Back in May while watching the brilliant Death Note anime, which has sadly ended, I blogged about how Medicom announced that it would make figures from the series - Light, L and Misa Amane. I was however a bit upset that they didn't make one of the Death God Ryuk and I implored them to do so.
My prayers have quite miraculously been answered!
Sadly though, Ryuk would come in VCD (Vinyl Collectible Doll) format. Although I don't personally own any Medicom VCDs, judging from reviews of Medicom VCD Yoda, I would expect Ryuk to come with very limited articulation. Which sucks because the whole point of Medicom is fantastic articulation, take away that and what you are left with is a seriously overpriced run-of-the-mill plastic toy.
Even without the articulation, I think it is after all still a very good representation of Ryuk in figure form. And according to Toysdaily, Ryuk would be 36cm tall so at least he'll be in scale with the rest of the Death Note gang.
Toysdaily expect Ryuk to ship in February 2008 (what!) and should cost around ¥17,640 (SGD220).
Looks like I'm in for a long long wait.......
