Where Are You, Rachel?

Posted by Psykhophear (939 posts) -

I admit, video game chicks rock and Rachel from the Ninja Gaiden series is no exception. Rachel is my favorite video game chick with Kasumi and Mai Shiranui being second and third respectively and for good reasons. She’s strong, voluptous, sensitive and simply hot! That being said, a japanese toy company called Kotobukiya made a few Ninja Gaiden figures to complement with the XBOX title way back in 2004 and Rachel was one of them.

I’ve been wanting to own this figure for so long but for some reason, this particular Rachel figure is extremely rare and it only makes a brief appearance on eBay and Amazon. I did find this guy from Japan on eBay the other day who was selling this figure but I declined the purchase because I found it to be quite expensive. I tried bargaining with the guy but he refused. Sadly, the bidding ended a few weeks later and what was left were some unpainted Rachel figures from Thailand. No offense to the Thai people but come on, who the hell wants to second-hand paint job?

If anyone is planning to sell this gorgeous Rachel figure or knows anyone who’s doing the same thing, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I must have it for my collection! The least I can do for now is to watch this cutscene of her from Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. Sigh!

i was never a big fan of rachel. she would of been cool but the breast physics made anything involving her difficult to watch. to add to that i found her combat to be way too slow. maybe it's just me. she's still badass though. the figure looks cool !

@AjayRaz: Yeah, the breast physics is a cocky gimmick but effective I guess :P.

I thought Racheal sucked as a character personally.

Rachel and Christie are my favourite female characters. You, sir, have excellent taste.


Speaking of which, those two placed #1 and #3 respectively on the gametrailers female action game character rankings. 

Sadly, I DO have that figure - but only the one, and I ain't selling it. I've tried looking for a second, but I'm not paying hundreds of dollars for one.
