A sudden interest in 'Five Star Stories' after having watched the 1989 movie anime recently on Youtube. I actually knew what the existence of the manga series created by Mamoru Nagano, building on his work on the anime series Heavy Metal L-Gaim. Indeed a long history dated many years ago however its merchandises are hard to come by, especially the figure. To my surprise, a local seller listed this rare and hard to find fully painted version of the L.E.D Mirage from FSS, compared to the common transparent version are much easily available.
Though, L.E.D Mirage isn't featured in the anime movie, this iconic mecha is what we would see whenever anyone searched about the title. Not to mention the knightly design and templar crusader colour scheme. Kaiyodo adorns their growing line-up of action figures with their first-ever mecha, wisely choosing the L.E.D Mirage from Mamoru Nagano's Five Star Stories. This 16.5cm tall figure can pose at all normal arm and leg joints. Comes with 3 different swords and the shield with those insect-like mandibles. Include a complete set of decals too.
