Still stuck on a cycle of wave 3 revision 4 in my area.
Be nice if I could get this and charbroil. Liked how you put him up against red fang ninja it's a bit new looking than the storm shadow/ snake eyes confrontation. Almost like the beginning of a new generation. Some things change and others stay the same.
Shuriken holster looks more realistic here than on quick kick. Very nice.

I don't regret buying this one, I just regret not buying the white lab coat Rex along with it- I saw them both the same day at TRU, and I was budgeting.
To add my two cents-
1- Offscreen characters are what I usually aim for in ROC figures, and this one is pretty decent. He may be a frankenjoe, but he's not a bad one. The parts combination is good, so it does strike me as original.
2- Weapons are great, especially the claw and kama. I love getting uncommon weapons with Joes, especially ninja weapons.
1- The backpack is kinda cool, I guess... but it strikes me as bulky. The swords get bent if you keep them in the clamps too long.
2- The Uzi is a Micro-Uzi, and I never was a fan of that weapon. Perhaps if I had one more, it would be a cool kitbash to hand off to another figure like the Baroness or Dial-Tone.
In the end, I wound up dropping his backpack. I just can't see him feasibly reaching and drawing those swords with it being that wide. Also, the gold dragon things bothered me a bit. I gave him another Uzi and passed off his kama to Storm Shadow. I let him keep the claw, because he holds it so well. I just strapped CS Duke's sword to his back and that was the end of it.
Worth it for a kitbash and good figure.

i really enjoyed this review and feel i can now make an informed decision when purchasing this figure. i had always planned on buying this guy when and if he ever makes it to a store near me but not as Kamakura be cause 1 i look at this fig and it screams ninja gaiden to me 2 i already made a kamakura custom so i don't need or want him, but i don't have a ninja gaiden and i want a bunch of those. i will also take some Shinobi's and some Strider's please and thank you

I haven't even seen him in the stores, but I like the look of the figure, including the color. Blue beats green as a ninja outfit color any day, in my opinion. And in this case it also fits the look of the line overall... blue is really prominent in the movie-based figures, even the characters that weren't in it. Kamakura fits with that look.
