I think this superior to the Dragon Age figures I've seen at my local comic book store. The costumes were accurate, but the figures looked awful. The characters had more identifiable features than the Asari characters in ME, but the differences in appearance in the Asari are almost entirely based on COLOR! Until I see it colored, I won't pass judgement.

Really the design looks just like the Marvel and DC characters that are getting made into Japanese figures, which I believe is also being done by Kotobukiya.

Beryl77:
I don't really like it that much. It just looks nothing like Liara, both the face and the breasts are completely different, the only thing that they have in common is the race.

What? Theres a face on that model? Surely you jest!

Dear God that is not how I visioned my Mass effect Universe :( It was never about sex it was about the different races coexisting and the universe and the characters. Bioware you make me sad

i wonder if you order this you also get the copy of mass effect that fox news was talking about

Damn it ladies, people with bigger boobs than you are people too. In particular, they're more attractive people than you. That's okay.

This is showing what Liara might have been like if Bioware was trying to make us imagine less clearly that there's probably not a vagina in there.

Someone mind explaining why they chose to go with the anime style in the first place?

And what was wrong with just making statues of the character the way she really looks?

I can't even get around the idea that Bioware wanted this made...

It makes no sense...

Bioware fans hating a character being sexed up and generally being altered without their knowledge or fan-girlish approval.

Surely you Jest!

I was pretty surprised Bioware fans objected to the boobs. That community is full of perverts.

O.T. They might as well have cut to the chase and made a statue of a massive pair of alien boobs.

Hey! Just because the Nude Patches for their games is always on the top10 downloaded mods you dont have to judge them as the majority. Im sure a lot of Bioware folks dont even download mods in the first place. Second, Bethesda's games are aswell. and Shooters with female characters... I think Gamers in general tend to have a pretty large ammount of perverted folks. Just saying.

Even then, the forums are full of threads about wanting to fuck characters. Even some mods there got in on it once.
Sure, a lot of gamers and game communities are perverted but the pervert population in the Bioware fan community is the most prevalent I've seen.

Daystar Clarion:
This will be an item in Mass Effect 3: Weeaboo Hooker Edition.

Bloody Japanese and their obsession with huge tits.

(Not that all Japanese are obesessed mind you, but it is very apparent in anime.)

Isn't that an Okami avatar? You are the ladt person who should be using words like weeaboo.

For a Kotobukiya statue it's actually downright subdued. At least she's wear her regular outfit and not the stripper costume.

I'm a fan of Japanese mythology and folk-lore. Okami is based extensively on these things.

I'm also a fan of God of War, based around Greek mythology, and Assassin's Creed which is set in a myriad of locations, including Jerusalem during the Crusades and Italy during the renaissance.

Don't presume to know me based on an avatar.

Both the body and the face are wrong, but we've all realised that by now. What gets to me is that even if this was just a random Asari stripper the face would still be wrong, on account of the fact that the average Asari stripper is probably in her 70s.

And I also wish people would stop throwing around the term 'Bishojo' like it's some kind of defence. It just means young, pretty girls. But because there's a single Japanese word for it, well, now it's an art style!

I like those japanese cartoons and I like sex effect. This is the perfect marriage between the two for me. It's a good piece of art and I don't care what anyone thinks.

That's less Liara and more a support for a giant pair of boobs.

Seriously, that really doesn't look like her.

....That's supposed to be Liara? Hell, I get that it's in a very different art style than Mass Effect's, but christ, that has almost no resemblance to the character in question. Needless to say, I don't really approve. I get what they're trying to do, but....I don't know, it just doesn't seem to go with Mass Effect that well. Space strippers, Jack not wearing clothes and Samara's granny boobs aside, it really doesn't even have any revealing female costumes, either. This whole thing just comes of as weird to me.

It fits in with the entire range of their models under that brand. All their Marvel and DC are the same.

Hopefully they do it, but they also do some nice realistic versions, like their star wars range

awesome figure! can't wait to buy it!

just remember, her mother, matriarch benezia, had a hell of a rack on her. perhaps as asari age, their breasts get larger, maybe she's just at the point where she's finally filling out.

EDIT: her mother also had a moustache, so lets hope THAT'S not part of the asari aging process as well...

I love Liara and I'd buy a figurine of her in a heartbeat. Only, this isn't Liara. I'm ok with the pose, I can also look past the upgrade in bust size, it's the face that bugs me, Liara is cute enough not to need a moe look.
And this coming from a manga/anime/JRPG fan.

Are we all agreed here that Liara (and in fact, her entire race) was designed to be sexy and appeal to males in particular? If so, I don't really see the problem.

And falling over. I like tits as much as the next guy, but putting 2 balloons in there and inflating them as far as they will go, then squeezing them between her arms so that it doesn't seem physically possible to remain upright doesn't really strike me as "attractive". Neither does that face, which was apparently modeled after a 12 year old.

the anime nerd in me likes. the ME nerd in me dislikes.

As far as bishojou, they got it.

boooooooooooooooooooooooooooobs....

*shakes head* OK.... think straight for a second...

This thing doesn't look a THING like her, the face is so generic and 'pretty...'
Sure if you're gonna make a generic thin, hot, 90% boob-by-Bodymass (or BbB as i call it) then its a complete success...
But if you're aiming to make a Liara model, Epic... Fail...

Anyway, where was i... boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...

Bioware might not have wanted it. It could have been there retard overlords at EA who declared at some dark ritual "NEED MASS EFFACT WEEABOO MODAALS NAO!!!"

And thus from japanophile hell this model was summoned for the overlords, and inflicted upon an unprepared and unawares world...

its pretty pathetic that nowadays the only way to make girl seem sexy is make huge 95% revealing boobs, camel-toe tight clothing or very little of it and stupidly high heels!

Please please please stop consulting fans. Or you will find out very soon why most companies don't.

Its a cool model, but I agree with the part "doesnt look like Liara". Still think they should make it. Believe me, seen worse statues :D

Oh, Bioware. The lulz never stop with you<3 So basically they hentaified her, amusing.

That's quite the scultp..... damn them some big titties!

Oh for fucks sake... I just hope they do not try something like this with Tali'Zorah... That is not Liara and as many has said, kill it with fire!

Should come with the following disclaimer:

Statuette is known to inexplicably topple over, from time to time.

I think the least popular of the FemShep options got more than 3,500 likes. I don't exactly care myself (I'm not the target market for little resin anime figurines in any case), but based on that, I'd advise Bioware to tread carefully.

Wow is that thing ugly. It'd understand if the cleavage was a little excessive, but that's ridiculous, and the expression kills the whole thing.

Catchy Slogan:
Why does Bioware keep pissing all over their own work?

Because George Lucas has lost his.... oh, sorry... you said BIOWARE. My bad.

Yeah, Kotobukiya does some NICE work, and I like the statue. However, Liara, it is NOT.

GRRRRR BIOWARE FANBOY RAAAAAAGE!

Nah, I don't give a crap. I just wont buy the damn thing.

Hate to say it,but that isn't Liara T'Soni. Liara's cute,not sexy. The difference is subtle,but it's there (and the difference is often defined by several cup sizes). Admirable effort,but this kind of figurine is best suited for Miranda Lawson.
