Sega Saturn Merchandise Weirdness!

Holy fucking cow. I was finally able to buy the Segata Sanshiro action figure for a decent price. It's approximately 30 cm in height (That's 11.8110236 inch for the americans!) and looks really great. His wig is incredibly detailed, very well styled and he's wearing an actual judo suit. I didn't want to open the very cool box, though, so I was not able to pose some fighting stances or place him against a Godzilla doll.


But that's not all. This Segata Sanshiro action figure actually came with an inflatable bop bag! The ones that stand up again everytime you punch them. Why anyone would want to hit Segata Sanshiro is beyond me, but other than that, this bop bag is to the point: Segata would always stand up again!


Since I only need to eat once a day and avoid buying birthday presents for friends, I can save that money up and spend it on things like... this incredible Body Special 264 Puzzle, which I bought as well. It's some sort of a can with a very nice Sega Saturn print (and cutesy japanese girls) on it and it comes with 108 pieces. I am bit worried about that "Panel No. 1" note on the can, because I assume, that there are even more of those puzzles out there? Fuck! I want them all. :(

Just curious, what was the "decent price" for the Segata figure? I'd love to get one myself and want an idea of what to expect to spend.

Rad! Every one needs a Segata figure. I've got a few Resident Evil and Metal Gear figures, but no Segata.

That Segata Sanshiro figure was 4.000 Yen on Yahoo Auctions. That's approx. 42 USD. Plus it had cool stickers and that incredible bop bag with it, so that reduces the prices also a bit. On top of that, though, comes the Shopping Mall Japan fee. That was like... let's see... well you can count an additional 20 USD. Plus the shipping to you of course... -__-;

Well yeah, actually it's fucking expensive. But until now I've only seen even more fucking expensive Segata figures. Heh.
