It's a shame that even in a larger scale, they can't get a normal looking figure sculpt. I don't usually complain about the prices of Japanese toys, but you'd think for this much they could do more with this than just essentially scaling up what they already had.

Looks nice armored up though.

Great review Adam!

This is a beautiful large-scale version of the Sagittarius Cloth. When it was announced , I was pretty excited about it. Then I thought about it from a business perspective and I think Bandai really missed the mark with this release. As you mentioned their is a lack of diecast content , which is the signature part of the Saint Cloth Myth line, that goes all the way back to the vintage toys from the 80's. Second, I think it is harder to get people excited about a character that has been released who knows how many times ( many of which I am guilty of buying).

That being said, I will probably pick one up eventually, when I find a good deal on it. Most of the retailers seem to have an abundant stock of the Crown Seiya, so I can play the waiting game with this one.

Athena God Cloth

Also, when Bandai unveiled Shaina, there was mention that the new female saint body would be used for Shaina, Marin, Mermaid Thetis and the Athena God Cloth. Seeing as how we have seen two of the four, I am hoping that Athena in her God Cloth is not too far behind. Though I think we will see Thetis first, since her armor is much simpler.
