The 5th scale figure to join my collection is Youko Kurama from Yu Yu Hakusho. Kurama was always my favorite character when I was younger but once I was Youko Kurama, he quickly surpassed Kurama as my favorite. Haha.
I’ve seen him for sale at a con with a RED Pierrot sticker…mines is blue. I don’t believe he is a bootleg buuuuut…I think he may be a defect for reasons you’ll see later on in this post. If anyone has any info on the different colored stickers, PLEASE let me know. It’l put my collectors mind at ease.
LOOK AT THAT FINGER. THAT POOR BENT, UPTURNED FINGER. *cries* His finger is supposed to be straight but as you can see in this picture and the one below, it’s somehow been warped. I have no idea of the previous owner did it or if it arrived to them like that from Kotobukiya because…DAT SEAMLINE. like….sdjfhiwqrptviqweirotc;itru ugh. But I guess it adds a bit of realism depending on what angle you look at him at cause…no one can hold their fingers truly straight…right? ….RIGHT!? ;-; Anyway, let’s be positive again. XD He has a very lovely base.
