TwinkieSupreme (20 hours ago) #19199613The Amazing Yamaguchi line uses ball joints for the thighs and an additional ball-swivel joint at the middle of the thigh for additional movement that's why Spider-Gwen and others in the line are able to pose her legs near-closed.

Hmmmmmm interesting. I don't yet own any figures from this line, so all my exposure to it is various reviews of the Deadpool and Spidey figures. Both of them do seem to have decent inward lateral movements in the hips, but not quite to the degree where the legs can close fully.

Hoping Gwen can achieve that even while standing upright, since being a lady and all. We'll see.

She can close her legs! A Revoltech that can put their legs together??? What is this madness!?!?! We might have a real winner here.

Added some gray prototype photos of her from the sculptor's twitter (Yamaguchi <Katuhisa>? Did he mis-romanize his name?).

This pose in particular is VERY encouraging: (mfc link)

goliathfasa (13 days ago) #18851187I'm actually excited about the distant possibility that they might continue this as a heavily-spider line, so they might tackle other spider females like Silk and Spider Girl. Probably not though, since Gwen is probably just a one-off due to her immense popularity. There's rumors of a Carnage in the works, so there's hope(?).
But yes, I can totally see them doing an X-23 if this line keeps doing well. She's popular enough, with her being in MVC3 and all. Probably going to go with that outfit though, if they ever do her. For some reason I can't see them doing the Femverine look for her. Not cute enough. Lol.


Ohhh I'd love them to make Silk! >_<

But yeah I agree, I don't know whether to get my hopes up just yet though if the rumored Carnage is true, that would nice as well. Admittedly I'd prefer X-23 in her X-Force or her normal/MvC3 outfit mainly because I'm not too fond of how they've been handling her as "Femverine" so far. >_>

ronri (13 days ago) #18847272I just realized that with Wolverine on the horizon and Spider-Gwen being the first female character in the Amazing Yamaguchi line, that it would be absolutely awesome if they made X-23 especially with her character's recent spotlighting/success in the Logan film. *_*

ronri (18 days ago) #18725250her unmasked face was sculpted by someone else entirely (listed under someone called "Tere" in AmiAmi's description) which meant that there was a possible disconnect between how that particular faceplate was sculpted with the rest of the body.

REALLY? That's very interesting...

I suppose it makes sense to have an artist more versed in sculpting anime girl faces do her face, while the rest of the figure is obviously done a lotmore Western and closer to the source comics' style.

Just hope they had better communication :P

I actually like the anime/manga look since it reminded me of Bishouho Spider-Gwen, but I agree that the size seems a tad small compared to the body. While most of the figure was sculpted by Yamaguchi, I think that part of the problem lies in the fact that her unmasked face was sculpted by someone else entirely (listed under someone called "Tere" in AmiAmi's description) which meant that there was a possible disconnect between how that particular faceplate was sculpted with the rest of the body.

Still, while definitely an issue, it doesn't look as bad in dynamic poses (especially those initial shots at Wonfest).
