    This line has been around for years and I am just discovering it now.
    It looks like a wonderful series of SHINY figures but the price point is a tad on the high side.
    Would anyone like to share their experiences with the series if they have any?

    i have gemini saga, areis mu and dragon shiryu V3. They look great as display figures. articulations are limited with the myth cloth armour. the figures i have are pretty heavy especially Gemini because most of the myth cloth pieces are made of die cast. my advice is to pick up the ones you like.

    my next purchase is gonna be Ikki phoenix.

    I have Gemini Saga, Pegasus Seiya (V2, V3 and God Cloth), Dragon Shiryu V3 and Sagitarius Airos. Awesome figures but heavy. Its hard for them to hold their poses for a long time so its best to get the Bandai stands (which I dont have :( ).

    Dang, mostly die-cast eh.
    How heavy are these things?

    And is there a site with some more of these reviewed? I could only find the ones on Collection DX.

    Thanks for the quick links. Now to do some research :) .

    Granted I've only seen the first Ep of Lost Canvas but why is Tenma's armor Blue? I thought it was Silver.

    Artistic touch. Seiya's God Cloth is supposed to be Silver as well but its mostly really faint blue.

    I bought the zodiac sign for wife and myself (Aquarius Camus and Gemini Saga) Also V2 and V3 of Seiya, V3 of Shiryu, can't forget the goodness that's Libra Dohko. I got the plain clothed Seiya and Shiryu from the Appendix line, also the Camus and Seiya bust from the Appendix line to replace Camus' original ugly face. And then there is the Crystal Knight. Eventually I'll hunt down the rest of the V3 guys when I have more dough and display space.

    I haven't read Lost Canvas yet, is it any good? I really don't like his original armor though, and Tenma sounds like Pegasus in Mandarin, I thought that was kinda lame.

    Well I've actually only seen the Lost Canvas OVA so far but I've heard the Manga is great. Unfortunately English subs for Saint Seiya are rare. Does anyone know of any English subbing group for Saint Seiya? My knowledge of Saint Seiya only extend as far as the Knight of the Zodiac dub. :( 

    And I've decided to try to find one of these guys. I'm not even an Aries but the Scorpio looked meh.

    Thats because Tenma translates to Heaven Horse which is what the chinese translate Pegasus as.

    I'd get the Virgo Shaka (Which is my sign), but since it's one of the first made, I can't bring myself to get him, since it doesn't look that good as the later ones. I'm going to try to find a Gemini Saga/Gemini Saga Surplice at a decent price, though. And a Libra Dohko, a Aquarius Camus Surplice......... Man, I'm going to need to get a lot more money.

    Virgo Shaka has an apendix set that has a better head sculpt.

    No idea. Truth be told, none of my Myth Cloths were bought online. They were all bought in Hong Kong the last two or three times I went. Try HLj (though I think they mostly have the new stuff).
