Mai Shiranui (Max Factory, 1/6 scale) is the world-famous bouncy ninja girl from SNK’s long-running Fatal Fury and King of Fighters series. From what I remember, this figure sold out with the quickness upon its initial announcement and Max Factory had to kick off another print run. I picked up Mai a while ago from this second batch.

Let’s start with the cons. Her head has a couple of oddities: her ears are very prominent, particularly when viewing her face straight on. Speaking of her face, her eyes appear a bit unfocused, as if her right eye were looking a tad upwards and her left eye were looking leftwards.

But when you turn her around and view her from behind, those issues vanish and you’re left to view the pros, and goddamn, what a view. You know Mai’s steez and this plastic rendition goes above and beyond in upholding her fan servicey reputation. She’s one of those figures where you can display her at only a few different angles, and the three-quarters view looking at her left side works best.

I own a lot of figures, and it can be difficult finding space for them all. Some of them get put on a shelf, some go in the display case, some of them get put on whatever flat space is handy. I’ll often cycle my figures as I get new ones, older ones getting pushed further back on the shelves to make room for the new hotness. Mai, however, has never moved. She’s always been on my desk, next to the external hard drive and my computer monitor. She’s one of my favorite figures and I don’t see her moving any time soon.

  1. Another one I can comment first. Mai has some nice tits and her ass is awesome. Nice job to the artist that did this figure.

  2. Wirama says:

    Mai is always a classic and one of the must have figure. This figure is a 10+ because of her classic signature posse that she always use in any figure.

    Hey there, been reading your reviews. Nice work! Not sure if you see these older messages but I just recently bought this figure and was wondering if you had any problems with leaning on this Mai.

    Good review. I do have a question though, was it hard to get her on all the pegs evenly? mine seems to only want to go on the feet peg but not the tassle pegs =(

      I don’t remember that it was; I don’t think I’ve ever removed this figure from its base but I don’t recall having difficulty getting it properly seated on it.
