EX Taurus Aldebaran

Deba-chan is awesome

Our old big unibrowed friend got a beautiful release. The crossed arms are a very nice addition.

Deba-chan is a nice character, too bad he always loses his battles. Allowing Seiya to pass on was a good insight, especially since other presumably more powerful and wise Gold Saints just had no doubt about the Pope until they almost killed our Bronze friends (Shaka, I'm looking at you)..

The funny thing about his old 1987 figure is that his mentioned dark skin tone was not only ignored (probably because of the mass production of Saint Seiya figures), but also he was unexplainably blond (it was pretty strange to see that on TV commercials):

As always, that was a nice review. I've seen some criticism concerning to the height of his cape (they say that it should be bigger and seems to begin halfway on his back). As you didn't even mention it, it seems it's not an issue for you (and seeing his wonderful pictures, neither for me). Besides that, it's odd seeing an EX figure that is actually the same height as his old Cloth Myth version.

At last, the addition of an extra chest plate was a good insight. You can even pretend that is simulating the size changes we always see on the show (which affects both characters and armors). In the beginning, I really thought it was included because of that, lol

How about that. A blonde

How about that. A blonde Aldebaran. Perhaps they went off his hair color in the manga.
