Because Takara is convinced that men want to play with figures like this.

That's not exactly what I meant. I meant that Takara is targeting men that collect female figurines. There are a variety of reasons why they collect them. I'm not arguing against your points, however let's not let the graphic descriptions get out of hand. Remember we have young ones reading these boards sometimes.
