Figure | Banpresto Q Posket Rurouni Kenshin - Kenshin Himura


Previously, I've promised you guys to drop reviews on Banpresto Q Posket for Rurouni Kenshin and the second figure that came out from this line back in April is indeed the titular character of the live action movie which is Kenshin Himura (緋村 剣心 Himura Kenshin).

I've been following this releases of the live action movie since 2012 and after 13 years, the 2-part Rurouni Kenshin finale is coming to Netflix; first part called The Final is already available but I'm going to watch both parts back-to-back once the second part called The Beginning released at the end of this month. 

First thing first, let's talk about the packaging!


As you can see the above, there's the front elevation printed both at the front and back of the box. The design is real nice and just pops right out with the bright colour to complement the figure colour scheme. This is indeed the A version of the figure and as much as I love this version, I do want to get the B version wear Kenshin wears dark navy men's kimono although not now-now. Of course, there's the Bandai Spirits CO. Ltd. logo at the lower right corner of the box with Banpresto logo at the top right of it as to indicate that this is an authentic item released by the manufacturer.  


At the top side of the box, there's the figurine line; Rurouni Kenshin Q Posket printed on it and there's also the round, white and blue logo printed on the lower right part that says Approved by SHUEISHA. Also, there's the manufacturing date printed at the bottom side of the box which is April, 2021 and I'm pretty sure that this is the Asian Version of the figure.


Now, the figurine came with an inner packaging and protector lining that supposedly hold the unassembled figurine inside so even when the outer box get smashed into half of its size, not to worry as the figurine should be safe for you to unbox. 

To my observation, an authentic figure always comes in a box and there's serial number stamped on the inner side of of the top (sometimes bottom) lid of the box so definitely check yours before cutting open the plastic cover.

I also noticed that these recents releases have set of number printed right on the plastic and there's also a series of number printed at the back of the foot stand along with Bandai Spirits name and logo.

Of course, the figurine came in unassembled parts, sealed in clear plastics; usually in 3 to 6 parts depending on the design and for this second figure from the line, there's the custom black foot stand, the head, the body and hand that's holding the sword which took me less than a minute to assemble. 

Generally, Kenshin dresses simply; wearing a plain men's kimono of cheap, worn-out clothes with a white hakama, zori and tabi. In the live-action films, Kenshin wears a brown kimono in addition to his signature red kimono given to him by Kaoru in the first movie and dark-coloured kimono as seen in his flashbacks.

Now, let's see some close-ups on the figure!

Front and back elevations. The red kimono is real nice indeed but I really want to collect the other version too!

There's the embossed copyright at the inner part of his light brown hakama.

Kenshin was released simultaneously with Enishi. 

The above is Kenshin along with his Battousai outfit which I'd be reviewing in the upcoming weeks so definitely stay tuned for that!
