Kotobukiya Bishoujo Sniper Wolf Review

I'm not into Bishoujos from the Kotobukiya line since they look too anime-ish for my taste. In the past, my one and only review for a Kotobukiya Bishoujo figure was that of Tekken's Jun Kazama. But last year i was surprised with a teaser for this character and the hype engine's wheels began to turn: 

I'm a big fan of the Metal Gear line: Play Arts Kai, Hot Toys, Gecco, (and no, i'm not too big on the McFarlane version a decade or so back). You name it! One needed only to backtrack here to check out all the Metal Gear characters i've accumulated and reviewed over the years. We've been aching to get a good version of Sniper Wolf since Play Arts Kai started churning out Metal Gear Solid figures and though we failed on that account, i believe we just got the next best thing.

Play Arts Kai Spartan Batman Review - Timeless Variant

Alright, late review, again. Uploaded the pics about a month ago i guess but only found time for this write-up. Anyway, if you're a Batman fan i'm pretty sure you have this one already so you can probably skip this one and wait for that awesome (based on pics) Bushido variant coming very, very soon. But for now, this is the BEST Batman PAK Variant in the market today.

Been reviewing Play Arts Kai Batmen since SQEX decided that he should be the Sora of the PAK line and i've seen a lot of ups - Arkham Asylum, DC Variants, Wild West; and downs - Arkham City...well, you get the idea. Normally, we'll expect the character to be a bit stale already but, hell, this is BATMAN we're talking about. In fact, Bats is just hitting his Prime on the PAK line.
