Baroness (2009)

Since the reveal of sideshow’s beautifully rendered 1/6 scale Baroness figure this week, I thought I’d try to dig for a comparable 3 3/4 inch figure. The female form is something of a challenge to render in small scale, and the Baroness’ various plastic incarnations over the years have ranged from passable to downright fugly.

This one, from a Retaliation three pack, is a true mash-up of parts that is only

A lot has been said about the angst and hate that came about when the Sigma 6 concept was introduced. I recall at the time being intrigued
