This Mig-60 girl was part of an earlier Mechamusume trading figure set and now she’s blown up to a larger scale with a slightly altered pose – her leg is bent, revealing mechanical bits. If you know British slang, you’ll find the previous sentence really hilarious. Go figure. Released by Tora no Ana under their Fine Scenery line in October 2006, Mig-60 unfortunately looks like crap especially when compared to the trading figure version.
Some photos first! I’ll just caption the pictures as they go along for a quick review. I have amazingly little free time these days, barely even watching one episode of anime every couple of days.
Man-machine interface: A mishmash of fetishes ranging from World War 2, fighter planes, garters, blondies, Russians, nekomimi, pantsu and lolicon.
The bent knee was a new addition from the scaleup and it’s quite a good one. The revealing of mechanical interior further strengthens the hybridisation of musume and machine. And apparently, Russians don’t wear skirts. Ask Hinano.
She has an extra item slung over her shoulder. I can’t remember what it was, but doesn’t it resemble a fuel tank? Fashionable items in Mecha-musume society: Fuel tank handbags. The sling is a cheap leathery cut of string. Ugly.
And for the final picture, it’s so powerful that it deserves its own paragraph. The nekomimi hat is removable. For it to fit so snugly, the sculptors concluded that there was but one way. The way of the Oyaji.
Stick to the trading figures at all costs. I LAUGH AT YOU LIAN!
