I tend to purchase until I can have bodies for all the weapon options I'd like to see & if it gets a bit more economical, I'm likely to roll over the fence on the ones I'm iffy on. This would increase my purchases a wee bit(z), pun intended!

Did the face ever get fixed on this?

Haven't ordered anything lately due to money issues and was thinking of adding this to an order next payday.

But if she still look like Stephen King then I think i'll pass. ( Which is a shame as other than the face it's a fantastic sculpt. )

She was corrected before I got my 2 copies.  Her face is perfect with all the little problems fixed.

I'm still going to try to have to sculpt or paint some hair on the nape of her neck 'though, right?

I liked her little turned up nose. It made her seem arrogant. And the reason the region beneath the nose looked too broad is that the face was a thin oval. Not everybody's supermodel perfect.

Might have to add one to the list then.  Would be nice to have a close up on the store page though.

For the second version of this figure that showed up on facebook today, I believe "medium/round/comfy" will suit the overall figure much better than the other choice of "small/pert/athletic."

Think:  medium/round and the potential for a little bit of  :boing:.

Very excited about the topless version of 40mm Kalee.

Hasslefree Minis Kev says "do you want small/ pert / athletic or medium/round/ 'comfy' boobs?

Had to pinch this from the fb page, 'cause I don't do that stuff, but I have to vote for round/ 'comfy' boobs C- DD range.  They should be similar to her originals on HFH017 Kalee    Just my personal preference really.

She's a bit more than comfy :D

You know how I was going to say "not too big. Whatever's the right size for her body and will also fit inside the armoured version"?

Well those look a little bit too big and they don't look like they'll fit inside the armoured version. What's this chaos mutation? Variation between sculpts? It's not as if that hasn't happened before when the same sculptor does various versions of the same character. They still do seem a bit hetfy 'though.

kev says they will squeeze in and she doesnt look as if she would be short of willing volunteers to help her get her armour on!

 :metoo:  What Vampy said.  I whole-heartedly approve of her proportions! :thumbup: :lalala:

I was looking at the photo on the fb page and the comments that resulted and I have to say: Practicality is not a part of the picture, it's FANTASY.  Why can't some people let go of the real world?

Yup. Tits get rather squeezed inside an armour. As a policeman, I see some of my well endowed female workmates have their assets truly hidden behind the armour vest.

Some women are just good at hiding them.  I once worked with a girl, who looked rail thin at work.  Turns out she had a chest much larger than her head and a body to go with it.

Next you'll be telling me she went to the same armourer who did Barbara Windsor's bra for Carry on Camping. That could even explain why she's topless too.

I just saw the new photos...not keen on the idea of a helmet, and didn't think there was anything wrong with her nipples either.  I think they look odd now.  Is there going to be an alternate head option without helmet?  Is it going to be an open faced helmet?

Have to agree - preferred the previous nipples. Axe looks great  and interested to see how the helmet turns out...

Yes, photos shown on Hasslefree facebook page.

Helmet!?  Hopefully it isn't going to be the closed face helmet seen on the deathdealer images.  The figure needs a feminine face.  It isn't as if one couldn't see she is female from the torso  :lol:, but the feminine character should also be apparent through the face.  Perhaps a hood would work as seen on the figure below?  Or at least an open faced helmet. (Please  :smile:)
