No love for Naruto?

Postby Shoriyuken » Thu Aug 09, 2018 8:11 am

I guess I'm just wondering. Why isn't there more Naruto pops? I mean it's a very long and popular show. One can argue that It has way better story than Dragon ball and first than MHA. With all the Dragon Ball and MHA (my hero academia) love, I'm just wondering why isn't there more Naruto pops? There so much potential out there with a huge variety of characters to choose from. Akatsuki, the legendary sanins, the hokages, and even all the beasts. Wow, I just keep going on and on. Come on Funko can you give me more Naruto pops? Please....

While I am not with you as my love for MHA has surpassed my love for Naruto I am with you that we could use more. I mean atleast I need itachi and I wouldn't mind them spreading into Boruto.

Anyone who knows me understands my love for Naruto. Especially the pops. I really hope this line doesn’t die before I get a Rock Lee pop. The possibilities are endless. I hope this break from the series has been due to some awesome design work for the next wave! One can dream, right!?

Sad to say I think its more to the show finishing. But a Rock Lee pop would look crazy awesome.

I personally want all of the Toads, possibly either with Jiraya or Naruto in Sage mode. But at least 1 each of the giant toads as a 6 or 10 inch.

I totally want more pops from the Naruto line to be made. Particularly wishing for the Sannin to be made - Jiraiya, Tsunade and Orochimaru along with their Sensei the 3rd Hokage!

I agree with all of this, they have only hit the tip of the iceberg with the pops they could unleash from naruto it could expand as much as DBZ has.

Completely agree. Funko is pushing DB and MHA right now because they are the hotness and have the show to push product.

It would definitely help out in the space department too haha. Although, I can see the retailer exclusives being super annoying to finish.

Yeah and the many variations of each character. Going to need a deep wallet and space to collect it all if they ever go that route. Thousand years of death! !!

I agree! It sucks that Naruto finished but Boruto is pretty popular. I don't think it's as popular as DB and MHA right now though. Personally, I wish they had made more Bleach Pop too before the show finished.

I love Naruto and it is simply a matter of time until they make more pops for the show. I also love Friends and it was years between wave 1 and wave 2. I hope that there are eventually 6" versions of all the tailed beasts.

I completely agree with you on this front.

I had a friend post that "My Hero Academia saved anime". Unfortunately this means that I'm reading it with extremely high expectations.

Don't get me wrong, I'm really enjoying MHA, but it is extremely reminiscent to the beginning of Naruto for me. Back when it was a bit more grounded and not just giant energy blasts.

One can argue Naruto has a better story than MHA and DBZ but the truth is it would be a losing argument. Seriously Naruto is still chasing Sasuke which is literally what happens in episode 1.

Agreed, so many characters and all we got was two Ichigos and one Rukia. If they made a Vizard mask Ichigo, I would be so happy.

Agreed. It wouldn’t even take that much work to create Rock Lee. All they would need to do is slap some fuzzy brows on their Bruce Lee pops.

You’re probably right. This happens with a lot of the popular series where fans ask for pops for so long and then complain that there’s too many!

Yeah, the early episodes of Naruto is similar to how MHA is now with a little more depth. Living alone as a child, no parents but with great support, and diligent work ethic. Naruto created a world on its own.

Soooo many pops they can make it's ridiculous. As much as I love Naruto, it would break my wallet trying to collect everything. The akatski pops would be dope to collect them all, along with Madara.

I'd be happy if they at least did the 3 Sannin. And the main Summons (Gamabunta/Manda/Katsuyu), And the Hokages. And the rest of Akatsuki. And the rest of the 6" tailed beasts. Yeah at least those guys.
