At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, figurine maker Funko revealed a new model based on a Westworld character named Musashi — who could be the legendary swordsman Musashi Miyamoto — and the figurine was all decked out in samurai gear. It was an odd announcement because it seemed spoilery and we had never met the guy, yet here he was already immortalized in plastic. But the character was never confirmed to exist beyond the Funko figurine, and we were all left to only hope and pray.
You always have to love the accidental story spoilers via a tv’s toy unveiling but why make a big deal about a samurai toy if we’re not going to be getting some Samurai World? Cannot wait to see the madness of season 2. I have no idea what this show is even about anymore and it doesn’t matter. Cowboys vs. Samurai. Readyyy go.
Can’t wait for Ed Harris to get into a sword fight with a Japanese knight, just like I’ve always wanted. Sure, all the existential nonsense from season 1 was cool or whatever but it’s time to take the kid gloves off and give us people vs. murderous robots. I’m all in on Samurai World.
