When I last took a look at a figure from Jojo's, many of you took the opportunity to clue me in that the products were not in fact a rarity, but as popular as ever. Another chance to prove me wrong has cropped up from Di Molto Bene once more, showing off their upcoming Josuke Higashikata, protagonist of part VIII of the series, JoJolion
Typical Jojo's titles aside, I'm admittedly not too familiar with anything past what the anime has shown off. Josuke looks like your typical series protagonist though, and the all too recognizable art style is definitely intact. I am a bit confused at the old timey sailor's uniform, given the arc's actual setting, but one learns not to expect logic from this kind of series.
In any case, if you're the type to be interested in a figure like this, you probably already know whether or not you'll be picking it up. It's well done, it seems, but I can't imagine it appealing very far outside the fandom, unlike many. He'll be arriving this coming March for around ¥5,800.
