It's about time someone give basketball related anime some attention after 'Slamdunk' and 'Kuroko no Basket' now enters the court with a bang! The first two seasons of Kuroko no Basket' is really awesome as the story transit from a realism tactical game play to super athletic abilities. Still, the anime brought back good memories of my younger days playing basketball and getting this old butt back to playing the ball game he knows best! It's more maintaining fitness and shedding those love handles of mine.
Basketball player figure ain't really in my collection but seeing this Kuroko Tetsuya PVC figure waiver my will to resist. Especially this tall 26cm PVC figure (stands taller than the box when the legs are fitted to the torso) going at an irresistible price made it even harder to give it a miss. Thank you Banpresto for producing this prepainted Master Star Piece figure, for Crane King UFO catcher prize in Japan I supposed. Great sculpt of the boyish Tetsuya aka Shadow with good details on the face and the hair. Attired in his home ground white Seirin jersey.
Sharp paint job and could literally feel the texture of the basketball Tetsuya is holding. The sport jacket is an optional part so Tetsuya can either go with or without it. The figure is well-balanced so it can actually go without the translucent base that fastened to the ankle. Know what! I actually brought this figure to the basketball court I frequent after my comeback for this outdoor shoot.
