ABSOLUTE UNIT of a grail just arrived! Prime 1 Kenshiro 1/4 DXABSOLUTE UNIT of a grail just arrived! Prime 1 Kenshiro 1/4 DXDiary

It's been a while since I've written an article here, but this had to be done. My biggest grail so far, and probably ever, has just arrived home! It was announced for a November release, but they just shipped it way ahead! As a big fan of Fist of the North Star, I absolutely wanted a quality Kenshiro scale figure, and that one seemed to be one of the very few ones that exist, and it's by none other by Prime 1 Studio, one of those companies that make huge polystone and resin statues for a price high enough that I thought I would never be able to get it. In fact, this pre-order was given to me as a birthday gift.

I saw that FedEx was about to deliver it to my appartment at noon today, and I worked pretty close to my home. I rushed outside with one of Uber's electric bikes to reach my place, with the FedEx truck near, about to leave! It was rolling, but I could stop it! The delivery man could then bring the massive box out of the truck and it was a physical activity to bring it to my home which is on the second floor.

Anyway! Have some pics!

Giant box!!! It's like half of my front door in height!

Here it is! It was so big and high I had to use my dining table for pictures and a temporary location for it. At some point, it'll get a more proper home! You can also see ITEM #548722, your average 1/8 scale figure, at the right, for scale! That's to show how of an absolute unit this statue happens to be!

Amazing details on both side statues, that come with the Deluxe version of this statue. There's also another edition without these two for less expensive. These two statues seem to straight-up come from the Hokuto Shinken training grounds where Kenshiro and his adoptive brothers trained. Anyway, very well done!

But this is what makes me the most glad to own this statue, the face! It ended up way better than in the promotional pictures and this disappointment of a picture. It's even closer to the manga now!

His chest and his clothes also happen to be really detailed and faithful to the manga! All the scratches on his shoulder pads, all the folds on his clothes, all four visible scars, all there, and all well done!

Overall, this is my favorite figure by far, of course! This is gonna be a treasure I should keep for as long as I live! I wonder if I could get another Prime 1 statue or similar later in my collecting journey!

Here's one last pic of the whole thing in its full glory and manliness!

Omae wa mou... shindeiru!

Candycanes0210 måneder siden#68075229I think the large base adds weight so that the figure can stand without needing to be propped up like a Figma :pGabCM10 måneder siden#68093134The base has a hole and Kenshiro's left foot is extended a bit from underneath to fit in. That's how he's supported. The bigger base I have is part of the deluxe edition. Here's the other one with a smaller base: ITEM #752723
I saw the normal one , still looks cool . I am sure it will save money and weight . all the best

Talal10 måneder siden#68072232I like the figure , but I hate when it comes with huge base , which only add cost and weight .prime one should solve this issue . Or they should provide figures with simple or deluxe base .

The difference between normal and deluxe editions is indeed the base! I got the deluxe one. Here's the other one: ITEM #752723

Criscokid10 måneder siden#68068546Holy that's huge! I'm guessing 1/3 or 1/2 scale? Congrats!

1/4! It's the base that makes the whole figure this huge! Ken is also a big man. Thanks!
