Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Kyojuro Rengoku ARTFX J 1:8 Scale Statue Kyojuro Rengoku, the user of Flame Breathing, is here as a 1:8 scale figure by Kotobukiya. From the anime Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, the Flame Hashira comes to 3D life as he strikes down with his sword in a dynamic attack. The sculpt of the billowing haori he wears seems to be alive with motion, as much care was put into the flutter of fabric for each flame on the haori’s hem. Coupled with the sculpted flames on the base, this is a dramatic item filled with burning intensity. Made of PVC/ABS, it stands roughly 8 1/2-inches tall. Line Kyojuro Rengoku up with the other characters (sold separately) to recreate the world of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba!.
