Wet T-Shirt Contest! Kanu Unchou Figure Review
Bacon is back with something new for all the good little lads and lassies this time around! As many of you know, I don’t limit my reviews to only morale patches on my YouTube channel so I decided to herald my return with a figure. It’s an older model from nearly 10 years ago featuring the deadly Kanu Unchou from the Battle Vixens series but it holds up well. These originally retailed for 7000-9000JP¥ (64-82 USD at current conversion rates) but now the second-hand market has prices that range between $35-100. That said, this 1/6 scale figure has excellent quality which reflects the original price.
On that note, I’ll draw attention to the detail of the figure from the get-go. It comes with 11 molded pieces, two of which are interchangeable. Those pieces in question are her torsos which consist of a clean and a battle damaged variant. As the images in the featured video demonstrate along the image to the left, it’s rather realistic. It uses PVC for its construction but it gives a definite impression of wet cotton stretched taut over a pair of firm breasts. They also put good effort into the damaged shirt chest, semi-realistically imitating torn cotton fabric. Another area that shows the excellent quality and effort put into its production is the head of her weapon. It won’t cut you but it comes to a distinct point with a bladed edge and the details of the wolf’s head are immaculate.
Another of the optional use items included would be her skirt. It fits rather snugly over her backside and reflects where her arm is on the figure. With this option and the two chest pieces, you can display her in four different finished configurations. Of course, some of those will be more attractive or preferable to others. And naturally, the skirt does nothing to hide her pure white ‘pantsu’ or how it digs into her hips. Personally, my preference is to put her on display and put the skirt away but your circumstances may vary and affect how you can show her off.
Overall, it’s a very nice figure to cast your gaze upon. It has precise details and all the parts fit together well. If you’re a fan of Ikki Tousen or just big breasted fighting girls, I’d recommend adding this to your collection if you can find it for the right price. It was popular enough that it merited a second run 3 years after the first drop and the reasons why are apparent. Now sit back, enjoy the vijayo, and try not to drool excessively over these images.
