Adventure Kartel Penumbra

Adventure Kartel Penumbra
06 May 2012 03:16:41

Today I received my last figure from April, Penumbra from ThreeA's Adventure Kartel series and tought I'd make a review of sorts about her. (From now on I want to try and make a post every time a receive a figure or figures, I know I've said this before but I'm going to try again.)

It is unclear weather Penumbra is a separate character from Little Shadow or just a variant but for the purpose of convenience I shall refer to her as a variant of Little Shadow.

The big difference between her and LS is her outfit. The main draw here is her jacket witch is well made as usual, however it seems to be of the same design as the Oyabun's it even has the pouch for swords on the back! It's a nice jacket even if we have seen it multiple times before.

On to the rest of her outfit She has a t shirt with some strange design that looks like one of the creatures from "where the wild things are" with a large uniboob. I don't realy care for it so I flipped it around. In addition she has a short black skirt made of the same material as the shirt.

Her accessories are Identical to the original Little Shadow (although she is missing an alternate pair of shoes) Penumbra includes an alternate fist hand, a skull shaped bomb and a messenger bag. Her bag is of the same design as LS but is black with some nice white highlights.

The main highlight of this figure for me is the articulation it is mutch improved (particularly in the legs) from the older 3A female figures. The improved articulation helps her take mutch more dynamic poses. Like this Iron Man style pose.

Or this...

The best older female figures could do this pose was this...

Also it seems that the ankle joints don't seem quite as delicate as on the older figures, but I still would be very careful with them. (If you don't remember I broke two of the ankle joints on my original four TQ's)

And here is a comparison with the original Little Shadow as you can see Penumbra is mutch taller. (But that could just be because of her heals) The difference between the amount of weathering on the two while not as noticeable in the photos is crazy in person.

More pictures here.

Oh man... I ended up writing a lot, I don't know if I could write this mutch for every figure.

Anyways that's all for today!
