Figma Strength and other recent figures

Earlier this week I received a package of my figma Strength and some things I got from a recent HLJ sale. More pictures of each figure can be found here.
The main event here is the figma Strength. She is a great figma and has the usual top notch sculpting and paint. Her tail is made of that wonderful semi translucent plastic that DM's and BGS's horns were made out of. Her robotic hands are a lot more poseable then I was expecting and they actually have more joints then 3A robot hands do. However they do feel somewhat delicate particularly the joint where the thumb attaches to the hand. The included support pieces are essential for off the ground posies and they work well I just wish the were clear. (i photoshopped them out of most of the pictures it was in such as the one below)
And as you can see from some of my pictures her shirt and hood are removable. I originality saw some pictures of this on 4chan thinking it was just the work of a wacky Japanese customizer as some figmas outfits could be removed by cutting the figure apart (Kyon's jacket and Canaan's shirt are good examples) but that was not the case and her clothing is easily removed. *Please note to make it fit on a Shinki you need to unscrew her upper torso.
The next figure falls under the category of "why does this even exist?" its a figure of the spelunker from the "classic" NES game spelunker. Spelunker is well known as a Kusoge (essentially the video game equivalent of a B-movie) It's a game so easy to die in that it transcends frustration and becomes humorous. (at least for me) Most notably is how you die from the slightest of jumps. (witch is humorously referenced on the package)
If anyone is interested in trying out the game you can play it online here and for more info on the game and it's sequels look here
Next up is super action statue(s) Echoes ACT2 & ACT3. When I first got the figure of his user Koichi I thought he was underwhelming. Missing piece aside I think this set is even more underwhelming then he was, but that's not to say he is a bad figure. Just and overpriced small figure.
Also two of my pictures from this set are on the front page of myfigurecollection!
