Pop Toys 1/6 "Shadow Ninja" in Batman Begins Pt.2

The balaclava is tailored and it fits the head very well. There is a lower face plate attached to the balaclava.

The armour is made of plastic. I was wondering what kind of material the factory has used. Because the surface of one armour plate that covers the lower abdomen is sticky.

I like the gauntlets as the details on the surface are very fine sculpted with great weathering.

I was impressed as the combat boots are made from leather-like material. These boots have laces which allow you to pull tight and fasten.

Unfortunately, the blade of the sword is not made of metal. Both sword and sheath are made of plastic.

I personally love this head sculpt as Pop Toys has captured the likeness of Liam Neeson.

The skin colour of the face is realistic and the wrinkles really look natural.

The paint application on the moustache, beard and hair is good with reasonable amount of gray and white.

Due to the design of the pants, the articulation of the lower body is limited. For the arms, they can hold basic poses.

A few more shots taken from the figure with its fighting poses.

Surprisingly, the figure has tight joints and it can stand on its own.

In my opinion, this is the best figure to resemble Liam Neeson as Ra's al Ghul in Batman Begins. You may see its packaging here.

I like the sculpt of gauntlets too! Nice and neat. Cool that the ninja mask is worn over the head (removal) rather than changing heads.

Yes, the balaclava is a nice addition to the figure :)
