About this deal

I did that for the first two photos below, but I do like the look of the elastic hidden under the upper torso piece better, so that’s what I did for the rest of the pictures in this review. The pack will feature four distinct versions of the Rabbit Ronin with alternative hands, accessories, and weapons.

He's articulated in all the places you might expect—the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, hips, knees, and ankles. Finally, he comes with a cloak, which he used to disguise himself whilst traveling through New York and visiting Channel Six News.I tend to pay more attention to the characters and vehicles than I do with the various gadgets on the show, if we're being totally honest.

Hundreds of collectors have this toy ( 293) in their user collections, so it does seem to be very popular. His Playmates version was sculpted pretty accurately, but they gave his costume way more purple than it needed, and he had this perpetually angry scowl. They're not characters who are addressed very often, despite their regular presence on the show, so it's nice to finally get accurate representations of all of them. Certainly not vital characters to my collection by any stretch of the imagination, but they're cute enough. Remarkably, I didn't have any problems with joints that were frozen or sealed shut with paint, which I think is a first for a NECA figure for me.However, multiple versions are offered with autographs, remarques, and even sketches right on the box. These 7” scale action figures are fresh from the pages of the comics and fully articulated for great poses.

I personally really like the extra bit of detailed fur sculpting in these figures even though you don’t really see that level in detail on the show. I recommend grasping the up-pointing ears by the base, since mine came separated where the ears meet the base, and I had to glue them back together. They also come with two smaller characters, namely the Grybyx from the episode of the same name (he looks like Gizmo from the Gremlins movie and Q-Bert had an offspring together) and Tribble, the baby Neutrino from "Four Turtles and a Baby. It has been a pretty incredible weekend for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans, with a massive drop from multiple companies.At first, I had thought NECA had made a mistake, until I realized that the stretchy belt that comes in the soft goods baggie is meant to hold the sheathes in place. A standard Black and White version is available, and now there’s also a Space version of Usagi as well. The sheathes are one piece and attach to the belt with a loop of elastic that you can slide under the ab joint.
