    Hi Vito,

    I’m glad you enjoyed my minifig of Miyamoto Musashi. The bad news is that I don’t sell the minifigs I make — finding replacement parts is just too time-consuming, and the parts I use are from 30 years of collecting LEGO, so replacing some parts would also be very expensive.

    The good news is that I generally only use unaltered “official” LEGO elements (Musashi here is 100% pure LEGO), so if you have the parts yourself or can find them on sites like eBay, you can build him yourself! :-D
