To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the classic anime and manga City Hunter, Ryo Saeba and Kaori Makimura team up and pose for this 1/6 scale statue! Should you like to hire the hitman Ryo for his services and unique skills, just write XYZ on the message board at the train station.
Posed with the iconic Mini Cooper, they're posed on a unique base following what looks like a very explosive—and fun—gun fight. The legendary 100-ton hammer, the bird from the logo sculpted on the sewer manhole, XYZ engraved on the street lamp, and a touch of sex appeal (of course) with a poster from the local peep show!
Ryo casually sitting on the car hood with his jacket flowing in the wind shows just how fearless our hero is. Proudly packing his trusted .357 Magnum, his enemies had better watch out for the City Hunter! Meanwhile, equipped with a rocket launcher and sitting on a box of ammunition, Kaori shows that she is not to be messed with either.
The Mini Cooper is definitely a memorable part of the manga and can be seen here as a third character in itself. Riddled with bullets and a flat tire, such damage tells the story of the scene that just happened. The headlights are equipped with LEDs and make for an amazing light-up feature alongside the street lamp that lights up as well.
As usual with Oniri, the smoke and skin parts were cast in a semi-translucent resin offering a deeper sense of realism, and giving life to the characters.
Supervised by Tsukasa Hojo himself, the interchangeable headsculpts are perfect for another displaying option.
