Man, Xenosaga. Totally
impossible for me to play, but I can watch the whole series
like one (very, very, very) long miniseries. And I have
done. More than once. I love every single
character--except Shion. Allen, just leave that whiny
bitch and find someone who will treat you better. Like a
rock. A rock will love you back, Allen, I swear.
...Right, ahem. And then there is KOS-MOS... not just a
sexy android (okay, gynoid), but something much more. I
can't say anything else without massive spoilers,
apparently. SHE'S COOL, OKAY?
Oh, dear KOS-MOS. How long have I
waited? Since you were a blurry, uncolored prototype
figure with no price and no date. And then you got
delayed. Twice. And then you wound up spending
the weekend in New York. I'm so sorry. But now
you're home, baby.
And the back of the box for some awesome
shots, just 'cause. It was such a lovely box.
What's inside is far better, though.
You do not mess with KOS-MOS and her
And the weapon I will always call her
tit cannons, but that's wrong. She is just
waiting for the first wisecrack before squeezing that
trigger, so look out. The guns themselves are
amazingly detailed, by the way.
She's gorgeous. And she comes with
so many weapons. The character is kind of a weapon in
herself, so you know, it's makes sense. Sexy
ass-kicking android in stylized heels, stockings, and what
look suspiciously just a little like cat ears. How can
you possibly go wrong? And she's shiny, too!
But I'm an incredible sap, so I prefer
her blue-eyed version. Those in the know will
understand why. Those not in the know can just
appreciate how gorgeous this figure is, along with the
lovely details. Articulation is really stunning, and
changing out parts was a lot smoother than I expected.
Then again, this is my first Figma figure. Certainly
not my last if T-elos gets made, hint hint. (And
Allen, but no one will ever make Allen, alas.)
Obligatory ass shot! ...Well, I
mean... she's spectacular in all ways. Also, the detail on the
back is just as beautiful. And yes, her hair is
articulated. It amuses me.
In all, well worth the
wait. I'm still in lust with the enormous 1/4 scale
blue-eyed statue, but since I will never be able to afford
that in my lifetime... I'd sort of rather have the action
