Haha same here. Can't handle too many at the same time, cost and space are the real limitations for us.

Awesome collection there Mirak!

I used to, but I never thought they were worth the price so I ended up selling all of them and never bothering with them again, especially after the EX disappointed me too. I may, however, try to go for one of the 1/6 ones some time. Poseidon if I can find him cheap.

Hi - I collect the new Myth Cloth Ex line. Very nice in my opinion. I have the gold saints virgo, lion, gemini and ram. I am only disappointed with ram because his long hair interferes with the armor which means he is constantly looking down! I was not aware that they had 1/6 Seiya figure - who makes them and where to get them?

Bandai made them. So far there's Sagitarius Seiya and Poseidon. There's some Protos of Aquarius Cygnus and Virgo Shun, not sure if that's coming out at all.

So far they have been heavily discounted and are still available at around 10-11k yen the last time I saw. bandai made em btw, I own Seiya, and he's great.

I used to have all the original figs int he 80s but 'lost' them somehow.

I since have been collecting the EX version and they are very much superior. I have all of them except Aphrodite.

Hello peeps. I wanted to share my current Saint Seiya Myth Cloth collection with y'all. I have been collecting Myth Cloths for about 4 years. I really haven't try to get every character, just the ones I like. My favorite characters are Pegasus Seiya and Andromeda Shun. I managed to find Poseidon Crown Cloth for 190 bucks and he became my first 1/6 figure. Now, I have a Hot Toys Iron Man Mark II figure and I have Selina on the way. I need a new shelf display. :lol

Has anyone seen the new Legend of Sanctuary movie yet? I know it just released in Japan but sometimes people seem to be able to see early previews. Anyway, I really love the new designs and Bandai is making new figures based off of the movie. The weird thing is that they had prototypes for Pegasus Seiya and Sagittarius Aiolos going around first at the shows and in magazines but now the first figure released will be Gemini Saga? It looks cool and all but why is this the first figure from the movie instead of Pegasus Seiya? Does anyone know if they will still release Seiya?

Hey hey! I am sure that it's only a matter of time before the new movie is available online. I have spent the last few days looking to see if I find the movie anywhere but no luck yet. I am really excited to see this new movie, although, some reviews talk about it just being an OK movie and how it is under performing in Japan, at the box office.


As per your questions about the release of Seiya and Sagittarius Cloth's, it really is up to Bandai on whether they'll release these figures. In my opinion, I think they will. As to why they're releasing Saga first, is beyond me. Depending on how much Saga costs, I'll more likely buy him. I have also seen that they are going to release an EX version of Saga from the movie, as a special edition. I would definitely buy the Special Edition EX version of Saga, since those will cost a lot later. Anyways, I hope this helped you. I have been collecting Myth Cloth's since 2008 and I keep up with a facebook page called "Saint Cloth Myth (Bandai)" They always have information about new releases and is your best way to finding out what's coming out. Have a good one!

Thanks SaintSeiya! I'll have to check out the Facebook page. I also heard the movie is not doing as good as expected so I'm worried other figures from this line won't get a chance. I'm going to buy Gemini in hopes of getting Seiya next. The one reason I can think of as to why they are not releasing Seiya first is the head sculpt. Since the first few previews of the movie started leaking they have changed his face to look more traditionally anime than it looked at first. Bandai might have had to go back and do a whole new different face sculpt to match the new anime version. They would also have to change the new helmet and headband add-ons as well. It might be the same with Sagittarius but I can't tell. Seiya's face is really different though and I like the more anime version so if that's the reason for the delay that's good. Here's hoping! I'm not the biggest Seiya fan but I've kept up on most of the basic stuff. Omega started out ok but I've lost interest. The new CGI designs for Sanctuary caught my eye though and I think the toys look great. Why do a lot of fans seem to really hate the new stuff from the movie? Is it the GCI? Do you think the different looks would be more accepted if they were rendered as a traditional anime?

I also think the reason they are not releasing the Seiya Myth Cloth first is because of the head sculp, so hopefully they improve it.
I think fans of anything don't like their beloved franchises to be changed to the point of being unrecognizable. In regards to Legend of Sanctuary, the story has been changed and the armors have been changed and that's what upsets fans of the original Saint Seiya series. I am happy as long there is new Saint Seiya stuff coming out. I grew up with Saint Seiya and I loved the Hades Chapter as well as Lost Canvas. Saint Seiya Omega took me a while to get into but I followed it to the end and liked it. I actually ordered the Sagittarius Seiya Omega Myth Cloth and should be getting it by Tuesday. I definitely think fans would have been happier with more traditional cloth designs but we've already seen those designs for the past 20 years or so, so it's good that they did something different. I don't think CGI has anything to do with the acceptance of the movie, just the plot and the designs.

I am also considering getting in to this line although I still consider the new ex versions of the classic anime design to be the best. You said that an ex version of this was comming out what is the difference between the two. I have seen the designs for this movie most dont look bad , but I notice that lybria is missing I guess since he really does not make an appearance till later in the anime they have not included him. Shame I would want the full set of 12 gold saints.

On another note do you think they will continue to make ex figure after they release taurus and aquarious. I bought the weysreter ramadhus ex but I am not sure if they will continue with this line.

davehammer

I really doubt they are gonna do all the characters from the Legend of Sanctuary movie, probably do a few popular ones after Gemini and stop there. Kinda like LoC, Omega and the Crown line.

For the EX line, they will likely do the other gold saints in surplice (Capricorn surplice has already been confirmed) and the other 2 judges of hell. By the looks of it, they are going to continue to do more Hades chapter characters for the EX line.

i have a question, how big a difference are the ex models from the regular ones? its late in the game to start collecting at a fair price, but i can get the 12 regular gold sainst for 900 dollars or so new with some busts, while some of the ex versions go for 200-400 a piece......
are the regular ones worth collecting, or too outdated at this point?
thanks

Yes, the regular Gold Saints are outdated in almost every aspect (design, body, head, material, paint, accessory...). Aside from being a completionist or for the nostalgic value, I don't see any apparent reason to keep collecting the regular Gold Saints.

But if you look beyond the Gold Saints, the regular Cloth Myth line is still alive and well. The newer products adopted better body and are well made, they don't look too inferior when standing next to the EX figures, and most importantly some of them may never get a EX release, so definitely keep your eyes (and wallet) open for the new regular release.

Back to the EX figures, unfortunately you are a bit late to the game (for the Gold Saints), some of the earlier releases will be difficult to find, especially that famed Gemini (both the Saga and Kanon version). But the hope is not all lost. There have been several re-release on popular EX figures (Sagittarius, Aries, Libra in recent memory). When that happens, you can get the figure at a very reasonable price. The key for collecting EX figure is to put in your pre-order FAST & EARLY.

If you really don't want to pay the premium to get the EX figure, one last alternative is to get those replica kits produced by some Chinese companies, when put together, they look actually pretty good (from two feet away, that is). They are extremely affordable and close to the EX figure in terms of design.

I suggest everyone whos looking for Gemini to wait. I asked a Tamashii rep a while ago and they told me that they will eventually come to Gemini again to rerelease him. So anyone who missed out one, or any other character, to just be patient since it'll be rerelased sooner or later.

davehammer
09-12-2014, 01:03 AM
I hope that is the case, been wanting the gold cloth Gemini for ages, I just can't convince myself to pay the current after market price for something that was only around 7000 yen :impatient:

thanks guys, i took the plunge, i started buying them, i will have all of them sans geminis, andromeda and hyoga in about a week, already have shura and cancer in my hands and i fell in love.
they are really nice, and saint seiya is insanely popular in my country, the upcoming movie will make many of these impossible to find, so way i figure the 2 grand i spent is not entirely lost, and only paid premium on leo, escorpion and virgo.

another question, how likely is this line to continue? are there chances to see the v1 bronze saints, plain cloths and major characters like poseidon? or in its defect are the v1 armors comparable in quality and size to the ex versions? talking abot bronze and not gold
thanks again for your help

Just mind you the EX line has plastic quality paint issues, try not to overplay with Virgo to say the least, the paint melted on my plastic areas.

So far the rumor mill is Hades Judges and that's it, first it was the Bronze V2, then Gold Saints, but they expanded to Wyvern Radamanthys and Gemini Saga Spectre, this month Shura Capricorn Surplice will be released so no one knows how far the line will go, mind you with Original Color Editions of the gold saints and Pegasus, Poseidon line is up in the air.

Bootleg Asian companies have been releasing EX customs of certain characters, which is why bandai is hurrying it up to catch up.

A lot of people I know will quit buying them after the gold saints line is complete. But I have every myth cloth known to saint seiya so I will see what's up.

thanks for the advice, i notced as soon as i chipped a bit of paint from the abdomen part of piscis, im also very wary of pegasus helmet, im afraid it will break same with capricorns horns and helmet in general, they llok really flimsy..

havent recieved most of them, and i will hold until december to buy a saga, not only will i have more money, but i hope it will get a release announcement.

im kinda bummed that the plastic parts are the same type of paint and plastic like the 80's saint seiya figures, the other thing is that the piece that joins the belts seems like it doesnt fit quite well in any of the figures, so im afraid it will fall and cause the figure to colapse, i need to find some bases..

PSA: for those that get Taurus, he is a very cool figure and heavy, hjust watch the arms, not sure if its mine or if all of them are going to be like that, but arms seem to get really stuck, when you put the folded arms, it is very likely you will leave behind the top part, i say this, because mine are really, really tight, so im thinking someone could break his shoulder/wear it off by pulling the arm.

apart from that nice figure, he is huge , and has a very easy to assemble and cool object.

davehammer

Taurus is a beast!

I love it!

Everything that is suppose to be metal is metal, amazing build quality.
Good range of accessories.
My only complaint is that either the skirt is too thick or the abdomen is too thin, it kinda looks like he is wearing some big golden diapers
Most EX gold saints have this problem but perhaps him being bigger just makes it more prominent.
Also the cape is just reused from the other gold saints but it looks a bit small on Taurus.

Here are a few pics of mine :)

LOL dave, that is the main chief complaint of the saint seiya myth ex line, compared to myth vintage the myth ex line figures have the thinnest waist, so if you look and compare the armors you will notice many oversize chests and skirts. I like it, it justs means it is more mobile in that sense.

too bad i have to store them until i finish building my showroom (and get an actual camera)....

question, does anyone know how to fix loose belt pieces? virgos belt front piece is incredibly loose, touch it and it will fall, i was thinking a dab of glue on the plastic connecting piece to make it thicker and connect beter, but i dont want to mess with these too much.

i also have a loose capricorns helmet, loose front helmet piece for dragon and virgo and a broken hand for the sagitarius object (i didnt do anyhting rough to it, it snaped while gently slipping the bow), also taurus forearms are really tight, not even warm water worked that well, and to my sadness, the seiya v1 LC model i got has plastic instead of metal, which was a bit of a bummer.

anyways better quality control than both vegeta figuarts combined

I don't love this new line but I don't hate it neither.
Picked up Saint Cloth Legend Gemini Saga mainly cause he was cheap.
Ones without the EX tokens are only around $35USD a PC in HK at the moment :lol
It seems the scalpers are counting on the EX gold/surplice repaint to go for what the original EX Gemini Saga or Kanon are going for these days on the after market.

Not bad for a diecast figure this size and quality

I don't love this new line but I don't hate it neither.
Picked up Saint Cloth Legend Gemini Saga mainly cause he was cheap.
Ones without the EX tokens are only around $35USD a PC in HK at the moment :lol
It seems the scalpers are counting on the EX gold/surplice repaint to go for what the original EX Gemini Saga or Kanon are going for these days on the after market.

Not bad for a diecast figure this size and quality

No Idea bro :dunno


SOG Gold Saints and Poseidon generals are the only clue so far.

The truth is that the EX line has so many fans and detractors equally, and there are many Chinese companies (Galactic Nebula, LC Models, Toyzone..) doing Bootlegs EX figures . IMO Bandai dont even know for certain their future plans (long-term future i mean) for the EX line..

A little disappointed that Sorento Siren got the 'tamashi web exclusive' treatment..... Would anyone know why Bandai would do that? surprises me because this guy is a main in the poseidon arch.

Wow - you seriously get two of each!!! That is insane! I get one of each and they take enough space as is. With the original 12 gold saints and the new soul of gold saints coming up these guys will take a lot of space. Good for you displaying all that though. Must look epic.

Does anyone here have a Hypnos figure? I'm wondering how good of a figure he is. I've been thinking about buying one, but before shelling out the money for him I'd like to know if he is worth buying. I've also been thinking about getting Thanatos to go with him, but I'm unsure about him.

Also, what are some of the best figures by Bandai? I don't have any but I'd like to buy some and start collecting them. I ordered a KO Saga Legend of Sanctuary version figure. I wanted the real one but I wasn't willing to pay $200 for it.

I just got my first Saint Seiya figure in the mail today. Hypnos is pretty cool in person. He looks better than in the 2 cellphone pics I took. I like this figure and I had fun putting everything together for both modes. The details are pretty nice and the paint apps are perfect. There's none of that paint slop like you find on American released figures. Of course that can be said for pretty much any Japanese figure I've ever bought. He has a nice amount of heft to him thanks to the diecast parts. One complaint I have is putting the feet and hands on after putting all of the armor on is kind of tricky. I say that because the arms or legs won't stay straight easily while trying to pop the hands and feet in place. I think the joints on this figure could be a bit tighter, but otherwise it is pretty good. This isn't really a figure you can play with once all of the armor is in place because it hinders the movement. The legs are the worst part because the skirt blocks them from being moved much at all. I also wish the "tails" on the back were tighter. Some of them stay in place just fine, while a couple of the others tend to fall out of the pose I put them in, and it is hard to get them to stay in place. Also, I do hope the figure stands I ordered arrive sooner rather than later because I don't want the figure to fall over. He seems sturdy, but I'd hate for him to fall over and parts go flying everywhere. That happened once already while I was putting the figure together.

I have several more Saint Seiya figures on the way. Pharaoh, Hades, Thanatos, and Saga are the ones I've bought besides Hypnos. I've made a list of others I want and told my wife I'd take any of them for Christmas. So maybe she'll pick one or two out to buy me.

So is Bandai going to make all 12 god gold clothes from Soul of Gold? I've never seen that series so not even sure if all 12 even get god gold armor. I'm trying to decide if I should get into the old version ex gold or this new god gold armor. Also, with the ex line, do they tower over the older figures from Hades and poseidon arc?

They are releasing all twelve God Cloth Gold Saints, the 12 were all previewed at the latest Tamashii Nations a couple days ago. They also previewed the big villain in armor (no spoiler) and they also have Odin Robe Aiolia on pre-order for a 2016 release.

I have all the Gold Saints EX and they are slightly taller (little over a centimeter maybe) than the older figures, but I would definitely not say they're towering above the rest. I have the EX in a display and older classic MC figures in other displays and you cannot even tell the difference of height from one display to the next. I wouldn't worry about that.

It'll cost ya. I started collecting Myth Cloth back in 2003 and I have every single one (except the Steel Saints because I despise those characters, and the Surplice Silver Saints because they were terrible recolors of not so great armors to begin with). I can only begin to imagine the prices for some of those on the aftermarket, considering how much it ended up costing me to get all this at retail price over the years.

There's my collection.

Yeah, I been collecting those since 2003 and I have almost everything (I purposely skipped the Steel Saints because I never liked those characters, and a couple Surplice Silver Saints I didn't like much either), but since the pace of releases slowed down dramatically these last couple years, I started to branch out on some unlicensed products, mostly polystone Silver Saints and Spectres. I also got some customized clothes for some characters, and still awaiting some more (tailoring is a slow process I'm told!). I beat around the bush for a while before jumping into the Soul of Gold series, but now I've gotten the first 2 I'm down for the full line up, including potential new God Warriors.

Cheers!

Shelves are IKEA Liatorp, not sure if they're available worldwide, I live in France.

The Soul of Gold figures are beautifully crafted and look really impressive, but in my humble opinion it comes down to how much you'll enjoy this new anime. Personnally, I'm a huge fan since early childhood of the classic Saint Seiya anime (it was already huge in France back in the end of the 80's) so the Sanctuary/Asgard/Poseidon chapters are what resonates the most to me and why I have the most figures of those chapters. Hades is a classic too because it was always part of the manga but it's less nostalgic to me, but I still got a lot in it. Soul of Gold on the other hand is a totally new thing, is a mini series (13 episodes only) and it has a lot less nostalgic impact, while at the same time having the most expensive figures ever released (some of those God Cloth Gold Saints are reaching propesterous prices).. Personnally, I was on the fence for a long time, then I recently gave in and got Leo and Aries, and now I'm in for the whole line, because while they're new designs and don't give me that good nostalgic vibe, they're still the old characters I love (Gold Saints) and it takes place in Asgard (with some familiar faces), and my wife and I both liked the mini series well enough..

My advice though, don't pay the crazy prices for some of the SoG figures on eBay right now, just look for restocks on japanese sites every now and then to get them fairly close to retail price. Don't feed the scalpers.

Which Japanese sites do you suggest? Cheers

The few times I bought my figures straight from Japan (because for some reason they tend to paint a big flashing target on my packages for the customs officer to sink their claws into) I ordered them from hobbylinkjapan.

I don't much like japanese sites anymore because some of the more known ones tend to have a policy of non-cancellation that I despise.

Personnally I'm lucky enough to have a friend here in France that's a professionnal retailer for Cosmic, the EU branch that sells Bandai products (similar to Bluefin in the US). So I just get everything from him, even if it's sometimes a month or two later than people that ordered on japanese sites.

As for japanese sites I use HLJ and CDJapan for regular entries and Nippon-Yasan for tamashii web exclusives.
Unfortunately yeah, in France CDJapan or HLJ parcel => customs, 100% of the time. NY marks their products down so they go undetected most of the time.

Nothing official. Since they already made two Poseidon characters, it seems likely they would do the others but Sea Dragon and Siren are by far the most popular so they did not take big risks with those. As for Hades, again Radamanthis is the most popular Judge, but I suppose they may also do Aiacos and Minos. I really really doubt they'll ever do the EX Spectres.

Orpheus is already a small MC to begin with, he doesn't scale that well with the regular golds IMO, so he will look very small if you place him next to EX golds. The figure itself is not bad at all quality or sculpt-wise, so if you manage to pose him in a more creative way (i.e. not just standing next to Aldebaran but rather on a raiser, or kneeling or something) that could work fine.

They're releasing Silver Saint Sagitta Tremy/Ptolemy in January, and they've shown prototypes for at least one more Spectre, Rune Balrog. Beyond that, the only releases planned for now are Soul of Gold EX Gold Saints and Loki, plus some Figuarts Zero type figures of the new characters in clothes without armor, similar to the Dragonball Z Zero line.

Thanks. None of that really inspires me. I have all ththe gold saints and the 5 bronze saints. I am thinking of getting Shion and the pope figure to display. Do you guys have any other suggestions? What do you think are the best figures aside from the gold and bronze saints?

I have 99% of the figures released so far (I skipped the Steel Saints because I don't like them, I skipped the Surplice Silver Saints because they were poor recolors, and I skipped some of the special recolors that never appeared in animé or manga such as V1 Gold or the OCE editions), so I may be biaised when it comes to telling people what figures they should get, but I've always had a soft spot for the Asgard God Warriors. The figures are much more colorful than usual characters in the Myth Cloth line, and they are a nice change amidst all the gold. Probably hard to find nowadays though, at least for some of them.

How about Thanatos and Hypnos and Hades as a bad guy display. Are those nice figures? Cheers.

They look great and are really imposing as far as armors go, but they don't bring in the same nostalgia level as the classic characters of the old animé series. That said, I have them in both character and armor forms and I am very happy with them. Beware though, a bunch of Hypnos faces tend to have a cross-eyed look with the golden irises. Some more noticeable than others.

All of the Hades characters are great and they look good together. I even got the EX Gemini, Deathmask, and Capricorn surplice. Waiting on Pisces and Aquarius EX surplice. I actually don't like the Asgard guys cause they never appeared in the manga.

Anyone know any sites with reviews of the bootlegs brands? Thinking about whether or not great toys/MC is worth getting

I don't know any particular websites for the reviews, but I own quite a few custom polystone statues released by various manufacturers (mostly Folei) in recent years, many Silver Saints and Spectres that were never / will never be released and the quality is usually very good, though they've gotten a bit pricy lately.

As for actual bootlegs of existing figures, the only one I own is Soul of Gold Leo Aiolia, and the quality is top notch. It's virtually identical to the official figure, but also includes an effects part (Lightning) and an extra face (with Ymirjar mark, like the anime series). I was very happy with my purchase and it ended up costing about 60% of the official figure's price.

I'm getting the rest of them in official releases though because the bootlegs are not coming for a good long while it seems, and I only went for Aiolia because I missed the boat on them at first (took too long to decide wether to jump in for this extra line or not)..

Hope that helps!

As far as looks go, yeah i think they look on par with the official releases for sure.

Most of the recent stickers are custom made because Bandai didn't really follow up on the stickers inside boxes (previously they were available in the premium figure boxes, like the Pope had all the stickers for the Gold Saints inside his box).

There are a few collectors forums out there where you can find printing patterns for the name stickers.

Just check ebay or amazon. Sometimes you can find some good deals. Yeah, there's a ton of knockoffs. Companies called Galactic Nebula, CS Model, Metal Club, and others are all bootlegs. Just check for the official Bandai label in the lower right corner of the box and look for the official Toei sticker.

I would say get Leo first, because he's the first one released. There was a re-issue, but it's still getting more rare. Virgo is probably the 2nd one you should get, as Aries and Cancer are easily found.

as a noob is the anime the last canvas a good starting point, is kinda a high budget retelling of entire story yeah? or go direct to knights of the zodiac anime which i saw abit of on cartoon network i think wayyy back or the manga? some of the usa translated release vols of the manga seem abit pricey now, like vol 1 unfortunately.

@illproxy -The ex figures are the 2nd version of the armor. The original anime versions are expensive. The ex ones are good. As far as anime go, Lost Canvas is a prequel to the original series but it was cancelled so Lost Canvas has a huge cliffhanger. You can watch the original Sanctuary saga(minus the Poseidon saga) and the Hades saga on Crunchyroll.com

I've been collecting this line since 2004, but most releases these days are reissues or variants of existing figures, and the prices have tripled, so it's to be expected there's less craze to get them nowadays, this late into the collection and with many lines started but not finished..

2-3 years ago I started collecting the the EX figures & it's addicting to the point where you have to draw the line.


I saw the Hyoga Aquarius armor & I'm still struggling whether or not I should pick it up because it'll go along the Poseidon setup but at the same time I don't want reused armor from the Gold Saints.

I put out an order through FromJapan & I got a cancellation email because they exceeded the number limit p-bandai had for them so that's good.
