I certainly do hope so because Gogo Figurine looks more Caucasian than Japanese. Her nose and lips are too big. The proportion of her feet to the rest of the body is not very correct either.. bigfoot!

I think her nose is too big too. And her feet should be more petite. I think they really exaggerated her nose. Chiaki does have a slightly larger nose, but not like fucking Gonzo from the Muppets.

Good thing it is not the final sculpt.

I fuckin hope that's not the final sculpt, or paint, it really looks okward. She looks way too big, and her face doesnt look right, the first one in the teaser image looked better, shit.

Yeah they look cool alright.

Apparently according to Randy at NECA, the Go Go face has been resculpted 2 times since that prototype figure i posted earlier. So anyone with any worries about the face - its probable that they improved it. When they post a pic of the new face i will be the first to post it here for all to see.

The second series of Kill Bill figures havnt been announced yet but you could probably expect -

Bride (different version - hopefully in black jacket with Sword on back and pistol)
Bill
Budd
Elle

Hopeful of -
Vernita Green
Pai Mei
Hattori Hanzo
and i would be psyched if they could make a Anime version of O-ren in red suit with sniper rifle.

They are now available with the new Gogo. On the first page of this thread, Ursurper posted a pic from the "first" Gogo.
So here isn´t the final Gogo posted, but if you buy the figure you will have the last facecreation of her.

Ursurper will post it as soon as possible. He is from Australia and maybe yet not on board.  I´m pretty curious about it. I think the Bride looks really awsome, but if they make Gogo better, I wanna see it.

Ferryl - NECA have apparently finished the final sculpts of Go Go and O'ren (supposedly just changes to the faces) but they just havnt yet posted any pics of the final sculpts - which they probably will do very soon im told. When they do i'll post them here first thing though.

Killertoys are only just advertising the prototypes for promotional order purposes only. There's probably a fine print somewhere saying that figure lineups and designs could be subject to change completely. Apparently the figures are due to be released in April sometime, im not 100% certain though.

NECA Kill Bill figures should retail for about $10 to $14 US depending on where you buy them im told. This seems the average US price for McF and NECA figures. In Australia we have to pay about $35 to $40 AUST for good quality figures like these.


Oh did i also mention i bought this little gem today?  :D  :D

It's Kaneda from AKIRA!!! McFarlene is so awesome!!!
I have the Kaneda version with the googles & flame thrower, and the Joker King!!! But man, you're so lucky you found the model with the bike, I want to so bad!!!

Cant wait for the Kill Bill figures too!!! Neca surpassed my expectations, the figures are nice.
I really dont care if there isnt much articulation, I collect toys for display, and not to play. But they should have one crazy 88 figure with a button in his back, and when you press it, hell fall to pieces (like the crash test  dummies toys), so itll look like the brides sliced & diced that sucka. corny huh? i d still think it be cool.

An update on the status of the O'ren figure -

"Miramax and Quentin gave their blessing on O-Ren however Lucy Liu has an additional approval over the use of her likeness on KB merchandise. We are awaiting her response.

Since we want to have these figures in stores in April for the DVD and for Kill Bill Volume 2 we need to move ahead. Retailers need to solicit orders and we do not want to delay production. For now we given retailers images and details that do not include O-Ren. It is my sincere hope that we can add her in time but that depends on the feedback we get from Lucy Liu.
If she does not make the cut we can hope for Series II.

Either way I feel you will be pleased with Series I and we have packed in a ton of detail and some very cool features never attempted in action figures before. Yes, the CRAZY 88 will have removable limbs that will spray blood (well disappearing red ink - but close enough)

Back to work
Randy

Reel Toys"


I hope they get the O'ren figure done in time. So it now seems the crazy 88's will have blood squirting action. I would have preferred plastic blood stick on sprays rather than childish squirting action. But it doesnt really bother me either because im not going to use it anyway.

Thats sounds awesome. I dont know exactly how that spurting blood thing will work and ho wmessy it'll get but I like their new ideas.

Lucy Liu should make up her mind soon on the figure approval. I would like to own these figures in April.

Ok latest news on the O'ren Figure -

Lucy Liu has approved her likeness on the figure so it will be in Series 1 along with the rest.

Here's some pics out of a recent Lees Toy Review magazine -

Im not 100% sure this is the final sculpt but apparently it is (although ive heard no official word on this). Sure it doesnt look 100% like Liu but its the best your gonna get with a figure, i actually think it looks pretty damned good. Also note that the sculptor has copied Liu's infamous lazy right eye and freckled complexion (which is kinda hard to see on the so-so quality pics).

UPDATE -

That pic i posted of O'ren is not the final sculpt, sure it looks pretty good, but NECA have confirmed its not the final sculpt. That pic is actually a couple of months old. Apparently the final sculpt is indeed improved upon that pic above (they've improved the face).

anyways heres the official word -

"We did not promote the fact the O-Ren images were in there because they were not the final prototype. Those images date back a few months ago from a Lee's shoot that was done for an article about the making of the Kill Bill Action Figures.

I think O-Ren looks good in those images but I think she looks great in her final form. Most of you should know how lighting/angle/paint can alter the way a sculpt looks not to mention that we were still adjusting the eyes and bone structure of her face at that time.

I will try to post official images tomorrow

Thanks

Ill post them when i see them.

Theres a whole new section up on the Kill Bill figures at the new NECA website. Im assuming the figures are all final sculpts, and most look pretty good.

Yeah. I was let down when I heard that McFarlene wasnt doing it. Shit. I think NECA did pretty good job though (I think the Bride is the mose COOLEST one ever). I was expecting all of them to look like the Old-School GI joe figures.
