This week’s Funko Friday release is the epic “Distressed” Astro Boy Hikari Sofubi vinyl figure, and I think it’s The Blot’s favorite Astro Boy colorway yet! It fits perfectly with the robotic character. I like to think this is what Osamu Tezuka's iconic Astro Boy (or Mighty Atom as he was originally named) would look like if he were ever decommissioned and spent a few months or even years outside in the elements.
The “Distressed” Astro Boy Hikari vinyl figure stands 6” tall, includes a hand numbered card to prove authenticity and rarity, and comes packaged in a full colored window box for easy display. Limited to just 1,500 pieces, this limited edition figure is scheduled to hit store shelves in May 2015. In the meantime, you can pre-order one now from Entertainment Earth for $79.99 here.
