BANPRESTO are set two release two new realistic figures of Takemichi Hanagaki and Mikey from the anime series Tokyo Revengers in July and August respectively at game centres in Japan.

BANPRESTO is also releasing a collection of nine large-sized Tokyo Revengers towels over the next three weeks. The towels are 82cm x 50cm, so can be used for decoration as well as after you get done out the bath or shower.
