Yu Yu Hakusho is Not Dead Yet

Check out this amazing new figure(s).



It has been quite some time since I last heard of anything regarding the anime Yu Yu Hakusho, which is just the right moment to release a new figure. Alphamax will be releasing this two set figure piece sometime in June for the insane price of 23,800 yen (around $250). However, it is so detailed and amazing that it is almost worth the price tag, almost. Here we see Yusuke fighting the younger Toguro brother. What I really love about this is Yusuke’s point-blank Reigun, and the detail of it crashing into Toguro’s arm. Now all they have to do is make a Hunter X Hunter version and I’ll be all set.

How is Yusuke staying up?  It doesn't look like he's connected to the rest of the figure.

Awesome. Its good to remember old animes you watched.

That's actually the younger of the Toguro brothers, by the way.
But that figure is totally bad ass.  Wish I had that kind of cash to throw around.

That rocks, Yu Yu Hakusho is one of my favs and the Dark Tournament is the best of the entire series.  
 
Not to be a super nerd or anything, but Im sure that is the Younger Toguro Brother not the Elder.  But due to size, power and the fact the show ended a long time ago its easy to mix it up.

Yu Yu Hakusho is definitely one of my favorites.  Glad to see them to still making something referencing it.

Was always a fan of Yu Yu back to when all I was watching was dub'd shows.

I wish Funimation would get the Movies and OVA's.

@Oneeyedjacks:
Yea, feels kinda odd not hearing characters with the same voices.

@bustajibb: arrgh how could I make that mistake!

@GodLen: 
Its an easy one to make.  I had to check myself to make sure I wasnt wrong. :)

Awesome~ and also perfect timing, since I'm about halfway through my 3rd (or was it 4th?) rerun of Yu Yu Hakusho. As one of the series that I grew up with, it'll always have a place in my heart as well as a really high rewatch factor.

I'm assuming the legs or finger tip or both.

Nice! I'd buy this. Yu Yu Hakusho, ah what an awesome show. Quite possibly one of the best shounen series to ever come out.

One of the classic animes that I can remember watching years ago....sweet figures! I DO WANT NOW!

Man, that dude has muscles... and a spine...
