Hey there, Shizu "Iruka-sensei Figure Lovin'" Mecha here. Following Naruto and Kakashi in the G.E.M. Series is none other than Sasuke Uchiha! Today we look at him as he appeared in early Part 2, rope and all.

G.E.M. Series - NARUTO Shippuden: Sasuke Uchiha Complete Figure [MegaHouse]

Sasuke's lost youth and hatred-tempered iron will have made the jump into 3D just as tangibly as his fancy purple belt. Sculpting the likes of Kotetsu T. Kaburagi, Lancer and Kakashi Hatake to name a few, Kosuke Arai has proven time and again that he can do male figures just as well if not better than bishojo.

Silently drawing his Sword of Kusanagi he stares down his next opponent in this bone-chilling pose. The cool tone colorway only serves to add to the doom and gloom that curses this poor boy.

Three different head parts allow you to swap between normal, Sharingan and Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan eyes. Naturally the pupils are printed and placed with laser-like precision and will stop you dead in your tracks if you're caught off guard.

From these angles his handsome face is enveloped in pure blood lust. Forget trying talk with your eyes, Sasuke's icy gaze is downright belligerent! This reasonably sized 24cm tall figure won't help you get revenge on the ones who slaughtered your family but it will certainly keep unwanted visitors out of your bedroom!

Petit Chara Land NARUTO Shippuden Kuchiyose! Ninkai Taisen Dattebayo!

Now we take a radical departure from Sasuke Emo Land and venture into Petit Chara Land! This adorable series of 6 swirly-eyed SD figures come complete with their animal familiars.

The full lineup includes Naruto (Kurama Mode), Sasuke, Orochimaru, Hashirama Senju, Madara Uchiha and Kakashi as they appear in part 4 of the series.

This is the first time that these familiars have made their way into Petit Chara Land. They're all cute but I am a total sucker for Nine Tails! How about you?
