Yoshimitsu may be one of the stars of Tekken (and Soulcalibur!), but he's not exactly a household name. Which should make Kotobukiya's decision to make a big, expensive statue of him seem silly.

That is, until you see it. Wearing his Tekken Tag Tournament 2 outfit, the detail in the figure and "gore" on the base are pretty crazy.

While he was first shown off at Comic-Con earlier in the year, this is the first time we've got a real good look at the final sculpt.

He should be out sometime next year.
