    Slamurai - How will you display him?

    I'm debating how I'll display Slamurai.

    The cloth tunic with ninja head is more true to how he'd look as a vintage figure, and the kanji symbol is accurate since it is based on his action feature artwork.

    The sculpted plastic tunic/armor with ninja head looks better, IMO, and fits in more seamlessly with the rest of the line. However, the symbol is incorrect since it's just the repainted Ninjor symbol.

    The helmeted samurai head looks cool with plastic, but could also work with the cloth.

    So how are you displaying yours, if you got him?

    I painted a He-Ro II buck and added the armor and head to it with a custom sword so I could have the best of both worlds: Slamurai with his white shadow doppleganger, that I call Whiteout.

    Helmeted head with plastic armor and belt. The name Slamurai is closer to a samurai instead of a ninja, and that helmeted head is the perfect "Eternian samurai", besides giving him a more unique look, IMO.

    I agree. I am displaying him both ways because I bought 2. Both are awesome, but I look the Sy-Klone repaint head the best. Not a fan of the cloth tunic.

    My favorite so far has been ninja head, plastic armor, no belt.

    I’d possibly be swayed by the Sy-Klone head but it does NOT want to fit on the peg

    The very first option for me because:

    a) it is a 100% relevant to the vintage figure he was supposed to be
    b) too expensive to buy extras these days
    c) my appetite for such alternatives was dropped drastically with Classics being on hold

    Mines gonna be a white ninja with a new name. I'll make a real samurai and use that 200x head since 200x versions pretty much don't exist to me in my collection or thoughts and is close to a samurai head. No idea when I'll ehip one up, need to hunt down parts that will work.

    One ninja head with plastic armor and one helmeted head with plastic armor.
    I don't like the cloth tunic.

    Ninja head with plastic armor and no belt. IMO this the Classicized version of the original art (apart from the correct symbol in a perfect world ).

    Love this idea. I likely will alternate displays like I do with all my other figures with alternate heads, armors, etc.
    Top MOTUC wants: Sagitar, Great Black Wizard, Skeletor's Skeleton Warriors, Odiphus, Illumina w/Sleetah, Lady Slither, Tuvar & Baddrah 2-pack, "new" characters as designed by Axor (Axel)
