I have been a fan of the Ronin Warriors series for the better part of 15 years now; in fact RW was what introduced me to Anime. I find it somewhat disheartening that no one else seems to remember the show. Anyways to pay tribute to one of my all time favorite anime’s; I have recently made the show’s main antagonist Tapla. Talpa started out as a Final Fantasy XII Judge Master Gabranth. The main part of his armor (from shoulders to hip guards) is from a Sigma 6 Storm Shadow that has been highly sculpted over. The vast majority of the head with the exception of the blades is sculpted. The armor on the forearms and feet are sculpted and also use parts from Storm Shadow. The hair is string that has been super-glued to keep it straight. The toes are from the same Storm Shadow and all of the blades/swords and knee guards are from the original Talpa figure from the 90’s. I have never attempted anything this sculpting intense so please be gentle if you should leave any feedback.
Thanks for looking

Thanks for the compliments guys. Trigun, your best bet for finding the figures is a website, or maybe you might get lucky if you go to a flea market or a place that specializes in anime figures. As far as the dvd's, I'd say FYE, or a website.

Hello,
That's real cool. Ronin Warriors aka Yoroiden samurai troopers is without a doubt a must make in the future. I wanna try all of them out. You did real good on this one. It remind me why I love to custom. You know I got all the dvds I can't wait to see some more Ronin warriors custom. Super job on Talpa/Arago.
Take Care

I am insulted. I remember the Ronin Warriors and I do credit them for getting me in to anime as well. I was really heart broken when they took that show of the U.S. air but that is for me and my therapist. Anyways, awesome job on figure.
