With the power of freezing and manipulating ice and the snow in whichever way he pleases and the ability to stop the atoms of matter by the power of his Cosmo, the saint born under the Cygnus constellation in the celestial northen hemisphere gets ready to face any opponent, over the stairs of Athena`s Sanctuary. With his rear protected by a wall of sharp frozen stalagmites, from which a sculpture of a great ice swan representing his avatar rises, the warrior with long blonde hair and cold blue eyes appears to be calm, controlled, and emotionless, however he is one of the most emotional Knights, with strong emotional bonds with his past that are his weaknesses, but also paradoxically his greatest strength. Long-awaited by fans and collectors, Iron Studios proudly bring the statue "Cygnus Hyoga - Saint Seiya - Deluxe Art Scale 1/10", with the first of the main Bronze Saints (presented when the series is about to complete 29 years of its premier in Brazil, in 1994), in a luxurious figure with LED lights, that will be part of a Diorama with the most beloved characters of the show.
Iron Studios also bring the statue in the regular version "Cygnus Hyoga - Saint Seiya - Art Scale 1/10", with the warrior over a simpler base, that remind the stone stairs of Athena’s Sanctuary.
Trained in the past by Camus, the Gold Saint of Aquarius, the Crystal Saint or Crystal Master was the instructor of the saint candidates Hyoga and Isaak. After an accident that led to the vanishing of Isaak, the Crystal Saint was determined to finish Hyoga’s training, that starts seeing him as an idol. Hyoga lived most of his life in the cold lands of east Siberia, and after years of training, he paid one last visit to his mother, and then, in the company of Yakov, a boy that lived in a village near his training grounds, he travelled to the great wall of Eternal Ice. There, Hyoga discovered the Cygnus Armor, wearing it with pride. When the Bronze Saints were declared traitors by the Sanctuary, the Crystal Master is summoned and instructed to capture or kill his pupil, but he denies delivering Hyoga or any other Bronze Saint, which causes him to confront the Great Master. Defeated and under the demonic control of Pope Ares, Crystal returns to Siberia, enslaving villagers to build a pyramid of ice to pay tribute to Ares. Hyoga then is forced to face him, and Crystal dominates the fight until the moment of the decisive strike, moment in which he is struck by the Aurora Thunder from the Cygnus Saint. Deadly wounded, Crystal uses his last energies to fire a blast against the Pyramid, destroying the last Sanctuary’s symbol of domination and oppression on Siberia, and teaches one last thing to Hy?ga, that he should never hesitate in decisive battles, no matter who the enemy is.
