Planned to get this figure when she was released last time but due to budget constrain I had to give her a miss, strangely the same thing happen to Alter Fauna as well. Many months later I found her on bargain at HLJ at 60% discount, so I quickly ordered one for myself. My friend and I thought the stock gonna be quite limited for the bargain, but HLJ still have her instock now and still at 60% discount and at least 8 people that I know have bought her.
Fauna comes from the eroge Megachu!, which was also release as an erotic OAV. If I am not mistaken she was one of the first Max Factory figure to comes with a POLO system, which means she can be totally cast-off. This was also the reason for her hefty price tag at the time. Sorry no cast-off pics here =P
The seamlines where her clothes can be taken of is visible in this shot, can’t seem to get it to close properly.
Love the dynamism of her hair and dress, the illustration that this sculpt was based on had her playing in a fountain. Would have love to do the photoshoot of her in a fountain but I probably gonna get some weird stares from the public.
I have always found her face to be a bit off, kinda too chubby. I would have gotten the Alter version if she was on sale, but she’s still at normal price at the moment. Guess I’ll just have to wait.
Her dress comes in two piece, a white piece on the outside and a transparent pink piece on the inside.
Not much to complain about Max Factory Fauna, except her slightly chubbier face. The sculpt and paint job are all perfect and the POLO system is quite a nice gimmick though I wish I can properly close-up the seamlines.
