Rana joins her fellow Sexy version cast of Satellizer and Ingrid and much like with the ladies before her she’s presented lying down wearing next to nothing, hence the obligatory sexy attribute. Past experiences with these larger Freezing figures however have shown a varying quality.
The first thing I noticed with Rana is that she’s somehow bigger than both Ingrid and Satellizer despite the trio’s shared scale. While length and height is near identical, the body mass is more fleshed out with Rana, making her even more impressive looking.
You’re given a few choices when it comes to the clothing, or lack thereof, with the help of a very informative manual. The shirt, breast binding and fishnet stockings all go on or off based on preference. Personally I find that all combinations do work in the figure’s favor but if I had to pick a specific one it would be on/on/off; elegant stockings and fundoshi do not make the greatest of pairs.
My main concern with FREEing’s Rana is that she doesn’t resemble the character that well. If you’ve read or watched Freezing you’ve come across a very lively and proud Tibetan girl who isn’t exactly shy when it comes to nudity. With Satellizer you had timidity, with Ingrid confidence and poise but with Rana you get a deadpan expression slapped on a face otherwise filled with excitement and resolve.
A lesser concern but probably worth mentioning is that included in the box is also a small support stand for her buttock so she doesn’t tilt over.
So what’s good about Rana? Pretty much everything else if we exclude the emotionlessness and questionable rump transplant. I dig the attention to detail for its size (hands, feet, stigmata on the back) and the rough but natural sculpt (pelvic area, thighs). Another area where you see improvement is the castoff portion in where all the parts actually fit rather than fall off at the slightest touch.
