Available in resin or white metal. Heroic 28mm scale.
There is no doubt that many of the Jailbirds are a bit of crazy loose cannons... But when you meet Yoko, you wouldn't expect her to be one of the craziest of the bunch... With her childish laugh and her cute demeanor, she looks a bit like a teenage girl. But Yoko only has one burning interest in life: fire! Whether using a tiny box of matches or a heavy flame thrower, nothing makes her happier than dancing flames and... dare we say it?... the smell of napalm in the morning...
THE JAILBIRDS DIVISION (JB)
(We nicknamed them the Rambettes.) They were the ones that started it all. They are a bunch of low-life bad-ass big-attitude girls who all ended up in planetary prison held by the Kurganov government. In the game, they will be used as small penitentiary contingents led by the Kurganova Shock Troops, or as a full autonomous faction (because, as you can easily imagine, many of them have escaped captivity). They are commando-style units with nothing to lose, and they specialise in acquiring enemy equipment for their own purposes.
If anything, Yoko looks even better in the resin than in the photo here; As a set of components she looks a fairly awkward sculpt, but once assembled (reader, a careful 'dry run' and some preparatory pinning is advised) And viewed in three dimensions, there's a real sense of movement and (im)balance to the finished mini; Of mass, action and reaction as a lanky girl swings around a heavy piece of (dangerous!) Hardware.
The casting itself was crisp and clean, with the only major work necessary being some filling on the back-pack fuel cannister. One thing worth noting is that Yoko is fairly tall compared to the other girls (and other manufacturer's mini's) - A shade over 35mm, if she was standing straight, although her pose does make this less obvious.
My Yoko is currently showing assorted 'Mad max' wannabes that petrochemicals are good for much more than fuel; And the mini seems like it would be most at home in post-apocalyptic or survival-horror backgrounds, rather than in most peoples military. Although, while it's difficult to see her fitting into any regular force, irregulars, rebels, and guerillas of all kinds might be interested in her services.
Mind, it's probably more a case of having her where they can keep an eye on her than anything else. . .
