I may or may not check the Phicen website every day.
This is gorgeous!! I don't know how I could NOT buy this!
But WHY not include that awesome sword?? Weird choice.
And I hope the armor can be removed.

What a beautiful face!!

Pretty cute. Looks like they’re bringing back the Mercy Dante head sculpt.

One nit: they need to stop showing accessories in the photos that aren’t included. (It’s one thing to show a clothing and head sculpt set on a body that isn’t included, because you need to see how it looks as a whole — but weapons...?)

Very cool. I think it's a good balance between the regular stupid sexy armors and fantasy realism, not too much or too little of everything.

Oh THAT's why she looks familiar! I really liked Mercy back then, but got HT BW Winter Soldier instead. No regrets. Smile

Yeah, the Mercy head sculpt is one of my favorites (I ended up buying two extra heads to use for other projects). The armor, despite being very fantasy in a lot of elements, looks very well done.

Like several of you mentioned, this is totally fantasy, but still manages to come across as plausible, and I find that very neat. Nice choice of head sculpt, too. And I agree that the gnarly sword should have been included in the set or not put in the promotional photos at all.

I've always wondered how would TBLeague treat a fully-armored female character. I've wanted to see them try for some time now but I pretty much gave up and thought they'd always be going for simple, skimpy/sexy designs (which I don't mind either, actually). Not sure if any of you remember but they came out with something that had a tight, silver body suit on with very small pieces of armor attached to it. I thought it was horrible and that this was going to be their best attempt at a fully armored but sexy female figure.

Well, I'm glad I was wrong. They finally did one and imo it turned out absolutely beautiful. I love design and the the worn, rustic look. That beautiful face looks amazing in the helmet with the visor up. I don't mind them taking the word "breast plate" completely literally since I want a fully armored figure that's still sexy. It's really a shame that the sword isn't included since it fits perfectly but the spear is nice too.

The only thing I'm not too crazy about is the battle skirt. It doesn't look bad but I would've preferred them to take the fully armored look all the way with something like this:

TBLeague - NEW PRODUCT: TBLeague Imperial Guardian 1/6 SGT-EK001-5

I'll be getting that figure as well but I like the design and colors of the armor on this TBLeague figure so much more. The "battle skirt" just looks like they cut corners on an otherwise perfect fully armored but sexy figure. I have the Lucifer Michael (which also has a "battle skirt" that I feel the same way about) and while I like the design and the fact the pieces were made so that it still articulates fairly well this TBLeague armor looks like real plate armor. It actually looks like it's been in battles and can take a beating.

The battle skirt does remind me a bit on Lady Sif. Scaletta made a nice figure for it.

Oh I never was on a Scaletta project so far (but just made interest in the Witcher HS) so this doesnt sound like it went over very well with you Striker?
And you have to assemble it completely?

Yes, you get a bunch of loose parts (no body), and absolutely no clue as to how to put the damn thing together — from what I was told, video instructions, or some such, are to follow, but it sounds like there is gluing and modding of sorts to be done by each purchaser — who spent nearly $900 for this f’ing thing, and it doesn’t come already put together. To say that I will NEVER get involved in one of these types of projects again (particularly since it was started back in February of 2017), and once we were sent all the parts, many of us discovered we were missing things. I have a body (the one they said they based it on — a TBL — on the way from Giantoy (so there’s an additional $60), which it turns out we also have to make adjustments to (slicing off part of her bust) to be able to get the individual armor pieces to fit together. I’m also currently waiting on the missing parts, which were supposedly sent from the Ukraine, to arrive — but that could be another month wait. There is nothing attached to any of the individual pieces (straps, etc.) to attach all the armor together — hence the not included instructions would have been damn helpful. It’s one thing to have to attach stuff and assemble pieces on say a normal TBL figure, or military figure — as those come with the pieces designed to be assembled without having to modify or add to them — and they are generally under $200; but to spend close to $1000 only to find out, the work isn’t over, is unacceptable to me. I was basically told it would be an even longer wait, and even more expensive if we (the buyers) were crazy enough to think these would have been finished figures we were buying.

What body is that? The legs make it look like a s22/s23, but I'm not sure.

Gotta agree with what everyone else has been saying! A very nice surprise, this one. Doubt I'll buy the whole thing, since I have no real need for it, but it's very appealing. Will definitely try to pick up some loose parts for various projects. 

I even like how she looks in that final photo with most of the armour pieces removed. Could easily work as some kind of medieval/steampunk-inspired haute couture, as well.

A Dark Souls/ Soul Calibur Hilde themed Tbleague figure....you know this is the 4th time the head was used. Since this is a medieval fantasy figure based on two games, How about making the hair Blue, Purple, or Green? Splurge a little

Also, its 2020. Miss USA and Universe were WOC. Can Tbleague make a WOC? Its been 7 years. I'm a POC, I buy tbleague. Is it impossible to make female figures the same color as the male figures (Black and Sparta) and vis-a-versa (Pale and Newer-Suntan)

I was definitely thinking of "Hilde" the first time I saw this, also. She'd make an awesome figure (and she doesn't have a battle skirt). I like her design better in Soul Calibur 4 than in the new one:

Man...the more I think about that battle skirt the more it bugs me. I honestly love the look of this armored figure more than any of the other armored female figures out there except for that battle skirt. It would've been PERFECT with actual armor pieces and mesh/chain mail. Why did they have to cut corners on this one crucial part after making everything else look so perfect. I guess there's still hope that there'll be a version 2 some day...

I like this one but then I like fantasy style characters in a universe where magic is a common occurrence I have always wondered how things would diverge from our reality as in armour designs etc.

I have one query though with the helmet, the eye slot is positioned on her forehead ?

What gets me as always she has short hair , why can't they do this for male figures ?

Thanks for the info that is really valuable information. I thought you get the whole figure here too...Crazy that the part come without straps even..Shocked
I don't know how many figures he sells for each project, but I guess around 20-30? MAybe he should calculate prices for whole figures and sell only these prebuild.

You can modify it a bit I guess. Use trousers and remove the skirt and maybe there is another thing you could use instead. Like small metal plates. But of course you can't make it into full seamless armor.

Meryl -- of course, we are all waiting for some PoC tbleague figures. Either full boxed figures or bodies, though I'd prefer loose bodies since I don't collect the actual tbleague figures myself. New body designs are obviously welcome, too, but if some reason that was too much work for them, I don't see why they couldn't even just do the existing range of bodies in a different colour silicone??!!! I mean, they did it with the basketball player body. Why not the others?? They can make pure white , red, blue-grey figures in the same molds as the others, so no actual darker human skintones is just glaring at this point. 

And re: the skirt.... I rather like it. But then I'm looking at this figure more from a fashion perspective, since it's already not fully 'realistic', if that makes sense.

Nicely-executed, but as usual I have little use for armour, more authentic or not. Plenty of tempting loose parts, though.

Personally I like the skirt and top combo on their own terms, just not as a credible part of any kind of battle armour. Smile

Nice head sculpt - same hairstyle yes, but isn't the Galaxy Soldier version slightly more Asian in appearance? *


And yeah, I think most of us are drumming our fingers impatiently waiting for some WOC figures from TBL.




* EDIT: No, I stand corrected - the promo shots on Phicen's site of Galaxy Soldier's head sculpt look almost identical to this one.

I'm also seeing some hints of Arhian Pirate in the facial features of this one though, the more I look.

Any complaints about the skirt not being a credible form of battle dress don’t really have a leg to stand on when almost the entirety of tbleague’s previous catalogue consists of various combinations of completely unrealistic ‘sexy armour’’. Wink The only difference is that this *particular* fantasy outfit covers more skin than usual and thus has at least somewhat wider appeal than their usual scantily clad figures that cater primarily to the ‘male gaze’.

I can totally imagine them turning this into a series with an Imperial Whatever getting the sword. Why else would they exclude it now, considering they've obviously already produced it?

When I see this kind of armor I always picture the character in a fantasy setting anyway, where magic plays a factor in protection as well as attacks that wouldn't be blocked by armor anyway. ^^

Heh, yeah I should have said 'not credible, as usual' Smile

What I meant was that I like what I can see of the skirt/top (or dress if it's one piece) just as a piece of clothing that I'd buy on it's own. Armour of any kind doesn't appeal to me personally so I'd probably just get the sculpt and the skirt/dress (and yeah okay the spear, because it's cool Very Happy ).

While the sculpt looks virtually identical to Galaxy Soldier there's just something about this one I prefer, although as always I'll wait to see something other than TBL's promo pics before I buy.

I preordered this one. I like the TBleague figures, but the environment where I live does not and I have a couple of Phicen/TBleague bodies that have cracked and split open. Having the most vulnerable joints (the arms/elbows) covered is probably better for me lol.

At least lips are pretty easily repainted, if one so chooses! Smile Or you could always swap the head entirely for another one...

Honestly, that was my first thought. I like the head sculpt enough, but the helmet down looks good — so, I’d use the sculpt for something else, and put some crap sculpt under the helmet to display it with the visor down.

Saw on ebay that this figure is getting parceled out. Hopefully that means it's coming out soon, I feel like I've been waiting forever on this one, lol.

From the pictures I saw it looks like all of the armor is removable, and the body appears to be the typical s22/s23 type. Even though I already have one pre-ordered from BBTS, I bought myself a pair of the armored feet since I have need of them for another character I'm working on. I think these might be the only Phicen compatible armored feet without any heels on them.
