(This article was originally posted in Japanese at 03:40 Oct. 02, 2009)

Technologies of toy manufacturers are improving night and day, so action figures of the same character can come out quite different in twenty years.

Action figures of the characters from the Asgard Arc and Poseidon Arc of Saint Seiya were on display at Bandai's TAMASHII NATION 2009 Autumn and they had two versions of each character, the ones released at the time of airing (1988-89) and the ongoing line released since 2006. So here are some comparisons.
