We’ve had the Joumon Kugutu “Enzi” Edition, and even had the chance to review the bad boy which you can check HERE. Today, TAKAYUKI TAKEYA x 1000Toys have started the pre-orders for the BOKKOKU edition of Joumon Kugutu 1/6 scale figure.
Some of you may know that producer 1000toys who’s part of the Sen-ti-nel group, who brought you guys the from the ‘TOA Heavy Industries’ series much sort after “Synthetic Human” who’s known for their high-quality production and finishing. We expect the same quality from Joumon Kugutu Enzi and the new BOKKOKU edition. Takayuki Takeya “Joumon Kugutu” turn to shine and take your soul. Totally different story line compared to the Synthetic Human but we expect the frame and articulation to be well thought out and executed.

The “JOUMON KUGUTU” series is a project by 1000toys to show the world Takayuki Takeya’s original designed characters in the form of 1/6 scale action figures.
The imaginative original design with essence of the ancient Japan Joumon period is converted into a detailed digital sculpt by sculptor Takaboku Busujima.
On top of that, additional touches by Takayuki Takeya himself is added to the 3D-printed prototype for Takeya’s distinct curves and details to the product.
Also, the distinct colour schemes and weathering techniques of Takayuki Takeya were carefully reproduced at the production factory.
A LED unit is housed inside the head and can be turned on for light-up gimmick.(*Batteries required)
Please enjoy the ghastly and intricate sculpt made by combining digital and analogue techniques together.
