Motoko Kusanagi by Takara

This is Takara's Cool Girl version of Major Motoko Kusanagi in ninja suit. Takara likes to put hair on their girl's head (e.g. Kerberos Panzer Cop Midori Washio German Gray version) and while it works for some, it doesn't do it for me when it comes to anime. That's the reason I didn't order their Appleseed Deunan Knute. Hot Toys' version, on the other hand, totally ROCKS!!

Back to Motoko's headsculpt - not anime enough for me :(

Major Motoko Kusanagi's weapons which are also Section 9's - Sebro C-26A with silencer and magazine, Mateba Auto Revolver M-2008 (listed as special bonus item) and Sebro M-5
The suit's very very nice and one can almost ignore the headsculpt with shades on

The hand is well sculpted to hold her Sebro C-26A, unlike BBI's Mystere. There are also two additional hands - one for holding her sidearms and another with outstretched fingers for nice dynamic poses 

Her Sebro M-5 in holster concealed but within easy reach

Her suit does not restrict her movements - check out her steel-toed boots - at least it's not clunky like Takara's Gen X Core Batman figure.

"Eat lead, tango!!"

hey joekabuto I'm not too sure what material is used but after all these years, it's still good as new :) not like the lousy material Medicom Toy used for their Darth Vader and masked Rider figures.
