Exclusive First Look Preview: Kabuki Models Bug Hunter and The Fool
The guys are Kabuki Models are at it again! They sent along two pictures of the concept art used to create two of their newest figures from. We are told that these two figures are coming from the foundry very soon, and WarGameGuru will be taking a more in-depth look at both of these pieces, and Anubis just as soon as they can get them to us!
The first is the Bug Hunter, who looks a lot like Vasquez from Aliens at first glance, but a closer look reveals that she's more of their take on Marcus Fenix from Gears of War. Only she's arguably a little curvier. Technically now that I really think about it, isn't Marcus a male version of Vasquez only cooler, since she came first? There are some visual similarities, both have the doo-rag, dark hair, and both love annihilating aliens. That's something to think about.
The Fool is also another new piece from the Dark Messiah line. This guy is looking pretty mean for concept art. I can only imagine how nice the finished product will look. They've already proven that they aren't afraid to take things to the next level with previous releases.
For more information on Kabuki Models until then, be sure to check the in-depth In Focus Review we did below, which also includes an interview with Rodolfo and Aurelio of Kabuki Models that I just added as a bonus the other day!
