We always see Lisa Hayes in her military uniform but how often do we see the feminine side of this so-called obasan. Arii had brought out the lady in Lisa though this rare swim suit version. It also one of those figures released to commemorate the 15th Anniversary Macross series "The Super Dimension Fortress-1". It's a huge 1/6 scale (Measuring approximately 16.5" tall) Hi Quality P.V.C fixed-posed figure.
The packaging is presented in blister card and the whole thing seems huge. The figure comes with a black plastic base, metal rod that attached the cushion seat to the base. There's also a complimentary beach ball, almost the size of a ping pong ball and a picture frame that's not Misa....Hmmm... I wonder why...
The actual colour scheme to the swimsuit differed from the picture illustration on the card backing so I presumed this baby blue swimsuit is a variant piece. Misa was supposedly sitting on a beach chair but the actual toy varies. The face sculpt isn't very accurate as it didn't portray those deep sad expression of the character. There are also obvious seam lines on the hair if you noticed from the pics. But I don't really mind such flaws taking into consideration the era of its production.
I personally find it awkward to see Misa wearing elbow and wrist bangles. But the greatest mismatch is still the high-heels. This is perhaps a fashion statement during the early eighties.
