Bruno Bucciarati may no longer be a member of the land of the living in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, but you can still celebrate the man, the myth, and the legend with this upcoming Nendoroid. The wielder of the Zipper Man, or Sticky Fingaz in the original Japanese broadcast, is one of the main reasons that Giorno Giovanna is going to potentially reach his goal of overtaking the Italian mob, Passione, from the clutches of the King Crimson wielding Diavolo. While pre-orders are currently open for the Nendoroid, don't expect this little guy to be shown the light of day officially until January of next year, 2020.
Crunchyroll displayed brand new looks at the Nendoroid, along with Twitter User AitaiKuji, doing justice to the fallen warrior and cleverly incorporating the Zipper Man and his abilities into this tiny re-imaging of Bucciarati!

Bucciarati could be considered by a lot of JoJo fans to be the actual protagonist of the fifth season, Golden Wind, considering both the amount of screen time he receives and the significance of his actions along the way. Though he first appears as a a villain to Giorno, pitting his Zipper Man against Golden Wind, the two dsicover that they hold a lot more in common with each other than they had originally thought and join forces to attempt to claim the Passione mob as their own.
Along the way in this fifth season, Bruno introduces Giorno to his posse and the band of Stand wielders encounter a cornucopia of villains wielding ethereal beings of their own. Bruno's powers come in handy multiple times, with Zipper Man having the ability to tear portals in reality and even use his strange quirks to disconnect limbs from both opponents and friends, whatever situation deems it necessary.
