Image Bank: TRU Exclusive Nikto Guard

By Mike — Friday, September 24, 2010

Now available in Toys R Us stores and online, the TRU exclusive Nikto Guard Puko Naga has been added to our Image Bank. A great figure overall, it does receive a negative point for lack of knee and ankle articulation. As an army or squad builder and at a premium of $10.99, we couldn't ask for anything less.
