Yea, you are right. The

Yea, you are right. The Spiral Zone Gemini seems more akin to the original Saint Cloth Myth Gemini. Those old Saint Seiya toys were pretty cool in their own way though. I have not had a chance to see the Spiral Zone figures person, but I did have the old Pegaus Seiya with the diecast armor.

Wooow, Saga is my favorite

Wooow, Saga is my favorite character! When I saw his first Cloth Myth figure, I fell in love with its lots of pieces. Too bad that the EX version has no Pope accessories. :( The Galaxian Explosion effect part seems to have been exceptionally included as a guilty compensation for that.

To make him even more similar to the show, they could have included hands with golden fingers and a totally blacked out face to simulate his earlier scary dummy illusion (I was really scared by that when I was a child!). But maybe they just designed it like that due to some laziness, since it was not like that on Hades chapter and even his 1987 figure only had his eyes blacked out:

Yeah, his one-faced figure was really sold with the face partially painted black (again because their figures were released before we know the identity of the Saints). Even though, I've always wanted that figure (and would even buy nowadays that charming 1987 version if I had plenty of money!).

It's a wonderful figure, though. The Object is pretty gorgeous. Nice review.

It would be nice if they had included his two hair tones from the manga, which had his bad personality with dark hair instead. It seems Bandai only includes manga variations for the armors, though, releasing figures with different manga colors separately. A crying version for the helmet good face would make a nice Appendix too.
