Available for pre-order now is Shining WInd’s Xecty Eve! She has made my 2010 list for a few good reasons. Firstly I have never been too happy with the existing Xecty’s not sure why, but they just never really appealed but this 1/8 version by Kotobukiya has a fantastic looking weapon and really nice eyes (in my opinion).
The red outfit actually makes this figure stand out a lot more which is probably another reason I have added, existing Xecty’s have the sombre olive drab/military green that can make the figure look dull. At the same time of release is the Military version (in said green) which is probably more true to the character design but for me less inspiring due the colour palette. For most people though the weapon is the most obvious focus, Xecty wields a very fearsome looking hooked blade polearm and in my opinion interesting weapon design makes a figure all the more desirable.
Xecty is available from most online retailers now priced at $69.99 and is scheduled for a late March release, this figure has already seen a bit of popularity and could be one of those hidden gems of 2010.
Thanks for reading
