"Bandai doesn't do a bad job aping Good Smile here, but they don't turn out a superior product. This line and Nendoroid are basically interchangeable, and they'll be covering entirely different characters given what Bandai has the rights to (TnB, One Piece) and what Good Smile has the rights to (anything Bandai doesn't have). If you're a fan, sure, this is a good one. We got ours from Amiami for about $50 or $60. There will also be a Figuarts of this character, if you are fond of normal human proportions."

A paragraph from the last column got in here somehow.

A little robot maid that kills bugs with katanas and heavy weapons? Genius. I know I would buy one if they were real. Apple should make such a thing and call it the 'iMaid Nano'.

As for the toy it looks cool, I especially like the weapons rack.

Hoi-Hoi san!! Really fun column. I wouldn't mind getting my hand on that. I have the comic. Tanaka-san art is really awesome. But I have to admit that's a lot of stuff for that model.

I have one of the model versions of this, and some of the parts, especially the head, look really similar. Except that this seems to have better joints. I always thought those 2 'wings' coming off of her head were the 'antennas' though, and the ahoge was just an ahoge?
