The Boy And The Beast Statues from Medicos Are Expected To Release Later This Year
Japanese manufacturer Medicos has decided to make three new The Boy And The Beast statues, based on the animated film. If you’re unfamiliar with The Boy And The Beast, it’s an animated action adventure fantasy animated film from 2015 that won the Animation of the Year prize during most recent Awards of the Japanese Academy. The three statues will be made to depict Kyuta, Ichirohiko, and Kumatetsu, as seen in the movie.
Details on The Boy And The Beast Statues
All three statues will be made out of high-quality polyresin. Kyuta and Ichirohiko will be 9 inches tall (~23 cm), while Komatetsu will be made to be 11.5 inches tall (~29 cm). The statues will be finely sculpted and painted, being detailed to recreate every part of the character as seen in the movie, while also maintaining a certain minimalism. Kyuta and Ichirohike are expected to weigh 2.8 pounds (1.2 kg), while Komatetsu will weigh it at a weightier 4.2 pounds (1.9 kg).
All three are up for pre-order on the Big Bad Toy Store, with an estimated release date set sometime in October 2016. One of the more interesting aspects of them is definitely the price, with each of The Boy and The Beast statues, Kyuta, Ichirohiko, and Komatetsu, being listed at $374.99. That’s not cheap, and may prove to be too much for most fans. The statues definitely look to be very high-quality and would be a great addition to any collection, especially an anime themed one. But pulling together almost $1200 for all three would be a pretty tall order. That said, Medicos has released other figures, such as those based on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (their most famous officially licensed line of figures) and Tokyo Ghoul that, while not as pricey, were high-quality and well-received.
