We complain all the time for the massive gender imbalance of PVC figurines. "Why are there so little males?" we cry. Max Factory has answered our prayers with the expensive 1/8 PVC figurine of Van from GunxSword. They are secretly and slowly increasing the prices of all their figurines. While it could be due to rising production costs thanks to greater emphasis on quality, I suspect they have realised that fans are stupid and will buy anything for any price.

The Bosspoint of this figurine is that it is Van and he is male. Beyond that, other Bosspoints include the really dynamic pose and the Whipsword. Exaggerated dynamic pose, with uber warped humanly-impossible joints. Finally the base has a strong red X on it too.

My knees can’t bend forward. But this pose is really actiony!

Another view of him.

The base is cool and the face is constipated.

I am so getting this one.

    28CM…for a 1/8 is really BIG!
    “Why are there so little males?”……..Because we are males.
    PS:That sword is big too.

    I seriously need a figurine of Ukiya Shun right now. He turns me on. Ultra Senpu Giri, Shinkuu missile.

    I wonder if it’s balanced correctly… It would be funny if you could rotate the hat and make a jingle sound.

Do not use any < and > for your own sake. It will end the comment there and then. Also, there is an automatic IQ filter which weeds out comments made by those who accidentally got transported from the stone age.
