I didn't mean Minerva. I know she's 15 years old. In fact, I don't even see any fuss on how she was rendered. Kawaii (that's the Japanese style........old school at that). In fact, it cause me to laugh aloud when you commented "she's not bad..........just drawn that way" ........shades of what Jessica Rabbit told the old P.I.Eddie Valiant.(So we shouldn't prejudge hot looking curvaceous femme fatales......)
I meant the other anime figs posted as examples by Rated X. One of which I'm familiar.........Shakugan no Shana. Those gals were rendered that way ( I'm not bad just drawn that way again
)and no right thinking person would equate owning such figs with encouraging to do harm to girls at that supposed age range (IIRC Shana more or less hovers around 15 to 18 yrs old but who's counting because I'm in it for the story and not obsessed with her age)
But I do not want to digress any further. I take my hat off to CM. Imagine translating from 2D to 3D a character with a fully functional transformation feature? Wow!
I can't wait for her and Ginrai to be released soon.
My Transformers purchasing habits, here are my following considerations so as not to DERAIL thread discussions:
1. Not hung up or hate scale. MP, Legend, Voyager....I'll take 'em all.
2. Price is indeed a big factor but if its a need to own one even if I have to eat "Scooby Snacks " for a month then so be it.
3. I tilt towards Tomy products over Hasbro because it's got lots'a bling (Legends Jetfire being the exception)
