    victorviper (10 days ago) #71239004I've somehow managed to avoid falling down the Fate rabbit hole, but damn if this isn't one good looking figure. The sweater dress hits that perfect sweet spot of sexy yet not outright lewd.
    I hadn't really thought about it until you mentioned it, but the fit of the sweater/dress around the bust area is a little bit unrealistic, but then again let's be realistic - the appeal of a figure depicting a character in a baggy outfit is going to be limited, so it's all about giving the fans what they want.
    Nice review!


    Yes, even in the world of Japanese anime/manga figures, the end result must be a satisfactory return on investment, and for the manufacturers who want to sell as many copies of their figures as possible, they need to listen carefully to what their collectors have to say. I, personally, wouldn't mind seeing what the clumpy, oversized sweater would look like on her, but there's no question that a certain amount of her sex-appeal would be lost for most buyers. :)

    I have nothing more to say but a collective "aw" I spoke out loud when I read this sentence. I absolutely love the narrative you weave around the figures you review. My favorite part probably has to be her hands tucked behind her hair, and I like her hair painting as well (appears to my tired eyes as almost having a gradient, is this true?).


    At the core of me, I'm an old-fashioned guy who wants nothing more than to be the Prince to my Beauty .. unfortunately, I've spent most of my life believing I was the Beast, which did nothing for my self-confidence or motivations. But Beauty has stuck with me for 26 years, we have two AMAZING kids, and I count myself amongst the luckiest of men.

    In regards to the hair color on Scáthach, I'm not sure that a gradient is what the manufacturers intended, but they definitely got a little bit of it as an end result. My guess is, there is an undercoat (perhaps a primer) that is a reddish color (or maybe just more violet), and in some places like the crown of her head, the deep plum is a bit thinner and allows that brighter color to come through. Whatever the original intent was, the result is very pleasing to the eye.
