Oh yes, they will be mine. I love Jojo's Bizarre Adventure so much and I'm so happy to see some toys from that series get featured and get such a glowing review too. You pretty much know your a true Jojo fan when you can still use words like fabulous, vogue, and fierce without a hint of irony to describe something so manly.

The half-hair hat, HANDS IN POCKET POSE? While I'm not a huge JoJo fan, this release reeks of AWESOMENESS. If I read the column correctly, Dio and The World are coming as well? Might be time to clear some shelf space for those two.

I'm always glad to see any review for Jojo and this one just reeked of awesomeness! Wow! The different poses and features of Jotaro look incredible! Shocked

I'm kind of sad that Star Platinum couldn't get such a great release due to a defective peg. If it wasn't for that, this could be the best toy release ever.

Also hoping to see Dio Brando in the future with the World. That guy is too popular to be ignored. Very Happy

And you know something? It shouldn't just be Series 3. I would love to see Series 1 and 2 characters myself. I know I would kill for a Will Anthonio Zeppelli figure myself. Smile

Ah well...Yare Yare Daze

The Dio and The World figures are already out, but they might be tough to find. A re-release (and re-color) of The World figure is coming in April, according to HLJ.

On one hand, owning that Jotaro figure would be insanely badass. On the other hand, I'll have to give a lengthy explanation to everyone who sees it explaining that it is not a Village People figure.

I have the blue repaint of that Jotaro figure plus the Dio one. I wanted to get all the others too since they are awesome, but since I don't have enough money to get them, I'm currently only looking to own the main protagonist and villan of each part, don't think I can also afford to get the stands too, but oh well. Josuke is coming in May, so I'm gonna order that soon Very Happy

Oh, but I am definately getting part 3 ver. Joseph too, since they didn't do SAS figures of the first two parts, at least not yet anyway.

I've got all of the human Jojo figures that have been released so far and they're all great. I particularly like that with the Polnareff figure you can mimick his hand movements to say "I can see your panties", and that with Dio, you get the "turn" sign. All the figures have loads of nice touches and are worth owning. I don't have any of the stand figures but I've never had a problem with the pegs for the rest of them.

wow. I've never read the manga and I don't collect figurines, and yet I still kind of want those. They're just that cool.

How perfect that you have reviewed the very figure (Jotaro) I've been eyeing on eBay for the past month or so! Better yet, you've done absolutely nothing to dissuade me from throwing money at it. Well done! Also helpful was providing a link to a place (HLJ) where I can buy it with assurance that it's not a bootleg. Although, do bootleggers often bother with replicating poseable figures (especially those as highly articulated as this one)? Seems like it'd be too much work for someone out to make a quick buck but then again, what do I know.
