This is how Original Effect Army Attractive series Vol. 1 1/6 scale Viola 13.5-inch female action figure looks complete with all her accessories. I had covered the basic female figure out of the box along with the box packaging, included comic in the previous toy blog post HERE. This second-part review of OE Viola covers the 1/6 scale accessories included which are: extra pair of gloved hands, revolver, cap, belt with holster, black overcoat with belt, arm band and cigar
As I mentioned before in my part 1 review, this Original Effect Army Attractive series female figure is not really in 1/6 scale because she is 13.5 inches tall which makes her too tall to be one sixth scale. The leg joints are really really loose (did I emphasize that enough?) and her legs just pop out of her body when you touch it or brush against it :( Her corset top doesn't want to stay up and keeps sliding down while her skirt keeps sliding up and every time her legs pop out, you have to pull up her stockings and adjust everything all over again. Needless to say, this photo shoot wasn't easy at all. Scroll down to see the fully clothed OE Viola female figure
OE Viola 1/6 scale accessories: black overcoat, extra pair of gloved hands, belt with holster, cap, revolver, arm band, cigar, coat belt. The coat has a symbol / badge at the back. It seems to have a face made up of a cross and skull on a shield.
Close-up of the accessories. The revolver is just one piece molded with no moving parts
The belt buckle too has a skull embedded on a cross. Instead of the Nazi swastika symbol, it's an "X"
The revolver is way too big for the hands. So is the cigar. They seem out of place, like they don't belong.
Here's Original Effect (OE) Army Attractive series Vol. 1 1/6 scale Viola 13.5-inch female action figure fully clothed. Viola comes with 1/6 scale Viola head sculpt, 13.5-inch tall female figure body with high-heeled feet, pair of gloved hands, revolver, cap, Bra / corset top, skirt, belt with holster, stockings, black overcoat with belt, arm band, cigar, tie and comic: Army Attractive Vol.1.
I much prefer Viola without the cap

From Ted Menten: "G.I. JOE suffered from the NOT A DOLL problem until they coined the phrase ACTION FIGURE. Even then it was a serious problem since toy stores only had a DOLL section back then. Even Mattel had problems with the first KEN doll who was not listed as a "friend" but as an "accessory" in catalogs." LOL :)
"When Hasbro introduced the first NURSE she was not sold in the G.I. JOE section but in with other dolls. This was NOT a Hasbro decision but a store buyer decision. Years later she became one of the most sought-after figures."
"Female action figures have had a tough time in the market place. Years ago the first 6-inch X-MEN figure of 'Storm' just sat on the shelf."

Now for some close-up views / photos of OE Viola
Because Original Effect Army Attractive series Vol. 1 1/6 scale Viola female action figure is 13.5 inches tall, she towers over all 12-inch figures and here are some comparison pictures of 13.5-inch Viola and Hot Toys 12-inch Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson) as seen in "The Spirit"
I chose to put them together because they are both Nazi themed figures and go well together
