If I may...
According to the Wikipedia article in Japanese for "dappan" (there isn't an English version), the term does literally mean "to escape one's han (fiefdom) and become a ronin (masterless warrior)." However, the term is more generally used to refer to a vassal's renunciation of his obligations to his lord. In other words, a samurai's rejection of his duties to a daimyo, thereby becoming a ronin.

You were correct on the first part... but why did you put 1967 for?
Enryu wrote:dappan, in kanji is written 脱藩. 脱 (datsu ) means to escape, and 藩（hann) is fiefdom.

Awesome. It appears that I'm not the only E-J bilingual LEGO fan on C-C. Where'd you learn Japanese?
