Exactly. It will be a beautiful, sensual representation of the character, I don't understand what are people so fussed about.
I'm a huge Mai fan, nontheless I like this much more than the Kinetiquettes one.

Question: HMO shows us that portrait with no explanation, do you see Mai? Can you imagine - or guess- it could be Mai?
Another question: Do you see Mai through that portrait, or do you WANT to see her?
When I look at the Kinetiquettes portrait, I see Mai. And I don’t need to see the suit to be sure.
When I look at the HMO portrait, I see a lot of potential characters, but not Mai.
Again, nothing to explain, nothing to understand

I own 20+ Wonder Woman pieces and they vary wildly in artistic style and understand may like or dislike some, but they are all her to me.

Iīm not said that this invalidate her.... but letīs start from the beginning.... Wonder Woman is not a good character for comparation, because she is being around for some 80 years, appear in a lot of medias, have several generations of artists working on her, her story was adapted, she was published several times, DC made 2 reboots in their Universe, thereīs a lot of parallel histories, movies, games, animations, live action series, animation series, etc... itīs an endless material to submerge...

Mai have nothing of this, she have the same face and general look since she first appears in some 30 years ago, and she is basically a girl in a fighting game, she does not have comics or movies and animations, ok thereīs one or another here and there, but all minor things, compared to WW or any other Marvel/DC hero, so the general look of her is from Fatal Fury and KOF, and of course with the time and technology she was being drawn with more details, but always have the same way, face, dress, etc...

Now with WW you have dozens of alternative versions you could find inspiration, thatīs why you have some 20 statues of her, but with Mai no, and HMO is not being inspired by none version of her here, they placed a doll face there, beautiful yes, but a face that could be anyone... and then is just put on her dress, a little of flowers here and there... boom! You have Mai, but wait, that face doesnīt even look japanese to me. I wanna see that girl I know from the games that I play, Iīm not gonna want one diferent IF I can have the right look of her.

Now letīs gonna be honest, take a very good look in that face, now take look on the face of HMO Morrigan... is the same face, just with diferent hair and eyes collor, even the mouth is equal (a little open), both have that triangular doll face, is not Mai face, if there was only her on the market I would buy HMOīs version for sure, but I īm happy to have options.

Well, just my two cents on this subject, it's all valid, both are gourgeous pieces of art, and if you like HMO version more, ok go on and be happy with it!

Okay, it's not the core classic version of the character Mai. That's fair to say. I see it as the character adapted into HMO style, much like other statues I've seen of her. She is developing a nice assortment of interpretations which I think will grow in time. I like HMO and Kinequette versions myself.

The argument could probably be used for almost every depiction of Mai ever to be honest. She has been depicted in a huge variety of art styles. This screams Mai to me WAY more than her depictions in KoFXIV or Dead or Alive 5 and 6
