This latest piece from Kotobukiya comes via Danny Choo, who is a big fan of the figure. And for the most part I have few complaints-- the paint is nice, and the sculpt is good, although the bow on her bikini top is a bit non-canon (though not unattractive).
But frankly, once again the face weirds me out a little. This time my problem isn't with the attitude of the face, which I adore, but its shape...it just seems a little bit too rounded. Chunky. Childish, perhaps.
And before you go on about how she's supposed to be 14-- please. Check out that rack. (No, really, I think the sculptor spent significantly more time on them than the face.)
What do you think? Am I overly picky, or is it a little off? Would you buy this ¥9450 ($96 USD) figure, due out this month? You can see more shots at Choo's.
