By now, you probably know that the inciting incident for Jujutsu Kaisen comes when protagonist Yuji Itadori eats one of the undisputed ‘King of Curses’ Ryomen Sukuna’s fingers. If you didn’t, then you’ve just been spoiled on the end of episode 1 of the upcoming TV anime, but fans in the know will no doubt have a chuckle when I say this: thanks to Tamashii Nations’ latest line of Jujutsu Kaisen products, you can do this for real.
Unveiled today via the official Tamashii Nations website, PROPLICA have produced a 1/1 scale replica of Ryomen Sukuna’s finger. It’s as shrivelled and as gnarly as it appears in the series, so it really does allow you to act out this inciting incident in real life – although, for legal reasons, we are supposed to say that you shouldn’t do this. You’ll probably choke or get chemical poisining, or both.
The second part of Tamashii Nations’ line-up of Jujutsu Kaisen products is a little more straightforward. That’s right, Yuji Itadori will be getting his own poseable S.H. Figuarts figure – a favorite of anyone who enjoys creating their own poses and action shots.
Obviously, instead of swallowing Sukuna’s finger yourself, you could try and get the Yuji Itadori S.H. Figuarts figure to do it. Yet, his mouth does not appear to open, and the size difference is quite distinct.
All joking aside, these Jujutsu Kaisen offerings from Tamashii Nations are seriously cool. Having one of Sukuna’s fingers lying around would be a great conversation starter, as well as a more unique way to express your love for the series. The Yuji Itadori S.H. Figuarts figure, on the other hand, offers a wide degree of freedom in terms of acting out some of the most badass moments from the series.
What’s more, it is quite unusual for a series to get goods and apparel such as these this early in the game. The Jujutsu Kaisen anime hasn’t even aired yet, and this figure and replica have already been announced – one can only imagine what sort of other merchandise awaits down the line. Here’s hoping that some other cursed items, such as the Slaughter Demon, get the replica treatment.
More information on Tamashii Nations’ line of Jujutsu Kaisen products will be revealed at the end of November.
