Talking of face fluff, since I've been on the shelf these last few months I grew myself an awesome Jedi beard. Sadly after much protesting from my aunts I had to shave the bugger off :cry:

I'm a girly I like flashy plus takeda has a long upstanding history in anime, unlike nobunaga who is pretty much always depicted as the devil incarnate

After seeing this video I'm slightly put off now as both the kabuto and mempo appear aged, so much so the are practically grey :S

Looked at quite a few other vids and up close pics, and now I'm leaning towards the Takeda Shingen one as its not as flash as it looks in the hanwei promotion picture.

The takeda one is the only one I've ever seen, it was used as a shop display and I thought it looked nice some years ago and have to some extent coveted it since, but I'd still rather spend the money on a sword :GGG

My sword collection is pretty much complete now, other than Marto's Conan Fathers sword which is quite hard to find now for less than £500. I've also got no display places available lol
