Preview: BEACH QUEENS - Girls und Panzer: Maho Nishizumi 1/10 Complete Figure by WAVE

-----Based on our Japanese blog-----

Meshi here, ready to serve up another heaping helping of figure previews. One of the interesting facets of the Girls und Panzer saga is the Nishizumi family drama, namely that centered around Miho and today's subject, her big sis Maho. Let's dig in!

At first glance it's obvious that Maho shares DNA with Miho. The Nishizumi sisters' proportions are as well-balanced as the family's tankery.

Check out the aggressive slope on that glacis plate (that's tank talk for bewbs for all you newbs)! It's no wonder that Maho is the very picture of confidence when she charges into battle.

The folded over top is a clever diversion tactic to make it appear that Maho is showing more skin than she actually is.

Once the enemy has taken your rear you're done for, hence the minimalist design and lack of cover. Luckily for Maho I'm very friendly.

"The ridges of the frame's streamlined design allows for increased armor mass in areas most open to attack." Incredible how much tank encyclopedias overlap with biology books! This is organic design at its greatest.

I've stared down the barrel of a gun and I have to admit; it didn't make me as weak in the knees as looking at Maho's bazookas does.

The folds in the stretched top look just like the anti-magnetic Zimmerit coating famously used by German tanks. Ironically these have quite the opposite effect--I can't take my eyes off 'em!

As always, don't just take our word for it--pick Maho up and perform your own 10-point inspection on her blitzkrieg bod!
