Thomas checks out the cool new Ronin Avengers Endgame figure from Tamashii’s SHF line
While waiting for the release of the Avengers Endgame final battle figures at the end of the month, I thought I’d review one of the very first figures released for the acclaimed movie – Ronin. Originally, I had planned to review them in April but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, my package was stuck in Japan.
Ronin comes with 6 interchangeable hands, 2 interchangeable heads, one removable hood, one sword and 3 sheaths (one with the sword in it that you can attach on his back, one without the sword that you can also attach and the last one without the sword that he can hold in his hands).
The outfit is similar to the outfit Clint Barton has later on in the movie but obviously, this one has a more “Ninja assassin” look. There are good details and nice paint apps. The golden color is the same used on the Hawkeye figure. Actually, these two figures complete each other. You can attach the sheath on the Hawkeye figure, the same way that you can attach the quiver on the Ronin figure. Hands and heads also fit so you can have a Ronin without the hood and a Hawkeye with the sword. I really love it when you have figures like these that can complete each other!
This figure has 26 points of articulation so you can get great action poses!
As for the head sculpts, these are hooded heads so you only see the eyes, they basically used the Clint Barton headsculpt and kept just the eyes. It’s good work so just like Hawkeye, one is straight face and the other is looking in the other direction. Not a lot of originality there but it’s good.
A worth buying figure if you have the Hawkeye figure to complete it.
