The new hit anime/manga combo Dr. Stone, finally has its first toy announced by Banpresto. The figure is of the ‘doctor’ himself, Senku Ishigami, and this static statue (or should we say, petrified?) figure stands tall at 7.5 inches.
The premise of Dr. Stone is science driven and fantastical, if not way more aged down than one would expect. Seriously, I love the show, but it’s soooo for babies. Baby’s first science anime in disguise. Don’t believe me? Look how carefully love and friendship are awkwardly portrayed. You’ll see what I’m talking about.
Senku will be released by Banpresto in June 2020. He costs $21.99 (that’s actually a fantastic deal) and can be preordered today directly from Crunchyroll.
