It came from the Toy Chest: What if Himura Kenshin was a bunny?

If the clue isn't that obvious, then you might not know of Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo. It's a comic about a samurai Rabbit, who has crossed swords with a certain Terrapin who obeys this guy

And the only reason we ever get Any Miyamoto Usagi figures is thanks to the TMNT crossovers.

I managed to snag an Usagi by the end of the Advent Calendar and he's been on the back burner for some time.
Let's get cracking!

His Articulation rivals the Nickelodeon TMNT. His loose clothing does hinder the articulation a little bit as well as his scabbards. He can do some Samurai poses, but he cannot go in Seize position... Drat!!!

Paint and Sculpt:
Playmates shorted out on the paints here. A lot of what was painted in the prototypes (and pictures on the back of his card) was unpainted in the final figure. The Sculpt is pretty decent. Not as good as the 2003 era figure sculptwise (but the 2012 era one is close enough)

5.0  he needs nothing else.

Usagi gets a 4.5 as his final score, which is decent. Much better than past Usagi figures.
