Dark Horse Comics has announced that Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo is getting the fluffy stuffed bunny treatment in May 2010.

This new toy stands fourteen inches tall from his carefully detailed sandals to the tips of his movable ears. Stan Sakai, who provided extensive reference art for the project, oversaw every detail in the design process.

“I have always thought that a doll of this type would be an excellent presentation of Usagi,” Sakai remarked in a prepared statement, “and have been happy to assist as the prototype evolved with commentary and revisions. I think he came out very well indeed.”

It does indeed look dandy, and with the large number of Usagi fans around the world, this might be a product that will go fast.
