ZCWO: SPY "Nikita" 12-inch Femfig PREVIEW

Nikita is an American television drama for The CW Television Network based on the French film "Nikita (1990)", the remake "Point of No Return (1993)", and a previous series "La Femme Nikita (1997)". The series stars Maggie Q as Nikita, a spy and assassin who has gone rogue. She is now working to bring down Division, the secret government agency that recruited her.

I haven't watched a single episode so I don't know if this upcoming release by ZCWO has anything to do with the TV series or just simply riding on the "Nikita" moniker but it does look interesting.

ZCWO: SPY "Nikita" 12-inch Female figure will come with ZCGirl Real Like Head, ZCGirl "EVE" Body (Pale) with Short Torso, Black Suit, Blue stripe Shirt, Black Belt, Black High heels, Luggage Case with Spy Accessories

So glad she's not in a black leather dominatrix outfit like so many others we've seen ;p That's what you get when you ask guys to design and market female figures - lots of flesh and very little clothes. At least this figure looks REAL enough. The accessories are certainly interesting and worth a second look.

The ZCWO 1/6 female head sculpt is much better than most I've seen but still rather boring with the emphasis on DULL. She looks too much like a lifeless mannequin than a bona fide assassin / spy. Unfortunately we just don't get that many nice female head sculpts as compared to male ones. Still waiting to see the Hot Toys finalized Resident Evil Alice head sculpt. That should be good.

The roller bag keeps everything neatly stored away for use when needed but try checking this into any airport and see what happens. I wonder which airport she flew out of. They really need to step up their security checks LOL

One of the coolest thing is the Desert Tactical Arms (DTA) SRS (Stealth Recon Scout) Covert Rifle

The SRS Covert was purpose-designed for Police and Military snipers needing ultimate concealability and maneuverability. The rifle’s 26-inch overall length puts it in the submachinegun length class. The Covert’s 16-inch barrels provide 1000 yard capability with exceptional accuracy. The Covert is fully compatible with 26-inch barrel SRS conversion kits. [source: DTA]

For me there is only one Nikita, and that is the Anne Parillaud version - "Nikita (1990)" written and directed by Luc Besson; it was released in the U.S. as "La Femme Nikita".
