Hmm, interesting. I think I like the redhead the most. It's a shame there isn't one available with black hair, but that can always be modded I suppose.

As the industry sadly seems disinterested in providing us with too many different ethnic variants, I wonder if the redhead could pass for a mixed-race or light-skinned Person of Colour ?

As ever it's pointless to base a decision purely on the evidence of the promo pics, but this does look promising.

Hasn't this one been around for a while? Or at least, listed previously? I recall seeing the blond version a while ago, but the other hair colours are new.

Yeah, the exact same blonde one has been on Ebay for a while, but AFAIK it was touted as being already available.

These are not officially due until Q1 of 2020 though, apparently.


Having been stung on a delayed Kimi sculpt pre-order on Ebay recently, I'm only willing to pre-order from GianToy now, so we'll see if they put them up.

Yeah, I thought it looked familiar....

It doesn't "do" much for me, but I suppose it is nice to have some variety when it comes to features.

So why is she a pirate? She doesn't have an eyepatch or really bad mascara.

If I recall, this head showed up a while ago on a product announcement for a 'sexy pirate' costume ... which was really just like a typical Halloween costume, not anything actually pirate-y. ;p

When they originally announced a (now canceled) figure with this same head sculpt, it was intended to be a pirate "babe" based on Jesse Jane (Adult film actress) from one of the highest budgeted porn films ever made.

LOL, yes, that's the one I was thinking of. I'm guessing they now have a bunch of leftover heads... ;p

Got it. I've seen the sequel but not the original.

Aaah right, I was wondering if this was some half-hearted attempt at Penelope Cruz's character from the PotC movie she was in, but seeing the above makes more sense (kind of, it's still not a great likeness). I quite like the outfit, but I assume it didn't stay on for long  Laughing  

I suppose TBL has the 'pirate' market covered with their Arhian figure, even though I like a lot of the 'porno pirate' costume details above rather more than Arhian's.

I might still pick up one of the redheads, but I'll wait to see some in-hand photos.

I've never seen the adult films (Googling it, there was apparently two of them, and they look to have a hell of a budget for adult films). Some of the costumes looked quite nice. But as you said, GW, I can't imagine any of them stayed on very long.

Oh the level of cheesiness is making me about to be sick... Smile But I agree, the costumes look elaborate enough to be in a non-adult pirate movie.

The Stagnetti movies were banned in Australia. The censorship laws make it illegal to import a movie with both sex scenes and violence - even special-effects violence. They got around that by editing the movie into two discs. The first disc had all the sex scenes removed and the second one had all the violent scenes removed.

Gee, that had to be fun to watch that way.

I wouldn't know; I saw a torrented version. I was watching a documentary about Australian censorship and they used that movie as an example of how stupid the laws are.

UPDATE:

I picked up one of these sculpts cheap recently, and (skintone aside) it's fairly accurately represented by the promo pics, if not an accurate depiction of Ms Jane herself. I got the redhead, as to my eyes those facial features really don't work with blonde hair (I'd still prefer a black-haired option but we'll see). I wanted to see if - sensitivities over it's slightly exaggerated features aside - this sculpt could pass as a character of indeterminate Middle-Eastern or at a pinch Hispanic ethnicity, and under the correct lighting conditions I guess it could (at least until someone realises the opportunity they're squandering by not producing more ethnically-diverse sculpts properly themselves).

In terms of actual skintone, it's a perfect match for a Wheat Jaiou Euro body (which only adds to it's originally-conceived 'porn star' credentials). I'm assuming it'll also look OK on a less 'buxom' Jaiou wheat body but I don't have one spare.

Not really 'action' figure material, but a perfectly adequate 'gangster's moll' or the like (or indeed 'porn star' if you have, erm, use for one).

One quibble: the ears are ridiculously disproportionately small.

I’d be curious to see some pics of it in-hand ...

OK, here we are (slightly NSFW to better show off the colour match):

^ Pale red filter - looks best under this light IMO.

^ Those ridiculous ears (actually not so much too small as just oddly positioned) - luckily the hair is 'springy' enough that you need never see them - or that ugly neck joint. The hair is also less 'bouffant' than in the promos, which is just fine by me.
Note: See also photographer's pasty English finger for contrast and comparison - I may make this a dedicated feature of future shoots.  Laughing


In conclusion, this is OK, but not much more than that to be honest. It's not actually a bad sculpt or anything, but the possibilities are limited with that look, IMHO. Great if you can pick it up cheap (my seller was willing to negotiate), but again, it only really colour-matches with a Jaiou wheat body. Under certain light conditions though, I reckon this will pass for a Hispanic character if you have specific need of one.

Now that I'm more familiar with it however, the facial features remind me not of Jesse Jane but of an exaggerated version of a certain 1970s-present day British actress in her arguable 'prime' (especially around the eyes), but as it's now spoilt the Hispanic look for me, I won't say who it is. Very Happy

Hmm, doesn’t look too bad in some of those first pics. Are those hands stock from the Jiaou? They look huge in a couple shots, but I like the nails.

I wonder, are you talking about Helen Mirren...?

The hands are from a long-forgotten set from years ago, but I thought they'd look good with this figure. They do look a little large, but I'm not sure if that's mostly down to them being spread wide (the others in the set look fine). It's a fairly common set, now I think about it, but the nail colour is a rare variant. Happily, they are a very good match for this body.

Stryker2011 wrote:I wonder, are you talking about Helen Mirren...?
Heh, no, but of similar classy vintage (like a fine wine). It's completely the wrong body for the person I'm thinking of, if that helps any. Smile

The head to body match looks pretty close. Joanna Lumley (but she was more attractive)?

10/10!  

In her younger modelling days of course (and yes, much more attractive)

Of course... I loved her guest appearances on Are You Being Served? Unfortunately, the stills are all at least somewhat grainy.

It's good to have finally found a compatible head for one of those pneumatic Jaiou euro bodies, I suppose. Now all I have to deal with is the skin maintenance. Neutral
