We bought this figure together with the Uzumaki Naruto collectible that we wrote about a few weeks ago. Haruna Sakura was initially thought to be Naruto’s love interest but the way the manga is shaping up it looks like she’s really more for Sasuke (Hinata and Naruto yay). Anyway, we couldn’t resist getting this figure as well since it was the last piece in the store and Naruto would be lonely on our cabinet without somebody he knows, hehe.
What’s interesting about this figure though is the interpretation of the sculptor/artist. Sakura is known to be a melee fighter but she’s not really into weapons. This particular figure though has her holding two gigantic axes, which theoretically should be easy to handle for her given her strength, a kunai, and a chain scythe type weapon around her neck. This set-up is actually more for Ten-ten if you ask us.
Here are a few photos we took of the figure for your appreciation:
This was a little more expensive than the Naruto figure. I think it sold for a little over Php4,000. If you want one you can try checking out GreatToysOnline. They’re an awesome toy store which you can find either along Annapolis Street or in Shoppesville (3rd floor) in Greenhills.
