Fist of the North Star Faithful Friend Grows Up!
Considered to be one of the greatest anime series of all time, Fist of the North Star set a precedent for the action and martial arts anime to follow. It tells the story of a ruined Earth, filled with deadly toxins, radiated mutants, and death around every corner. Hope comes from the North Star, and the practitioner of Hokuto Shinken, Kenshiro. Martial arts madness ensues as Kenshiro must fight battle after battle to bring light to a world faded into darkness. Now, fans of the series can collect one of their favorite characters with the Fist of the North Star 200X: Bat Deluxe Action Figure.
Imported from Japan, this 7.5"Â tall figure represents Kenshiro's faithful friend Bat as an adult. Sculpted for Kaiyodo by Keu Matsuura, Bat comes with 29 points of articulation, as well as accessories that include a bow gun, cape, and changeable head with cape. Scheduled to ship in July 2005, this is one figure that no fan of Fist of the North Star will want to be without.
