The DX stands for deluxe, of course; so, what does that mean?
To paraphrase Good Smile Company’s information page, this Tanjiro figure has a ton of articulation. Clearly, it puts the “action” into action figure.
Or, put another way, the figure’s mechanism allows “for a wide range of articulation in order to create intense combat scenes from the series,” the website states.
The figure Tanjiro can make all sorts of heroic poses — and a few not-so-heroic, comical ones.
To help him make these poses, Tanjiro comes with several interchangeable face plates.
They include the “gallant standard expression” face, a “serious combat face,” a “gentle smiling” face, and the “comical bewildered” face.
If you want Tanjiro to be heroic with a bewildered look on his face, that’s entirely up to you.
Of course, he wouldn’t be complete without his black Nichirin Blade. Combine the sword with the red or blue “effect parts,” and you can recreate the Water Breathing and Hinokami Kagura techniques.
Some cool poses would leave Tanjiro hanging awkwardly in midair. So, they also include an articulated figma stand. With the stand, you can pose Tanjiro leaping into action or making a swooping slash with his sword.
And last but not least, the Tanjiro figure comes with a miniature, shrunk down Nezuko. Although the website doesn’t specifically say, this cute little version of Nezuko looks small enough to fit into a hole or a small box. You’ll have to provide the box yourself.
Good Smile Company will take preorders until Nov. 18.
