The reactions of the uninitiated are always sure to either amuse or make one shake their heads, as evidenced by the response poor Ikaros here received this morning. Still with family over the holidays, poor Ikaros' angelic appearance didn't quite stop the cries of "Who is that whore?" from a passing relative. Unwarranted as the epithet may be, there's no missing the angeloid's sexy getup though.
Still, fans are pretty used to seeing Ikaros in her usual garb when it comes to figures. The real noteworthy part of this version from Griffon is her fairly sizable wings, a rarity amidst most angeloid figures, let alone just Ikaros' offerings. They definitely add a nice touch to her design, and of course I adore her ribbon-entwined twintails hanging down over her back.
I may not be entirely sure which Ikaros figure I'd pick if I had to choose just one, but this latest is definitely near the top. Get ready to fork over ¥8.800 when she arrives to heat up March!
