This week: figures that just look...off.

Sometimes figures just look weird. You can't always put a finger on what specifically about them makes them unattractive to you, but you know it's there. Here are two such figures spotted this week:


Shana's looking a little odd these days, don't you think? This is actually a different color release of a previous figure, which had Shana's fire-red hair slightly see-through. But I don't think I liked the figure much then, either. Her pose looks incredibly awkward-- the arched back and hands in fists would sort of imply that she's yawning, but no one puts fists through their hair while yawning. But I guess some otaku figure-maker might not know that, unless they'd had hair that long...also, the gloss on her hair is disconcerting compared to the matte of the rest of the figure.




And then there's Morrigan. Always my favorite Darkstalker (sorry, Felicia), but this figure is really unattractive, in my opinion. Her face looks really odd; why are her lips the same color as her skin? Though I'm not sure I'd like that super-pursed look even if they did give her a good shade of lipstick. The breasts are fine, even nice, but her hips look insane. I've never been a fan of those super-high-rise leotards, but they accentuate hips that are so far beyond plausible proportion...I mean, you can have disproportionately large breasts, either by nature or by surgery. But hips, not so much. At least this figure has taken into account why and how she'd have her hands in her hair though.


Yeesh!

Shana's hair looks gross as well as her body

Morrigan on the other hand looks Americanized to me..somehow

I like Shana but I prefer the red hair version I suppose. The Morigan figure to me only has her breasts going for her if you ask me.

i feel like a pedo....seriously...it's a little disturbing looking at that little toy that could pose as a 15 year old girl. frowns

Her age is unknown they do not state it so... =p

I kind of like the Morrigan figure.
