In this hobby, sometimes you pass on an item and then have a case of non-buyer's regret when you see the price that of item go absolutely crazy post-release. However, sometimes fortune smiles and you get a second chance at such figures in the form of a re-release or a new color variant and so today we'll be reviewing such a figure, Rocket Boy's "Sun Kissed" variant of their very popular Dva figure. This is an 18+ figure and Dva is a futanari, so most of the shots in this review will be highly NSFW. You've been warned...

About the character/figure: Dva is an original character designed by the well-known illustrator Ban ENTRY #113961. While Ban does not exclusively draw futanari characters, I would daresay that they are best known for their attractive futa designs.

As mentioned a second ago, this figure is a color variant of ITEM #549551 which was released in April 2018. That figure proved to be enormously popular and soon started fetching prices of two or three times its original price on the secondhand market. This recolor was released in March 2019 at a price of 15900 yen.

Packaging----------9/10

Rocket Boy goes for a very simple package design. The box is windowless and each panel features a combination of the name of the figure and/or a hibiscus flower on a solid black background.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554252411.jpeg

As you can see from this PICTURE #1961846 photo showing the box design of the original figure, the recolor makes the text and the flowers on the box gold instead of silver, which channels the tanned theme of the color variant.

This figure has many optional parts, and for such figures I like to keep the figure box on display nearby. Therefore, I like how there's no explicit artwork on the box, yet the hibiscus flower with its pronounced stamen cleverly alludes to the futanari nature of the character.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554252413.jpeg

Dva in the blister. You can see that the futanari parts are packaged in a little black box to avert prying eyes.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554252415.jpeg

Dva wears a bracelet and an anklet, and these come as separate pieces.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764518.jpeg

As is common with their releases these days, Rocket Boy includes a postcard with Ban's original illustration of the character.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764515.jpeg

Getting Dva set up in your preferred manner is pretty straightforward (her arm and leg must be removed to install her bracelet and anklet, and the various crotch pieces lift off), but it's always nice to have an instruction sheet.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764507.jpeg

When I saw this text which obviously is some some sort of warning, curiosity prevailed and I ran it through Google Translate. Amusingly, this text warns that individuals with pacemakers should take care in handling this figure as Dva's nipple pasties are magnetic and presumably the magnets could interfere with a pacemaker's proper function. I don't think I've ever seen a warning like this before!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764509.jpeg

Set up and ready!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764520.jpeg

Even though Dva is a 1/6 scale figure, because of her sitting pose, the box does not have to be excessively large. The box measures 25 by 28 by 22 cm, and the cost of shipping the figure EMS to the USA was 4100 yen.

Base----------7/10

Let's begin with what is probably my least favorite thing about this figure, Dva's base. The sandy finish does look pretty good, but there are a couple things about the base that are not so good.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764502.jpeg

Dva's butt cheek and leg are meant to rest in that indentation in the base.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764504.jpeg

The main issue is that this indentation is not quite deep enough to keep her from shifting position slightly and when this happens, her hair will not sit flat on the base. Is this a huge deal? No, not really, but is something of which to be aware.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764553.jpeg

One other possible issue with the base is that it is quite large. The base is right about 8 inches (20 cm) in diameter and the thickness of the base could present some challenges when trying to display Dva on a crowded shelf. However, with a little finesse, I found that the figure can be displayed just fine without the base if you want to go that route.

Posing----------9.5/10

Rocket Boy did a great job of duplicating Ban's illustration into 3D. Dva's body language is very aggressive, almost as if she's saying "do you think you can handle me?".

Let's have a look at her.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764520.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764523.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764531.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764534.jpeg

One thing of note is that you may want to carefully choose where to display this figure.

This shot is what she'll look like when the figure is viewed above eye level. The way she's leaning back and tilting her head makes her look slightly awkward from such an angle.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764536.jpeg

This is not so much of an issue when she's viewed from eye level.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764539.jpeg

IMO, Dva looks best when she's positioned just below eye level.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764542.jpeg

Sculpting----------8.5/10
Painting----------8.5/10


Overall, the quality of the paint and sculpt is quite good, but there are a few small issues on each of those fronts. Fortunately, these small issues are counterbalanced by some very interesting features, and overall I'd call the overall quality of the paint and sculpt significantly above average.

Rocket Boy did a great job with the design of Dva's face. Her green eyes are very striking, and the sharp cut of her bangs is sort of a trademark of Ban's character designs.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764546.jpeg

I really like the way her face looks from this angle, with the way that her hair frames her face.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764550.jpeg

An interesting and subtle feature of this figure is the hibiscus flower Dva wears in her hair, as the stamen alludes to her futanari nature. Note the sculpting of the individual petals on the flower.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554927849.jpeg

I also like the way her hair falls all around her, as opposed to having just a single "sheet" of hair, as this adds an element of realism to the figure.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764527.jpeg

One small complaint is that there are some isolated messy places in her hair, one of which is seen below.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764556.jpeg

Another instance of messy sculpting.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764558.jpeg

Probably the biggest sculpting issue with the figure is seen in the shot below. Dva definitely has a case of "helmet head", and the seams where the various pieces of her hair meet are difficult to ignore.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764560.jpeg

Even though Dva is for all purposes topless, I like how she wears that frilly collar. IMO that makes for a sexier look than just having bare skin there! The painting on the various black spaghetti straps is generally fine.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764562.jpeg

You can see a small painting issue here with the striping.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764564.jpeg

Note the definition of her armpit, and I like how that little piece of hair wraps around her breast!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764566.jpeg

The gold nipple pasties are a very eye catching feature to be sure, and I think the metallic gold color is a perfect match for her tanned skin and the overall summery feel of the figure!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764570.jpeg

The pasties are magnetic, and the magnets seem quite strong, but Dva's default configuration right out of the box has her breasts bare.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764572.jpeg

For the magnetic pasties to work, this means that Dva could not have extremely pronounced nipples. They're not quite inverted nipples, but that might be the best way to describe their shape. I like the very subtle color shading on her areolae, too.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764574.jpeg

There are all kinds of interesting things going on in the shot below. For one, that is a killer set of abs! The very defined abs give her just a hint of masculinity, which is quite neat when she's displayed in futanari mode. Also, note how the teensy little bows are well sculpted, down to the tiny knots on the bows. And then, there is her shiny skin. The effect is most definitely intentional, and it's a perfect look for the figure. With her bronzed skin, you could easily imagine that she's either perspiring out in the sun, or possibly she has oiled herself up.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764576.jpeg

Tanned skin is one of the hardest effects to realize on painted figures. Not skillfully done, figure tans can easily end up looking like a bad orange "spray tan", but Rocket Boy perfectly executed the tanned look!

I also like all the definition on her inner thigh muscles, and how you can see her thighs transition into her glutes.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764578.jpeg

If you're very attentive, you might note that the design of the bikini bottom is subtly different than it appears in the illustration. In the illustration, the bikini bottom is a small white heart, but in figure form Rocket Boy makes the bottom slightly larger, adds some trim, and at least to me, the bottoms look like a cat face :). If you look carefully, you can see a little bit of messy painting around the "ears".

I like the purple ribbon, as the rest of her outfit is black and white and the purple adds some needed color.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764580.jpeg

The illustration makes it clear that her bottom is a g-string bikini, and I like the triangular cut-out there.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764588.jpeg

The g-string does pull a disappearing act, though. Maybe it should, though, since there's very little material on the g-string back...

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764590.jpeg

Rocket Boy paid a lot of attention to Dva's feet! Her toes are different sizes, as they should be, and you can even see cuticles on some of her toenails.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764592.jpeg

If I were being picky, I would point out that they got a little shading-happy on the areas between her toes :).

Display Options----------9.5/10

Dva can be displayed with or without her nipple pasties, and there are four different options for her lower body. You can see that the bikini bottom attaches with a peg and lifts off.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764594.jpeg

Here are the four lower body pieces than can be used. You've got the normal bikini, a piece that makes the bikini bottom a "cage" bikini which leaves her vagina exposed, and then two different penises for futanari mode.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764596.jpeg

Here's option two, with the exposed vagina.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764598.jpeg

My complaint here is that the painting on Dva's vagina is just...weird. The orangish-red color just looks strange, but on the other hand I wonder how many people who buy this figure would actually display her like this anyway. Hey, that's a good poll question...

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764600.jpeg

Dva is of course a futanari, so option three gives her a very generous futanari part.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764602.jpeg

Her dick has a bit of a curve to it, and you can see the testicles are better defined than you sometimes see on futa characters. Also, her penis is tanned to match the rest of her body; tanning that part of the anatomy is a delicate proposition (the possibility of sunburn...well, let's not even talk about that...) and usually futa characters have to be aroused for their penises to emerge, so it would take some very deliberate effort on her part to get that tan there!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764604.jpeg

Note the level of detail on the head.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764606.jpeg

Since you need to know these things, the length of her penis is 1.75 inches (4.5 cm). At 1/6 scale, that would make its "true" length 10.5 inches (26.5 cm), so there's no getting around it; she truly has a majestic cock! Her cock is 3.5 cm in circumference. At 1/6 scale, that would make it 3.5x6/pi = 6.7 cm in diameter, or about 2.6 inches in diameter.

I like how she looks from this angle, nonchalantly glancing to the side while displaying her impressive erection!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764608.jpeg

Again, if you're paying close attention, you'll note another difference between the figure and the source illustration. The illustration has her cock sprouting out of her tiny bikini bottom, and the figure does not try to duplicate this in 3D. That would almost certainly necessitate the use of stretchy parts for the bikini bottom, and such things do not always hold up well in the long term, so I'm perfectly OK with this slight deviation from the source material on this front.

The final lower torso option has her wearing a bright pink condom.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764611.jpeg

The bright pink condom is sure to draw the eye! Note the detail on the condom, like the tip and the rimmed bottom.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764613.jpeg

Interestingly both the source illustration and the original color variant of this figure make her condom turquoise and not pink. I think that turquoise would actually be a better color choice since that would be in line with the beachside theme, mimicking the color of the ocean, but the pink still looks cool.

Under normal circumstances, futanari characters appear to be female in every way and their penises retract inside their body cavity, emerging when they are aroused in some way. You can see that Rocket Boy includes this detail.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764615.jpeg

Scale Comparison

With her seated pose, Dva will span about 5.5 inches (14 cm) at her highest point, and the way she is sprawled out, she will have a significant shelf footprint, spanning about 8 inches (20 cm) from front to back.

If she were standing, I estimate she'd be about 11 inches (28 cm) tall, which at 1/6 scale would make her 5'6" (168 cm) tall. Considering that the mean height of adult Japanese women is approximately 5'2.5" (159 cm), Dva would be a moderately imposing figure in the flesh and she'll look every bit of 1/6 scale sitting on the shelf.

Here is Dva with another Ban offering, Milestone's Neko Musume Maoniang ITEM #740665. Mao is also listed at 1/6 scale, and it's worth noting that the overall quality of Dva is significantly better.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554252439.jpeg

Tanned skin is an effect that is surprisingly difficult to do well, but both of these figures pull off the effect nicely. Wing's Super Sonico ITEM #117170 is 1/6 scale, and you can see that Dva will not be overwhelmed even when displayed next to larger-scale standing figures.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764619.jpeg

If a futanari and a succubus were to meet up, what would happen? I'm not sure, but the result is bound to be interesting and therefore these two make an interesting pair. Orchid Seed's Ziska ITEM #27956 is a large 1/7 scale for comparison.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764624.jpeg

Momohime ITEM #313104 seems a bit perplexed by this scene. That Momohime figure is 1/7 scale.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764629.jpeg

These two also make an interesting pair with the matching pink condoms. Skytube's Kanna Yuzuki ITEM #549591 is 1/6 scale for comparison.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/victorviper1554764631.jpeg

Overall verdict and enjoyment----------9.5/10

Arguments for: Many. The figure nicely realizes Ban's illustration in 3D, tasteful box art, lots of display options, Dva's slightly shiny bronzed skin perfectly channels a hot summer day at the beach, this variant IMO looks even better than the original, the futanari parts are quite impressive, and this figure gave everyone who missed out on the original a second chance at getting a great figure.

Arguments against: A few unexpected quirks in overall quality, she doesn't quite stay put on the large and awkward base, the figure deviates a little bit from the source illustration (the color of the condom and the lack of a bikini bottom to cover part of her penis), and the futanari theme might not be to everyone's taste.

Overall, despite some quirks, this is a fairly magnificent figure and if you're open to the idea of having futanari figures in your collection, I'd recommend Dva with no hesitation whatsoever.

Availability (as of this writing)

Sold out new.

As with all figures from Native and their various offshoots, you either pre-ordered this figure directly from them or a reseller, else you'll be hunting it on the secondary market. The original Dva ITEM #549551 went nuts in price post-release and routinely fetches upwards of 30,000 yen secondhand, but I've seen the new version selling for around 20,000-24,000 yen; one showed up (briefly!) on AmiAmi the other day for 22,000. Time will tell if the availability of the recolor will put some downward pressure on the price of both versions, or if supply will dry up and both figures eventually stabilize in that 25,000-30,000 yen range. In any event, I'd expect to pay more than original retail if you decide to hunt this figure.

Maakie (4 days ago) #59480960Oh no I meant like...the actual gaps in sculpt, you can see lines where the hair was cast in seperate pieces, it looks quite bothersome especially from the back tbh... A 'helmet head design' hairdo is not something that bothers me too much (I actually have it a bit as well as someone with long bangs and a sort-of hime cut hairdo). :)
If I would have this figure, I would probably also go for the condom-on display, I just did not expect the people from MFC to like it so much as well, haha!


I'm guessing the original Dva probably has the same hair issue but it's almost certainly much less obvious because of her dark hair color. I wonder if the manufacturer had intended to do a recolor all along, or if they only did so after the original had proved to be so popular?

I also thought it was interesting that the two most popular display options in the poll were "no condom/no pasties" and "condom with pasties".

victorviper (6 days ago) #59227728The hair is almost certainly just a function of how Ban's character designs, as their characters have very little texture in their hair, so I'm willing to forgive that.
The pink condom is a very neat feature, and it attracts even more attention to her...substantial...asset.

Maakie (7 days ago) #59159795Yikes! Those seperation lines on her hair! This figure is beautiful, but something like that really shouldn't show on such an expensive figure... :( At least her tanned skin color indeed looks very good and I was surprised to see so much details on the feet! I also did not think about the...issues for her to have her penis also tanned. :') Maybe she's just in a really good tanning (and oil combination) spray? ;)
I'm surprised by the way that most people voting seem to prefer her to display with condom on. Thanks for the review! :)

MadDoc42 (16 days ago) #58451733Good review, pretty much hit all the same points from my own. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who obsessed over the color of her condom and how the hair was assembled.

The sculpting of the hair (particularly on the top of her head) is kind of tough, just because a lot of Ban doesn't give their characters much in the way of texture in their hair.

If I could change just one thing about the figure, it would definitely be to include a third futa part with a turquoise condom. They already included four crotch parts, so why not make it five?

I liked reading your review, as you made some very interesting points, such as how the hypersexualized pose really makes the figure.

victorviper (20 days ago) #58304017It took me a minute to pick up on the stamen, but then I said "ah, that's clever...".
The warning about the magnets is pretty funny. I can see it know - person with a pacemaker gets the figure, starts unboxing, puts the futa part in place, gets careless with the magnets, and then...bam. The EMT's would have a story for the ages!


Haha, true enough! I’d love to be there if that actually ends up happening!

Moeromoero (20 days ago) #58301287Thx for the pictures of this hot babe. Really appreciate that all details are covered.
Painting faults are minor. I would be happy to live with it.
Changing the display orientation to hide the faults might be just fine.
Rocket Boy is supposed to have good finishing. Maybe your unit is an outlier?
Anyway, still very solid deal. Thanks for sharing the love for ero figs.


Overall the quality of the figure is fine and most of the issues are really not all that noticeable, but I would put Dva a notch below my other Rocket Boy figures (ITEM #464771 and ITEM #464770) in terms of overall quality of paint and sculpt.
