    Hello. I was wondering, since I've been trying to find one but am not completely sure what I'm looking at at times...what's the 'definitive' Motoko Kusangi figure for Ghost in the Shell? There's that superposeable one from Stand Alone Complex that I see, and I noticed a Real Action Heroes one just came out. I've seen figures that come with Tachikomas. Basically I'd really like one of the Major but am a bit clueless which to get. Any suggestions? Any I'm forgetting or simply not aware of?

    Well, there are two, but they are worlds apart.

    The one that comes with the Good Smile Tachikoma is awesome, but she is tiny, smaller than a GI Joe. And you have to buy a $175 Tachi to get her.

    The RAH version is awesome, but it's 12 inches tall. So you can see the difference in product there.

    Luckily for me, I own both. :) 

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Oh, and there is the Yamato version, but it's in the skanky uniform version, which I don't really care for.

    The GSG Mokoto that comes with the Tachi is very awesome indeed, albiet very very small.

    The Tachi is pretty nice, too.

    Unfortunately, there's no real "definitive" best figure. Just lots of very different ones.

    I couldn't care less about the outfit, but those hips are god awful. There's no good reason for them to be that wide. And I haven't heard too many good things about that figure, anyways. Also entirely out of scale with anything else that isn't a fixed-pose statue.

    Heh, I acutally have a Fuchikoma (Tachikoma?) book that has a bunch of 3D model kits in it...

    Never had the heart to take the book apart and make it.

    I'm a bit annoyed there's no decent GITS action figure, I'm not too keen on the RAH one for some reason either.

    I wonder if Kaiyodo might do one for the Revoltech line?

    Thank you, all of you! I appreciate the info. I like the posability of the skanky one, but yeah I'm not big on the outfit. I'd seen the one with the Tachikoma but it's so bite-size...I suppose I could save up and pick up the Tachikoma and the RAH one. That's where I'm leaning at the moment.

    And yes, I'd love if Kaiyodo would release a Revoltech Kusanagi!

    Figma or bust. Revoltech's human figures suck.

    I've actually ordered an extra Revoltech Revy, and am gonna try and customise it to a Mokoto, shouldn't be too hard. File away some details, stick some new paint for the suit and hair and she's pretty much there.
