Announcing: Tokyo Ghoul Kaneki Figure Coming to North America!

Hey Tokyo Ghoul fans! FUNimation is thrilled to offer you a first look at something very exciting from Kotobukiya: a new Tokyo Ghoul figure —  coming to North America!


KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import!  The latest new addition to the ARTFXJ lineup (a bold expansion designed “to bring classic Japanese characters to their fans worldwide”) is the horror manga and anime property Tokyo Ghoul, featuring the story of a young man who’s turned into a half-ghoul and discovers a world he never knew existed.  The first ARTFXJ presentation is the main character in his fully expressed half-ghoul state, KEN KANEKI AWAKENED VER.!


Once a normal university freshman, Ken received the transplant of a ghoul organ which gave him his abilities and alternate form which he shows off here.  The half-ghoul stands on a broken rubble base in a relaxed pose, ready to attack.  Ken wears a tattered gray shirt and white shorts… but that’s just the remains of his human life.  Crawling up his neck and over his face is his horrific ghoul mask complete with eye patch, though his rictus grin and one solid black eye are exposed.  Of course, being awakened means that the half-ghoul’s “kagune” is released; Ken’s takes the form of four thick, tongue-like tentacles protruding from his back and undulating around him!  A highly detailed sculpt and masterful paint applications make the half man/half monster a truly impressive display piece.


Take a look at these gorgeous, never-before-seen images of Ken Kaneki Awakened Ver., below!
