Penguin Parade Shin Koihime Musou - Sousou (Karin) 1/8 PVC Figure

Based on Koihime Musō: Doki Otome Darake no Sangokushi Engi, a Japanese adult visual novel and Strategy Game based on the classic Chinese novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms comes this 1/8th scale PVC figure of Sousou (Karin).

This figure is made by Penguin Parade and to be distributed by GSC. I'm not familiar with Penguin Parade so I do not have any previous reference point for their quality and detailing of PVC figures. The figure comes sculpted with her weapon 'Zetsu' held behind her back and has a cast off feature for her breast.

I like the color scheme of this figure. The dark navy blue with her blonde hair and dirty white leggings/shirt trimmings looks fantastic. However the color seems to be the only good thing about this figure. The figure does not have much detailing and closer inspection reveals imperfections in both painting and sculpting of the figure. The facial expression also leaves much to be desired as SouSou eyes looks like stickers as they are bland and lifeless... :( The base also looks bland and boring. Would have been better if they had provided perhaps a dark mahagony like wood base or even a sleek mirror/glass base.

Lolicons may take to this figure though quality of the figure would be a concern. I'll skip on this figure. There are other much better ARFs (Armed Female Figures) to choose from...

You can get yours HERE from PlayAsia. They ship internationally.
