Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo FemShep Gets Yet Another Update

Well, it sure has been a rollercoaster ride for Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo FemShep from Mass Effect! I have never seen fans have this much influence over a figure–her original art was changed to make her less “sexualized” (aka no heels, which I understand but don’t agree with). I did like the prototype, especially when we got to take a close look at her–such a stunning face!

Then she got a second round of changes, and her makeup was severely toned down due to fans thinking it didn’t fit her… even though part of her character creation involves eyeshadow. Now she’s getting a THIRD update, and her face is changed a little bit again! On one hand I think she looks really close to the game now, and very lovely. But on the other she’s getting farther away from Shunya’s art–which is what Mass Effect fans want, but not what I’ve come to expect from this line. Well, I guess you can’t please everyone!
