I absolutely agree... this is definitely one of the best Samurai figures on the market today. I wanted it for so long and I'm sure I will get it someday although 90 Euro is a lot of dinero.

Anyway, thanks for a very informative review Andrzej. I can tell you love the subject and know a lot about the equipment... great read.

Thanks for reading Mario!
Well - I love the subject, you got me here I have 6 samurai figures and one bust waiting to be painted (I'm always waiting for my skills to improve...).

There's a story with this kit. I've purchased it some time ago (about three months now) but opened it at the beginnign of August. I took the pictures, started to write the review, described all 28 pieces... wait! WHERE THE F$%K is 28th piece?
Shikoro neck guard was missing I've sent e-mail to Pegaso (they were closed for summer shutdown) and waited. After few days Pietro Balloni responded with an email and now the kit is complete
(Fortunately we're dealing with professionals here and I didn't have to search for someone with identical kit to copy the part or to sculpt it by myself...)

Good serveice from Pegaso.

I have to save up to buy one myself. Painting the colorful robe and the armor should be fun.

You should really check the website I've mentioned in references part: there are two parts very usefull for painters - Japanese Armor Manual and History of Japanese Clothing And Accesories.

And I understand what you mean about having several figures in your stash and waiting for your technique to get better... I too feel I'm not good enough to do this one justice. That's why I didn't get it yet.
