    A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Kotobukiya is proud to combine a classic manga and anime property with a hot new statue format: YuYu Hakusho and the ARTFX J! Created in 1990, the original YuYu Hakusho series ran for years and was then adapted to anime, telling the tales of a student who is brought back from death to serve as an "Underworld Detective" fighting supernatural crime. Now, the great characters from YuYu Hakusho are coming to you in the ARTFX J Series, a bold new expansion designed "to bring classic Japanese characters to their fans worldwide." First up is the fiery demon born to an Ice Maiden, HIEI! The warrior and swordsman stands in a relaxed martial arts pose, his right arm extended as he focuses his supernatural energies. He wears a black and white fighting outfit complete with boots and wide multi-layered belt, while a white strap wraps around his left hand. Hiei's demonic heritage is apparent in his red eyes and jet black hair with white fringe, and you can display him with either of two included faces with or without the evil "Jagan" eye. He also comes with alternate arms, one with the black dragon tattoo and the other with the black dragon itself curled around it! Sculpted by Hideaki Kiyohara, Hiei stands 8 inches tall (1/8 scale) and goes perfectly with the other new YuYu Hakusho release Kurama.
