He also comes with an over the shoulder holster to store his saber, much like a Samurai would keep his sword.
A samurai would never have his sword (either of them) in a scabbard over his shoulder. Always on his belt, in a very particular fashion. There were very, very strict rules about this.

Do I have to bid you good day?

Had the shoulder armor been removable, he would have gotten higher.

I boiled mine and it came off easy.

What did it do to the soft goods when it came off?

I took the soft goods off before I boiled it.

Love this figure! Thanks to Kidhuman for convincing me to hunt this one down.

Now I've added photos to the Database...

This is a very nice figure, and I was pleasantly surprised with it. I love that they gave him a Samurai look.

You've convinced me to buy this figure when I see it, KH! It helps that I like getting Jedi figures and that I should be able to display Rahm along with Dark Woman, Nihilus and Darth Bane.

I saw him today and passed. He's not quite "samurai" enough for me to buy him for that reason.

Mrs Chux saw him and asked why he had a scabbard. Then she pointed out that a scabbard for a lightsaber you just turn off may be the dumbest thing she'd ever seen.

Mrs Chux saw him and asked why he had a scabbard.Because it's a toy... and it's more fun that way.

Good review, plasticfetish...

Well, I FINALLY found the FU wave today...old hat to most of you, but it was nice to find something new up here after weeks of nothing....

As for Kota....
I think he looks pretty cool as a figure, but the outfit's design veers a little too far from SW (as well as hampers his articulation a bit), although it still looks interesting. The scabbard is a rather odd choice for a light saber...maybe something like a more "traditional" sword or a force-pike would have helped make it more practical.

Perhaps when we see him in the context of the game it'll make more sense...

...but he's something new and different so....here's a few shots for fun...
