Can't wait for japanese collectors to force themselves to import this. If this is really the only figure for the character.

US$18 for what amounts to just two sticks with some boots and gloves that otherwise would be accesiories in an actual figure.

What a joke.

I am very surprised Funimation is not charging $200 for this crap.

She is not in the nude; she is invisible.

I don't even collect figures but part of me still wants to buy this because it cracks me the hell up.

Would've loved to have been a fly on the wall during the pitch meeting.

She's literally naked except for her gloves and shoes. Her clothes do not become invisible so she goes around basically naked in hero form.

Anyway, people are complaining about this but it's not like anyone's forcing you to buy it.

But I mean, we're still allowed to complain or laugh about how dumb the figure's concept is, or we can't do that either???

I mean, it's dumb on purpose so treating it too seriously is kinda missing the point...

Seriously. It's a fun gag "figure," it's less than $20, and it's probably going to sell really well.

According to Funimation, it is the world's first official figure of the character.


If I remember correctly, this is not the first figure of her, as there's a Nendoroid figure of her released somewhere.
