This is the recently released Original Effect Army Attractive series 1/6 scale Viola female action figure (femfig) which I had gotten in March 2013 (see my toy blog post HERE of my other hauls) but have not reviewed yet until now. Too many toys / figures and too little time ;p
Original Effect Army Attractive series 1/6 scale Viola female action figure 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.
What drew me to this figure was the stylized female head sculpt (blond hair, blue eyes with the come-hither look - what's there not to like haha) combined with the German Nazi-like black dominatrix outfit, all of which speaks of seduction, submission and sensuality. Plus she's an "action" figure and you know I collect action figures and NOT dolls ;p a point I always try to make whenever I can - check out my post HERE for the differences between an action figure and a doll although the line can be rather thin at times, especially when it comes to female figures.
Like I mentioned above, Viola is a 13.5-inch tall female figure which is not the correct scale for 1/6 as she should have been only about 12 inches tall. The box that she comes in is bigger than normal since she is taller than most 1/6 scale figures. When the box lid is lifted, there's a seal with the Original Effect logo which has to be broken to reveal the figure. I just cut the ribbon instead as I didn't want to break the seal.
Original Effect Army Attractive series 1/6 scale Viola 13.5-inch female action figure comes with a comic, Army Attractive Vol.1
Viola comes with a comic but it isn't very well written. It's in English but because it's a direct translation from Chinese, you can read the words but they don't makes sense as there are many errors in translation which makes it hard to understand although you can more or less get the gist of the story from the pictures. I don't think the comic will sell on its own. I only read it because it came with the figure.
The comic is also done in different styles and rendering, starting with computer art (digital) to pencil drawings and sketches for the later part. Ran out of time and couldn't finish? It certainly looks that way.
On with the show. Here's Original Effect Army Attractive series 1/6 scale Viola 13.5-inch female action figure right out of the box, wearing white collar and tie, Bra / corset top, skirt, stockings and high-heeled shoes (no feet)
The figure itself is badly produced as the legs of mine keep popping out from the hip. Plus the joints are very loose. She's like a contortionist but in a bad way with her legs coming off the body almost every time I touch the figure when I try to pose her.
Everything comes off too easily. Like a magician's lovely assistant after being cut into two, with her legs totally separated from her upper torso. I guess that's what they mean by "loose woman" ;p
I like the concept, the sculpt and the body shape but the execution (production piece) just doesn't do it justice which is a pity. Great concept gone to waste :(

Now for close-up shots / pictures / images of Original Effect Army Attractive series 1/6 scale Viola female figure head sculpt
I was drawn to the sculpt and thought I'll give it a try but am sad to report that this will probably be my first and last Original Effect 1/6 scale figure for the following reasons: Too tall for 1/6 scale at 13.5 inches in height and badly produced body with loose joints :(
The tie also looks rather weird, not well made. Could have been better
I have no problems with the Original Effect Army Attractive series 1/6 scale Viola female head sculpt and I still like it a lot
Here are some pictures of the Bra / corset top, skirt and stockings
The Original Effect Army Attractive series 1/6 scale Viola outfit is nice - sexy and seductive
