Uchiha Itachi is the older brother of central Naruto character Sasuke, and this 1/8th scale figure from MegaHouse’s G.E.M. Series which is aimed at female collectors features him as he appears whilst attached to the Anbu.

Following on from the previously released “Hatake Kakashi Ver. Anbu” figure, Itachi has a stylish sculpt by Kyousuke Arai which depicts his fierce expression and has him posed in an exciting action pose as if he’s just about to launch himself into attack at any moment. Even the tree trunk and his kunai and sword combo are realistically sculpted, and he even comes with interchangeable expressions so you can display him with his Sharingan eyes.

■ About the G.E.M. Series
Launched in 2009, the G.E.M Series is a collection of 1/8th scale figures of popular characters from anime and manga aimed at female collectors. “G.E.M” has two meanings - the first being “gem” as the figures become much sought-after pieces of treasure, and the other derives from “Girl’s Excellent Model” which reflects the range’s female focus and high quality approach.

■ About Naruto Shippuden
*Naruto* is the story of the titular Naruto Uzumaki - an aspiring ninja with a nine-tailed fox sealed inside him who has his sights set on becoming “Hokage,” or the greatest ninja of them all - and his friends as they grow up together undergoing various trials and tribulations along the way.

The original manga was published in Weekly Shonen Jump until 2014, and sales of the collected volume have exceeded 140 million copies. The Naruto anime adaptation was broadcast on TV Tokyo from 2002 to 2007 and was then followed by a sequel, Naruto Shippuden, which is still airing.
