S.H.Figuarts Naruto Shippuden Naruto Uzumaki

A break from the superheroes. Time for some ninja action with the S.H Figuarts Naruto.

The figure and accessories come neatly packed in a tray. The accessories include three extra interchangeable faces, eleven extra interchangeable hands, the headband ends, a pouch, two kunais and a Rasengan effect.

Naruto has been a wanted figure for me ever since I started watching the series. I had considered getting the Toynami ones but they just looked off. Thankfully I did not as this one is so much better. It's got a very good likeness to how he appears in the anime. Plus there's great articulation and the many interchangeable parts and accessories. The Konoha symbol looks to be sculpted on his headband. They did a very good job of it and it's very well painted. The ends of the headband took some fiddling to get it attached. It can be rotated for action poses. The whirlpool symbols were sculpted on his attire. His clothing has good detail as well. There are many folds and wrinkles in it. The paint apps are superb. The different sections have sharp edges and there's hardly any bleeding. There's also some black shading on the orange areas and on the pouch. Very nice! 

Close-ups of his various faces. There are the neutral, cocky, angry and shouting expressions. To change the face, you slide it out from the bottom of the headband and replace it with the one you want to use. I love the eyes. They were very well painted.



The kunais have a nice dark grey colour to them.

The Rasengan was very well sculpted. I love swirling waves spiralling around. The swirly areas have some snowy shading on them.  

He's got great articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, the shoulders can be turned inwards plus ball and hinge, double jointed elbows, swivel hinge wrists, torso pivot, waist rotation, ball hips on an up down hinge, knee hinge, ankle swivel hinge and pivot, and toe hinge!

Maybe I should have got another figure of him to use as his clone. We'll see.

Comparison shots.

Great figure. I'm happy to only just have Naruto but I'll be tempted to pick up the line should it continue further after Sasuke. Thanks for viewing!
