Inspired by the classic Yakuza aesthetic, Brandt Peters and Ferg's "TroubleBoys No.7 [Drifter]" â which I suspect was at least partially inspired by the 1966 classic Toyko Drifter â has been produced by Playge and will be released today exclusively through Japanese retailer Tomenosuke. Standing at six-inches-tall, this highly detailed ABS figure features a wonderful irezumi (full-body tattoo) and milky white 'dead' right eye. Per usual, the piece comes with an assortment of finely crafted accessories: real cloth suit, tie, eye patch, sMAC 10 x 2, Katana, eye-lens assortment, 2.0 and classic arms and a removable helmet.
"TroubleBoys No.7 [Drifter]" will be available at Midnight Japan time, which converts to 11AM New York time, today (June 16th). The 150 copy run of figures will be available at this link for $150 each: http://tomesyoten.exblog.jp/17901233/.
