The road to a perfect future is bumpy. It needs guides and guards, who point the way, stand firm for their ideals and keep enemies out. These figures are a cross between Moses and Ronin-like sentries, ready to serve and sacrifice for a goal they’ll never reap the benefits of. Judging by its rusty skin, this particular specimen has been at it for quite a while. The future is far away.
