In ancient Japan, the samurai warriors were a living symbol of honor. Each samurai had their own specially made armor, and symbol to fly high on their flags while going into battle, as well as a katana to fight by their side. The Sengoku Samurai each have their own unique looking armor, that is tied to their name- no matter how many centuries have passed. These figures capture the beauty of the yoroi armor, as well as the flags and katana that these samurai fought along side with. Even on a much smaller scale these figures emulate the details and time that has gone into the making of the yoroi armor.

About the Samurai: 

Not much is known about Yamamoto Kansuke's origins, though he is believed to have been born in a town called Ushikubo, which was under the control of the Imagawa Clan. Despite being blind in one eye and being lame, he was a ferocious fighter and a significant military strategist. There are also some depictions of him with a naginata, a spear like weapon to help him with his bad leg. His death was one of courage, as when he thought his plan would fail during the fourth Battle of Kawanakajima, and charged into the center of fighting, which cost him his life.
