Last orders, gentlemen

Sega and Numskull Designs have opened pre-orders on a brand new statue, styled after Ryo Hazuki, the denim-rockin’, forklift-drivin’, nose-bustin’ protagonist of iconic RPG series Shenmue.

The statue stands 10 inches in height and depicts Mr. Hazuki during the famous Heartbeats bar fight sequence from the 1999 Sega Dreamcast classic. Poised atop the remnants of a smashed table, Ryo is set to leap into action against the next barrage of layabouts foolish enough to stand in the way of his cross-country quest for vengeance. Amusing placement of a toppled barstool almost makes it look like yer boy is skating into battle. Other details include the famous glass of milk and Hazuki’s iconic bomber jacket

If you’re a Shenmue aficionado and fancy having Ryo rocking up on your mantelpiece, then pre-orders are open now at various retail outlets. Just follow the links from the official Numskull website to the retailer of your choosing. The Shenmue Ryo Hazuki statue retails for just under $108 USD / £90 not including shipping or any potential customs charges. The statue is expected to ship in late-August 2022.

Shenmue I & II is available now on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms. Shenmue III is available on PlayStation and PC.
