After progressing and gaining experience for 8 years, TSUME is going back to its roots by offering a new interpretation of the first character that was adapted in HQS by TSUME: Gaara.
Last year, three concepts were submitted to the public's vote. Feelings and passion won over and it is the vision of Gaara protected by the image in sand of its mother which prevailed.
From the moment he was born, Gaara was sentenced by his father to become a weapon for his village, hosting the powers of the Ichibi in his body. This caused the death of his mother and slowly drew a wall of solitude around him.
We are happy today to present this new version of Gaara. A symbolic statue that represents both the hopes of a father and the love of a mother.
Sand sculpture has always been tricky. In order to get as close as possible to the desired texture, real sand was added to the statue. The HQS by TSUME also comes with two bodies for Gaara, one more solemn, the other more dynamic, to let you choose the position that suits you best.
A very discreet shading work was done on Karura's face to keep the shades of the sand while bringing depth to the statue. The burgundy and gray outfit of Gaara stands out against an ocher background that frames the character.
We wanted to make a statue that shows the evolution and passion of TSUME for its work. It's a mission accomplished..
The statue comes with a numbered plate and a certificate of authenticity.
Scale 1/8. Total run of 1800 pieces.

***Many items ships double-boxed!!***
All sixth scale figures and many more items come double-boxed automatically when purchased through Secret Compass! Most other dealers will slap a label right on the cardboard shipper and ship that way with no protection. Secret Compass recognizes the value in your collectible figure and we always double-box the cardboard shipper, which comes fresh out of a master case so it shows no sign of shipping before it ships to you.
This item is still in pre-order and we do not know what the final shipping costs will be.
Because the item in still production, we do not know the final weight or dimensions, or even how many boxes there will be. Therefore, we cannot give you an accurate quote. Actual shipping rates will be determined when the item is in stock, and will be reflected on your final invoice.
The following are reasonable estimates for shipping based on the size/weight of various figures:
1/6 or 1/10 Scale Figures
1/4 Scale (Premium Format Figures)
1/3 Scale (Prime 1)
1/2 Scale (Prime 1, Legendary Scale)
Please note that size can vary greatly between different figures, and the above are only estimates based on figures we have seen in the past.
These estimates are by no means a guarantee of your final shipping cost - your final cost could be less or more!
