Figma BRS2035 Part 3

Show-stealing pigtails and wings

A look at Figma BRS2035's articulation design after the previous posting. ^^

Horizontal tilt is not a problem at all for the head.

Vertical tilt is very easy as well.

BRS2035's two large pigtails are connected to her head using Figma joints. From the side, they can swivel upward and downward.

Via the hinges on the Figma joints, the pigtails can be bent upward/downward from the back as well.
There's certainly a lot of posability with the two hair parts lone. ^^

Standard articulation for the shoulders and arms.

As the shoulder joint used is in black (obviously to match the jacket's color), it's quite difficult to spot the movable split on the joint to properly adjust them.

Side-to-side and forward-backward bends are possible for the waist.
The split between the chest and abdomen is right beneath her bikini top, with the string being the edge. It's a very clever design to give the body a seamless appearance while preserving the articulation. ^^

The jacket is made of soft plastic.

Standard ball-type joints for the hips.

Thanks to her simple short pants design (^^), the hips can move flexibly, with great ease.

Standard articulation range for the knee I would say.

Standard articulation range for the ankle joint.

The wings on the back of BRS2035's waist have their own set of articulation capabilities. ^^

The wings are connected to the body via Figma joints. The design is completely the same as her pigtails it seems.

Using the joints, the wings can swivel upward and downward from the side.

Two smaller fins on the wings can be adjusted upward or retracted.

The fins' joints are evidently angled in a way so that the fins would move away from the wings when they are expanded, but would rest on top of them when retracted. ^^ It's a very simple yet effective design to add more than just one level of movement to the fins. ^^

Like the pigtails shown earlier on, the wings can be bent upward/downward from the back as well.

The wings can be removed, ...

... but the two large slots behind BRS2035 suggest you to keep the wings on instead. ^^;

The figure looks even more closer to her original design with the wings removed. ^^

She is able to stand a lot easier without the wings too. ^^

Some action poses of Figma BRS2035 after the introduction on its articulation design:

Connecting the right hand unit to Rock Cannon is not an easy task actually. The handle is one solid rod located inside the cannon's stock, with a bar right on top of it that blocks the view when you're trying to get the hand unit to grab onto the handle. It's obligatory to have the hand unit separated from the arm before attempting to get it to hold the weapon. ^^; Even with that, it's still a troublesome task that makes mounting the cannon onto the stand with an already posed BRS2035 a piece of cake. ^^;

More action poses from Figma BRS2035 coming up in the next posting, which will be the last one for this review series. ^^
