Probably will be a pass. Statue Legend/Di Molto Bene stuff doesn't look nearly as good as Medicos's stuff when it comes to sculpt and painting, which is odd given that they're a subsidiary of Medicos, but whatever. The colours on Kaneki are boring and seem sloppy (while the SAS version looks great). Also, the kakuja tails just look way too boring and plastic for me.

Had they added an interchangeability gimmick with the Statue Legend where the head and tails could be popped off (and they were articulated) to be swapped with the SAS Kaneki (kinda like Max Factory/GSC does with FigFix), I would've bought it instantly, no matter the price, but since that's not the case, it's an easy pass. I love the Kakuja Kaneki design, and I doubt there will be a Super Action Statue Kakuja Kaneki, but this Statue Legend just does not appeal to me, especially not for the likely wallet-destroying price it will go for.

That's not even mentioning the QC errors Di Molto Bene has had for a while now. The Uta came out really sloppy.

Part of me agrees, part of me thinks of Dio and his many knives, and that it's a possibility. As well as the fact that the knives would probably have to be molded and painted separately for ease anyway.

Also, not sure where Siona got the pictures, but there's two better pictures of Kaneki and:

Personally, I really would just like an Eto.

Kaneki and Eto are the ones I truly want.

The ones that would be cool besides those two would be:

1. Takizawa (as a ghoul)
2. Amon (Arata armor)
3. Yoshimura (Kakuja form)

The first one is from re tho. You think they'd go that far?

Well, no idea, really. To really do Eto's kagune justice, they'd also have to do :Re stuff.

It depends on what Medicos plans to do, though. If they just want to get a few of them out and then drop the line, then I don't see them doing :Re.

If they plan to make the Tokyo Ghoul license their new Jojo's Bizarre Adventure license (i.e. do a large amount of figures), then I can easily see them going over to :Re, like they did with their Jojo license, where they made characters of multiple parts.

Yea, I definitely hope these figures sell well enough for them to want to continue the line. Would love to have Ayato, Haise, Arima etc

Agreed. If it becomes their new Jojo line, I'd be ecstatic. And I agree with your desire for Haise. I'd like multiple incarnations of Kaneki, as that'd be both nice and give us more kagune options to swap. I'd also like a kakuja Kaneki Super Action Statue, but I don't think it's gonna happen because there's already gonna be a Statue Legend.

But I really don't like statues, and I think it's kinda underwhelming. Also, Di Molto Bene's quality is really bad in my eyes, especially for the price. Unjustifiable, imo. Medicos's quality is way better, generally.

tokyo ghoul is quite popular now and the most talked about anime of 2014 plus a season 3 or reboot is inevitable since the manga is selling so well in both US and japan. I hope this means a ton of figures from them down the line. Tokyo ghoul in manga form is a masterpiece.
