Nice figs! Not a genre we covered very much. Is the bigifg oni 'shopped? Otherwise did you get a giant figure holding a sword with a bar handle?

Really nice! I particularly like the Daimyo and the priest (?) to the left. Where do you get the pieces for their robes?

Thanks! Most of my display collection is inspired by European history, mythology and fantasy. The Japanese-themed minifigs shown (and a bunch of ninjas that aren't shown) make up a very small part of my overall collection.

Not 'shopped. That's a genuine oversized figure. It's made by a company under licence from TLG. The sword is one of these in flat silver: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=98137. I had to wrap the handle to make it stay in the figure's hand. The figure isn't scaled to be compatible with the LEGO System.

Thanks! The daimyo's jinbaori (surcoat) is by SI-DAN (as are some of the katana, the wakizashi, ninja-to, priest's hat, priest's accessories and geisha's parasol). The priest's robes are by BrickTW and the kappa's staff is by BrickWarriors. The armoured ninja's claws are by BrickForge. The bigfig's jinbaori is home-made as you probably guessed. :tasty: The rest is LEGO.
