Annika: Sub5 Agent
Agent Annika is a 4 inch figure by Spylounge.net. It's technically a custom, but one of those customs that are produced in large quantities. They're for sale from the website for about $7 with another $5.95 shipping. I got mine on e-bay for $7, $3 shipping.
The articulation is odd. The shoulders, biceps, elbows, and wrists are all articulated, but the legs... They have a cut hip joint, which creates the old "V" sit. And no foot articulation, which makes adjusting the legs to get a better balance a big "not happening." But you do get a figure stand to prop the figure up. There's a newer version of this figure (I got it on e-bay so I got an old one) that features ball jointed hips, but it doesn't come with an alternate head. I don't know if I got the better version.
Its got some pretty good accessories. 2 guns, which is nice, but also a swapable head so she's wearing a hood, a pair of sunglasses, a vest that covers up her cleavage, and this other thing that I don't know what it is. I think it has something to do with the alternate head, but I'm not sure what.
I think if I get back into 4 inch figures I'll try to get one of the other characters in this line with the updated body. They all use the same body, but there's original head sculpts for each character. Probably go with one that doesn't have long flowing hair so you can utilize the neck joint.
If you decide to get this, then I'd advise keeping the sunglasses on. If you take them off then...
Poor girl, badly painted eyes have given her a lazy eye.
