ZOOM! Duracule Mihawk Ver.2

Mihawk Ver.2 - P.O.P Neo DX is the next figure we're reviewing. This is the second figure of the Shichibukai and it's totally amazing. Not only a badass character, but the "Greatest Swordsman in the World" is very attractive that he deserves a new statue. Let's see why this figure is so good!

Touching the untouchable is has low chances of success, but not whith Ishiyama Yuuki! After a very good Mihawk sculpted by the talented defunct Black Sabbath, 4 years later, a Ver.2 was born with a higher quality level, more details and alternative pieces! The details on his clothes are amazing, starting from the flowers on his jacket that are extremely detailed and well made, his belt's carving, passing by his majestic sword and reaching his handsome face...

Mihawk is a tall and lean man with a short beard, mustache and sideburns that point upwards. He wears black and red ornate coat with no shirt underneath with a crucifix pendant that hides a little dagger, which gives him the appearance of a Spanish swordsman. His attire consists of a wide-brimmed black hat decorated with a large plume, light purple pants held up by a decorated belt and tucked inside overly large boots in comparison to his leg size.

He wears a kogatana around his neck, appearing as a golden cross-shaped necklace, and carries Yoru (his sword's name) on his back. His large sword, which he keeps on his back at times when not in use, has a curved black blade, and is also in the shape of a crucifix, with a golden handguard decorated by blue and green beads, and a hilt wrapped in bandages, with a particularly big bead at his extremity. The sword is amazingly detailed and very big, it's the most important gadget of the figure, you will enjoy holding it guys!

You alternate positioning Mihawk between two positions, first is crossed arms position, second is weapon holder, both of them are awesome. More options are there for the head, for this time, you can take off his hat and see his spiky black hair (rare chances are in the anime\manga). These are the basic reasons why you should get this, without forgetting that the first Mihawk is now considered as a rare figure which explain the expensive price of it.
