Saint Seiya Assorted Group of 9 Gashapons by Bandai


Varios personajes de Saint Seiya decidieron hacer una silenciosa huelga, exigiendo su derecho a ser publicados... 

No tuve más remedio que acceder a sus justas peticiones, aunque les hice claridad que, como era un nutrido grupo, debía ser dividido... 

Su consigna era "Los gashapons unidos, jamás serán vencidos" y la mía "Divide y vencerás". En esta huelga surrealista, ocurre algo que muy rara vez se reproduce en la realidad: todos ganamos y nos divertimos.

He
aquí, otra comitiva de figuras huérfanas de su respectivo set completo, pero con una característica que las une: todas son versiones silver, es decir, todas tienen un llamativo acabado de pintura metalizado, que les da la apariencia de haber sido fabricadas en peltre.

En este grupo se incluye: Hyoga-Cygnus (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 5), Ikki-Phoenix (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 3), Ikki-Phoenix (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 5), Shun-Andromeda (Saint Seiya Maxi
Collection 5), Douko-Libra (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 3), Seiya-Pegasus (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 5), Shaka-Virgo (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 3), Aioria-Leo (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 3) y Miro-Scorpio (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 3). (NOTA: este es el orden en el que aparecen las imágenes individuales, de arriba hacia abajo).

ENGLISH

Several characters from Saint Seiya decided to do a silent strike, demanding their right to be published... 


I had no choice but to accede to their fair demands, but I made it clear that, as they were a large group, they must be divided...  

Their slogan was "The gashapons united, will never be defeated" and mine was "Divide and conquer". In this surreal strike, something happens that is rarely reproduced in the real life: we all win and had fun.

Here, another band of
figures orphan of their respective complete sets, but with a feature that unites them: all are silver versions, I mean, all have a striking metallic paint finish, which gives them the appearance of have been manufactured in pewter.

This group
includes: Hyoga-Cygnus (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 5), Ikki-Phoenix (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 3), Ikki-Phoenix (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 5), Shun-Andromeda (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 5), Douko-Libra (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 3), Seiya-Pegasus (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 5), Shaka-Virgo (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 3), Aioria-Leo (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 3) and Miro-Scorpio (Saint Seiya Maxi Collection 3). (NOTE: this is the order of the individual images, from top to bottom).
