Gatchaman is one of the most influential animes ever, and the new Ken the Eagle statue from Prime 1 Studio is everything we’ve ever wanted.

Prime 1 Studio has gone deep into the history of anime and picked up a license to produce a Ken the Eagle statue from Science Ninja Team Gatchaman, or Battle of the Planets as it was known in some parts of the world. As someone who remembers when BotP was on the air, and how much my day sucked if I missed it, this statue hits me right in the nostalgia center.
