Bleagh.

At least it's not as bad as the (in)famous Saber that even the original modeler sought after out of curiosity.

It's everything you hated about the regular statue, but this time, it looks like it's made entirely of snot.


Epic line of hilarity.

That was a great review Rob. Almost makes up for the lack of one last week. Keep them coming.

Good God that is an ugly figure. Why? Why does such a horrible thing exist?
Are you sure it's not a bootleg, cause...augh.

Oh so THAT'S what one of the DVDs I won was, it was the Live Action Cutie Honey. Couldn't bring myself to try it and I'm pretty glad I didn't now.

When I saw the yellow figure, my jaw dropped in disbelief. I can't believe that anyone would willingly buy and enjoy this. Great review as always, Rob.

I think it's been so long since a realistically shaped female appeared in an anime, they forgot how to make one.

They should have no problem making figures of women in Eiichiro Oda's artwork though.

Yes, it looks like either a bootleg or an old U.F.O. prize figure. In fact I think it looks more like a bootleg than the bootleg Luffy figure reviewed a while back. My favorite Cutie Honey design is the one from Re.CUTIE HONEY.

If figures are going to be made in a single color, then it should at least be in something decent. Snot yellow is bad, and clear isn't much better.

That's exactly what crossed my mind when I saw the figure compared the advertisement for it. It looks too far off from the sample to be real. Ugh. That's false advertising right there...

Could they have thought it was yellow like honey so you're getting Cutie Honey as fake plastic honey?

The sad thing is this isnt a bootleg. That is, if rob did get it from ToysLogic like he linked to. They never sell bootlegs and are my most trusted figure resource.

All and all that just makes this figure even more pitiful.
