Preview Phicen Limited 1/6 scale Assassin Joanna 12-inch Femme Fatale Figure

Phicen Limited is on a roll. Just after announcing that they will be releasing not one but two versions of their 1/6 scale Rayne 12-inch female action figure (femfig) last week (see my posts HERE and HERE), they are showing new prototype preview pictures of their next 1/6 scale female figure and this one's an assassin.

Phicen Limited 1:6 scale ASSASSIN JOANNA (Item No: PLMB2012-15) will be approximately 29.5 cm tall and will come with 1/6 scale Joanna female Head sculpt with earrings, Small breast seamless body tan colored, Replaceable hands (6 pcs / 3 pairs), one-piece all-black Leathery jumpsuit, black leather jacket, Belt with Small waist pack, Big waist pack, Wrist protector, Elbow support, Arms protector, Armpit holster (1 set), Leg holster, Leg bag, Clip bag, Lighter bag, Guitar bag, Boots (1 pair).

Assassin Joanna 12-inch Femme Fatale Figure will be armed with 1/6 scale Pistols (2 pcs), Pistol clips (2 pcs), WA2000 sniper gun with 6 rds clip (1 pc) and 12 rds clip (1 pc) plus Zoom peep-sight. Scroll down to see more pictures :)

I can only guess that the reason why Joanna's arms are not covered up is because Phicen Limited wants to show off their 12-inch Small breast seamless body tan C

I may be wrong but I think most snipers prefer to fire from a prone position rather than standing because of the big a$$ guns they carry and the recoil the guns hand out due to the larger caliber sniper rounds.

According to wikipedia, the WA 2000 is a semi-automatic bullpup sniper rifle that was produced by the Carl Walther GmbH Sportwaffen company. It was produced in three different calibers. Production of the rifle was limited and it was shortly stopped because it was too expensive to achieve widespread sales. The rifle is currently rare and very valuable. Only 176 were created due to the high cost of the rifle.

Not sure if that's an actual sniper bag or "guitar bag" as Phicen lists it. All the parts and accessories in the list given by Phicen Limited seem to have strange names, most likely due to a direct translation from the chinese words / text.

The sniper bag seems to store the WA 2000 neatly with extra straps for holding the magazines and sniper scope as well as the sidearm pistols

The WA 2000 was designed in the late 1970s and early 1980s, in response to the 1972 Summer Olympics Munich massacre. The bullpup design was chosen because it would allow a standard length barrel to be used whilst the overall length would be shorter than a conventional rifle.

The rifle did not have iron sights. The most commonly used optical sight was a Schmidt & Bender 2.5-10X telescopic sight.

The rifle was produced from 1982 until November 1988. The rifle was used by some German police units, but production was stopped because it was too expensive to achieve widespread sales. The final retail cost for a base rifle in the 1980s was in the range of $9,000 to $12,500, and the rifle's current value ranges from $40,000 for the first gen. to $75,000 for the 2nd gen.

Looks like this girl is rich hahaha ;p
