Hey guys. I had this conversation with some friends and while it wasn't intensely interesting overall I thought it might make for good discussion.

I don't know if you've heard of a game called 7th Dragon 2020-II? It's the latest in a long line of games from SEGA. It's a typical dungeon crawler RPG, nothing inherently amazing or stand-out-ish about it. Anyways...Max Factory released an incredibly limited edition figurine based on Katanako, who is the katana wielding samurai character of the game. I've been in to this game lately (hence my avatar).



It's an amazing figure, no doubt, I actually want it myself and I'm not a figurine collector...but the price has skyrocketed since the figure has been gaining popularity. Anyways, the discussion ended up being about how detailed some of these figures are getting. Most notably it came down to the design of her pantsu area...I want to say they are nsfw but they aren't inherently pornographic. It's two shots of the underside of the figure.

Essentially we just talked about how it's kind of funny to think how some actual effort when in to this kind of detail, and we kind of passed the torch around on what we thought of it, whether appropriate or not, if it's some kind of message depicting where humanity is going, or if it's even just a specific thing to Japan itself. This isn't the only figure with this sort of thing going on, it's just one of the better examples (in my opinion).

What do you think of this kind of detail? Do you think it's artistic? Just plain sexy? Perverted? Gross? Normally these angles will likely never be seen under normal display conditions of course, but I think it's interesting still. Pleased to hear your opinions...

It feels like a bit too much. Is the game kinda fanservy or is this detail random? The figure looks awesome but I could definitely do without details like that.

There's some game play footage. It's quite certain that this game is neither "fan-servy" nor was it meant to even really be pushing any boundaries. It's just an RPG with chibi in-game graphics.

The design of the figure is actually surprising in this regard.

How can you complain about too much detail? lolwut?
If there is a problem then go buy or look at basic figures with little to no joints.


Sorry but I love figures,I love detail(Go figure) and I am a collector of them so I highly disagree with any statement saying there is too much detail.

The outer detail is terrific. The nether regions are going a little too far, but I know why they do it. Some Otaku are really into their figures and they want as much detail as possible. I don't buy figures myself. I don't think I ever would. I am happy buying anime blu rays and japanese rock music.

I'd say the panty detail is indeed pushing it and not needed but the overall detail is amazing and overshadows the part you can't see without looking on the bottom side. If you buy one just don't put it at a high angle

If they expect me to pay what they ask for it, it better be there. But that pic is a massive over exaggeration of the lady parts.

It's never too detailed. You pay good cash for a figurine it better be detailed as humanly possible.
