Not something I'm aware of, but the Ramen Store looks cool - here is a 'not-Lego' version of it

Yes, that brick rendition of it is excellent.

Naruto is many things, it also mines deep into Japanese folklore, and is quite clever in many aspects, considering it?s aimed at young people. Its problem is the problem of many other such shows (see Dragon Ball), it oustays it?s welcome by 20 seasons at least, and you get to a point where fights start spanning 10 episodes and you need a prescription for valium to sit through them. The anime at least, because the manga is much breezier pace-wise.

Nice shots! Herakles's beard is a little low though  :deco:

I couldn't live with the beard shame. I fixed it.  :wave:

Tahra is correct. There are 2 versions of 9296. The box type  photo sually shows the old version with the silver buttons but if you Google it you will find images of it with this torso. It is a popular torso useful for Victorian era officials like police and firefighters.

Yes, I use it for my Victorian firefighters but I have only ever come across the figures with the 10 silver buttons.

Looks like we’ll not get Chinese Olympic sets …..but these Asian sets will be very welcomed

Hope it’s a theme and not just a token set or two

I think its a gargoyle. It is very reminiscent of the LEGO collectible minifigure series gargoyle from a few years back.

Spot on, Tiermann, down to the texture and colour of the plastic! Even the chest print matches:

Question answered. Thank you, guys!
