"A lady from the royalty must wear striped panties!" - Menace in Writings on the Princess of the Ancient Times
This is just a quick review of the Excellent Model CORE Queen's Blade P-9 Kodai no Oujo Menace figure produced by MegaHouse. She was released on April 2009 and I was lucky to acquired her this month (July). She was sold out fast on release and became quite hard to find.
The shitapai and shimapan Egyptian-themed princess is actually a living dead! She's based on a mummy character from the Lost World books. However, for the Queen's Blade series, the veteran artist F.S didn't draw a rotten dead corpse but a gorgeous killer body!
Sculpting (9): Sexy!
The sculptor MELTING NEURON brings us a Menace overflowing with sexiness! Every curve feels real! All the clothing and jewelry details from the original design by F.S are faithfully reproduced on PVC.
Painting (9): Just perfect.
It seems that MegaHouse is improving their quality after every release. Only her eyes can be scary if you stare at them too closely.
Posing (8): Beautiful.
Waaaaay better than the ones produced by Griffon Enterprises. She might bend, though.
Base (4): Nothing special.
A cheap transparent plastic disc? It does keep the figure standing anyway...
Typical box with display window. Brown-colored with nice details giving off the Ancient Egypt feeling.
Inside, the plastic holder keeps the figure firmly in place.
Enjoyment (10): Ecstatic!!
Probably one of the better, if not the best, figure so far from the Queen's Blade line produced by MegaHouse! Even though Menace is far from the top of my favorite Queen's Blade characters list.
100% sexy and 100% recommended to any Queen's Blade fan.
