Kakashi 4 inch (though it's really 5 inches) Action Figure.
Seeing them was very surprising because I never heard about these coming out (I keep up with this kinda stuff) and I never saw the pictures of them either. So when I saw Naruto, Itachi, and Kakashi action figures in front of me I was like: Whoa....
But I was also leery about buying any of these because I was afraid that the quality might be poor and for the price (I'll get to that in a bit) I really didn't want to buy something that was going to fall apart or something.

Well let's start off with the packaging,
It's pretty eye catching (it sure caught mine). It's too bad these aren't sold in stores like Toys R Us were they could get more exposure, though at least they can be found at comic shops
(though not all from what I've seen)
and they're not nearly as imposable to find as say...Figmas and Revoltechs
(gosh, I gotta get my hands on some sometime! >.<)
It has the a smaller version of the Naruto Shippuden logo on the left with Kakashi's bio and features below that. There's some pictures of the actual figure in various poses on the right side next to the bio and features.
Also it shows the figures other characters available in this Series (1) and illustrations of upcoming characters for Series 2.
Now on what you get out of the box (or package in this case).
The sculpt has a nice amount of detail and paint applications are quite good, especially for an articulated figure at a fairly small scale compared to most anime figures.
He pretty much looks as if he jumped right out on the anime.
Also the reason I bought him before any of the others was because his joints are very well hidden compared to his fellow ninja pals (and enemies). Like his ball hinged shoulders and hip joints.
With all this talk about joints, why don't we talk about his articulation (aka Playability).
The packaging says that there's "Over 25 points of articulation" and I not exactly sure it's true but I think it's a little more articulate then "most" GI-Joe figures out there. Most of the joints use ball-socket joints like GI-Joe and other action figures.
Here's a list of the parts that appear to be movable:
- Torso (is very much like a GI-Joe's)
- Hips (Very much like Hasbro's Marvel movie lines like: Iron Man 2,Wolverine, Thor, and etc..)
The only parts that don't have ball socket joints and are swivel are:
- Knees (which is similar to the older GI-Joe figures)
Also the Wrist have joints too which go back and forth.

Joints can pop out if you're not careful (though I am naturally),so I won't recommend giving this to a young Narutard. Though so far they don't pop out too often which is good.
Price Point, Because $16.00 is a bit steep for an action figure. Though I have heard that some shops sell them for around $13 a piece.
My Kakashi's left knee is a little wobbly, but it's not any big deal and it's affect the figure that much.
Remember I was telling you all that he came with two heads,right?
Well, one of the head's hole where you put the peg into it was way too small.
It took me over an hour with a razor blade to finally make the hole big enough so the peg could fit in so I could use the other head. Now I can finally switch out the heads now.
But for the Price (which wasn't cheap) I shouldn't have had to do that!
I hope that their Quality Control gets better as the line goes on.
