Incoming: Phicen 1:6 scale Female Leather Clothing set for kitbashing Underworld Selene

This is an upcoming release by Phicen. It is their 1:6 scale Female Leather Clothing set (Item No: SHE-001) for kitbashing Underworld Selene. Outfit includes Leotards, Corset, Trench coat, Cuffs 2 pc, Leg bags 2 pc, Boots 1 pair. In the Underworld film series, Selene is a Vampire Death Dealer, sired by Viktor after he had slaughtered her family unbeknownst to her. She was born to Hungarian parents sometime in 1383. She is the main protagonist of Underworld, Underworld: Evolution, and Underworld: Awakening. She is portrayed by actress Kate Beckinsale in the movies.

From the picture, it looks more like the headless horseman (from the short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by American author Washington Irving) LOL. Phicen Limited has already released a Underworld Selene inspired figure sometime ago and since their head sculpt looked nothing like Selene / Kate Beckinsale, I guess Phicen figured they'll do better if they just sold the outfit instead as the costume is pretty well done in terms of stitching and detailing.

There are at least three 12-inch versions of Underworld Selene (Kate Beckinsale) 1/6 scale Female Figure in the market at the moment: one from Phicen Limited, one from FigureFun and one from Kumik. I had recently reviewed the Selene figure from Kumik HERE and HERE. I bought the Kumik version because I felt that the 1/6 scale female head sculpt bore the closest resemblance to Kate Beckinsale. I might get this Phicen 1:6 scale Female Leather Clothing set and switch the outfits for a better looking Vampire Death Dealer Selene ;p
