Lineage II Human Mage 1/8 Scale Figure - New, In Stock

«©NCSX» Mages in olden adventure games from the 80s were generally male, wrinkled, and looked a lot like Gandalf from the Hobbit. An old school mage also wore robes and carried around a wooden staff that was as old and gnarly as he was. It wasn't a pretty sight.

NCsoft wouldn't have any of that when developing the Lineage MMORPG. Their mages would be young. Supple. Half nude. With sandy blonde hair. Mages in Lineage would actually be attractive and break from the staid conventions of yore.

Good Smile Company has released the second figure in their Lineage II toy line and collectors are treated to the vision of a Human Mage who works her magic with a "metal" staff and edgy apparel that we can only describe as medieval beach wear. Her eyes are light-blue and gloss shines from her lips. Ms Mage's left leg is painted to appear as if she's wearing hosiery while her right leg is adorned with a blue-colored legging. She rocks a pair of gold-gilded blue boots that matches her ensemble. The Mage figure is set to 1/8 scale and measures 22cm or 8.66" tall. The sculpture is by
Nakao Yoshimasa who did a beautiful job and basically made us instant fans of his work.
