Jessica Review
The sorceress whose temper is just as hot as she is, sports 15 points of articulation (correct me if I\'m wrong). She comes with the usual display stand, a wand that is so small that can easily be lost and an extra open hand with a hole for holding her small wand. So yes, the bad thing happened -- I lost her little wand and I was forced to recreate it with a high-quality dark wood toothpick and a purple pearl. In the end, I did not regret losing her little wand because the wand itself is poorly-detailed compared to the makeshift toothpick wand.

Jessica and Yangus are two lesser-poseable among the four. Jessica\'s legs have articulation on them but you can\'t pose them much because her long \"inflated\" skirt isn\'t made from soft PVC and therefore being very intrusive. The whip, Jessica\'s alternate weapon, is molded on her waist and cannot be used in posing with the figures. The creators of this Play Arts figure is either too lazy to include an alternate weapon (whip) or just focused on the magical girl ego of Jessica. Since whip is molded in her waist, there is no other weapon that you can give her, so I highly recommend that you permanently glue the little wand on her hand or it might get lost.

Despite the flaws on Jessica and her one and only accessory, she is still a pretty girl to behold. Her face and hair are well-sculpted and so are her clothes. Even her small earrings are given accurate paint details.

The good:
- Intricate figure sculpting, faithful to Toriyama-san\'s design.
- Display Stand included to stabilize Jessica when on display.

The bad:
- Too small, not even in scale with the Final Fantasy figures.
- Easy-to-lose wand + no whip...sigh.
- Posing her without the display stand guarantee low stability as her feet are too small and the weight of her long skirt is an added burden.
