Having reviewed OE (original effect) 1/6 scale killer instinct SAM 13" post-apocalyptic female figure in three parts previously HERE, HERE and HERE, I think it's time to make a comparison between OE Sam and OE Viola, as well as with other 1/6 scale female action figures (NOT dolls but I guess that's just a technicality). Guys don't want to be seen playing with dolls, that's for the gals and daughters. That's why the term "action figure" was coined for masculine man so that they can say it's OKAY to pose with their action figures - same same but different Haha
According to wikipedia: An action figure is a pose-able character figurine, made of plastic or other materials, and often based upon characters from a film, comic book, video game, or television program. These action figures are usually marketed towards boys and adult collectors. Barbie is very much a fashion doll, primarily designed to be dressed to reflect fashion trends and are usually modeled after teen girls or adult women. Sam and Viola aren't because they are designed with men in mind LOL
That explains why I don't have many female figures in my toy collection because I much prefer the rough and tumble kind of characters who can take a knock and keep on going, not implying durability but that the figures are action-oriented. Scroll down to check out the size difference between OE (Original Effect) Army Attractive series 1/6 scale Viola and OE (original effect) 1/6 scale killer instinct SAM as well as other size comparison pictures of these two taller than usual figures with 1/6 scale "Ghost in the Shell" Motoko Kusanagi, "Appleseed Ex Machina" Deunan Knute, Marvel's "The Avengers (2012)" Black Widow and "The Dark Knight Rises" Selina Kyle / Catwoman.
As you can see, Viola is taller at 13.5 inches while Sam stands at 13 inches. Viola is the first figure released by OE (reviewed earlier in my toy blog HERE and HERE) and they must have rushed the production because the body sucks big time. She's what I would call "loose limbs" and her legs will just give up on her and fall off completely :(
