As I mentioned in my Ohayocon 2010 post, Echidna is my favorite character from Queen's Blade. She's just such a badass and does whatever the hell she wants. I actually wasn't a very big fan of her character design when I first saw figures of her, but while watching the anime her look really grew on me. I was really happy that I found her at the convention. Anyway, I took a bunch of pictures of her and a good amount of them are of her nude so viewer discretion is advised. =P
So to start out, here are the pictures of her wearing her armor and snake. Yeah, for people who don't know anything about the character, she doesn't wear panties or a bottom covering of any kind. She just has her snake coil around her waist and its tail comes down to cover her "special area". Anyway, here we go....
She has some pretty pointy boots. It makes it a little difficult to put her on the base. Also, her right foot doesn't quite fit flush on the base for some reason. It's not a very big deal though.
Those things coming off of her shield are also quite pointy. It's a pretty cool design.
A shot from behind. I was contemplating if these shots might constitute a Hentai label, but I figure it's just a butt so it's not that serious. Let me know if I should Hentai it anyway. Well, you also get a good view of her dagger holster and the back of her boots and leggings. (yeah, that's why I took this picture)
Again, it's interesting how much detail they put into her cool shield. Good view of the back side here.... Yeah, the back side of her shield....
Good side view here. Details of her snake short sword and her shoulder armor.
And we come full circle with a very nice cleavage shot. ^_^
Now it's time to take Echidna's "cloths" off. It's pretty interesting how the Castoff works. First you take her arms off. Then the silver snake thing that's directly under her neck comes off of the armor top and you pull the armor off her her boobs. It's really flexible. But it's a little difficult to work the armor out from under her ponytail. Then you put her arms back on. It kind of looks a little weird for her to have arms with shoulder armor and sleeves without the armor, but it isn't too bad. It would have been nice to have naked arms, but then you would have to deal with the joint creases. Anyway, then you have the snake bottom which is a lot simpler. It has a little latch in the front that comes off pretty easily and it's flexible enough to come off without any problems. As you can see on the figures database entry, Echidna comes with an alternate bottom that's this weird clear pink snake thing. I can only guess that it might have something to do with Melona. I don't remember that thing being in the first season of the anime. But yeah, NAKED PICTURES!!
Boobs! It would have been nice if there was a little more nipple detail, but it might have ran a risk of getting damaged by the castoff armor.
Yeah, I'm going to go all the way around her naked. Enjoy! ^_^
A good close up picture of her face and shoulder armor. And again, Boobs!
Side view. I like it.
Back to the rear shot. Yes, she does not have any vagina details. A little disappointing, but there are those pesky laws against that sort of thing in Japan to consider. Dammit. >_<
A close up of her butt and non-vagina.
The non-vagina doesn't look quite as bad from this angle and her butt looks really nice from here, too. And you can see the boobs pretty well! ^_^
The other side view. On one hand you can see her butt region better without the shield on this side, but you can't see her face. I think I like the other side better.
It ended up focusing on her dagger holster, but I still like the picture. A lot of good detail in this figure.
Picture taken from a low angle. Very nice.
And the final picture! BOOBS!!
Hope you enjoyed it. I might post more pictures eventually. Might do some pictures with the pink thing and I just realized I didn't do any from a top view. She has a pretty nice back. But that is one thing about this figure. It's best to display it at least at eye level, preferably a little higher. Unfortunately right now the Q's in my anime collection are on the very bottom of my shelf. Oh well, things always shift when I buy more. It will be up to the top shelf eventually. And I'll shut up now. Until next time! ^_^
