Faye Valentine Archive

  • Cowboy Bebop is an anime classic, but it gets sadly little figure attention. Probably because, you know, it’s almost 20 years old. We have had a spurt of figure announcements from it recently though, like Kotobukiya’s lovely Spike! And First 4 Figures told us ages ago we’d be getting some statues from them, and finally here they are. Or here the rough 3D sculpts are for Spike Spiegel, Faye Valentine, and Jet Black. They don’t look… amazing, but usually First 4’s sculpts are pretty polished so I assume this is just a teaser. They have also announced that Ed will be joining the line too! Hopefully with Ein, right? Because I need a 1/4 scale corgi in my life. [via First 4’s Facebook]

But some wishes are just too big, too awesome, too spectacular to ever become reality. And you’re stuck dreaming of something you know very well will never happen, yet we keep doing it anyway. So this is our list of figures that don’t have a chance in hell of seeing the light of day, but hey–we can always dream!
