Paint Job – 9
The paint job is perfect and accurate. From Orochimaru’s perfect hair job to the amazing job they did with the shading. Even the eyes have soul, and capture the essence of Orochimaru, that of a snake seeking it’s prey.

The sculptor, Cyril Fraudja, really knows his stuff. The snake looks very precise and Orochimaru’s pose looks fluid. The sword is very detailed. The sculpting is mind-blowing

Designed to perception. Orochimaru’s pale face, snake eyes and fanged mouth is just as we like him and the team working on the figurine took this to heart. This is top-notch high skilled work.
Display Worth – 10
It deserves a place in any collection. This level of sculpting skill is worth displaying in every collection
Tsume did it again and this reviewer is very impressed. The figurine is perfect and a winner. I love the intimidating atmosphere of the figurine, as it creates a sense of reality. Orochimaru looks as if he is ready for business, to catch his newest prey to experiment on. It will look great next to other Naruto Shippuden figurines, maybe enacting a scene from the anime. I want one and I am sure you do too, because this figurine is super sugoi!
Now if they can just make a similar figurine where Manda, the snake boss is summoned… man that serpent is huuuuge!
