Hot Toys Space Pirate CAPTAIN HARLOCK

About Space Pirate Captain Harlock:
Space Pirate Captain Harlock (Uchu Kaizoku Kyaputen Harokku) is a originally manga series written and illustrated by the legendary Leiji Matsumoto in 1977-1979. The series was adapted into an animated television series in 1978 and has since became a classic among sci-fi fans. In 2013, a CG animation film adaptation of the same name directed by Shinji Aramaki has hit theatres. Academy Award winning Director James Cameron have praised this new film as “mythic, epic and visually unprecedented, Harlock will take you to a whole new universe of ideas.”

The story sets in the future, where humanity has achieved a vast starfaring civilization, but is slowly and steadily succumbing to despair, often due to defeat and subjugation by a foreign invader. Rising against the general apathy, Harlock denies defeat and leads an outlaw crew aboard his starship Arcadia to undertake daring raids against Earth's oppressors.

Space Pirate Captain Harlock was a classic manga comics created by the legendary Leiji Matsumoto in the 1970s. The story follows Harlock, an outcast, who turned into a Space Pirate and led a crew aboard his starship Arcadia to rebel against Earth's oppressors. Its popularity has led to the creation of an animation series in the 1980s, and this year the story is being remade as an epic CG film set to hit theaters.
