I don't know, the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the Fujiko figure was definitely not "High Quality."

The Lupin and Jigen figures look decent enough. Though I don't want to know the person who would be willing to shell out over $6K for one of these.

Haven't watched this latest series, but personally I felt that all three statue designs deviated too much from the 2nd season designs, so they appeared a bit odd to me.

First thought: "On hell yeah, a life size Fujiko! That's gonna be hot!"

Then i actually see it and am completely disappointed. Why would they do that to her? And who would pay that much money for it?

Jigen is the only real good looking one since you don't see much of his face at all.

Was Fujiko exposed to gamma radiation?

I was hoping that it's a prototype image, too. Her jaundiced look reminds me of something that's supposed to glow in the dark...

Y'know that song that plays in "Nerima Daikon Brothers" when they get money from Nabeshin? Yep, that's what's coming to my head right now. I need a life-sized Lupin! *.*

What have they done, to Fujiko. I remember her, as a hot babe. Now I am going have nightmares due to this face that seems of some artist went his own way of making a completely different face.

I agree with every one else, Fujiko looks horrible. Lupin and Jigen look good though.

One reason why I don't like life-size anime statues: Ugly as hell.
It doesn't matter it's Fujiko Mine or Rei Ayanami or Madoka Kaname.

It looks like an overblown toy figurine without details. Bigger it is, the more details are expected. Heck, a mannequin would look much better with cat suit and wig.
