Revoltech Takeya Series No.001 Tamonten リボルテックタケヤ 第一弾 多聞天

Part of the Revoltech series, these are the brainchild of Takayuki Takeya (and, well, Buddhism) who is quite a prolific sculptor of everything from garage kits to things like tokusatsu/sfx.

Tamonten, also known as Bishamonten, is one of the guardians of the Buddha and Buddhist sacred teaching grounds as well as one of the Seven Gods of Good Luck (Shichifukujin).

These are being rereleased in monochrome versions so as to match the real statues around Buddhist temples in Japan.
