Furyo Yuske is specifically made to celebrate AX2 very first appearance at Thailand Toy Expo 2014, and demonstrate their appreciation to the fans in Thailand. This unique figure of Furyo Yuske is a fully handcrafted collectible figure, therefore it is not as playable and exquisite as a mass production item.
Furthermore, AX2 have acknowledged that some of the items could have defects due to shipment to Thailand, mostly being disconnected parts and should be easily fixed by simply putting them back together.
Available exclusively at Thailand Toy Expo (May 1-4 @ Central World, Bangkok) was this AX2 Studio's FURYO YUSKE in 1/6 scale. Limited to 50 pieces each and priced at 6000 baht (approximately US$186), this exclusive came with a limited bag only for Thailand Toy Expo. Item was limited to 1 piece per person.

The box is very basic and simple. Imagine a shoebox. Now put the figure and accessories inside. Secure the figure with some twisty ties and put the accessories into zip-lock bags. Add some foam as packing material to keep the figure from being knocked about during shipment. Cover the box with a lid and voila, exclusive item for toy expo all ready to be sold.
AX2 1/6 scale Taketa High Furyo Yuske 12-inch figure straight out of the box. Furyo Yuske appears be wearing what looks like the Japanese high school uniform with the school badge embroidered on the right hand chest part of his gray jacket. The uniform / outfit consists of a white tank top / vest, gray jacket and pants with white belt and shoes. Check out the turnaround views of this 2014 Thailand Toy Expo Exclusive figure.
The AX2 INU and SARU Series is about two rivaling samurai families - the tribe of Inu and the tribe of Saru, having been at war with each other for the longest period of time, for both parties are determined to conquer the world. Before Furyo Yuske appeared at the 2014 Thailand Toy Expo as an Exclusive figure, AX2 Studio had already previewed their Inu and Saru series 1/6 scale Yojimbo Shusuke 12-inch action figure (pictures HERE)
Close-up pictures of AX2 2014 Thailand Toy Expo Exclusive – 1/6 scale Taketa High Furyo Yuske 12-inch figure. The joints are rather loose and as AX2 themselves have already pre-warned "This unique figure of Furyo Yuske is a fully handcrafted collectible figure, therefore it is not as playable (pose-able) and exquisite as a mass production item."
Close-up views / shots of the AX2 1/6 scale Furyo Yuske head sculpt which is very anime / manga inspired. After the successful debut of AX2 "BOOM!" #2 Rei 12-inch figure (reviewed earlier in my toy blog HERE, HERE and HERE), AX2 has decided to release more 12-inch figures into the market, this being their second figure before we see Yojimbo Shusuke down the line.
The 1/6 scale accessories that are included with this AX2 2014 Thailand Toy Expo Exclusive Taketa High Furyo Yuske 12-inch figure: one cross shoulder brown leather sling bag, double swords with one sheath, hand carry black leather bag, additional palm / hand and a white mask.
The mask seems to have monkey origins. "Saru" is the Japanese word for monkey.
