It looks good

I saw shinki figures in my local hobby store. I sold at 30$ a piece. But knowing it's original price, I interested in having one myself.

Does this count as a girly figure?

From a pure design standpoint, I'm really loving this figure. The entire bio-mechanical aspect reminds me of the film 'Tetsuo: The Iron Man.' And the propeller coming out of the back is incredible. It's been a while since I've been attracted to an action figure for pure display possibilities...I kind of want to get it...but the concept of owning a Moe figure is rather...confounding...

Anyhow, great review, Josh - Thanks for destroying the fragile balance of my collector's conscience.

As I've come to understand

As I've come to understand it only recently, isn't moe a consistent and unwaivering fascination with a young character beyond the context shown in their respective media?

Moe isn't necessarily about

Moe isn't necessarily about being underage, not as I understand it anyway.

And about Japan rewriting history, yeah, they need to do a better job of lying about things as they happen. ;)

I was under the impression

I was under the impression that moe is just for cutesy, frail, females, no?

"Cutesy, frail females"...

I agree...sorta. It's my understanding that age isn't necessarily implied in "moe", but c'mon...if not for the barest hint of boobs, this character (and pretty much all loli/moe/whatever characters) could be prepubescent boys. What does that have to say about the genre?

But, hey, if you like these action figures just as cool and interesting toys (like in this review), then that's fine. It's this whole subculture of otaku who are fascinated with these sorts of characters that skeeves me out...
