About this deal

Sideshow and Premium Collectibles Studiopresent the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin 1:4 Scale Statue – Supreme Edition. The grip hands on both figures are super tight, but they help the figure hold super tiny accessories like the ninja stars, knives, and bomb. The knives from the unarmored figure actually fit in a little slot in the fist. Inspired by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin, this incredible statue captures the determination and resolve of the last surviving member of the TMNT, Michelangelo, in a bleak alternate future ruled by the Foot Clan. The Last Ronin Statue – Supreme Edition measures 23.5” tall as Michelangelo stalks the sewers in pursuit of his enemies, guided by the ghosts of his brothers. A highly detailed environment base puts the turtle in his native element, with grimy water flowing around rust-colored pipes deep beneath the Foot Clan-controlled city. The statue includes four weapon proximity pieces that can be placed anywhere along the base for an added storytelling element, representing the arsenals of Michelangelo’s fallen brothers as well as his own: a sai, a broken bo staff, a shattered sword, and nunchaku.

We won’t spoil the identity of the titular Last Ronin here. That reveal is a major part of the first issue of the series, and we assume the game will make a big deal out of revealing which of the four characters survives this hellish future. But if you want to know, we’ve got a full breakdown of the first issue of The Last Ronin. The unarmored version comes with three sets of hands (fists, grip and open), a pointy hand, Splinter’s diary, a sai, a broken katana, four knives, nunchaku, two heads (closed mouth, slightly open mouth), a metal tonfa, and a futuristic mouser. Both figures come with a grip of stuff. Armored has a katana with sheathe, sai, nunchakus, bo, four ninja stars, a grenade, goggles, removeable hood, claw on a rope, two heads (yelling and gritted teeth), two removeable bandana parts, three sets of hands (fists, grip, and open) and a tonfa.

Wielding the shattered remnants of his fallen brothers’ weapons, he stands as an enigma, shrouding his identity in mystery.

The breathtaking proximity piece of brothers Leonardo, Raphael, and Donatellois fully sculpted and painted in a spectral teal with white highlights to make the turtle trio stand out against the darkness of the ronin’s stealthy garb. Reaching their hands out to lend strength to their brother, these fallen heroes in a half shell are detailed with intricate costume textures and a base of ghostly wisps encompassing the entire scene. The Last Ronin Statue – Supreme Edition can be displayed with or without this element attached. Without the ghost brothers, the statue measures 20.5” tall. Several types of goods are exempt from being returned; perishable goods such as food, flowers, newspapers or magazines cannot be returned. We also do not accept products that are intimate or sanitary goods, hazardous materials, or flammable liquids or gases.Splinter’s diary has nice detail, and I especially like the leathery texture on the cover, but to fit it in the hand, I had to really heat and stretch the hand open.

Nor is the Ronin entirely alone in his quest. April O’Neil is still alive in this future timeline, and she’s joined by her daughter Casey Marie (named after her late father, Casey Jones). Casey is a budding ninja herself (having read Master Splinter’s books for guidance). While there’s no indication whether she’s in the game, it’s possible Casey could become a secondary playable character in the game. In another nod to 2016’s God of War, Casey could even be the Atreus figure - a semi-playable companion character who joins the Ronin on his quest. This exclusive Funko Pop! figure beautifully captures the intricacies of his character, from the worn-out weapons of his brothers to the steely determination in his eyes. In short, while there’s no reason for The Last Ronin to be a carbon copy of the God of War games, there are many ways in which God of War is a fitting choice of inspiration for this action game. If anyone can match Kratos’ ferocity and rage on the battlefield, it’s the Ronin. Adapting the Story of The Last RoninThe sword is different between the two figures because it gets damaged as part of the story. It’s also got fantastic metallic paints and a nice wash on the handle. It’s easy to see where the God of War influence may come into play. Kratos tends to wield multiple weapon types in those games, with the tone of combat changing dramatically depending on whether Kratos is wielding his trademark Blades of Chaos, his Leviathan war ax or one of the other mystical weapons in his arsenal. The Last Ronin could follow that formula and allow players to switch between these four weapons on the fly.

The NECA Last Ronin figures on the other hand are bonafide masterpieces. Full and accurate encapsulation of the art from the books, fully functional accessories, and logical proportions. The topless figure beautifully captures the wear and sadness of the character. The figures are essentially flawless. The only “flaw” I can force myself to see, is that the topless figure still has the bottom parts of the tunic. The flaps are obviously part of the tunic, not karuta haidate, so they really shouldn’t be there. Outside of that, FLAWLESS.Note: this article was originally published on March 24, 2023 and updated on August 16, 2023 with the latest info about The Last Ronin. Isn’t it amazing when an old favorite gets a fresh twist? That’s precisely what’s happened with “The Last Ronin,” one of the latest entries in the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. If you’ve been swept up by the tidal wave of The Last Ronin’s riveting story, this Funko Pop! figure is a must-have addition to your collection. The open hands on both figures add a nice variety. The flat open hands especially make me want to make some bandanas for the unarmored figure to hold.
