I like how many figmas you review (only two, I know, but it's two out of four). They're really the only kind of anime merchandise I buy, so it's good to get a full evaluation.

Maybe I haven't really been paying enough attention to this column, but I thought the shoulder joints looked pretty sad compared to other stuff that's been reviewed.

My guess would be that you posed that figma to imitating Jam Kuradoberi from the Guilty Gear fighting game franchise.

Another awesome review of another interesting figma~

By the way, anyone reading, I hate to be an advertiser, but when he mentioned how the figma stands are extremely useful, I had to think back to this project I did, which was 'Lucky Mecha', a battle between Lucky Star figmas and various Revoltech mechs that put the stands to great use. You can see it here, though I warn that it features intense toy violence lol: http://fuzakenna.com/​2010/​03/​04/​fuzakenna-​productions-​presents-​lucky-​mecha-​ultimate-​war-​image-​heavy/​

12 hours from start to finish, with about 5 of those dedicated to actual posing and picture taking.

He appears to have taken down his youtube page, but a guy formerly known as Plamoo has some interesting ideas for in-camera effects for Gunpla, figmas and the like. His website still has his videos on, and even has a few 'making of' bits.

Compared to other Figmas the shoulder joints are more obvious and exposed, though you can somewhat hide them by forcing the sleeves up and posing her arms foreward(like in the last picture.)

I bought this figurine at an Anime store during X-Mas month of 2010, and I find this can be used as a manequin for doing fan art drawing of the "Battle Vixens" heroine herself.

Boy, do the hand/leg joints look pitiful. Even worse than usual for Figma. It's like they didn't even try. Half-nakkid boobs don't save the figure, imo.

I think I'll stick with Revoltech for female figures.
