Hobby Figures Mugen in color!

The kind folks at Hobby Figures hooked us up with some new high-resolution images of their pre-painted Mugen cold cast figure from Samurai Champloo this morning that we’re happy to be able to present below. They also informed us that while not yet described on the official product page, Mugen will ship with magnets embedded in the arm and leg parts for optimum easy assembly. The kit retails in June at 1/8 scale (14.5 cm tall, 26 cm long) and features a sculpt from Takahashi Tsuyoshi (Ichigo Eiga Ippai Sake). Retail price is 12,800 yen, and the kit is a limited run of 2,000 pieces worldwide. High-resolution images below:
