ZOOM! Red-Haired Shanks Neo DX

Time has finally come to review the Red Haired Shanks DX figure. A figure that many fans awaited for. The one armed Yonko is so so amazing. Again, Yuuki Ishiyama makes a show of his talents, let's go deeper and see why this figure is a real must have one!

Yuuki Ishiyama, a name rising up in the Portrait Of Pirates world, the talented sculptor is getting popular more and more, from the perfect Sir Crocodile, passing by SA Zoro, Eustass Captain Kid and arriving to the future Aokiji Edition-Z, all of his creations are more than faithful and perfect! Shanks is not an exception, he looks big, strong and full of muscles.

The face makes very good expression with the deep details like the expressive eyes and the scars. The hair is most eye catchy detail in the head, it looks voluminous and well brushed. I don't know if it's the magic of the sculptor or the quality charts of Megahouse. Muscles are big and reflect a solid Shanks behind the white shirt and the awesome cape, the pants are full of engraved and well paint texture and the sandals are good too. Shanks comes with his weapon and the scratched/torn Straw-hat and a two alternative heads with different expressions, so you can switch between the badass pose holding his sword, or the nostalgic guy holding his precious hat...

This is not all, the cape can be removed to show the missing arm of Shanks, another nostalgic moment for all of us right? The node in the jacket is so good and the allure of the figure is well matching. The proportions are more than correct and this is all what we need to have the conviction that this figure is a must have! So thank you Ishiyama Yuuki for your talent, we are blessed to get our figures from you...
