For this week’s Funko Friday release, Funko announced not one but two new Gigantor Hikari vinyl figure colorways! First up is this beautiful (and super limited) “Black and Gold” Gigantor Hikari, which is cast in black soft vinyl and features gold, red, silver and yellow detailing and his trusty jet pack in red. If you’re not familiar with this awesome animated robot, Gigantor is an American adaptation of the classic anime Tetsujin 28-go, a manga by Mitsuteru Yokoyama. What’s crazy about this character is he originally debuted back in 1956 and hit US television screens in 1964.
Hikari, meaning “light”, is a highly collectible line of pop culture figures cast in soft Japanese vinyl (but made in China). Each “Black and Gold” Gigantor Hikari vinyl figure includes a hand numbered card to prove authenticity and rarity, and comes packaged in a full color window box perfect for display. Limited to just 700 pieces, this Hikari vinyl figure is not expected to hit store shelves until May 2015, but you can pre-order one now at Entertainment Earth for $49.99 here.
