SpiceSeed Hokuto no ken

Does anyone know this Japanese manufacturer?
On the license of hokuto no ken have made souther on his throne, souther on his motorized throne, Jagi on his motorcycle.
Soon Raoh on his throne and Shin in the future.
Has anyone checked their statues in person?

Those look pretty sweet, especially Jagi. What scale do you know?

They are under the radar in the international market, but their pieces seem to be selling well. That Jagi is around $2,000 USD.

27 cm tall, 40cm wide with the base. So it's a really small scale like 1:10? Their products in general are really expensive.

Size: Approx. H27cm, Approx. L40cm (including base)
They do not specify any scale.
I prefer Souther
The throne is devised by Tetsuo Hara
1:8 aproximate.
It would be interesting to know if they are very limited editions.
How many pieces of each statue

Not surprised. Except for Prime1, no Japanese maker of high end resin statues is competitive, nor do they care to be. It's too bad that they're nice. I'm not interested in everything being 1/3 scale.

Do you know this manufacturer? Have you seen any of your creations of the world hokuto no ken in person? Much prime 1 but delete messages on their social networks for not commenting like them. If they had made a true kenshiro manga or anime would not be looking for other options. Not to mention the pose and the absence of violence. What does not surprise megatron1?

I'm talking about price point only. Spice Seed and all those small Japanese companies making resin/polystone statues (not PVC), are simply not competitive with Prime1 nor any of the other statue makers. Which is not surprising, since their market is Japan, and that's it. These are probably made in small runs, too. I checked, and indeed Souther and Jagi are both $2k each, retail price. That's nuts. Makes Weta's LOTR retail prices look like a steal.

I'm just not a big enough fan of this property to even buy action figures, much less $2k for a small statue. So, while I'm not 100% sold on P1's Kenshiro, it's a far more realistic option for myself.

What has made prime 1 or tsume art with the license is still little. That there is little variety does not mean that what they have manufactured is the best option. For the scale it has high prices but that they are exhausted is a good symptom. They are faithful figures .Levo entering weeks to book Raoh on the throne and did not appear on the website of the manufacturer and in a matter of seconds appears and is already exhausted. How many copies are made of each piece? Where can you do the pre order? If any Japanese person helps me, I thank you. Thank you very much.

They also make some nice looking Kinnikuman statues as well.
