Anyone remembers this show? Also known as mecha Seiya, I think it's Masami Kurumada's best work but unfortunately, due to its similarities will always be overshadowed by Saint Seiya.

Anyways, this is a fairly old figure (from 1997 or so) made by Takara which is a hybrid between an action figure and a plamo, as all the armor plates come in runners, so you cut them off and cover the entire body of X.
The kit is fairly detailed and quite big. It includes plenty of LEDs to light up the eyes, a sensor in the forehead, the chest and even sections of the legs. The most important feature is the sliding mechanism in the wings that reveal the hidden feathers, just like in the series.

The figure is quite heavy and I had no proper base to display it, so I ended up using a pair of tweezers on a clothes hanger to make myself a homemade display base for X and I was fairly satisfied with the result.

Feel free to visit my blog for more info and pics of this kit.
