"What did the guy inside my head say?" – Caiman
Prime 1 Studio is overjoyed to present the coolest, edgiest addition to the Ultimate Premium Masterline Series: The 1/4 Scale Caiman and Nikaido from DOROHEDORO!
Set in the brutalist, industrial megacity of The Hole, Dorohedoro is a romantic tale of a boy meeting a girl—HELL, NO, IT’S NOT!
Dorohedoro is a pulse-pounding, magic-splattered, rust-engulfed, rock-opera of an anime. It features our protagonist, who looks like a lizard. He doesn’t know how because he has industrial-grade amnesia. His name is Caiman, only because his best friend, Nikaido gave him that name. And it is this friendship that is at play in Prime 1 Studio’s newest, phenomenal anime statue.
At over 28 inches tall, Caiman & Nikaido share a plate of their favorite food: gyoza! Or rather, Caiman’s favorite food because Nikaido is the one who makes them. He’s already finished one plate and it looks like he’s ready for more. And Nikaido is more than happy to make gyoza for Caiman. In the dark, decaying world of The Hole, these two have cultivated a bond that will be tested by the forces of Hell.
Prime 1 Studio has really knocked this one out of the park! The energy and emotion that permeate this piece is truly outstanding. Only to be matched by the fine texturing and detailing every inch of this piece has. This statue looks like it was yanked right out of the anime, with its vibrant colors and incredible details. Each and every spike coming out of Caiman’s head is expertly sculpted, as is his repitilian face, which is expressing pure joy at his lunchtime activity. Caiman’s outfit is sculpted with the accuracy of a surgeon, as each piece of clothing shows off its appropriate texture. The jacket, gloves and boots are properly leathery, his hood has a heavy canvas-like texture, his pants possess a dense, utilitarian weave.
Nikaido is equally stunning in her sunny expression, exquisitely accurate to the show. Her outfit boasts heavy-duty, canvas overalls displayed in anime-accurate style for her comfort, complete with metal kneepads and asskicking high tops for...well, ass-kicking!
We’ve situated Caiman & Nikaido on a terrific, descriptive base that is brimming with Easter eggs from the show. Take a 360-degree look and you will find something new everytime. For instance, Caiman seems to be his rough, over-energized self, as he drops one gyoza which looks headed for certain doom...only to be saved by...The Gyoza Fairy! Furthermore, one can envision Caiman and Nikaido hanging out in front of Nikaido’s gyoza joint, The Hungry Bug, the restaurant she took over as her own business. The base also features Caiman’s severed head in a formalin jar among other quaint and cool surpises for you to discover. Just look around the base to see other Dorohedoro-themed clues and homages.
Dorohedoro fans will no doubt be delighted to own this singularly, spectacular piece when it goes on preorder, so don’t hesitate! Get it before the Magic Users get you!
