La Mulana's Kosugi Lemeza

Yet another for my "Indy Game Heroes" collection (I'll do another group shot after a few more, I think).
This is Kosugi Lemeza from an absolute gem of a game (my third favorite of all time, perhaps), La Mulana (released originally for PC in MSX style, but then re-released as a faux-16-bit remake on Wiiware and Steam. Go play it, and then contribute to the kickstarter for the sequel).
I've been wanting to do Lemeza for a while, but I had a really hard time deciding on the style and design. Then I came upon Jasmine Cote's momolana blog ( and this picture in particular (… ) and I knew I'd found my answer. Just cartoony enough, without being a complete caricature.
Except I would adorn Lemeza with as many items/weapons/accessories as I could possibly load on to him, because that's kind of the joke.
...So that's how this came about!

Included in my version of Lemeza is
-Whip (in right hand)
-Key Sword (all three on back)
-Knife (in left hand)
-Rolling Shuriken
-Chakram (interchangeable, in pouch on belt)
-Caltrops (on floor)
-Pistol (on right hip)
-Bomb (on belt near middle)
-Flare Gun (next to Bomb)
-Earth Spear (on left hip; see inset alternate view)
-Angel Shield (attached to left arm; see alternate view)
-MSX (in left hand)
-Ice Cape (fringe is visible under left arm)
-Isis Pendant
-Crucifix (hanging at chest)
-Hand Scanner (strapped to chest on left side)
-Ring (on right index finger)
-Glove (on left hand)
-Bracelet (on left wrist)
-Grapple Claw (on right hand)
-Gauntlet (on right forearm)
-Spaulder (on right shoulder)
-Hermes' Boots (on feet)
-Fairy Clothes (on torso)

The MSX and knife can also be swapped out for a plate of curry rice w/spoon (see inset image)

Lemeza is 5 inches tall to the tip of his hat.
...And the writing on the tablet says "La Mulana" written in La Mulana text.

What a fantastic statue! I really like how you captured Lemeza and gave him quite a bit of personality with the expression on his face. Love the idea of showing him carrying most of his equipment gear too! What a fantastic idea!
