Definitely have to get into collecting some of these figures. I did order about 14 volumes of JoJo's from RightStuf after you mentioned Viz putting it back in print.

When is part III supposed to air anyway? Fall or Winter season?

Well that makes me super excited to know JoJo's is getting a reprint. I managed to get almost all of it at Vintage Stock recently and am only missing some of the volumes so this is a happy moment. (Now someone license the anime and give me a dub so I won't get nauseous trying to read subtitles with all the flashy color changing and dramatic angles that happened all the time!) As for the figure, this one's been tempting me for a while now. It looks absolutely gorgeous and I'm a sucker for a pretty face. I think I'm going to get the Dio figure first and collect from there like Joseph and Jotaru and maybe Cars because why wouldn't you want him on your shelves? Wink

Probably neither, David hasn't announced that they're doing another Jojo series. Yet...

Joseph is a nice SAS, I liked that the package included a lot of accessory items like the crackers and crossbow. He's also very easy to pose compared to some other SAS with more restricted movement from their clothing. But I have trouble adjusting his scarf and head sometimes.

Two words: Music rights.

As for the figure: beautiful. Definitely shelf-worthy as Joseph is one of my favorite characters from the Jojo series. Smile

Super Action Statues are really very nice, though I have to say I've gotten a few... less quality-controlled figures. Mainly the first run SAS figures for Part 3, specifically the Jotaro and Star Platinum I got a few years ago. Some of the spare hands had holes too small for the wrist pegs and you don't wanna try to force them on because: A.) You might snap off said peg; or B.) You'll probably want to get that hand off again at some point and then what-- pliers? But as I said that was years ago and all the figures released since that first batch (pretty much all of them from any of the parts besides Pt.3) do not suffer from this.

(I'm always curious if, when they rereleased the part 3 figures, if they fixed the problem I mentioned above but I don't know anyone who took the chance of buying the rereleases.)

P.S. I also have Caesar and...
