My Collection: Akatsuki Chibi-style figurines

Went CSC last Sunday and got myself this set of Akatsuki Chibi style figurines. Ok first of all, I do not know who manufactured this because I have not seen any of this available in the market. It could be a bootleg or a custom done by some unknown company. But nevertheless, I still bought them because I have always wanted to collect all the figures of Naruto characters. Since the Akatsuki Team work in a team of 2, I will intro them, 2 by 2.

Team Itachi and Kisame
This is the first team of pair that appears in the anime. During that time, the Akatsuki team was still very mysterious to me, thus I was quite amazed when there are two skillful ninjas appeared in the anime.

Team Deidara and Sasori
According to source, these two were grouped together because of their passion for art… Anyway, this is quite an impressive team, even though they were defeated by Kakashi and Chiyo baa-san.

Team Kakuzu and Hidan
Formed by two ninjas who had the ability to made themselves immortal. This is one of the deadliest team which killed Asuma, one of the Jounin from Konoha. But also because of them, both Naruto and Shikamuru had proved themselves to be ready for the battle against Akatsuki.

Team Pain and Konan 
Both Pain and Konan was once disciple of Jiraiya. After Jiraiya leave them, they joined the Amegakure and eventually found Akatsuki. Pain is the acting leader of Akatsuki, where the actual leader was revealed to be Tobi.

Zetsu and Tobi
Although Zetsu did not joined any team, but his splitting personalities makes him as effectively as a two man team.While Tobi did join with Deidara for awhile after Sasori is dead. He is the actual leader of Akatsuki and later revealed his true identity as Obito Uchiha.

It remains was unclear why Orochimaru joined Akatsuki, throughout his stay, he was partnered with Sasori.  When Itachi Uchiha joined Akatsuki after conducting the Uchiha clan massacre, Orochimaru saw his opportunity to steal his body to gain possession of the Sharingan. This was stopped by Itachi, while also cutting Orchimaru's left hand off to prevent him from breaking the genjutsu he was under. This lead to him leaving Akatsuki to acquire a new body.

We have come to the end of this post and thanks for the viewing. Last but not least, a group photo of the figurines!
