SDCC 2011: Kotobukiya’s Yoshimitsu Statue from Tekken

One of Kotobukiya’s biggest surprises at San Diego Comic Con was quite large in size as well – it took up an entire display case for itself! Yoshimitsu from the Tekken line of video games was shown off in statue form as the newest addition to Kotobukiya’s fine art statue line sculpted by Takeya Takayuki. Yoshimitsu was shown off in two different statues, one, the painted one, to show off his color scheme and paint detail, and another, unpainted, to show off the actual final sculpt, which is much more detailed. Yoshimitsu here is sporting his Tekken Tag Tournament 2 outfit much like Christie in the bishoujo line and really looks quite great. The amount of detail in the sculpt is quite amazing and I can’t wait to see the final painted figure as he is most certainly a must own. Yoshimitsu currently has no price and is slated for a 2nd quarter 2012 release and be sure to stay tuned to Plastikitty for more on his release in the coming months.
