TT Polls are often times used for suggesting potential licenses that you – the community – might be interested in; sometimes, it can serve a different, more dramatic purpose.
There are special cases wherein the Temptation Thursdays poll is used to safeguard an existing character in production, a statue design, or even an entire license from entering Alex Davis’ Vault due to a lack of support for the idea or product line. This dreaded Vault is a grim and eerie dwelling place, and those in it are never to be laid eyes on or heard from ever again, left to slowly drift away until they become a figment of everyone's imagination, or so we thought.
To help save your favorite character from entering, you will have to rally the troops and prove to Alex that the character on the chopping block is, indeed, worth saving. With enough “YES” votes, Alex will surely reconsider. However, please keep in mind that you and those you recruit should only vote "YES" if you and they have the intention of purchasing. That way, First 4 Figures could accurately gauge the community's overall interest in the product.
TT Poll #54 is aimed at saving KIRYU KAZUMA from entering the Vault. This character is the main protagonist throughout the entire Yakuza video game franchise of Sega. The following images are samples of the physical of the Dragon of Dojima's original design (based on the Yakuza 4 title):
KIRYU KAZUMA (REGULAR)
KIRYU KAZUMA (EXCLUSIVE)
As seen on the cover photo of this blog, First 4 Figures already has 3-D renders for a new and improved version for both the Regular and Exclusive but they couldn't progress any further with this project as they feel that the support for Kiryu Kazuma (and the series as a whole) is quite lackluster. If this TT poll goes south, it may very well be the end of the entire license even before it began.
If you would like to rescue Kiryu Kazuma (and consequentially the entire license as well) from being locked away in the Vault, join the First 4 Figures Official Collectors Club where you may, then, cast your vote HERE. Leave a comment below and let your voices be heard! #SaveF4FYakuza
