    Mr green looks more classic. Gotta know how much it goes before deciding to splash on one or not. Nevertheless, good stuffs from SEA Intl.
    [Edit] OK, I missed the 1st line... its MSRP 99

    looks like the characters from Dynasty Warriors's Three Kingdoms.
    I've read the comic books regarding this a few years ago and not to mention beat the game on Ps2 a couple times.
    Definately gonna try and get these

    Pictures of the other three figures in this line.








    Most of them look too colourful for me, save for the two maroon coloured guys, but most of the headsculpts would be neat to have.

    Pictures taken from this auction for all 5 of the figures in this series. Yikes, 355.55 + 58.55 shipping.

    well they go for $100 each on toys2.net.
    and if this eBay seller sells them for only $370 for five of them shipped
    (pre order though...)
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Romance-Three-Ki...QQcmdZViewItem

    that's $74 for each shipped.
    SO I'm guessing the prices in other "regular" online stores should be around that much or maybe $65 for each, hopefully
    Its based off of the ps2 game i think, so that's why they're so colorgful
    nice figures to put in one line though

    These figures are not Japanese view (Dynasty Warriors game) of Chinese characters... So not base on the game....

    I know the Tamm brothers who run Sea International and will be (attempting ) to review these when they are released...

    I'm really impressed with maroon warrior with the broadsword

    MSRP for these figures is $100/each, so that lot of 5 at $74/each is really a bargain. I doubt you will see this price on any of the online stores...

    I think they're pretty freakin' fantastic! Neat addition to the 1/6th world. Between the ZMDC line and this one, Sea International has some nice offerings. IMHO, they need to do something about their base bodies, which are just about useless, but the armor and weapons are really well done.
    In an honest service, there are thin victuals, low wages and hard labour.

    What are the problems with the base body? Does it lack articulation, fall down, etc.?

    Again, just MHO, but my experience with their base bodies is that they don't hold poses well because the joints are all loose and the hands are relatively difficult to have hold weapons, etc. The good news is that other base bods can accommodate the head sculpts if you like 'em and then the figs are completely rockin'!

    Thanks, ND.

    Thing is, these outfits look pretty intricate and I don't cotton to having to having to spend extra $ and work to perfect already $100 figures.

    Anyone else have an opinion on SI's base bodies?

    I've used their base bodies for customs before (when I'm lazy), but Dirge is right - they don't hold a pose well. If you don't mind a "static" pose - like standing or as posed above in the pics - they're fine; but if you're wanting "action" poses, I'd suggest switching out the bodies for Dragon or BBI...

    I've started using Dragon bodies for my ZMDC/KUSA customs as they're better quality, at least IMO...

    these dudes are a must-get, fer shure! but man, the price pinches real hard, if the reviews above of the figures are any indication. i have the first male-nude released by Sea Int'l and yes, they are "limber" to say the least ... a bod-change is doable if that be the case, my 2-cents' worth

    I have Sea International Samurai v2 on a shelve and as others said before, was less then impressed with the quality of the nude. First of all paint ops, I guess Sea International followed Hot Toys trail - you simply can't compare it to BBI. Body design is also not the best, joints are on a loose side so you cant let it stand in a real action pose.

    now that i've checked with the game, you're right.
    but they look so familiar lol
    i bet they did use the characters from the game as references, cause there are many smiliarities in the costume and even character faces
