Dokuro Nina (Blue Hair + Mono Head)
Review by JoshB
Dokuro Nina (ドクロニナ ブルーヘアー) comes from Nirasawa's Manga Phantom Core
About Phantom Core
The time was the future…
Genetic engineering and bionics were progressing well. Bionic-machines and living body weapons had a big influence over the world. But many successive clonings brought about poor quality on the market. Under these conditions, some mutations appeared frequently from those inferior species. These mutations, known as WEAPON CREATURES multiplied and dispersed everywhere. They were a terrible threat to the human race.
Nations tried to establish suppressor units called WCS (Weapon Creature Suppress) in order to protect the city.
But many people were injured or killed as populations decreased. WCS had failed. They needed to regroup and strengthen themselves and they did so through the use of cloning and the hiring of freelance suppressors.
Ironically, humans had to choose the cloning of soldiers to suppress the cloning madness of WEAPON CREATURES.
In that world, PHANCURE and NINA DOLONO were active freelance suppressors to root out WEAPON CREATURES and try to solve the mystery of an enigmatic ball, THE PHANTOM CORE which caused the birth of these beasts.
The Heroine (!?) of PHANTOM CORE, A freelance suppressor of WEAPON CREATURES and a dopester. She lost her arm in a fight witha WEAPON CREATURE, and made her left cyborg arm with the SPELLMACHINE.
Her hobby is making many various spear arms and suits
One of her basic battle suits, sealed with the power of death.
Standing 7.1" tall, Dokuro Nina comes in two colors - purple haired Nina comes with extra figure Two Heads and blue haired Nina comes with Mono Head.
Dokuro Nina also comes with her own custom base and her arms and head are posable. Diamond Comics imported these figures and they retailed for around $18.95 in the US. However, they went on clearance and eventually could be had for about $7.
These are a steal at that price.
