Kabuki Models have put up their limited edition Vixen Lord for pre-order, the latest of their scifi pin-up models that bares a striking resemblance to a certain dark lord from a galaxy far, far away.
This limited edition version of the model comes with an alternate head option (bare head) as well as in a custom packaging signed and numbered by the character designer Alessandro Shin Trombetta, making this a nice piece for collectors.
As a model this is quite a good sculpt. There is a lot of action going on here, while the pose comes straight out of a cheesey scifi pin-up poster. Having said that, when I look at this, the only thing I can think of is just how uncomfortable those armour plated underwear can be. Seeing the head of the most recognisable villain of all time on that body is also a little distracting.
Standing at 75mm in scale, this model is a collector’s piece that will provide a cool and rather different painting challenge. I’d especially like to see some red glow effects coming from the lightsabre.
Will you serve Kabuki’s Vixen Lord?
