Usagi Yojimbo miniatures?

Hey all!

Okay, an odd request this time!

I am not sure how many folks here know of the comic book "Usagi Yojimbo"... It is a fantastic comic book out of Japan that follows a rabbit samurai through feudal Japan. "Maus"-style, the humans are replaced by animals, but in a human world.

It is a FANTASTIC series, steeped in feudal Japanese history, which I doubly enjoy after taking a few classes on the subject in undergrad... and I always wanted to paint up a set of Usagi miniatures and maybe even create a little skirmish game!

So I wanted to ask; does anyone here know of any Usagi Yojimbo miniatures out there?

You might want to check out

Thanks, yes I did see those... however, as you noted, they are no longer available! Such a shame... I feel like a good Usagi set of figures would be AWESOME... talk about a skirmish game! said...

i actually just saw one in a gaming shop this past week for $5. unfortunately, said shop is about 5 hours away from me.
