Since male otaku tend to be the ones buying figures and that sort of merchandise, most anime figures are, naturally, of female anime characters, mechs, monsters, or sentai characters. Male anime characters just tend not to get the figure lovin' they deserve, relegated at best to being part of a gashapon or other trading figure set, most of the time.

But every once in a while...

Tomopop pointed me to this gorgeous figure from Square Enix, who has done some very nice figures of its video game heroes in the past. It's of Sasaki Kojiro from Vagabaond, and while I'm not totally sold on the hair, I love it in pretty much every other way. The design, pose, and clothing are all absolutely gorgeous. I particularly love his haori (Is it a haori if it doesn't have sleeves?), with the flowers along one side and the back. I also love the way his kimono almost looks like it was sculpted out of jade or something. In other words, it's awesome.
Of course, you'll pay a pretty penny for this attractive rarity: it's coming out in September with a price tag of ¥19,950-- about $206 USD.  But man, if I had that kind of money to play with, it'd be worth it...

I wish I had that kind of money to throw around. It's a nice figure.

It will be mine!  Somehow, someday, it will be mine.

I am not a figure collector but this is just absolutely gorgeous.  I might just have to save up to buy this.

You're correct Gia, it's a haori.

That's pretty awesome... I'm seriously tempted, but I still need to get Aozaki Aoko first.

@HeeroYuy: Oh good! I wanted to look it up but I was about to rush out the door @_@;
