This is my kind of mecha girl! Absolutely fabulous for Ranka Lee cosplays as a very specialized sort of angel with Valkyrie weapons and armor! I'm more of a Sheryl Nome's worshipper and what make me decided having this figure is those VF-25 gears, one of the most unique features of this girl figure. Figure was released by Banpresto as prize figure, it's non-scale and stands approximately 16cm. Ranka is still in her teen years, though she's more a loli, she still not shy putting on the tights and showing off her abdomen. The figure is not all perfect as some parts feel rather rubbery like gashapon and the antenna tends to bend and needs the hot water treatment. I also think that the diameter of the the base is kind of wide and occupies more space than necessary on display.

HEHE, once I read the title of this publication, I thought immediately in a model kit girl, like those Gundam themed already in the market since a time ago... But a PVC figure is actually another good option to collect, except for the ability to pose, of course...

Was that "mecha-girls" trend imposed by the Gundam Build Fighters anime series or just a crazy idea of a creative cosplayer ???... What can you tell me about that, pal ???... And I would say that for a 10 years old girl, she’s a bit too curvy, like she were older, don’t you think so ???... OH, she’s beautiful anyway !!! =P =D

I didn't get only of those Gundam Girls to think that they are overpriced and quality ain't that fantastic. I think mecha girls dated back to 90s when G-Club mangazine published occasionally have some mecha girls featured. As for Macross, there was an old model kit of Macross Lady just that it isn't really nice by today's standard. I guess the trend of mecha girls has got to do with some of these cosplay influence as well. Even Kotobukiya produces mecha girls as well calling them Frame Arms Girls ^_^
