Ryu Ga Gotoku 2 Kiryu Kazuma Lighting Figure - Preorder

Kiryu Kazuma isn't a messianic comic book hero nor is he a super-powered wunderkind out to save the world. He's just muscle. A battle-hardened Yakuza street enforcer who's tactics are brutal. NCS wouldn't go so far as to ascribe the title of "anti-hero" to Kiryu since he has redeeming qualities and a heart of gold when the occasion calls. Maybe we'll coin the term "semi-hero."

Kiryu's broad shoulders have carried three commercially successful games for the House of Sega but toys have been lacking. That changes this summer when Sega Toys releases the Ryu Ga Gotoku 2 Kiryu Kazuma Lighting Figure which features a shirtless gangster who stands on a lit pedestal. The lighting is for dramatic effect. Three weapons are included with the figure for a menacing effect. Preorders ship in late July 2008.
