They couldn't move around much anyway xD I think they relied on one accurate swing instead of many misses to kill people because of the armor's limitations (mostly generals wore it as ceremonial armor but they still rode out into battle with it). Some of them wore lighter armor though, those are guys with the "cheap-looking" armor. They were are frikkin scary anyway xD

Most Samurai's armor looked "flimsy and cheap". That's how they liked it, that's how they wore it, it was like ceremonial or something. As a real-life custom, this is perfect.

I totally understand dude, and I appreciate the comments. I mean, it is for me to improve ^_^ I used plastic from some bag...hehe...I guess I have to redo him one day, not right now tho, too much work...lol....maybe next time I'll use leather or a thicker piece of plastic...so criticize away! it'll just help me improve ^_^ everyone as well too!

I see where your coming from too man. I just know that you always like some good critisism (am I wrong?) I think this dude kicks bum, tp even have the balls to attempt him makes it good. I didn't mean sculpt..lol.. that would suck I just meant more thick so it wouldn't look wavy. it looks like you backed it with like tape right? maybe that it, not that mine is the best (its not by any means...lol) I backed mine with thin sheats lof leather and then used rubber strips for the top, and shoulder pads are solid plastic, he retains all articulation with ease. this is just some feedback dude, I tottaly dig this guy and the way you use wrestling figs make all your work unique. KEEP IT UP MAN

Nice work GJ..Looks like you put a lot of work into it. I like the "If there was a live action movie, this would be the guy... look"..

I mean it just looks like its made from tape or somthing. kinda flimsy, and not metal. I wouls maybe use stiff foam sheets???? or somthing a little more stiff.

looks preeeety good. Only thing I would say is that I don't really like his chest sunburst and his armor looks kinda cheap. BUT it is a lot better than a lot of Sams I have seen. your getting better dude. your pics are looking better too.
