The human mage is the most recent Lineage II figure that I’ve acquired. I’m uncertain of Lineage II’s popularity in Japan; it doesn’t seem the likeliest property for PVC adaptation. Regardless, I’m happy that Good Smile Company is making figures based on that game. The human mage is in 1/8 scale and unfortunately for her, doesn’t receive the dignity of a name. She also suffers an additional indignity, as described below.
I really like the asymmetry of her outfit. Her right leg is clad in a thigh-high stocking and her left in sheer pantyhose. Perhaps she’s taken fashion pointers from Flo-Jo. I also like her sculpt; she’s given a realistic body build, with additional muscle definition on her legs and stomach. Definitely very nice.
I’m not a big fan of Mage’s hair. I know that they needed to stay consistent with the art but I don’t really like bob cuts or afros or whatever her hairdo is called. She looks odd when viewed from her left and I think that’s partially due to her poofy hairstyle.
Good Smile Company gets in on the cast-off craze but they needn’t have bothered because Mage is sans nipples. As such she looks conspicuously unnatural when bereft of her bustier. In the interest of preserving the moral fiber of society as well as keeping this post work-safe, I’ve eschewed inlining a picture of the half-naked mage, but you can see her in all her bare-chested glory in this picture.
While her style is a bit different, I think Mage is a great figure, one that I’m very happy to have. I love Lineage II’s character designs and I hope that Good Smile Company keeps up their good work and continues producing figures in this line.
One of the odd things about Mage is that I don’t really have any idea how old she is supposed to be. She looks like she could be anywhere from fifteen to thirty years old.
Let’s see what she’s hiding under her skirt.
