Not sure how I completely missed this KS, but I placed a pre-order for five figures at The Fwoosh.

Anyone that's into Marvel Legends/ DCUC/ NECA/ other 6" figures should give these a look. They aren't cheap, but if the final product is close to the final engineering prototypes, they're going to be outstanding.

Despite missing the KS pricing, I'm almost glad I didn't know about these earlier b/c I would have been going nuts waiting on them. They can't come out soon enough.

I've been kinda-sorta been following the saga of these around the net. Ninjas aren't something I'm gonna go out of outside of my scale preference over, especially at the price point, but there are some cool things going on with this one.

The samurai trigger the shit out of my inner rivet-counter. :trollface:

There is no question that they're trying to hit every ninja/samurai/kung-fu button out there. Gotta have broad appeal to make something like this work.

Still, Storm Shadow and the red ninjas hardly need anything more than faction logos.... They'll look killer next to the upcoming revoltech Spider-Man :).... And while I didn't order it, how great would that Temple Guardian (Silver Samurai) look with a ML wolverine?!

Some "reviews" by some of the folks involved. Overall, I'm impressed. I ordered a half-dozen figures, and I'm more excited about these than anything else on the horizon at the moment. If they can make this a success, I have to imagine that a military line might be an attractive option for another line down the road.

Meh. Too much $$$ for something like this. Basically asking import prices for generic figures.

If they were mass produced and more affordable, I'd gladly purchase a bunch.

Eh, I agree that they're not cheap by any measure, but they're on par price-wise with any other non-mass-market 6" figures. And they're cheaper than 6" revoltech, figuarts, etc.

My interest is primarily the figures that can integrate with my ML collection or be easily customized into 6" Joes... and there are several that fall into that lazy-bastard category. It's almost too easy.

They're basically on par with the thin ML buck used for Pizza Spidey and Iron Fist - like you say, ninjas probably should be. They look small next to TV Punisher, but they'll scale well with SW Black, which also skew a tad smaller.
