It's about time Medicom finally got around to Naruto. Something looks a little off about these figure to me though.

funny it doesnt come with different hand assortment with all those ninjitso hand combinations. :lol

movifei's customs came with a cool base, moving eyes, tats and a premium pricetag. nice effort by medicom tthough, but the lack of accessories and the inflated medicom price tag would direct you to....the Hot Toys booth. :lol

I'm not entirely sure if it doesn't come with more hands. I know their previous FMA ones came with a good assortment and the Naruto ones probably will too. Medi don't tend to show everything at once.

I'm surprised they went for the Naruto license. As much as I hate Naruto and Sasuke, I have to admit the Sasuke figure looks very good. They did a great job with the clothes. I hope they do a ____shi.

Got give credit where is due. They are the go to company when it comes to Anime. My only let down? They never made a Vegeta figure. That would be my grail figure!

Its about damn time, Im so siked right now. I will prorder these on day 1. I cant believe we finally have 1/6 scale naruto figure's this is a dream come true. Say what you want about medicom when it comes to real figure's but they have manga figures down to a T.


Im so excited !!!!!!!!

Yeah, they know how to do anime/manga figures! Hot Toys may give them a run for their money though!

Now if either they or Hot Toys would do Bleach figures so I can replace those Azone and MegaHouse figures!!!

They probaly will do bleach but not for awhile. Im really surprised that naruto is being made. Im a big naruto fan and im so glad that we finally have respectible figures of naruto. Bleach has freaking square enix while naruto has toynami so its good to see medicom get on the naruto hype and make these. Preorder on day 1.

Actually Hot Toys has already proven with Tomodachi, Golgo, Ryo, and Saeko that they do manga and anime characters better than Medicom does and at a more affordable price. Not only do they look better, they have better articulation, are a higher quality, are cheaper, and they come with far more accessories. If there is anything Medicom has never improved or learned, it is accessories. To this day their products still come with little to nothing.

ironwez20
08-02-2011, 03:44 PM
So what do you think thee price ranges are on these figures ? I would bet like 189 or 177. I doubt it will be any higher.

Wait what do you mean 300, Harry potter Rah and goku Rah where about 189 at the most. Even the Fma Figures arent that high on BBTS.

I'm with this guy.. wanted Raoh and Vegeta from both lines over the others..
Raoh could have been King of 1:6 Manga

I will probably just get Naruto from the new medicom line.. I'd really want a Rock Lee but I don't see that happening

cheap brittle plastic that breaks apart easily or crumbles. I have a medicom wolverine that broke apart on the arm really easily.. I have heard same issues with other medicom figs.

Yeah, I've had breaks on both of the Medicom Marvel figures I've owned. Wondering if that brittle plastic is isolated to the Marvel figures since the Star Wars RAHs I've had have never broken, but I've been turned off of Medicom because of it.

New ones are good if they use the new body and it seems to be the case for them (like Kaneda and Tetsuo, no prob so far).

I also have a Goku and Raiden and haven't had any problems yet **crosses fingers** but I am especially scared of moving them too much especially after the Wolv arm. I was luckily able to super glue where it came off and it is still poseable but I would not want to repeat that again.

Really don't like Sasuke's sculpt. It's off, to me. Naruto's allright but as people have said it's a strange time for these now.
I prefer the part one looks but that would be smaller articulated bodies. Oh HT why couldn't you get a license for this.

Probably around the $200 - $250 mark.

Why dont people want shippuden naruto, he is the current naruto. I highly doubt that these will be over 189 since tetsuo and kaneda were like 189 at the most.

iPaul

Still I wouldn't pay that much for an 1/6 Medicom Naruto.Maybe if it was made by HT i would've paid even 200 bucks.

Naruto's one of the "Big Three" in Shonen Jump. It may make the license a bit pricier, also because it is an ongoing series and Akira is a twenty year old movie.

It'll probably be 199.99 but I'm not surprised if it goes anywhere near $250 in this market.

I also just prefer the original designs. I'd hold out for a Sage Mode Naruto though.

Monger
08-03-2011, 02:16 PM
Medicom's prices are for the most part static so I doubt this will be any more than the typical figure from them.

Also just in case you were unaware, the "Big Three" do not exist. That's a term made up by Amerians, but it in no way is actually accurate. For example, a few weeks back Bleach had one of the worst overall weekly rating in the Weekly Jump magazine that week. One Piece and Naruto are not always within the top three either. There is no true Big three of Weekly Jump and if there was, the only one of the three that would be included would be One Piece and, when it is actually being serialized, Hunter x Hunter.

ironwez20
08-03-2011, 02:42 PM
Yea but the most popular anime and manga out today are Naruto,bleach and one piece. Naruto being the most popular in american,europe and asia and one piece being more popular in japan. I'm not so sure about bleach but it's losing momentum right now. I'm hearing fairy tail is getting good rankings aswell. It makes sense that they call them the big three though. They are the big money makers.

I wouldn't say it's a term made by the Americans as it's something I've seen in Bakuman when it started in Japan. I do know it's not always the case of them being the top spots but they were still referenced as the "Big Three" not to mention they regularly have the title pages, colour pages and alike.

^I was never a big fan of the teenish animes including Naruto, but I can see why you would still want these after you outgrew it. It's all about nostalgia sometimes. Actually, DBZ was an anime I outgrew, but I got that awesome Medicos Goku statue that's around 1/6.

Medicom's pricing has been like that for several years now, it's just the variations in exchange rates.

True, I remember 4-5 years ago when people were upset that Medi figures were $150, while HT were around $100 and SSC were $50-60. Now HT figures are $160+ and SSC $100-135, while Medi is easily $200+.

Sasuke looks kinda off. Also, he's dressed in the outfit design I'm not really as fond of.

I don't think I'll be buying these for $300. Even $200 would seem a bit much for me. I've cancelled my Naruto 'Figuarts Zero' pre orders after seeing these though. They don't seem that :cool: now :lol

If they make 'SH Figuarts' Naruto figures, I can forget about these :lol Rock Lee 'SH Figuarts' FTW :D

I think in Japan they are 13050 Yen. That's about $170US. So the $300 price tag at BBTS is a bit much.


It's probably the usual Medi buck body, which is horrible for joint visibility.
I don't think I own a single Medicom figure. This might have been might first, if the price was right :D

Edit: These prices beat BBTS. Except they are from ebay. I've purchased successfully from "Goodshipped" before. But there is always that risk with pre orders where PayPal is concerned, so think about it before buying :D

Naruto $233.88 (Free Shipping) (http://www.ebay.com/itm/MEDICOM-PBM-NARUTO-SHIPPUDEN-UZUMAKI-RAH-1-6-NINJA-NEW-/280730018871?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item415cd02437)

Shipping for Medicom figures is around 1,200Y for SAL, and 2,400Y for EMS if you buy just one.

Edit: BBTS has lowered the price to $259.99, but I've already ordered them from Amiami now. Even at Amiami's discounted price, it's a bit more than I'd like to pay for these figures. But these pics helped nudge me towards ordering :D

Not a bad list price, but this is always the case with Asian pricing and International price. The shipping will always be really high, so you sometimes don't save much, if anything at all. Plus, some of Medi's early runs of figures have had joint or rubber damage problems, which get corrected on the second batch releases. Does anybody remember the dry rot on the DBZ figures necks and chest?!

I think EMS shipping at Amiami will be around $30-$60 (I'm going with SAL packet or SAL parcel shipping, so I don't think I'll be paying that much for shipping). Shipping from BBTS is around $40 for me. So Amiami still wins for me.

The cheapest shipping I found, for the US, on BBTS is around $10. So BBTS is :cool: for you US peeps. But for international customers, I think Amiami's prices are pretty good ..... considering. These toys are a bit pricey I think. But they are the best figures I think I've seen of these characters. So what're you gonna do? :lol

Have you used Amiami before? I'm wondering how good their service is :D

I'm a regular customer and get stuff from them on a monthly basis, since most of the stuff I collect other than HT are Japanese stuff like Kamen Riders. So I'm letting everyone know those shipping rates form experience.

They're really quick to ship, and I've never had a problem with them. Not to mention they have the best prices on the web for Japanese collectibles.

You can actually cross check amiami's shipping rates with HLJ on similar items, since they both charge exactly what the shipping cost is without ripping people off.

Lawrence
09-06-2011, 08:32 PM
So you think it would be around $15 for SAL & $30 for EMS?

amiami and HLJ's shipping rates are just about the same. (200Y difference max, bar HLJ's discounted EMS rate)

I ordered a BM! Medicom figure from amiami a month ago, and the rate shown on HLJ's page was exactly how much I was charged.

If you don't order from amiami regularly, it might've been an order you placed when they had 50% off shipping for two consecutive months last year that gave you the impression that they are $10 cheaper than HLJ.

amiami have their rates listed in their FAQ section. Just use the weight on HLJ as a guide and add 300g for the weight of the box.

The description lists it as Mangekyo :D

- A 12 inch action figure of Sasuke Uchiha
- Lots of optional parts are included such as "Mangekyo Sharingan" mode face part, "Chidori" effect parts and swords
- RAH301Kai + Special parts are used for the body and it's body line is realistic

I'll give it a shot, but it's basically describing what is included, which is all shown in the photos.

Sasuke, who was once Naruto's close friend, now intent on taking revenge on the Leaf, from the anime "Naruto: Shippuden" is now coming to us as a fully posable action-figure. Also, it uses the RAH301 Kai body with specially made parts, and is approximately 30 cms tall. The costume is made of fabric, and the Uchina clan symbol is re-created on its back. And some more description on the costume, how the waist is being re-created, and the sword sleeve is attached to it.

There are 2 facial expressions included, a emotionless one, and one of Mangekyou Sharingan. Some about the right hand being able to hold the sword handle in different ways (basically what is shown in the photos). A clear effect part for replicating the "Chidori" attack is included". Looking forward to displaying it in battle poses.

The clothes will fit fine. Personally, I wouldn't use the Medi hands, since they tend to have a very visible and protruding joint. The hands should be compatible with HT wrist pegs though. The head might be a problem, because Medicom usually uses small neck pegs, so neck mod may be in order.

2 things..

1. is it only me who feels a little peeved that although we get an extra head on this this i feel disapointed because its a big stupid grinning Naruto rather than a fanged red eyed kyubi energy type head or even a sage mode face

( but then you would need like 3 or 4 chakra tails or a sage mode scroll and cape, but you get where i'm coming from right??)


2. i'm new to all this pre order hype, so do i really need to pre order this 5 - 6 months before its release to guarantee getting it at a decent price??? (even though the rrp price is ridiculous!)

Lawrence
10-13-2011, 08:22 AM
The smiley Naruto face is one of main selling points for me actually. Without the Naruto smiley, I don't know if I would buy the Naruto figure. Without the Naruto figure, I don't know if I would buy the Sasuke figure.

I think I only realised how important that Naruto smiley is to me :lol

Aether
10-14-2011, 02:03 AM
i dont mind the Naruto smiley face as such, its just that its quite limited in the poses you can do with it. an angry face goes more with action poses that you can do with the figure . ideally we would get 3 heads. moody, smiley and angry!


like i asked before is there really a need to order 6 months before its release??

Great store, am a frequent buyer, they tend to use paper for protection of the goods, which adds a lot of weight to the shipping.

They will fulfil your order. Great in stock checking system as well (30 and below units)

I think they may have implimented a strict non-canceling policy... where they may black-list your account. (from other's experience)

Another good point of Amiami, Perorder price and retail of in stock items are generally price the same, other online retailers tend to jack-up prices as items arrives.

Order cancellations are generally not accepted.
Once an order is placed, you are responsible for any paying for it in a timely manner.
Please carefully review this FAQ before ordering.
Depending on frequency, order amount, and reasons of cancellation, there is a possibility we might stop taking orders from customers who repeatedly ask for cancellation in order to allow genuine customers better access to stock.

They do the latter too, although not very frequently, and only to items that sells very well where they managed to re-stock with limited stock in the short term. They've done it before with the HT Iron Man Mark VI, and a couple of other odd items.

I've canceled items on odd occasions before (although not high end items), but as long as you don't pre-order loads of stuff and cancel it all the time, you're okay as long as you're being sensible. It's mentioned in the FAQ too.

Doubt it, since Kishimoto seems to have forgotten all the other characters as well.

With the exception of Kamen Rider and Ultraman, Medicom tends to only produce the main characters from a series. We didn't even get Vegeta in the DBZ line.

11-12-2011, 04:13 PM
I highly doubt it. mainly becuase they always do like two of the main character's. But with dbz they did Goku, SS goku ,Piccolo and Gohan and with Fullmetal we got edward, alphonse and mustang with another edwarrd and Al on the way. So its possible we will get more. I hope we get ____shi or sakura and for akatsuki I hope we get Itachi, madara and pein. Hell I'd even go for a neji if they make him. I have high hope's they will be more since everybody wants these figs.

Anyone know if the quality of the medicom bodies have been fixed?
I only own 2 medicom figures (and a few HT figs), Spawn and Old Snake with no problems but I've heard from a lot of people that the bodies are very brittle. I don't pose my medi figs often for fear of breaking them but Naruto has to be posed!

Pantone
11-13-2011, 01:06 AM
That's really hard to answer, because their bodies break almost on a figure by figure basis. All my RAH220 DX bodies move smoothly and none of them has broken.

My Kamen Rider New Rider #1 Ver. 2 has both legs broken, although my V3 is doing okay despite having re-posed it fairly recently. I've also heard of a lot of broken Shadow Moons, but mine is still okay.

This is Medicom. All they do is get as many licenses as possible, without at all caring about actually completing the licenses. The only modern exception for the most part is the Jojo's Bizarre Adventure lineup. Even Fist of the North Star never got Raoh, Toki, Shin, etc...

Don't expect more than at the very most four figures total, but chances are these two will be it.

I'd have to disagree. I feel like at the very least ____shi and perhaps even Sakura should be done as these are what most would consider to be the main team or group of characters. Most other characters in Naruto are mostly just background people that get their moment to shine every now and then. Jiraiya would be really interesting though. His outfit would look great if done right and I would especially be interested in how his hair is done. As a figure, he would probably be really huge too, wider than most others and certainly very tall, probably as tall as Dio.

They do variants of Kamen Riders man :lol

I think like HT, they decide whether to continue a line or not from the sales of the first main figures, just like Kenshiro, Goku etc which doesnt seem to sell very well, so they decided not to continue :dunno

When you think of Naruto though, you think of Naruto and Sasuke. It is primarily their story. I doubt you'll see anymore.
I'd have loved them to complete the Death Note line and do part two characters such as Near and Mello. I'd love a Shujin to go with Mashiro [and this one should be made] from Bakuman but this is Medicom. It's all drips and drabs.

Yeah, I already thought about the fact that medicom doesn't complete its licensed products, but on the other side they did 4 dbz figures so im still hoping for more naruto shippuuden figures from medicom. I mean common there has to be a good 1/6 Itachi figure in the future cause hes the greates and most sexy uchiha of all time imo. Anyway Im thinking about getting both naruto and sasuke.

Piccolo, Goku, and Gohan, but no Vegeta or any villains? It's pretty bad if you ask me. They didn't even do Krillin even though they probably could have reused Gohan's body for it. It's like how they released Jagi in the Hokuto no Ken lineup. That's just stupid. Why him? There's no reason to pick him over Shin, Raoh, Toki, etc... It's like Medicom wants to kill their lines.

And Death Note is far more centered around Light and L than Naruto is around Sasuke and Naruto. There are huge portions of the series where Sasuke is entirely irrelevant and almost never seen, including right now. Yeah he and Naruto is the main rivalry, but characters like Sakura actually have more screen time and her and ____shi are both very relevant as the main team. ____shi needs to be done. Sakura is arguable, but ____shi is a must.

Aether

Sakura would make an excellent figure and k a k a shi.

well i hope the naruto figures are better made than he DBZ Goku because on mine his arm broke off at the shoulder the other week :(

i was beyond peeed off, i dont even think its fixable.

seeing as naruto is costing nearly double that of Goku i would be hulk peed off if it happened to him!

Well from what I've seen the Goku body was just really bad in general. It cracks and deteriorates. Piccolo is awesome though. I've never had a problem with him though he can't hold poses well at all thanks to those huge forearms.

Aether
01-22-2012, 04:03 AM
i'll keep it in mind but i would begrudge having to buy a hot toys body :( my point is we shouldnt have to as they should be bloody well made!

anyway

does anyone expect these to be actually 12'' ?? because i hope they are not..

if they were 12'' and medicom ever did do k a k ashi etc. then they would have to be about 13-14'' so i reckon Naruto and Sasuke should be about 10.5'' if they are to be in scale with bigger characters.

Monger
01-23-2012, 08:25 PM
I really hope they at least announce a ____shi and Sakura. The announcement of at the very least ____shi would probably persuade me to buy Naruto and Sasuke. I like a lot of characters in the series, but those two are not included. With the rest of Squad 7 though it would be really cool and make for an awesome display. I hope these sell well so we actually get more of them and not just a one shot thing.

Because I like the show, I'm still keeping my pre order. But these don't look like they are worth the asking price. Maybe it's the poor quality pics, I don't know. Naruto's lower half looks weird to me. Although I do like Sasuke's head sculpt a bit more. Actually I think Sasuke looks like the better figure in these pics. Would have liked to have seen Naruto's smiling head sculpt on display.

Well Naruto's pants looked bad even in the promotional shots Medicom released. They didn't design them well. It sags in a way that just looks awkward. Naruto as a whole looks awkward the figure I mean. On the other hand, Sasuke looks much better than he did in the promotion shots.

But yeah the pose they gave Naruto is laugh worthy. It's like they wanted it to be dynamic, but he has trouble balancing so they could barely move him. It's really awkward.

post some phone photos for now.. forgot to take photos of naruto cause busy playing with it.. and i lazy to take it out just to take photos again... will post some detail photos later on..

Naruto can look weird sometimes. I'm happy I purchased Sasuke as well, instead of only Naruto. I think Sasuke might look better in those pics, but that seam in his hair ..... yuck. I'm guessing it won't bug me that much when I get it 'in hand' though. Now I'm wondering if the whole head is removed if we want to change looks, or if it's only the face that is removable, when we want to change looks.

Thanks again for the pics Chobo :D

I got mine from ami ami as well.. Payment made on Saturday and they arrive on monday.. That was shocking fast.. But then again cause I'm from Asia.. So might be faster.. Just that never expect it to be that fast..

It's a whole head.. Which to me I think it's good.. If its just the face it might be easier to change though..

Yes.. Even in real personally I think sasuke looks better compared to naruto.. Due to the fact that sasuke costume is more balance.. As you can tell that naruto legs look a bit too skinny.. Also his shirt is kinda long and his pants is kinda low an short.. And probably because of that.. his upper body seems to look longer than his lower body.. My only complain on sasuke is his big axx belt.. They are a little too big and that metallic shinny color is kinda eye catchy.. Prefer it to be in matte purple instead of metallic shinny purple.. Btw sasuke costume fits better on this particular body as well.. But all in all naruto is not a bad figure.. Just that sasuke is slightly better..
