ACI TOYS x Suwahara Hiroyuki’s Daimyo Series: Takeda Shingen
Item code: ACI – 32
Size: 1/6 scale. Approximate 12″ height
Following the success of Oda Nobunaga, first Daimyo in the ACI TOYS x Suwahara Hiroyuki Series, we are excited to introduce the second Daimyo in our line up ~ Takeda Shingen.
Often referred to as “The Tiger of Kai”, Shingen is among the most influential Daimyos during the Sengoku period, along side his rivals “The Dragon of Echigo” Uesugi Kenshin and “Lion of Sagami” Hōjō Ujiyasu.
Based on Japanese illustrator Suwahara Hiroyuki’s illustrations, ACI TOYS captured the essence and recreated the headsculpt of Shingen as the strategic mastermind of the era.
Staying truthful to Hiroyuki’s illustrations as well as historical references, iconic features of Shingen such as the white fur on his highly detailed helmet, the golden Buddhist prayer beads and ” kāṣāya” robe that symbolizes his devotion to the religion are recreated in 1/6 scale, with the combination of black and gold armor and crimson red “Jin-baori” further gives a distinctive look to this historical figure like no others.
Shigen’s armor is a Dō-maru, with large pieces of armor on the shoulders “Sodes”, features that evolved from the O-yoroi style, which was common during the Heian period and used in the Genpei War at the end of the 12th century. Special attention has been made in sculpting the details on the intricate design and formation of the armor.
The katana for Shigen took reference from the “Rai Kuninaga”, which is preserved at the Erin-ji Temple, family temple of Takeda Shinge in Koshu City, Japan.
