I'm not a huge fan of the character or the design so this is a pass for me. I do really like the color scheme and how well it is done on the figure though. This has got me excited for the Capricorn Surplice. Assuming it is as high quality as Aries here and I'm sure it will be then Shura is going to be a must buy for me.

Nice review. Just a little

Nice review.
Just a little correction
All six dark gold saint surplices are inspired by their gold cloth but are different. the general shape is the same but all the details are different.
This aspect is what makes this figure really stand out (and I can't wait to get Saga's surplice). Here there's a pic I found of Mu with aries gold cloth and shion with his surplice. you'll notice that the armors are different and not just repainted.

I was wondering about that as I was reading the review. I thought to myself "Why did they just recolor Aries Mu's Cloth when Gemini Saga got a new mold?". Thanks for pointing this out. I could see in the anime that the Gemini Cloth and the Gemini Surplice had some design differences, but I think they are more subtle here.

Love them chops!!!!!!!

I like the purple and black color scheme of Sion's armor. Not to mention his chops! He has one of the more memorable hairstyles in the Saint Seiya mythos.

just got him

i just got sion today and i gotta say i like him alot. fortunately i was able to put him together quite easily, although the rams were hard to put on. he does stand on his own and his joints are really tight. sometimes you do get cloths with defects but it doesn't take away from how cool and shiny they look. thanks for your reviews, i look foward to seeing your review of hypnos even though i have that bad boy already next to his brother. i think i am moving passed denial and i am admitting that i am a hardcore saint seiya fanboy as well as a fan of the myth cloth line.
