Hong Kong based figure maker HobbyFigures has sent us a press release earlier yesterday morning regarding their newest figure, a 1/8 scale cold cast Jin from the series Samurai Champloo.
HobbyFigures appeared last year with their debut figure Mugen also from the same series; however, the figure itself never saw an offcial public release due to quality control issues. Apparently the company will be releasing Mugen along with Jin at the same time.
Jin will be limited to 2000 pieces worldwide retailiing at $149 with a release date of January 1, 2009.
HobbyFigures is also still working on Fuu from the same series, and Risty from Queens Blade. We'll let you know when we receive pictures of them.
Lots of pictures of Jin after the jump.
