Ichigo 1/8 Scale PVC G.E.M. Series Figure
Action figures can be a great addition to your home and when you can choose from Final Fantasy, Fullmetal Alchemist and Naruto, you would expect them to look a bit better than they actually do.
Remember the rather camp-looking Lord Aizen figure of him in one of his final transformations? Well, this one doesn't fare any better, ether. This 1/8 scale PVC G.E.M. Series Figure of Ichigo Kurosaki from popular anime series Bleach would be great if his face did not look like it had spent an entire lifetime being jammed in a lift.
His hair too makes him resemble a flame-haired hedgehog-not our 'Strawberry' at his best.
Admittedly, Megahouse Japan have got the rest of the model correct right down to the sword, and obi with bandages, but that is about it. Collectors want to see their figures looking right, and this could do with a facial makeover.
Verdict: It's one for your collection, but only if you want to complete a set.
