Gun X Sword – Carmen 99 by Max Factory
Max Factory released this Carmen 99 figure in October 2006, the 99 is a nickname based on her bust dimensions in centimeters, this I gathered from the Gun X Sword anime I rented several years ago, now it is available in a collection release from Funimation, which I may end up buying.
Carmen’s pose suits the character based on what I remember about the anime, she was a sexy good ‘bad’ girl out for herself vixen who used her charms for her benefit and tease those with less charms than her. From the looks of it she is probably pointing something out to Wendy or Van about her vehicle since she’s twirling a key around her finger.
Painting is excellent overall as expected with a Max Factory figure, casting has some minor bumps and seams which add a bit of realism around the clothing areas.
With this sly expression, you know Carmen 99 is up to no good. If I remember correctly, I think the key fits in the ’cowbell’ around her neck.
Close up of Carmen’s outfit shows nice details with the cloths wrinkles. Unlike the Queen’s Gate Ivy figure, you can stare between her breasts and the strap across her breasts. I wonder if she’s commando under her pants?
