Ninjas at the Grocery Store

Check out what I found at a Publix grocery store in Lakeland.
"*Cough* *Cough* fresh air!"
"Finally, Freedom!"
"Check out my Power Ranger helmet".
Channeling his inner "Predator".
"You cover my back"
"Hmmpff, he looks to cuddly for a battle cat"
"By the Power of Greyskull!"
Yet, they can look pretty convincing in straight close ups and shots taken from a lower angle. Jungle mission.
"I sense danger"
Forward thrust attack.
Something above?
Reference shots taken from a worm-eye point-of-view.
For inexpensive plastic toys, this Ultimate Ninja Elite set works quite well as drawing reference models. Might want to consider something like this as a gift for the budding artists that still think that ninjas are cool which should include most 7-10 years old IMO.

You wouldn't happen to have the UPC of that box would you? (Or perhaps want to sell the set?)

Sorry. Threw the box out long ago, and my set has been used as reference drawing models in my classes for several terms now, so most of the accessories have been lost. I suspect you might come across them at stores in Chinatown or discount stores that carry mainly Chinese goods without brand recognition.
