A noble looking chap indeed.
I've seen some odd-looking Kaiketsu Lion-Maru toys, but this is one of the strangest by far! That flesh-colored lion face is so creepy! Actually, I'm a huge fan of Lion-Maru as well and I cosplayed this character recently (http://qpopshop.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2012-11-30T23:02:00-08:00&max-results=7). It took me months to complete this costume, but it was worth it.
