Building on the popularity of their Star Wars Movie Realization line, Tamashii Nations has announced a comic-inspired spinoff line they’re calling Manga Realization.
Marvel superhero Spider-Man kicks off Tamashii’s Manga Realization line reincarnated as Samurai Spider-Man. The 7-inch-tall, hyper-articulated Manga Realization Samurai Spider-Man figure features design elements inspired by feudal Japanese culture down to the included accessories. Samurai Spider-Man’s web-slinging action is reinterpreted to feudal Japanese times thanks to the included kaginawa grappling hook with chain. A samurai sword set and three pairs of interchangeable hands round out the figure’s accompaniments.
The Tamashii Nations Manga Realization Samurai Spider-Man is priced ¥9,504, which is about $85. Like Tamashii’s Star Wars Movie Realization line, we expect to see the Manga Realization line available in the U.S., as its unique nature does not encroach on Marvel’s existing licensing agreement. Look for the Samurai Spider-Man figure to swing into action this Aug.
