Kanon

Yeah, I don't own a Kanon (other than the head that came with the Gemini Appendix.) Wasn't a favorite character of mine.

Gemini Surplice

Well I got the Capricorn Shura Surplice when it came out and I had been holding off on getting Camus and Saga until now. After I saw your review, I went over to angolz and bought both Saga and Camus to complete the Dark Saint Trinity.

The only thing that perplexes me is why the Saints hair is darker than what it is in the anime. Saga_GX, I own the Kanon Myth Cloth and I can say that Kanons face sculpt looks a little bit more evil, like if he had a smirk. It also comes with an extra face that is darkened from the nose up to simulate a mysterious face when Kanon first appears in the Poseidon Arc. It has a generation 3 body and also comes with an extra body of Kanon in his training cloths. If you do not have the Gemini appendix then you will not be able to display both of Kanon’s bodies with the uncovered face and hair so that’s the only trade off.

I am so glad to see you got some reviews coming out, Atom. Macros aren’t really my thing, although I did like the review about Blurr from the Transformers Animated line. I liked it so much I went out and got one for 13 bucks. I only wish Myth Cloths would cost 13 bucks rather than 5 times that. Keep up the awesome work, Atom and company.

By the way Atom, how can you not like Kanon? he is just as badass as Saga, and his redemption story is just as dramatic as Saga's. I'm just saying...but this is coming from a hardcore Saint Seiya fanboy whose sign is Gemini, lol.

Thanks and Kannon

Thanks for the kind words. I am glad you enjoy the reviews. SCM is a truly stunning line and I do enjoy reviewing them.

As for Kannon. The character never really struck a cord with me. Saga doesn't actually get displayed in my collection as the Gemini Gold Saint. I have him in his Pope attire with the mask and helm on and the Gemini Cloth in Object mode. I thought that Pope Aries "astral-projecting" to control it made more of an impression on me than Saga as the Gold Saint proper.

I wanted him in his Surplice version to display all the characters involved (Leo, Scorpio, Aries, Gemini, Capricorn and Aquarius) in using the Athena Exclamation in Sanctuary. I feel it's one of those moments from the series that really exemplifies what the characters represent and what they where willing to sacrifice. Now if I can just find a Scorpio Milo...
