Chika Mint Night

Chika Mint Night ( 血香・ミントナイト)
"Artist Junko Mizuno of Japan has many underground fans all over the world. Her art is well-known for her cute yet sexy characters and unique use of colors.
Some of her favorite characters, the girls of Miznotic Fantasy each display Junko's unique style. Each doll comes with it's own sexy costume and various original accessories.
A cute display stand and Junko Mizuno's mini comic book is featured with your doll. Watch for the Miznotic Fantasy Doll coming soon to a store near you!
Suggested Retail $38.95 This is not a Toy. For collectors only."
I've been a fan of Junko's work since I saw her short story in the comics anthology Secret Comics Japan. She has a style that is both unbearably cute and evil with a little sexy thrown in for good measure. This figure is from her Miznotic Fantasy line. There are three main characters in the line:
Normally, Chika is clad in red with a vinyl coat , like a bizzare nurse. Fewture also released 3 variations of the Chika figure:
- Chika Grape Night
- Chika Mint Night
- Chika Peach Night
This version of Chika features a skimpier outfit and a different color scheme, but thats about it.
Poseability is limited to the head and arms. The syringe is removable - its held in place by pegs in the hands.
The paint and detail are amazing - this is such a beautiful piece. It is more like a work of art than a toy.
One complaint I have is the stand - the base is nice, and custom painted, but the stand itself is your generic figure holder. It is not molded to fit this particular figure, and the clips of the stand really get in the way of the aesthetics.
If you are a fan of Junko Mizuno, you need to get this figure.
