Five great castle battle unique sculpts
Posted 28 December 2020 - 04:28 PM
Naochin says that the Satan Cross, Manriki, Bikeman, and Parthenon are the unique sculpts.
However, several others either looks different or altered to me.
For example, the Buffaloman looks like a Buffaloman (A?) with the horns removed and a “headband” carved in.
The Ninja looks like the existing ninja with arms in a different position. Same could maybe be said for Warsman and maybe Robin Mask. The Kinnikuman I don’t recognize due to the weird posture.
So, which of these sculpts are unique to these sets?

Yeah Satan Cross, Manriki, Bikeman, and Parthenon are completely new sculpts, a few of the others are slightly modified existing figures.

So, I went through and tried to identify which sculpts I believe were used as bases for the “unique” sculpts which were altered.
キン肉マン Kinnikuman - part 3 (hands closed)
ミート君 Meat - part 1
テリーマン Terryman - part 1
ロビンマスク Robinmask - part 1 (No armor)
ウォーズマン. Warsman - part 4 (Can arm bend that way?)
マリポーサ Mariposa - part 16
ホークマン Hawkman - part 16
ミスターVTR Mr. VTR - part 16
ミキサー大帝 Mixer Taite - part 17
キングザ１００ｔKing 100Ton - part 17
ビッグボディ Big body - part 14
ペンチマン Pinchman - part 16
レオパルドン Leopardon - part 17
ゴーレムマン Golemman - part 17
キャノンボーラー Cannonballer - part 19
ソルジャー Soldier - part 16
ザ・ニンジャ Ninja - part 2
アシュラマン Ashuraman - part 6 (top right arm up)
ブロッケンJr Brocken Jr. - part 1 (Hands open)
バッファローマン Buffaloman - part 1
フェニックス Supapheonix - part 14
マンモスマン Mammothman - part 16
ゼブラ Zebra - part 14
サタンクロス Satan Cross - unique sculpt
ザ・マンリキ Manriki - unique sculpt
バイクマン Bikeman - unique sculpt
パルテノン Parthenon - unique sculpt
Kinnikuman: Change of posture and left hand becomes closed.
Robin Mask: Removed Armor.
Warsman: Change of posture. Not sure if arm could be repositioned or if new arm was made.
Broken Jr.: Hands open! So, does this mean this was the original sculpt and the Part 1. Broken Jr. had its hands closed? Or are the hands new hands?
Buffaloman: Horns removed, headband revealed.
Ashuraman: Noticed this one latest. Top left arm is up too instead of bent and pointing down. Mount seems more open too.
I think that’s it. I have a long-term goal to complete this set so maybe more information to come when I can compare each against their main part series counterparts.

How to tell apart the unmodified figures from this set from their regular part versions?
Is there any way aside from color and feel at a side by side comparison.
