I was really shocked when I first saw this Ika Musume figure! You don’t always see this kind of one-leg-stand+leaning-on-one-side pose from WAVE, let alone from the Beach Queens series! Leaning is not a problem at all since 2009. All they need to do is insert a piece of ABS in to the leg or just leg out of ABS instead of PVC. It is a easy fix, but it adds extra cost to the manufacturer. That’s why you don’t always see this kind of pose in a cheapo small scale figures. Good Job WAVE! =D

Beside the one-leg-stand pose, this Beach Queens Ika Musume is also very well done! I love her facial expression and the movement of her tentacles a lot. It’s like the Ika Musume really coming out from the TV. Beside this standard edition, a castoffable DX edition is also available. =D
