ARMOR UP!!!…This custom is one of remembrance as I raced home after high school to catch the latest episode of the Ronin Warriors or Samurai Troopers as the show is known in Japan. The show is about 5 brave young men who are direct descendants of some of Japan’s greatest warriors; these young men appear when great evil threatens the Earth. Enter Talpa, an evil emperor from a Neitherworld dimension with a 1,000,000 year ago grudge against the planet. Leading his immense army are Talpa’s four dark warlords who are also young men caught in the sway of the dark emperor’s evil ways. The 5 Ronin Warriors who live their lives bound by certain jin or benevolences are given powerful suits of samurai armor by said jin…trust, wisdom, virtue, justice, and life to battle this great evil.
The character I chose for this contest is Cale: the dark warlord of corruption. Cale or Anubis as he is known in Japan, is part of Talpa's dark warlords; he wears the armor of jackals, his main weapon is a No-Datchi sword and claw gauntlet, his jin is Obedience.
Cale: the dark warlord of Corruption was made from an HML Ultimate Iron man body, HML 1940's Ultimate Captain America head, ML face-off Red Skull hands, armor parts from the old 1998 playmates Ronin Warriors Cale figure, a random cape, and sculpting.
THE POWER IS IN THE ARMOR … thanks for looking!
