This is Meshi, here to serve up another heaping helping of figure previews.
Mobile Suit Gundam: ZZ is certainly a product of its time and worth revisiting if you want to understand the psychology of series creator Yoshiyuki Tomino. Speaking of getting into your head, today's figure, Elpeo Ple, is one character that made me the man I am today. Let's dig in!

Watch out, here comes Ple and she's bringing 80s fashion with her! Those loud neon greens and yellows are from a different era but the perfectly proportioned sculpt could only be possible thanks to modern technology.

According to canon Ple is only 10 years old. Let's just assume that her accelerated development is related to being a Newtype and sweep that fact under the rug.

Ple is shorter than her costars, hence the playful upward expression. She doesn't need to initiate a Newtype mind-meld to know what I'm thinking!

If you're having a hard time seeing the details of her itty-bitty waist, click the image to expand. Normally a bishoujo with her butt sticking out would register as sexy but with Ple is just looks innocent! Maybe it's because her loud outfit is silencing my impure thoughts. If anything it provides contrast to the deep purple of her Qubeley Mk-II.

Swap out her arms for a pose with a punch of coquettish sass! Ple's got enough positive genki power for two and she's not shy about sharing.

She's practically tripping over herself in her excitement. Don't worry honey, uncle Meshi's got you!

And I haven't even touched upon the skin sculpt yet! Check out those smooth fingers and perfect round anime mouth. Yessir, her fluorescent outfit isn't the only thing that makes her stand out from other figures.

Those colors look like they glow in the dark but the studio lighting brings out the most detail. You can make out each individual braid in the rope and wrinkle in her stockings. 'Gotta respect the realistic bunching on the garter belt!

Often imitated, never duplicated (in terms of personality, anway), Elpeo Ple is a one of a kind girl that demands a special place in the Gundam mythology--and your figure shelf!
