Had him for about 4 months now, still easily my favourite or second favourite figure of the year. And probably a top 10 figure for the Toon line.

Usagi is what got me to relent and start buying into the toon line, at least to the point of the main characters I remembered from my youth. Such a fantastic little figure.

Usagi is the only figure in the line so far I deliberately bought two of, not counting repaints or reissues of the Turtles themselves. It’s definitely among my 2022 top ten, and among my favorites in this line, which should be considered the quintessential TMNT line.

He's only been widely available for about three weeks, you're not even really late! Just that some folks (not me) got him direct from a NECA pre-order or from AliExpress earlier.

Usagi is a great execution of the "Ultimate" format. He really feels deluxe. The different accessories, as well as the clothing/hat/extra head that changes up his look, for $32.99... in this day and age I can't think of what I'd ask more from a figure at that price. The articulation could be more complex? I guess? But then we're looking at imports and double the price, so no. And NECA has always, with this line, engineered figures that "perform" with the articulation schemes that they have, they not only hold a variety of poses but come alive in them. I work as an artist for my day job and these figures are really little works of art, I tip my hat to them. This little bunny is in the top five this year, and he will only be unseated by figures that cost twice/three times/four times as much. I hope everyone that wants him finds him, but it seems like distro is pretty good. All over a win win.

Found one lone Usagi this weekend and picked him up. He really is a great little figure and surprisingly moves the best right out of the box of any NECA figure I’ve gotten so far. Joints aren’t too tight or too loose.

Came in the mail today. Overall superb figure, i do have some nitpicks.

Cons:

- from the side, looks kinda thin (needs more chest)
- sword is kinda small
- sword should be shiny/silver color
- mines came with a bum leg, comes out easily but ill keep it
- what are those weird cookie looking things on his outfit? (i might modify them)

Pros:

- I like the spear knife
- it only has 6 small lines to take off, if you didnt want the 'animated' look
- love the hair texture
- like that the ears are moveable
- alot of accessories
- like that it comes with a extra head
- Love the asian straw hat (thats 25% of why i wanted this fig, i have a thing for asian straw hats, im weird)
- like the mini cut out that it came with since i dont have the street diorama LOL (gonna preserve & modify it)

The "cookie" things are just designs that are on his kimono. They're in the comic design too. This is just...you know, more animated.

He shouldn't have "shiny" swords in this release, because he's an animated figure. :wink:

I'm sure we'll get another version for the comic lines.
