"Phoenix," is a fictional character originated from the manga with the same name "Phoenix" written by Osamu Tezuka in the 1970s. Tezuka considered Phoenix his "life's work"; it consists of 12 books, each of which tells a separate, self-contained story and takes place in a different era. Each story generally involves a search for immortality, embodied by the blood of Phoenix, an eponymous bird of fire, which, as drawn by Tezuka, resembles a peacock. The blood is believed to grant eternal life, but immortality in Phoenix is either unobtainable or a terrible curse, whereas Buddhist-style reincarnation is presented as the natural path of life. "Phoenix" is 3" tall PVC figure and comes in a clear box. The figure has a swivel joint located at the neck.
