XTRA Kakashi Hatake & Shikamaru Nara (1/10 scaled) - Tsume ArtXTRA Kakashi Hatake & Shikamaru Nara (1/10 scaled) - Tsume Art

squalleddsqualledd3 år sidenReview
Tsume Art! When people heard this brand, here are words that usually pop up in their head: Expensive, High Quality, and Limited! Well, they are right...

Both Kakashi and Shikamaru are in 2nd gen XTRA category. It means that they're both made from PVC and 1/10th scaled and the quality has been improved both sculpt and painting. Plus now they comes with window box.

Questions are: "Do they looks good?" "Do they improved their XTRA line?" "Do they really..???"
I was surprised when the package arrive at my house faster than I thought. Then I rushed home early, eager to get the answer my self.

The 1st gen of XTRA line boxes had no window. And body parts and accessories were need to be attach before we got the complete figure. It looked like Scultures from Banpresto.
But now there's a window and it's in complete state. Shikamaru has already attached to the base with all the shadow effects but Kakashi hasn't except his Chidori effect.

As Tsume promised, both Kakashi and Shikamaru are looking very good.
Kakashi has dynamic pose. He's in motion doing Chidori attack. And Tsume freeze it in the right moment. It is as if you saw him doing it in the anime or game with low angle. And you could see the movement of his attack. I really love this pose! That's the "X" factor! On the other hand, Shikamaru's isn't! He is slightly crouched and his hand making a seal to perform Kagenui no jutsu. And shadows, made from black clear PVC, comes from the base. But don't get me wrong.. Because that's how he poses when doing the jutsu. It's just not as dynamic as Kakashi.

And the face! It has been the area of Tsume's weakness. But not this time. In fact, this is the best Kakashi face I've seen. Shikamaru's too. Both are true to original manga!

Both figures has a superior painting job and sculpt in their clothes. You can see the details that true the original manga. The shading and color gradients is stunning. It's rarely seen in this size of figure. Especially on Kakashi's hair. It got special attention of sculpt and painting. You can see the quality compared to Megahouse version later in the pictures.

And now let's see the comparison with Kakashi Hatake (1/8 scaled) from Megahouse.

As you can see in the pictures, the detail on Tsume's clothes is par with Megahouse. The color too even though Tsume's has more gradient and shadow. But one thing for sure Tsume Kakashi's hair is more detail compared to Megahouse's. And the face is better too. More true to the manga.

I am quite surprise with this comparison. I love the next generation of XTRA. Tsume Art is heading the right way.

There are few notes for this XTRA:
1. The shading and color gradients are a bit too much. I think less is more beautiful.
2. The QC need to be improved. I still can see the excess transparent glue here and there. But it is not too distracting.
3. The artwork on the box. Please be more artistic and less advertising. Focus on the figure its self.

Before I close my review, let's make a collaboration between Tsume x Megahouse. Here are the stars: Kakashi Hatake x Pakkun!

Yes, Pakkun wanted to be in the frame too. But during the photoshoot, Kakashi accidentally (or not) hit Pakkun. Maybe Kakashi had a bad day! Sorry Pakkun.. :)

EhtNogard (3 år siden) #4246275Love the review. I didn't buy the Shika figure yet, but it is nice to see them together like this. I actually like the shading, it makes my Megahouse V1 and V2 look bland in comparison. But to put it next to my Megahouse Anbu version, I can see where it would be seen as too much. The Anbu version isn't as shaded yet looks amazing.
I think the Tsume Kakashi is one of my all time fav figures. You photos look amazing! Especially the collection photo. It is fab to see them all together!!
Agree on the box also. Strange to see how much smaller Shika's box is, yet almost appears larger than Kakashi because of the pose XD


Thank you. Yes, the shading is good but for me is too much. About Kakashi, he is really the best of Kakashi figure to date even he is on 1/10 scaled.
I can't wait for Orochimaru :)

xXsKuNkAyXx (3 år siden) #4066848Well I'm glad you actually got yours, it's been a big pain with these figures. I don't even think I'm going to get mine due to having problems with confirming my address, however they do look stunning!

Maybe you can try their FB message. That's also Tsume's weakness: (very) late response..

neL (3 år siden) #4066890I want a Sakura X-tra ;-;. These guys look nice!

Me too.. I want Sakura XTRA! :)

CrowMaiden (3 år siden) #4068126Wow, that's amazing for a 1/10 scale! They look really good.

Yes, they look amazing for this size.. :)

Ricotta (3 år siden) #4069414Very nice review! Will you do Orochimaru when you'll receive him?

Yes, I will try to do a review of DXTRA Orochimaru later :)

maggie (3 år siden) #4069832They are nice! I've never been a big Tsume fan but I feel they look better than they used to. I also don't like Megahouse's Naruto figures so to see a nice Kakashi like this give me hope. I wish some place made dioramas or whatnot, I spoke with Banpresto about a better line of Naruto figures and they seemed receptive so we'll see haha.

Yes, Tsume did improved their XTRA line.. They are all looking good. But the QC and customer service need to be improved too.. :)
