Preview Kotobukiya’s Mass Effect Bishoujo Tali


Given that we just saw Tali painted at San Diego Comic Con, it’s no surprise that orders for her are about to open. She’s certainly been one of the more hyped Bishoujo releases: since the very beginning people have been clamoring for her, and I think a lot of us were disappointed (but maybe not surprised) when we got FemShep first.

The final sculpt is pretty much dead-accurate to the art, but I’m honestly not 100% sure how I feel about it. I think the details are great, and the colors look fabulous. But something about the pose seems a little… unnatural to me. Stiff, I think. I don’t even mind that she doesn’t have an alternate unmasked head (probably because I’m distracted by the Shunya-butt), but I do wish her posing felt a little more natural.
