4748 Samurai Special
« on: February 21, 2011, 17:37:35 »
I think many of us are waiting for this anxiously?  ;D I received a few goodies from a german Ebay seller...

I am not familiar with the terminology, perhaps Cheng or Heronimus or WarriorOfToys can help us out here...

But here are the pics!!!

Enjoy!!!










Just to add a few details, the body armour is actually separated into two big pieces. The upper body armour covering chest and back and the lover body armour from the waist down that sits on the torso much like a belt!

I really love seeing these dark grey bracers!!! I could use them on knights too!!!

Samurais wore both sword on their waist but I guess since its difficult to do so on a klicky, the designers had to put one of them hanging at the back...

The yellow pattern on the armour is printed on...a bit disappointing as I expected it to be carved on...

In the end, we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.

thanks for sharing and this very clear review & photos Wolf Knight!  :)
...all I can say is that now my samurai customs are beginning to look very un-Playmobil (which was never my intention)  :-soon I'll be seeing a lot of new samurai customs  ;)
...maybe I have to compromise and interchange parts with him so that they dont look poles apart  :P
