Fixin’ Up Some Figurines, part 2 –  Lizard Boobs Edition

While we’re likely to go back to fixing some Dark Sword Miniatures in the future, this here dragonkin lady was the reason I proposed redesigning the figurines in the first place. 
The butt cape window was always amazingly mesmerizing, considering it displays her very human glutes with no trace of reptilian tail, which would be much expected in such character design. 


So I simply changed her metal thong into a decorative belt that rests on the base of her new big tail. 

Another obviously non-lizard anatomy on her were the human breasts, adorned with a really ugly boobplate. So I flattened her chest and redesigned the breastplate to be more interesting, while still exposing some of the pec. 


Also added a tiara with a matching jewel, for some non-tiddy-based feminine touch. Her weapon/scepter got a matching jewel as well. 

It’s one of the subtler redesigns, but also one with more deliberate process behind it. Hope you like it! 


So…  the Fate series started with a frankly amazing female character, Saber* but since then they’ve… well they haven’t been really respecting the concept that they started with.  This one however… well it looks like they decided they need to go back closer to the original look while still trying to find ways to pointlessly sexualize her.

From episode 2 onward of the latest series the opening credits of Fate: Last Encore are just ninety seconds of this version of Saber hacking up literal shadow opponents in a shadow maze in a manner to flaunt her T & A.

Kind of disappointing for a series that is supposed to be about all manner of mythical heroes, now seem

* Yes, we are aware this is technically not the same character due to Fate’s obsession with alternative universes, and the universe in Last Encore being very alternative… but putting “identically named variants on a broad character concept” doesn’t parse as well.

Where should we even start?


That figure’s design fails at everything it supposedly wanted to do, for the sake of “sex sells”. And it’s just sad.

*funnily, the butt window could be somewhat justified if she at least grew a tail, yet she doesn’t for reasons unknown









Done and done.

(Not pictured: “Butt window”, but trust me, it’s there.)

You have no idea how much this cheered me up just now.

I for one, think this is a major improvement. Look how empowered he is! And it’s relevant to the character as someone who is powered by the sun, he’d want to maximize the amount of sunlight he receives, right? It’s not like it makes sense for him to cover himself from chin to toe.
In fact, I think some strappy sandals might be an improvement.

strappy high heeled sandals would increase his height making him closer to the sun. and if wonderwoman can fight in heels it can’t be that hard, right?


Felt a dire need to contribute to the hilarity.

Now I can tell right away he’s a strong male character. Whew! No more confusion.

+1 for him doing the boobs and butt pose too.

FINALLY we’re getting a good look at Man of Steel’s cheeks of steel!

Eyup. That’s definitely appropriate outfit to showcase how powerful Superman is. And when that’s not enough of empowerment for him, there’s always the nipple capes 😀
