Following up on my last post, this is the original Playmates Usagi Yojimbo action figure from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line, first released in 1989.
I recently acquired this guy for my collection, having previous to now only owned the more modern (and more Sakai accurate) TMNT Usagi Yojimbo.
This version of Usagi is pretty far off from Stan Sakai's art; I think he actually appeared in the old TMNT cartoon looking like this.
Still, an angry rabbit with Samurai swords is an impressive sight.
I do like the Samurai armor this Usagi Yojimbo is sporting, which looks a lot like the cover of Usagi Yojimbo Book 1. A neat custom which I'm sure someone has already done somewhere in the world would be this body with the more recent action figure's head. But it won't be done by me, I only have one of each!
On his butt it says "1989 Stan Sakai Playmates Toys" which is awesome because it gives creator credit right there on the toy! No mistaking who created this wabbit - WTG Stan!
