Wave's tiny figures are fairly hit or miss, but when they hit, they really hit. Nadia hasn't been around for twenty years, but Wave's stepped up to the plate to bring us this adorable Renewal version of the titular heroine. I've always been a fan of her design, and even besides that it's nice to see some of anime's few darker-skinned characters showing up in PVC.
In any case, I find Nadia here to be just fantastic, especially for the extremely tiny scale. Everything about her is spot on, from her unique outfit to the glittering gold of her trademark jewelry. I'd love to see her in a larger size, but for the price of a Beach Queen you certainly can't beat the results! You've got a long way to wait before you can spend that ¥4,400 though, as she'll be making a splash next June.
