Today we’re taking a quick look at a figure I got some time last October – it’s Amakuni’s rendition of Miya Utsu-tsu, from Gatchaman Crowds. This figure was given to me as a gift after mentioning to a friend that I didn’t have any green haired girls in my figure collection – a pleasant surprise indeed! However, I didn’t really recognise the character as a result. What little I know of Gatchaman in general is what was presented to me in Tatsunoko vs Capcom (which is a pretty fun fighting game, but not a great font of ). In other words, basically nothing.
Despite knowing so little about her, I still like this figure a lot. Utsu-tsu has an attractive and distinctive design, sporting a top notch ‘lingerie and high heels’ outfit (a personal favourite). Amakuni did a great job capturing her image, I feel – this is a high quality piece of work. I’m a particular fan of her hair, and I really like the detail in her eyes, as well. Since she’s not wearing much, the figure would live and die on its body sculpt, but I think that turned out well too. She does take up a lot of shelf space though, due to the curled tips of her hair and the wide stand that accomodates them – something to consider, if you fancy picking this one up for yourself.
