Demon Slayer is living its best life these days as its sales across the board continue to rocket forward. From the anime to the manga and beyond, fans cannot get enough of Tanjiro. Of course, the anime's recent film put Rengoku up on that list, and one fan's custom Funko of the hero proves why the Flame Hashira is the best.
The piece comes from popcollexcustoms over on Instagram. The artist, who has done a ton of custom Funko Pops, felt it was time to honor Rengoku in light of his role in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - Mugen Train. This is what led to Rengoku's costume piece, and it is leagues better than some of Funko's actual pieces.

As you can see above, the Demon Slayer vinyl is massive as Rengoku is shown with his sword in hand. The Flame Hashira has windswept hair that shows off its fiery orange-red hues. With his eyes wide open, Rengoku is summoning one of his beastly fire bursts, but that isn't all.
Oh no, it's not even close to the end. If you thought this Funko was cool enough as is, then listen to his. It glows in the dark. Yeah, our minds were blown too!
If you like this take on Rengoku, popcollexcustoms is doing a giveaway of a different custom. This one can be found here if you want to check out the giveaway. As for other fans dying for more Funko love, the toy company has announced its own Demon Slayer figures. The big announcement went live in light of Funkoween this week, and the collection includes vinyls of everyone from Rengoku to Tanjiro plus Inosuke and more!
