All-white Sengoku Basara/Devil Kings Revoltechs available

Jan 23 // Joseph Leray

Perhaps in anticipation of the (upcoming?) release of Samurai Basara: Samurai Heroes, for the PlayStation 3 and, oddly enough the Wii, or Battle Heroes, a PSP game in the same vein, Kaiyodo is producing a Power Shop set of Revoltech figures from the series.

Localized (poorly) as Devil Kings, Sengoku Basara are a set of hack-and-slash games that take place in the Sengoku period of Japan, featuring Date Masamune and Sanada Yukimura, two historical samurai tasked with killing the sh*t out of tons of dudes. While Sengoku Basara focused, more or less, on Japanese history, Devil Kings eventually turned into a weird, fantasy story that takes place in Hell.

But, anyway, that's not what this post is about; it's about these awesome Revoltech figs of Yukimura and Masamune. And the real story isn't that they exist -- full color Sengoku Basara figs have been on sale for months now. The real treat are these new all-white colorways that go on sale at the end of the month. As with all Revoltechs, these figures are highly articulated and posable.

Hack-and-slash isn't exactlty my genre of choice -- there aren't enough Firaga spells or shotguns for my tastes -- but these Revoltechs are pretty nice looking. If you're more of a thinking man, Kaiyodo is also offering a Professor Layton Revoltech. If you've got a spare pile of cash laying around, you can buy both.

Or, y'know, buy me one. I particularly like the Date Masamune fig.

Pre-orders are available from Otactute and AmiAmi for about 2,400 yen.
