Teased late last week, First 4 Figures have now put their Jet Set Radio Beat statue up for pre-order. Like their Akria Yuki statue, it appears that Beat does not have an Exclusive Edition variant. The statue measures 14 inches tall, and retails for $229.99, limited to 1,250 pieces and due to release Q2 2015. One cool feature is the addition of LEDs which give the illusion of sparks shooting out from his skates as he grinds a rail.
After the break, read the full product description!
“Better watch that beat comin’ at ya!”
First 4 Figures is proud to unveil the mascot of Sega’s hit game Jet-Set-Radio: Beat!
Beat is a renegade 17-year-old ‘rudie’ from Tokyo-To, and the founder of the gang called the GGs. Using his special magnetically powered in-line skates, Beat is out to tag as much of the city of Tokyo-To as possible with his spray-cans, and to put a stop to the Golden Rhinos gang: a group of assassins operated by the Rokkaku corporation.
Beat is portrayed doing what he does best: Grinding along a beam in Tokyo-To on his special skates, with spray-can in hand, tagging any spot he can. A special faux-grass has also been used in the design to truly bring the environment to life! Cast in high quality polystone and painted by hand, we have worked hard to capture Beat in a look reminiscent of the cel-shaded style that the original Jet Set Radio was praised for. Recreated in 1/6 scale, Beat measures 14 inches tall from the base to his head. LEDs in the sparks flying from Beat’s in-line skates flash and flicker, bringing extra life to the piece!
Comes in deluxe full color packaging, hand numbered base, and includes an Authenticity Card which allows you to purchase the same number of the model next in the SEGA All-Stars series.
Beat is the fourth entry in the SEGA All-Stars series by First 4 Figures. If you have purchased any of the three previous statues (Ryo Hazuki, Akira Yuki or Vyse) and authenticated on our website, you will be entitled to the same number for Beat. Other low numbers are available at a first-come-first-served basis.
Highly limited to 1250 pieces worldwide only.
