Figuarts Zero Aizen Sousuke Hogyokou Fusion Version PVC Figure (try saying that after a few beers).
We have all seen the character grow in the series, but when it comes to the action figures based on the characters, the makers don't always get it right. Maybe they don't watch the anime, maybe they do.
This new figure has the look of what the character is wearing, but when you consider the hair, since when did Aizen go blonde? Was I seriously missing something while I watched the series? Did he go out and get a makeover one episode or what. To be honest, he looks like he's going to do a triple salco on ice.
Usually collectors of such things would proudly display their figures on their stands for all to see - hoping that friends would mention how good they look, but in this one's case having this figure would be nothing more than a guilty pleasure, one you would keep in its box under lock and key like the Orochimaru one where they displayed him complete with his long tongue.
Verdict: If you're into yaoi, it's a guilty pleasure for sure.
