Following on from the great success of the Boom! Series 2 Rei release comes, Yojimbo

I don't have the full back story of this release, but below is taken from AX2....

I shall killeth those who dareth toucheth mineth mast'r!
by Shusuke/ Yojimbo from the tribe of Saru

Yojimbo is my job. The members of Inu teased me, saying what I do is reminiscent of a watchdog that guards the entrance of Saru, but I pay them no heed. My life belongs to my mast'r. A grateful dog is no doubt far nobler than those crude, thankless goshi.

Additional Info:
YOJIMBO means bodyguards, the job is usually taken by the more destitute rank of Samurai, such as the Ronin. Yet the attire of a Saru sergeant ought to be glamorous, so even a mere bodyguard's garments would appear more extravagant than that of usual corporals. The Saru people do not tolerate any dishevelment in clothing- a set of elegant, organized attire represents the frontage of the entire Saru clan.

GOSHI means the lowest rank of samurai

The 1/6 Yojimbo Collectible Figurine specially features:

Limited to 400 units worldwide
-A headsculpt of Yojimbo Shusuke
-A Saru Mask
-A Yojimbo Outfit
-Three (3) interchangeable Palms
-Two (2) pair of palms for holding tools
-One (1) relaxed palm
-Weapon pack: 2 samurai swords with one sheath & 2 kunai knives

-Creative Director: AF
-Package Designer: ACE
-Illustration: Eduard Visan
-Sculptor: PKKING
-Costume: KC

Patrick Wong's MPC60 resin figure!


"The Akai MPC60 is so iconic, it made the perfect jump-off point for this series. I want to make a genealogy of samplers from the late 80s to 2000s such as the SP1200 and Maschine, marking an evolution of both in technology and music. So much of the music I grew up with was produced on these machines and that why I have dubbed the series: The machines that made a sound of a generation."
Shipping on Friday (March 14th) is this Patrick Wong, 3" figure resin titled "MPC60" (after the legendary sampling drum machine of the same name). Priced at $35 plus shipping, they are limited to 30 pieces and come with a numbered card. This is the first release in a series of beat machines, which aims to highlight the classic Roger Linn designed Akai MPC60 12bit sampling drum machine first released in 1988.
