Prime 1 Studio‘s popular statue series “Premium Masterline” has launched a 1/4 scale statue of Andromeda Shun (Final Bronze Cloth version), one of the five protagonists of the Bronze Saints in the classic Saint Seiya anime series. Its redesigned realistic style is full of details, and the spatial vortex of Andromeda Nebula in the statue can also be lighted-up, the effect is cool and very dreamy! let’s take a look!
The Bronze Saint Andromeda Shun, the younger brother of Phoenix Ikki, hides an extremely powerful force under her delicate and graceful appearance.
He has always hated fighting, treated others gently, and sometimes would rather sacrifice himself to help others. But as a Saint Seiya, he will also stand up to meet powerful enemies at critical moments. He is arguably one of the strongest in the entire series.
This Andromeda Shun statue uses a 1/4 scale, its total height is 56.9cm, approx. 22.4 inches. The overall weight is about 10.8 kg.
And it belongs to the Premium Masterline Series of Prime 1 Studio.
The appearance of the statue is based on Shun wearing the Final Bronze Cloth in the original anime series, and the posture is designed with the attack action of the Nebula Chain being unleashed. Matched with the special effects of the base and the details of the spirally flying Nebula Chain, the visual effect is pretty good.
This statue is also a unique style that reappeared on the basis of the Final Bronze Cloth appearance, combined with the original animation and modern aesthetics.
Prime 1 Studio has added a lot of details to this Shun’s Final Bronze Cloth, and it is very delicate with a strong texture of metallic paint.
The lining of the suit with fabric and tailoring details simulates the texture of the real material, taking the expressiveness of this statue to a higher level.
The surface structure of the pink armor is superimposed layer by layer, and the surface gloss is also very good.
If you look closely, you can also see the battle damage marks all over the surface of the armor. These added small details are very realistic.
The tensile modeling of Shun’s body is not bad, and there are details of Nebula chains around his body.
The Nebula Chains circled down from Shun’s two arms, and formed an S-shaped spiral curve around the body that integrated offense and defense.
The metallic color painting on the Nebula chain also has a good performance.
This Andromeda Shun statue is equipped with two head sculpts, in addition to the original serious expression, it also comes with a swappable head with an angry shouting expression.
You can change them according to your own preferences. It is worth mentioning that the appearance of the angry shouting expression match with the arms extending forward has a very visual impact.
The fluttering green hair has a distinct layering, and the color matching with the pink armor is very beautiful.
One of the highlights of this statue is the base, which features the spiraling Andromeda Nebula.
The Andromeda Nebula’s spatial vortex center has built-in LEDs, and the LED-illuminated effect is super dreamy and gorgeous!
With the spiral nebula and the gradient painting, there is even an illusion of being in an unfathomable space under the dark light.
In addition to the Andromeda Nebula, details such as the rubble splashing and energy waves on the base can also set off the tense atmosphere of the battle and add a lot of dynamics.
If you pre-order this Andromeda Shun statue in advance, you will also get a cool Bonus Part: an extra Anime version swappable head sculpt!
Carefully compare these three head sculpts, you will find that the eyes and facial features of this bonus head sculpt are close to the anime image.
After replacing this anime version head sculpt, the effect displayed by the entire Andromeda Shun statue will bring you a new feeling.
If you are a big fan of Saint Seiya and like Andromeda Shun very much, I believe you will be very interested in this statue.
