Max Factory’s Benten Will Take Your Breath Away


Benten is a figure who has taken my breath away from the moment I saw him. It was a risky move on Max Factory’s part, taking on a relatively unknown character… and especially doing an elaborate sculpt for him like this that is sure to create a very high pricetag. But I think once most of us saw him painted, there was no question that the “preorder” button would be hit the second orders opened.

In case there was any doubt in your mind left, Kahotan has a huge and glorious gallery full of oodles of shots of this absolutely perfect figure. Which, just in case you are wondering, is already way ahead on my favorites of 2014 list! Orders open on the 23rd, and while I’m scared to find out the price I really can’t wait.

note: absolutely no transphobic language will be tolerated on Plastikitty, including the word “trap” and any derogatory discussion of gender & sexuality. Keep it respectful, people!
