Ikkitousen D.D. SMC Kanu Unchou - New, In Stock

Japanese manufacturer Toys Works brings Kanu Unchou back to her roots as a woman-warrior who's decked out in traditional woman-warrior garb. Y'know, the kind of warrior garb that reveals bosoms in a flattering manner.

Recent toy renditions from various manufacturers have turned Kanu into a cat girl, a swimsuit model, and other tangents that strayed far from her original persona. Toys Works brings Kanu full circle to the incarnation that started her meteoric rise in the Japanese toy marketplace. The new Kanu measures 20cm or 7.87" tall and is fixed pose. She lifts her right leg in a sort of crane-style pose while a shred of what might be described as a dress shifts to the side to reveal her skivvies.

The Kanu figure is mounted on a circular pedestal and may be armed with the
Blue Dragon Crescent spear that's included in the packaging. Preorders will ship today and new orders are welcome to ship this afternoon. Due to the size of the figure and packaging, NCS recommends only shipping by UPS Ground within the United States.
