Youtooz are once again bringing a beloved anime franchise into their line of vinyl figures, much like they did recently with the God of High School anime and manga. This time around, it is characters from the classic 90’s anime series Cowboy Bebop (a series that is considered a masterpiece by many) that are getting a Youtooz makeover.

The main characters of the anime- Jet Black, Spike Spiegel, Faye Valentine, Ed and Ein– are the ones who are receiving their own figures. Spike has a cool and unique seated position as he lights up a cigarette whilst looking to the sky whilst Jet Black wields an awesome but rather complex looking flamethrower. Faye gets a submachine gun along with a cigar and sunglasses for the ultimate cool girl look (smoking is bad kids) and Ed…well Ed is just Ed but he still looks great in vinyl figure form. Ein the corgi is also getting her very own vinyl doll and honestly that is all I needed to know to be sold on this. She is the goodest girl.
