"Poison" PVC Figure Black, Capcom Girls

Masauzi Yoshizawa, REFLECT sculptor, originally created Poison as a garage kit which was followed by a finished PVC figure version (images on Rendered Beauty). For the third incarnation, Poison now sports blonde hair and wears black micro shorts.

The figure is set at 1/6 scale and measures 28cm (11.02") tall from her spiky heels to the top of her removable cap. A pair of handcuffs is included in the product packaging to serve as a nifty accessory. Poison's eyes are light-green and accentuated by pink eye shadow.
Poison is a character from the Final Fight video game. Originally the character was planned as a female. Capcom of Japan received a phone call from a Capcom USA rep opposing violence against women, so the developers changed Poison and another game charact called Roxy into newhalfs (or futanari in Japanese).

When Capcom USA translated the game, they were unaware of this, and replaced the characters with male versions. Because of this, there is still debate among fans about their true gender (despite the fact that Capcom has officially declared in manuals and sourcebooks that she is in fact a newhalf).
