Usagi Action Figures

Postby grusagi » Fri Mar 03, 2017 14:37 +0000

now that we are all hype about the new usagi figures coming out this year, let's look at some of the past usagi and usagi related action figures.
not sure about the correct order they were released, i'm just going to go by the copyright on the back of the card.

usagi copyright 1989 with 19 figures pictured on back of card.

Dear Readers,
I would like to see Dark Horse take Roel's figurines and 3d scan them to make a small set like they did with Groo.
Best wishes to all.

Do you have special versions? The sword handle is silver/gray on all of your figures, but the figure on every package has a blue handle. Has this already been discussed? :?

I think that's just a change they made after photographing, but before mass production. They probably considered painted swords during the prototype and photographing stage, but it ended up being too expensive or impractical once it reached production so they went with unpainted silver swords. I don't like the all silver swords, so am painting mine.
