I'd think it should be $5@most but Japan will price many anime items at more than what maybe they look like they'd be worth. Their going to pay almost $14.75 for a block-style figure (the term for Lego minifigures and similar toys) when you could get a small Lego set for that price.

Wait, so there was actual genuine product promotion hidden amongst that craziness? Respect team Dandy, respect.

I'm sure Lego sets & this Space Dandy be@rbrick toy has the same wide appeal.

Full-tilt half-assedness. Precise malarkey. Frantic relaxation. Serious cacodemons.

...and Triangle Dandy. Man, what the @#$% was up with that thing.

They're not figmas, but these two came up on AmiAmi recently with interchangeable parts:

As interesting an idea, I must resist to protest their lack of gumption. Sure, they wouldn't really carry-through with the ending, and I would've at least hoped they made it through the following opening. However, they didn't even continue into the preview, just because they were using actual footage.

I like the Honey one, very well sculpted and with the added nipply touch.
