Cowboy Bebop Reissues Spike and Faye Figure Set

Cowboy Bebop fans will be able to collect two bounty hunters at once in MegaHouse's newly reissued figure set.

Collectible manufacturer MegaHouse announced on its official Twitter account that it will be bringing back its scale figures for both Spike Spiegel and Faye Valentine, which will be packaged together in a single set. The 1/8 scale figures are based on the characters' appearances in the classic anime series, with the gun-wielding duo striking a dynamic pose as Spike smokes a cigarette and Faye rocks her favorite set of shades. The set also features the characters' names written on the base, alongside a shattered glass background that displays the show's title and the silhouette of Spike's iconic ship, the Swordfish II. The figures retail together for about $272 USD, with pre-orders opening on Dec. 3. The set is expected to ship sometime around July 2022.

The figures were previously available separately when they were originally released back in 2019. Though the reissued figures appear identical, the set adds the logo and Swordfish symbol to the background. The figures are the latest piece of classic Cowboy Bebop merch to be re-released, as Good Smile Company also recently reissued its 1/48 scale Swordfish II replica, which is currently open for preorders until Jan. 5, 2022. Fans can expect even more new toys, clothing and other merchandise from the series, as anime distributor Funimation recently announced its collaboration with such manufacturers such as Funko, YouTooz and First4Figures to produce new goods based on the classic anime.

Cowboy Bebop is a neo-noir, space western anime series that ran for a single 26-episode season in 1998. Set in the year 2071, the series follows a traveling crew of intergalactic bounty hunters who struggle just as much to make ends meet as they do with confronting their inescapable pasts. In addition to exploring a variety of genres, Cowboy Bebop has also become known for its English voice acting, which many anime fans have lauded as one of the best English dubs in the medium.

The classic anime was recently adapted into a live-action series from Netflix, which stars John Cho as Spike, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black and Daniella Pineda as Faye. Although Netflix's Cowboy Bebop may only be ten episodes long, the show offers new and familiar takes on classic characters as well as plenty of Easter eggs for dedicated fans to find. The show has not yet been confirmed for a second season, but the appearance of a fan-favorite character in the finale, as well as recent comments from John Cho, seem to suggest a follow-up might be in the works.
