Review III: OE (original effect) 1/6 scale killer instinct SAM 13" post-apocalyptic female figure

continued from earlier post...

Here's my third part review of the OE (original effect) 1/6 scale killer instinct SAM 13-inch female action figure with the alternate head sculpt. For those who have been waiting ages for this post, I apologize. Work has been keeping me busy and there have been quite a few updates concerning incoming figures. I certainly hope this is worth the wait ;p

As mentioned earlier in my first part review HERE, OE (original effect) first previewed Killer Instinct SAM with one head sculpt and then added a second version SAM head sculpt not too long after. This resulted in mixed responses with some preferring the first over the second and vice versa. In the end, OE decided to just include both female head sculpts for customers / collectors to choose which one they prefer to pose Killer Instinct SAM with. I don't mind that at all :) Having already reviewed the first SAM head sculpt, I guess it's time to see how SAM looks with the alternate head sculpt. Scroll down to see the pictures.

OE (original effect) 1/6 scale killer instinct SAM comes with the following: 1/6 scale SAM female head sculpt x 2, 13-inch Woman body, White swimsuit (weathered and dirtied, and looking less than white), Green working pirate shorts (with leather reinforcements at the knees), Yellow working boots, Orange scarf with iron wire around the edges for posing, shawl, Special bullet waist belt, Special bullet x 6, Mechanical arm, Alternative arm, Bare hands x 2, Leg protector. Check out the turnaround views

Both head sculpts are very much anime / manga inspired which I like. Nobody's going to bitch and say that the head is not realistic enough or that it doesn't look anything like so-and-so (insert famous movie actor's name here). These sculpts will stand the test of time and not fall into the category of outdated unrealistic human heads (those earlier Dragon Models Limited heads, for instance) because they were never meant to be real in the first place.

Here's how the special bullets can be loaded into SAM's mechanical arm gun. The rotating cylinder can be removed and placed back but like I mentioned before, I cannot find the trigger that fires this huge gun.

NEXT: Comparison pictures of OE (original effect) 1/6 scale killer instinct SAM 13-inch female action figure with OE Viola and other 12-inch female figures. How do they measure up?
