“That’s my Shinobi Way”

The Story: Naruto is a Japanese Manga series that follows a young ninja who seeks to gain respect from his peers and someday become the leader of his village. The English adaptation was released in 2005 on Cartoon Network and ran until 2009. Now The English adaption after restarting from episode one began again in 2014 and still airs weekly on Adult Swim.

What’s in the Box:  Alternate hands, knife, and chakra effect.

The Verdict: Overall this figure was a nice surprise. Articulation was great my only complaint with the articulation was the lack of chest bend. Although even with the lack of chest articulation, posing this figure was pretty painless and I was able to get some great action shots, and the legs, as well as the arms, were very mobile. Attention to details was great from the uniform to the markings on his face he was pretty spot on to the anime version. The figure can take kids play. This figure is great for both kids and collectors alike. At the cost of 19.99, this will make a great addition to the collection. Two other figures in series 1 include Sasuke and Kakashi.  Thank You Bandai America for letting us review this great figure.
