Saint Seiya Myth Cloth: Fenrir of Alioth

Alioth Epsilon Fenrir is one of seven Warriors Gods of Asgard in the series Saint Seiya of Masami Kurumada .

Fenrir was a member of one of the most powerful and rich families in Asgard. One day, when he and his family went hunting, they were attacked by a bear. Helped by wolves and abandoned by humans, he started to live with wolves adopting their life style and deeply hating humans. Later, he was chosen by Hilda as the Epsilon God Warrior. He died fighting against Shiryu when an avalanche fell over him and his wolves.
Named after the Norse mythical wolf Fenrir, who will swallow Odin during Ragnarok. His armor also resembles the wolf

Fenrir is the latest of my God Warriors to be collected, leaving only Mime and Bud to go, along with the supporting characters of Hilda and Seiya in the Odin robe.

As with the rest of the series, the God Cloth is of an exceptional quality, with beautiful vibrant and correct coloring down to the shiny Odin Gem in his waistpiece, and comes with the option of an open or a closed mask.

Beware though, I actually bled during assembly of this model!!!

The underarm pieces have some darn sharp edges, and when you struggle to `click` on the fists, a common issue with new cloth models, I managed to pierce the skin on my fingers with those extensions.  All credits to Bandai, at least they didn`t snap off hehehe.

Another nice addition to the cloth is the inclusion of Buddy, Fenrir`s companion wolf and guardian angel during his youth, a nice touch to a nice robe from a very nice range of Myth Cloths!

Just a few more of the recent additions to add, and then i`ll do an oversight of the clothes I have in my cabinet so far, but now... back to the painting table!
