From Kotobukiya! Kotobukiya presents a new entry in the ARTFXJ line of statues (a bold new expansion designed "to bring classic Japanese characters to their fans worldwide") based on the popular Japanese sports anime/manga series Prince of Tennis II: RYOMA ECHIZEN! A Seigaku Academy student and master tennis player, Ryoma relaxes before his next match, legs crossed as he reclines with his signature red racket perched over his shoulder and a hand stuck in his pocket. The cocky athlete wears his tennis outfit consisting of white tennis shoes, black shorts, a red and black shirt, and matching jacket (the latter two with "Japan" lettering). Ryoma features a detailed sculpt with special attention devoted to the intricacies of his clothing as well as his wavy hair and character-accurate facial expression. He even comes with a removable cap as well as a bonus mini-cat figure that can be placed anywhere around his feet! Sculpted by Tatsuya Hattori, Ryoma Echizen stands nearly 8 ½ inches tall (1/8 scale) on a special stylish base decorated with the title of the series and Ryoma's name.
