PHICEN 1/6th La Muerta Female Action Figure is “Day of the Dead” The Crow meets Death Wish

Phicen is on a roll. They have been releasing preview pictures of their upcoming releases and products over the past couple of days and here's another one: PHICEN 1/6th scale La Muerta Action Figure. La Muerta is a 48-page graphic novel, written by Mike MacLean and illustrated by Joel Gomez and Ceci de la Cruz. It’s a “Day of the Dead” version of The Crow meets Death Wish. Female Punisher also comes to mind ;p

La Muerta is the story Maria Diaz, a US soldier returning from a tour of duty in Afghanistan to be reunited with her family on Dia de los Muertos, the day of the dead. But her brother has fallen in with The Zavalas, a death-worshipping crime cartel led by the nefarious Mama Z. When they see the family celebrating, they believe they’ve been ripped off by them. The entire family is murdered in cold blood.

Maria wakes out of a coma eight months later to find her family dead and gone. She seeks justice from the police, but she finds none: they are all in league with the crime cult. Daring the impossible, Maria – aided by the mysterious Faustino – decides to avenge her family and send the Zavala’s to hell, even at the cost of her own humanity.

What I like about this latest female action figure preview is that she doesn't wear hot pants or attempt to expose her boobs like so many other fantasy figures. She is actually quite covered up and there's actually an appeal in that. Not all female figures / characters need to expose their assets to get attention and even though Phicen is well known for their seamless body, it doesn't mean that they must expose the body all the time to get sales. This works too.
