Not to be a total prude, but I think she looks rather weird here. The breasts are bigger than normal, which is fine, but they just look funky. That said I think it's mostly the absurd pose/posture that she's doing. I think Android 18 is one of the cooler characters from DBZ, but this just doesn't work for me.

Yeah, it's not just that they added ginormous breasts on her, but that they're too high and perked, too round and too protrudent, they look more like someone glued volleyballs on her chest than actual breasts. Have these figure sculptors ever seen an actual real woman in their lives or something? It's not like I expect anime to have real human proportions, but this one looks even weirder than the usual. I also think it's pretty sad they think they think a figure of the character wouldn't sell if they didn't add boobs on her (good looking or not)

This is the style of the company which handles these sculpts. You can either like it or not. They're not trying to be an anatomically correct "real gurrrlz", all of their figures are super exaggerated and cater to the people who like that style.

There's dozens of regular 18 figures out there already that sold just fine. People gotta stop thinking companies only use boobs to sell a product rather than companies putting in boobs because they like them and people like them. Razz
