Perched atop a curious tree along a dusty road sits an enigmatic figure draped in green Sengoku (Warring States) period clothing, beckoning travelers to partake in a simple game of wits.
Though masquerading as a seemingly innocent peddler with his Gyosho Bako (peddler’s chest) full of wares - if one were to peer within the intricately carved wooden box - they will find, to their abject horror, various assassination tools. Seen holding on to a Shakujo (a pilgrim’s staff), The Riddler is accompanied by a little red fox hiding diminutively beneath a tree branch.
Forming part of a crime syndicate associated with the Penguin Daimyo and The Joker Orochi, with an eye on recruiting unsuspecting common folk into doing their evil bidding, The Riddler lures them with untold rewards should they manage to beat him in a game of Go, played on a Goban (Go board) that’s been built into the top of the Gyosho Bako. After all, a man with an adorned Jingasa (war hat), albeit with a questionable crest, ought to be of noble bearings.
Manipulated into gambling their life away, The Riddler gives desperate victims a way out of their predicament by offering them a riddle. If they manage to solve it, they are free to go. If they fail, a simple choice is given. Execute nefarious plans for the syndicate… Or die.
Alas, this is but another cruel trick they would fall for, as only one person has ever been known to solve any of these dastardly riddles.
This statue comes with 3 head switch-outs, a classic nod with The Riddler wearing a bowler’s hat, one with him wearing a traditional Japanese Jingasa and one with a full-face mask. He comes with 2 left-arm switch-outs, 1 holding on to a traditional scroll bearing the words リドラーの謎 (Riddler’s mystery) and 1 holding on to a traditional fan. He also has 2 right-arm switch-outs, 1 holding on to a Shakujo staff and 1 holding on to a GO tile.
This depiction of The Riddler draws reference from Bakuto (gambler) syndicates that were occasionally hired by local authorities and tyrants to gamble with commoners to win back their workers’ earnings or to rope them into nefarious dealings. These syndicates were a precursor to modern day yakuza.

This item is a Pre-Order! That means it is still in production and we do not yet know delivery costs. Delivery costs will not be shown in shopping cart or orders until the item is ready to ship.

***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.
Because this item still in 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 for shipping. 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!
