From the latest PS2 game Final Fantasy X-2 comes the heroine Yuna. The skimpy outfit was a shock to some of the fans (they obviously haven’t learnt from Jill in Resident Evil 3 ), but I’m mostly attracted by her twin guns – many potential for coolnesss

Since I haven’t played the game there isn’t really much to say about her character, but her costume is certainly quite unique. The chest insigna thingy is a great way to reveal more while maintaining complexity, and there are many gadgets she’s wearing (how much time does it take for her to get going in the morning? ) My impression of her half-dress is initially one of annoyance – how does one move with that thing! But then if you look at it artistically, it really isn’t a bad addition. I’m less thrilled about her shorts; certainly a great way to show more legs, but it has that weird 70’s swim suit look.

Anyway the original kit depicts her in a pretty nice standing pose. Although it’s not a bad stance, when you get two guns you’ve gotta wave it at someone! Thus we have this kit titled: “Yuna ~A Better Tomorrow~ directed by John Woo”

Details of modifications from the original kit are in Making of Yuna.
If anyone knows the name of the sculptor please let me know, thanks.

Kit Review

Seam lines: 4/5 Pinholes: 4/5 Casting: 4/5 Fit: 3/5 Part Break: 3/5 Help

There are a few bad breaks, one between the head and the neck which makes removing the seam difficult, and the waist “scarf”/belt assembly is kind of messy, and the scarf requires puttying after painting. If you choose to remove the seam between neck/head, then you’d need to install the cape first.

  1. Hi Cody,
    Visited your excellent web site many times over the years but have not been back for some time. Imagine my surprise when i saw you are selling some of your superb figure models!
    For me, your best ever model was your sublime creation of Mai Shiranui. I have been searching ebay and other sites for this kit for over 10 years, all to no avail.
    Bottom line: if you still have the model and are prepared to sell it to me i would be exceptionally grateful.
    Alternatively, i would be very interested in commissioning you to buy, build and paint the exact same kit , if one could be sourced.
    Hope to hear from you.
    Best regards
    Steve
