Wow guys, who would've ever thought we were complaining about TOO MUCH detail

But then I know a lot of Koto fans are looking for Koto style

I wouldn't say there's too much detail. I'd say the detailing is off. Her clothing looks like it's made out of cement, imo.

That's it exactly. Like stone or concrete, instead of leather or vinyl.

I bought some powdered water, but I don't know what to add to it.

The face is incredible. Everything else... not so much. What a shame.

The portrait looks really good, however, the body type does not seem to match her athleticism.

Nice job by the sculptors but this figure is just SJW Marvel. Modern Marvel approved body positivity type: small breast and narrow hips. Plus no cleavage and no guns (at least no swap out guns shown).

I assume there is a market for this, and for those who like it, I think the Koto team did a nice job translating modern Marvel into 3D. But does this figure have broad appeal?

Some may think Bishoujo figures go too far with the sexiness, but it seems that's what's keeping the lights on at Koto. As they seem to be selling well. We've all seen much of their ArtFX+ line (Marvel Now, DC New 52, Star Wars) ending up with surplus on the clearance racks. I am not sure how well this figure will do.

I think the build is fine. She was a ballerina after-all. The face and hair are also lovely. Just the suit/texture is wrong.

Speaking of texture, the I think Koto went overboard on the Black Panther Premier.

The whole head is great. I don’t mind the body suit texture. What gets me is Black Widow statues get the most boring poses. Here we have one of Marvel’s top fighters, top weapons experts, who also used to swing around like Daredevil, Spider-Man and Spider-Woman, and her statues 90% of the time are just her standing around, maybe with a gun or something. So much more that can be done with her.

SJW Marvel indeed. Fat with no boobs. This is one of the unsexiest figures I've ever seen of a character who's supposed to be sexy. HARD pass.
