My favorite shonen lead, is easily Yugi Mutou. I love this kid, he’s so unnervingly optimistic, but he’s a little more emotionally real then that at that same time. Every time he cried you actually felt something. That’s so different from the B.S. that titles try to drive down your throat nowadays. So here is the only figure I’ll probably ever be able to own of this awesome little guy. Yugi Mutou!
I love his hair soooooo much. It’s shaped kind of like a starfish 🙂 His bangs are wild and fall into his eyes. And speaking of his eyes they are done in the swirly eyed fashion made famous by Nitro+ for the Togainu No Chi merch lines. His eyes are a swirl of red, white, and blue. It’s hypnotically creepy. He has one little fist raised in determination, how cute. His school uniform looks great, as does the little millennium puzzle.
Down at his side he’s holding a Duel Monsters card. Also the base has 1/4 of a smiley face drawn on it. It’s the sign of friendship after all, and you can complete it by matching his base up against Jounouchi, Honda, and Anzu.
I love the spikes on the back of his head, they’re rounded off, which honestly just makes this toy look cuter. He has a clear plastic support base to help keep him from leaning or breaking off of his base.
Seriously you don’t get much cuter than this little guy. If this really is the only figure we’re ever going to get of Yugi, then it’s still enough to make me happy. I love Yugi Mutou chibi with scary eyeballs or otherwise.
