I don’t have much to say this time because I’ve already gone on a lot about Kamiya’s amazing designs.

Besides looking good, this model has a very slight asymmetry in the tail, which is neat. Also, his arms slightly remind me of a t-rex’s arms. I suppose that’s just all praying mantis arms though.

The only other thing I can think of vaguely related to Satoshi Kamiya is that he added a Kirin to his online gallery last year. I hope he puts out a crease pattern of that one sometime.
