Oh my god, Kiryu is a rubber duck


The Yakuza collaboration I didn’t even know was an option

I can’t begin to describe the whiplash I experienced today when I learned that not only is there a toy duck version of Yakuza‘s Kazuma Kiryu, he’s just the latest in a long and bewildering line of gaming, movie, and comic book characters — even Tofu! — who have been rubber duck-ified by Tubbz.

RKG Studio shared the news with a head-turning tweet this morning. Love that shot.

Imagine taking a bath with the Dragon of Dojima — now you don’t have to!

While Sega has collaborated with Tubbz before on “cosplaying duck” versions of Shenmue‘s Ryo Hazuki, Jet Set Radio‘s Beat, and a freaky Dr. Eggman that makes me uncomfortable, this is a new direction for the Yakuza series. Obviously, we gotta get Majima up in here too. They complete each other.

The 3.54″ tall Kiryu duck will be available in July 2021 for $15, and pre-orders are open today.
