HEX Collectibles, a Chinese statue company, has launched a new 1/8 scale statue from “Naruto: Shippuden“, the God of Shinobi: Hashirama Senju! The whole statue is designed very grandly and powerful. And it is also a limited edition with only 750 pieces, let’s take a look!
Hashirama Senju, the leader of the Senju clan, the first Hokage who founded the Konoha Village, and also the grandfather of Tsunade, the Fifth Hokage. He is good at using the powerful Wood Release technique and has the ability to control tailed beasts. He is hailed as the “God of Shinobi” by the ninja world. In the Kage Summit, he shared the tailed beasts Konoha with the five villages, and he also defeated Madara Uchiha, the legendary leader of the Uchiha clan.
This Hashirama Senju statue adopts 1/8 scale, including the base, the overall height reaches 57.6cm, approx. 22.7 inches.
From the above picture, you can also see that the statue also provides another Hashirama Senju main body part, which is 19.1cm high, approx. 7.5 inches.
This Hashirama Senju statue reproduces the scene of Hashirama Senju performing his Wood Release techniques, squatting on the wooden dragon he created, holding his iconic Long Sword in one hand, and preparing for a battle with Madara Uchiha.
Hashirama Senju, along with both his dragons, is sculpted in one frame to portray the actual image of dominance and intimidation.
From the side view, you can see Hashirama Senju is sitting in a sprint position on the root of the dragon as he steadies himself to attack along with the wooden dragon and wooden man behind him. The green-colored wooden dragon and man also seem to be having branches of a tree that might make it seem as if the origin of the dragon was from the tree itself.
You can clearly find what looked like branches of trees being a part of the dragon and golem. The branches also seem to be cut off in half, preventing them from growing, the truth of which you could learn from watching the entire series. With the help of the dragon and golem, Hashirama Senju is able to defeat his enemies, as you can judge by the look of the dragon and the wooden golem, who seem fierce nonetheless.
The back of this frightening statue is more complicated as you can see that only the parts of the dragons are sculpted in a pretty messed up yet organized way. If you focus more on the body of the dragons, you can see that the linings are the perfect way to describe the texture of the dragon’s skin.
Look closely at the menacing wooden dragon’s and golem’s faces, and you’ll realize that the fierceness on both of the faces is enough to scare off the enemies other than the powers they were throned with. Their yellow-colored eyes are also sculpted perfectly along with their body to replicate the most realistic image.
Let’s turn our attention back to Hashirama Senju himself to get a glimpse of God of Shinobi.
Hashirama Senju is wielding a broad-bladed sword, his long black hair fluttering in the wind, and the way he roared at Madara was perfectly portrayed.
As you can see, the armor he wore over his leg also seems to replicate the scratches he might’ve got fighting his enemies. The scroll behind his back is also tied pretty neatly, along with the perfect alignment of the colors on it. And the samurai sword in his clenched fist that looks so realistic. With his sword tightly in his hand, he is all set to pierce through any kind of enemy that might cross your path.
The best part about this statue is that you are met with different facial expressions of Hashirama Senju, so you can match his expressions along with yourself and take perfect selfies.
And it also included an interchangeable left arm, even the sword is removable, so you are also met with an empty hand as it is up to you to decide whether you want him to hold the sword for a better realistic view.
Combining and replacing different parts, the display effect of statue is very good.
Of course the additional body part for the Hashirama Senju mentioned at the beginning, HEX also provides an additional wood style base for stand-alone display.
In addition, the eyes of Wood golem and dragon also have built-in LED lights. After lit up, the golem and dragon becomes more lively.
I have to say that this Hashirama Senju statue is indeed a perfect work, and it is also very rare among all the statues of the Naruto series on the market.
If you’re already a fan of Naruto, buying this Hashirama Senju statue is necessary so that you can amp up the look of your collection. Don’t waste a second more and get it delivered right to your doorstep, making a part of your Naruto collection.
