Considering that Ghost In The Shell (GITS) is one the most successful anime films ever made, it is surprising that there isn't a huge amount of merchandise available for it. Fans may have waited a while for these figures, but it was worth the wait.
The Bato figure is probably the best of the bunch as it is a great action figure of what is undoubtedly the best character in GITS. Standing 9cm (3.6") approx. with its base, this figure really is a cut above others of its price range, as it really is a near perfect representation of the character of Bato.
The figure has Bato clad in his trademark white jacket,
futuristic glasses and standing with his gun ready for action. It's all
superbly detailed for a figure of its size and the figure, well, is just Bato!
There really is nothing else to say about the figure itself as it is great, but I did
find the base I bit odd. The base has the industrial waste look that you
would expect from a GITS figure, with its pipes and waste wood on metal,
but it does look as though it should connect to form one big base with the other
figures. Unfortunately, however, it doesn't match with them. There
is nothing particularly wrong with the base in itself, but it does look a bit
odd when placed next to the other figures in the range.
