Bandai Spirits Tekken 8 Collectible Figures Are Up For Preorder

The Mishima saga continues, this time on your collectible toy shelf.


Tekken 8 is a fantastic fighting game, and if you've been wanting to host your own King of the Iron Fist tournament at home, you can do just that without having to spend millions of dollars on travel and accommodation expenses for the world's best fighters. Preorders are now live for the Bandai Spirits SH Figuarts Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima figures, and each one is priced at $80 ahead of their November 30 release.

Each character is based on their standard appearance in Tekken 8, as Jin is sporting his default fighting outfit while Kazuya is dressed to kill with his business attire. These figures typically hit the sweet spot for affordability and detail, but the big draw of SH Figuarts figures is the articulation. You can strike some wild poses with one of these figures, allowing you to perfectly recreate iconic moments from their respective media franchises.

The Kazuya figure, for example, can easily be posed in a fighting stance or in a more action-packed attack mode, and because everything is made from durable plastic, you won't have to worry about the detailed clothing getting damaged when you play around with them. You also get a few extra parts with these figures, as they come with optional heads, extra hands, and a printed backdrop. A figure stand isn't included, but you can usually pick a third-party one up for cheap in case you have a dynamic Tekken 8 diorama in mind.

So far, manufacturer Tamashii Nations has only announced this father-and-son duo for its Tekken 8 line, but with the game having a massive roster, you can likely expect more figures to be added over time.

"Tekken 8's greatest challenge is building on a fighting game experience that has been refined to close to perfection over the course of eight-plus years, without feeling like it retreading old ground or needlessly upending the foundation laid by its predecessor," Jason Fanelli wrote in GameSpot's Tekken 8 review.
