First Look

This release from Brick Works features a very nicely sculpted female instructor figure with an interesting way to fit the head without a visible seam.

Two heads are included, one smiling and the other glaring. The figure is sculpted in 1/20 scale so it will be in-scale with Hasegawa's Falke kit as well as the associated figure sets.

There is only a slight molding stub on the bottom of each head as well as on the heels of the figure body. I used a simple set of snips to remove the stubs from the heads in order to dry-fut them for these photos. Painting should be a lot of fun given the nice shape of the sculpting.

The instructions provide the recommended colors for this figure's uniform and helmet, though I'm sure a little variation is authorized...

This figure is definitely going to match-up nicely with the two figures included with the Falke kit and provide a nice vignette to display the completed model.

My sincere thanks to HobbyLink Japan for this review sample!
