Naruto is over. Long live Naruto. Even though Boruto is the hot new thing (mileage may vary), the Naruto figures will never stop. These two new figures announced by Bandai are looking to be top tier quality — the Naruto Shippuden Wind God Naruto & Thunder God Sasuke dual figures from GEM.
GEM figures are usually pretty good, and this legendary duo look to be no different. Each of them face off against one another as separate figures, riding atop beasts styled as clouds. The two look to be extremely details, and come in at around 18cm.
Even though each figure stands on its own, they are sold together for about 19,000 Yen, which is around £130. Pre-orders open in Japan 10th May! But take a closer look at these bad boys before you look to import.
Wind God Naruto
Shirtless, Naruto is riding atop a cloud modelled on Kurama, the Nine-Tailed Fox that dwells within him. His expression is pretty great, as are the fabric like his clothes and the cloth he’s holding. The cloth itself is super detailed!
Thunder God Sasuke
Like Naruto, Sasuke is also shirtless. Because why not? Similarly he is riding atop Susanoo, an extremely powerful chakra summon that Sasuke masters in Shippuden. The Sasuke figure is just as detailed as Naruto, yet appears to be a bit more delicate with some of the extra features such as his accessories, the ring behind him, and the thinner cloth swirl. They both look great, but this one perhaps looks the more detailed of the pair.
Both of these Naruto Shippuden Wind God Naruto & Thunder God Sasuke GEM figures look great! Pre-orders open 10th May in Japan, and will be delivered late September 2017.
